Barry Schwartz' keynote at the SEMSEO 2012 conference on June 15th in Hannover presented interesting insights to the history of all major Google algorithm updates since 2001, Barry counting 16 of them, including the most recent ones, "Panda" and "Penguin". If you ask me, Barry's understanding of how Google work, their scope and where they're going is as deep and near as you could get from outside. Great stuff.

The keynote also included a direct warning to German SEOs from Matt Cutts regarding wide-spread blackhat tactics in Germany and possible pending direct action against it.

Thanks again, Barry, for having been our guest :-)

Here's a couple of pictures showing the event, it's in German, but well, pics talk for themselves:

Hoot!

Aled Hughes.  He succeeded me as Marketing Director at Comparex Ltd in the UK in about 1987.  We stayed in touch, and he wound up as European Marketing VP at Encore Systems in Florida.

We were chatting (transatlantic) one day and I asked - since he was VP of European Marketing - why he hadn't based his office in Europe somewhere.

There was a fairly long pause.

Then a calm and measured response: "Phil - have you ever SEEN beach volleyball?"

Then we went to the party in the Hanoverian PubCon zoo.  The way we had to pass a radschlagenden peacock. Kind of reminded me of Matt Cutts ... 


Damn good comment, even if Google can't fully/properly translate it.
