I donīt get this an EMD- Update? What is their silly panda algo about? Find all domains with keyword but now the algo is forced not to find them?
I donīt mind if some EMD are gone, because most of them where very scary and spammy.
But this algo update shows how they have fritter with this panda algo.
diberry: Again, I'm not talking about terms I track for my sites, which are doing okay; I'm talking about a huge variety of topics I search regularly for my own personal edification.
This has pushed me to Blekko, which is still able to get me what I want, more or less - it's not as good as the others were until this month, but it's better than they are right now.
I would like to add, that i rarely trust the new #1 - #10 site when i search for information. What google presents is far away from good, reliable, deep content. It seems like the algo makes it all upsite down and with every quality update the handfull survived sites from previous updates going to get a hit, too.
diberry: Google might *possibly* be trying to confuse government probes by making the algo super-inscrutable, if that's even possible let alone plausible. It's the only potential explanation I can't immediately dismiss... but it wouldn't explain why Bing's just as bad. Unless Bing is copying everything Google does? They're not that stupid, are they?
That is my guess too in the last time. goog was forced to change their ranking system by EU guidelines not to push their own services. But somehow they did find a way to show competitors on site #1 but they donīt get traffic or the traffic does not convert. Goog can say, look at the serps they are #1, our services are #2. Somehow, i donīt know how....
I foregot to add:
My main site with self written descriptions own pictures ... has taken a huge hit again since tuesday. But my affiliate site with copy text, pictures... is back again.
