My name is Patrick Sexton and I wrote these articles because in my experience most of the concerns or problems that any webmasters have with their ranking all seem to come back to the Google guidelines.
I created this website as a resource for webmasters willing to look. Since so many people are asking the same questions I figured I might as well write it all out to give people a place to learn about the basics of the guidelines and also to give me something to point people to as I am speaking about the guidelines in forums. There just didn't seem to be much clear info about the Google webmaster guidelines out there that wasn't from a spammy or promotional slant.
If someone is looking for good info about the guidelines, they often end up an pages designed to sell them something that often distribute myths and bad ideas.
It is important to utilize what Google has provided to webmasters and the place to start is Google webmaster tools.
This website was written by Patrick Sexton, who has been helping webmasters with the Google Webmaster Guidelines and other issues since 2005.
