With the search engine giant set to unveil a new Penguin update in the next few months, webmasters are expecting a significant shift and the increasing marginalisation of existing SEO practices.
While some are preparing for the worst, however, others have sought to obtain a more balanced perspective on the proposed developments.

The term “human resources” can mean very different things depending on its context.
At large, multi-national corporations, dozens of individuals might work in HR to keep the corporate machine moving.
