SMX West 2011: Tweet Topics
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.

SMX West Tweet Topics

@reelseo: YouTube search makes about 1/4 of Google's total search volume #smx

@MoCR521: 65% of Facebook users only access the FB when not at work or school - typically early morning or evening @tydowning #smx

@dannysullivan 44% searches on google have more than 3 words

@dannysullivan: 20% of Google queries not seen before in past 3 months #SMX

RT @adCenter 3 SEO takeaways for big sites: fast site speed, rel canonical works, and avoid pagination issues.

RT @dannysullivan: 64% of Google searches have pages without exact matches to all query terms

RT @dannysullivan: Mike Cassidy of @Google says social connections to you can boost rankings if friends make or share pages #SMX

spam fighters for Google give warnings to those registered with webmaster tools #SMX

 @mattcutts Today we're adding the ability to block sites directly to Google's search results: http://goo.gl/bLPOq Yay! #SMX

Rich @blekko announces they have blocked 1.1M sites for spam. Good work. #smx

@mattcutts RE: the Panda/Farmer update: "No algorithm is 100%." Absolutely true. Create great content & you should be OK. #smx

@Mattcutts comment: Panda update is algo change only. No manual action involved.

"Ajax is good for cleaning your toilet", not SEO says @gregboser at #smx

@AlanBleiweiss: Starting this week Google Algo may give boost 2 links that have been tweeted vs those w/o tweets #Quote #MattCutts #SMX

"The Klingons never showed up with good intent" (Bing on white hat cloaking) #smx

Does traffic help rankings? @mattcutts says no #SMX

"If you can't do a 301 use rel canonical" #SMX

@mattcutts said Google will be looking at ways to push up original content (vs scrapers) this year, as well as the Panda/Farmer topics.

Google trying to help websites/blogs receive credit when they create original content that is eventually duplicated on the web

Some interesting thoughts from the folks who attended SMX West down in San Jose.  Lisa Barone of Outspoken Media has had some tremendous coverage via live blogging various sessions including one on The Spam Police.
