Site feedback for 4-5 sites

Completely independent of the recent algorithm to minimize the impact of Googlebombs, we continue to do data pushes on a near-daily basis where some people can see their rankings change:

I said to expect those (roughly monthly) updates to become more of a daily thing. That data refresh became more frequent (roughly daily instead of every 3-4 weeks or so) well over a month ago. My best guess is that any changes people are seeing are because that particular data is being refreshed more frequently.

Some people have been asking for more info about possible reasons for ranking changes. I wish I had time to give site-specific advice to every webmaster, but I’m sorry to say that I can’t. But this morning I took an hour or two and looked at 4-5 sites where people were asking about changes in ranking for their sites. I wrote up my comments and advice for those sites, which sits in a huge comment right here.

If you’ve seen ranking changes for your site recently, I hope that some of the feedback on those sites will be more widely helpful and give a few areas for people to check out on their sites.

  1. Matt,

    I just your comment and it look like with dfw you are referring to one of my site but Matt do you think I deserve a last position in SERP for “dallas new home” I have load of information regarding traffic, new road construction project, school information, private schools, sat scores, doctors, area comparision, property tax information and lot many do you think I deserve a last position in SERP after this. If you still think my site does add any value to dfw customers then I will again get some feedback from my customers.

    Regards

  2. Hi Matt,

    I was wondering, on a completely seperate topic here, why you have a page up at mattcutts.com with links to your blog and not just a 301 redirect or whatever?

    Thanks, and nice blog.

  3. Matt,

    Is the goal of this frequent refresh to have up to date copy of the blogs and news sites? If yes, Google was already the king in these sites (blogs, news sites. etc.) in terms of ranking and having almost up-to-date copy.

  4. Matt:

    Does google give any pagerank to links out of google docs? I am assuming blocking this would require an algo update? I have blogged examples of people using google docs for spam here:

    http://blogs.tech-recipes.com/davak/2007/01/17/google-docs-being-used-for-spam/

    Thanks as always.

  5. I highly suggest that other “SEOs” spend a day or two trying to answer questions in Google Groups. You will surely go insane but learn a lot about how people like Matt must feel on a daily basis. Having even nerves must be a job requirement at Google cuz it’s really easy to piss webmaster off eh Matt? Wow!

    ;-o

  6. The question is, why are we seeing HUGE fluctuations in these daily data-pushes? Sites disappear then reappear two weeks later. To me, data pushes shouldn’t provide such HUGE disparity in ranking results or they should be deemed as ‘inefficient’; as if Google is still trying to ‘work out some things’…..

  7. Frank, I honestly leave it that way as a test bed. When the crawl/index people need a guinea pig to test canonicalization/redirect/dupe stuff, they can beat up on my site. :)

    Davak, Google Docs don’t get any “free” PageRank from Google; someone would have to get incoming links to a doc on their own.

    Aaron Pratt, I’m sure people get angry/frustrated with me some of the time (witness the SEORefugee cartoon, for example). But on the other hand, web sites represent the time and effort that people put into them, and it’s natural to want the best for your website. I understand that a lot more in the last year or two as I’ve been a webmaster.

  8. possibly, data refreshes are calculating the ongoing results of adding new back links and their anchor text – - – since those are
    iusually the only SEO thing that changes in most sites.

    With the exception of Blogs and Forums – most Webpages do not change that frequently to justify any noticeable fluctuations in rankings.

    So, as new baclinks are spidered and cached, they are being calculated.

  9. >So, as new baclinks are spidered and cached, they are being calculated.

    How soon (and how often) those are reflected in the SERPs is probably one of the most important things we could ever possibly know, and probably never will with any precision (with good reason). Sometimes it seems like it can take a ton of IBLs to have any kind of impact on a page’s rankings, but it isn’t impossible that only one or two properly done links from on-topic pages on “trustworthy” sites are what can really have the most impact..

  10. “Davak, Google Docs don’t get any “free” PageRank from Google; someone would have to get incoming links to a doc on their own.”

    Thanks for your time, Matt.

    I just wanted to say how impressed I am you take the time to answer questions like those Matt. Taking a look at your comment, I can’t even understand why the posters would originally complain without taking another look at their own site. Your taking the time to point this out in an EXTREMELY polite manner is most impressive; I think I would have done a much poorer job at that :)

  12. I still don’t understand why my site has dropped off the rankings while the #1 site is a dead site that redirects to a server administration page. Where is the daily update there? I have new unique content EVERY day that is highly targeted to my core audience.. This is not just an algorythm change. I was #2 for Japanese Toys, now – i’m not even on the list and #1 has been DOA for 6 months.

