How Google Algorithm Changes Are Evaluated, Tested and Tried: Amit Singhal Explains | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you have ever been wondering whether Google ever makes algo decisions based on its own economic benefits, what Google Fellow Amit Singhal said at the recent opening keynote at SMX London should put your doubts to rest.


"Singhal was adamant: “no revenue measurement is included in our evaluation of a rankings change.


Listening to him explain how excites he gets about search improvements and how changes are evaluated, you realize there’s no spin here. He’s absolutely telling the truth."


(Source: SearchEngineLand)


In addition, Dr Singhal illustrated in detail what is the process that each new additional algorithm goes through, before being adopted. 


Interesting. Informative. 7/10

According to Search Engine Land, some domains saw a 94% loss in visibility, and others were left picking up the pieces after they lost 80% of their keyword positions.


Consider this graph by Sistrix, created to describe where mahalo.com’s keywords landed on Google search engine results pages (SERPs) before and after one of the Google algorithm updates:

PMD (Partial Match Domains) Targeted by Google Last Algo Updated

PMD (Partial Match Domains) Targeted by Google Last Algo Updated | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it
On the morning of June 26th, MozCast registered a record high temperature of 113 degrees. This is an initial investigation into the possible algorithm update, and a potential partial-match domain (PMD) connection.
Robin Good's insight:



Google has updated its algorithms again yesterday, and by looking at the amount of changes in the SERPs this does not look like something minor.


According to the research and analysis done by Dr Pete on the MOZ blog, the web sites that have been most affected are those that utilize in their domain name some of the keywords for which they are being searched for.

These are called PDM (partial domain matches) and data shows that these have all been strongly affected.


So, if you own a web site that utilizes some of your niche keywords in its name and have seen a sudden drop in traffic or earnings since yesterday, check out the thorough analysis that Dr. Pete has done and see for yourself what is really happening.


From the article intro: "If you follow our MozCast Google "weather" tracker, you may have noticed something unusual this morning – a record algorithm flux temperature of 113.3°F (the previous high was 102.2°, set on December 13, 2012). While the weather has been a bit stormy off and on since Penguin 2.0 and the announcement of 10-day rolling Panda updates, this one was still off the charts: "



Informative. Useful data. 8/10

"Based on how Google rolled out Penguin and Panda recently, I’m finding it’s common for webmasters to be confused about which algorithm update hit their websites.


Penguin 1.0 and the latest Panda updates were so close that it’s easy to believe you were hit by one, when in fact, it could have been the other.


Use the techniques I listed in this post to help you determine which update really hit your site..."
