Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of March 14th, 2010

Posted on March 15, 2010 by Vanessa
  • As of March 11, 2010 Rhea Drysdale won the case against Jason Gambert who filed an application to try and trademark the term “SEO”.  Congratulations and way to stick with it Rhea.

  • Matt Cutts was interviewed by Eric Enge.  In the interview Matt discusses the loss of PageRank through 301’s:

    Eric Enge: Let’s say you move from one domain to another and you write yourself a nice little statement that basically instructs the search engine and, any user agent on how to remap from one domain to the other. In a scenario like this, is there some loss in PageRank that can take place simply because the user who originally implemented a link to the site didn't link to it on the new domain?
    Matt Cutts:
    That's a good question, and I am not 100 percent sure about the answer. I can certainly see how there could be some loss of PageRank. I am not 100 percent sure whether the crawling and indexing team has implemented that sort of natural PageRank decay, so I will have to go and check on that specific case. (Note: in a follow on email, Matt confirmed that this is in fact the case. There is some loss of PR through a 301).”

  • Ars Technica reported on a collective of studies, all providing insights into the behaviors of social medial users.  They broke the report up into five key insights all of which are quite interesting:

    1. The majority of Twitter users are still just voyeurs.
    2. Mobile social networking is for the ladies.
    3. More more more!
    4. Facebook users are fans of traditional media.
    5. Social media isn't replacing real life just yet.

  • Consumers are still researching online and purchasing locally.


Kohler is arguably one of the most innovative brands in the home improvement industry. The new Karbon faucet has completely transformed the kitchen and more specifically revolutionized the kitchen faucet. Meanwhile Kohler seems to effortlessly create bathroom fixtures that are not only sleek but save water, like the Escale toilet.
