Isn't SEO fun anymore?
Anyone reading the Google posts recently must think we're all mad!

Am I the only one enjoying the turbulence in the Google serps with all the promise it offers?

Every day i check my serps not knowing what to expect! I admit it's frustrating but some people could do well with taking a chill pill - especially dc watchers (I admit - I dabble)!

Isnt this part of makes seo fun and dare I say it, a specialist area? The more Google changes it - the more specialist it becomes - which makes our jobs much safer!

Is Google really taking the fun out of it for you? (All MFA site builders need not reply to this post - I know the answer!):)

My rankings haven't budged from the top slots... that is fun to watch as well.

It's not about SEO anymore, it's about building a strong website with respected content that is well linked from all corners of the topical web. In my opinion, the SEO fads are peanuts compared to the long-term value of a well connected and well respected site.

Is there more to your website than the homepage?

I'm sorry, but what is a MFA site? Oh, and while I wouldn't exactly say this rollercoaster we are on is fun. I will say I love a challenge, so I've gone on adding new content and trying to make my site stronger. One thing I noticed was that I never really noticed my return visitor counts until I lost most of my Google traffic on the 27th. I really appreciate those that keep coming back, so I'm building for them. At least they appreciate me! :)
Thanks!

Or maybe not, if clients no longer believe that you can deliver consistent results.

No, the fun part is reviewing the statistics. Watching positions in Google is so "old school". ;)

ROFLMAO

judging the majority of serps by what your own site/s achieve is the equilivant of wearing blinkers. You may well win the race but you are not seeing all the horses.

Maybe what's needed to make it interesting is a stock-ticker type of display. You'd store a list of keywords in the program options, and a marquee across the top of your screen would show:

"...blue widgets 12...pink widgets 6...fuzzy green widgets 23...blue widgets 300..."

how can any piece of software display a list or ranks when it would need to check 5,768 dc's with around 50% showing different positions...

no..to make it interesting we need to get back to the old days when you hired a link monkey per keyword and the following month you watched your rise through the ranks...now that was fun!
