My opinion for the latest Google update, is very good idea by Google because all website owners that are over optimizing their site will be affected and devalued from Google search engine. But, there are lots or easy solutions to recover from this update. Check your website's backlink then remove all the backlinks that are pointing to your site, then start creating original content or article and then share it to social media sites. Becuase Google prefered more about social signals nowadays. Also, submit your link to high authority related websites only and do guest posting as well.

Penguin update
by alphaomegalady / September 2, 2012 6:29 PM PDT

SEO professionals have to be more careful about link building, try to get backlinks from high quality sites so Google won't think our links as spams. Also, unique content is still very vital. Remove all duplicate contents and replace them with somethings fresh and original.

Opinion on the Penguin update from Google
by InMotionHosting / May 1, 2013 8:49 AM PDT

Hello Seo4ceo,

I was looking through the questions on this forum and thought that this open post of almost a year ago is something to reflect upon. Especially since many people are STILL believing in the old way of doing SEO.

The main purpose of the update was to stop people from "gaming" the system, where they can simply use key word stuffing or other non-helpful strategies to get their content listed at the top of the search results. They want quality and meaningful content to be at the top of their search results. Otherwise, using a particular search engine could end up being a waste of time. Why use a tool that doesn't find information for your needs?

Watch out for those who promise "quick results" with only a minimal effort and minimal content. Shortcuts in SEO are being closely watched in order to make sure that search results are valid. If you think that you can beat the "system" - I'd recommend against it. They employ quite a few smart people out there in Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

Quite simply, you need to concentrate on publishing QUALITY, relevant, and timely content to your specific customer-base. If you do that and people find value in your work, you will see your search placement climb. I would also recommend making sure that you make use of the resources that people are putting out there. Especially, for those of you who aren't following the changes in SEO. As the world gets more and more connected, you'll find that people tend to find out very quickly what is valid and valuable as opposed to those simply trying to make a quick buck.

I keep hearing that SEO is "dead", but I would say that it's evolved (and evolving) to include social media and its various avenues. Use social media to make your customers aware, involved and believing in your "brand". Building up your core identify this way will help you weather any of the changes as they occur because you'll always have that core of loyal customers who believe in you.

Want to some validation on what I'm saying? Check out Google's Matt Cutts (he's got a slew of videos in Youtube on the subject of SEO) as well others like SEOMoz who are dedicated to this industry. I'll end with a paraphrase (as I'm not sure of the exact wording) from Matt Cutts (he's currently the head of Google's Webspam team) on SEO: "We may never really be rid of the current definition of SEO, but instead of Search Engine Optimization, we should call it Search Experience Optimization." Focus on publishing quality content for your customers, and keeping it relevant and timely.

Hi Bob,

Good point! Sorry, I only listed a few of the search engines out there. The main point of the original question was about our opinion on the Penguin update - which I believe doesn't apply to the search engine you mentioned.

However, would you use a search engine if it's going to take you several minutes to find relevant results? I guess, if your concern was for privacy (or monopoly) you could do that, but don't think for a moment that your search patterns aren't going to be used in order to improve their search algorithms.

I think I will to go check the old lycos.com search and then maybe look at dogpile.com.

Sorry, if it appears I was criticizing duckduckgo.com's search speed - I wasn't. And you did get me interested in the search engine. There's always something new coming up on the web. I was reading this about duckduckgo:

Have a great day!

Here's more about the bubble.

SEO is broke because how how it all works (at google.) If I search and they can figure out it's me, my results change from another person's search.

So any SEO folk do is IMO, mostly a waste of time. If folk get back to basics and provide good service or content, the SEO works out for them

The ever-evolving SEO equation
by arncus1 / May 16, 2013 10:16 AM PDT

If you haven't heard, Google is again putting out a major update - mostly to help sift out the spammers and hackers out there as well as anyone trying to "game" the system and rank high when they shouldn't. Check out this video from Matt Cutts of Google for more info: What should we expect in the next few months in terms of SEO for Google?


Additionally, contrary to some, there are still some basic SEO tasks that you need to do in order to help get your web pages to rank high. SEOmoz.org is a great group that reviews the industry regularly and continues to put out good information. Check out this link for a great foundation on practicing SEO:

Blueprint on how to rank using SEO

As always, I hope the information helps provides clarity on the issues!
