    Google's flawed index - Fast track to a high rank!


    Here's a fast track to a high rank in the latest Google index.

    In the current index, unrelated dot-org domains are inheriting page rank from their corresponding dot-com and dot-net domains, regardless of whether there is any link between them.

    The dot-org domains for many high ranking dot-coms are available. I was easily able to find some PR6 and PR7 dot-com domains for which the corresponding dot-org is available.

    So, get the domains, set them up, link to them, link them to a new site that you want to give a high rank to, and wait for Google to crawl you. On the next Google index, you can have a high rank with very little effort, and for just about anything you want to optimize for.

    Google, your new indexing algorithms are flawed. Fix this thing!

    The best example is in another thread. The highly regarded website www.howstuffworks.com also redirects traffic from some closely related URLs, like www.howthingswork.com.

    The website www.howthingswork.org is receiving a page rank of PR9 as a result. Go figure.

    I don't want to see everybody rushing out to pick up dot-org domains, so I am not going to give any more examples of how this could work.

    I want to see this brought to Google's attention so that their current index build gets fixed. It's good that this forum is serving as a watchdog for Google.

    I'm not sure that will work. But you can always try. If by any chance it does work, I'm sure Google knows about it!

    I would rather get a good PR the real way with some good links. And the links will last, the idea of gettin pr through a .org domain and stuff isnt gonna. So it is for a month or so...

    Hi all,

    Some replies here show they don't GET what Howard was pointing out, which I think was that there are MAJOR FLAWS in the current Google index. I wouldn't be surprised if that would account for the odd googlebot behaviors that some have noticed.

    I saw that post and did a little digging. A disturbing lack of any Whois info among other things. Looks like some DNS wizardry at work. I agree, strange things are afoot. As long as new readers understand we (I) DON'T advocate trying this. You could end up 6 months effort and $200 down a dead end road before Google figures it out and drops you.

    Thanks for saying that. I definitely DON'T want people to learn how to game Google around here, and I am not encouraging it. What I want is for Google to keep its own house in order. A good site ought to be able to earn a high Google position for being a good site.

    Another thing I don't want to see happen is for sites to have to be designed just for Google. Google should work in such a way that a well designed site always gets indexed properly.

    I want to add that this guy who owns www.howstuffworks.org would be getting a bonanza this month if he had his site well designed for the software he is selling. Despite his huge unearned page ranking of PR9, which is higher than all but a handful of search portals like Yahoo and Google itself, his site is probably not relevant for any important term that he should be optimizing for. It's poorly designed in general. He's the accidental beneficiary of a Google bug.

    Alexa also seems to have the same error in it also. When you look up info on the howstuffworks.org, you actually get info from the .com site -> and a website rating of 1,174 (I can only dream of that! )

    See here:

    I think what might be happening is that this domain, howstuffworks.org, was owned until recently by the folks at howstuffworks.com, who should never have allowed their registration to lapse.

    Somehow, Google is doing a very imperfect job in this index of resolving multiple domains that point to a single domain. There are issues surrounding how those domains inherit rank and position, and also which URL should be used in the index.

    Google has failed to normalize its database structure properly.

    I would have though that google's db would be at least 3NF or BCNF if not higher, however there could be other problems related to maintaining the content of a very large distributed database, more likely that there is a problem with the current version of the algorithm or then again you may be right and someone took a shortcut to decrease the query execution time - but I doubt it.

    Yeah, and Google has to stop recognizing like, ummm art suppliers that link to tons of Russian originating phony porno sites.
