Here is a 7 minute video of what to expect relative to the Google SEO algorithm as of May 2013. This is a very rare insight into what’s coming from Matt Cutts. If you don’t have 7 minutes, great content is still king and black hat spamming still out.

As many of our readers know, the Google Panda Update has negatively impacted websites that acquired links from low quality article sites and other sources. Google’s algorithm has been updated to favor high quality, on-site content and social media dominance over off-site link popularity.
Here is a great info graphic that shows how things have changed.
According to Bing this a.m. Today I am happy to share that Bing is powering Yahoo!’s search results in the US and Canada (English only for now, the other languages will come in the weeks and months ahead)
Bye bye Yahoo search, hello Bing. Note the Powered by Bing at the bottom of the Yahoo! search page. Bing notes the migration to adCenter and the great milestone this is for Yahoo and Bing. We as marketers could not agree more, hello two search engines!
False. PPC is not necessarily quicker then SEO, anymore. Yes, PPC used to be a quicker way to get results on search engines, and in many cases still is, however Google’s focus on providing the latest, freshest results (Google Caffeinated) and including results from blog posts and social media platforms, often within minutes, has made it easier to get into organic listings more quickly.
Forums are these wonderful little creations that open up all sorts of topics to anyone with a question or just gathering information. They are usually niche-oriented because a forum that catered to all the questions anyone needed answered would be called the “Chaos forum.”
SEO is one of those industries that you can’t really learn everything about because it is constantly changing. I began my job a while ago and I still struggle to keep up with all the new lingo, tips and tactics that SEOers come up with daily. So, I go to a forum to check out latest news and happenings.
Do not be afraid of them! Forums are a way for everyone to advance their knowledge of a subject. If you ask a question and let current users know you are new, they will most always be kind to you and offer some REALLY great advice (just make sure your post is original. Sometimes they get a little miffed at repeated questions, which is understandable).
So without further ado, here are my top picks for SEO forums to get started in:
Guaranteed, any question you have has already been asked in one of these places, so do a little digging, read the posts and comments and you’ll probably come out of the forum way more educated than you were going in and good luck! » Read more..
I took an initial look at Sphinn and all I have to say is wow, it’s great. Digg is for the techies, Reddit is for random weird stuff but Sphinn is a collection of articles from all over the place about SEO! What a great and NOVEL idea. So if you need an extra resource to get a glimpse of who’s who in SEO or just learn a little more information, this is a fantastic starting point. Kudos to you Danny and the rest of Search Engine Land. A product the web can be proud of!
