I am far from being a SEO expert. What I can see that Google is a moving target. That means, if we try to aim at this moving target, it might have been moved the moment we shoot. Or at least it becomes very stressful, like day trading with stocks. With that being said, I embrace these changes who provide authentic, genuine and fresh contact – and are engaged throughout the web. We can make less hype about Google and single tricks to game them. Take care Oliver Ilkaflood 2971 days ago Reply Thanks, Oliver, for sharing this! I so appreciate you! And yes, you are absolutely right as far as Google being a "moving target" (actually, not just Google) as soon as I figure something out things have changed already. Can be frustrating, but what can we as marketers do? Be blessed, Ilka Marcusb 2971 days ago Reply Hi Ilka, I must say I like the idea of Google being more balanced as long as this allows one to lean to one or the other sides more without being penalized. Some people do prefer to be more SEO oriented and others are almost exclusively social media oriented. I think they are so different and suit different personality types that I would hate to see Google manipulating us in anyway. This all said, it's a good idea to weed out all the bot drivel that should not be on the first page of search results if it is not delivering value and usually it doesn't. Thanks for sharing your insights. ~Marcus Ilkaflood 2949 days ago Reply I totally agree with you, Marcus. We'll see where it goes. So far I think Google is doing a great job....But...at the same token, Google+ looks very much like Facebook which raises the question, do we really need both? And if we feel we do didn't we just double our workload trying to keep up with friends, and groups and pages and circles and ....???
