    • Ranking in Google: 2009 - 2011
    • Twitter Data Danny Sullivan: If an article is retweeted or referenced much in Twitter, do you count that as a signal outside of finding any nonnofollowed links that may naturally result from it? Google: Yes, we do use it as a signal. It is used as a signal in our organic and news rankings. We also use it to enhance our news universal by marking how many people shared an article http://searchengineland.com/what-social-signals-do-google-bing-really-count-55389

    • Author Authority Danny Sullivan: Do you try to calculate the authority of someone who tweets that might be assigned to their Twitter page. Do you try to “know,” if you will, who they are? Bing: Yes. We do calculate the authority of someone who tweets. For known public figures or publishers, we do associate them with who they are. (For example, query for Danny Sullivan) Google: Yes we do compute and use author quality. We don’t know who anyone is in real life :-) http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html http://searchengineland.com/what-social-signals-do-google-bing-really-count-55389
    • Facebook Likes & Shares http://www.seomoz.org/blog/facebook-marketing-ultimate-guide
    • Brand Signals Brands Generics • Have real people working at a physical address • Often exist only online • Have authentic, followed social accounts • Rarely have significant social accounts • Display obvious, robust contact information • Frequently use email forms only • Register with government/civic organizations • Stay “under the radar” • Receive traffic from diverse sources • Search is often 90%+ of traffic • Generate branded search query volume • Have little-no branded search demand • Run offline marketing/advertising campaigns • Ignore the offline world http://www.seomoz.org/blog/the-next-generation-of-ranking-signals
    • Entity Association http://www.seomoz.org/blog/the-next-generation-of-ranking-signals
    • User & Usage Behavior http://www.quora.com/Did-Bing-intentionally-copy-Googles-search-results
    • How the Search Ranking Factors Have Changed in the Eyes of Experts
    • http://www.seomoz.org/article/search-ranking-factors
    • New data will be available on SEOmoz in April, 2011
    • Big Changes from 2009 to 2011 • Link-Based Factors are no longer 60%+ of the equation! • Social Data is perceived to be a significant player • Page-Level Link Metrics Fell the Most (43% - 22%) • Keyword-Level Domain Metrics, Brand Data + Social Rose • The Survey itself asked for more detail/specificity (which may be responsible for some of these shifts) The new version of the ranking factors will be online in April, 2011
    • A Look at Google’s “Farmer” (aka “Panda”) Update
    • Sites that Lost Visibility http://www.seomoz.org/blog/googles-farmer-update-analysis-of-winners-vs-losers
    • Sites that Gained Visibility http://www.seomoz.org/blog/googles-farmer-update-analysis-of-winners-vs-losers
    • From the Mouths of Googlers Wired.com: How do you recognize a shallow-content site? Singhal: (W)e asked the raters questions like: “Would you be comfortable giving this site your credit card? Would you be comfortable giving medicine prescribed by this site to your kids?” Cutts: (Using) a rigorous set of questions, everything from. “Do you consider this site to be authoritative? Would it be okay if this was in a magazine? Does this site have excessive ads?” Singhal: And based on that, we basically formed some definition of what could be considered low quality. http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/03/the-panda-that-hates-farms/all/1
    • From the Mouths of Googlers Wired.com: But how do you implement that algorithmically? Cutts: I think you look for signals that recreate that same intuition, that same experience that you have as an engineer and that users have. Singhal: You can imagine in a hyperspace a bunch of points, some points are red, some points are green, and in others there’s some mixture. Your job is to find a plane which says that most things on this side of the place are red, and most of the things on that side of the plane are the opposite of red. http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/03/the-panda-that-hates-farms/all/1
