Before and After and Internet Marketers’ Response to Google’s Content-Farm Algorithm Change

Here are some responses to Google’s latest algorithm change from internet marketers, the people who were mainly using the content farms and article directories.

  • “I’ve got a huge amount of data on thousands of domains / keywords now and I’ve actually found that a good amount of ecommerce sites that don’t have much text content but are well put together have received a big boost.”
  • “The article directories on the other hand, they’re down an average of 35 positions per keyword. It’s not going well for them.”
  • “I just took a HUGE hit. Down from $350/day average to $15 so far today (half way through the day.)”
  • “It’s going to be an update that cleans up some of the crap out there. Then we find ways around it, and the cycle starts over. Good thing is, a lot of the newbies are going go to be weeded out so it’s good for us.”
  • “All google is going to do is devalue the power of the link from the article directories, but it cannot punish the site thats linked to it unless its from a seriously suspect site. Think about how easy it would be to sabotage competitors if you could create a ton of shit links using poor content and you just spam the web with it.”
  • “Onsite SEO is becoming more important again and internal linking structure says a lot about the site. Some basic tweaks I have made to my sites have made a world of difference to my rankings, not to mention more links to pages on my sites within content itself
  • Forums, both profiles and posts, are as important as they ever were
  • Directories have become a waste of time
  • Outbound links to high PR sites are actually beneficial and add some level of credibility to your site as an information resource.- More weight to credible Web2.0 and social networking sites”
  • “To be fair to Google, they are extremely effective at fighting spam. They do try their best, but an anti-spam measure can’t have a measurable negative effect on SERP quality across the board so a lot of stuff that seems easy to filter falls through the cracks. It’s not nearly as much as it used to be though. It gets significantly harder every year.”
