    Default Worst Google update, ever.

    Example of what the new algo does: https://www.google.com/search?source...e+money+online

    Check the number 1 site for a 800 K a month keyword. LOL

    We want people doing white hat search engine optimization (or even no search engine optimization at all) to be free to focus on creating amazing, compelling web sites. As always, we’ll keep our ears open for feedback on ways to iterate and improve our ranking algorithms toward that goal.

    Why would it? They said this was a major update, to give the newbs a free mind not to worry about SEO. They basically changed the game over night. Who the fuck knows what google looks at now since blank sites are showing up on major keywords.

    lol?
    lol i've been using that example all day long with people, but not cuz of the edus.

    The .edu's are always in viagra serps because people hack the .edu for the link juice and drop the link to push them to the top. 1 day @ #1 for viagra = $xx,xxx. The edu's stay in the serps for a while before its corrected.

    what I've been pointing out about how matt cunts sucks so much, is the number 1 result for viagra right now is fucking howstuffworks. the manufacturer meanwhile, is no where to be seen on page one.

    so far this update has been an epic failure. I know people who, if the change stays, will lose major major amounts of money. One guy i know, one of his sites makes him near 6 figs a year and the site vanished over night.

    i mean if ur site is fucked go for it but think about how many tens or hundreds of thousands of people are filling out that form right now. human wont see any of it most likely.

    its just like their bull shit 'reconsideration' request which works about 0.25% of the time.

    just another reason why SEO sucks
    far too many website depend on SERPS for revenue
    and these webmasters invest a lot of money and sucess is contingent on those rankings
    when the rankings die, you're fucked
    the nice thing about facebook is when your stuff dies its not a big deal since you din't invest much money ..i keep my costs almost $0 using cloud servers
    i quit seo a long time ago..no regrets about that
    good luck
    I make $1,000/day with facebook. Yea..i'm teh sh1t

    The agency also has been examining whether Google has rigged its results in a way that has prodded websites to pay more to promote their services through Google’s advertising network.

    None of these updates have effected my sites or rankings... I assume if your site is affected by them then it obviously wasnt in a very strong position. All my #1, #2, and #3 spots are still good ;D

    this really has nothing to do with knowledge of SEO.

    Some keywords have just been more effect by the update than others. I had a few sites that were in the top 3 of the first page and now they are on the top 3 of the 2nd or 3rd page.

    The problem is SEO for many people is an investment and gamble. They spend thousands on links and spamming software and then make little money. This is just about SEO in general, not this recent update. it's so saturated.

    if you are doing it right you almost always spend $0 on links and the "spamming software," if going bh, is a one time investment (except servers obv) that pays for itself within a month. It can still be done without said software and without much cost at all.

    My first money site cost a grand total of $110 to get to the point of $500+ /month. and that wasn't because i didnt have the money, its cuz i just didnt know what to spend it on at the time lol. Granted this was back before a bunch of updates went through but still. It's doable.

    but ya fuck white what.

    also fuck google. and penguins. and pandas. i used to fucking love those animals now i wanna kill a baby penguin

    My main site is slowly bouncing back.

    Used to be 6K

    After update:
    1st day - 300 uniques
    2nd day - 400
    3rd - 600+
    4th - 1300

    I hope this continues. Funny thing is its bouncing back under totally different keywords. IDGAF as long as it's relevant traffic (which is still is)

    interesting.

    i feel like they are going to slowly roll back this update. i just don't see them keeping this up.

    a lot of big sites got hit, don't know why though, they are getting all the page views and are full of ad's. could be because they're so light of content pulling from a db. i think you should slowly feed your content over a network of blogs related to each other on different c-class ip's. and treat the linking offsite seo optimization building as an experiment, each blog using different types of campaigns.

    I just got a new domain and was gonna get scrapebox, but anyone think I should reconsider because of the new google alg? Shitty free blogs are ranking and it seems not too much is known about it. Didn't wanna spend the money on scrapebox to end up blasting a bunch of links to my new site and end up having little to no SEO results. I looked at a couple sites that ranked for those keywords that were mentioned a few posts earlier and they were like some shitty free sites with a barley any backlinks. Any input as to whether i should hold off on scrapebox ? It seems that a lot of sites with tons of related backlinks, still dropped after the new alg?

    Scrapebox is the shit, the only problem is people don't know how to properly use it. Scrapebox isn't for just blasting AA blogs. Its also great for finding high pr blogs to comment on. Use your imagination, with each update google has done the quality and relevance of backlinks is becoming more and more important. Save those low quality links for your third tier on your link wheels.
