|i think you are saying the opposite of what Bill had actually explained in the comments to that question. Usage stats of the nature explained in the patent (freq. of visits and unique visitors) will help newer pages on newer topics to compete on a level footing with the established sites. |
Newer sites with a gazillion all of the sudden links /mentions he said, assuming he read it right. But that's not new, new but popular sites have managed to go on top almost within a day for a long time. And we're seeing BRANDS on top.
About the exact day: it probably depended on the legal team. Doesn't mean panda doesn't use this or part of this but the date itself might be a coincidence. We also know that Google doesn't use all their patents.
Of note is that Google stopped support for the toolbar on Firefox5+, so whatever they were getting from them doesn't matter now. They may also be supporting Chrome but who knows since they may lose some searches from people searching directly from the toolbar.
The "experts" said Panda will not be easy since it didn't happen for a long time. During the first month everyone was full of optimism :). Google was don't try one thing, focus on users...blah blah...
|Why Google or Google experts have said confidently there will be no quick fixes. |
Or links during the time they were the only solution. It's a possibility, that's all I'm saying.
|There can only be two reasons for that. |
1) Page history 2) usage stats.
Lapizuli, I follow what you say that isn't dynamic. You classify the page once but it may have changed.
Just re-read this. Doesn't this mean we can buy traffic to rank higher? Even if they mean traffic is a partial boost, as long as it's used you can buy your way out this. And then you have a death spiral scenario. Does anyone have a link on where to buy traffic from ;)
|Under a usage information-based ranking approach, the pages might be ranked differently. |
Looking just at a raw visit frequency, the pages might be organized into the following order: first page (40 visits), second page (30 visits), and third page (4 visits).
If those raw visit frequency numbers are refined to filter out automated agents and to assign double weight to visits from Germany, the order of the pages might change to: second page (effectively 40 visits, since the 10 from Germany count double), first page (effectively 25 visits after filtering out the 15 visits from automated agents), and the third page (effectively 4 visits).
The usage data might be combined with either or both the IR scores and the link scores.
