itunes-subscribe-video.pngHappy Thanksgiving weekend everyone! This week there was a tremendous amount of chatter and signals pointing to a Google update but Google won't admit to it. They did say a Panda update will happen later next week, probably. There may have also been an image update at Google Images. Bing has their own Webmaster Guidelines now. Google says it shouldn't take more than a couple weeks for a reconsideration request response and then details the four types of responses Google typically sends out. Google's Matt Cutts said going HTTPS should be fine now. Twitter is cloaking out TweetDeck to point Google to Twitter. Google's OCR technology on PDFs is far from perfect. Google's new top navigation is now global. We have the Thanksgiving Day logos but Yahoo forgot theirs. That was this past week at the Search Engine Roundtable.

I'm continually perturbed by the fact that webmasters do not realize it's Thanksgiving/Shopping holiday week, so people are not at work surfing the internet. Should I come up with an SEO product on how to get people's traffic back and watch it work almost all the time once the holidays are over? What am I missing here Barry? Sam

The traffic questions were from last weekend, not this weekend.

Barry, A LOT of people take the entire week off for Thanksgiving and therefore will be away starting 11/17. Dont you remember how offices cleared out when you worked at a company? Don't worry about the traffic Barry. Take it from a blogger who is out of the SEO noise.

They sure do. If you are taking the week off, you might as well go Fri, Nov 16 and come back Sunday, November 25. Please, let's not have this type of argument because it really makes the SEO industry look bad. When people are on holiday, search traffic goes down, pure and simple. To fear monger, panic, and not understand why traffic goes down during the holidays is to discredit the entire industry's expertise.

Barry, you traffic back now that people are back from the holidays? Hope so. Still think there was a Google update on Thanksgiving?
