Google has been acting a little mysteriously this week and with a press conference due tomorrow (Wednesday 8 September). The first piece of the announcement arrived last week when a selected number of people were sent invites to a Google press conference in San Francisco. The invites said that Google would be sharing its “latest technological innovation” and would be offering “an inside look at the evolution of Google search”.

If you are in the industry since last few years, you might be aware about the similar event Google has carried out last year when they announced the Google Squared, Rich Snippets and Google Sky. It seems that, Google is coming with series of changes tomorrow & will announce in the event organized.

SEO Training in Ahmedabad

Innovative SEO : Learn & Share All About SEO

Hello Friends,

In last couple of months, I got a chance to meet few entrepreneurs, HR managers & Recruitment consultants. Most of them are complaining about lack of resources in the field of SEO/ Internet Marketing in Ahmedabad/Gujarat. I caught their meaning behind the casual talk & that is, Gujarat is lacking in quality human resources which can backbone the SEO Industry. Being in the Team Lead position since last couple of years, while taking interviews for the vacant positions in the companies, even I have realized that, many candidates which were appearing for the interviews needed some kind of refreshment in terms of knowledge & attitude towards their respective career in this rapidly changing industry.

After giving a deep thought, I realized that, just by raising concern & discussing, this issue will not going to resolve & someone needs to take initiative & start contributing to the industry in best possible capacity. Finally, after lot of consideration, addition, subtraction, multiplication & division of thoughts & feelings, I have decided to conduct a training session for the candidates who would like to advance their career in SEO & Internet Marketing Industry.

SEO Training in Ahmedabad

Well, I have decided that, this will not be every next door training classes or training institute for SEO, but this training will be very focused & limited to few people to meet the objective behind the training & meet the concept behind my decision. So, this training session will have certain limitations.

Objective:

  1. To train the students with quality education & enable them with intellectual tools to explore their career path in the field of SEO.
  2. To help the SEO industry in Gujarat by identifying the current need of industry & deliver the market ready SEO curriculum so that, companies will get the desired candidates to run their business smoothly.
  3. To create pool of quality resource in Gujarat so that, we can move ahead to the next step & have conferences & camps like SES in Ahmedabad which are currently organized at Metros like Chennai, Hyderabad, Banglore & Mumbai.

Strategy:

  1. Start training session for beginners & offer market ready curriculum
  2. Organize training session for existing SEO professionals & enable them with the intellectual tools to grow their career in the industry.
  3. Team-up with existing like-minded people & start organizing small meet-ups to share the knowledge & create a culture of giving back to the society.

Next Step:

Journey of thousand miles begin with a small step and to start with that small step, I am glad to announce that, the first batch of SEO Training will start from 6th September,2010. Here are the few highlights of the training program. Continue reading

Innovative SEO : Learn & Share All About SEO

Hello Friends,

Last few weeks were really challenging for me & was passing throught the ups & downs of life, though it was difficult but enjoyed it too. Google is no more behind in updating its own algorithm for changes & one such update recently they have announced for the webmasters. Yes, today, I would like to share about the changes / updates announced by Google for XML sitemaps.

Google Update : Mixed Media XML Sitemap

Google announced that they’re now accepting mixed-media XML sitemaps. Now, you must be thinking about, what does it mean ? Well, It simply means that, now you can put images, video and regular page URLs all into the same map. I have tried my hands on this when I got notified about this update. According to Google’s post, you have to use all sorts of fancy code to insert images and video into normal XML sitemap. The sample XML sitemap structure will be as shown below, Continue reading

Google and No-Follow Attribute

Innovative SEO : Learn & Share All About SEO

Hello Friends,

Its been a month since I posted my last post on this blog & my mail box have flooded with the emails with complains that the blog is not getting updated. Well, I can not afford to let go my readers like that & hence here is some interesting post for you friends. No, Its not an ordinary article on “NoFollow” attribute, but this is purely based on my research which I have done as a part of my project recently. I would love to know your thoughts & experience about this. So, here you go.

How Google treats “No-Follow” attribute ?

Last week, I was working on an interesting project. The site is comparatively old but does not have a good PR for home page as well as internal pages. The main objective was to get the Service / Product pages in Google SERP ranking. So, I was working hard on back link analysis of successful pages as well as competitor websites which have good rankings in Google. I did good comparative analysis & found few strange patterns. Yes, you get it right, something strange in Backlink patterns. I studied the Google Webmaster Tool to get an idea of how Google treats backlinks patterns.

Now here the great surprise comes to me. I found that, Google shows hardly 10 links for a page which I am targeting & 4 out of 10 links are “No Follow” which has been shown in Google Webmaster Tool. STRANGE … Isn’t it ? As per the Google’s stand on rel=”nofollow”, Google crawler supposed to not follow that particular link. That simply means that, this link is just for the information of visitors & have no value in terms of Google Search Engine, so Why Google needs to count & show this backlink in Webmaster tool ?

On the contrary, I have very good other backlinks for the same page (backlinks from EZine & other reputed PR sites) which has been indexed & shown by Yahoo but Google is not showing up this high reputed backlinks & instead showing up the “No Follow” backlinks. So, Couple of queries arise in my mind. Continue reading
