Google Update affecting Brand Name Searches On News Sites
Logged into skype this morning, got berated for not updating this blog for 6+ months.
Used the excuse that I’d post if I had something worthwhile to post.
You could be updating the masses about last week’s G update affecting brand name searches on news sites, I’m sure inquiring minds wanna know.*
OK, there we have it…something worthy of sharing. Give me the cliffs and I’ll make a post….
I pretty much wrote the grand sum of what I know about it in that sentence.*
Sites like NewYorker, Newsweek, and VanityFair all took a traffic hit on brand related searches.*
Oh cool, we’re really filling this post up with valuable insights now.
Grantland too, allegedly*
Good, fuck those guys. Couldn’t sniff Grantland Rice’s typewriter strap.
That’s it, ladies and germs who are still dumb enough to care about SEO and/or read this pile of tripe. Also, never forget…

You might not know him (if you live under a rock and subsist solely on nutrients derived from eating your own toe jam) but he’s sort of a big deal and I watched him triple his investment in 2 hours yesterday leveraging the failing market so clearly he’s smart enough to 1) realize the truth of Jcash’s wisdom above and 2) be a reputable source of quality info on this Google update. Post comments or you’re Tom Nuttall by choice.
Edit: Apparently mont7071 didn’t realize Grantland was shut down. This breaking news throws the entire veracity of this post into question.
