Search Buzz Video Recap: Google Penguin Recoveries, Buying Links, Google Home & Assistant

Oct 7, 2016 - 8:58 am 0 by

This week, I cover a lot more on Penguin. First, the recoveries have started and Google confirmed it should be done fairly soon, probably next few days. The recoveries thus far look very impressive. Early on, our polls showed that the recoveries were not but that has changed. Google says you should keep on using the disavow file even though Google devalues with Penguin versus demotes. Google paid $100,000 for a link from, nah but still funny. Google said negative SEO still not a concern for them. Google said directories are not the right way to build links. Google said 301 redirecting all your old pages to your home page will result in them being a soft 404. Google showed off the Google Home and Assistant and how they handle featured snippets is way cool. Most SEOs want an intrusive ad interstitial penalty tool from Google. Google is testing an advanced verification method for Google My Business. Google is displaying more images in the mobile results. Google AdWords updated their mobile apps. Google AdWords Editor upgraded to version 11.6. Google AdSense launched a new design for their ad units. Google Analytics is working on the referrer spam issue. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
