  1. It won't really have any impact on Google. The only thing his leave has impacted is Google's communication with the public. He had a tough job, but I think he was always as honest and helpful as he could be. Since his leave, the closest thing we have had to a replacement is John and he is... less helpful and knowledgeable.
  2. Snapchat is not going to do anything for back linking. Google doesn't crawl Snapchat.
  3. Last week Matt Cutts made his leave from Google permanent and resigned. He will be staying on to work with the US Dgital Service. https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/join-the-us-digital-service/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+mattcutts%2FuJBW+(Matt+Cutts%3A+Gadgets%2C+Google%2C+and+SEO)
  4. Sorry, but it is always a little suspect when a marketing agency is asking how to market. Perhaps try asking a more thoughtful question talking about what you have done and what the results have been. Or maybe what kind of audience you are trying to reach.
  5. Mostly it is about authority. They have a lot of decent links. Looks like they are doing a good bit of the HARO type of outreach to get featured in articles. I also see some footer links on client sites, some of which are pretty strong sites. Did not dig into it much further than that.
  6. Success rate varies with the niche. Response rate is generally anywhere from 4-8% for me. Response rate from reaching out on social media is usually double that or more. If I get a response, most of the time I end up with an opportunity for a link.
  7. For me, it depends on the type of search I'm doing. For something like an autoresponder, I wouldn't think of changing it. The kids are into a popular card/board game. If I do a search for the best decks to use for the game (you can create your own decks out of the available cards) I might change the search time frame then to get more recent results. If I am looking for a review of a product, I might tweak it to get more recent reviews. Other than that, I really don't mess with it.
  8. Have you tried contacting vowels.co.in? Their site says they do social media marketing. Maybe they can help you?
  9. You just need one of these... http://levostore.com/products/levo-g1-table-clamp?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&variant=12006742017&gclid=Cj0KEQiAh4fEBRCZhriIjLfArrQBEiQArzzDAZ_eQffhh6_bdWnJnfmPNWRlCCLSO1a6Tucn6-Y_yQ4aAvD28P8HAQ
  10. It often takes Search Console a long time to update data. If you fixed the errors, mark them as fixed. I wouldn't worry about it any further.
  11. So that big update that happened back on the 10th... https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/08/helping-users-easily-access-content-on.html I knew this was going to happen... nothing. I didn't bother tracking this one like I did with Mobilegeddon, but I have been following a few people who are tracking a bunch of mobile sites using these ads. So far, no movement. None at all. It is possible that the update is still rolling out and will take a little time, but I doubt it. I think it is more like Mobilegeddon, HTTPS being a ranking signal, the emphasis on site speed, etc. Google is just scaring people into acting the way they want them to act.
  12. Okay, but why did you use it and for what benefit?
  13. It's not a ranking. Craigslist ads just put the latest ad at the top of the list.
  14. So I was checking out if any of my local competitors are advertising in Craigslist and what categories they might be using. One category is 'creative services'. I was curious what that might cover, so I checked it out. Wasn't expecting this at the top of the list, but it is creative.
  15. No. You misunderstand what they are doing. The stock sites are not posting the material without permission. These companies are putting the images on the stock photo sites themselves. Then later they pull them off and go after anyone using them demanding proof that they were obtained legally. The stock photo sites are not doing anything wrong.
