A screenshot of the form Google posted to request feedback on their search policiesToday Google announced the release of a form which offers you and me to provide them with our thoughts on how they should police and manage their search results. Yes, you read that right… they are listening to our feedback… if for a short time. So, head on over there and make yourself heard while you can.

The questions they are asking are:

What is the Search issue that you want to improve?

What is your proposed policy change or solution?

And you have the ability to add corresponding examples and other information in a final form field.

If you entered some suggestions we would love to hear about them in the comments. Please share! We might even raise your points on the next episode of SEO 101 on WebmasterRadio.FM

 

 

The Vine logoThe clock is ticking, and you have 6.5 seconds to make an impression. That’s the premise behind Vine, Twitter’s micro-video app that’s sweeping across social media platforms.

Make an Impression

In a 6.5-second video, the worst thing you can be is boring. A Vine video doesn’t need a call to action or even specific information about your business. If it leaves viewers impressed, you just earned a small dose of brand loyalty.

Last week Google  finally released a more in-depth description within Google Webmaster Tools describing the reason(s) a manual web site penalty had been applied to a specific website. This news will now allow manually penalized site owners the necessary insight to correct the reasons for the penalty and apply to Google for reconsideration.

You can find this report within your Google Webmaster Tools account under “Search Traffic” > “Manual Actions”.

Here is an example Matt Cutts posted of the new penalty descriptor:
