The Next Six Months

Matt Cutts, head of Google’s (anti) Web Spam team (and thus SEO), provides us some insights into the upcoming Penguin 2.0 release

What will the future hold for SEO? 

 There’s two main things brought up here that you may want to pay attention to:

1. Google’s renewed focus on making sure that “advertorials” (and thus sponsored product reviews) do NOT flow page rank. This is really simply a clarification as we’ve known for a long time that all sponsored links need to be “nofollow” and disclosed. Sponsored means that you received anything (including a review copy) from the company that you did not pay for.

2. Google is working on improved ways to detect authority authors/blogs. Is this the long awaited Author Rank that leans heavily on Google+? Possibly.

(And I had a chuckle at him wearing a Firefox rather than Chrome shirt!)

Are you ready for Penguin 2.0?

I would like to suggest rss feed readers for those who update their blog less frequently as it brings fresh content to your page and whenever a search engine crawls your page finds new material I found

a good rss scroller tool for joomla but there must be other versions for wordpress and etc

As per Google folks! with recent algorithm they have scored a good result in obtaining better searches for their users and with Google+ this is definitely going to be huge. Google has been saying from the beginning to use your natural way of connecting your content to the web, & this is what they recommend now as well but with add Google+ to it -- would make more sense(just like adding the additional flavor to your content).

I saw this video a few days ago, the upcoming changes could and will make SEO a lot harder and time consuming. I believe soon, social signals will play a bigger part than links, what do you think?

Google are continuing to work on hacked sites to detect them better. They’re also trying to improve communication to webmasters by providing a one stop shop where when someone realizes they’ve been hacked they can go to one place and obtain a lot more information to point them in the right direction to clean up their hacked site.

When the hype about Google penguin started they mentioned a lot of things about back-linking using high ranked blogs by commenting specifically which i didn't understand at the time and not sure if i will understand now. How does this penguin affect the backlinking strategies most webmasters are using?

I've watched the video last week, I've also read few articles about latest Panda and Penguin updates, but at the end of the day, nothing major would happen in the near future and again only spammy websites and websites that violate Google ToS will be penalized.
