1 WELCOME MESSAGE
Welcome to issue 1 of Pandecta's Electronic Light newsletter. I'm André
le Roux, Pandecta editor. I'll be writing most of what you'll find in
Electronic Light. From time to time I'll publish guest articles, extracts of
what we publish in Pandecta Magazine and reader comments.
2 ABOUT ELECTRONIC LIGHT
My goal with this newsletter is to get to the point. I want to make it short
and informative. Once a week I want to give you something you can really
use in your Internet business.
3 QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Q -- What's the difference between Electronic Light and Pandecta
A -- Pandecta Magazine is a (more or less) 30-page pdf publication that
goes out monthly to subscribers only. Subscription to Pandecta
Magazine is not free, but the information is more than worth the $ 4.95
per month. It looks at the nitty-gritty of making a living on the Net, just
like Electronic Light, but in more detail.
Q -- How often is Electronic Light sent out?
A -- Every Wednesday.
Q -- Is there an HTML version of Electronic Light?
A -- Not at the moment. We'll see.

5 THIS WEEK'S LIGHT
The Google Algorithm
Yes, really. Not the official one of course, but one expert's thoughts
on what the Google algorithm might look like. For those of you who know
why this is valuable, here's the link:
For the rest of you, here's the explanation:
Search engines rank web pages according to relevance to a particular
search term or search phrase. A search engine's algorithm is its own,
top secret recipe for judging relevance. With enough submissions over
a period of time, it is possible to start identifying patterns and speculate
about the engine's algorithm. If you know why one sites is # 1 and
another is # 10, then you can build a typical # 1 site for your keyword.
Candy from a baby.
Not quite that simple, but the more you know about a particular search
engine's algorithm, the better your chances of scoring in the top 10.
