So we need to stay realistically humble when we analyze what Google is doing
Google is shifting from a ranking model to a content providing model so the days of allowing Google free-reign over our site content may also be nearing a point of review.
Those guys a the plex are talented for sure, but Google Search is just not working.
The willingness to wallow in that kind of emotional swamp is killing off good webmasters and good online businesses.
True. But many of us *can* be more clever/cunning.
For most of us, the average search engineer at Google IS smarter than we are
For me, doing good SEO work means accepting and knowing that these two shortfalls are mine: I'm not the smartest cookie in the jar, and I can make big mistakes trying to read the motives of others.
The world is changing, search engines are advancing and improving, knowing we don't have total control of some aspects is healthy, IMHO.In me experience Google is certainly not improving. I would say that its results have deteriorated massively over the last year or two.
I'm really beefing up my understanding of analytics software
Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet
We are all in a competitive-cooperative ecology with Google. It's not just a competitive or cooperative situation - it's both, all the time.
