Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
We're in the middle of Part 2 of a 3 part update. the third part may or may not start next wednesday according to Google bloke.
Sure their adwords revenues are going up... their business is growing at a fantastic rate. To demonstrate a connection like the one suggested you would actually have to show that the people who got dropped spent less on adwords than those who got to stay, and that those who got dropped then increased adwords revenues in order to contribute to Google's growth.
Did their number of over all clients increase at such a phenomenal rate? ..or did many spend more revenue ..over more target words ..?
Yes the adwords market overall is growing ..but the money in the advertising machine is not getting significantly greater ..just shuffling around from print to screen ..
Speculation on my part ..no ..jaded experience speaking ..yes .:)
I just looked at the first 20 results and there were only 3 relevant sites. The rest were only blog spamms, redirects or pages from spammed blogs...
Will Google ever make some light on pharmaceuticals. There are quite a few quality and relevant sites that are lost in that jungle... Anyone who works in this sector can confirm this.
Now, here is one for you all about SEO, and its merits! Take a look at the site www.tired.com . Then take a look at the page rank and source code, and tell me what SEO is!
nicest minimalist landing page I ever saw ..Uber doorway!#1 from 53 million ..

I'm not asking you to confirm if that will cause a penalty, but please answer if "remove" means that those pages will not be looked at when doing the algo calculations?
Subscribe to the Better Business Bureau online certification program or a similar "Trust-e" certification program and place their logo on your home page with a link back to their site.
Would this demonstrate to Google that a site is not spamming?
According to Googles own page rank explanation, it does!
They say at [google.com...] " Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines all aspects of the page's content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it's a good match for your query."
I just did as you instructed and filed a "Dissatisfied? Help us improve" report with the subject Jagger2, GoogleGuy and my WebmasterWorld nick.
Our rankings tanked on October 16th and we are completely white hat with tons of industry related content (update daily).
Your help would be *greatly* appreciated.

You can even read the original papers on it.
I highly recommend this!
The *importance* of a page (PR) does *not* have to do with the text on the page...
The *relevance* of a page has everything to do with the text on the page...
I have seen BLANK PR4 pages, because they were linked to by high PR pages (on accident), but those pages did not show in the results... It was important, but not relevant to anything.
PR has nothing to do with the content of a page, and everything to do with links.

Hotel/travel SERPs still not good.
We run a small destination site and obviously offer ones of the best deals on the Web. However, Google results consist of only large booking sites only - there are approx. 30 travel/hotel sites changing their spots and nothing else.
Each of these sites have auto-generated pages. Each page with the same keyword stuffed text such as:
"enjoy up to 70% discounts on hotels in <small destination>. We have xx hotels here ..."
I am sure all of us know what I am talking about.
Of course, quality sites offering good information and better choice for the buyer have been kicked to pages 4-8 or even further.
Same happened to us on October 16, 2005 as well.
Is it going to be altered with Jagger3 or does Google consider such SERPs right ones?
Seems like to be #1, you should make a free hit counter, make everyone who uses it link to a site you want to rank #1 and voila, in a few weeks you are there! Seems to work like a charm for tons of sites ranking #1 now.
I've reported the sites I've seen doing this, but if this report is followed the same way as the others I've done, I have a feeling the site will actually improve in rankings afterwards.
Based on what I'm seeing, the #1 factor in getting ranked now is quantity of BL's (over quality). Quality has been thrown out the window.
I agree, and I also think the number of internal BL's is playing a much bigger role accounting for the 50K + page sites wiping out the smaller more focused niche sites.

Girish, no, think about it, if this would increase your trust rank, then all the seos would start creating certified sites, once they figured out what the minimum standards to get certification were.
Trust rank can't be bought, not easily, although it can with some work be manufactored. Google wants one and only one arbitrator of trust rank: google. That's why there is no trustrank bar, that's why they don't show you backlinks anymore, and that's why the tools don't work anymore in any meaningful way.
The object was always ..make 2 guys lots o' money ..and now it is make the companies shareholders lots o' money..
Just like newspapers are there to sell ad space ..not to provide news or info ..
But one thing remains constant, the serps have to be what the searches are looking for, if the results aren't there, the eyeballs aren't there, and the income goes away. Google knows this, that's what will keep their searches quality.
