Pages in English V The Rest
is G Anglo-centric?

 7:31 pm on Nov 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

As a matter of interest, are new algos /filters implemented only on English language pages, or do they percolate throughout the G network?
I ask as most non-English SEO forums are hardly covering this "update/dance" at all.

From what I saw it hit the german serps with a considerable delay, but it did hit us... ;)

Our Spanish and French colleagues are sharing our pain now..........

german serps are affected, but i believe in a different way, for example the so called stemming was something i could not find for german words.

To start with, it only hurted my english pages,
but now as well the spanish and swedish pages,
before we was nº 1 searching for only the name of the city in the swedish google, now my index page don´t even apear searching for the city in swedish, but another page of mine, with only information about that city is on 4th place................... thats only a page with aditional information.............

My optimized English pages gone, but the Chinese pages rise to the top. Before the Florida update, I could not find my ranks for the Chinese pages. However, they gave me a surprise after the dance. I never made any change on them.

Helen, you are saying you are affected for a one word search, just a cityname?

No all words are afected, this is very strange,
before swedish web was so well positioned, was enogh only writing name of the city (there aren´t so much sites in swedish) and now the swedish index don´t come up at all. Now on first side in google, 5th position an local information page comes up.

And even stranger in the english, I had been on top searching for marbella rentals for 8 months, only looking for marbella, position was very bad. And now only searching for english sites word marbella I am better positioned than looking for marbella rentals.

something related index/words,,,.........

I have sites which were in English and French targeted towards real estate. At first only the English sites were affected, soon afterward the French translations were affected. The term "immobilier" French for real estate is now dominated by directories.

<so called stemming was something i could not find for german words.

I have seen word stemming for at least one German SERP but definitely not for all.
