Google Launches Update Targeting Webspam In Search Results

Discussion in 'Google' started by jackPeterson, Apr 25, 2012.

    Google has announced that it is releasing a new search algorithm that it hopes will better catch people who spam its search results or purposely do things to rank better that are against Google’s publishers guidelines. Going live today, Google says it will impact about 3% of search queries.

    There are so many sites effected, and ranking badly down. Did you see a drop in your rankings ?

    Seems like many people are affected, look like a MAJOR change. Does anyone know details about the new algorithm?

    LOL, this f***ing SE went totally crazy...
    Along all the talking about content and quality...bla-bla, now they put on top an empty site rofl.
    Their results were crappy since the first panda update with garbage sites on first page, while others even such as uefa's official site were temporarily nowhere...
    They are really ruing the web. I mean not just our sites, but the results for the people who are actually looking for some quality info/service. Pity...
    Good there are still people using other SE's like yahoo, yandex, bing....
    As someone said in searchengineland - maybe they are trying to make webmasters use adwords with all those fluctuations of the SERPs.

    I think, in general, all the recent results of google are one HUGE bug...the entire SE is a bug in my opinion :p
    ...and these rankings for those keywords are just one example from millions.

    Yes, our some sites ranking drop from first page to Google 5-6 pages, its a major impact about search queries, not only 3%
