Happy Thanksgiving from Google and Bing

Written by Kurt Steinbrueck

thanksgiving-largeSometimes it seems that Google and Bing’s sole purpose is to mess with website owners, constantly changing how they do search and keeping us all on our toes.  Well, keeping with the holiday spirit, Google and Bing have delivered something this month for which we can all be thankful.  No major updates.

Sure, there were still updates, we’ll never get off completely scott free, but there wasn’t anything that rocked the search world and scattered everyone’s rankings.

There are some nice updates this month that are actually quite helpful for webmasters.  I’ll tell you all about it in this month’s SEO update.

“Happy Thanksgiving!  It’s Kurt Steinbrueck with, and I’m here with this month’s SEO update…” Click here for a full transcript.
