Flowerville SEO Report

with 2 comments

It’s been two weeks and Google has indexed the content on the homepage of  http://flowerville.ca nicely.  However, Google has ignored the remaining 300 businesses in my directory because they are not referred to from anywhere else on the site or the www.  I built a BROWSE page to list all flowerville stores to remedy this.  So hopefully Google spider will get around to indexing them.

Yahoo and Live Better at Organic Search Results?

without comments

I put together a simple site called http://heartcalories.com a couple of months ago. It provides a simple calories expended vs. heart rate calculator. I implemented all the usual SEO strategies for the site.

I find it surprising that this whole time, almost 100% of users find my site via the organic search of Yahoo or Live. 0% comes from Google. If you search by the keywords “heart rate calories”, http://heartcalories.com shows up as the first item of Yahoo search and Live search. It doesn’t even show up on Google.

So is there any merit to the argument that Yahoo and Live are better at organic search than Google?
