F5 WebStudio commented on Do Health & Medical Sites Rank Too Well For Non-Medical Queries?

As we can see there is no problem https://prnt.sc/xfpw8j https://prnt.sc/xfpzv1 Many SEOs like using "main keywords" but ignore the fact of how search engines exactly work. Search engines don't use "keywords" to ranking. People don't use keywords to find the useful information or answer. Also links or something else can't pass trust or authority to pages. Search engines can't measure trust, authority or quality. Link can be a signal, but many algos evaluate this signal for a web page.

julius rosen commented on New Google Ads Editor Raise Your Budget Recommendations

As a small advertiser I was transferred over to an actual live salesperson it was only recommendation was raise your budget now I had a local ad budget at no matter what I would do would only get me about a hundred clicks a month anyway after all when there's a hundred thousand businesses in your area that's all I would expect but it turns out Google salespeople are just like automotive dealers they only know one line raise your budget after all what would you expect from someone that probably works on commission or a bonuses

AWS Mortgages commented on Google Algorithm In Flux, An Update Coming Soon?

Small naïve me believes. Google does not just hate your previous spammy website, Google hates YOU, as you're recognized as a SPAMMER, which in Google's eyes is a lazy, freeloading bum, that has to be eternally squashed. This in mind, you want to create an entirely NEW profile, personality, individuality, dye your hair, get a facial replant, proceed to Afghanistan, combine the Taliban, get a new hosting company, and also a new pc, using a new modem and make new email accounts. Then pretend to be someone else. Only THEN do you have a slender Prospect of success

AWS Mortgages commented on Google Confirms Site Speed Is A Tiny Ranking Factor

Who cares about speed not or being a ranking variable if the website is slow and doesn't convert as it might if it had been quicker. This subject is becoming ridiculous IMO. And about the royalties that are crawl. Does not that matter ? Too much BS goes on distributing like COVID-19? LOL

Bony Rathod commented on Do Health & Medical Sites Rank Too Well For Non-Medical Queries?

I'm Agree with Jimmy, I have checked result on query "how to stretch shoe" One medic site is coming on top. But if we read the whole blog they have mentioned about foot problems as well. "Foot problems from tight shoes".

Google will just say "Well, if you don't like it, then you have the option to not be on Google at all". Ugh.

Matt commented on Do Health & Medical Sites Rank Too Well For Non-Medical Queries?

Well Google thinks brands/PBNs are the solution, so I guess this makes sense. But I agree with Jimmy. Why would I go to a health site to learn about getting rid of ants?

Corporations regulate things like the Internet? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound? It is Google who is setting the guidelines for Google. SMH

John A. User commented on Google Continues Featured Snippets Supplemental Injected Links

Google will only point to a clause in their Terms and Conditions that will nullify any copyright law suit... I'm no lawyer though but I think that be their defence... Can't see any change to copyright law especially as Eric Schmidt is now part of the U.S. Government as he'll be advising against.... Did have high hopes that the Dems would tackle Googles attitude given things said in the past but not now.

That's interesting, but I could not replicate this. Probably this new featured snippets are not available worldwide yet.

TedK commented on This Is The Way Our Old SEO Did It Debate

Meh... It is a two way street. Good SEOs fire low quality clients. The only thing worse than wasting your money is wasting my time because I could have made the same money helping someone who is willing to make the necessary changes.

Clint A. Butler commented on Google Continues Featured Snippets Supplemental Injected Links

Its only a matter of time before the citation link is completely removed by some adventurous engineer and Google ends up in copyright law suits as a result of these features.

Michael Kohlfürst commented on Google My Business Listings Hijacking

We had the problem in the travel industry. A russion hotel platform hijacked the hotel website link with their affiliate link. hotels had to pay "affiliate %" for their own bookings. I already watched them in 2016 when they where connected to the most known hotel platform. The russians denied it all when we brought this to the austrian tourism board.

Your thumbnail and title bodied on this one, Barry. Bet you'll notice a sweet bump in ctr in GSC for news/discover when it updates.

He'll probably get an infection (no gloves) but at least he's for the COVID thing covered.

vaccines and medical procedures are kind of like skydiving or bungee jumping. You probably don't want to make your decision based on who's the cheapest.

Jon-Paul LaFerriere commented on Old vs New Google Video On How To Hire An SEO

My site audit decks are about 60 pages... I do however complete prelim audits (10 slides or so) that utilize publicly available data, as well as some high level metrics from a sub-directory SF crawl and Mobile Speed report/ pingdom info. It goes along way in winning new business, but I definitely wouldn't give them the whole report. I only utilize data that's already publicly available and say, "Look, people everywhere can see this...". Any business savvy individual worth working for/with will know that there's things they don't know, you know? <b>TLDR;</b> 4 hrs of work using publicly available data drives the perception of expertise, aligns you for a relationship built on trust, and sets the stage for you to come in as an authoritative figure. Oh, and it wins you the business...