  13. diego w.

    I saw that the new changes allows more spam results that before, i assume that you guys at google are working on it, if not i can help with some nice examples, obviuslly with sports gambling, because i work sports gambling and pills, the PPP u know!
    thanks

  14. I want to interview SEORefugee on my blog and try to figure out how much of his monetized splog network the Google algorithm took out. The cartoons are extremely good but the anger and having multiple “Evil Matt” sites is a little over the top.

  15. Hi, Matt,
    First time poster here, so I want to start with a thank you for putting a human face on the Big Search Engine in the Sky (Google, of course). Sometimes when you mess up something and the BSEITS let you know it ever so gently by moving you to the back of a 1M link long line, it’s nice to know that there is actually a human heart in there somewhere.

    That said, I think I have done something to my site that has cause it to be cast into outer darkness…and I think I know what. I had rearranged my pages to show categories such as restaurants, and to show the sub-tags of destination like Chips & Salsa or Mexican food. Naturally, both of those links would show similar/same restaurants. This, evidently, is not good. 2 questions…

    1) Will a rel=nofollow on those links prevent a “penalty” for the content of those pages?
    2) I’ve been in outer darkness for going on 2 months…is this eternal? or is there grace at some point?

    Thanks again,
    BB

  16. Hi, I and I imagine millions of others received the Google Guys email this morning which warned against taking shortcuts in buying one way links. Anybody with any common sense will know that buying thousands of links will affect rankings adversely. However we write many articles on the subject of property investing. These all have links. We use the phrase “property for sale” and “properties for sale” in our anchor text. In line with your post, we notice that we change position in a minor way daily, however last week we noticed we dropped from between 25-30 to 900. Other phrases such as “cheap houses” we still rank in the mid 30′s. Should we avoid putting our link in the articles we write – are they affecting our ranking adversely??

  17. Al

    Matt,

    My rankings have recently dropped as well as a few of my competitors and we’ve all been replaced by sites which look to be gaming the system with what some have called link spamming – stuffing key words in the link text.

    The change in rankings does not make any sense as the site pages that have gained do not have any significant outside links coming in. The vast majority of their links are internal and as I said key word stuffed. Is Google aware that this is going on and, if so, does it plan on fixing the problem.

    If you would like specific details, please direct email me.

    Thanks for your reply from a fellow Kentuckian!

  18. Why get rid of googlebombs?

  19. Josh, try getting a new domain name with japanesetoys somewhere in the url. Seriously.

  20. Site Visitor

    Ron Gupta:

    I’m sorry, but just looking at the Dallas New Homes site frontpage makes me think “spam”. The link block at the bottom of the page, for starters. There are other things that turn me off. If I was a site visitor looking for quality info, I’d leave and go elsewhere.

  21. I noticed substantial positive ranking changes in 27 of my seo clients who focus heavily on creative and meaningful content. The inbound linking bureaucracy seems to be settling down in favor of more social links. The changes look good for the internet community as a whole.

  22. I assume this update could also help newer sites–instead of “only” worstening the rankings of the older sites.

  23. Matt,

    I’m not really sure where to post this, but I guess it fits within the falling rankings category. I noticed in my Google Sitemaps web crawl tool that my top ranked page for the past 2 months is an affiliate coded link that has is a noindex, and when I do a site:domain.com query my index page is nowhere to be found, but I have tons of other pages included in the index. This page used to rank in the top 10, and now is gone. Doesn’t this seem strange if not downright buggy?

    It looks like Google may be putting more weight on the noindex page versus the true index page.

    Any help or advice would be most appreciated.

  24. Matt, you asked us to notify you of non-homepage listings for .com TLDs in local country listings. I reported this to you before, but I think you maybe got distracted (maybe you are in the UK this week?)

    We are still seeing a non-homepage listing in “pages from the UK” Google.co.uk for our UK-hosted Explore the Taj Mahal website; search [taj mahal]

    This is a .net domain, not a .com

    Our SERPs for other national local googles, and for google.com seem fine. Only the UK listing seems to be wrong.

    We do see some volatility in the rankings, so we know that the SERPs are being updated regularly, but wish our Taj homepage would show instead of the typical “exit page” for our site.

    Our other UK-hosted websites (most with TLD = .net) DO show the homepage, just not the Taj site. On some occasions (1 day in 10) we do see the homepage for the Taj site, but this does not last very long.

    Thanks
    William

  25. Matt,

    I am impressed that you took the time to answer those people. From lurking in the Google Webmaster Help groups and seeing endless people complain about drops in ranking, I know that the majority of complaints are pretty clueless. Just like those 5 sites you investigated, most drops are due to obvious problems and overall low-quality websites.

