* #SEO  AMA: Google's Gary Illyes at SMX*

What stands out to me:

Next Panda update/data refresh will be in 2-4 weeks.

Google uses clicks for experimentation, disambiguation, but not for ranking.

Mobile-friendly update did affect more queries than Panda or Penguin.

Structured data is important for brand entities.

Google's Gary Illyes Answers Burning SEO Questions
News from #SMX Advanced

Here are some highlights from the "Ask Me Anything" interview between +Danny Sullivan and Google PR rep +Gary Illyes:

• Next Panda update/data refresh will be in 2-4 weeks.
• Penguin goal is to be continual, but months away.
• Google uses clicks for experimentation, disambiguation, but not for ranking.
• Mobile-friendly update did affect more queries than Panda or Penguin.
• Apps can be a good thing, but it depends on the type of business.
#SEO is not dead and is "good for the users" except in one circumstance.
• Having feature snippets can help your site.
• Structured data is important for brand entities.
• Twitter integration is not for ranking, still in early stages.

I was scratching my head over this one. Well played indeed. Matt Cutts is NOT leaving Google to work at a search marketing company. But what might he do next? Quick poll.
 
+Matt Cutts is NOT Leaving Google for +Globe Runner

On Friday, +Bill Hartzer posted on announcement that Globe Runner was welcoming Matt Cutts as Director of Search, effective April 1. The post earned 70 comments and more than 500 social shares over the weekend. 

Cutts took to Twitter late Sunday, however, to refute the rumor: "Since two different people have emailed me about (http://globerunner.com/globe-runner-welcomes-matt-cutts-as-director-search/) ... Someone is doing an early April Fool's prank."
https://twitter.com/mattcutts/status/582258136125345792

Well played, Hartzer, well played. 

The audacious April Fool's joke does, however, bring up a question that's been lurking at the back of digital marketers' minds ... what is next for Cutts? Weigh in.

Be honest. What do you think of the new +Bruce Clay, Inc. logo? Should companies always use a logo for a profile pic?
 
Company Profile Photo: A Logo or a Face for BCI?

A poll for anyone interested! Should brands use logos as their profile image or are photos OK in some cases?

Our brand designer created a beautiful new round logo to use on the company's social media profiles. We quickly replaced the old icon on our Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest profiles, but with Google+, we're wondering if the choice is so clear. Before yesterday, we had Bruce's face in that little round window, maybe because we were waiting for a nicer branded logo and maybe because people just plain prefer looking at people. But now we have a logo that fits nicely and represents the brand well. So we were wondering, do you think brands should stick to using logos, graphics or mascots for a profile image, or is it ever OK to do something different, like using Bruce's photo in our case? Do you have examples of brands using imagery, with or without people, outside the box?

The team of Bruce Clay, Inc. community managers behind this page — +Paula Allen, +Kristi Kellogg and +Virginia Nussey (currently typing) — would love to know if you agree with either of the following poll options, and welcome your opinions as comments below.

The mobile-friendly annotation is missing from results that pass the Mobile-Friendly Test, replaced by other markup (like pagination/number of results on a page). Kind of a big deal, no? Hat tip +Stone Temple Consulting and +Grant Simmons. Get the whole story on the +Bruce Clay, Inc. blog.
 
Why the "Mobile-Friendly" label may be missing in Google SERPs

As the April 21st deadline to make your site mobile-friendly approaches, many sites are checking to see if their pages get the “mobile-friendly” annotation. Those two words are Google’s promise to searchers that a result meets a certain standard of usability that mobile surfers are starting to expect.

What’s concerning is that sometimes the label doesn’t show up — even though Google’s own Mobile-Friendly Test declares “Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly.”

In working with clients and through research, we've uncovered little-discussed reasons why a mobile-friendly annotation may not show up despite a page's being fully optimized for mobile browsing. Read this report by one of our senior SEO analysts, Maryann Robbins.

Thanks for the mention.
Although +Maile Ohye said our site wasn't going to be negatively affected by the algo update (ie it passed all tests as mobile friendly), we both agreed not having the 'mobile-friendly" tag in SERP might impact click through rates if / as consumers get educated that the tag means a better mobile experience.
Cheers

Man, this is AWESOME! Google+ has really developed our internal mindset for building community at BCI. Every one of the BCI community managers have learned a lot about what "add value" and "build relationships" really means on this responsive, reactionary, active  and ever-evolving platform. :)
 
So close ...

It was nearly one year ago that we decided to experiment with #Google+ and we decided to let growth happen naturally — just post good content, interact in comments, and participate in HOAs as our busy content team's time allowed. We divvied up the weekdays and assigned a different person to man (woman) our social media each day. In that time, we've learned a lot and gotten to know many great people here.

Now, here we are, just one follower shy of 1,000. On the brink!

Our investment of time in this platform has paid off. While G+ is not our top traffic referrer in terms of volume, we get more conversions resulting from Google+ traffic than from any other social media channel.

So to our #searchengine  marketing and #SEO  community of followers, we're taking this semi-momentous occasion to say thank you.

Oh, and if you'd like to recommend our page, we could use just one more friend ... ;)

My passion has always been Internet Marketing. I'm self taught, and all I require, is the opportunity for someone to open the doors to give me that opportunity. My website and business speak for themselves, in terms of Internet exposure.

Damn, wish I lived there.

Everyone loves Lemon Park, as it's called by the locals. During one lunchtime visit this summer, I watched a group of high schoolers work out on the fitness equipment, cheering each other on as each took turns climbing the rope. The water play area is so awesome and always filled with beaming children. What a community treasure!

Duck park! This park is huge and awesome. The pond plumbing is under construction and the ducks are hanging out in little flocks and gaggles around the grassy areas. Huge fields and court areas, rolling hills, tons of big shade-making trees, a community pool. We saw a picturesque scene during lunch on a weekday with couples dotting the grass and mothers strolling along with babies and children.

Expansive park with a fitness circuit trail and a whimsical playground with dinosaur fossil climbing feature. One of my favorite parks in Simi — which says something considering how many fantastic parks there are in this town!

Reviewing just the north part of the park and not the community center from a lunchtime mid-week visit, it was quiet and amenity filled. The covered picnic tables, basketball court and volleyball court stood out.

Not so much a park as a secluded patch of grass and scattered trees with a picnic table and three benches. Has potential for a teenage couple's late night rendezvous. ;)

A small park that's pretty isolated in a neighborhood, so it's not busy at lunch time. There are a couple picnic benches spread out, both shaded by trees, and a nice playground surrounded by a dirt path that would make a fun RC car track.
