Google Ranking Factor #201
Around here at the SEO Training Dojo we have what we like to call a 'fight club' mentality. Essentially, what's said behind closed doors, stays there. All to often SEOs like to write about their latest tactics. For which, I am sure Google is appreciative.
But on this occasion, we just can't keep our silence. Good friend of mine (and the Dojo) Bill Slawski shared some incredible ranking factor advice that just had to be shared. And as you all know, when Bill talks, people listen.
Domain registration timing ranking factor
Did you know that the time of year that you register a domain is indeed a ranking factor? Check this thread on Google Plus out.
Ok calm down... we were just messing with ya. But it was one of the funniest threads I've seen in a while. On a more serious note, when a post such as the one we were talking about in that thread gets as much attention (tweets, likes, plusses and over on Inbound) as this one did... it's a sad fckn statement of our industry.
Anyway, Bill and I also did a Google Hangout with the Stone Temple boys this week. There's FAR more interesting tibits in there... I suggest you watch that instead.
