    Google up $4.46 to $613.28 in midday trading...                                                                                             Demand Media Inc. dropped 7.8 percent.

    I still don't understand the impact on Hub Pages, but the Street likes the move.

    Google has also expanded the user base of chrome lately and is making another attempt into the social sphere.

    Hard to pinpoint that an algo change that only 18% of the industry will even  notice has anything to do with such a rise.


    But the bad PR surrounding DS would encourage a drop

    I consider this a key quote.

    "Google has been increasingly plagued by questionable SEO practices and content farms that "harvest" their stories from other sites."

    Replace the word "harvest" with the word "steal" to understand the real meaning...

    HP doesn't steal. And Google knows that.

    I think we will be ok. smile

      You don't steal and I don't steal, but there are plenty of hubbers who do.

      HP doesn't steal, but plenty of hubbers do.  Plenty of hubbers also use promotional methods that Google doesn't like.

      HP management isn't at fault, but some hubbers sure are.

              "The system is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please try again later."

    Well I was wandering round the net, as you do, and got myself on Xomba and ended reading their blog. They're alright. They knew this was coming. So yah boo smile

    For the record I'm tanking. But some of my stuff is perched at #1 now and wasn't before. It's nuts. However I'm not losing any sleep, I'm too busy trying to hold onto my voice right now, never mind my Google marbles lol

    Moffta bed soon, I'm fine with the HP team doing what they do best - keeping the site up, running and moving forwards.

      How about traffic from googe.com source? I lost nearly 50% of google.com traffic for last 2 days.

    My AdSense is actually up significantly. But it's all from my niche sites. I made a whopping $0.11 on AdSense today from HP. Lowest I've seen it since I started here.
