Update: Pagerank update happened just a few hours after I finished writing this post on April 03, 2010. This blog shows pr2 now with some pr1-pr2 pages. The next one should be in the first days of July…
Last pagerank update happened in December 31, 2009 – January 1, 2010, which means there should be another pagerank update this month, hopefully by mid-April. For those who believe that pagerank is irrelevant, here is a good recent article – Matt Cutts’ Comments on Crawling & Indexation. It certainly doesn’t mean as much as it used to, but it is still a big part of the algorithm.
I haven’t posted for a while, mostly because I’ve been pretty busy with a few new projects and SEO experiments. It is pretty cool what a keyword rich domain name, a dedicated server plus a few relevant links can do for ranking. I was even able to hit #1 position for a simple 1 page landing page.
I am thinking about getting my own colocated server soon and close four hosting accounts that I have now. It will be just a little more than what I pay right now for all four, I’ll probably end up picking something like quad xeon with 8-16gb of ram from ebay. It should be waaay faster than all servers that I have now put together. I believe fast and reliable server will help the rankings even more.
