Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
On the search for 'pioneer widgets' my article is usually first but today when I checked in on 22.214.171.124 the article is now third. Interestingly the page ahead of my page has (Pioneer widgets Website Coming Soon!) at the
top then a couple of paragraphs about a widget shop with the words 'pioneer widgets' near the top and the bottom.
The first thing that occurred to me is that having the key words next to each other in the title must be of greater importance now. My title is 'Pioneer widgetingpeople & Their Widgets'.
The other thing I'm noticing is that a short page with the search phrase near the bottom and top doesn't need much PR to rate well. Interesting. Maybe short introductions to article pages with all these features will do
better. Then it would link to the full article. Just a thought but perhaps things will be completely different when this update is over.
The worrisome thing about this is that writing the short blurb and never bothering with the real article would do just as well. I can just see the spammers jumping in to take advantage of that!
Hopefully GG and others from Google have noticed this.
BTW I don't care if my page is first or third. People will find it either way. But I will care when 10 automated spammy sites are ahead of my page.
Anyone else notice this?
Anyone see their allinanchor working and correlating to SERPS on 126.96.36.199?
I don't know of many things that look good before they are completed, hopefully this hold true and we start seeing better results.

The text is so small, even if it wasn't white on white, there would be no way to read it.
Goog job Google! I'm sure your users will love finding sites that have 0% to do with what they are searching for!
Why didn't I think of just putting tons of tiny hidden text that has nothing to do with my site?
I canīt access the first part of Jagger update thread. Have stickied both Brett and tedster about it.
However, as a good GoogleGuyologist I have saved om my PC the latest 2 messages of GoogleGuy regarding Jagger Update and Iīm posting them here for the benifit of further discussion :-)

GG - weather report? Is "Jagger III, the Canonical" brewing yet?
Last week I said that Jagger3 would hopefully be visible this week, possibly as early as Wednesday. Jagger3 is looking good internally, so I still have hope for last week's weather report to hold true. If something changes, I'll post. I have a hunch which data center it will show at first, but there's no point in telling people to look at it now--the results are the still the same at that data center for the time being.

Just to let people know, Jagger3 will have some canonicalization changes, but more importantly it's the base that I expect us to build on going forward. Once Jagger3 is visible, folks can send us Jagger3-specific feedback; I'll be asking several people to read the Jagger3 index feedback at that time.
Don't wait to send Jagger-related spam feedback; I'd send that now. Using the keyword "Jagger" at [google.com...] will get someone reading and checking it out.
Well, I can accept that Google changes their algo's to present better results, less dependend on "smart" SEO..
I can also accept that I loose rankings, simply because other sites are better, more orignal, or however better....
I would admit "defeat" with grace and respect..
But the current results, at least for some of the terms that I am watching, are simply filled with very strange, highy irrelevant results, and could easily be replaced with much better sites, and I am not talking about my own.
If G was selling cars, then some of their models would have gone directly back to the factory, and people wouldn't trust the models that were still driving.
we mightbe lucky to see already today the start of Jagger3 (nickname Canonical Killer).
Could this DC, 188.8.131.52, be jagger3 with the canonical issue fixed?
I'm asking because I just tried --> site:domain.com and the serps gives me the link
as the only result. So it looks like Google understands that www.domain.com is the same site as domain.com