    But there *are* some high-quality content-oriented sites that have been trashed by algorithm updates (or something else?) I wish you took the time to investigate *those* sites, not the mortgage or insurance sites of this world, sites that often received the bare minimum amount of work necessary to become a cash cow.

    Maybe you could setup a kind of community process where people could vote on which websites deserve further investigation by a Googler, the websites for which a drop is *really* mystifying.

  26. Hey Matt,

    I had a seo company work for me but the best results they provided were ranks of the high one hundreds. I looked over and saw they violated a lot of Google’s rules. I fixed the site to be 100% Google friendly but my pagerank went from a 3 to a 2. I cant see my site for any the keyword serps i want. What am i doing wrong?

  27. Are these data pushes going on across all data centers simultaneously? Also, do you have any juicy details or inside information on the massive new data center being built near Lenoir, NC?

  28. Hi Matt,

    I am facing some strange issue with my site. My site / blog was on PR5 for quite sometime but with this recent PR change, the rank changed to PR0. Many of the inside pages still hold PR but I have no idea what went wrong with the home page.

    It is basically a personal blog with some of the movie reviews I have written / I write.

    I would be glad if you can just check it up and tell me if the PR0 is because of some bug or there is something really wrong with my site?

    I can see some trafic changes today.. traffic is reduced by approx 50%. I would be really greatful if you can check the things.

    Thanks
    Deep

    P.S. Do let me know if you want me to email this to Google directly.

    Matt I read the above site critiques. Question is what do the shop comparison sites offer for information to a user.

    The only website on this search “number 10 in the datacenter I am viewing” is interlinking to other sites they host. Footer

    Not impressed with the data push or refresh as some are in areas especially e-commerce.

    Some areas are spot on but on the ecommerce side there are some issues.

    There are just to many shop sites offering nothing to a user but going to another site just as the one described above but

    My question is what makes them different and rank so well??

  30. I am not so much worried about page rank, however I am trying to figure out how my blog has a page rank of 5 and I do not get any traffic from google. Except people visiting my blog through google image search. I receive only 30 visitors per day as of right now, have a page rank of 5 and I write original content.

    Matt could you explain this one to me publicly or privately which ever. Now I know I have changed the focus of my blog in the last month, but it is still baffling me to no end!

    I have tried just about everthing. :)

    Or if any one else wants to give me a hand I would love it!

    Al:

    I see the same thing you do related to my site. Most of the link spam is via shorter URL services. I report a few but after data refresh the same spammer is back but with a new URL redirect that stuffs keywords.

  32. Kirby

    Looks like recip links are paying off for many again.

    The new local map results also leave something to be desired, or else just too easy to spam. Is there a “tell us why these results suck” link anywhere?

  33. <lol>OMG!
    I can’t believe that you committed one of the cardinal sins of web
    design by putting a click

  34. Hi Matt:

    The result from google search API (old SOAP interface) is different from what we can see on actual google results. Is this algorithm updates reflect in datacenter which APIs hit as well?

    This issue is not after googlebomb update, i can see this issue (diff result for api query and webquery) even before. Can you shed some lights on this.

  35. Matt,

    Can’t you find a way to distingush accidents from serious abuse? My site got penalized for unvisible links that I created by accident (messed up with span tags and accidentaly changed the color of few links on white background to white).

    Now I have to wait for weeks for my reinclusion request to go through, and my business is suffering because of a stupid mistake. The worst thing is that forgiveness is not automatic if you fix it. Googlebot doesn’t even visit me any longer.

    Mario.

  36. Oh my, i REALLY hope this UK index weirdness is only temporary. I have 4-5 sites which when you do a site: search on google only bring back the homepage and loads of supplement results (some cached from as far back as Oct-Nov 2006!). What is happening out there in google land, my site traffic (and sales) on two e-commerce sites have dropped to practically 0 over the past week.

    As far as i can see the results are slightly different depending on the google search ip used but still all follow the same format: homepage listed, the rest purely suplemental results and yet i’ve had 3000+ googlebot hits this month!! :(

  37. i’m getting the same weirdness as 3Formed as well.
    site:mysite returns just 1link (out of 350,000 indexed) , and i’m in the uk as well.

  38. relying on froogle for now, least that brings some traffic to the right place… maybe theres a bug with the site: command, its hard to tell…I’ve found more people with the same issue on various forums but no answer!

