How many of you are using All in One #SEO Pack for WP? If you're not using the latest version, you could be exposing your site to malicious coding.

Matt Cutts confirmed that Google has taken action against My Blog Guest. How many of you have used this platform? How worried are you about potential action against your link profile?
 
Yikes! Google penalizes My Blog Guest - how bad do you suppose the fallout will be?
Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts, announced really early this morning on Twitter that Google has taken action on “a large guest blog network.” Cutts previously warned the webmaster and SEO community that guest blogging is done, at least for SEO and link building purposes. Well, it might not have been done — it […]

Finally! Linked images on #googleplus  
 
New Google+ Link Preview Cards

Well, well, well. As some of you may have noticed, there was an update to Google+ that started to roll out last night. Check out the new link preview below. Notice the larger image? Site name? Article Description?

This is a huge deal for businesses and bloggers and marketers.

+martin shervington did a brilliant job of bringing this to my attention last night as a group of us had fun talking about and exploring the new feature... well into the late night hours.

The article below summarizes all of the noted changes, and what those changes mean for marketers. I explain in more detail:

 - All of the new link preview features
 - What's different from the old link preview
 - What's different from image shares
 - What the SEO ramifications are
 - How to get started with your own shares

As new aspects of the update, or other new features, are noticed, this post and article will be updated accordingly.

Enjoy the great new link previews!

#GooglePlus  #GooglePlusUpdate #Blogging 
Have you noticed the new link preview cards that are showing up on Google+? Here's everything you need to know, including how to get started, and what these new link shares mean for businesses and bloggers.

Naturally, G+ is going to favor its own platform.
 
State of the State on G+ Impact on SERPs
Based on what I have learned this past Summer and Fall, here is where we are in regard to G+ impact on SEO.

http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2307518/Google-SEO-How-Google-Impacts-Search-Results

This includes what I learned in the study we did to directly measure the impact on non-personalized rankings:

http://www.stonetemple.com/measuring-google-plus-impact-on-search-rankings/

and the interview I did with +Danny Sullivan where he revealed what he was told about Hummingbird and Social Signals at Google's 15th birthday party event.

Bottom line: The impact is already very real, and there is much more to come!

Just when you thought you were getting used to the dashboard, ready for Google My Business? Thanks for posting, +Local Oxygen
 
You’ve probably heard of Google My Business by now, but if not, or you’re looking for what to do next, check out this guide. This is especially crucial to any local #marketing plan, but particularly for small #businesses!
Google has created Google My Business, a one-stop shop for small business owners looking to increase their visibility within Google search, Google Maps, and Google+. Users will also be able to access their applications in one place.

Thanks for sharing, +Rod Holmes definitely worth reading!
 
I haven't seen this posted here...sorry if it's a duplicate, but it's the best summary of the current state of SEO aimed at Google search  I've seen.

The TLDR summary by the author is:
1. Google’s primary concern is not “the web” or “you” – it’s Google
2. Penguin is not always fair – Google knows it but… see #1
3. Panda is not always fair – Google knows it but… see #1
4. Google talks the talk, but does not walk the walk and there’s nothing we can do about it
5. “Creating good content” guarantees you JACK SHIT when it comes to ranking
6. SEO is as alive now as it was a decade ago
7. SEO has evolved to become the result of an actual marketing strategy versus marketing tactics
8. Your pony is dead
As the entire search world knows, Matt Cutts released a post last week - I'm paraphrasing - warning us that Google now considers "low quality guest posting" to be spam under their guidelines and will begin to take action in accordance with those beliefs. I don't plan to revolve this post entirely ar
