Get it right the first time.
Like sevencubed I believe that the majority of SEO should be done on page
Those have always been the best ways..
I think that certain changes would trigger a use of the results scrambler.
Title changes, heading mods, or anything on a spam list might trigger the patent, while copy changes etc would not, as they are part of "business as usual".
One thing this patent will do is to teach us to get it right the first time as it is only changes that trigger. Nothing was said about new pages.
Agreed..with the caveat that some of us had already noticed for some considerable time, prior to the patent being mentioned by Bill, that "changes" had "unusual results"..I watched others ..I don't change mine.."measure twice cut once"..or better .stone sculpture is a good discipline, you can't change a stone sculpture..you have to think long and hard about it..and get it right..first time..
Btw..companies only usually patent ( and thus bring into the light of day and to the attention of competitors ) things that they have hypothesised would work, and then tested, and then retested, have proved worth patenting..then they patent them..
Panda too , whilst not being announced as a patent in the same way..was in evidence at least 6 months in "testing" mode ..before it officially ran for the first time ..like wise penguin , ran in test mode for some time(s) , small scale testing, before it was "announced"..
But one has to be looking at serps in odd areas and at odd times and in odd ways to catch these things , focusing on only one's immediate niche(s) is too narrow a view, to see much of the testing, and the things that G later announces it has done, in action, prior to their announcements..
