Matt Cutts LOLs

You know him, you lov........well, you hope he loves you. 

If you're in SEO this face strikes either terror or affection in your heart; likely a little of both. Matt Cutts is the head of the Google anti-spam team and probably Google's best-known public face outside of Larry and Sergey. 

This site has a collection of some of the best Matt Cutts memes: http://cuttslol.com/

All results are not created equally.
 
What is your website's average ranking position in Google?

Good evening everyone. Most of you'd know that Google brings different results to different people for the same keyword. Depending on the factors like location, time, type, settings, google+ connections etc., the search results vary. But, the average ranking position gives a more realistic picture of your website's performance on Google.

Take a look at this infographic by +Anchor Wave Internet Solutions LLC to understand how your website’s average position on Google search results is calculated.

Take care and have a fantastic Sunday :-)

Oh brother...here we go.
 
#MozCast  Feature Alert. Last night, Google began testing paid content in Knowledge Graph boxes. As you may know, they recently launched KG boxes with car makes and models (ex. https://www.google.com/search?q=camaro). Last night, the following version popped up (see image; red box added) - noticed "Dealers nearby"? Those listings are paid content. It's just one niche, of course, but this has major implications for both PPC and local SEO.

Has the Authorship Purge Bottomed Out?

The screen cap below is from the +Moz MozCast Google Feature Graph for Authorship in SERPs. The Feature Graph tracks the occurrence of various special features of Google Search across a wide variety of sample queries.

As many of you know by now, over the past two weeks or so Google has begun to reduce the amount of Authorship rich snippets it shows in search, as Matt Cutts had promised they would do. For details, see my post at http://goo.gl/ViGqfZ

From the Mozcast graph, it looks like the purge may have finally bottomed out, which would mean I can finally start trying to do a final assessment of the damage.

If the Mozcast sampling is accurately representative of Google SERPs in general, we've had about a 3% reduction in queries showing Authorship results. Of course, the actual percentage of reduced Authorship results would be much larger than that, since many queries were showing more than one per SERP. At Pubcon this year, Matt Cutts hinted that it would be around 15%.
