Squidoo dropped further. HP stayed about the same.
Not really what I was hoping for to be honest.
I suspect, looking at traffic patterns over the last year, as Google have tried to shaft both HP AND Squidoo - they will now think it is about right.
ie. we are both dropped down the rankings.
The blue is HP, red is Squidoo. It makes no real difference - we have ended in more or less the same place. I believe the year long scale shows how Google have manipulated the search algorithm to hit both sites equally.
It's tough over in Squidland at the moment. Same as it has been here. So not a time for celebration I think - more of a shared ouch.
A worthy op.
Squidoo has never done anything mean to me, so I have no animosity towards them either.
However, I'd sure like to know if eHow got what they deserved. Unfortunately they're not Quantified. I'm also curious to find out if Yahoo's junk, 3-year-old Q&A is still showing up on page one.
How can HP and Squidoo possibly know what it is that Google expects from them, when Google are desperately clinging to a market share which they will eventually lose?
These two giants are merely reflecting Google's own fortunes. The future is uncertain, the only certainty is that reasonably skilled content writers will always be needed. But will Google?
Yes I noticed too the rubbish of yahoo questions and answers, everytime I look something up the stupid four year old answers come up. It wouldn't be so bad if the answers were correct! most of them are a mixture of guesswork, rubbish and downright stupidity!

Bye bye traffic!My account has dropped from ~3000 views per day to 1700 (and still dropping). At least 1/3 of that traffic is from Pinterest.Google, what are you doing?

Yup. I was just over there on the old stomping grounds and there was a blue box. I've taken a screen shot and saved it for a momento. Sorry to see the old wagering about when the next blue box will drop come to an end.
