Top Ten Search Engines

Top Ten Search Engines Surprise

I recently came across a blog that listed the top ten search engines 2007. Some of the interesting developments in 2007 is that the MSN search engine is beginning to lose its global market share. Not to one of the recognized names but to the Chinese Search Engine Baidu.

Also a Korean Search Engine NHN Corp is climbing the rankings fast. Does this mean Search Engine Optimization Specialist will soon need to learn second and third languages to compete with the Global Market ?

If so we could be in trouble cause I also found this top search engines site that lists hundreds of major search engines from around the world. Any one of which may make the list next year.

Google is Cracking Down on SEO with Paid Links

Google has made it official. The era of buying paid links for the purpose of increasing a websites pagerank is over. It has updated its best practices SEO Guidelines to include very clear warnings that SEO involving the buying of links will not be tolerated.
"Buying or selling links that pass PageRank is in violation of Google's webmaster guidelines and can negatively impact a site's ranking in search results."

This was rumored to be part of an algorithm update that affected many sites over the last month and Matt Cutts (Googles Unofficial SEO Spokesman) alluded to this in SEO Search Engine Journal. Now its official.

Well I for one think its about time the to level the playing field for those of us engaged in white hat SEO. Besides I could never afford to pay for links and now I don't have to !

Search engine optimization contest blonde…

Ya OK Search Engine Optimimization can be funny too

A search engine optimization contest blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The search engine optimization blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa."

Again, the search engine optimization blonde declines and tries to get some sleep.
The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."
This catches the search engine optimization blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"
The seo blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay," says the lawyer, "your turn".

She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"
The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mail to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the search engine optimization contest blonde, and hands her $500.00.

The search engine optimization blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the shopautodotca seocontest blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"
Without a word, the seo contest blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.

I'm likely too slow of a blogger to get beyond the basic stuff before the contest ends but you may want to check it out, at the very least your likely to find some useful SEO Tools on the site itself.

Maybe some of the seo contestants in the shopautodotca seocontest may be kind enough to throw it a few blog links, or favorite it or what ever else gives it that Technorati Authority and help me get some more SEO clients so I can feed my family:)

The Shopautodotca SEOcontest is High Maintainence

Shopautodotca seocontest competition heating up

Shopautodotca Seocontest

The Shopautodotca seocontest competition is heating up

I guess you gotta blog to win this shopautodotca seocontest competition. After sitting comfortably in first in Google for the shopautodotca seocontest for the last two weeks I recently got bumped down by two contestants that blog and blog and blog. I not sure I can find the time for all that mindless typing but I will attempt to keep blogging a small part of my shopautodotca seocontest strategy as it appears to have some merit as a seo tactic. (which kinda sucks cause I hate blogging about basically nothing but this shopautodotca seocontest as it grows old pretty quick. Unfortunately no time for Jokes in this post as I now have to scramble to figure out why I have dropped to #3. Maybe next time I post something for this shopautodotca seocontest I'll be in a more jovial mood.

shopautodotca seocontest drunken musings

Research, research and more research.... thats what gets you ahead in this shopautodotca seocontest. Sometimes its enough to drive you crazy. Apparently someone was desperate enough to spam wikipedia to get an inbound link.. check out yahoo. Also the rumor is daneille is offended by blond jokes and also jeremy doesnt even give a ****. No offense intended of course as they are both currently ahead of me in this shopautodotca seocontest.

On another note, it is interesting to reverse engineer some of the contestants sites to see how they have achieved what they have. My WHITE hat is off the the ladies and gentlemen that are obtaining their shopautodotca seocontest rankings through hard work alone. Now for the jokes ... who can I offend today....

A blonde, a brunette and a redhead were walking along the beach. A seagull flies over and craps all over the blonde.

The brunette says in a disgusted voice, "Hang on the bathroom is just up the hill, I'll go get some toilet paper."

After she leaves the blonde begins to laugh.

The redhead says, "What's so funny?"

The blonde says, "Well, blondes are supposed to be so dumb and look at her. By the time she gets back with that toilet paper that seagull will be miles away!"

I'm in a bar, having a few drinks, when I realize I gotta take a leak.
So I go into one of the restroom stalls, and moments later, the guy in the next stall, says "Hi. How's it going?"
So, I go ....."Uhhh, all right."
A couple of seconds later he says,
"What are ya doing tonight?"
So, naturally I replied, "Just having' a couple of beers, and then I'm going home."
The next thing he says is,
"Listen, I'll call you back later.
There's an idiot in the next stall, answering everything I say."

