itunes-subscribe-video.pngThis week in search was pretty exciting, especially towards the end of the week. Google's Matt Cutts said that a new algorithm update will specifically target overly SEO'ed sites. Google might be testing that because SEOs and Webmasters are noticing major fluctuations in the search results in which Google says is not Panda. Google's Panda thread was ripped apart with the new forum. Google released a video showing how they do their search quality meetings. Google announced how they keep ads safe, saying they terminated 800,000 advertisers and disallowed 130 million ads in 2011. Google updated the crawl error reports in Google Webmaster Tools. Google has a language bug spreading through their properties. Maile from Google released a great video on SEO and pagination. Matt Cutts said the new TLDs will have no impact on rankings. Bing said, for mobile SEO, go with one URL most of the time. Bing said they are as fresh as Google - but that is a lie. Google's Amit Singhal was cited by the Wall Street Journal as saying Google is releasing a major revamp of their search engine but truth is, it is not happening so soon and is a slow progression. Finally, Google has a sweet Doodle for the grandmaster of Origami, Akira Yoshizawa's 101st birthday. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.

Personally I welcome this new "over SEO" algorithm change. I think the people that will get hurt the most are the ones that purchase these services that look like mad science projects. Example: 1000 directory submissions 500 articles 1,000,000 bookmarks This is the crap that hurts our industry and causes Google to make wide sweeping algorithm changes. This approach was the right way at one point in time but some failed to evolve.  The ones that use strategy, marketing and good quality SEO knowledge will continue to flourish.

The first thing a lovely SEO company will do is speak about your proposed keywords & search phrases. Using keyword research tools they ought to speak about & recommend the most appropriate keyword & search phrase choice for your business.
