Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Ranking Algorithm Tremors On May 7th & May 9th
    I am seeing an increase in chatter amongst the SEO industry around a possible Google search ranking algorithm update around Friday, May 7th and then again on Sunday, May 9th.

  • John Mueller Relaunches His Old Blog
    Back in 2004 John Mueller started his personal blog while he was the owner of a small marketing and development company - like many of you.

  • Vlog #119: Justin Abrams On Human Experience Marketing & Adaptation of Technology
    In part one with Justin Abrams, the Senior SEO Consultant at BrightEdge and also the co-founder of Cause of a Kind...
  • Is This New? Hat
