Google Hummingbird & Penguin 2.1 PLUS 2 Free Guides

Hi All,

Please accept my apology for going AWOL over the summer. There's no warning label on having kids unfortunately and they got my full attention this past summer.

With Fall here, we have a lot to go catch up, including last Friday's Google Penguin 2.1 Update and the Hummingbird Update from a few weeks back.

What are your thoughts on doing this next event via GoToWebinar? The last few events we had maxed the capacity of the room as I recall and we started having to limit RSVPs. Hangouts are also an option, but visible attendees are limited to 10 as I recall, where GTW doesn't have a limit.

I'd also like to meet in person soon to kick off those website clinics we were discussing before summer, but I'm pretty sure we need a new venue since DMC isn't open Saturdays any longer.

Please email me at [masked] with your thoughts and feedback.

By the way, I knocked out two new SEO Guides over the summer. The first is a free local marketing guide, the other is my outreach guide and templates we'll be selling for $249 in a few weeks. Of course you get both for being part of of this group - you need only RSVP the next event. :)

Miss you guys - and hope to see you in a couple weeks!

Best,
Steve

    For the Sat. morning one there was some snacks that Steve brought. Danish if I remember correctly. I would not plan on there being food there.

    Another option for the future is:

    Cocos
    12032 Harbor Blvd
    Garden Grove

    Another group I belong too has meetings there, and there is no minimum charge.

    Hi! Have you tried this restaurant that has a meeting room that they don't charge for?

      They also said Wed 10/30 is available from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm at no cost. The other days of the week have a $500, $1000, or $2000 dinning minimum. There is NO dinning minimum for tomorrow Tuesday or the next day Wednesday. They have a ceiling projector that hooks up a pc laptop only with a usb cord. If you use an Mac Book than bring your own projector. They are awesome people with delicious food! :0)

      October 28, 2013

    • Linda

      Hi Steve! I just left you a voice mail about the meeting room availability. You can reach me at[masked] too.

  • Steve W.

    Looks like someone snuck in and grabbed every open slot for IRWD community room for the next two weeks 5pm - 10pm. #shucks Any other suggestions for a venue anyone? We have a $200 budget at this point if everyone's good on the $10/pp.

    October 27, 2013

    • Linda

      Hi Steve! Can you call me please ? [masked] thanks

      October 28, 2013

  • Michael N.

    Hi Steve and Greg. Just checking in on the location update - I'm happy to provide the $10 fee on this one.
    Did we lock-in the IRWD location? If so, can you provide the details?

    Thanks!
    Mike

  • GregS

    Steve, I just checked. The IRWD community room is currently open. If we don't collect $$ except to help cover coffee costs I think the group would be OK. May not work long term, but would give a meeting place for October. Holds 50 easy. I have screen, projector, etc. if needed.

    "The Pearl Harbor of algorithm updates" [Really?]
    Carl Weiss
    Guest Blogger- Jacksonville Business Journal
    "Worst of all for many website owners was the fact that Hummingbird was launched as a kind of sneak attack, with Google dropping the bomb without warning which had the effect of taking many website owners by surprise."

    October 23, 2013

    • Steve W.

      In all fairness, Matt Cutts did warn us about big summer updates in May. I honestly don't have a single client affected by Hummingbird and like finding what I was really searching for rather than some piece of copy optimized for my exact query.

      October 24, 2013

    • Steve W.

      Maybe it's just me?

      October 24, 2013

  • Steve W.

    Sounds great to me. We have 11 RSVP's so far. $10/each = $110, think that will cover it?
