243: new post   Cleaning your Backlinks - Ideas and Suggestions

244: new post   Google's 52 Search Quality Highlights For April
One of the big changes for me was our latest algorithm improvement to help you find more high-quality sites. But, that's not all we've been up to. As you may recall, a couple months back we shared uncut video discussion of a spelling related change, and now that's launched as well (see "More spell corrections for long queries"). Other highlights include changes in indexing, spelling, sitelinks, sports scores features and more.

246: new post   Google WT Wants Links From Sponsored WordPress Themes Removed
Some 2+ years ago in throws of questionable wisdom I sponsored about 5 or 6 WordPress themes where the "Designed by" link in the footer gets replaced by a link to your site. They were nice looking and "relevant" themes, at least as far as the name and pictures used in design suggest. They were not used much initially and I did not think much of them until these "unnatural links" notices started flying a month ago.

247: new post   ALERT: The Google Anti-SEO Update
In the next few days, we're launching an important algorithm change targeted at webspam. The change will decrease rankings for sites that we believe are violating Google's existing quality guidelines.[br][br]While we can't divulge specific signals because we don't want to give people a way to game our search results and worsen the experience for users, our advice for webmasters is to focus on creating high quality sites that create a good user experience and employ white hat SEO methods instead of engaging in aggressive webspam tactics.

257: new post   Broken Links Send Site Quality Signals And May Affect Rankings
In doing some research for a new article, I recently came across a 12-year-old website that has quite a few broken external links, especially on its "links" page. Evidently this site hasn't been updated in a long time and nobody has bothered to check for broken links.

We are trying to level the playing field a bit. All those people doing, for lack of a better word, over optimization or overly SEO - versus those making great content and great site."

264: new post   Google Explains How You Can Effectively Use a Free Hosting Service
"If a free hosting service begins to show patterns of spam, we make a strong effort to be granular and tackle only spammy pages or sites. However, in some cases, when the spammers have pretty much taken over the free web hosting service or a large fraction of the service, we may be forced to take more decisive steps to protect our users and remove the entire free web hosting service from our search results."

266: new post   How I Make Sense of Google's Complex Algorithm
In the past, we all knew that search engines were just a bit more complicated than they appeared, but we created mental models that did a pretty good job explaining the SERPs and we let it go at that... for a long long time. I like to think of those old models as the "punch list" approach - here's all the factors we think Google measures and combines into their recipe - let's make sure we hit each one.[br][br]Then, slowly but surely, something shifted. Keywords plus backlnks could no longer explain the rankings we started to notice. What on earth is going on?

Within a week, I had given notice to all of my 10 employees that they were about to lose their jobs. The only ones left were me and my wife.[br][br]

270: new post   Google Announces 40 New Algorithm Changes For February
"Link evaluation. We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page. We have changed the way in which we evaluate links; in particular, we are turning off a method of link analysis that we used for several years. We often rearchitect or turn off parts of our scoring in order to keep our system maintainable, clean and understandable."
