    I realise that links are technically verboten in forums, but in the current environment of confusion and for some Hubbers, distress, after Google's latest 'adjustments', I'm hoping that HP will allow this one. It's a bit disconcerting to think that us honest contributors could be being punished for an error, not of our making...

      Sadly - this just means more changes are a-comin'. Some of these results (particularly that one for "paypal france") are atrocious. lol

        I wonder if google even realized what it was doing. I mean, seriously, Viagra Paypal France? No wonder so many of us have had drastic plummets in traffic.

    Wonderful. Just so awesome; another attempt to weed out spam to allot irrelevant content.  Why all the changes? Why the constant "up dates"?

    You know, I sometimes look back with fondness at the early days of search.

    If you searched using a long tail keyword, then the sites that appeared at the top of the SERPs were those which contained exactly that keyword with the same order of words. That doesn't seem to happen any more.

    Ahhhhhhh  Kind of funny considering this is the sort of thing Bing (Microsoft) was probably wishing for, a major screw up on Google's part.  Bing is making theirs more streamline while Google, in their too big for our britches, king of Internet search engines, keeps doing whatever and messing up.  In this case, it seems messing up 'big time'  Screw over your customers and see what happens in business.
