And Now adding Bills list of "stuff".

Some SEO Books, Papers, and Patents




Earlier Works



As We May Think
Nice early work on computing and citations. Included here more for historical perspective than anything, but worth reading.

From Resource Discovery to Knowledge Discovery on the Internet
This one starts with a discussion of "As We May Think" and builds upon it, looking at such things as inverted indexes and term weights. The two documents taken together are a nice jumping off point to the next document which discusses earlier search engines and optimization.

What is a tall poppy among web pages?
One of the better looks at SEO and Search Engines in the days before Google and pagerank. Views on SEO have changed since 1998, when this was published, but it gives a good sense of what the practice was like back then.


Pagerank



The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine
Spend some time going over this one, and the next one. There's more interesting stuff in these papers than just the information about pagerank.

The PageRank Citation Ranking: Bringing Order to the Web

Then, I would recommend paying the $20 and getting this document from Yahoo!'s Pavel Berkhin:

A Survey on PageRank Computing

The list of cited sources at the end of the document could keep you busy for months, but the document itself is an excellent overview of different approaches to pagerank, and different ways of using it, amending it, altering it, and so on.

Books



There's some nice history and thoughtful analysis in John Battelle's The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture

If you want a good sense of how search engines work, this text by Soumen Chakrabarti is a fine introduction to the topic: Mining the Web: Analysis of Hypertext and Semi Structured Data (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems)

Crawling the Web



There are more than a few papers about how search engines gather information, to bring into their index, and they are useful in understanding some of the reasons why some pages of a site might get indexed, and others don't. These two papers are ones that created some standard language that people use when describing how crawlers work, and have been expanded upon since. If you want to find out more about crawling, you might find some good papers by searching Cite Seer or Google Scholar for papers that cite the first paper I list below:

Efficient Crawling Through URL Ordering

Crawling the Web: Discovery and Maintenance of Large Scale Web Data (pdf)
One of the authors of the first paper in this section, Junghoo Cho, who is now a Google search engine scientist, continued his research on crawlers, and wrote this paper as his doctoral thesis, while being overseen by Hector Garcia-Molina. It expands upon the first paper, and spends some pages looking at freshness on the web. Together, these two are good starting points to later research.

Spam, Spam, and More Spam



Doesn't hurt to know some of the academic papers about spam:

Web Spam Taxonomy

Web Spam, Propaganda and Trust

There are a number more, and they are worth reading through.

Some patents and patent applications assigned to Google



I've focused upon the patents and patent applications that involve search rather than advertising, mapping, cell phone cases, email, and hardware. Hopefully, these will give you a good start. Newer documents first, in each section.

I thought it was worth highlighting one link from projectphp's list. I hadn't noticed this excellent page from Google on advice to potential purchasers of SEO services.
http://www.google.co...asters/seo.html
It makes very good reading.
