Google Did Another Algorithm Change
Google Did Makes Changes Once Again
As many hubbers know traffic to many hubs have dropped drastically. Many people are saying it is due to an outage and issues on Hubpages' end. This may be part of the reason why traffic has dropped by a lot to many hubs. However, it is worth to note that Google made changes to their Algorithm, and it appears that the changes too effect on September 29, 2012, which means this past Friday.
This time the changes are going to target exact domain match in Google's search results. This means that sites with keywords in their domain name may end up feeling the effects of this Google change.
Another thing that is worth noting is that when you search for things on Google, such as a specific item, you may notice that many of the front page and few pages after that are from the same domains such as Amazon and other big name retailers.. If you type in certain keywords, then next thing you know it you will see Wikipedia pop up a good 5-10 times on the front page.
I think that SEO is going to be close to useless if the goal is to get to the front page of Google, that is if you plan on ranking for some keywords. Google says that they want high quality content and that is the major key in getting a good place in the search engines. That may be true, but I still think that most people have no chance at getting to the front page of Google now.
