HooRank is a modified polynomial distribution that is calculated every Thursday at 9am local time wherever the website is hosted, and applied to the ranking calculation the following Tuesday at 3pm CET. (http://seocockstars.com/)
Note – the reason I am posting this is I have some seo stuff I am going to publish shortly (including some seo analysis I dont think I see out there) which falls under seo theory so I thought I may as well get this out of the way before somebody pipes in later lol.
There’s many problems with seo theory blogs. Misinformation is an obvious one. Rarely are your results conclusive or observations 100% accurate. Even if you think a theory holds water on some level.
Take for instance a recent post I did about Google remembering all your pages on your site. While the theory may hold water for me, my analysis was slightly flawed, and my findings in retrospect have proven not to be 100% accurate. not 100% innacurate – or I would nuke the post entirely, or strikethrough the text at least.
There’s even a few pages on this site that I don’t think are 100% accurate, so I’ve added listtle disclaimers here and there, and created a main seo page to list some of the seo techniques that are more widely agreed upon.
I enjoy seo theory blogging and sometimes I wish I could blog more about theory, rather then fact, because this blog is after all a brain dump. I love discussion on it and the actual idea generation side of online marketing.
But your not exactly in a lab environment – why I think seo is more art that science – a lot more.
Sometimes it’s scary blogging about SEO, because nobody has all the answers. you can look stupid too.
What’s worse though is seeing a seo theory blog fail to theorise about anything other than diss other people’s ideas – I don’t want a blog like that.
Just remember everything you read about seo anywhere is THEORY and just like how many planets are in the solar system or what clour is water, ‘facts’ can change with a greater understanding over time or with a different perspective.
