Check Your Google Rankings Because Google Have Rolled out Another Algorithm Update.
Oh no, I hear you mutter (or cry in anguish perhaps!).
Here we go again – another mess up of the rankings perhaps?
Another round of dumping of our webpages?
Have you checked your site’s visitor stats today??
Here’s the facts from the horses mouth about this search engine update which was rolled out yesterday – 24th April 2012:
I popped on over to Jon Leger’s forum to check out what he’s seeing.
For the query: make money online (110,000 global monthly Google searches), there’s this site ranking top 10…
Huh? There’s no content on it!!
Actually, here’s my own search results for when I did the “make money online” search in Google…
Can you see my blog in 10th position for a post that I shared with you about a week ago?
LOL! Google loves me!
Obviously the results are biased in favour of “me”, hence what I’m seeing there. But you can see my mug, which is thanks to my recent work with Google Plus.
What else is showing up in Google search that should not be there?
Search for “new shoes” and this site comes up at or around number 2 in Google US…
Look at the image below and you see what this site is about…

Something to do with “the four ‘P’s’ of marketing”. What’s this got to do with new shoes?
Anyway, I could rattle on and on about the current state of search results in Google. And all the while, really good sites are being thrust down the rankings whilst we get shoddy nonsense in return.
Makes you wonder will Google ever get it right?
And it makes you also wonder what hope have we got for ranking our own webpages high in search when we’re seeing these irrelevant (plainly pointless) search results.
Briefly onto other matters.
I’ve finally managed to get a video “in the bag”. I’ve filmed a short review type of thing for Backlinks Genie which, if you are remotely interested, you can see on my Backlinks Genie Review page.
The video is far from perfection but right now that does not overly concern me. Just the fact that I managed to get a video uploaded on YouTube is quite a feat in itself.
I’ll be creating many more videos from now onwards (I bet you can’t wait!!) – success begets success, right? LOL!
And finally, I got together with the guys at AdSenseFlippers.com last night and we did a poddie podcast which was quite a laugh. I’ll let you know when that will be live on their website when its live on their website, which should be sometime early next week I think.
