Please take this poll, we would love your feedback!
 
My latest blog article on the +Bruce Clay, Inc. blog. Does Google have a responsibility to webmasters to refresh Penguin? I work with a lot of businesses who are under penalty that have done their due diligence in cleaning up their link profiles and have been waiting for a refresh for 10+ months now. Meanwhile, over the past 2 months, Google has seemed to refresh every algorithm EXCEPT Penguin. Does Google have a duty to refresh? Or at least be transparent about why they haven't? #seo   #penguin   #google  
Google embraces its role as moral guardians of the web and holds all the power in a near search monopoly. Google offered webmasters a means of repentance from Penguin and now owes businesses an algorithm refresh.

+Stephen Evermore there's a good chunk of people who agree with you (myself included). The intent of including the poll is to add engagement to the post. +Robert Ramirez makes a strong case and we thought it'd be interesting to see if people agree. (I'm BCI's content manager.) Thought a poll would be an easy way to add more voices. We'd love comments to really develop the convo but in lieu of that, a single button click allows for easy interaction.

So I am hiring... and I suddenly wonder when JOBS will be added to G+... why not? Everyone will be here so this is a good spot to add it? Why would I want to go anywhere else?

First test - when you are away from the internet for a while, when you do get back where do you go first? I noticed I go to G+ first and I think it worthy. Check tomorrow... G+ grows on you quickly. I can see myself edging away from the other sites ... what were they again?

Not exactly sure what they were but G+ is a great go to place for keeping up.

I think that the opportunities for social and search and ad reach will be fantastic with G+... and I for one think Google brilliant for arranging a perfect storm. With Business Pages however, while great for small businesses, they will compete with our own websites for ranking, making G+ a hub and a top-ranking one at that... think Wikipedia for companies powered by social. You know what that means, right? SEO is top-3 organic or fail. Open for rebuttal...

Nice writeup. I know it's tempting to use URL shorteners, but I always hated the loss of branding there... What do you think of the idea of using yourdomain.com/+ as a shortcut? Provided you have a short enough domain this makes more sense to me

I think that we have not seen the full impact until Google uses our data (perhaps with analytics) to out-do the FB persona targeting with their own behavior targeting for those ads that are sure to come. And I am sure we will see local and adwords impact the revenue model. I expect ad crossover will be implemented before year end. How many believe Google is NOT in business to make money?

Fascinating. I just had time to actually use G+. I think Iwill have an enhanced experience because of what was learned with Facebook& Linkedin. The early use taught me that I need to group friends as workand personal, and as colleagues, employees, competitors, work friends, or not.Thanks to Facebook for helping get us to G+... too bad you were not therefirst. I want educated dialog and proper alerts and news, not more"farmers" than a small country.
