What Makes This Change a Different One: How Google+ Could Kill Google Search Business

What Makes This Change a Different One: How Google+ Could Kill Google Search Business | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

Nathan Safran writes at Search Engine Watch:

"There have been numerous instances in the past where users have been up in arms about the latest Google change, insisting they were moving on to other search engines.


Panda, while painful for many publishers ultimately proved itself to improve search results relevancy.


Google Instant and Preview brought with them cries of "SEO is Dead!" and vows to move on to greener pastures. All the while the needle hasn't budged on Google's market share.


But what makes this time different is this is the first time the credibility of their core search results are being called into question.


Without question, social is an important part of how online users will consume and spread quality content.


But it has to be integrated in a manner that doesn't degrade core search functionality, or worse, sully searcher trust in what is still the most utilized search engine in the world.


Because this, more than anything Google's core competitors can do to them, could prove itself to be the tossed pebble that brings the mighty giant to its knees."


Interesting, informative. 8/10

The Post-Panda Age: How To Build A Quality Website In 2012 -  Direct From Google | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

I hear a lot of webmasters complain day in and day out about all the changes that Google constantly makes to its algorithm and how they affect our search engine placement.

 

Let me break it to you: it’s not all about what Google has done and will do to update its algorithm.

 

It’s about what you SHOULD BE doing.

 

I am sure we all can agree that Google’s ultimate goal is to help people find the most relevant and highest quality sites in Google’s search results (whether they are any good at it is not the question). They are not putting out all these updates just to mess with you...

Thanks, I'm glad, that you like it! The RSS plugin works also on wordpress.com? I have tried to install some plugins several months ago but without success... ;-( Yes, I posted it manually to test Billboards.

No worries Martin perhaps I can eventually set us an RSS myself to import your feed, but for now you can always post occasionally when you like curation is very quick, and also feel free to submit any articles you write as a guest post.

OK, thank you Tom. I will do so during the next few weeks and then we can decide how we will proceed. A great day.
