BirdMan commented on Google Officially Launches Thumbnail Images In Search Results For Food Items

I suspect that penguin is running real time now. After I submit a disavow and waiting a few days (mind you, thousands of links I didn't build), I noticed a reduction in rankings. I'm certain some of these links were helping, but a competitor had tried to overoptimize my site a handful of very good keywords which I started taking top spots for. Might be possible, but I don't see a whole lot of people getting excited about their "recoveries"... or maybe they've all just given up on it after all.

Vaggelis Tsagklis commented on Google Toolbar PageRank Is Now Officially Dead

Te reason that Google killed the external PR is that many of "SEOs" killed it before. So, the head pain of Google trying to find the fake PR sites where mess Google's PR was fixed by that method.

Guaranteed PPC commented on Kayak Seeks SEO Help From Google's John Mueller

With so many people with their hands in the code, I see SEO getting messed up often and almost killing businesses in the process. Redesigns of sites and conversion tracking installs are common fault points.

John didn't know that I know all the backlink domains. He just looked the site up and said it had a major backlink problem. I will try to confirm the detail with him at the next Hangout because, according to what he said, it would seem that disavowing all the manipulated links should work.

Not really. Using your narrow minded example, it would be like NOT holding the town government responsible for the contents of your burglarized home being sold at the town auction with proceeds going to the town.

I am even more confused by Johns's answer now. If you know all the backlink domains and you disavowed them. Is he stating the disavow tool does not work if you have large amounts of backlinks ?

Not sure why they had an iframe in the header but it's not there now.

Actually, I have a *very* good idea of all the domains, as the SEO company that did this work provided the full list each month until we fired them (over 3 years ago). So I've disavowed all of them at a domain level.

Majharul Hossain commented on Google May Rank Duplicate Content Across Domains When...

Well, I understand that Google may rank both same content copied from a local eCommerce to eBay for a better search result (local search and international search respectively!). But, what would happen if some one copy from Amazon to eBay?

How many bad backlinks do you have ? From how many domains ? You cant just disavow all the domains ? Is it like 100,000 domain back links ? Do you have any idea ?

David Jameson commented on Google Analytics SEO Report Not Set Is Not A Bug

Actually, what is happening is that Analytics doesn't show any queries from https://google.com, due to google using the new "origin referrer". What this means is that if you search on https://google.com, the referrer string will be set to "https://google.com", without including the query string at all. This happens even if your site is https. You can test this yourself by printing document.referrer from your https homepage (clicking through from a google search) -- you'll see that it is always just "https://google.com" with no query data. The explanation by John Mueller doesn't make sense. If "not set" is the top query, it couldn't possibly just be the sum of the bottom 30 (or whatever) queries. In our case our top query (from search console) doesn't even show up at all in analytics. Yet the number of "not set" queries matches our total https queries from search console. https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2012/03/upcoming-changes-in-googles-http.html http://smerity.com/articles/2013/where_did_all_the_http_referrers_go.html http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/39645/document-referrer-from-google-searches-only-showing-https-www-google-com-no

I cant believe that is true. So if an seo company has clients and they do their Analytic every client under their google console will get penalized ?

Nobody has a legal right to rank, but they do have a legal right to not have their intellectual property stolen and promoted by a search engine. Can you comprehend this or are you another brainwashed Googletard like some others here?

Miguel Salcido commented on Google Adds Hotel Reviews From Other Sources Including Booking.com, Priceline, Agoda & More

I would assume that this move is taking share away from the reviews providers in the long term overall. No? Don't a fair number of people just look at the overall review score, and maybe a couple reviews? Now all of that content is Google's and not as many people will click-thru to the review site as they would have before all of this content was available in SERPs.

Naiviv commented on SEO: Redirecting Expired Competitor Domain Names

I don't know what a 301 is (but will look up after I post/ask my question). A little bit of background: I know nothing about coding, domain name laws, nor do i hold a business degree. I'm simply trying to help my father's small business. He's had his own garage door company for more than 20 years. I believe it was maybe no more than 5 years ago he had a website built. We were in the process of trying to figure out who else or what other company can build us a better site because I was very dissatisfied with how his site looked (layout was crazy, bad grammar, misspelling, too much information on one page-it was just crazy!). Well, in the chaos, his domain name expired. Now, a competitor has his domain name and when you click on it, you are redirected to the competitors company home page. Is this legal? Is there anything we can do? We're still very much in business. Also, if I still have your attention (thank you for reading this far!) I was wondering if anyone knows of some reputable companies or a reputable and good site that I can look into to either hire or create something decent myself. Your time and advise/suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks. V

Jerry B. commented on Google's John Mueller On External Links & Ranking Benefit

Jeebus! Why can't people just use common sense? If it makes sense to link to something because it is relevant or somehow improves things for the reader, link to it. It just might help you when you help others. If you think linking to big name sites is going to fool Google into thinking your site should be associated with them, you're wrong.

Jerry B. commented on Google May Rank Duplicate Content Across Domains When...

If you successfully file a DMCA with Google, it takes that page out of the index. If you DMCA the host and they aren't stupid, they take down the site. Not really sure what pirate would do then except maybe downgrade the rest of a site which has too many DMCAs against it. If pirate is supposed to detect stolen content, it doesn't work very well.
