G'day gang :)

There's been a lot of hand-wringing and hypothesizing since Google lowered the boom on low-value, low-quality, "toxic digital waste" content in late February. Here are links to two excellent, useful articles exploring the effects of the "Farmer" algorithm update and what you can do about it.

Jennifer "Pot Pie Girl" Ledbetter has posted an excellent, well-researched and illustrated article on her blog about it today. For anyone concerned about what Google is trying to achieve and whom they're targeting, it's well worth reading. You'll find it at:

http://www.potpiegirl.com/2011/03/my-theory-on-the-google-algo-change/

The inimitable Dr Ken Evoy, founder of SiteBuildIt, has written an article on Allan Gardyne’s AssociatePrograms.com that's a MUST-read: http://www.associateprograms.com/articles/1032/1/

Jennifer and Ken are both friends and very savvy marketers. They're also two of the few people in the IM space that I recommend.

Thanks for the share.. Indeed content tycoons went down due to this Google Algo change but there a lot of webmasters who weren't in any unethical activity but they still got penalized.

yes, so many sites affect badly because of Google changed Algorithm. Even big sites like hubpages, Ezine etc also suffer.

The only change I noticed to my own Google status was an immediate drop in search results for john+counsel+profit+clinic from 5,400,000 before the algorithm changes to 4,700,000 immediately after the change, then a steady fall to 4,400,000 about a week later.

I just checked again (another week later) and it's now at 10,800,000 — so the news isn't necessarily all bad! *lol*

Sometimes you have to step backward in order to leap forward, y'know?

John

PS: Links from other sites now don't begin appearing until about page 12 of the SERPs. It used to be around page 3.

PPS: Just noticed that there's a HUGE discrepancy between SERPs in Google Chrome browser and Firefox browser. Firefox returns less than HALF the number of results delivered by Chrome.
Anyone know why there's such a massive difference?

I didn't notice any difference between chrome and Firefox...
And i just wants to add that the latest farmer update is (again) emphasis the need to always update your site/blog/forum with quality unique content, now more than ever.

Wayne,

Not sure why I'm seeing such massive differences in Chrome as opposed to Firefox, Safari and others, but they're real.

Here are three screen captures, all taken within a couple of minutes (the actual searches were done within seconds of each other — the extra time was in taking the screen captures). I've included the times on each screen capture.

Note that the number of results in Chrome has now climbed by a whopping 67% to 18+ million. The first irrelevant result appears on page 9 (one only) and the next ones appear on page 12.

Here are the results in Firefox.

Here are the results in Safari. (Almost identical to Firefox.)

Image

Here are the results in Google Chrome. (Very different results.)

Image

I can't dismiss this as a mere accident. Chrome is delivering 390% more SERPs.

Something is definitely going on here.

John

Yes — as I posted elsewhere today, Google results in other browsers seem to have finally caught up to Chrome.

On what specific technology can Google identify which is copied content from the original? With similar sites like ezinearticles, ehow, hubpages and so forth, they produce different outcome. Potpie girl had an in-depth research about this Google algo and worth reading.

Thanks for the share :D

The only one I can think of is date of publication. First in = best dressed!

This is the critical criterion in any copyright issue: date of first publication is prima facie proof of ownership.

I saw some difference in IE and Firefox which was also discussed in other blog. But when I checked it I didn't see any difference. If different browser is showing different result, what could this mean?

In Feb Google up[dated its algorithm which is commonly known as the Google Panda Farmer update, with this Google update Google ranking system want to provide high ranking to the website which has authority content, original content and they also want to drop ranking for the websites which has very poor back links and very low quality back links. There are many well known website which lost their ranking ranking because of this update only, Ezine article, Buzzle and hubpages are some well known websites which lost their ranking and traffic. There are many people which are searching for the tips to overcome from this update because Google is continuously in every 1.5 months but i think the best to prevent your website from his update is to keep your website up to date and use original content and get some quality back links only.

It's almost as if Google has it in for IMers. They make it more challenging to actually make a living. Maybe I just don't like change...lol
