|Friday, March 11, 2011
SMX West wrapped up yesterday and there were some great discussions, many surrounding Google's recent Panda algorithm update. I was trying to follow along via Twitter where I compiled a list of some interesting thoughts via tweets. Here is a sample of what people were tweeting about over the past couple of days.
