Does it take time for serps to improve or I should lose hope?
Does it worth it to achieve PR5, PR6 or PR7 when people find you in serps by a five words keyword?
Who said that websites that have PR4 get around 300 hit/day and PR6 websites get around 3000 hit/day and so on?
Hoax! My PR5 website barely gets 100 hit/day while another PR5 website gets 17000 hit/day!
And yes, I am very newbie regarding SEO world if you were wondering.
It will be cosmic justice if some Google employees find it hard to make mortgage payments around x-mas time next year.
There seems to be a growing tide of anti-Google sentiment spreading fast. Could they have forgotten the way AV went down?
what was built by word of mouth can be destroyed by word of mouth
google built their reputation by being the favoured search engine of techies, if they are perceived as 2nd best by the opinion formers, users will surely migrate.

2) It's best to do one thing really, really well.
Google does search. Google does not do horoscopes, financial advice or chat. With 50 Ph.D.s and the largest research group in the world focused exclusively on solving search problems, Google knows what it does well and how it could be done better
froogle, answers, print, deskbar, news, IPO
are their eyes off the search engine ball? do they do search well anymore? could they do search better?

It was rightly #1 on the topic term until last weekend when it fell off the first page. Yesterday it disappeared altogether. It is still #1 on every other search engine. It has had no SEO done on it whatsoever.
How can that be right? If it was most relevant last week, how can it not be relevant at all this week?
Yes, I too changed my default search last week. Not to MSN though. I prefer Alta Vista. I know others are following suit.
I'm so annoyed about it that I've also put a page on the site of recommended search engines. Until Google starts to rank sites that are relevant, it won't be appearing there. I've put a note to this effect as well.
The only comfort for me is that so many others are in the same boat and so many other have the same view.
I can't bring myself to recommend MSN
Sabai, can I ask why? (I take this is just because it is M1crosoft?)
The results seem relevant enough on MSN and I am not seeing much spam at all in the results I watch. All MSN needs IMO is a spelling correcting facility, a "cached" check, a decent toolbar, and some sort of PageRank related algo and I will be a very happy punter!
I am already telling potential SEO clients that we are no longer optimising for google and now use MSN as a tool to demonstrate our SEO abilities. I do not know if this is what Google want from SEO's and to be completley honest, right now I do not care.
Word will spread >> fast!
Wow, I search and search and cant find anything relevent. GOOGLE OFFICIALLY SUCKS NOW. Not one of the top ten is even remotely close to being an adult web design company. Anyone know any good search engines?

I think the serps are pretty bad, but I'm not ready to give up on Google just yet. Google's been good to me over the years and the least I can do is give them a little latitude to get their ducks in a row.
I see you finally have realized how things are. You have added your biological and technological distinctiveness to the collective consciousness of Microsoft, and have adapted to service them. Resistance is futile.
