Even if Google ignores incorrect hreflang implementation, from a webmaster point of view, its best not to ignore the hreflang notifications and move to fix the same.

Are you saying you think Google improved its judgment on natural/unnatural links? The treatment of disavow information by Google is pretty clear, corresponding links are treated like nofollow. How do you think they are treating disavow information differently?

I raised in rankings last week, now they are the same again as last week(still most a bit improved). We shall see SERPS seem to change only for the domains i do linkbuilding on, the other ones are stable.

Google is Awesome commented on Google Update This Weekend? More Black Hat Focused?
Yeah, I'd like to see Google come in on adult toys, videos and stuff like that. What would they call that service? Google Fcuk? Oh wait. Most people are already calling them that.

They should just give you the option of autoarchiving each day's data to a Drive account.

Your pretty much out of business when google home services come in aren't you? Esp when they move into bands/personal trainers and anything and everything local? To be fair you had a good run, hopefully you have a nest egg now the parties almost over!

Simon commented on Google Update This Weekend? More Black Hat Focused?
Hi Marie. Presumably there's a correlation between site owners who've previously engaged in cheeky link building and site owners who've previously over-optimised text, mixed ads with content, written thin content, etc. Is it not possible that this is a Panda ripple that you're interpreting as a links ripple due to links being your area of expertise?
Comment ID #2172434518 at 08/03/2015 03:31 pm:
I'm definitely seeing changes (both positive and negative) in sites with link issues, but not all of them. I don't think this is Penguin...especially since Google says Penguin is still months away, but I do think that they made some sort of change in how Google assesses unnatural links and disavow information.

Ha I'm not complaining, just stating facts, is Pete Myers complaining here? https://moz.com/blog/the-incredible-shrinking-serp I guess when someone doesn't like my response, I'm whiny or a complainer. I'm transparent, see my image and profile. You hide because you're another word for a cat.

AdWords has taken up an additional 19.5% of SERP space. Other than you I don't see anyone complaining about this....I suspect its because most sensible people understand its Googles website therefore as with your website they and you can do whatever you like..

I know for a fact that it was not penguin. Maybe it's Google just eating up more SERP space and making everyone worry about a Panda. http://mozcast.com/features AdWords has taken up an additional 19.5% of SERP space. IMO for the last year every Google update should be written in quotes like this "every Google update" It stated with the https, then mobile, now Panda. But I recall Google said they are going to stop announcing these updates, perhaps they decided to announce wrong updates to misguide all of us. Google lies and manipulates to their advantage, we already know that they will do whatever it takes to help themselves and they can care less about anything else.

Han commented on Google Now Offers Notifications Of Hotel Price Drops
Looks like a cool feature but in the end it's only good for Google's own revenue. Hotels and their aggregators (booking etc.) will pay the CPC twice to Google for the same customer which will lead to higher guest acquisition costs (currently 15% to 25% of the room price) which will lead in the end to higher room prices. If I were in the hotel sector I wouldn't be very happy about this..

it had to come out at some point. It's only fair everyone knows.

Agreed. What if you're building out yoursite.ca, yoursite.com.au, yoursite.com - all English versions of your site with localized content but incorrectly hreflang'ed. Won't be pretty.

Are you talking about keywords with 0 competition like most local terms for small businesses? If so those can rank with mostly social.

blackhat commented on Google: The Panda Roll Out Is Slow For Technical Reason, Not To Confuse Webmasters
So Google's panda update isn't going to slow crawling to a crawl. Its that for technically technical reasons that the output of the process is crawling to a crawl. But the crawling is unchanged. There's nothing confusing or misleading about it.

blackhat commented on Google Is Getting Tired Of Pushing For Extended Data In The Search Console
LOL... they charge $150,000 to turn off sampling in Google Analytics... For a couple hundred per month they will push you towards AdWords.
