As if Google isn't smart enough to know that this is a negative comment about the so called "marketing agency in Malaysia"

Google should really scrape the May 2020 Core update ... whoever created it obviously didn't kno what they were doing.

Google making out it’s all about quality control like they haven’t messed it all up. Absolute rubbish I’m in a niche where I’m competing with nothing but spam sites, no quality, terrible spelling and grammar, spam back links, no quality whatsoever, I chose the niche because of this. So I create in depth quality ticking all of Google’s little demands. Within a month I had rocketed to 1st page for many terms, algo update hits, deindexed all of my posts all 30. Left spam sites right at the top 😂🙈 now it could have been a coincidence but I’ve recently launched a new site, again good quality, unique, images, video content, interlinking, good social media following growing, guess what....been trying to get my posts indexed and no luck. They’ve indexed about 5 out of 100. The strange thing is they have however indexed a sample page I forgot about, and tag pages I set to no index, they’ve also indexed categories! Google mess with algorithms far too much, some work well yet in my eyes most don’t. Anyone who thinks blackhat SEO is dead are wrong! You’re going to see it return soon with a vengeance 👍

Fabrizio Ferrari commented on Complaints About Indexing Issues In Google May Be Related To May 2020 Core Update

Ok, but we are also talking about the mass-reindex of pages prior the update... right? Have you gotten the same curve as the graph Barry posted above? I got a very similar curve since February. And then it stabilized around April 22. And then my site got hit on May 5th and keeps losing rankings. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6221abfbb2d983c365bda504cd6f515cbd9e673efeb264f2f7a8c38443f2ec1e.png

jackie commented on Complaints About Indexing Issues In Google May Be Related To May 2020 Core Update

Yeah, indexing issue has always been there with every major updated. Just launched a new site a week prior to the May update and it was indexing at a normal rate. After the May update, Google stopped indexing any of my remaining pages, as well as the new ones

Andrew Cilio commented on Did Google's May 2020 Core Update Mess Up Google's Search Results?

This is the first time in ten years I'll say this, but yes, across the board it looks like they deeply screwed the pooch on this one. Trying to find an exact answer to a long-tail question will net you the same 20 or so generic articles from larger sites in varying order no mater how specific you make your query. Sometimes I want a forum post.

Steven Beckley commented on Did Google's May 2020 Core Update Mess Up Google's Search Results?

So I have a couple sites I haven't touched in years that improved with the update (they should not have). Quality is not as good.. I also see pinterest, google apps, google books everywhere. For personal search to many results from other countries is not helpful .

Fabrizio Ferrari commented on Complaints About Indexing Issues In Google May Be Related To May 2020 Core Update

Barry, I have a curve exactly like that one and my site was hit by the update. How would you suggest tackling this issue? I am thinking to set those pages as "noindex" and keep only the ones that performed well, as well as adding new pages to the index and then monitor them and, eventually, remove them after a few weeks if they don't perform well. Thoughts?

Per Englund commented on Did Google's May 2020 Core Update Mess Up Google's Search Results?

I do find Bings results to be better than Google for most searches these days. It's just so out of practice using Bing. And Google is in such a dominant position that it's been hard to see how any poor updates actually made any different for Google in terms of volume and advertising gains. But I think this update might actually be one of those events where more and more people has had enough of huge updates with no clear information from Google. And when the results means poorer search results time by time. Lots of Pinterest stuff flooding the search queries. Lots of YouTube videos. Lots of ads and then at #8 and then next page an organic page that I actually wanted to see. And often the top pages seems to be websites from the 90s when UX and UI wasn't invented yet with no depth to the content. Mesmerising.

There is so much shit in the SERPs. Using Google for a search engine is awful. Start using DuckDuckGo.... No Tracking No Shit

Mr Aidan Ward commented on Did Google's May 2020 Core Update Mess Up Google's Search Results?

I to am not too keen on slating Google for exactly the same reasons as you but the SERPS I follow now are just weird. For instance 1 search phrase I follow now is just packed with various different newspaper reports which in the main are useless. Say you were searching 'Blue Widgets' most of the results are stories of blue widgets being robbed years ago or someone winning them ages ago, no value at all to the searcher.

snuffy commented on Google People Also Search For Ads Carousel

These are ads.... posting them under a "People Also Search For" and some of these other titles is like dipping crap in chocolate. Google's job is to call them "ads" or "advertising".
