It's almost as if some adaptive alg is testing my pages by exposing them on certain days, then shutting them down if they don't rank well enough or get clicks.
If you analyze the complaints for the past few months this almost becomes a central theme whether it be in the natural results or just reading the Adsense threads. Basically a feast or famine schedule. Then again people have willingly fed Google so much private data it’s entirely doable. In fact Google has probably developed the most advanced system for generating income the world will ever witness. I wonder how much of that data is up for bids that nobody ever hears about. Except for the webmaster most searchers probably never realize the difference between many sites in the top 100 except for the branded ones.
after 9+ yrs with the first year being the slowest, we have not had a sale since 5/21.
we are done.
I find this post particularly disturbing in that it doesn’t sound like one of these greedy behemoth sites “bum rushing” the serps with thousands of pages to “get rich quick”. It shows me Google is hurting those who simply want to engage in business. It’s a very bad sign for the economy if you see a lot of these.
