Me commented on Dual Stack IPv4/6 Does Not Help You Rank Better In Google Search

How many web sites are actually hosted by ISPs? I have connected many to carriers and typically a web site is hosted in a data centre and the web site owner arranges for their own connection to the net. However, in some instances, the data centre may provide addresses and Internet connection. So, it's not up to an ISP, but what the site owner arranges with some carrier. And yes, I have been in some data centres owned by an ISP and the web site owner still arranges for their own connection. The data centre just provides space & power, just like any other.

Rick Cable commented on Google Search Algorithm Ranking Update On September 23rd

Pretty quiet from what I'm seeing on a large site with lots of local / regional sub domains. I typically see ups and downs by region more than anything these days. Interesting to see it in the server logs and correlate it in GSC.

Thanks. Similar pattern with that. Regains of losses around that time. Same time that Discover traffic dropped to zero.

marie commented on Google Search Algorithm Ranking Update On September 23rd

mind sharing if you get Discover traffic and whether you also started seeing a dip in that from around 18 Sep? And if you did, seeing any signs of it returning yet? Noticing a pattern with a few sites now that the sensors are spiking again,

piset chokwattana commented on Google Search Algorithm Ranking Update On September 23rd

It's not a core update of google algorithm. Not real time ranking. Google indexing (update cache) very slow (1 - 2 Week(s)). Google not fix a quality content (quality page). We can see low quality site on first page.

My sites got a small boost. Wonder if its the fixes that i done (swap js to css, remove unnecessary references, put js code in main not .js file) or just that i got a boost from the update...

Bill Scott commented on Google Testing More Spacious Search Results Again

The Numbnuts at boo--gle probably used a user scroll study to figure out the optimal pixel spacing to push more organic content beneath the fold resulting in more ad clicks and “giving” away less organic click throughs. Please let’s kick this boo—gle Antitrust case into high gear. No Fines, We want to see Jail time for these jack-arses!

Andy b commented on Google Search Ranking Volatility Continues But Is There An Update?

No, I think you may be the idiot. I have dozens of highly researched and informative articles that were ranked very high. Most if not all have now been trumped by pages that contain 5-6 lines of text and spam multiple pop ups when you open the page. Can you please tell me how google has produced the best search results there? It isn’t just the fact that it has overtaken my articles, it has overtaken all my competitors as well who also have written quality articles just like my own. Google is a con

Robert Cerff commented on Google Search Ranking Volatility Continues But Is There An Update?

So the tools went mental, but no change in traffic. So basically nothing changed except perhaps how the tools could interact with Google. Interesting, but tools are just that, tools. They're not Google.

Many SEOs are doing GMB listing from their account for clients and as a result, it happens.

peppy commented on All The Google Search Fact Check Guidelines

Dumb idea... Want to know something cute? Search for "fact check did Biden withhold billion dollars from Ukraine", all these so-called "non-biased fact check" sites (like politifacts.org, politifact.com, snopes, Washington Post, NY Times, etc - claiming they are "neutral") said it's false, but they just ignore the video of Biden himself admitting he did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXA--dj2-CY . Biden actually said he withheld a billion dollars unless Ukraine fired the prosecutor investigating his son's company... but let's just ignore that, because... Trump! So all you have to do is source/cite fake "facts" from a huge horde of high ranking liberal "journalists" and "fact checkers", and that "fact" will be deemed legit by Google, all other differing facts will be marked as "false"? The other condition "Websites for political entities (such as campaigns, parties, or elected officials) aren't eligible for this feature.", but a fake news website posing as "journalism", like NY Times or WAPO, which is clearly a leftist wing of the Democrat Party, will be eligible to declare what is "fact" or not. Really Dumb idea for Google to get involved with fact checking politics. I cannot emphasize that enough.

The Truth is Out There commented on Google Search Ranking Volatility Continues But Is There An Update?

if you think Google are squeaky clean then you are definitely the idiot, and clueless to what is happening. Googles SE is becoming a joke. And we dont need to make any of our sites or businesses better in any way.

you're an idiot if you think this is how they operate. Google knows if they don't produce the best results that someone else will. Get your head out of your butt, stop playing a victim, and make your site better.

The Truth is Out There commented on Google Search Ranking Volatility Continues But Is There An Update?

Googles "algorithm" "updates" are now designed with one thing in mind, to work out how much site owners are worth to google, with regards to how much money they can get out of the site owners. Hence why we see "crap" sites etc in top ranking positions for certain keywords, because google know these "crap" sites are less likey to spend money with google, and will also force decent businesses down the rankings in a hope that will have to now spend with google It's a digital version of the mafia's protection scam - if you dont pay up we will destroy your business. So basically Google is the Digital Mafia. They definetly need breaking up asap, as they are destroying 100,000s of business and jobs worldwide. In a time of uncertainty with jobs due to the pandemic, it is very Evil and Shameful of Google !!

Google has become as shady as a 3rd tier search engine. It only has one goal make money and ethics be damned. If you know something about affiliate marketing Google is the super affiliate for their parent alphabet soup company and WE are just the pawns who create the content. Google Ads they want to take complete campaign control. Google organic shrinking it to nothing zero clicks lmao NICE. I am waiting for the GMB reputation management service. Antitrust? Send me to Washington I will make sure they get jail sentences instead of fines!
