Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Wondering if there is an update one of my site was hit yesterday.
Go home google you're drunk!
I keep thinking; do I help Google by making sites relevant to the search terms it gives them good positions for? Or will that same relevance cause a penalty? What a crazy world we live in.
I think google have stuck their heads up their ... with this one.
I doubt if Google is looking for that kind of "help." (What you're talking about is SEO, not organic search.)
Fuzzy organics + relevant ads = more clicks on ads and fewer on organics. QED.
wouldn't it make sense to spend more money on ads and less on SEO?
We are all to accept that their results are so poor that the only way to get business is to buy it?
Great post EG - what amount of spending would you suggest?
Telling them to complain about conspiracies isn't a solution.
OK, Turbocharged, what do you suggest that owners of e-commerce sites do when Google's organic results are awful (whether those results are awful by accident or by design)?
