How Mahalo picks links to add--and ban--from the search index. (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Jun 20th 2007 9:03PM Jason - some questions/notes:

On the iphone page, you note that "mobilesinsight.com" was not accepted because of the ads. I have never seen this site before but when I put it next to your engadget site, the number of ads is the same except for possibly one additional adsense unit. Why wasn't engadget banned?

Also, while I am not an SEO as defined by the others on your 'cast yesterday, I think putting spammers and seo's in the same sentence is unfair. I think there are spammers that are seo's but there is also a real percentage of seo's that are out to do the right thing when helping their clients.

Gewinnen anything to me means spam a good percentage of the time, and it's good that you blocked this user.

I think you need to be careful with the big red ban button. Just because one link might be spam, banning the entire domain might not give you the desired result.

Of course keeping Ryan happy is important, eh? :) Do you realize on the iPhone (not IPhone as you have listed) there are 5 references to Engadget links on that page? And I still haven't seen anyone check out my cost link. There goes that bias argument again...

188 (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Jun 19th 2007 1:25PM Jason,

Let me tell you that when I saw that article in the Times, I almost ripped a goat. (whatever that means). And for the first time, it is not against you.

If 188 is fat, we live in a world that wants to be all nicole richies. Come talk to me, I will show him what fat is.

I am sure the Times tried to feed off you for some "cred" for whatever you have, but c'mon, 188 and that's fat? Next you will hit 190 and call yourself obese.

While I think it's fine to share your stories about your weight and trying to get where you want to be, calling yourself the fatblogging king when you had very little to lose is unfair to those of us in a real struggle.

Time for Lee Gomes and WSJ to write a correction? (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Mar 24th 2007 10:07PM one correction - hitwise does not use a toolbar like alexa.

Lee Gomes makes huge mistake in today's WSJ--I think a correction is in order. (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Mar 21st 2007 4:42PM This has to be at least the 100th time I have heard the "it's because of aol mail" defense. Good, you have said it now. In text, in podcasts (i heard you say it yesterday while walking). We get it Jason.

I am also glad your team saved NS!

Personally I would rather see you focus more on teachings from the VC perspective.
