    This Dance


    As an SEO new commer, this is techincally my first dance, Yes i've finally been violated by google and have am no longer a dance virgin, with my site i've noticed in the past days dropping from 28 to 280 and back up, then down then up again, not really gaining to much ground, but from where we were (supposedly with the google flux) we've climbed up quite a bit which im very happy for, the SEO on my site has only been active for roughly 2 months if even that and have been crawled numerous times, with one deep crawl yesterday with 40 hits.

    I assume that is a deep crawl considering i only have 22 pages on my site, noticing in the logs duplicates on some pages, which is due to interlinking and it finding its way around the site.

    Before i go any further i'd like to thank all of you guys that respond to these messages, and help people out.. you've heard and read it all before. But truely, your advice is worth its weight in gold and then some.

    My Question:

    As google dances, and it only found persay as of NOW, i know this could change, 6 back links of about 20 that have been done (all pr 4 and higher) is it possible it could pick up the rest? or is their a time frame before the dance that it just uses a deadline to gather them, then it just waits until next round to gather the rest?

    Question 2:

    Is it feasible to do changes during a dance? or? sit tight not touch anything?


    Thanks.

    I usually panic and add more PR5 backlinks during the dance as I wait to be executed by Google. LOL. I swore after the last dance I would do nothing and just accept my Google Fate. It worked for 5 weeks and I stayed #1. I am still #1 but these 2 new data centers have me #3 while the other 9 we knew and loved have me #1. I have no idea what you should do during the dance. My friend seoguy guy who does this for a Living says just sit back and wait till Google is Done doing their thing whatever that is. Then optimize and get ready for the next onslaught.
    Thats probably prudent advice but when this stuff starts, I can't sit still.
    Good Luck.

    google quality


    does anyone else see a disproportionate amount of amazon links, unrelated internal pages, and message boards in the SERP's? i think we are in for a long winter.

    Yes, i do too.. besides those i've read here that dealtime is also taking some serp spots as well.. in my area of a few clients bluelight.com or Kmart seems to be in the mix. Im sure some are valid.. but the amount of unrelated and larger gorilla sites that really have nothing to do with the subject is getting a tad out of control.
