Big Daddy Results Hit My Browser.

    Big Daddy has finally hit my browser. Is it just about rolled out? What are the biggest changes you guys see and what is Google cracking down on with this new algo?

    As I said in another post, I am loosing placement for generic searches such as keyword and only finding my site in serps for keyword town or keyword town state.

    See a client has really been hit and when I look at her most useful keyword. When I look tytle, keyword, and description for number one SERP in that category see copmetition page is similar to her page in these aspects. Page rank for two pages similar. Off to look at backlinks.

    They are cracking down on something, possibly duplicate content. Google has been pretty good at catching stuff like that but now they look to have turned up the juice in that area.

    Not happy here at all. 3 sites taking a big dive due to Big Daddy. I got to say - Google is doing a bad job lately. I have been in favor of Google for years, but now the love is getting cold fast.

    I haven't noticed any difference at all - traffic is still steadily increasing for most of my sites.

    got a couple of sites out of the penalty box last week, probably not from bigdaddy tho, because the penalized sites weren't ranking at the test dc's prior to this update.

    i think i'm finally seeing less emphasis on old sites that haven't updated for a long time?

    lol. . .

    Smyrl, I have the exact opposite. I’ve lost all rankings for my interior pages but my HP has not changed (even during SH it maintained its rankings).

    In the past, 90% of my traffic came from complex terms (the long tail) such as “old red ford truck for sale in Twoegg Florida”

    I’m still hoping that the pages that went supplemental and were restored yesterday will get their PR back but with G who knows?
    [edit] btw Moz Gbot has quit crawling this morning for the first time in four weeks. It was hitting 50-80k pages a day and since this morning at 2:00am it's only been back 80 times. Wonder if something is getting ready to happen?

    I noticed a lot of drops with suplimental pages. Now mostly it is just the homepage that ranks for any terms. I also have a different situation. Google has began to index a mirror site of the site that got hit by big daddy. I wonder if the mirror site would be seen as duplicate content and that is the reason for the drop. If that is the reason then would adding the meta robots noindex help?

    Gee, and to think, I've done nothing but grow valid content, and produce nice clean pages for the search engines to spider, and my rankings have climbed greatly for all terms I target because of BigDaddy.

    I see so many people complain that they spent hundreds of hours on SEO and got worse ranks during an update, but they never stop to consider that maybe Google got smart and too much SEO is a bad thing now. My pages rank for terms that I don't even target, and we're talking #1 ranks on all major SE's -- all from just writing good, unique, and related content for the site.

    Pride preceedth the fall.

    If your content is that good I'm sure the scapers will find it. Wait until thousands of duplicate sites and tens of thousands of duplicate pages start poping up and then remember this post.

    there doesnt seem to much of a change in the ranking algo, i believe its more of a structural change.

    I first started seeing BD results around 4th and 5th of febuary it has been steadily rolling out since. I've started to see alot more BD stuff on google.co.uk this last week.

    Too late, its happened multiple times to me already. Not once has it bit me in the ass...yet. In fact, I've had competitors copy my entire website and change a few words to make it their own, yet they don't rank as highly as me still. I use a combination of good content, and good link strategy -- it's exactly what Google wants EVERYONE to do.
