Thanks +Cyrus Shepard for your eloquent and well thought out response. Agree with your points here.
5 Takeaways and Assumptions from Matt Cutt's Video on Authority vs. Popularity

1. Google repeated tries to downplay the role of social signals in the algorithm. I actually believe them, and take Matt at his word. Where I believe Google is going with social signals is the idea of establishing identity.

2. Raw social signals are messy. Identity is a much more useful signal for determining authority than raw social signals, which can be gained. Identity on the web is hard to figure out, but Google+ helps a lot. Matt doesn't explicitly say this, but this and past statements support this assumption very well.

3. In the past, Google rewarded highly authoritative websites through traditional signals analogous to Trust Authority and Domain Authority, which were highly dependent on raw PageRank and anchor text signals.

This promoted sites with high Domain Authority scores even for long tail terms that they weren't necessarily an authority on. Think of the New York Times ranking for a page on Justin Bieber, just because they have the authority of the New York Times.

4. Going forward, Google plans to incorporate better authority and relevancy signals (possibly based on identity, semantic analysis and other factors I can't begin to imagine).

The result of which is the influence of traditional Domain Authority signals will diminish.

5. How do we adapt and take advantage of Google's new relevancy signals? (yet to be proven or released)

 • Become an authority.
 • Establish real people as authors.
 • Publish regularly creating best-of-class authoritative content on particular subjects.
 • Continue to use good site architecture and best semantic practices to make the meaning of your content clear to Google.
 • Actively promote your content through influencers and influential channels (this isn't link building, it's targeted distribution)

Learn a Language Online - and for FREE!

I'm heading to Japan soon and want to learn a few basic phrases (greetings etc.) before I leave the UK. I'll put my hands up and say I'm a lazy English (albeit British English :-)) only speaker with a tiny amount of French.  I've also struggled to grasp basic Spanish and Italian from friends I've met along the way...

Anyway, my friend has put me onto a language network called italki. You can organise all sorts of lessons but the great thing is you can also buddy up with people who are willing to help and/or want to learn more of your native language.

I've got my first buddy session this week..I'll keep you posted on how it went!

<Title> Change Roll Out

<Title> tags in Google have been changing the past few weeks and it's out with the old 66 characters and in with the new 55 as the safest length.

I've been reducing my clients the past few weeks.

+Pete Meyers has come up with an excellent guide

If you're rather particular (like me) Screaming Frog have produced a pixel width tool.

Every character counts right :-)
