Google Search February 2009 Webmaster Report Update

Feb 4, 2009 • 8:16 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Search Algorithm Updates

Here is the February 2009 webmaster report on Google's search result changes based on the WebmasterWorld thread. I will summarize what people are noticing in the Google search results, as per the thread.

  • Google accidently labeled the internet as malware
  • Some SEOs noticed index counts double in size
  • Some are reporting a "glitch" that promotes .edu & .gov as Google Bombs
  • Longer tail keywords seem to be 'rollercoastering' in the SERPs
  • Tedster's theory is that Google is tweaking the QDF (query deserves freshness) and QDD (query deserves diversity) algorithms.

That is the bulk of what I pulled out from the thread.
