Links with less value – content text links

An interesting post by Quadszilla on his blog about Google valueing certain kinds of links less. Google is smarter than most people think.

What does this mean in practice?

I love these guys

Imagine 10,000 humans manually checking the search engines for spam. Not much would be missed…

I can imagine better ways to waste the time of 10.000 people. The search engines aren’t saturated yet. People complain they can’t find what they are searching for. I say they haven’t fucking figured out how to use a search engine.

Amazon Store Manager and Browse Nodes

Another good AWS script and it’s free.

It doesn’t have many features but the installation is easy and fast. When you are editing the config file I suggest you go here: http://www.browsenodes.com/
You will find the BrowseNode and SearchIndex you want easily, paste it in config and you are done.

I made 3 sites with this about a week ago and I can say I’m amazed. I have 200k+ hits from google and much less from yahoo and msn. That ate up around 10 gigs so far and they are all indexed already. Because I’m gonna get questions on what I did for getting the spiders, here it is:

Free blog and ping script

Here’s a great little surprise. I have this script for automating blog and ping that I can resell, so instead I’m releasing it for free.

It’s also server side in php so you don’t have any stupid desktop app that hogs your computers resources (*cough*BlogAutoMachine*cough*). So download the following zip, install and start blogging and pinging. Go saturate blogspot with more splogs or make many WordPress splogs on your server.

Blog and Ping free

Clickbank Datafeeds

Great free tool you can use to create datafeeds with clickbank products. You pick a category or keyword and it adds all products it finds for that keyword, ready with your Clickbank ID.

It also puts a ‘#BREAK#’ tag in the end of each product (if you don’t want the #BREAK# tag just do a search&replace in notepad). That means you can easily use it with Rss2Blog easily. In fact I just made five datafeeds today and started posting them with rss2blog on five blogs. Here is an example of the output for the keyword ‘rss’ :
