Google stripping out ads for mobile searches

From Google’s official Blog:

If you search for [Super Monkey Ball DS release date] in an ordinary web browser on your PC, your first result is this complex, graphics-rich page. Search that same phrase on Google with your mobile phone, though, and your top result is this lightweight, phone-friendly version of the same page. That’s because now whenever you click on a Google search result through your mobile web browser, Google automatically translates the page’s layout to make it as easy as possible to read on a small screen. We also break long-winded web pages into smaller pieces and do our best to show you the portion that’s relevant to your query, first.

Translation of “easy as possible to read on a small screenâ€? = “we remove the adsâ€?. Isn’t that going too far?

Forward PageRank to your new Domain

Whenever you register a new domain and want to transfer an old PageRank from an old Website to that new address, be sure to use the 301 Code. Here are 3 methods on how to do that properly (pick one):

If you’re using IIS:

* In internet services manager, right click on the file or folder you wish to redirect
* Select the radio titled “a redirection to a URL”.
* Enter the redirection page
* Check “The exact url entered above” and the “A permanent redirection for this resource”
* Click on ‘Apply’


<script runat=”server”>
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
Response.Status = “301 Moved Permanently”;


<%@ Language=VBScript %>
Response.Status=”301 Moved Permanently”
Response.AddHeader “Location”, “http://www.newdomain.com/”


    Header( "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" );
    Header( "Location: http://www.newdomain.com" );

Introducing SEO-Trade.net and SEO-Forum.org

I just went online with SEO-Trade.net. It’s still in Beta Stage but running quite smooth so far. I coded it in ASP.NET (v2) using some of the new techniques. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use the new Login controls and had to build my own ones because I missed some essential features for my purposes.

SEO-Trade.net is a plattform for monitoring your SEO concerns and an marketplace for Link Exchanges. There are many planned features for the future, we’re working hard on improving it every day. A short overview about the idea behind this site:

  • Having a plattform which allows you to monitor your Link Exchanges.
    In detail: Whenever you achieved a Link Exchange with someone and he
    adds your Link to his site, YOU can add his site to your Site Panel
    here at SEO-Trade.net. Our Engine automatically checks now if the link
    still exists on your Linkpartners site. That way you immediately notice
    when someones cheats on you.
  • Another feature of our plattform is our marketplace. Everyone who
    uses SEO-Trade.net has the ability to add his site to our marketplace.
    That way people can easily contact themselves by using our Private
    Messaging System. You can also set trade categories if you’d like to.
  • Nonetheless our System checks every link automatically at midnight
    and sends you an E-Mail if some Link is missing or dead. That way it’s
    very comfortable for you to maintain your SEO work.

I made some stress tests with SEO-Trade.net and it’s really running smooth on IIS6(Windows 2003 Server). I will post some experiences while coding the project soon.
