Back in March Google announced a crack down on doorway pages (http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/an-update-on-doorway-pages.html). I've not heard of any movement and haven't noticed any fluctuation on sites with pages that I consider borderline. I wonder if anyone has any info? +John Mueller +Gary Illyes +Pierre Far

Matt does not answer the title question (Are pages from social media sites ranked differently?) in this video. He answers a different question; “Are Facebook and Twitter signals part of the ranking algorithm? How much do they matter?”

3. I'd love to see it on the streets of New Delhi or Hanoi

There are a large number of companies looking for an IPO this year. That got me wondering how SEO might affect their success or otherwise. Potentially, some historic short-term SEO or an over reliance on natural search might make investment a riskier prospect.

Old, dangerous cars, rude service, no mention made of £800 deposit required, fuel rip offs etc. etc. I would not recommend Marbesol to anyone.

Totally needed a new shoe for my arse as my current one had worn through. This was just the place for me as they have a fine selection of arse shoes for all your anus footwear needs.
