    There are more moves ahead at Google to get the 'best' content to the top of the organic rankings, rather than just well SEOd sites.

    This looks like it could be a real game-changer for many SEO guys out there? But who knows?

    As mentioned in the previous thread re. Google and forthcoming changes, I guess it's all about making them more advertising £s

    That's been the thorn in independent or small businesses paw as of late

    How do Google define 'best' - again it's by popularity, linkbacks, who's trending/talking about you, where are you active on social media, what reputable businesses are talking about you etc....

    They can't automatically define 'content' on it's own merit. If it was, we'd all stand a better chance!

    To get there you either need a lot of luck, large pockets (for advertising to become known) or already heavily established. Meaning big businesses get to the top of the engines rather than being a level playing field.

    I think it's a hint that they are focusing on spun and duplicate content. There are too many autoblogs with spun content that make ridiculous amounts of money.

    I thought that was the idea behind Panda - or wasn't it the crap content terminator Google thought it would be?

    who knows?

    I think that as long as you keep it all relevant, informational, unique (on page and from quality incoming links) you should have half a chance of keeping or improving your ranking positions.

    Do you think this new change could increase the value of well aged exact match domains even more?

    The bottom line is, Google wants everything to be natural, so make it look natural. Over optimising a keyword is like waving the white flag at them.

    From what ive read, we're talking too many backlinks with same anchor text... Thing is, EMD can't avoid the EMD term as anchor as it's the name of the site?! Surely if there was one phrase you would be given benefit of the doubt, it's this one?
