There have been a ton of updates over the last several days and weeks. Some details are listed below.

Top Heavy 2 – http://searchengineland.com/google-page-layout-algorithm-update-135847
Panda update 20- http://searchengineland.com/google-panda-update-20-released-2-4-of-english-queries-impacted-135291

One of the bad things about all these updates happening so frequently is it’s getting very hard to tell exactly how an update is affecting you – or which one did it. If you were affected by the update then the best thing to do is to pretend that you’ve been affected by both of them.

We’re still doing some research to figure out things that worked and things that didn’t.

Today’s Tip –

I know this is going to sound a bit counter intuitive – but try them. It won’t take very much money, and if it helps you it will be well worth it, and if not then you’ve only spent a few bucks.

1. First take a look at the top five results for whatever SERP you’re chasing.
2. Ask yourself a few questions –
Are they running an adwords campaign?
Do they have a Facebook page?
Do they have a Pinterest page?
Do they have a twitter account?
Are they on Google Plus?

They probably are, and you should be doing all of those as well.
