    For the most part SEO means Search Engine Opinion. Lets get some facts.

    First, take a look at this tiny sample of places to put your content

    Code:
    Beep.com
    Webnode.com
    Viviti.com
    Weebly.com
    HubPages.com
    Terapad.com
    Wordpress
    squidoo.com
    sites.google.com
    knol.google.com
    Blogspot.com
    docstoc.com
    Wetpaint.com
    home.spaces.live.com
    Wikispaces.com
    Vox.com
    scribd.com
    EzineArticles.com
    bravejournal.com
    Typepad.com
    blogher.com
    Zimbio.com
    Hubpages.com
    Quizilla.com
    Webs.com
    Blog.com
    weebly.com
    LiveJournal.com
    Weblog.com
    xanga.com
    Blogsome.com
    Blogger.com
    Pop quiz:
    1) Spot the duds - total waste of time
    2) Spot the two gems that are barely known
    3) Which have the best raw ranking power?
    4) Which are best for link juice?

    So, fellow blackhatters, who wants to quit depending on ebooks, opinions and nonsense and compile real, fact-based information that gives you a solid advantage over the competition?

    Hey Micallef,

    I have answers based on what has worked from me. But that's not enough. I think it makes sense to do some controlled testing on these properties en mass. Lot of dependable members here doing tests and popping their findings into an online database. Property Vs Property Vs Property. Which one get ranked higher time and time again?

    Instead of everyone ferreting around getting small pieces of the puzzle, how about some collaboration? For people who are depending on SEO for a living, doesn't this make sense? I'll set everything up to track 300 properties for raw rank power and juice passing power if there is enough of an uptake. And the best thing is that members can continue making money - just pass on the results of each test.

    To accommodate changes in google i'd recommend using moving averages in the stats of each property. In other words, just cause a certain property got lots of google love x months ago doesn't mean that historical data counts today. And for god's sake....will somebody please think of the children.
