How The MS/Bing/Yahoo Deal Changes SEO:
I mean, once they get it all done, there will be:
- One less spider crawling the web, reducing power and bandwidth needs of the web, and helping to combat global climate change. Not sure how much carbon the Yahoo bots were putting into the air, but it’s probably more than all the gas-guzzling Hummers in service today.
- One less place for the rank checkers to check their rankings. Not that this will stop anyone – you will still check your rankings at Yahoo and MSN and Live and Bing, just like you still check them at AOL and Google. Stop checking so much – it’s good for the environment.
- Plenty of laid-off or otherwise severed search engineers and the like, so that every big SEO firm can hire one, and pretend that they now have some special insight into Google. If they work from home, that’s one less Hummer cranking out carbon on the Bayshore Freeway. Not that it matters once it gets repossessed.
So, although your SEO action item list is zero, at least Microsoft and Yahoo are doing their part to combat global climate change.
Now, you can do your part. No more “how this deal changes SEO” posts are needed. Save the electrons – who knows when we will need them.
We’ll talk more soon.
