Incredible...the SERP is nonsensical

A reason my posts never got indexed since Sept 2023, those posts were of better quality than the previous ones. The previous ones still indexed, but not newer ones, and since September 2023 I haven't posted any new content.

My favourite thing: Submitting an URL in search console. Bet it fckn doesn't appear in the SERPs, however search console states it's indexed. Even the images from these pages doesn't appear. Old, never submitted, nearly empty pages indexed, but new, carefully created pages/articles doesn't appear, even if there isn't big competition. It seems like google affraid that these pages will get traffic because there are no competitors around it.

The current rankings are weird. The new ranking system them put in place last year seems almost random. The good thing is that you cannot easily manipulate random, but the downside is your rankings seem random, which is not necessarily what users want. I still believe that they will switch back to something that makes sense at some point.

the point is AI can't write similar articles cause it lacks sentience the catch is that similar articles don't monetize well and u need 1 mill views to make money but ultimately the old methods are dead

Looks like the example site you mentioned has been established/running for 15 years and allows comments to create a sense of community to bring users back. Fact checking stories is another plus for visitor retention and brand loyalty. They would likely survive I'm sure, but with less traffic from Google trying to gobble it all up.

I wrote that by the way. I could beat AI obviously. But I can't match its output. That's the point. You will complain less when you realize your production potential.

sites that are not answer based (e.g., listverse.com) but trigger curiosity and the like could survive since AI can't really replace them AI has no sense of irony, modesty, mystery...etc. But it can juggle basic info and therefore replace answer site at least theoretically but the classifier is simply way TOO BRUTAL for it to be a "mistake" it's a super-preplanned murder weapon

<blockquote>any site that is essentially a question answering site based on the queries in the search box will not recover</blockquote>I don&#x27;t think recovery will ever occur either. Google ranks Redshit now, but Google has already stole the answers and date from our sites to display in AI Overlords. All info sites are doomed, even Redshit once their contract with Google ends.

I have been learning AI for the past week. Chatbots have changed everything. Writers are now editors. The change tech professionals said was coming? It&#x27;s already here for websites. AI will change everything. It already is. You&#x27;re now the editor of AI written content. When John Mueller says what value are you adding, he&#x27;s asking what are you giving to the internet that it doesn&#x27;t have already? That&#x27;s why they also say that they delete what they already have. The game has changed. A lot of the content on websites is not even close to what chatbots create. You have the chance to fill websites with the content people are using chatbots to find. They&#x27;re letting you do it. They want you to steal the content back from the chatbots that they stole from you. You aren&#x27;t just Jennifer Lopez anymore. You are Jennifer Lopez in Atlas. You have Smith already. I haven&#x27;t got time to explain anymore. You either get it or you don&#x27;t. The world has changed. I have to create content or die. Good luck to you yaz. You&#x27;ll need it. We all will. When Google says it will delete content too similar to something it already has, it&#x27;s not that they can&#x27;t understand how you deserve the right to create the content, as some SEOs suggest. It&#x27;s because the production capacity has increased so much that they aren&#x27;t going to fuck around with it anymore. Before it was 10 similar articles. With AI, it could be 5,000. And AI has gotten so good, that Google isn&#x27;t going to pretend to guess which is better. Your success comes from your ideas now. What can you tell Smith to do? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d14899a8a4a6e8f3b0b78aedd91cd56247d545d0d37376fede1976abc868c925.jpg

any site that is essentially a question answering site based on the queries in the search box will not recover (spam and some black hat stuff are not included) it&#x27;s by design - those are the very sites that can be replaced by reddit and forums also, independent review sites will not recover either so, if you were one of the two or both, I don&#x27;t think recovery is possible in the foreseeable future - like at least 1 year <b>the classifier is EXTREMELY EXTREMELY aggressive </b>towards similar sites and DOESN&#x27;T SLEEP it&#x27;s like some vindictive SOB that takes amphetamines to never sleep as well as pain killers for his hemorrhoid&#x27;s so that he can stay in front of your house and monitor every move you make FFS, even the images of our sites were erased from Google I bet that the new core update will either reinforce that or simply do nothing

