Image of Yahoo/Google offices?[edit]

What's the relevance of adding the thumbnail image of the Haifa Google/Yahoo office building to the Relationships.... section? It's not clear what these offices are used for, their specific connection with SEO, etc. I recommend dropping it, unless someone can provide a bit more context. jxm (talk) 03:20, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 June 2014[edit]

In the "History" section, the article says "In 2005, Google began personalizing search results for each user. Depending on their history of previous searches, Google crafted results for logged in users" [emphasis added]. You would naturally expect that a couple of lines later, it would say "In 2009, Google extended its personalized search to signed-out users." But this information is missing from the article. Please add it. Source: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/personalized-search-for-everyone.html

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 20:01, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
This information would be useful to have on the site. Please provide a rule that states this is not a reliable source. As far as I can tell, it is a press release, which is a non-independent source, and "non-independent sources may be used to source content for articles, but the connection of the source to the topic must be clearly identified.

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. Press releases are considered primary, and therefore are not independent reliable sources. Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 23:10, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. It is allowed despite being primary: "Unless restricted by another policy, reliable primary sources may be used in Wikipedia; but only with care, because it is easy to misuse them.[4] Any interpretation of primary source material requires a reliable secondary source for that interpretation. A primary source may only be used on Wikipedia to make straightforward, descriptive statements of facts that can be verified by any educated person with access to the primary source but without further, specialized knowledge." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vile-eight (talkcontribs)
Doesn't the article already say that in the sentence that starts with "In December 2009, Google announced it would"? The source is even that press release. Stickee (talk) 02:49, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting wait.svg Already done, The history section is written chronologically, as you go down from 2005 following 2007, you'll find that there's a sentence starting with "In December 2009[..]", that is exactly what you want to be made. Anupmehra -Let's talk! 07:57, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 8 August 2014[edit]

I want to add an infographic to the SEO wiki page in the external articles. Would this be okay? 81.174.249.178 (talk) 10:31, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

I don't think that would be too likely to happen. What is the infographic? Do you own the copyright to it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stickee (talkcontribs)
An infographic might be a welcome addition, though probably in a different part of the article. But please see Wikipedia:Image use policy for whether the image could be included in Wikipedia. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 08:37, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

link wheel[edit]

What is a link wheel? I see that link wheel currently redirects to search engine optimization. The WP:R#PLA guideline suggests that such a redirected phrase should be mentioned in the first couple of paragraphs of this article, but currently this article doesn't even mention the word "wheel" anywhere in the article. --DavidCary (talk) 02:42, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
