Google's search results are being shaken up by a ranking change. And no, it's not Panda.
The Google update from yesterday was a core ranking change, something Google does throughout the year. This was not Panda-, Penguin- or HTTPS-related.

Wyliodrin had a positive response from beginners to their book about using Raspberry Pi with Arduino for electronics projects; they've made it available for free under a Creative Commons licence.

Touched by this #FathersDay tribute from my son Sam – he is a wonderful new father: http://virg.in/eBuSP
Father’s Day is a great time to reflect on all the wonderful memories I’ve shared with my paps. But more importantly, now I am a father myself, it’s a time to take note of the lessons he has instilled in me from a young age. These are lessons that have helped shape, grow and inspire me as a pe...

This is the SVG optimisation before and after using SVGO on the Breaking Borders logo, from last night's meet-up.
A little hard to see it you can hopefully get the gist.

We are always thrilled to receive such kind feedback, thank you so much to Darryl for also allowing us to share such a precious photo; 

"At first I was nervous about entrusting to anyone else what were to me, irreplaceable links to my father's military past. I contacted Save Your Past and was impressed with Emma's friendly and thoughtful manner. She arranged to collect the photographs in person and explained the process and pricing clearly and concisely. The photographs were ready for return within a week and again, Emma arranged to deliver them at an agreed date and time. 

The results are fantastic!

I had requested the images on a CD, which had been personalised with my name and one of my favourite photographs. The cost of the restoration was also very good value. I'll certainly be using Save Your Past again."
