Google makes hundreds and hundreds of updates each year
Provide value that's not already on 100 other sites.
As for "big updates" that drastically affect millions of sites, they may happen about every six months or a year apart.
I'm going to disagree with this one. Google hates original or unique content, it loves more of the same.
@goodroi: Provide value that's not already on 100 other sites. Build a new tool, write a free book, create original videos, solve a problem that others ignore.
@NickMNS: I'm going to disagree with this one. Google hates original or unique content, it loves more of the same.
You can be a breakaway or take turns drafting in the peloton, your choice, your effort.
How to Prepare & Recover From Google Updates1.- How to prepare: churn, burn, hope & pray
1.- How to prepare: churn, burn, hope & pray
2.- How to recover: churn, burn, hope & pray
for the webmaster not backed by millions worth of ad budget.
You go in with a churn and burn attitude, you will never achieve long term success.Don't bet on it - since 1998 have nothing to complain.
100M visitors a year nowYeah, right - and posting here? So is this where I get to roll on the floor laughing?
Yeah, right - and posting here?
WW will always hold a bit of my loyalty for giving me a place to learn the ropes and see what was possible. So, yeah, when a topic inspires me and I am not crazy busy with life, I will give a little of that back.
WebmasterWorld isn't as full of 'name' players as it was a decade and more agoWould you venture some honest speculation where most of those folk are now?
I even know a couple, no longer active here, who were in excess of 1-million a day (xxlarge) before they left.May I draw your attention to "a couple"?
I am 100% certain I could do it again.Certainty under Google today?
How to Prepare For & Recover From Google UpdatesMy take (and consequent recommendation) was this thread was referring to the average Joe Webmaster like myself who would need to prepare for a nosedive in income caused by a random Google update (mainly intended to siphon more income to Google) and thereafter need to recover from losing a large chunk of income overnight.
Unfortunately . . . both the web and WebmasterWorld have become more staid, and largely uncomprehending. WebmasterWorld isn't as full of 'name' players as it was a decade and more ago . . . There is little of personal interest discussed and too many seem to just want a crying towel.Reality or perceived reality of an idealized past as the world has moved on?
That said WebmasterWorld, imo, is the best public general webdev forum currently available.Maybe a bit of a contradiction here? Doesn't seem to fit with the above.
Am I tempted to leave? Absolutely.Hmmmm . . . .
