tobstar commented on Web Pages Can Rank For Image Alt Text Content In Google Web Search

Underrated and often overlooked. A ranking factor that as Ralf says has been around a very very long time. That's pre Google for the youngsters out there.

Rahul Sharma commented on Google Core Update Is Not The Panda Algorithm

I have been waiting for a long time (since Dec 2018) for the Google Panda Refresh to happen, is it expected anytime soon? When was the last time, Google Panda Data Refresh happened?

Filip Sil commented on SEO Poll Shows Many SEOs Still Focusing On Desktop Page Analysis

but shouldn't rankings on mobile be the same as on desktop?

@Michael_Martinez commented on SEO Poll Shows Many SEOs Still Focusing On Desktop Page Analysis

"I am surprised 117 SEOs said they focus only on desktop analysis - that just seems like a bad idea" <-- Not to me. Desktop search still accounts for the same number of queries as mobile search, and many businesses only benefit from desktop search.

A long lasting ranking factor, alt text.

Tony Prower commented on Another Google Update Happening In May?

Did anyone find out what this update was? My organic traffic reduced 80% after 23 May 2019. My thriving online business is now dead.

Seo novice commented on Google Core Update Is Not The Panda Algorithm

Are they saying that even if you fix what the core update punished a site for it will still remain punished?

If you are such a large corporation and don't have to give any kind of dividend to your investors and they're digging it, you have all the money in the world to buy all that stupid stuff and more.

nishant gupta commented on Google Hotel Search Tests Hotel Box Without Local Identifier

Hey barry how searching hotel is making sense? If you live in your house why would you search for hotel. It is for those people who came to your city and search for hotel.

ronburgundy2 commented on Google Says It's Possible For YouTube Embeds To Slow Your Page Speed Score

YouTube embeds on mobile are a HUUUUUUUGE slowdown. Embedded videos require 946.8KB of resources to load into a mobile browser, according to Google's own tool. For just ONE video. TLDR Google is being dishonest at best.

Jim Weston commented on Recent Google User Interface Tests: Refine Layers, Mini-Carousels, Shopping Toggle, Mortgage Calculator & More

Agreed, users are not complaining but they are not smart enough to know a good search result from a bad one "if Google delivers it must be right". Most users will click on the first thing that comes up and figure its what they are looking for. There is still a small group of people who are practical thinkers and have (common sense) those are also most likely the small percentage of people who use other search engines.

Anna's Cosmetics commented on Google On The Medic Update: It Is Global; All Categories Of Search

Guys, I know this thread is 10 months old, but <a href="https://www.annascosmetics.com/">my store</a> got hit 7 months after YMTL update. How is this possible? I had an SEO team working for me from September 2018 until Feb 2019. They were improving content along with the technical side. I invested a huge amount of money just to lose all what's been achieved. And the funniest thing is that NOBODY can tell me how to restore the rankings! It's driving me mad..

ANSISdotORG commented on DailyMail Admit To Losing Half Of Their Google Traffic After June 2019 Core Update

There is only one talking point, and it is the fact that ALL "news" reporting is and always has been misinformation from biased sources pushing their own agenda. That includes your mediabiasfactchecker.com Read the list of sites it says are "legitimate science". Here is just one example.. "In review, Precision Vaccinations “publishes vaccine news based upon valid research from universities, government agencies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and the WHO.” LOL It is a valid source of information because it uses propaganda from government agencies in the pocket of Big Pharma and pursuing slow kill genocide against the American People, universities doing studies funded by the same Big Pharma, The pharmaceutical manufacturers themselves, and the WHO who is overseeing the vaccination genocide in foreign countries. Yet they are touted as "authorities" on the most egregious crime against humanity that has ever been perpetrated. Some people are so deluded and brainwashed as to be a waste of time trying to wake them up. Keep believing the crap you are being fed. Want some good advice.... Think for yourself, and start from the position that EVERYTHING you read is wrong and designed to mislead you at your own peril. Especially when it concerns matters of your own health. ALL prescription drugs are poison in the human body designed to make it malfunction. Those are some facts for you.....

@Michael_Martinez commented on Recent Google User Interface Tests: Refine Layers, Mini-Carousels, Shopping Toggle, Mortgage Calculator & More

I suspect increased volatility and user-specific variability in the SERPs are the new norm. If they are using Groupwise Scoring Functions the way they seemed to be when they introduced them last year, they could easily create many resolution pathways for popular queries. In other words, the old "200 ranking signals" nugget may quickly become 2000 (figuratively speaking).

snuffy commented on Google Sofa Bush

When I read "In the Plex" I got the impression that Google was really thrifty - even cheap. However, Barry shares a continuous stream of photos showing spend-thrifty stuff that Google is buying.

I only see website owners complaining not googles users... Remember google is for the user! Many of these new features makes 3rd party websites useless, while this is sad for the owners the users benefit directly

I think Google need to calm the fuck down. It's totally insane how much the serps are changing in 2019. See those goal posts, instead of moving 5mph now their moving at 20mph

Evan Conas R. Allen commented on DailyMail Admit To Losing Half Of Their Google Traffic After June 2019 Core Update

First of all, did you even open the links? Doesn't seem like it. Second of all, you are a walking stereotype of someone who doesn't actually talk about the points in an argument and just throws out rhetoric. You are what's wrong with America, more so than even the fakest of news.

Which is extra ironic considering that they don't even make any content in the first place, it's made for them lol. Who are they even paying to need so many ads?

Stephen Howe commented on DailyMail Admit To Losing Half Of Their Google Traffic After June 2019 Core Update

I don't like sites that don't deal in truth. And I don't care about political agenda in this context. The Daily Mail are shysters. And I am right-leaning, so in theory, I should be sympathetic to them. I am not.

Once again, waiting for Google to crawl your pages is simply not good enough.

Luciano Borg commented on Bing Adds Batch URL Submission Support To Webmaster Tools API

No there may be soooo many other reasons - like, for example, Google is not keeping up with crawling the web as it grows exponentially. Rather than wait for Google to visit thousands iof pages of a new site I pushed hundreds of URLs for Rizk.com and traffic trebled in three months! I have GA proof!