  39. the “site:” command has definitely changed – i’m seeing subdomain pages if i do a site:www

    do a site:www.yahoo.com to see this in action.

    i’m not sure what the implications of this are.

  40. I’ve been trying random site addresses with the site: command seems to be happening for pretty much every site i looked at thats UK based, this must be some sort of bug or work in progress….. MATT?

  41. …another thing, lots of times you go to google.co.uk your preferences arent remembered, just like when you use different data centers to look at results meaning…somethings up, looks like google.co.uk is redirected to google.com whatever you do?!

  42. interesting – one site (not ours) that i manage, is made up of nothing but sign up pages to various email newsletters – no it aint spam. its more financial stuff. stock tips, share trading tips, daytrading and such like. its pretty legit and follows all the opt-in/opt-out rules. theres about 100 sign up pages on there.

    THATS now showing 1 result for the site: command.

    which makes me wonder – is it an anti-spam measure thats just caught a load of legit sites that might “look” a bit spammy. admitedly , some of the sign up pages in question do look spammy , as in they use similar spam language (like “sign up now to get our stock tips!!!”… yeah – i know. i’ve had words with the client repeatedly…)

    so thats what i’m wondering – is Google now using a Spamassassin style bayesian filter to filter out spammy content algorithmically?
    And in – could they possibly be re-using anti-spam filtering tech to process spidered web pages?

    I would guess so. And secondly, I would also guess that Google will trawl through the ones inadvertently dropped out of the index and maybe readmit them in – possibly a manual process , or maybe they’re trying to figure this one out at the moment.

    As for 3Formed pointing out that it appears to be UK only – well, that would make sense. Roll out this anti-spam filtering in one datacenter first. see how it works – tweak it. and get it right before rolling out worldwide.

  43. “joe Said,
    February 1, 2007 @ 9:38 am ”

    i remember Google having a similar problem with a major refresh – might have been the start of last year or the year before, when suddenly price comparision sites pushed to the top for loads of searches. it was awful.

    like , searching on a nokia phone , would result in the nokia.com product page being on something like page 10 of the results.

    however, now its fixed
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=nokia+770&btnG=Search&meta=

    so that makes me guess that the algorithm isnt covering the search that you mentioned:
    http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=t&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLJ,GGLJ:2006-30,GGLJ:en&q=bioplex+Nutrition+Undenatured+Whey+Protein

    and admittedly , that search you pointed out doesnt have a corporation name in it , or a corporate product in it, so different rules apply, maybe.

    i think we’re seeing something similar happening here.

  44. Googlebots still going crazy tho, looks like some kind of massive re-indexing strategy, lets just hope it all works out soon…. :( my my

  57. I also can’t understand what google wants to do

  58. More importantly, if the malware is detected automatically why isn’t the absence of the malware also detected and the site reincluded automatically?

  59. raywolf, once someone wants to come and appeal something, it makes sense to ask a human to check into it in more detail. We rely on StopBadware because of their expertise for the appeal. They’d be the people to ask about how long appeals take (I think they shoot for a decision within 10 business days, maybe?).

  95. The result from google search API (old SOAP interface) is different from what we can see on actual google results. Is this algorithm updates reflect in datacenter which APIs hit as well?

  98. Some fascinating reviews of the sites there. The reasons for ranking changes, to me, seems to be a very complex thing. There’s no easy answer. I only wonder how Google manage to keep up – in other words, they (or you) must have a very complex system that analyzes and takes not of all these differences and algorithms etc. Very complex stuff- yet very interesting!!

  99. thanks Haha. Yes, this is why I support buying and ripping a DVD, and just using a divx encode to watch the movie. No previews, no menues. Nothing. It’s adorable.

  101. I said to expect those (roughly monthly) updates to become more of a daily thing. That data refresh became more frequent (roughly daily instead of every 3-4 weeks or so) well over a month ago. My best guess is that any changes people are seeing are because that particular data is being refreshed more frequently.

    it will also allow you to store the results into a variable by simply using the “name” attribute. This variable can then be written to disk and used later at the developer’s discretion.

  107. With the exception of Blogs and Forums – most Webpages do not change that frequently to justify any noticeable fluctuations in rankings.

  108. I’ve been trying random site addresses with the site: command seems to be happening for pretty much every site i looked at thats UK based, this must be some sort of bug or work in progress…..

  112. I am not so much worried about page rank, however I am trying to figure out how my blog has a page rank of 5 and I do not get any traffic from google.

  113. I would guess so. And secondly, I would also guess that Google will trawl through the ones inadvertently dropped out of the index and maybe readmit them in – possibly a manual process , or maybe they’re trying to figure this one out at the moment.
