Newsletter: October 2015

A copy of our subscriber newsletter from October 2015.

October has been Pubcon month: Ninjas spoke at the biggest marketing conference, listened to Google representatives and met many smart people. A few takeaways: Google authorship markup is not completely useless (Google may still use it one day), so no need to get rid of it; Panda update is still rolling, so keep an eye on your traffic stats; and Penguin update is coming soon but it may still be not too late to get things fixed to get ready for it!

Speaking of the upcoming Penguin update, please let us know if you are worried: Complete this 1-minute survey and get a free Penguin white paper we are working on!
