Vanessa's Variety for the Week of February 20th, 2009

Posted on February 23, 2009 by Vanessa

Better late than never...

  • Facebook gave the cold shoulder to a family in mourning when they refused to take a profile down based on their policies.  The Consumerist lists the details of the story per correspondence between the deceased sister and she brings up an interesting point about the rights of the deceased in relation to social networking and internet profiles.
  • It takes time to build website authority and rank well for competitive keywords, which is just one of the reasons Aaron Wall wrote “Why it Makes Sense to Target Longtail Keywords First”.
  • Entrepreneurs that are looking to source their own product line will be interested in a new product, China Trade Database.  The product is a compilation of more than 500,000 Chinese manufacturers that span a huge variety of product categories from furniture to handbags.  These manufacturers are trusted sources which decreases the risk of being scammed for those that don't do business in China on a regular basis.
  • Matt Cutts is sharing past conference presentations for those that were not able to attend.  He recently posted State of the Index.
  • AdSense now allows custom font selection.
