Matt Cutts shares Google's upcoming plans, including Panda, Penguin, value of links and more
Bonnie Burns's insight:
Speculation is that it will hit within a couple weeks. The take-away here: You should have already been working on cleaning up your link profile. If you haven’t done that, now is definitely the time. You also want to focus on building quality links via sharing quality content through social media.
Panda has created a scenario where publishers who don't embrace SEO are condemned to feel the sting of what happens when they don't. SEO DOES WORK but you can't rely on your father's methods anymore.
The battle between marketers and Google has been raised to a very high level and as more and more of everyday decisions are being made with the help of search, the stakes have become critical. Many businesses operate totally online without the net of a brick and mortar business to support them when things go wrong.
After many months following the blog and video posts of Google's Search Quality Group big cheese "Matt Cutts" I have been making notes and decided to write down some of his confirmed statements related to SEO and Google rankings.
Google launched a tool to allow site owners to disavow links.
The tool itself if really easy to use. But Google doesn’t want you to think that everyone should rush to use it right away. Google has been very clear that they consider this an advanced tool for “Power Users” and not something that everyone needs. In other words: people should be careful messing around with it.
Here are some key points that you should consider:
A WebmasterWorld thread has SEOs and webmasters discussing the fact that some of them have removed 75% or more of their content from their web site or is planning to based on all the changes with the Google algorithm related to the Panda algorithm...
Google Algorithm History project, an archival document tracing named algo updates from 2003 to the present. Aomplete history of named Google algorithm changes, from “Boston” in 2003 to Panda 2.3 (or whatever the kids are calling it these days).
