This is a very good video on the changes Google is making that affect SEO's. It relays research results on Google's search market (if you count referrals then it's 87%), how social, safe search, image search has changed.

Did you know that browsers were changed so everyone has safe search turned on now unless you set it the way you want?

I wish Google would leave things alone. We go to all the trouble to set up Authorship so images show up next to the SERPs then Google takes it back off. It almost inspires me to not post in G+ either as they might take that away also.

Even though Google needs SEOs and SEOs need Google, the search giant continues to make our jobs more challenging. The strategies and tactics that work for search and users has radically changed and yet there are still constants and will continue to be many opportunities for resourceful SEOs. In this presentation, veteran search marketer Marshall […]

I started a new moblie site the other day and spent about an hour trying to figure out why the site wasn't displaying as mobile. I finally realized I had Wrapper set up as a class in the HTML and as an ID in CSS. Ha!  learned that lesson hard.

Pinterest problem: I have my banner broken up into 3 images on my webpage and pinterest is only showing those 3 images on the page and therefore none of the other images are available for pinning (all in jpg, gif or png and not set up via CSS). Does anyone know how I  can increase the amount of images available for pinning on my website?

Here is a very good video on the History of Seo, how search engines started and why Google prevailed where the others failed. There is also a discussion on whitehat (building brands slowly) vs blackhat SEO (churn and burn domains).

The research behind this article gives new insights into the possibility that Penguin penalties or improvements are based on the Flesch-Kincaid readabilty levels. This makes a lot of sense when spun content, used by most spammers, would have an extremely low readability level.

I have been purposely writing content below my own knowledge level (BA in English) on my own website because most of my visitors/clients are not technically literate-- some hardly know how to send an email. Maybe that was a mistake.

Frustrations with Filing a Reinclusion Request on Google

One of my client's competitors, who has been harming my client's site for the last 9 years has been buying 100's of thousands of links on Ebay auctions and pointing a couple thousand of them at my client, which caused a manual penalty from Google. We just reported this to Google in a reinclusion request. We suspect he is doing this to all his competitors.

If you have experienced a massive increase in back links, first check Ahrefs.com to get a graph of the date of increase in links. Then check the recent backlink auctions on Ebay.com (or other auction sites) and get info on the buyers and hopefully find a competitor. If so, then search for all the auctions they have won, match the dates of the sale with increase of backlinks to your site and send that info to Google. You may need more proof that it was indeed your competitor doing this, however.
