Barely a 1/3 in and had to stop and check out the API for understanding  reshares and plus 1's.  Amazing stuff. Can't wait to dig into the remaining 2/3! Thanks +Dan Petrovic  BTW give us mortals some time to wrap our heads around this before blowing our minds with the sequel. ;-)

Wow, site hacked!  Anyone ever run into these guys?
During a G-SERP assessment the #2 result for the query  san diego personal injury lawyer yielded the attached pic. Must be recent,  how else could it slip the #2 spot? 

Has me wondering where an SEO's responsibility starts/stops concerning a hacked site. If this was your client would you pass the buck to the webmaster or host or whomever? Would you get involved? As an SEO are you culpable for security breaches?

Couldn't agree more JC, but the point I'm making is that some clients their "host" is the web designer they hired ages ago, or their web developer was a once upon a time free lancer that they haven't herd from since the "development" was completed. In these cases the SEO may be the only actively engaged professional that has the site's best interest in mind. After all, if/when the site crashes, then there's no reason for the client to continue paying for SEO. Right?

Hey TechSEO, working on a domain and looking for your appraisal...
GWT  lists approx. 70% of the "links to site" coming from a sub-domain of bloglines.com.   I've checked a dozen of these links manually and  I'm not sure why they're listed in GWT. Every link I've checked has zero mention of the domain I'm working on.    All of the pages with the mentioned links have doubleclick/google leads services.  I'm wondering...does GWT count/compile links produced from ads on domains that have opted into Google lead service? I'm under the impression that links from paid ads aren't  notated in GWT. I'm I wrong?

+Nick Ker That's exactly what happened. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

Any recommendations for a ranking tool by search query not url?
ex: "buy widgets" gathers the SERP urls rather then the ranking of a specific url for "buy widgets"

Not that I would have any personal knowledge of this because it is against Google's TOS, but AWR (Advanced Web Ranking) does provide a screenshot of the SERP at the time it is collected. Also yes, IPs get banned. All the time. Just ask a proxy provider.

Anyone seeing this?

Is G getting in the holiday spirit showing some social love with a share to twitter and/or fb?
Is this just for Google Doodle?
or a preview of more to come from www.google.com?

Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback. Granted it's a hypothetical as I've never had the misfortune of a client site being hacked, but then I haven't been playing the game very long. Bound to happen sooner or later, hence my interest. 
I'm also curious how G's algo is presently unable to catch the aforementioned result. I can't imagine that's a result G wants to give users.

Based on the quote I posted, yes I think that's one possibility and might explain what you're seeing. 

Thanks for summing up what I was trying to say. I can struggle with getting the main point across :)

After given the best compliment by a client "I trust you" I felt compelled to reference the thesaurus for "trust" synonyms and came up with the following: (can you spot the synonyms for trust?)

"A professional's genuine promise fuels the dependable effort that drives reliable results earning the highest honor: a client's trust."

Anyone got word on G's ky planner? The keyword ideas suggestion tool seems busted. I tested keyword, doctor, and G suggested that same keyword as the only related ky idea AND the only ky in the ad group . huh? 
What happened to all the related keywords?
