    Greetings! It's your favorite, or least favorite SEO scientist again... I usually don't fall in the middle with my "belief shattering" theories... I'm here to rock your world again....

    I recently posted a number of empirically measured charts that I found very inflammatory to modern understanding of white hat SEO practices. Please review that post:

    More Empirical Data From MY SEO Lab

    What I saw in the data:

    Google seems to rank Page 1 with one set of rules and pages 2-10 with a different set of rules.

    I've only recently noticed the different limits and trends. In the past I tuned via top 100 analysis thinking that Google only used one set of rules, but its looking like that was a mistake on my part ever since I built the SEO Lab and have much more detailed data to work with.

    Please look at the charts again and tell me what you think.

    I'd really like to know and I'm sure everyone else would too.

    Thanks

    And I hope you keep rocking our world. the information (although way above my head) you post here is very, very interesting to say the least. I've learned a little, which is better then not learning a thing. Keep up the good work. I love reading your posts.

    Howde,

    In Chart 1 - how do you calculate visible bytes? Does this include image size totals?

    In Chart 2 Top Graph (Graph 1) - im not understanding how, in graph 1, the average bytes can remain constant when the minimum value is changing quite dramatically from left to right. Should the blue line not be higher on the right than it is on the left? Im probably missing something - but this seems to be the case with a few of the graphs so I thought Id ask about that first before I start trying to think too much.

    What I mean (I think) is that wouldnt it be more "normal" to see the average move with the min/max values than to be creating a completely new line? See where im coming from?

    Cheers

    You are analyzing only onpage SEO.
    What about backlinks and quality of it ?
