GoogleGuy Says …

In SEO Mistakes: crappy doorway pages Matt Cutts states, “[web sites] can actually get their PageRank sucked away…”

Matt, you’re really blowing my mind with insane concepts. PR is never sucked or given or stolen from a web page because of a link. That page will always retain its PR regardless of who or what it links to. The PR of the page is only affected by the number and PR of the pages linking to it, but it does not suck away anything from another page.
The linking page’s PR does not get affected because it links to anything.

After reading all your posts on linking, I’m beginning to think that either I’m really confused (seriously doubtful) or that how you state things are purposely designed to confuse the masses. The ultimate message from all your linking posts is “Stop linking to other web sites.”

Let’s see:
1. Don’t buy links
2. Don’t reciprocate links
3. Don’t link to other web pages because it sucks PR from your web page.

That reminds me of the old days when all we had were documents stored on other mainframes with no links to referenced materials because the Hypertext Markup Language had not been invented yet. It wasn’t until HTML was invented did we receive the opportunity to link to other documents using the hypertext link.

DHL Delivery Services

On Wednesday, December 14, 2005, we ordered $463 dollars worth of laser toner for our color laser printer. On the morning of the 15th we received tracking information from our supplier stating that our product would be delivered that day by DHL.

It didn’t arrive, but out of understanding that the Christmas season may have slowed the delivery down a day, we waited. At closing time we logged into DHL’s Web site and discovered their driver had left it by the door on the 15th. We looked everywhere for it. It was nowhere to be found.

So, we called DHL and informed them of the missed delivery. The local office had closed so we spoke with the national office. They immediately began work on locating the package. This morning they called to inform they had not found anything yet, but that the driver was instructed to return to the location he had left the package.

This morning we drove by the office and found a package sitting by one of the empty offices a few doors down. We decided to check the package to see if it was indeed our package. It was. Within 20 minutes of our finding the package, the DHL national office called again to tell us the driver was on his way out to find the package. We informed them we found the package and to save the driver the trouble.

While the national office provided fantastic support, the driver should have paid greater attention to where he leaves packages. We’re just fortunate that we found the package.
