itunes-subscribe-video.pngVery busy week at Google, mostly because of I/O but a lot of other things going on - it didn't help that I was offline for two days. We first discuss the ten changes coming to Google related to SEO, including softening Panda, an authority boost and the next generation Penguin update. That next generation penguin update is expected to be significantly larger than the first Penguin update. Google targeted another link network, many webmasters complained, but I am not sure which network it was. Google added organization schema support, but this only works in the knowledge graph. Bing now does auto suggestions for people names. Google discontinued SMS search. Google also dropped the translated foreign pages feature, for now. Want access to the new Google Maps, we have instructions on signing up. Google Maps now lets you move your reviews from one listing to another. We released four polls this week including 35% said they will block Google Images, 47% said they don't proactively uses the disavow link tool, 57% said they don't fear the disavow tool and only 9% claim they recovered from Google's Penguin update. The latest Google Easter Egg is an image search for atari breakout. Finally, we have all the Mother's Day logos from the search industry. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.
