How To Determine if Google’s Algorithm Changes are Aimed at You

February 28, 2011Domaining, Domainnamewire, google, google algorithm, SEO, UncategorizedComments Off on How To Determine if Google’s Algorithm Changes are Aimed at You

A handy guide to determine if Google is gunning for you.

Last week Google announced some changes to its algorithm that affect a whopping 12% of search results.

The target?

“low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful”

While some say this is aimed at so-called “content farms”, here are the warning signs that this change is aimed at your web site(s):

- You created your web site with the click of a button (or a few buttons)

- You didn’t create any original content for your web site

- Your web site asks questions but doesn’t provide answers — and is waiting for a “user” to generate the answer for you (ahem)

- When users do answer those questions, the answers suck (ahem)

- You developed a hundred sites in a weekend

- Although your web site presents existing information in a “unique” way, hundreds of other web sites have also tried to present that same information in a “unique” way

- Your web site is a splog

- Your content is similar to that found on other web sites; you just re-write it in a different way

- Your only plan for traffic generation is search traffic
