Venerable SEO Blog Sinking Beneath The Waves
SearchEngineLowDown.com, an SEO news and advice site which launched in August of 2003, saw its last update in September of 2007. At its inception, the content at SearchEngineLowDown.com rarely contained any long-form content; instead, it simply linked in parasitical fashion to other URLs with a few lines of text. As the site developed an audience, the content became better, more analytical, and more opinionated.
Like many SEO Blogs, SearchEngineLowDown.com's content often was often overly self-referential and sometimes verged on Google ass-kissing (e.g. "I saw Matt Cutts' latest Blog entry and he referred to my site -- I'm walking on air!"), but this is behavior is characteristic of the SEO world, which is tiny (although its exponents' collective swagger is intended to suggest it's huge). Those seeking page optimization advice may miss SearchEngineLowDown.com, but can avail themselves of many similar properties that do much the same thing.
Two Ghosties (Site is Dying in ICU) Two Ghosties mean that the prognosis for the site isn't so good. Experts have examined it and shaken at its prospects. Revival is possible, but unlikely. I don't issue many "Dying in ICU" awards, because few sites spend much time there on their way out.
