Twitter implements nofollow tags since without them it would be a spammers paradise - that's why you're seeing the nofollow on Open Site Explorer because your link has that tag on it.

RE: SEOmoz Toolbar - Am I the only one who figured this out?
I have up to 40 tabs open in firefox and a machine with only 2GB of RAM and the seomoz toolbar installed and there is no slowing down due to the seomoz toolbar it must be being caused by something else!

Hi I'd also like a copy - who do I need to PM?
RE: Duplicat content affecting SEO Rankings
There are a few ways to do this, and it would depend on your goals. Obviously you don't want two different domains with the exact same content so here are some options to consider :
Apply correct use of cannonical tags so that search engines know which is the original source, and then put your link building efforts into the original
Create and add unique content around the Bulgaria sites property content and apply Bulgaria specific on-page optimisation to them. The only problem with this approach is that if these properties also feature on the main(buypropertyanywhere) site that you'd be competing against yourself.
Redirect the bulgaria site to your main site and make sure that your site architecture is good and has bulgaria as it's own 'section'. Put all your seo efforts into just your main site.
You've not given exact URL's which is fine - but if you were looking to rank the Bulgaria site on Bulgarian search engines and specifically for local searches there then the redirect option might be excluded from the above.
Hope that made some sense
RE: Plummeting traffic and rankings for main KWs
Had a quick look at the sites, and did a reverse ip lookup too since I was curious if both were hosted on the same server(which they are not). I then noticed that you need to redirect the following :
You also have a .com version which is identical(as far as I could see from the quick look I had) to your .co.uk site - are you only accepting business from the UK and are you only interested in ranking on Google UK? If the answer is yes then I'd advise you to redirect the .com site to the .co.uk and/or implement canonical tags so that Google knows which site is the primary one. These kinds of duplicate content issues can and do affect rankings.
Another bit of advice is while I'm not going to get into the whole debate over paid links, I will say that if you use your company/domain name as the anchor text for paid listings in quality directories then you'll be far less likely to be penalised.
If you need some help with the redirect code and implementation just let us know
edit : and take out those keyword meta tags!
RE: Why do some serps have a + map symbol?
Had a quick look in the SERP's and my guess is that they 'seem' to be the only page one result that has the map embedded on their site. http://www.guestwalker.co.uk/find-us/google-map/
It's just a guess from me - but I'd give that a try and hopefully google will add that map link for your clients site.
edit : Have a look at the clients google places page and also look into rich snippets if you've not done so already. I ran the URL that you mentioned through http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?view=&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.guestwalker.co.uk but they are not using rich snippets btw
RE: Suggestions on plans to optimize my site? (NOOB)
This explains site architecture and the 'what is a silo' all perfectly -> http://www.seomoz.org/blog/site-architecture-for-seo
edit : as for the data at the bottom of the page I believe they did that due to their top level menu being ajax - even though google can crawl and understand ajax it might have been from years ago when it was a bit hit and miss and they wanted to be sure.
RE: Google Panelizes to much SEO
I'm not saying that a keyword matched domain should receive a penalty, I'm saying that it should be a more neutral ground when it comes to ranking factors.
If your site happens to have a keyword matched domain but has great content and value for a visitor then it should rightly rank higher for relevant queries - and if they changed the weighting on the matched domains then it should(in theory) weed out the thinner value sites.
Matt Cutts did mention in that interview the phrase 'level playing field' - not that I personally believe this could ever be achieved with an algorithm

RE: Image Optimization - File Name Important?
Another thing to consider is that if you do have an image ranking within the SERPS that you don't change the filename at all - I've seen that it takes google's bot(s) much longer to reindex an image that's filename has changed vs like some content change or meta title etc
RE: Posting "similar" blog posts to multiple blog sites seems "shady", does it work?
'Given that, if the 4 blogging tools above all require the use of a subdomain, then how am I actually taking advantage of the seo value of blogger,posterous, tumblr?'
Google is clever enough to know that although the domains you listed are pretty strong, they will judge each blog on it's own without taking into consideration the domain level strength(esp since it's a free platform).
My advice is to have one blog, on your own site and put the best possible content on it. Putting thin and slightly tweaked content all over the show is not going to bring you the kind of results you're after.
Those blogging platforms do have their uses, but keep in mind the above and that you should not invest too much time in them if you have a core website/business that you're trying to rank/sell etc
RE: How to Set Custom Crawl Rate in Google Webmaster Tools?
It's better to just leave it on default - custom crawl rates are only needed if you're experiencing traffic problems from the server(as stated in your screenshot).
Yyou will also use more bandwidth on your own server by the google bot coming more often so this should also be something you think about. Also worth mentioning is that after 90 days it will go back to default settings.
RE: Google Analytics - Intelligence Custom Alerts
As far as I'm aware it will only apply to future stats and not backdate/query past stats. I'm not sure if this is something that Google is going to implement in the future - but I do think it would be a nice feature if they did
RE: Change Homepage internal Link from Image to Targeted Anchor Text -- Spam??
Adding text (eg. ourkeyword) below/above the image/logo will not be seen as spam.
You don't mention if your image/logo is making use of the alt tag or not?
Keep in mind that sometimes the DA can be misleading when a site or link is on a subdomain(blogger being a good example) since Google will class the blog/site on it's own and you would then look at the PA.
Also worth noting is that the links relevancy and position within the relevant content and anchor text is ideal.
Personally I would check the competitors backlink profile, sort by domain authority(keeping an eye on subdomains that inflate this figure) and then start checking for relevancy.
Hope this helps
RE: Why do people rarely give each other Thumbs Up?
I give a thumbs up when someone answers a question in a very accurate and understandable way. Also I tend to thumb up something that really makes me stand back and think - or just makes me laugh
RE: Home page rankings disappeared - Google Penalty?
I had a quick look at the site and a few subpages and what I'd suggest is changing the onpage optimization on the home page since this page -> http://www.marrikashairextensions.com/brazilian-hair-extensions you can focus for the keyword 'brazilian hair extensions' . I'd also add some good content about the product on that page since at the moment it's pretty blank.
The results that come up when I search on google.com for that keyword are pages that are stronger in terms of domain strength, backlinks and on page optimization so I'd say it's not a penalty but rather a ranking adjustment. If it were a penalty I don't think it would only affect your home page and leave other sub pages rankings intact.
If you've not done anything black hat(such as buying links) then it's certainly just the algorith changes and you need to work on the site.
Hope that's of some help
RE: How To Solve Too Many On-Page Links In Blogger?
What you need to do is paginate, see this guide -> http://www.bloggerbuster.com/2008/08/numbered-page-navigation-for-blogger.html
It will require some html knowledge but will be worth the final result.
Hope this helps
