Google Updates

Google has a couple new elements going on in its results pages. The first one is the addition of brand links for some queries.
In the ones I've seen, they appear near the top of the results, just below the top paid listings. They are not links to the sites of these brands, however. They are links to SERPs for queries that incorporate those brands into them. For example, clicking "Wilson" in the footballs example will take me to results page for "wilson footballs".

Google Page Rank Update


There have been whisperings across the web about a new update, which actually comes less than one month after the last one. The May 2009 update took place on May 27th while it is reported that this current update started as early as June 23rd.

Many publishers tend to use PageRank as a metric for judging the quality of their site. Also the PR score can give a good indication of the level of traffic you will receive from Google. The higher your ranking, then most likely the more traffic you will receive.

At this stage the whispers are just hearsay, as there has been no official word from Google on the update.
