    If you could ask the Google Traffic Gods one question, what would it be?

    I remain in the dark as to the many dramatic ups and downs on my traffic. If you could sit with the traffic engineers that rule our readers, what would you ask of Google? Am I the only one perplexed?

    I'm not so much perplexed by that anymore, but I do wish that our adsense earnings were transparent. We can't see which ads were clicked and such, so there's no way to tell if they are paying what they're contracted to pay us.

    You've got first crawl dates on new content, so why do scraped copies of pages posted at a later date sometimes outrank the original?

    (the problem is less common than it used to be, but it still isn't eliminated.)

    Although really, there isn't much I'd ask. I am a little stymied sometimes by how the algorithm ranks particular sites relative to each other, but from a big picture standpoint, I have an idea what the algorithms are trying to select for even if they don't always succeed.

    How can I get an adsense account? I had one once a few years back, they want that password in order to get a new one, and I have no idea what it was.

      You can only ever have one Adsense account, so your only hope is to get your password reset on the old one.

    I would ask them why they cannot predict the future considering they are Gods.

    That would make life a whole lot easier but probably a whole lot duller too.

    It is a great game playing at catch up, don't ya think? smile
