Check out this survey that +Don Sturgill conducted on the perception of guest blogging 6 months later. It surveyed MyBlogU members so the responses might be a bit one sided, but there are some good insight/opinions in there.

My friends over at the Linkarati blog put together this great timeline about Google's manual penalties against big brand names.

I remember most of these thanks to the FUD that it always stirs up, but I had no idea that BMW got slammed for cloaking. 

Check it out!
ICYMI: Google Manual Penalties Against Brand Names: A Timeline

Did a quick search of "croatia" do double check my spelling (that's what Google is for right?) - and was surprised by the huge knowledge graph display for the #fifaworldcup  / match information. Google's get pretty good at this live knowledge graph thing and knowing what users are looking for.

I won the ultra-prestigious Wednesday Caption Contest  in the Link Builders community(  #nbd     #linkbuilding    #oscars  
The winner of our caption contest is +Thomas McMahon! Way to compare two Oscar winners to a blog comment link. Many kudos.  

Hope you all had fun again this week! I'll admit this one was harder, so I'll make next week's a little bit easier. Maybe Rand Fishkin will get caught in a Samsung product placement scam; who knows! Thanks for participating everyone!

Please help by donating and/or sharing this link along! Read more for details.

My friend, Lauren, just underwent emergency open heart surgery to replace a heart valve. As you can see from the photo, she's recovering well and is in great spirits as is usual for Lauren. -

The downside is that operations like this are expensive, even with health insurance. To help Lauren from sliding too far into debt from a life saving operation, some good friends started up this  #YouCaring  donation page with a goal of $10,000 - and we've already raised over $1,500 in only two days. 

We'd really appreciate the help of keeping the momentum up, and if you could donate any amount (even just a dollar, it adds up!) and/or just sharing this post/link with your circles and other social media accounts Lauren would truly appreciate it.
