Here are five of this week’s most interesting and informative articles and news items. Being Thanksgiving week in the USA, it’s a short week for most of our usual reads, but still a lot to catch up on!
1. Why You Might Want to Do SEO on Someone Else’s Site – Whiteboard Friday — SEOmoz almost always has a must-read/must-see post each and every day, but Friday’s are especially great with their Whiteboard Fridays. If you haven’t already caught on to this series, do so starting this week. Not only is it on video, they include a transcript for those of us who prefer print (including all of us subscribers to Search Marketing Standard magazine).
2. 25 Ways To Learn SEO For Free — if you’re just starting out, State of Search has some practical ways you can begin to dig around and start learning what works, and not all of them involve more reading!
3. Announcing Bing Webmaster Guidelines & Webinars — Bing finally announced some concrete Webmaster Guidelines, as well as some upcoming webinars on general areas around said webmaster guidelines from now until February (the sessions will be taped and accessible for later viewing).
4. Answering the “What”: The Secret to Natural Site Conversions for Usability and SEO – Part III — Kim Krause Berg has the third part in her series on usability, SEO, and conversions, concentrating on dissecting the “what.”
5. Enterprise SEO for the Small-to-Medium Business — Stoney DeGeyter writes about the subject of how SMBs can take on SEO for their business without raiding their children’s piggybanks. FYI, our contributor Steve Faber has written an article on a related topic (“Is SEO Worth The Money For Small Businesses?) in our Winter issue, available the first week of December.