How does a blonde autoshopdotca employee get to be Branch Manager...
"she climbs up a tree"

Q: Why doesn't autoshopdotca give blondes coffee breaks?
A: It takes too long to retrain them.

Two blondes were walking through the woods when one looked down and said "Oh, look at the deer tracks." The other blonde looks and says "Those aren't deer tracks, those are wolf tracks." "No. Those are deer tracks." They keep arguing, and arguing, and one half hour later they were both killed by a train.

Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says "Does this taste funny to you?"

A little guy walks into a bar and slips on some vomit.
Minutes later a tough guy walks into the bar and slips on the vomit as well.
The little guy says, "I just did that."
The tough guy then beats the little guy up.

shopautodotca seocontest burn out

Sometimes this
search engine optimization Canada contest goes in slow motion

SEO Testimonials

Although it has only been the first week of my of the contest and I am over eager to see the results of this search engine optimization contests. However it has given me time to work on my actual search engine optimization canada site and fortunately this has already resulted in
Some happy customers willing to add to my site by offering SEO Testimonials of the excellent results I achieve. This is filling my days now and I have little time for this SEO Contest, however as I love a challenge, I plan to continue with it in my spare time.

I have also begun to explore shopautodotca seocontest blogging as it seems to be working extremely well for those leading this shopautodotca seocontest. However the results of my efforts seem to be going extremely slow.

Seo contest to blog or not to Blog is that the question or wasted time

My shopautodotca seocontest entry that looked promising early on #15 MSN and #13 Google, has since dropped to # 48 on Google (OUCH) but has held steady #15 on msn. However, nothing has changed in days despite my efforts, perhaps this shopautodotca seocontest website blogging thing might work although I am kinda new at it. As I understand , the blogging thing works by getting links to the website so if you could kindly post links from your blog or website by to my website at www.shopautodotcaseocontest-seo.com

Not only would appreciate it enough to not give up on this seocontest blogging thing, I will actually try to make my entries more interesting than the shopautodotca seocontest editorials posted on my actual website.

If your interested in SEO CONTEST your self you might wanna enter this seo contest world championship about globalwarming awareness2007 which or these seocontest's which are very similar to the carcashers seocontest that was held last year. But I gotta warn ya these guys are Good so you might be better off entering this seocontest
If you are already entered in a seocontest contact me at seocontest@shopautodotcaseocontest-seo.com and we can do arrange some reciprocal linking.

Jokes of the day:

Two bears walk into a bar one sits down and says to the bartender
"I would like a White......... Russian"
the bartender asks " why the pause ?"
The bear says "I was Born with Them !!"

A guy walks into a bar with jumper cables.

An ugly women walks into a bar, sits down by herself at the end of the bar and hears a small voice say, "You look nice today." She looks around but doesnt see anyone, A few minutes later she again hears the small voice, again saying "Your Kinda Hot lady." This time she looks down in time to see the bowl of nuts talking to her "Your eyes are pretty" the woman smiles and asks the bartender, "Whats up with the peanuts."?
The bartender says "dont worry They're complimentary!"

shopautodotca seocontest google msn still not YAHOO !

Shopautodotca seocontest new update

Only five days into (my submission to the ) shopautodotca seocontest and I am pleased that I already have some respectable listings on MSN I moved up from 18th to 15th since showing up just yesterday, I figure this is a respectable showing as others have been working on this for almost two monthes.
I was also very pleased to find my shopautodotca seocontest on google at #13 already, however I will wait and see if it sticks as it has been my experience in the past that often google will list high in the rankings initially and then some times disappear.
Lately I have been so busy with work and creating my own shopautodotca seocontest entry that I have not been able to provide any commentary on the other entries or the secontest itself. Perhaps when I get closer to the top rankings it will be easier to pay attention to what is going on way up there.

shopautodotca seocontest entry being ignored by YAHOO

So whats the deal with my shopautodotca seocontest getting ignored by Yahoo. I do understand that my seocontest entry was only submitted 5 days ago and it is amazing it was picked up this fast by MSN and Google. So I cant guess complain too much, Although I eagerly await where it will show up in the rankings almost as much as you do ("sarcasm") but I will try to keep you posted .
