Onepoint thanks! Same here never search on the uk never been there. I'm going skiing this winter in nh and was looking for places to stay in Manchester. I typed that and lodging and got Manchester England sites? Relevancy gone haywire.
Tedster the biggest change I see in the last 8 days which seems to be do
Dying off is a presentation change. Algo confusion on what is a product vs informational searches so they take the shotgun approach. The best example being the product 12345 search returning some of all but not nailing any of it.
IMO last year the product and part would have returned all good results. Exact matching is bad for adwords so it's gone.
Instead of 100 advertisers after 30 click keywords at 50 cents they've removed those organic results. When we try to buy them it says not enough clicks so we are forced to buy category keyword ads at triple the rate and competiton. Sweet anti-business move on the part of google. Artificially destroy niches to inflate ad earnings.
