I can't see why G would think this is a positive move
For the first time I would say Google is driving many sites into Adwords after April and May. Five competitors overnight surfaced in Adwords who have never advertised before because of top rankings and long tails that went untouched for years. It simply reaches the point with all the Google disruptions you do or go under. I did a keyword search last night on five keyword phrases that were always “buy” areas and all the top 10 results were info. Anything which led to an order form was gone. It’s a monopoly and they’re finally beginning to squeeze hard.
The multiple pages from a domain gets worse as you dig deeper. Plus many of the longtail search results now mimic the highly trafficked results. Reminds me of what they started in Adwords three years ago.
