Fear Of Google Has People Reconsidering Links

Posted on: August 31st, 2012 by Lina

Cited from Webpronews : We recently published an article called “Links Are The Web’s Building Blocks, And Fear Of Google Has Them Crumbling“. This was about the panic Google has caused among webmasters with its messages about links. It’s a panic that has led to many webmasters requesting to have links removed from sites that they would otherwise find valuable, if not for fear that Google will not like them and hurt their rankings.

I noticed a post in WebmasterWorld today, that expresses this point to perfectly. The title of the post says it all: “New link to my site worries me — but it’s a good link!” Senior member crobb305 writes:

Got an unsolicited citation from a media source but they used anchor text that I have been penalized on. FUD! Should I ask them to change it? By doing that I make a natural link unnatural, and Googlebot will detect that change (obvious tinkering). Nevertheless, I do have an OOP and received the infamous link warnings about 5 months ago.

I hate it that we have to live with this type of fear.

This person has been a member of WebmasterWorld since 2002, so they’ve clearly been in this world for quite a while. Yet here they are concerned that a completely natural link might draw negative attention from Google. The person is even wondering if they should go out of their way to make the link unnatural to please Google. How’s that for irony? Sadly, it’s highly likely that plenty of other webmasters are thinking similar thoughts.

It probably doesn’t help that Google has reportedly indicated that forthcoming algorithm updates will be more “jarring.”

Google Launches New Google+ Business Features

Posted on: August 30th, 2012 by Lina

Google declared the release of a few new business-specific Google+ attributes these days. Included in this are private sharing for within the organization, video group meetings integrated with Gmail, Calendar and Docs, and a few admin controls.

The features are just obtainable in preview setting right now, for Google Apps customers.

“Google Apps users now have more control over the content they post to Google+,” says Google Apps Product Management Director Clay Bavor. “When you create a post you can mark it as restricted. Restricted posts are private to your organization and can never be re-shared with anyone outside. At the same time, when you create a post, you have the flexibility to share it with specific partners or colleagues outside the organization as well if you choose.”

“When you’re on Google Apps, holding a face-to-face meeting with colleagues or clients around the world doesn’t require coordinated travel schedules or expensive video conferencing technology,” says Bavor. “All you need is a device with a camera and an internet connection. Hangouts lets up to 10 people join a video meeting from their laptop, phone or tablet.”

Bavor notes that others can join multi-way video Hangout-powered chats from Gmail, as Google recently announced, and that docs could be opened and edited. Users may also be able to give a hangout to a Calendar event, he states.

Google’s Matt Cutts said in a Google+ post that the new features “might look small, but are actually pretty huge.”

“First, with Google Apps you can now restrict posts so that it only goes to people within a company,” he said. “This lets you set up a corporate social network like Yammer, Chatter, etc. We use this feature all the time and we have a vibrant Google+ community inside of Google too.”

“The second feature lets you add a video hangout as a direct link in Google Calendar,” he added. “Google has offices all over the world, so we use this feature a ton as well. If you have a distributed company, you’ll want to try this new feature.”

Throughout the preview period, Apps customers are able to use the features free of charge through the end of 2013. Meanwhile, Google says it will likely be adding more features and admin controls.

Webmasters Suspect A Significant Google Algorithm Update Just Happened

Posted on: August 30th, 2012 by Lina

There are a few rumblings that Google might have made a important update to its algrorithm this week, sometime in the vicinity of August 28. Search Engine Roundtablepoints to a WebmasterWorld forum threadwhere some webmasters are placing comments on substantial changes in their traffic – a few positive, some negative.

Listed here are a couple sample comments from the forum:

“20% google traffic improvement as of yesterday… Only about 500% left to go to get back to normal… But like the direction!”

“I noticed a massive drop in long tail yesterday. Our site only went live in June, and there have been no indications of Panda/Penguin.”

One reader commented on the SER post, “I’m seeing a very obvious increase in traffic for several large clients, two of which their traffic has increased by about 25% or so – Obviously something is going on, but at least (for once) it doesn’t seem to have affected me negatively!”

Dr. Peter Meyers, exactly who recently shared that interesting data bout Google SERPs together with less than ten organic results, at SEOmoz, also mentioned on the article, indicating that he’s seen “no sign of anything major,” based on MozCast numbers.

There’s question whether or not Google has modified the Penguin update. Someone else commenting on that post noted that the lack of more comments doesn’t seem “jarring and jolting”. This really is in mention of the what Google’s Matt Cutts recently (reportedly) said at SES about what to expect from upcoming updates.

Google updates it’s algorithms over 500 times a year. A few have far greater effect than others. This might be among those not so major ones.

We’ve reached out to Google for comment, and will update if we receive one.

Matt Cutts Has To Explain Paid Links To Newspaper

Posted on: August 29th, 2012 by Lina

Google’s Matt Cutts has a new blog post up about paid links. He says he was contacted by an unnamed newspaper who saw its Pagerank drop from a 7 to a 3, and wanted to know why. The reason, as Cutts explains, was because the site was selling links that passed PageRank, which is, of course, a violation of Google’s quality guidelines.

Cutts shares an email he sent to the newspaper (leaving out the identifying info). Here’s a chunk of what he had to tell them:

In particular, earlier this year on [website] we saw links labeled as sponsored that passed PageRank, such as a link like [example link]. That’s a clear violation of Google’s quality guidelines, and it’s the reason that [website]‘s PageRank as well as our trust in the website has declined.

In fact, we received a outside spam report about your site. The spam report passed on an email from a link seller offering to sell links on multiple pages on [website] based on their PageRank. Some pages mentioned in that email continue to have unusual links to this day. For example [example url] has a section labeled “PARTNER LINKS” which links to [linkbuyer].

So my advice would be to investigate how paid links that pass PageRank ended up on [website]: who put them there, are any still up, and to investigate whether someone at the [newspaper] received money to post paid links that pass PageRank without disclosing that payment, e.g. using ambiguous labeling such as “Partner links.” That’s definitely where I would dig.

Cutts goes on to suggest that after the site completes an investigation, and gets rid of any paid links that pass PageRank, it submit a reconsideration request.

In the comments section of the post, Cutts notes that a drop in PageRank toolbar is an indication of Google’s decreased trust in a site. In this case, because of link selling.

Of course since the Penguin update (and even before it), people have been getting messages from Google about bad links, and it’s caused a lot of panic. This panic seems to be reflect in the comments of Cutts’ post, with some webmasters wondering if they should simply place nofollow on all of their links to avoid Google penalties.

Google Puts A Big Display Ad Right In The Middle Of Its Homepage

Posted on: August 28th, 2012 by Lina

I went to Google.com this morning to check and see if there happened to be a doodle today. I quickly realized there was not, and closed the tab, but just as I was closing it, I noticed some animated graphic start to pop up. Perhaps I had been wrong.

So, I went back to Google.com, and waited for the animation to return, and to my surprise, it was not a doodle, but an ad. A big animated display ad for a Google product – the Nexus 7 tablet.

Click on the image, and you’re taken to this landing page on Google Play, where you get more information about the device, and the following video:

It’s nothing new for Google to throw a link to one of its products underneath the search box, and honestly, I’m not entirely sure this is the first time they’ve put a graphic there, but it’s the first time I can remember seeing one, and an animated one no less, so it really catches the eye.
