    Hi Gordon,

    A very good reality check and article that is sure to stir up debate among SEOs.

    Reality: “In fact, Google engineers probably couldn’t tell you exactly why one site is ranking where it is…”

    Debate: “PageRank is not a direct factor in Google’s calculation of a documents’ relevance score”

    I’m “for” this position.

    The article is very narrow in its discussion. That’s understandable.

    Just in case non-SEOs think this is all there is to attracting relevant SE referrals, equally long and important articles could have been written on each these aspects of SEO:

    SEO Strategies
    Online competition analysis
    Selection of key search words (as opposed to “keywords”).
    Visible web page content
    Content development
    Website structure
    Website design

    Want to build on this list?

    Regs,

    John W
