Village Idiot commented on Another Google Search Algorithm Update Blip Yesterday?

Once you lose a keyword, after the update is completely over, expect 4 to 6 months for it to come back, if ever.

Jigar Gondalia commented on Another Google Search Algorithm Update Blip Yesterday?

We are experiencing the update from 13th February. We have around 50+ keywords ranking on top 3 they are dipping down and down till yesterday and today it was just 14 keywords in top 3. Some said they got the reversal in their traffic and ranking will we get the same? The big question is there....

Hey Berry, you should place a canonical on this post pointing to your last 85 posts about algo updates, because this is duplicate content.

FFS. This reminds me of a road I cycle on, all patches and nothing original remaining.

and pen commented on Google Explains Why Their Image Search Results Look Racist

Google needs to have an option to tag results that don't belong. They already ask people to correct their business contacts.

Duck duck go just doesn't track you. They use Google to get their results. Worse they don't even have all the full features Google has. I tried them but went back to Google.

You could care a lot less but don't because you care so much?

HarpMD commented on Google My Business Warning: Your Unpublished Business Profile Will Be Deleted

I've never found an answer on this one, but when it says, "will be deleted from your Google My Business account", does it just mean it will just no longer be controlled by your account or will the listing itself actually be deleted? I have a listing I claimed a decade ago as owner simply because Google had created it on its own and I wanted to hide it since it was incorrect. At the time, I believe that was the way you did it.

I don't think the goal here is to publish less. It's like making a crack rock that lasts forever. Barry's goal is to keep up coming back.

Scott Carey commented on Another Google Search Algorithm Update Blip Yesterday?

You should just pin a post at the top of this blog called "Google updates are continuous. Fluctuations can and will occur across any vertical and/or site type on a daily basis. Be vigilant." This would save you a ton of writing and publishing.

Pure greed. As if being a trillion dollar company is not enough. Google are turning into the Tyrell Corporation of tomorrow.

Bamsay commented on Another Google Search Algorithm Update Blip Yesterday?

I would say BERT's made Google a bit smarter and perhaps making my site drop because I've got old links from content that's not all that "great", compared to the content that's written nowadays, however the competitors that have taken my place build backlinks through keyword stuffing and inserting their anchors in an irrelevant way in content. They're rising right now while I'm dropping. My content's not the best but surely if content's a factor in the recent movements such websites shouldn't be the ones rising in the ranks.

Deacyde do hurtin commented on Another Google Search Algorithm Update Blip Yesterday?

If you don't think Google isn't reading this, and learning, then I have a plot on Mars and Venus as well as a quick flash offer on Mercury as well... Think, how 2factorauth works, constantly, changing, so you can't brute force a key. Why wouldn't Google do the same with SEO / SERPs updates? They are combatting not just the manipulation, but the SEOs in general who have pretty much, become some BADASS detectives...

Really? There doesn't seem to have been any change in the search that I target for well over a week. Perhaps two.

dewebkiller commented on Google Local Algorithm Update Starting February 14th

Now i got it why my keywords are not showing. Before i can see the result in inner pages of the local listing but recently they got disappeared even after working so hard. It may be the reason. Thanks for updating this great info.

Yeah, and the 3 certified requirement just forced a few smalls to make dummy Google accounts and have it pass all exams. Why hire a third employee just to get a badge?

Amanda commented on Google Remove URLs Status Expired After URLs Are Gone

what happens when I had requested a wrong URL to be removed and it shows status as "Removal expired"? How can we un-do it? Which means re-index the URL again which was by mistake submitted for removal and whose status shows "Removal Expired"

Jessica Fontana-Eddowes commented on Google Clarifies New Google Partner Program Performance Requirements

blown away by this comment.. Google Partners are for ADS - not for SEO. Learn what you're talking about before calling people crybabies. Optimization score is basically saying - how good of a GOOGLE lapdog are you being without having a brain of your own and actually CARING about results for your client. 3/4 of the recommendations they suggest don't work for my 110 clients. I'll be proud to NOT be a google partner if this is the standard they'll be holding their partners to.

Erik Van Hilten commented on Google Search Algorithm Ranking Update Early February 2020

Yes I think indeed this is not a Core Update. But to me something is complete wrong. Just look in Google Maps. Standard settings. Choice a keyword for example Plumber Amsterdam. Look very carefull and then switch on top rated. I got a very strange list of plumbers.

It's a sh*t show with Google right now. So much bouncing around it's impossible to have any stability with them.

Bill Scott commented on Google Local Algorithm Update Starting February 14th

That is one way to look at Shabbir, I agree about time on site. However convolution (blending) of organic and paid equals more paid clicks. Many people who use the web regularly do not click on ads like they used to. So viola mix it up. Desparate money grab for a company worth how many BILLions?!?

Jamie commented on Chatter Around Google Search Ranking Algorithm Update & Fluctuations

seems as though google are shutting some methods down in terms of indexing, with bulkaddurl closing and many others also recently followed, If you're still stuck in a pickle and want to try one out, I would recommend Express Indexer, they have been solid for me.
