Who say’s Google’s algorithm needs tweaking? After many month’s of hard work, we’ve clawed our way up to the first page of Google results for “small farm animals.”
I tried to post this a couple of minutes ago, but our database decided to check out for a little while. In the mean time, I recieved this well timed article from MediaPost asking the question “Are User-Generated Web Sites Breaking The Search Engines’ Algorithms?”
Tim Daly’s on the money here – the content of the web is changing due to consumer generated content; to my mind it’s possibly becoming more frivilous and definitely becoming worse spelled. Sites like Wikipedia are great, but they lack the fact checking you often need if you’re going to expect work you do citing them to stand up to scrutiny.
For the record, Vario Creative does not comment on, nor offer advice about “large farm animals.” If you need help there, you’ll have to go elsewhere…Vario Creative – the choice of small farm animals everywhere…watch for our upcoming “Tin Can Tuesday” segment…;-)
(Update: Google recalculation is apparently in full swing – we’ve dropped to #12. 2/4/08)
