Phew! What a month for the SEO industry and the SEJ during May! In this post I’ll be summarizing the top 6 articles.
#1 – We experienced another Google Penguin update
Not only did this shake the SERPs up, but we also learned the difference between a data refresh and an algorithm update. How were your sites affected by the Penguin 2.0 update?
#2 – We learned how to recover from from the update
Learning about the new update is one thing, but getting affected and getting back on your feet is a completely different thing. Thanks to Jayson, we know exactly what we need to do to recover from the update.
#3 – We received an excellent infographic on Google ranking factors
Thanks to Brian we received a thorough infographic on 200 Google ranking factors. This thing literally went viral! What was your favorite part of the infographic?
#4 – SEOMoz changed their name
Good move? Many of our readers say so. Moz is getting away from SEO and consulting and moving towards a software focus.
#5 – The mindset of an SEO
This one was my personal favorite. Your inner world creates your outer world, especially in SEO. Which task did you have to pickup?
#6 – Recover from link penalty
Link penalties are happening to a lot of webmasters out there. What do you do when it happens to you? This post answered these fundamental questions and gave practical advice to help you recover:
- What is an unnatural link?
- Was there an unnatural link penalty?
- How to locate them and how to remove them
Which post was your favorite? June is already a third over and many great posts are yet to come. 🙂
