Jewelry Shops on Google Mobile

by
This has been a big year for changes with Google as they try to figure out how to change from a purely mathematical search engine into something more socially controlled.

They are reaching out into the real world trying to gather data on how we all use the internet when we're away from our computers, i.e. mobile.

On June 20, 2011 they changed the way Google Mobile search works. If you allow google.com to detect your location automatically they will show you a list of popular nearby places. They've made a specific change to how m.google.com looks so you have fewer taps on your screen to find popular places.

First, you need to know that there is no magic silver bullet that will make your website show up in the search engines easily. It takes a lot of hard, tedious work.

Second, if you spend just one evening researching SEO techniques on your own, you will find huge inconsistencies between what all of the search engine optimization professionals say to do. There is no way that everyone is correct, yet every one of those professionals seem to get the job done using their "proven" techniques. Google and Bing do not freely publish a real how-to d...
