    Google wouldn’t need a head of spam if they hadn’t caused this problem themselves. The web is full of crap because of their algorithms – which clearly have failed to pick out the most relevant content in response to an enquiry.

    Relying on somebody elses business model is suicidal anyway. We can only play by Google’s rules as its their playground.
    Good luck with your new marketing strategy! The irony of it is, if its a success, your Google ranking will no doubt improve as a side-effect.

    Well, I got online in 1994 and Google was still a few years away from existence. There was PLENTY of spam on the web before Google.

    I’m not sure I remember :-) You’re probably right. I’m probably just reflecting on the fact that I was sent some content for my blog which had the sole purpose of promoting a link. The post made barely any sense at all – like a lot of content :-)

    I wish they’d give us a little more room to wiggle and not be so strict about it. Many of the updates affected great sites that didn’t deserve to bit hit. There is a free tool that you can use to see how the Google updates affected you over time http://fruition.net/seo/google-penalty-checker-tool-launches/ There’s probably things you didn’t even realized hit you.

    Ce matt, il n’arrête donc jamais…dans l’intérêt des internautes ou de GG ?

    I am much more concerned with the data than the number of release. Just look at how many comments on this are arguments over the release number!

    There are more ways to get traffic and backlinks to your site than simply being on the first page for a variety of search queries – especially when starting a new site. In fact, I’d say that Google only makes up about 30-40% of my traffic across all my sites. This is a good thing in my book.

    Obviously this is splitting hairs at this point, but if Google calls it Penguin 2.0 – chances are that’s eventually what everyone else will be calling it. Sticking to 4 is just going to confuse your readers. Just my opinion.

    Your first mistake was relying on Google for your traffic. Sure, it’s good quality traffic – but any time you rely on a single source for most of your income you’re standing on a sandy foundation.

    Hilarious Rando because I have been saying that to others since all this Panda, Penguin stuff over the last year and half. You will be singing a different tune when your site gets hit (no matter how wonderful you think it is). We thought we were immune to any update too because we never take part in buying links, selling links, or any other link swapping. All posts 1500 words or more by experts in their field.

    My 9th we got hit HARD.

    Your turn will come.

    How much take time for penguin.update… lol :P

    Yeah something did change in Google this week, I noticed it. I’m hoping that this Penguin won’t be too much of a hit. Not that I’m out spamming links or anything, but it still makes me nervous.

    Really we all are seeing some negative effects on our SERPs and I really wanted to know what are unnatural ways that we should stop working on it.
