You obviously troll on Quora, Amazon and sponsored content websites to have such a high opinion of Google search results, and now you target SEO forums as well.

snuffy commented on The Industry Mourns The Loss Of Bill Slawski

Thank you Bill for all of the questions that you answered so generously in forums, for the Saturday morning calls, all of the patents you summarized, and everything that you taught me. You were a wonderful person. Thank you so much!

I agree. I don't understand what Google is looking for. What they say and what shows in SERPS are two different things. My traffic went down over 30% in February. I have since been working non-stop updating old content. I got traffic back to and above where it was. Also, I updated the theme to fully responsive, Gutenberg optimized, Studio Press theme. I was using an HTML 5 Studio Press theme. The site was faster, rendering properly in mobile. Content was improved. And yesterday my traffic dropped 40%. I'm furious. I'm back lower than 3 months ago. I look at articles above me and they are often thin content. I know many of them are using PBN's because the content is garbage. I give up. Who is Google to act as if their algorithm is what we all should be trying to satisfy. Who made Google the ultimate authority on content. Meanwhile Google is extracting all of our content to the search page so people don't have to go to our site and read our articles. We supply the information that Google profits from and it's only getting worse. And yet Google wants to tell us how to create content. Tell us Mr.Google how to create content so it's structured exactly the way you nees it to extract it to your SERPS. What a mess. Am I the only one who feels this way. I've read other comments who see the the nonsense taking place. Google is playing us us for fools.

My site had a good surge in rankings/traffic/impressions on Sunday and Monday... then I wake up this morning and I'm seeing majority of my keywords moved way down from 1st page of SERP's-- huge drop. No idea why. Fingers crossed there will be a reversal coming... but honestly I'm just getting really tired of the extreme volatility when not much has changed on my end. (In fact, my site quality has been steadily improving for a long time... but google doesn't appear to really be looking at that.) SEO is a terrible way to build a business!

Fun fact, the photos Go Fish shared, I was actually sitting right next to him at a conference... He was on my left. I will miss Bill. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bad2ce145799e088721941eae4fa12e62ddb91af644d691aec1bb3a3443180bb.jpg

Google needs to respect webmasters, respect their work and not turn sites in Image CDNs or lift content. I bet that photo isn't actually you, you found it somewhere. I do go to work like this...

Anyone shilling this hard for Google definitely knows all about the meaning of suck. Try not to choke on sucking down your next soy latte, among other things.

Traffic hit a new all-time low on Monday but has improved exponentially last couple of days. Today started off well, with lots of traffic in the early hours, but since everyone got out of bed it's been horrific (conversion wise).

Bing is very cool with pop-up various results. In general I'm sad that it is not so popular.

What damage. They are working on a core update which is causing a few minor issues but Google always delivers quality results no matter what

Let me guess... uh... Lies? :-) Of course he does. He's an apologist for a end stage capitalism monopoly. He does not have much of a choice :-)

Google whatever you're doing you deserve more respect from webmasters. Google is the best search engine and there's no search engine even close enough to compete with them. Sorry Bill Gates but Bing sucks and if you don't understand the meaning of 'suck' then you can Google it

He just says Noice because he has John Mu's crotch in his mouth so it makes it difficult for him to pronounce the word correctly.

Golden Phoenix commented on Google Search Ranking Update Monday On May 16th - Unconfirmed

same here. pretty much devastating. And I don't even understand it. I don't know why my relevant page that was ranking for years is not and irrelevant pages that don't even target the search term are ranking. Never seen it this bad and I have seen some bad updates. There was always a way to figure out what was happening and what to do.

Google's results are AWFUL lately. I mean, we're talking 1996 search engine awful, maybe worse. I wanted to know which songs by the band the Who were done during their lighthouse sessions recordings. This is a relatively "known" topic. Here's what I got by querying "the who songs that came from lighthouse sessions": - 4 Youtube videos, none of which were by the Who. - Complete Lighthouse Sessions by Art Pepper & Shorty ... - Lighthouse Sessions | Giorgis Manolakis | SNFCC - The Lighthouse And The Whaler brings indie stardom to The ... - Stan Getz – The Lighthouse Sessions Vol. 1 - Discogs - D.C. Myers Glows Goth on His Debut EP, Lighthouse Sessions - Lighthouse (band) - Wikipedia - Pepper, Art, Rogers, Shorty - Complete Lighthouse Sessions - Lighthouse Sessions | Nikos Xydakis :: TicketServices.gr Nothing about the Who. OK, maybe that is a hard query, right? I tried Bing: - List of songs recorded by the Who - Wikipedia - The Who – The Lifehouse Saga and Who ... - Music … - 3 videos by the Who - List of songs by The Who - Lifehouse (rock opera) - Wikipedia Google is now shit, absolute shit.

something very strange going on in the SERPs. Run an iPhone focused website. Pages have dropped to the 4th page and pages are now ranking higher that have the word "phone" in their titles. So you search for "something something for iPhone" and Google is showing "something something for phone" for me mostly. Very strange
