In case you haven't seen the news yet. They only announced it a couple of hours ago.

Penguin 4.0 officially launched today.

After about 2 years we finally not only get the update but as hoped, it's a rolling update. No more waiting for a Penguin refresh. Woo Hoo!
The latest announced release, Penguin 4.0, will also be the last, given its new real-time nature.

Interesting New Topic Research Tool we discussed while recording the show today. Basically a new "Google Suggest" tool that seems to pull in a bit more and does a decent job of displaying the data.

Would love to know your thoughts.

Added support to choose from multiple currencies. Chrome version has gone live (v4.2). Firefox version should be going live soon.

This becomes more and more often now. However, the changes are not big - they just emphasise on what we shall consider always when we optimise website performance for search.

Just found an article I wrote Jan 2006 (10 years ago) titled:

"Rank Checking, It's Not Worth the Effort"

Yep, for ten years I have been trying to tell people that search engine rankings are not the goal of SEO.

Someday it will be common knowledge. Someday.

Nice to be associated with a Network that is in such good company.

Interesting presentation, I wish they would have added some kinda of actual game component though. Plus the "Go to Jail" space should have been about penalties, not user behaviour. LOL

Here's the link to Rand's post about MOZ returning to a focus on SEO. Mentioned on this week's show.
Preface: This is a hard post to write, and one that’s taken far longer than I hoped to publish. Never before have I been so challenged to walk the line between empathy and transparency. Never before have I had to get a blog post approved by my boss, board, and legal team. And so I …

A very open and transparent account of what's going on at Moz. I'm amazed that they trade the company at a loss and even more amazed that companies lend money to loss-making businesses.

Yesterday Google's YouTube announced "Communities".

If this has any long term impact on the Google+ Communities we may have to actually start showing you folks our faces while we record. Arrrgh.

We have seen other aspects of Google+ move to other Google initiatives so we will be keeping a close eye on this.

Nice find +John Carcutt The suggestions are obvious but a very welcome reminder to actually do them, rather than just know the theory.

Unfortunately it looks like healthcare is one of the categories that doesn't get instant verification.

I recently bought a new Jeep at Global and my experience was very good. I found these guys by driving by and had not seen any TV or heard any Radio spots and thought they might not be to pushy or aggressive because of that and I was right.Our salesman Scott met us outside and was careful to give us our space. We knew exactly the type of Jeep we wanted and Scott walked us out back to see the selection. Overall experience was a pleasure and I would recommend these guys for a Jeep purchase any day. Ask for Scott because he will treat you right.
