Google Publishes an SEO Report Card (!!)
This is something I would have thought unlikely to happen. Yesterday Google published what they call an “SEO Report Card”
This report covers 100 of their products and is ostensibly a report for their internal teams to prove the products’ pages with a whole bunch of best practise optimizations. In the course of this, what they are in fact doing is giving the reader a nice guide in basic SEO.
For those of you who are familiar with SEO, I doubt much of it will be new, but this is a move on Google’s part to acknowledge the fact that it is in their interests to have quality sites presented to their algorythm properly.
There are also some good reminders about various Google features such as being able to use Webmaster Tools to geotarget certain domains, subdomains and directories.
