Google's Two Word Keyword Filter?

Jul 28, 2006 - 9:55 am 3 by

A new WebmasterWorld thread is theorizing a new Google filter, currently coined, "google 2 kw filter." Now, this is what several Webmasters are reporting:

  • 2 kw term
  • used to rank very high, now vanished
  • with " "'s returns to high rank
  • does not affect rankings for other terms on same site
  • home page involved
  • only happens on google, still rank high on Y/MSN
  • appears on only specific but changing data centers
  • long standing site
  • Without quotes main keywords gone.
  • With quotes, main keywords appear in normal positions

I have not validated any of this but there is a three page WebmasterWorld thread with many folks discussing this new Google filter.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
