Good morning all! Today is a sad day for many website owners that have been ranking solely on the power of EMD (exact match domains). Some of the sites that have been affected by the Google EMD algorithm update today have been those that don’t have a lot of unique, original, high quality content or appear to be somewhat spammy. After looking at my analytics today, I did notice a change in my own ranking on a couple of my sites, particularly those that do have an exact match in the domain name.

TED: Ideas worth spreading

Melinda Gates and Bill Gates Why giving away our wealth has been the most satisfying thing we've done In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates—then engaged—took a walk on a beach in Zanzibar, and made a bold decision on how they would make sure that their wealth from Microsoft went back into society. In a conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as about their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their wealth away.
