How have your Google rankings improved? What do you want to know about Google SERPs changes? By crowdsourcing the input from people such as you we can all learn from each other. This month WebmasterWorld Members reviewed the changes to Google's SERPs in a number of threads. No stone is unturned as we discuss the Panda refresh, a "quality refresh," core algo refresh, and an update dubbed "news wave." Don't get left behind on these updates and news as we have some interesting observations in this month's threads. See the links below to join in the discussions.
Bing's about to encrypt search traffic by default. Remember when Google did that we lost all the lovely keyword data and "not provided" became the default. Bing says it's not going that way, just yet.
We've even more changes coming to WebmasterWorld this month, so do look out for some new buttons and some updated profile options. Oh, and don't forget our great, free, Webmaster SEO Toolset. Yes, it's free, and you can find the tools here.
