I've never been too forward about what I do or who I work for, but a recent client decided to publish an SEO audit I completed for them:
The irony of inbound.org having such terrible SEO was unendurable. Since we're marketers marketing to marketers about marketing and we believe in radical transparency (and since @NathanSheusi

Another patent covering link/resource scoring. Again, if you are in SEO you should be making yourself aware of these things, and the best source by far and away is +Bill Slawski 
 
A Google patent discusses how a site might be labeled a low quality site by Google based upon the links from other pages pointed to the site, and how this can potentially reduce rankings for a page.
A Google patent describes how it may assign a site a low quality score based upon the links pointed to the site; such as links from boilerplate or multiple redundant resources on a site.

Read. Excellent presentation of stats and figures from opponents of Google's Shopping Comparison practices in the EU (and particularly the UK).

Very well put together.
 
Is this really why Panda was introduced.

One of the best reports I have read on the Anti Trust Debate: http://www.foundem.co.uk/fmedia/Foundem_Jun_2015_Analysis/

It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic...

Big niche, and getting #1 rank for [crm software] with spam like this is pretty sad:

I suspect some if the methods discussed here go well beyond classification of site links, and may indicate how overall scoring of links occurs. This also goes to show just how advanced the rendering abilities of Google may be.

Great work from +Bill Slawski​ (as usual), and very much worth reading if you're an SEO.
 
Visual Sitelinks

Google has a new granted patent and a newly published patent application on the sitelinks that they might show in search results for a site. Are sitelinks showing for your site, and if not, why not?
A new Google Granted Patent and Patent Application describe how search results site links might be generated for a site, and what factors Google may look at when deciding.
