Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I'm not seeing anything unusual. Are you sure the Analytics code wasn't updated/edited on that date?
@TOI, do you remember the site i mentioned yesterday ( with the php-login and nothing on it )? Guess what, it climbed 2 positions from 10 to 8! But a page from me that was on page one got a -30 position hit!
@ - TOI & MIW - definitely seeing some very odd movement and even "Day Parting" (see, I'm not using the Zombie word anymore) or throttling periods where G must be diverting traffic through more paid channels. I believe if they had their way, they'd eliminate organic results overnite for a 100% paid system. The Wild West days are over my friends!
A thread full of "I see this. I see that" reporting would not be as helpful imo. So, thank you TOI and Wilburforce for making us think a little bit more about statistics while webmasterin.
I've seen scraper pages removed, yet Google still trusts them enough top place even more of their ill gotten content on page 1. What happened to the "Trust" metric?
I think we just misunderstand what "trust" and "quality" mean and how they are applied sometimesIt's not just us, I don't think Google understand it's own guidelines.
It seems like when I observe SERP position with WMT, my KW positions tend to rise while total impression stays the same.
That is only possible through active and intentional algorithmatic SERP index shuffling isn't it?
@TOI - Google is trying to read your mind, but keeps guessing instead. ;^)
