On September 4th, google’s doodle is a buckyball.  You may be wondering exactly what a buckyball is, I certainly did – its apparantly a molecule that consists purely of carbon atoms. Why is this interesting from an SEO perspective?  Well, its the second time google have employed some pretty nifty html5 on their homepage.  The […]
