Find out how complicated and confusing Google's SEO Rules have become. SEO-friendly web design has evolved into its own genre of web coding. Yet, very few web designers have a deep understanding of SEO.

Something to be wary of - you can get hit by competitors if you don't keep a watchful eye out
Last week however one of our client's sites received an "Unnatural Links" notification in Webmaster Tools. Given that we haven't been link building for this client or site and we know that they haven't then this was a bit of a surprise... i...

You may think that I believe Google to be wrong with their link penalties. I do. http://www.aqueous-digital.co.uk/backlinks/googles-link-penalties-stupid-pointless-damaging-business
Google's policy of penalising bad backlink profiles is fundamentally wrong. It is unnecessary, damaging and could be seen as abuse.

Worrying experiment with disavow links files. Treat these with extreme caution!
 
The Sad State of My Search Traffic After Disavowing 35,000 Links

http://cyrusshepard.com/google-disavow-caution/

On April 3, 2013 I disavowed every link to my website I could find through Google Webmaster Tools.

35,000 links. Gone.

It was an experiment, documented on Moz, to better understand how Google’s Disavow Tool worked. For almost the first two months, nothing happened. My site ranked for all types of phrases, even top 10 for competitive keywords like “SEO blog.”

Then, shortly after Google released Penguin 2.0 in late May, my rankings started to drop. They dropped like a rock.

No more smiley faces :(
 
I’ve been involved since we first started testing authorship markup and displaying it in search results. We've gotten lots of useful feedback from all kinds of webmasters and users, and we've tweaked, updated, and honed recognition and displaying of authorship information. Unfortunately, we've also observed that this information isn’t as useful to our users as we’d hoped, and can even distract from those results. With this in mind, we've made the difficult decision to stop showing authorship in search results. 

(If you’re curious -- in our tests, removing authorship generally does not seem to reduce traffic to sites. Nor does it increase clicks on ads. We make these kinds of changes to improve our users’ experience.)

On a personal note, it's been fun and interesting travelling the road of authorship with all of you. There have been weird quirks, bugs, some spam to fight, but the most rewarding thing has been (and will continue to be) interacting with webmasters themselves. We realize authorship wasn't always easy to implement, and we greatly appreciate the effort you put into continually improving your sites for your users.  Thank you!

Going forward, we're strongly committed to continuing and expanding our support of structured markup (such as schema.org). This markup helps all search engines better understand the content and context of pages on the web, and we'll continue to use it to show rich snippets in search results.

It’s also worth mentioning that Search users will still see Google+ posts from friends and pages when they’re relevant to the query — both in the main results, and on the right-hand side. Today’s authorship change doesn’t impact these social features.

As always, we’ll keep expanding and improving the set of free tools we provide to make it easier for you to optimize your sites. Thank you again, and please keep the feedback coming.

Further to your recent work for me I thought I’d drop you a line to say thank you for the solution you have given me. Despite your initial call being out of the blue you expressed a view that you could help me with the planning and forecasting within my business and this struck a chord with me. Having spent seven years of my life as a Planning Manager for a ‘blue chip’ organisation the one thing I was missing in my own company was a formalised planning tool. From our initial meeting I was impressed that you went out of your way to understand my business and looked for ways you could create something that would genuinely add value. This approach was refreshing as so many people who approach me are simply looking to sell me a ‘one size fits all’ solution and have little interest in me or my business. The process was simple and frankly you did what you said you were going to do, when you said you were going to do it, which makes you unusual in today’s environment! In terms of the solution, I now have a flexible planning tool that allows me to see where my business is going, assess future capacity needs and provide a flex forecasting tool to help guide future development and recruitment decisions. On that basis I have no hesitation in recommending you to others, and in fact have already sent you one contact that I believe would benefit from talking to you.
