Google Bombs go BOOM

Written by David Harry   
Friday, 26 January 2007 11:51 oops.. I mean 'Link Bombs'

I was just posting this over at SEO Yak and figured I would put a quick heads up here as well. Apparently Google Bombing has been dealt a blow of its own; Matt Cutts of Google (fame?) mentioned a recent piece of his on the Google Webmaster Blog that discusses what Google is doing to defuse this nasty little sport. There is also mention of a breakdown from Danny Sullivan – I am still reading that one..

Sounds interesting … more to come after I get some sleep and read up more...

Ok still up... who needs sleep anyways, right?  – well it seems Matt and Co are givin’ it the ol ‘Hidey Ho’ and simply passing off the update (why the fuss Matt?) and his ‘gang’ merely slid along by letting us know that they are, “improving our analysis of the link structure of the web” – Which is really great kids because it will likely  be “minimizing the impact of many Googlebombs” – or so we’re told.

Wow… here’s a fun one. Depending on whom you believe the SEO industry is having a bad year… or maybe not. Taken from references in the Marketing Sherpa ‘Search Marketing 2007 Benchmark Guide’, a couple of different take’s on the situation

First the ‘anti-SEO’ view ;

…and then the ‘anti-anti-seo’ view;

I for one have one simple word – Spammers – As long as spammers keep getting more sophisticated so will the SEs. It’s a war of attrition. The more sophisticated the SEs become, the more complex the task of ensuring one’s SEO endeavors are ‘up to speed’ with the latest changes and nuances.

Anyway, I felt that was an interesting little journey, let me know what you think.

Well the ever popular family fun game Google Bowling’ was back in the news it seems. What is Google bowling? If you don’t know, then apparently you’re not ‘very smart’,  at least according to one - Chris Bowers -

“I think Internet users are very smart and most are aware of what a Google bomb is,” he said, “and they will be aware that results can be massaged a bit’

While it is an interesting, if not passé pursuit, GB dark side wanna-bees are always fun to read. Here are some goodies...

Why buying links can be such a waste….

Ok, so here I am.. 11pm and going strong (yawn). Once I get to a certain point of each day, actual productive work, goes out the window. I simply no longer function well enough to make a difference. So I do more mundane stuff and wander the web.

I have been looking/working on Link Profiles a lot lately and as such, as any SEO maniac knows, racked my brain for ways to improve. I figured I hadn’t lurked in any of the Link Brokerages lately… so why not. Why not indeed.
