606: new post   Google traffic drops to ZERO. Penalized or pandalized?

611: new post   Google's 39 Algorithm Changes for May 2012
Improvements to Penguin. (launch codename "twref2", project codename "Page Quality") This month we rolled out a couple minor tweaks to improve signals and refresh the data used by the penguin algorithm.[br][br]Trigger alt title when HTML title is truncated. (launch codename "tomwaits", project codename "Snippets") We have algorithms designed to present the best possible result titles. This change will show a more succinct title for results where the current title is so long that it gets truncated. We'll only do this when the new, shorter title is just as accurate as the old one.

Other highlights include changes in indexing, spelling, sitelinks, sports scores features and more.
