incidentally i was actually expcting to see something about logs of wood..but i didnt..a map is number two..this is on .co.uk..
Oct. 3rd was a back to normal traffic for us .. not great, but normal .. we all smiled in relief.
Then oct 4th, business was down right bad. Just some of our test base searches are showing all kinds of product ads from amazon,nextag,shopping.msn.com,
It was so slow it made me go visit some news sites to see if something drastic had happened in the world that no one told us about ... but alas the sky was not falling.
On the bright side .. traffic from msn, ask and yahoo are growing steadily.
Amazingly, they're the same. What, keyword density doesn't matter anymore? Can it be?
Considering MC told people to back off the SEO, this is exactly what I did. I cut down the keyword density by a very large amount and a site was removed from the box after being in there since June 27th. I made sure there were no repitions of the title, meta tags, keywords, etc...It seems the the idea of "conceptual density" as tedster has mentioned is slowly taking effect IMO. The only sites that I see ranking high and for lengthy periods of time that can break some of these rules are authority sites that have been around for a long time.
Has google read in ww about the all unique content, no Dup Content and all different title tags to do better in google and now they are going to punish all who followed the advice?
Goolge, why must allmost everything u guys do, end up in a disaster?
My feeling is that big changes are about to happen, and we need to wait this out.
Last point is IMO the fact what google ist looking for and like every time they do something like that, trusty white had pages are affected, too. Hope they will find another way to to so.
Wish u a nice sunday.
kind of still
when did the alleged PR update actually took place - was it 30th of Sep or some other day?
The first reports of a PR and backlinks update were on 28th. There are definitely geographical differences. 80% of DCs are showing the new PR values when using most tools, yet I'm still seeing the older value on the toolbar here in the UK (from 22.214.171.124).
