Is GG the Alan Greenspan of WW?

Does the color of GG's tie affect SEO techniques?

Google Guy must type very carefully.
EVERYTHING he says is put under a microscope on these forums, and we all wait anxiously for hints that might be contained within his postings.

He's like Alan Greenspan of The FED. Stock brokers watch and see what color Greenspan's tie is as he walks into his meetings, and make decisions accordingly.

GG mentions "first 16 or 17" postings as being valid input in the recent "what is sj doing" thread, and now those "first 16 or 17" have become holy scripture, prophetic and cryptic!

He mentions "secret sauce" as a metaphor for the G algo, and now that term will be a new catchprase. (There have been only 10 occurrences to this point in the WW search for that term, but watch and see what happens with "secret sauce" now?)

We appreciate his input, all of us. But let's not put GG under this kind of pressure. Let's leave him a bit of breathing room!

(And GG, if you're listening, will you "sticky mail" me so that I can give you a list of my 30 most important key word terms that I need your help on? I would like top page, number one positon please. There's twenty bucks in it for ya direct into your PayPal account....no questions asked.)

Heh! Good analogy. I once saw a cartoon that showed Greenspan eating in a diner and a reporter was standing outside the window saying "That's right, Brian, he ordered white bread, NOT wheat.!" The TV in the corner of the diner had a wheat futures chart from some financial channel, it had been trending up but now showed a horrendous nose-dive in wheat futures. Same goes for GG here, I guess it's to be expected.

Handy then that he is quite senior in Google - rather than just someone who works in the mail department...

thats said - im sure he is here for a good reason - this forum provides feedback from the top guys in the SEO business - and he gets to see the results and opinions of many hours of analysis - new ideas, thoughts, improvments - as well as a market understanding...

im sure he feels it very valuable to being here - even if he has got to choose his words carefully!

<<he ordered white bread, NOT wheat.>>

Hey, white bread's made from wheat also.
But I digress.

The fact that he used a phrase some others of us had, which we stole from McDonald's, isn't significant. Unless of course Google starts calling their algo the "secret sauce" on their website. ;)

McDonalds uses "special sauce".

Of course, Google has served trillions and trillions, while Mickey D's is only in the billions.

I do not believe that GG is google worker.
But we can test easy, I executed GET request to
http://www-sj.google.com/$$$$$-here-secret-word.html
This generated 404 code, If google will post the secret word from error log, in this thread, I will believe and confirm.

GG = Alan Greenspan? Does that mean that several times a year CNBC will show him walking down the street to the tune of "Mr. Big Stuff"? Wouldn't that be a thing.

You ever notice that Alan Greenspan and GG never appear together or at the same time? ;)

HGP = His Googleness Posts ;)

What about presenting a WW sponsored tie to GoogleGuy? Imagine him dressing this tie short before an update ... "Well, boys, now you'll be roused up!"

I just came back from a quick lunch at Mc Donalds. Great sauce they have...then I read this thread.

There was a guy at the next table, secretly hoarding little packets of sauce..he wasn't wearing a tie...
