Google Penguin 1.1, Google Shopping, Google+ Local & Fault

4y ago

Description - Google finally pushed out a Penguin algorithm refresh, it was done early Saturday morning and named Penguin 1.1. We thought Google released a Panda refresh a day or so ago but it wasn't confirmed. Google Product Search is being decommissioned and replacing it is a paid Google Shopping service. Google seems to be showing less rich snippets suddenly. Google+ Local is replacing Google Places, some cool changes but worry comes with it. We also have details and FAQs on what businesses should do or not do with Google+ Local changes. Google in China is being censored like crazy and there is a video that shows how bad it is. Google updated the "can competitors harm my rankings" statement. Amit, the head of Google search, was happy to overhear a conversation in Starbucks about how Penguin and Panda stops SEO tricks. And Amit is to blame for Penguin and Panda, not me. I posted two skewed polls, one saying 65% of SEOs were hurt by the Penguin update and 14% of SEOs fully trust Google. That was this past week in search at the Search Engine Roundtable.
