Even without those pesky Senate hearings, Google has had an especially busy year. Whether you love them, hate them, or somewhere-in-between them, we all depend on them. So we all certainly took note of these five changes: Panda – This series of algorithm changes (in February, April, and June) nailed low-quality sites, especially those using duplicate content. But hey, they warned us. Impact: high. Google+ – The giant’s version of social networking went live this summer and, by the end of the year, had adapted to suit businesses … Continue reading
The week between Christmas and New Year’s is one of my favorites. After 51 weeks of non-stop grinding, it’s time to reflect and get organized.

Richer … Continue reading
It’s nearly time to ring in the New Year. Soon, the ball will drop and 2012 will be upon us in all its glory. Couples will kiss at midnight and the past year’s trials and triumphs will be cleared to make way for new ones. This is as true for your SEO as it is for your New Year’s resolutions. Didn’t make it to the first page of Google? Don’t worry about that anymore. Focus on the things you can do now to improve your future. Is your … Continue reading
