But P1R and Tedster, why is one team from google asking people to have more ads on a page while the other is working an algo against it? How can they expect people to know that these two teams never sync up? Are they trying to prove that they are independent teams through this algo change?
It isn't good when one team sends mails and calls up people to increase the no. of ads, while another team wants to filter them out for looking like adsense farms.
Believe me or not, I know a few people who had been called by a team to up the no. of ads, just a few days before this update. They were told that their sites are good and they do a good job.
These innocent folks had just one ad block on the home page and they were asked to increase it to the max.
Within a couple of days the new algo rolled out and they got whacked.
what is going on within google? Is it really cold in google HQ?
