Whilst browsing the web using Google last night, I realised that being a member of a web marketing company was affecting the way I use Google.
Searching the listings for SEO and the latest web marketing news I noticed that instinctively I was typing in the URLS into my address bar rather than clicking on the links. Thinking back to my earlier searches that day – It appears I have a new habit, but why? I suppose in the back of my mind, I know that for every click to a site (which may be somehow linked to my competition) will be gaining in its Google Power.
So when researching your competition using search engines, it is a good tip not to click on the link, but to actually type the URL manually, as every little helps.
