Ok, this has been bugging me for weeks now. What is it with this sudden trend amongst SEO's to post prolifically in forums about IR (information retrieval) - im not talking about discussing how to get better PR, or whether that actually matters. Im not talking about discussing whether a certain technique works or not, and im not talking about general speculation on what may or may not be playing out in Search algorithms.
What i am talking about is
- Calculating PR to 13,344 decimal places
- Posting purely to link to huge amounts of theoretical papers on algorithms
- would Dr Numpty's WTF algorithm combined with Prof. Strumpets OMGYW thesis of time traveling turdburgers improve a pages temporal distortion in the causality of the Search time continuinuinuiniunum thus allow us to make bigger tits of ourselves?
er.. got a bit carried away on that last one heh..
You must know what i mean though right? This just seems to me to be preaching to the choir, yeah yeah, it's all very interesting "Mr im so gutted im not a phd" but how exactly is this helping you rank your sites?
I just know someone will say, "to understand future algos you need to look at what may come" - yeah yeah, clearly, however this self trumpeting phenomenomom goes way further than that and if, as i suspect, it's goal is to make everyone else on the forum think your real clever, it's not working with me.
It makes me think your a prat.
