and......... its been a whole lot of whining on blogs and forums about sites getting deindexed and Google this and that and coming algo changes and how Google is unfairly messing with marketers yad yada yada!
Despite what people think I don't really do a lot that Google is thrilled with. I just don't do a whole lot of link spamming people's sites that are not my own. But heres my tip for a more relaxing SEO life
IF you are going to take the attitude that Google is your enemy and its you against Google then get out of SEO altogether. YOU WILL NOT WIN long term.
So we are at the point where even more than before Google might be going after sites with no good content and ESPECIALLY spun content with links in it ala networks that got deindexed.
So what? Change adapt. Give em some of what they want instead of whining - just read a fairly well known IM SEO literally cursing Matt Cutts - Yeah that'll help. :rolleyes:
Some people reading this right now are cranking out a few hundred dollars a month on software. Some buy WSOs every other day. Some ten fifteen fiver "gigs". IF content is now what is required, is an extra ten dollars (that you could recoup by canceling one of those subscriptions or buying to less gigs) for some decent content going to kill you? Taking more than ten minutes to figure out what kind of site you are going to put together rather than a one page blog is that going to kill you?
Again change and adapt.
and if you are going to do things that Google doesn't like and told you they don't like then be prepared - not angry and bitter when you are caught. You should have taken that into account.
Change - adapt work a little harder. Give them some of the content they want.
Complaining about Google demanding what it always said it wanted for their search engine is like going into a nudist camp and getting all indignant because they insist that you take off your clothes. IF thats where you want to be then you are going to have to blend in and give up some clothes at some time. Their property their rules.
Get better content and demand better links from your service providers - it aint that hard.
and for goodness sake stop claiming SEO is dead or dying because you have to put some content into what you do
