What about the people optimizing really hard and doing a lot of SEO. We don't normally pre-announce changes but there is something we are working in the last few months and hope to release it in the next months or few weeks. We are trying to level the playing field a bit. All those people doing, for lack of a better word, over optimization or overly SEO - versus those making great content and great site. We are trying to make GoogleBot smarter, make our relevance better, and we are also looking for those who abuse it, like too many keywords on a page, or exchange way too many links or go well beyond what you normally expect. We have several engineers on my team working on this right now.
Or is it that Amit Singhal has such a complex set of algorithmn arrays that not even he is able to give specifics anymore?
Cloaking refers to the practice of presenting different content or URLs to users and search engines.
It's not a black and white thing, and Google knows that automatically penalizing frames would deprive their users of what might be useful content
Why does Google cache the target page instead of the page itself?
What I'm seeing is nothing but a black hat technique. It's so obvious(to me anyway). The offender should 301 the domain(page) instead - because they own it.
No - that's not what I'm complaining about, I live in the real world and the business I run has been difficult from the day I started it.
What I am complaining about is the rubbish results being served atm and the fact that you have to have very deep pockets (like as deep as a massive multi-national's) before you even think about advertising certain products above the fold.
Also, google dishes up SEO advice and then says, oh if you do a bit too much you'll be struck down. What's a bit too much SEO? Very subjective indeed.
BTW, I recently starting using Bing much more often. They do have better results than Google now.ponyboy96
If I was being really cynical, I'd say that Panda was a complete clusterfsck and they are trying to recover from the mess it made.jmccormac
