I ran across this on Search Engine Land - I am kinda over infographics, but this one is pretty kick ass:
"One year ago, Google launched its “Panda Update” designed to filter low quality or “thin” content from its top search results.
Below, our infographic produced in conjunction with BlueGlass
covers how Panda works, what it impacted and the various updates from
Panda 1.0 through Panda 3.2 that have happened along the way.
After the infographic, you’ll also find more information about the
Panda Update ranging from in-depth analysis of how it works, “winners
and losers” and well as recovery tips."

Google Docs—the beloved tool —has updated its spell checker! Instead of relying on a fixed dictionary. This update has a few big advantages over traditional spell checkers:
- Suggestions are contextual. For example, the spell checker is now smart enough to know what you mean if you type “Icland is an icland.”
2.Contextual suggestions are made even if the misspelled word is in the dictionary. If you write “Let’s meat tomorrow morning for coffee” you’ll see a suggestion to change “meat” to “meet."
3.Suggestions are constantly evolving. As Google crawls the web, we see new words, and if those new words become popular enough they’ll automatically be included in our spell checker—even pop culture terms, like Skrillex.
For now it's only available in English but they are working to bring other languages on board soon!
Happy Spell checking!
