RankBrain is a machine learning (AI) algorithm that Google uses to sort the search results. It also helps Google process and understand search queries.

So: what makes RankBrain different?

Before RankBrain, 100% of Google’s algorithm was hand-coded. 

In short, RankBrain tweaks the algorithm on its own.

Depending on the keyword, RankBrain will increase or decrease the importance of backlinks, content freshness, content length, domain authority etc.

Then, it looks at how Google searchers interact with the new search results. If users like the new algorithm better, it stays. If not, RankBrain rolls back the old algorithm.

It has been a while since we last talked or written about trailing slashes in your URLs and how it may or may not impact your rankings with Google. But hey, since Google's John Mueller brought it up both on Google+ and Twitter, let's get into it again.
In short, John explains that it isn't how Google handles the trailing slash for the most part, instead it is how servers treat them by default. That being said, John Mueller explained "the slash after a hostname or domain name is irrelevant, you can use it or not when referring to the URL, it ends up being the same thing." "However, a slash anywhere else is a significant part of the URL and will change the URL if it's there or not," he added.
He even made this nifty chart to try to explain it better:
He even posted this example of how the Google robots.txt file at works fine but 404s.
John explained, as I said above, "this is not SEO-specific, but just how websites work."

Google Penguin 3.0 Update

Posted by Piyush On 10:58:00 PM
“For many webmasters, major algorithm updates like Panda and Penguin turned their world upside down, but columnist Aaron Friedman believes the days of big upsets may well be over.” …… Search Engine Land

There are many weeks after Penguin 3.0, but nothing to seem big changes over all. Google also confirmed that not more than 1% impact in search results.

Remember the panda and penguin comes first they shook up all search engine result in Google. There are lots of spams and trashes are available those time.

The main motive of panda and penguin is to filter out spam from SERP. After any updates some sites goes up and some lose their SERP. Google targeted those who play unfair game and make unnatural links. Google makes great shake up, with those sites who get position through hard work. But these sites never entitled for the result, they are there because of their suspicious behavior.

Therefore when goes to recover from penguin they never talk to artificial links, but if they do again the penguin is right for them. And of course the result they lose the value of all their bad links or they just drop to their rightful place in the SERPs.


But now it is seem to be pointing to ending. From last few years we are with panda and penguin, we spend time to know about them, and it should be cleared that old way of working don’t work anymore.

The old linking plan and old rubbish content are not now part of valuable strategy and you don’t get result that you looking for. Link-building is nothing more than marketing. Panda and penguin forced us to realize that not work as to deal with links in the first place.

Now create quality content. Earn relevant and solid kinks because of the amazing content you build. Make things fresh and sure with quality, useful and informative content.

Rest is fine stop thinking about new algorithms. Unless you are a spammer.

Google Panda is a change to Google's list items standing calculation that was initially discharged in February 2011. The change expected to bring down the rank of "low-quality locales" or "dainty destinations", and return higher-quality locales close to the highest point of the indexed lists. CNET reported a surge in the rankings of news sites and long range informal communication locales, and a drop in rankings for destinations holding a lot of publicizing. This change allegedly influenced the rankings of very nearly 12 percent of all list items. Not long after the Panda rollout, numerous sites, incorporating Google's webmaster gathering, got loaded with protests of scrapers/copyright infringers showing signs of improvement rankings than destinations with unique content. At one focus, Google openly wanted information focuses. to help catch scrubbers better. Google's Panda has appropriated numerous overhauls since the definitive rollout in February 2011, and the impact went worldwide in April 2011. To help influenced distributers, Google distributed a warning on its site, accordingly giving some bearing for self-assessment of a site's quality. Google has furnished a rundown of 23 visual cues on its website noting the inquiry of "What considers a high caliber webpage?" that should help webmasters "venture into Google's outlook".
