To be continued

I had hoped to write at least one more post before I had to do this, but I’m afraid I just haven’t had time. December is a pretty busy month for me, so I won’t have a chance to write any more for The Web for You until January, 2008.

I have at least one more post in my series on Search Engine Optimization, which would include a response to Frank’s excellent comment in defense of the practices used by search engines.

I certainly believe search engines are a good thing, and, in principle, search engine optimization is a wonderful tool to help Web site owners establish their content as valid and authoritative. However, there are certain aspects of today’s practices in indexing Web sites that make it harder for small businesses and personal Web sites to gain high rankings in the search engines, while allowing “gamed” Web sites to boost their rankings without displaying quality content.

I’ll continue this conversation in early January, and I hope you’ll all be patient with me in the mean time.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all…see you in January.
