Essential iPhone Application for SEO

Also relates to iPod Touch

I don't make a habit of posting entries pertaining to SEO - leave that to the SEM's! But the recently released Analytics Ap is worth a mention. It provides access to all your Google Analytics accounts with quick access to many key measurements for assessing the performance of your sites and keyword targeting. Would be nice to see the addition of date comparison in a future release - which is one feature I utilise considerably on the main Analytics site. Anyway at £3.49 this is good value and delivers a quick method to wow your clients with their website growth following your SEO recommendations!

Google Search History

Also relates to Firefox and Co

A little behind the competition, Google has just rolled out My Search History Beta which saves your search beahviour and provides quick access to previous searches using a clustered interface. Chris Sherman discusses My Search History in detail over at Search Engine Watch. If like me your requests from the Firefox searchbar are redirected to your locality (eg google.co.uk), the magic variable seems to be lr. So the following src file (in the searchplugins directory of your Firefox installation directory) will ensure all searches go through the MSH application:


<search 
  name="Google History"
  description="Google Search with History Enabled"
  method="GET"
  action="http://www.google.com/search"
  queryEncoding="utf-8"
  queryCharset="utf-8"
>

<input name="q" user>
<input name="hl" value="en">
<input name="lr" value="">
<input name="btnG" value="Search">

</search>

I look forward to seeing how well the clustering engine works as my search results grow…

Syndicate MSN Search Beta

This post does not relate to any other topics

MSN Search is currently experimenting with syndicated search results by providing an RSS feed of their SERPs. A useful addition for keeping a watchful eye on SEO outcomes within a news reader.

Google Implements XMLHTTPRequest

Also relates to DOM Scripting

Live data retrieval has found its way onto Google in the guise of Google Suggest. As well as returning suggestions for the search term as it is entered, each suggestion is accompanied by the number of results, making this quite a useful tool in the initial stage of SEO.

On the client side the concept is really just a reworking of Bitflux's Live Search, although a quick look under the hood at the somewhat obfuscated javascript source shows the Google developers have given preference to the MSXML library instead using XMLHTTPRequest as the fall back when the initial try/catch blocks fail. Of course, Google utilises its immense power on the server side to return results from its 8 billion strong database, based on popularity, in a split second.

Clusty Clustering

This post does not relate to any other topics

Search engines have once again dominated the news the last few days with the release of M$N Beta. Despite the teething problems, speculative allegations, bombing, untimely Google announcements, and a falling out between this website and M$NBot, the engine does not seem too bad. The Beeb has posted a comparison of this and four other major players using three simple tests. In the verdict Ask Jeeves classification system appears to make it the popular choice. Personally I think this pales into insignificance compared to the powerful categorisation offered by the clustering meta-search engines, the latest addition to which is Clusty from the Vivisimo group. I would recommend checking out the Clusty featureset - a Firefox search plugin is also available.
