If you’re wondering what’s in store from Google for 2013, the video above shows Matt Cutts giving an elaborate explanation of what to expect.

29 Jul More Garbage Google Results

I was shopping for a specific watch and I think among any type of search result, shopping ones are such garbage. Post Panda you'd think things would be better off but a clear example of what should have been fixed, is well, spammed out. Duplicate pages from two sites littering the search results albiet the top few are actually form Omega. This post really doesn't bring much substance out, more so just a quick rant from an online marketer when...

28 Feb Google's Changes To Duplicates In Site Links

So Google's 40 new changes to their algorithm in February brought on many new changes. While there are already many blog posts covering the changes I thought we'd look at some humor. Of course, the folks at Google state a lot of stuff that just doesn't yet work or take effect. I'm quite content in saying that half of the stuff that comes out of their PR department is bollocks and mostly just hype. For example, they stated they're making sure...

03 Nov WashingtonPost.com Advertising Fail

A lot of people think ads on a website were a big factor in the Google Panda algorithm update despite a Google spam team employee stating they didn't factor in ads. If they had, or if they did without telling us then the Washington Post needs a smack upside the head. I was doing my daily redditing and came across a link that lead me to their site and this is what I got smacked in the face with...

28 Oct Google Webmaster Central Gets Halloween Themed

  The only thing more spooky than what's going on with Google's SERPs lately is their Halloween inspired theme going on. If you drop on in to the Google Webmaster Central you'll see this on your screen while you're trying to give or get help. I've always seen the homepage get an animation or graphic, but this is the first time I've seen it elsewhere in the network. Not really much of a post, just thought I'd fill in some words...
