Google is quickly changing...

With the big buzz of Novembers fall within Google comes a newly
Did Google do something bad to our great placements?
No I don't think so and here's why.
While people are screaming for help and wondering what went
wrong, I've noticed a MASSIVE shift in page ranking.
If you look at top placements at the moment, according to
Scroogle, most of the ecommerce search terms got hit really
hard. A lot of the top 100 placements were vanishing and
Now on the other hand, less impressive and especially smaller
ranking sites have been bumped up top. I firmly believe this is
all because of Google's "refreshing" their memory and possibly
starting to take on web site ID's with 5 characters plus.
What I mean by that is the ability for Google to index more
than 3.2 Billion web sites. Adding another character to the
already large 4Id's deticated to each site indexed will allow
Google to add a whole other list of sites within their data-
Now I could be wrong on that one but here's another phenomenon
going on. I've been talking to other ecommerce web sites and
helping them gain better rankings. It's been a while since
they've had their Page Rank change within their site. Working
real hard as I instructed, they have followed all the rules
and attempted to boost their page ranks.
Up until now, nothing has changed and people are loosing their
ranks within Google since Novembers algorythim change.
Around a week ago I've been getting calls left right and
center about page ranks boosting like Iíve never seen.
The previous scare before this November change went something
like this. Google stopped indexing more than 3 levels within
your site. Ex. www.yoursite.com/level1/level2/level3
I affirm to you this: its pure baloney, more sites now have
better PR ratings within their entire site than ever before. I
believe that Google is rewarding most great resources online
before taking on more listings within their index.
As towards se placements, I also took a major hit for my better
search engine placements but a couple of days ago that started to
all change. It almost seems as though Google wanted to take out
the top placement companies in order to thoroughly crawl through
all their information before letting them get back in the game.
I say this because one of my top placements was sitting at #1
for a long time. Since this November change, it immediately
dropped to #181 and didn't move one single number for over 3
weeks. To my knowledge, that's a little strange. All of a
sudden, my site stats recorded Google browsing through
all my 600+ pages and presto, my site is back in the game,
just like that.
It seems to me that we're all just lined up to sign an
application for better search engine placements. The question
isnít if your site will get back in shape, it's a question of
when your number will be called.
Have a little faith and a little patience and you too will
rise again! Just keep doing what you've been doing all along
and don't worry about falling down. The ones who get back up
are always the ones on top in the end.
