So, recently Google changed their search algorithm in an attempt to weed out low quality sites and "content farms". Some websites gained in search rank, and some declined.
I decided to do a Google search for "Draculasaurus" to see how I did.
What do you think came up first?
My registered domain name "Draculasaurus.com"?
My copyrighted comic "Draculasaurus" for sale on IndyPlanet?
The top result is a twitter account with one follower which happens to also use my habitual moniker.
(I'm @Draculasaurus13 on twitter by the way, because plain old @draculasaurus was already taken when I joined.)
This update is designed to reduce rankings for low-quality sites—sites which are low-value add for users, copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful. At the same time, it will provide better rankings for high-quality sites—sites with original content and information such as research, in-depth reports, thoughtful analysis and so on.
Sorry Google, it's a fail. -at least in this case.
