Small Sites Can Grow, Vic Gundotra Departs +, New Twitter Look, Speedlink 17:2014

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great and productive week. This week on Google Webmaster Help, a very interesting question came up for Matt Cutts to respond. The question was…

How can smaller sites with superior content ever rank over sites with superior traffic? It’s a vicious circle: A regional or national brick-and-mortar brand has higher traffic, leads to a higher rank, which leads to higher traffic, ad infinitum.

Essentially, Matt says “start small” to “grow big” by providing superior content. Wow! Did any of you knew that? I think Rand already knew.

Vic Gundotra Departs Google+

Also this week, Vic Gundotra, the “father” of Google+, announced that he is leaving Google after eight years with the company. +Ana Hoffman shared a post that covers very well this “breaking news”.

 

How about you? What do you think about this announcement, or what do you think it means?

Twitter Rolls Out New Profile Look

And finally, the “big news” from Twitter. They just rolled out the new twitter profile look for everyone.

If you don’t have the new look yet, you can go here and force Twitter do change your look.

And as usual, in no particular order:

Content Creation & Marketing/SEO and Search

Social/Small Business Bites

More from around the web…

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