Just like Google&#x27;s BS mission statement, &quot;Google’s mission is to organize the world&#x27;s information and make it universally accessible and useful,&quot; all of these high profile platforms seek to trap users in an ocean of ad spam. Their aim is to erect walls of impenetrable ads to separate users from information, and in Google&#x27;s case distort that information by willfully stealing our content and spinning it with AI Overlords. Edit: So Pinterest dumps millions into buying ads to make it appear their traffic is rising. Google does the same with bad SERPS and People Also Pisser boxes to make it look like the number of search queries is growing. From these big platforms it&#x27;s all games, obfuscation and lies. I just can&#x27;t wait to see it all come crumbling down on them, and that will happen when users realize those platforms they love have been scamming them all along.

snuffy commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update & Volatility Around July 18th
I can post one positive comment... I see fewer &quot;product review sites&quot; in the <u><b>organic</b></u> SERPs these days compared to a year ago. I used to see two or more product reviews on the first SERP of many product queries that I watch. Google still seems to rank some of product reviews high in the SERPs - but not like during the days when they were in love with them. I personally believe that somebody had a skunk works running 24/7 that produced product review pages with affiliate links to Amazon. They probably got rich the first month. Google seems to have killed a lot of those pages - but there are still more than I want to see.

snuffy commented on Google's Advice On Understanding If Your SEO Team Is Doing Their Job
I think... most SEO marketers were educated in the schools of link exchange, directory submissions, and guest blogging. Their shite isn&#x27;t going to work because it isn&#x27;t going to work. And, these days you can have the absolute best SEO on the planet and they can&#x27;t get your site to rank - even if they is a magician - because positions in the organic SERPs are stirred twice daily and stuff that floats to the top is spooned off and thrown down the sink. <i>Snuffy ponders if &quot;they&quot; gets the singular verb or the plural verb -- especially if &quot;they&quot; is one person? Using &quot;they is&quot; might be the dialect of my geographic location while &quot;they are&quot; might suggest my search for better grammar is incomplete. I hate to just use what feels best when it hits my ear. What do you think?</i>

Sometimes I wonder do Googlers secretly follow IS and decide to pin &quot;Pinterest&quot; to the &quot;maybe penalise?&quot; board. I&#x27;m sure many have switched to Pinterest or some other platforms to salvage their traffic. Today I checked the stats again and Pinterest is hit further. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/86faa6cca294e4ed92faaa3a2aa14bd6e288580986c668dd116795ebdbdfb087.png From 957 million on 17 July to 820 million today. That&#x27;s 14%+ now. Yesterday I posted that it was 11%... I wouldn&#x27;t be surprised if it gets even worse in the coming days. What&#x27;s even sadder is Pinterest has been doing a lot of paid traffic since they were hit on 8th of May. Their paid traffic numbers was only 315K then. Now it is 1.1 million. And now that they are hit, they may have to scale up and increase their ad budget further. This is just sick.

Yup. Same problem. Even today, I have seen like 6 completely different versions of the SERP in my niche within 3 hours. It&#x27;s a joke.

I don&#x27;t know the country you are from. Still, I agree with your opinion that young leaders are essential for understanding the current situation affecting the lives of people, particularly the young generation. This is one of the burning problems in almost every country around the globe: people with whom we have a generation gap fail to realize the issues prevalent in society and the measures that should be adopted to address them. However, nothing happens in the way we want the nation&#x27;s political scenario to be. I&#x27;m not saying that people above 50 aren&#x27;t good enough to play their roles as leaders. Yet, there&#x27;s a necessity for assigning people of different age groups to various positions to address WHAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. That way, it would solve many issues, but as I said, getting things done at a national and international level is beyond our powers, especially when we want it at an individualized level.

I think we are all trying different things. I am no fan of Meta, Pinterest owners, Google, but people are kidding themselves if they think money can&#x27;t be made on these sites. Is it great? No. Am I happy about it? No. But it buys me time until I find another solution. If a half decent position was available that made sense, I would consider it. But how do you go back to the corporate world after 18 years?
