What Google is Doing.

Rak asked 1 year ago
I could be “Captain Obvious” here for laying this down, but I think this is what I think Google is doing, or heading towards.

I think what Google is doing, is giving power to the people to decide what gets ranked highly in the SERPs based on what is currently popular.

So if I were to create a new post on my website, and then 40-100(or more?) people social bookmark it, it would appear highly in the SERPs while it is trending.

Or .. hang on.. isnt this already happening with news articles?

What I read recently was that sites that rely on ‘news articles’ are getting hammered because they look like ‘link farms’ to the mindless feeding machine that never gets full googlebot (I guess 0’s and 1’s have no calories) and the reason- new alga update

I’ll tell you this googlebot is munching up (or crawling) my sites right now

Isn’t this what happens anayway? Social bookmarks count as links so more links equal better visibility? I reckon Google would try and steer away such sites that people can manipulate just for links which SEOs have been doing for years.

Someone from Google contacted me, and wanted your phone number.

Apparently they have been keeping tabs on you, they’ve been watching you via satellite, and google street view… now they are installing handbag cam.

The things you keep in your handbag *shakes head*
