(1) Authorship in Search – Google’s Reward to Great Authors– Google has been recently pushing authorship mark-ups to be included on websites, as they will be starting to highlight content creators in their search results. Matt Cutts also mentioned on an interview by Danny Sullivan that they’ll be using another site/content metric in gauging quality and importance of content through the reputation of its creator – which he called Author Rank.

(5) How Google’s Panda Update Changed SEO Best Practices Forever – Whiteboard Friday – It’s here! Google has released Panda update 2.2, just as Matt Cutts said they would at SMX Advanced here in Seattle a couple of weeks ago. This time around, Google has – among other things – improved their ability to detect scraper sites and banish them from the SERPs. Of course, the Panda updates are changes to Google’s algorithm and are not merely manual reviews of sites in the index, so there is room for error (causing devastation for many legitimate webmasters and SEOs).
