Cracking GOOG's 'secret sauce' algorithm

"Rand Fishkin knows how valuable it is for a Web site to rank high in a Google search. But even this president of a search engine optimization firm was blown away by a proposal he received at a search engine optimization conference in London last month, where he was a panelist.
The topic -- Can a poker Web site rank high on a Google search using purely white hat tactics -- meaning no spamming, cloaking, link farms or other frowned-upon 'black hat' practices. Fishkin answered yes, provided the site also added other marketing techniques and attracted some media attention.
The rest of the panel scoffed. 'Don't bring a knife to a gunfight,' one chided. After all, this is the cutthroat online gambling sector."

Google algorithm changes almost each month but I guess no matter how much somebody is willing to pay to find it out they just can't cause it will change again. Helene Goldnadel
