The blog approach is interesting, though. The main Google blog has been compared to a number of religious texts when techies are asked about its usefulness. Knowing what the search giant is working on next gives you an edge in national and local internet marketing. That knowledge is published – no secret to anyone, but you’d be amazed at how many marketing “gurus” guess at search engine changes instead of getting all the facts. Google schema is a good example of that. If you read everything there is to read about it you’ll know that it’s only slightly beyond the concept stage right now.
Here at Executive Decision Marketing, we use custom blog creation as a marketing tool to move our clients up the page rank ladder. The algorithms that determine page rank weight quality content as the most important variable in the equation. This was not always the case, but since Google Panda the only way to secure a spot on Page One has been through content development. Perhaps that’s why Google created a separate site to talk about schema. If that’s the case, the new coding system isn’t getting much attention. The Alexa rank for the site is still over 10,000. What do you think that means?
