Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Does anyone feel that there might have been some type of update on November 15? That was last Friday.
I would be willing to bet it [the yellow ad graphic] doesn't stick around that long. I think it's great from a consumer perspective but I'm sure the added level of transparency brings Google click revenue down quickly.
Retailers have been pushed to page 2/3 onwards, which doesn't make sense as when searching for our product one wouldn't really want to see manufacturers. It's the kind of thing one only searches to buy.
Something is seriously going wrong with google.. looks like they are not able to control it anymore.. too much algo changes has made something terribly wrong.. we have not seen that kind of improper results and indexing in past few years..looks like their algo is out of control :)
Most of the first page listings belong to members of Google's lobbying group the "Internet Association".
