    I was reading an interview over at WebPro News, of Matt Cutt's where is was asked how often the algorithm changes. He stated that it was tweaked 450 times last year. I found that amazing.

    Yes they're making it think more like a human.

    Meaning Google now pays attention to site stickiness.

    Obviously a good content site will be sticky. Hence Google will rank it higher.

    That does make sense. It also means I'm going to start putting some videos or inline games up to keep people on the site.

    the line between blackhat / spammer / hacker is often already blurred.

    as blackhat is mostly automated procedures, why bother spamming places when you can break into vulnerable blogs and put your links on their homepage?

    I have the best Papua New Guinea web site, and I can only get to top of page two on Google. Amazes me that they can't see that and put it number one. I even have a PR higher than the sites before me.

    Can anyone explain this?

    Well, they have to. Webmasters these days are trying to manipulate ranking in search engine, so it does make sense for them to change the algo.

    The sites ahead of you have "Papua New Guinea" more often in the anchor text of their backlinks. Plus their sites might be older, carrying heavier domain weight.

    Solution: targeted links from authoritative domains.
