@ptwylie — Right you are, Paul! Looks like we’re all going to be on the lookout, because it’s no longer SEO as we knew it. Design, appearance, navigation, etc, etc are all vital. I know a few online marketers that got hit big time in the first wave of the Panda-related changes — not funny at all.
Somehow, I feel these Google updates will continue to work advantageously for companies that put quality content and aesthetics well ahead of gimmicks. I hope most of us rank among the former and not the latter group.
On a personal level, I’m just now starting a revamp of my website as part of my plan to transition to Joomla (for my current site and prospective ones). I will be taking the Panda changes into consideration.
