Is Googlebomb Algorithm Change Affecting Your Site’s Search Engine Ranking?

January 29, 2007 by  

It’s quite unlikely according to Matt Cutts.

Apparently Google is performing updates more frequently these days. The data refresh become more frequent, roughly daily instead of every 3-4 weeks previously.

Matt took a look at 5 sites where people were asking about changes in ranking for their sites.

All those sites reviewed shared one thing in common. In an attempt to make money quickly, some sites forget about what value their sites are offering to their visitors.

If you are trying to get a good site up quickly ask yourself if you took any shortcuts. If you do, Matt recommends you to revisit those sections and augment them with different tools, contents, features etc.

It’s obvious why those sites reviewed by Matt dropped in their ranking – duplicate content, broken links, redirects, lack of content etc.

If your site ranking has changed recently, you might want to check this out.

My pagerank has dropped from 5 (for past 2+ years) to 4 🙁 None of the above reasons though, apart from perhaps I removed Adsense haha. But then Matt would say that’s not related.
