929: new post   New York Times Goes After Yet Another SEO Strategy
"Though Google is apparently already battling back. On Thursday, a search of 'emergency locksmith Seattle' yielded only one Google Places result, not seven, but maybe more tinkering is needed. The site that landed on this prized perch appeared to be a lead gen operation, it's 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, which lists its address at a U.P.S. store. The woman who answered the phone at 24/7 would say nothing about the company, or even where she was located."

960: new post   Panda Metric : Google Usage of User Engagement Metrics
I am continually surprised at some in the community that point to a couple of individual metrics as 'the ones' that caused xyz to happen in the most recent update. I think it is time to look at the greater picture of data that Google has available.[br][br]Eric Enge had a presentation at PubCon Austin that he felt Panda pumped up 20% user engagment metrics into the algo. It really got me thinking about this aspect indepth. I started to put together a list of possible data sources google could use as metrics (signals), and I was pretty surprised at how large a list it became with very little effort.
