Things that were delicious this week…

by Matt Burgess on March 19, 2010

Every Friday I try to share a selection of things that I found worthy of bookmarking in Delicious during the week. “What’s Delicious”, you may ask? From the horse’s mouth:

The Web is a big place, full of new and interesting things to discover. The problem is finding the good stuff and keeping track of it all. This is where Delicious can help.

Delicious is a Social Bookmarking service, which means you can save all your bookmarks online, share them with other people, and see what other people are bookmarking. It also means that we can show you the most popular bookmarks being saved right now across many areas of interest. In addition, our search and tagging tools help you keep track of your entire bookmark collection and find tasty new bookmarks from people like you.

You can always check out all of my Delicious tags here, but this is a regular column on this site where I bring together the best of the bunch.


Things that were delicious this week – 19 March, 2010

  • Eric Enge shares 29 tidbits from his interview with Matt Cutts, Google’s webspam chief. It’s a great interview with some information that every site owner should pay attention to. Highlights, from my point of view?
    • Confirmation of what I had previously suspected: there is some pagerank loss when a 301 redirect is in place.
    • Duplicate content will affect how many pages Google crawls from your site.
    • Google may transfer pagerank from duplicate pages to the page they consider to be canonical.
  • Nielsen’s 2010 Social Media Report takes a look at how Australian’s are interacting via social networks. How are they using it? Well, the same as you, really. Facebook dominates.
  • Ruud interviews Arnie Kuenn over at Search Engine People, and they discuss some advanced link building topics. I particularly like the part where Arnie says, “You see us talking a lot about link worthy content. We look at a client’s site to see if they have content that people might want to (voluntarily) link to. If not, we often develop content for them. As I mentioned above, a lot of what we do is create link worthy content, not just Linkbait, but real content, then we work hard to promote it“, because it so closely aligns with my beliefs.
  • Tom Webster from BrandSavant talks about practical sentiment analysis for social media… and it’s one of the best posts I’ve read on the topic in a while, purely for the wake up call it serves to all who rely on automated sentiment analysis.

What about you? What did you find delicious this week?
