Never Ending Story… No… Never Ending WEB Page…

Iain Tait of Poke & CrackUnit has developed this site for Orange the never-ending web page…

Google goes “Algo” again…

After last weeks change to the Google Algorithm which downgraded the page rank of a broad range of sites, the big news is that they have gone and done it again with an other page rank update, that’s three in a month.

Last weeks changes were related to link farming, but it looks like the latest changes might be related to paid links.
