It's working just fine actually. See the below. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e9ed20b9e039dd020c8a2bdb3d9ffb01fef7b0ec70e192038648e44f09de0e27.jpg

Google is doing AB tests more than ever. You cannot “track” a keyword. Small minded people, small minded SEOs. It’s not about keywords and links anymore, don’t you get it???

It’s a 2006 thing, we don’t live in a world where audio files could justify their existence. Spotify is free of 4,99 EUR for premium quality, nobody needs a file! Especially with all the copyright issues. People use phones for got sake, not desktop computers with CRT monitors, Winamp, mp3 and Windows XP. Get up with the times!!!!

Hope that hells commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

It’s not the path Google is heading and you know it. Google is all about bringing things to answers. That’s all what matters now. Want diversity - pay or dominate a small niche. The other is reserved for platforms. The days of the websites are gone. We live internet world of platforms. If you want money, become one or join some of the platforms as a participant. Your rankings are pathetic to have any serious opinion about anything.

Michael commented on Google Explains Why Their Image Search Results Look Racist

This is bullshit. I typed in WHITE Couples and got pictures which mainly featured a black or coloured person. I typed in ALL WHITE couples and got even more black and coloured people, including some wearing ALL WHITE outfits. Yet when I typed in Black Couples, I got totally black pairs, all looking incredibly happy, which was not the case in the other instances I have mentioned. Google is clearly trying to impose its own regressive lefty political correctness upon its customers, rather than giving them what they ask for. They are treating us not like an impartial search engine should, but more like a publisher with a political agenda. If they are going to behave like politically biased online newspapers, then that is how they should be treated by the regulators and lawmakers.

umairi gilani commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

to the people saying there is no update, they are wrong. Because the keyword Im following, I see two got recovered and reappeared in serp under top 15. Both sites got removed from serp in first quarter of 2019. One site is of my friend, and he is saying he had removed some 301 redirects and disavowed links in April. 2nd site is of our competitor, and his date shows he was also tweaking his site because his last update date of content is 10th june. So, in short, yes there was update, and some sites got recovered for that.

No changes in June, nor in July ... because itll take Google another decade to implement changes for non-EN pages

Wrong. The top article for "why is the sky blue?" could still be better. You're no more special than anybody else.

What? Learn how to read bro. I'm not affiliated with supplements. And I never said there was or wasn't any update. You're commenting on an article that says there was an update. Are you on acid or what? Get away from me. I never said only big fonts rank either. You've really got some comprehension issues that I don't have time for -- and that's without looking at what you have to say about outsourced Indians.

I said it commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

The first thing a site owner should ask himself: “Can I justify the existence of that site?” In most cases these sites should not exist in the first place. If you rephrase what’s already there, there is no point of your site for any consumer. Google should purge and even deindex the majority of sites out there!

Punish them commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

There was no update! Rank trackers showed that because of HTML updates. If you hate Indians, I assume you red the guy that was thinking Indians manually adjust rankings and rank their own stuff above you as Google hired Indians. You are the same guy that had the conspiracy theory that only people with big font sizes rank. You are the desktop-first guy with crappy supplements affiliate content and you should not rank! Google should denote all affiliates!

Mathew commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

I have experienced the opposite in my niche this year. It seems as though those who upload files first -- aka like supplement owners, I guess -- get great rankings, regardless of content. In my field there are issues with people doing this. Sometimes files must remain linked to the original source so the original source can update the files, and yet those who steal the files outrank the others. And generally it's always just the same files reshared but because they reshared them that apparently justifies going to the top of SERPs. Very sad year from Google on my end. Very sad. Across the board I'm just seeing mistakes. Total rubbish.

Like most people who write online, English is probably his or her second language. No need to be rude! I'm just rude when they beat me in SERPs which is all too often.

Rick F commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

In our supplements niche first 2 pages changed completely. Even the brands owners are nowhere to be found. You would assume that the brand owner should at least appear in the 1st couple of pages, not after this last iteration! Also basically all those that were the main players in the niche for the last 5 years or so were also kicked out. A lot of them went to adwords but due to the high demand for the keywords the cost went from 80 cents to over $12 per click within less than a week. I think this is going to drive a lot of these publishers out of business considering that profit margins wont tolerate this high cost per click. By the way the first pages are now filled with Walmart, Amazon, Rakuten and sears even though they are not carrying the products. Are any of you seeing similar things in your niche?

@Michael_Martinez commented on Rand Fishkin Gets A Mention In Congressional Hearing On Google

(Ideally) Congress shouldn't be pushing for standards. The SEO community should be pushing for them. I doubt Congress will want to regulate search engine optimization but anything they do to regulate Web search will have an effect on the entire ecosystem.

@Michael_Martinez commented on Rand Fishkin Gets A Mention In Congressional Hearing On Google

This was just embarrassing to the entire Web marketing industry. The "correct filters" that make it look like Google has nearly 90% market share are mobile searches only, which is complete and total bullshit. Desktop search is still about as popular as mobile search. This is why people in Congress should NOT be using random blog posts. Instead they should be pushing for real SEO standards so bullshit articles are not cited as authoritative sources of information.

You seem very angry. All I've asked is for you to explain your original point. You don't seem to want to.

Mathew commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

Well, this is fun. Particularly because Google said they would be announcing every update going forward and didn't announce the update. Hopefully this is Google coming to their senses and realizing their flaws thus far this year. Please let this be an English editor update, so I can get back in front of the Botswanans at least. Maybe even the Indians. Wouldn't that be something? Nothing is more important than the sentences guys. No theme is more important than the sentences.

Simon commented on Rand Fishkin Gets A Mention In Congressional Hearing On Google

I do get your original point. As with many other comments of yours, you deeply resent Rand, Glenn Gabe and other 'celebrity' SEOs, as they're always being quoted and you're not, yet you feel you're far more knowledgeable than they are. Regarding use of caps, what YOU need to understand is that if you act like a SPOILT BRAT and continually REFUSE to explain yourself, then NO-ONE will take you seriously. In this instance, Congress (and Rand) is correct. Google is a monopoly. It's irrelevant who is quoting what from where.

Alex commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

Grain of salt! Google definitely changed something that has thrown off a lot of the top industry trackers. I'm noticing they are a bit blind to maps and PAA- common in my industry. Now everything looks way up for me but I do not believe it!

Simon commented on Rand Fishkin Gets A Mention In Congressional Hearing On Google

Calm down with the caps. What inappropriate method of analysis do you mean? Rand states that Google is a monopoly, and justifies this by data from multiple valid sources. This is a perfectly reasonable conclusion. What exactly is your issue? That Congress mentions Rand rather than the sources that Rand relies on? So what? Again, are you saying that Google is not a monopoly?

Nobody can help you commented on Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update Again, Seems Bigger Now

This was a joke. Can you justify the existence of such service in 2019. This is a super niche market, nobody has mp3s these days. People moved on. You are in the wrong business. If you want traffic - buy ads!

I agree, they're not tackling the things that matter. They don't really know what questions to ask out of their bubble which is why they consulted the internet and found Fishkin.
