My bet is still that it rolls out I've the holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July from your friends at #google
 
OK, we are officially closer to Panda. Either this week (or next). #seo

Been waiting for this, but would prefer that Google offer a real solution. Especially for all the ghost spam.

Good article about an old link spam tactic that (in some instances) still appears to work. #seo
 
Case study on how Spam still works and really drives up the cost of by-the-book SEO.
The purpose of this post is to demonstrate just how far the search engines have to go in combating spam.  (Alternatively, its a callout to force the issue for law firms to make a very careful decision about where you want to stand on the black hat vs. white hat tactical spectrum.) Mockingbird sees a lot of legacy... Keep Reading

Google is going to start republishing entire websites in serps soon. Just checked, this result works in mobile too.
 
An extremely impressive "structured data search result here".

The trigger term "menu" seems to initiate such a result!!

Curious if others are seeing some rich & structured SERP displays here?

This is the original query I entered: "Studio Savvy menu"

Studio Savvy is a local business and a hair salon with a menu of services, etc.

As a heads up, I posted this in the "rich and structured snippets" category, but it is possible a "structured SERP" section or something (Structured answers)  may be more accurate ... ???

I've seen that mostly in the case of restaurants, where a menu is nicely shown under different categories. Crazy to think of it being used for other things.

Much ado about nothing? Or were the top if serps already mostly mobile friendly? #seo
 
Its Day 3.  Time to ask, "hey Google, what mobile penalty?
Across the board, SEOs are asking “what rollout?”  Its gotten so odd the Google’s clarified, that yes, there has been a roll-out and in fact it is complete in some data centers… which now begs the question:  was this overhyped?  SEO Clarity’s study on over 50,000 queries shows a 5% change yesterday – so far...

Good article by +Patrick Sexton​ illustrating the importance of not just ranking for a term, but fulfilling the intent of the searcher.

Interestingly, +Rand Fishkin​ performed a test on a query just earlier tonight to see if user behavior from the serp could be used to manipulate rankings. You can see his Twitter account for the results of the test.
 
Matching user intent
The more people who go to your page from Google and then hit the back button, the lower our ranking will be. Often people hit that back button because they do not see immediately that your webpage will help them.
We as webmasters can not change a users intent, but we absolutely can let them know we have matched it.
We can do this by clearly and quickly letting them know that our webpage is exactly what they are looking for.
One of the most important factors of SEO, clearly matching user intent can boost your traffic by letting users know they are where they should be.

This is why we cant have nice things people!
 
Google can't manage MapMaker moderation. So, they shut down editing on it like it'll fix something. Yes, we've seen Edward Snowden in White House and few other things but was it that bad?

just happened to look at my profile and noticed the views. I'm about to hit 100K baby! Actually not very remarkable, considering most profiles I see have views in the millions. Still a cool number to see... so who wants to be the lucky 100,000th viewer???
