Seth is right, I’d love a denser search interface. what he proposes sounds relatively easy to build – any extension develop up for weekend project?
Seth’s Blog: We can handle information density
I’d like to suggest a power search feature for a search engine that wants to recapture expert users (DuckDuckGo should know that the people who are most likely to switch are the power users, because power users are always the first to switch…). Show us three columns of results, with an emphasis on the name of the source behind the link and perhaps some data on how often people who click that link hit the back button. It would be easy to imagine a page with twenty or thirty easy to read and easy to follow links. A search engine that trusts us to be smart, fast and make our own decisions.
Here is an interesting Infographic by Single Grain explains Google Panda in plan English. See how Google Panda update provides a huge incentive to produce good content, and protect the search engines and the internet from spammers. Learn more about what can hurt your blog and how to do good link building.
I love the comforting effect good infographic can have onÂ panickedÂ consumers. if only our government would understand that and start producing them instead of just full texts of laws.

While great content will always get you noticed, I have come to the somewhat obvious conclusion that “Content is NOT King, Google is King” on the web. This is a slightly different mindset when it comes to getting traffic and marketing on the net.
I disagree with this article’s intention – the guys frustration is that obsolete sites will suffer even if they have good content – well, guess what, good content is King, but if you put it in a wooden box and ship it to Antarctica, it won’t do much for you either.
If you have good content, you should care about it and make sure it get’s treated well – with modern CMS like WordPress at least, with space to breathe, rather than hidden behind tons of advertising.
Content is King, because people want content. Google might be the first minister, but he is a mere mortal.
