Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The thing that is saving Google is their brand and the fact that people are adverse to change.
I don't have a good way of telling which keywords are the ones on which I lost ground
The Google forums say that all non-google search engines just use their 1998 algorithm .
That's all they are to them...dust in the wind.
Ah, that would explain why Bing's results are so clean and fast without hardly any spam, well, not in my sector.
Honestly, when/if you go to the pub do you leave a conflab and go talk to others or do you listen/learn/discuss all what is happening?
It infuriates me to hell at WebmasterWorld when posters, and mods, try to keep everything in one place...that's NOT how life, or the real world, exists. Anyone who is posting here should know that the Internet world is extremely fluid, if you do not then you are in totally the wrong business/place/industry.
This week we took action on a German agency's link network/clients. More to come in Germanyhttps://twitter.com/mattcutts/status/431581629933289472 [twitter.com]

[edit reason] Added link [/edit]
More to come in Germany.
Just stop #*$! around Cutt's & make page one eBay & Amazon.
We donīt buy links or participate in any link networks but since this update we see massive movements to the bad.
When corruption is rooted out, ripple effects are inevitable.
Let's say that sites A, B, and C are part of a link network. Site D isn't, but it gets links from sites A, B, and C.
If links from sites A, B, and C lose their "link juice," site D will be affected.
So will site E (which has a link from Site D), and so on down the chain.
Of course that can certainly happen but that does not explain why Amazon & eBay always seem to rise to the top.
Amazon and eBay don't always rise to the top. But even if they did, it could easily be because they're tremendously popular sites with excellent user metrics and more than enough inbound links to withstand any "link juice" losses that might result from a cleanup of link networks.
