Worth a read esp. if you are designing new sites.
Another nonsense post from mr cutts.
Just a sneaky way to increase revenues from advertisers.
Might need to make some changes on some of my sites now
Edit - anyone see what someone mentioned in the comments? They said that G are doing exactly what Matt is saying you shouldn't do (loads of adds and little content when you first go to a website/page). They searched credit cards and only one result showed above the fold, it's pretty funny actually.
That asides, how will it affect sales sites who list lots of product images with links to each item description?
They will be looking at ad services and banner management code rather than just images. Images and internal links will be fine. Images and aff links will always be tough. Manual images with external links will probably be ok too.
It'll be interesting to see whether this applies to Adsense ads. My guess is that if your site only has Adsense, it won't be affected regardless of ad positioning.
I had a site on page 1 of G for last 6 months, moved it over last week to FSB and it has dissapeared off page 1, could have something to do with this change?
I have looked and it seems to have 60+ pages in index but god knows where in the index, I am jigging it about a bit in light of the above and will wait to see what happens.
Thats nothing to do with google changes.
I am sure you are right so lets see what difference if any this algo change makes.
Nice to see the fekkers lose 10% of their share price yesterday...
I wonder if it will make any difference to their plan of killing off affiliates?
