comScore January 2012 Search Engine Rankings

Every month about this time comScore releases the search engine rankings data, and I report it here. These are not the actual search engine rankings that you see when you search at a search engine, which are constantly changing.

The Frager Factor: Seller Schilling, Meet Buyer Whiteley: Ta

“I hadn’t dealt with Frank before and didn’t know who I was dealing with. The prices were high – but they are good domain names and I should get good returns by using them. I think the fascinating thing at the moment is that there still isn’t really a fixed way of valuing a domain yet.”

Is a Microsoft Word Resume Still Acceptable?

Standing Dog is hiring. And we have been receiving a lot of resumes for various open positions that we have, some in social media, some in Search Engine Optimization, and even in the Creative (web design, etc.) areas.

Conde Nast Purchases 285 Reddit Domain Names

When large groups of domain names are purchased such as the one I came across today, most of the time it indicates that the company purchasing them has major plans in the works. That happened today, when I was alerted to the fact that Conde Nast Digital, the folks behind the popular Reddit website, purchased a few hundred domain names. These are no

Microsoft Moves Synsup Labs Domain Names

Those domain names had previously been pointed to the Bing.com search results. Now, the total number of domain names related to Synsup Labs that Microsoft owns is an even 50 domain names, and a name server has be

Microsoft Acquires 47 SynsupLabs Domain Names

In an interesting acquisition today by Microsoft, the company acquired 47 domain names and has pointed them to the Bing.com search engine.

Perhaps this is the indication of a new product, a new service, or upcoming proje

How To Download And Use Your Facebook Information

Facebook has recently been under fire (a lot, I might add) for privacy issues and privacy concerns. I have even written about Facebook email privacy that has gone awry. Many people (not me) are concerned about what they share amongst their friends on Facebook. Some of my family members are concerned about other people (mainly the public) learning a

Search Engine Optimization - How you can Identify Search Engine Ranking Problems with Your Website

I often speak to individuals who declare that they are struggling from poor search engine rankings.

In any situation, the website is definitely suffe

Google Moving Google Map Image in Search Results
