Have you seen a drop in ranking as of this week? It could mean that you have been affected by the latest Panda update by Google. Since April of this year we have seen a rollercoaster ride for SEO firms with all of the tweaks that Google is doing to fight in the war on spam. The initial Panda update came out in February 24, 2011 and has affected about 35% of search queries.
Google announced another update to their search algorithm that will be affecting many results. They are reporting that the theory behind this update is to provide relevant information pertaining to most recent updates / events. Using their example, if you search then it is possible you are interested in the upcoming 2012 event versus the 1980 events.
Last night at approximately 10:30pm, we did a rank evaluation on one of our clients and found that their Google Pagerank (PR) increased from 0 to 3. After further inspection, several hundred websites saw a change in pagerank last night as well, more losing than gaining. Fishpunt.com advanced in it's internet authority from a PR 2 to PR 3, even one of our project sites advanced from a PR0 to a PR1.
Staying ahead of the curve as always, Google has created another useful tool called Knol. Knol is basically a platform of solid knowledge to be shared without all the garbage of spammers, or is it? The ability to post ads and the incentive of higher profit sharing from Google Adsense means more trash.
I've recently come across a video about how the changes in Google effect sponsored and organic listings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvSmGKrwR4c). The way Google has become the super-power of the internet domain, by controlling how internet advertising campaigns are handled on a daily basis.
