PageRank Update December 6, 2013

I didn’t expect it to happen, but it happened!

I’ve still been using pagerank numbers in my seo efforts because even though it was getting close to 10 months old, it was still the only number we had to go on from the LARGEST DATABASE of backlink data in the world, from the company with the largest market share by a long shot. However I’ve been using Majestic SEO’s citation flow and trust flow numbers, as well as the number/quality of backlinks and anchors, pretty much expecting pagerank to be a done deal at some point. MOZ numbers work well too.

Still, don’t rejoice too quickly, looks like its possible they’re working with old numbers in this pagerank update. Some are even complaining that the numbers they’re now seeing in the toolbar look more like September’s numbers, not very up to date. Who knows?

For me, it still buys me some time where I can make some use of Google’s data as best as I can, relying more and more on other indicators.

If you want to follow my ongoing SEO updates, I mostly update here.


Leaked Google Manual Review Document

There’s a big discussion going on my facebook page (just do a search on Google for Chad Kimball marketer and you’ll find it.)

Internet marketers are all freaking out about the leaked google reviewer’s document. I think it is not as important to know what the quality reviewers are looking for. It is more important because it shows what google is trying to teach its automatic algorithms. Google eventually wants their algorithm to be so good that it doesn’t need an amazing review of all these pages. So you better believe every time a human reviewer is reviewing a page, it is feeding that information into google’s algorithm so it doesn’t make that mistake again.

Anyway, Google recently took down the document, so I’m posting it here. Comments?

  • From nowhere to first position in google.
  • Used wordpress and and unique blackhat linking tactic.

Let me give you the failsafe linking diagram that is commonly used to keep their money sites safe from being banned. I’ve blogged about it before, but let me repeat it here:

Now, there are a lot of specifics on how these links are generated that can make this completely FAIL.

There are hundreds of ways to do it wrong, and a few ways to do it right.

But you don’t need to be a genius to successfully add these techniques to your online business.
