Google Update affecting Brand Name Searches On News Sites

never forget

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.*

That’s ok, that conversation and subsequent post is at least as valuable as anything Barry or this farce contributed on the subject.

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.


About Grindstone

Just a guy who loves SEO and making money on the intertubez. Low tolerance for stupidity and self-righteous assholes. Thinks he's funnier than he is, just ask his wife. Wrote this stupid blurb in third person because it's annoyingly amusing to him. Might help you rank your projects if the numbers are right, but probably not.
