Tip of the Month
Make your site more visible!
Do you know how users find your pages? Webmaster Tools provides you with detailed information on the top queries for which your site ranks in Google search results. Use this information to make sure that the content users find most interesting is most prominent.
Sign in to Webmaster Tools
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, by implementing the +1 button on your pages, you can give users an opportunity to share their opinion with you and guide you to what is most interesting for them on your site. Webmaster Tools now also allows you to track the search impact of +1′s on your pages.
A faster site increases user satisfaction, so speed is an important factor in the Google search ranking. Page Speed Online analyzes the content of a web page and generates suggestions to make that page faster.

Link units got a makeover!
Link units are a great way to earn additional revenue from smaller spaces on your site, and we’ve recently revamped them.
For improved performance, we’ve reduced the number of topics in all link units to four for horizontal orientations and three for vertical orientations. Also, link unit landing pages now have a fresh look: color scheme, orientation, fonts, and number of ads have been updated.
