Panda update rolling out

Earlier this week, we started a slow rollout of an improved Panda algorithm, and we expect to have everything done sometime next week. 

Based on user (and webmaster!) feedback, we’ve been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely. This results in a greater diversity of high-quality small- and medium-sized sites ranking higher, which is nice.

Depending on the locale, around 3-5% of queries are affected.

More proof that we are living in the future... burger flipping robots.

May sound silly, but consider that there are over 160,000 fast food restaurants in the United States. Each of them spend over $100,000 per year on kitchen labor. Add into that the potential that the burgers made by this robot are going to be better quality and served faster than those made in a standard kitchen... as well as cheaper. Fast food restaurants will have to automate to compete once these start being deployed.

To this company's credit, they are also looking to fund training programs for people displaced their robots, to learn how maintain and repair their products.

Zillows Home Value Estimates ("Zestimates") - Accurate or Not?
Third-party real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia are household names in the industry.  While there are tools they provide that are helpful to buyers and sellers, their "Zestimates" are not one of them!

+Bill Gassett recently did an article talking about Zillow's home value estimates.  He points out in his article many reasons why consumers and real estate professionals shouldn't trust their estimates!

Las Vegas Real Estate Professional, +Debbie Drummond, then "piggy-backed" his article with an article reviewing how accurate they were in here local real estate market.  Not surprising to find out that Zillow's "Zestimates" are not very accurate!

I've decided to see how accurate Zillow's "Zestimates" are in my local Rochester, NY Real Estate market.  Guess what...not accurate here either and there is a very good chance they are not accurate nationwide!

Check out my article on the accuracy of Zillow's Home Value Estimates ("Zestimates") at http://rochesterrealestateblog.com/zillows-home-value-estimates-zestimates-accurate-or-not/.

Every homeowner who is considering a home improvement or remodel, should stop and think how it will effect their home's value!  Believe it or not some home improvement projects can decrease a homes value!

There are many improvement projects that a homeowner can choose from. Some increase value, some decrease value, and some do nothing to value.  

In certain cases a home improvement project that may decrease value or not get a homeowner a nice ROI (return on investment) may not be a terrible idea, if the plan is to stay at the home for an extended period of time and the homeowner will get years of personal enjoyment from the improvement.

There are certain projects that are a slam dunk when it comes to increasing value, if done properly.  An improvement of a homes kitchen or bathroom will increase a homes value, period.  Check out my latest article, "Home Improvement Projects that Increase a Homes Value" for some other great improvement projects that increase a homes value.

The article can be found at http://rochesterrealestateblog.com/home-improvement-projects-that-increase-a-homes-value/.
