Do you think there is any benefit with having my URL written like http: // etc but there being no link?

I know a link would have been huge but in any event, do you think SEngines respect the non-linked URL to give a bit of respect?

Yes, it's a citation.

That's great - I guess every little bit helps. I was reading one of your posts the other day and noticed something that stuck with me - that a primary SEO driver is trust! - That seems to be very obvious but it needs to be said....

 

With some much crap out there trust is clearly the main driver (IMO) - after all, why would Google send traffic to your site if they thought it was untrustworthy nonsense

Well they used to, but with each update I believe that trust becomes more and more important. 

 

For anyone else reading, here's the Google trust article that Lister is talking about.

Hey Lister,

 

this would be easy enough to determine. If you have received a mention from a major news outlet, just check your rankings the day or two after the mention is spidered by google - if there is a bump up in your rankings, then mentions do help, especially from high authority sites.

 

LMK if that does not make sense :-)

More likely there will be a bump in direct traffic and traffic from branded searches -- lots of people saw a mention of the business, so some of them are going to want to check it out.

you mean you doubt he will check, or has th eability to do so, or you deny my hypothesis?

I deny your hypothesis.

 

For one thing, you can't check rankings. But besides that, I be shocked if the result was measurable.

If it were the home page of the WSJ, I think you might see something measurable pretty quickly. But a mention on a deep page is really just a nice little increase in the authority of the site, which won't make a measurable difference (unless it leads to citations and links from more sites with similar reputations).
