    Bricks and Clicks: The Changing Face of Retail

    Paying OnlineYou’ve no doubt looked up and down your high street recently, only to discover closing down sales, boarded up shops and empty premises. This has been a continued trend of late, with a large number of well known brands either falling into administration or having to shut their doors.

    From Our Price to Rumbelows and now Barratts to La Senza, history has not been kind on the high street. The modern retail landscape demands an online presence, at the very least.

    The murmurings surrounding the sale of Yahoo are growing. It seems each week we’re talking about another Internet company as a potential buyer of the former search giant, but just who, if anyone, is going to buy the struggling Internet Corporation?

    Despite Jerry Yang saying the company was not up for sale at the start of the month, it has been mooted that they are now looking at potential buyers. Some bidders sit as outstanding candidates, others are more speculative, so here is a guide to the names and players who are being touted as potential suitors.

    The Potential Implications of Google Mega Sitelinks

    Whenever Google introduce an update to their SERPs or adjust their algorithm, there is always a knock-on effect for SEOs and Webmasters. Whether you have to re-evaluate on-page content, as with the Panda update, or look at your local presence again as many had to do when Places exploded all over results pages.

    Yesterday Google unleashed mega sitelinks. It may sound like the latest addition to the Transformers franchise, but in fact this new barrage of links for results pages is significantly less one dimensional, offering opportunities and concerns aplenty.

    As if local SERPs weren’t enough, what with Places integration and ever-expanding descriptions, Google is now rolling out City Pages. This new innovation is designed to provide a locals-eye-view of any destination. With inhabitants providing reviews on businesses within the city limits.

    This is being rolled out in a few U.S. cities currently (Portland, Austin, Madison and San Diego to be exact), with information built up over a number of months and using a variety of quirky techniques. Essentially the idea is to develop a broad overview of what is actually happening locally, rather than simply relying on algorithms.

    Google SPDY HTML Goes Commercial

    Site speed became the talk of the search industry for a few months in 2009. This came after Google officially announced that they would be taking page load time into account when ranking sites, which led many to make long-overdue changes.

    One of the key initiatives to come out of this was SPDY – essentially a Google-generated, turbo-boosted HTML code. Now it appears that SPDY has gone from a hypothetical concept to a practical, and saleable service; with Strangeloop being the first to actually offer it to site owners.
