PageRank Algorithm. Oh the mighty PageRank Algorithm, it’s a near mythical mathematical formulation that nearly every seo specialist and webmaster has tried to figure out, or attempt to manipulate.
PageRank is named after Lawrence Page one of the founders of Google. The original patent was approved with the United States Patent Office on September 4th, 2001, but was actually filed January 9th, 1998.

We wrote on the closing of Yahoo’s ad network sometime last month, and today we wanted to write about Chitika is replacing YPN. Yahoo is actually sending all their old customers over to Chitika. Now whats cool about this is that you can run Chitika and Google Adsense on the same page. That’s been chitika’s “claim to fame”. Chitika an ad agency formerly known for their linx units, as well as thei e-minimalls is company that was founded in 2003, serves over 550 million queries a month.
Chitika and Adsense Yes, YPN and Adsense No
So this is good for people in general. It was against the Adsense TOS to use Yahoo Publisher Network and Adsense together because they looked to similar. Google effectively crushed YPN using this tactic. Chitika on the other hand bloomed as it paid attention to the TOS and build an add company that fits like a glove with Google Adsense.
So chitika is effectively replacing YPN. What does this mean? Well this means that Chitika may be the 2nd largest online ad publishing agency in the near future. Just something to think about.
Google Topeka April Fools. Google has changed it’s name to Topeka on April 1st. The logo (you can see on the left) is redone. The web address is still Google.com and they unfortunately did not purchase the domain Topeka.com and do a redirect (that would have been really funny) In fact topeka.com is nothing but a blank white page, but i bet its getting hammered today with traffic.
All in all that’s pretty funny if you ask me, and it just shows the type of company that Google is.
Topeka Word Usage
According to a google ehe.. i mean Topeka blog post this chart to the left represents the proper usage of “Topeka”.
While the work “Topekad” doesn’t have the same ring as “Googled” it still is what it is.
So next time someone says hey have you google “blue widget”, please correct them and say something like “Don’t you mean topekad? Googled is so 2009”.
