Level 1 - the current 'report a specific spammer' - where the focus is on reporting a specific (usually competitor) url.
Level 2 - a higher level, formalised programme leveraging the skills of SEO professionals - where the focus is on reporting 'spam methods' - with an aim of improving the filters and improving the results.
Uhm - I do not work for Yahoo, ATW or the KGB ;-)
Lots of good questions. It would be a dissappointment to get only top 10 answers :(
"I'm searching for information on..."
(no e-commerce pages)
"I'm shopping for..."?
(e-commerce pages only)
For example, the many web sites who don't use the words that rely on vague marketing slogans ("robust solutions to the everyday needs of the consumer"), delivered with flash content and heavy graphics, and implemented in a Communication Arts magazine marketing-based design, instead of a search-centric design.
Your question about continual updates was already addressed by GoogleGuy.
<<Googleguy's use of the words "gradually" and "overtime" implied to a number of people a slow, continual update of backlinks. Not just one dump of new backlinks 6 weeks later (i.e., a regular monthly update). Besides, if Inktomi and Alltheweb are able to do continual updates, who is to say Google can't (technologically-speaking)? >>
<<In time, I do think things will be more gradual. However, we're still in the transition period for this system, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a traditional update for a little while longer. Hope that helps. <<
Will there come a time that Google results again will be consistent from search to search in between periodic updates, or will results remain "dynamic" as an intended outcome of changes taking place now?
