under-promise, over-deliver email spam pitch of the day. 

"Just recently Gangman Style ( PSY - GANGNAM STYLE (강남스타일) M/V ) reached a record 2 billion views. Now imagine the scale of Gangnam Style's popularity being applied to your business! This is exactly how I deliver results to my clients - and I assure you that you'll be overwhelmingly pleased with the outcome."

“Google is getting WH [White House] and State Dept support and air cover. In reality they are doing things the CIA cannot do…[Cohen] is going to get himself kidnapped or killed. Might be the best thing to happen to expose Google’s covert role in foaming up-risings, to be blunt. The US Gov’t can then disavow knowledge and Google is left holding the shit-bag”

Nice to see politically polarizing comments back and forth about a heckler at an Obama speech in the "Hot and Recommended" section on Google+.

It reminds me of a quote

"I'm not saying that television is vulgar and dumb because the people who compose the Audience are vulgar and dumb. Television is the way it is simply because people tend to be extremely similar in their vulgar and prurient and dumb interests and wildly different in their refined and aesthetic and noble interests." - David Foster Wallace

It also reminds me of a movie

"I miss the days where a search returned solid content from individuals posting on the web from real experiences and passion.

Now I just get pages of junk, ads, and click stealing phony pages.   Google's core content is very bland now and rarely satisfying unless I'm looking for something common and at a high level." - Timothy Notestein  

#brand  #authority #reputation #trust #ad-budget #etc
Google is transforming its business and the notion of search through a richer offering of information and services that has some advertisers wishing it was still largely a Web index.

When I first started online, this $11 piece of weakness was "the chair" for the first 3 or 4 years. ;)

One wonders if the "geniuses" that claim there is no brand bias have done a side by side comparison of  the longevity of penalties between small ecommerce sites that were hit by Panda and big brands that intentionally egregiously violated the guidelines like Interflora.

Reality can smack a person in the face, but  "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!" - Upton Sinclair

Of course the direct explicit bias from the humans that write the code for the algorithm also applies to the algorithm itself. Why wouldn't it carry across there if it is so overt elsewhere?

Also it is a myth that penalties must be "completely unscathed" or "complete & absolute death."  Some of their efforts of the past few years were allegedly about working in that gray area between those 2 absolutes. They can allow BMW to rank for keywords with BMW in them and disallow ranking for other terms or dampen/demote across other terms.

Believing the black & white, hit or miss, all or nothing "solutions" are the only solutions in existence is giving into the propaganda of the central network operators, even as those same network operators are working on coding up alternative solutions inside "the algorithm." 

Some manual penalties are harsher than others. Some algorithmic penalties are harsher than others. There isn't a significant difference between a whitelist & an overly aggressive algorithm that has lots of collateral damage followed up by select manual overrides.

Story
Tagline
back when I got into SEO we had to build links in the snow, uphill both ways!
Introduction
I am a well known SEO, considered to be an expert by some. I have been actively involved on the web as a publisher and an SEO practitioner since 2003 (that makes me sound soo old).

I tend to think marketing is both powerful and dangerous, and hope that my contributions to the web manage to make the web a better place than it would be without them existing.

SEO is a challenging occupation since the field changes rapidly and central network operators (ie: Google engineers) are often biased against you and hope to see you fail.
