    Lightbulb Link Popularity being Re-Defined and Revised



    As of this week - there has been a revolution of what Google counts as a link - no longer is a static Pagerank 4 site considered a priority

    However - sites that mention a particular URL and WebQuotes
    will display what was formerly links...


    This may have been a factor in the recent re-algorithmization of Google that has vastly changed the landscape of my SERPs for many keyword queries...

    What exactly will count as a link?

    Do you have an example of what will be counted? I don't follow what you mean by "mention a particular URL and WebQuotes" and I have not seen any radical or unexpected changes to what Google has been reporting as links. Pretty much just gradual increases.

    it's clear that topic sensitive back links are the key.
    if a PR8 webdesign website link travel related website, this is not so much important.
    Are u talking about this?

    Does WebQuotes even work? It seems to be an old beta that never went anywhere.

    I played with the links how does google determine what portions to quote. If this is true this just gives more weight to the authority sites. Links from simmilar sites.

    i read somewhere that google has either modified or plans to modify how it tracks backlinks. mainly, when you enter a certain search term like "sports," if another page listed in those search results links to you, it gets a higher value. this would make link farms less effective.

    I don't believe any revolution going on at Google right now. Relevance has always been the focus of their work.

    Lightbulb Continually Tweaking Relevancy Algorithms


    Is Link Popularity / Popularity of Links being Re-Algorithmized?

    It would seen that for the query
    search engines
    and
    search engine


    Google should have a better ranking than some that are above them on the SERPs

    It seems that Meta Tags and Alt tags and URLs in this case would not make much difference but are a factor

    The Titles seem to be making a difference - but HOW MUCH

    It would seen that solving this conundrum would offer a key to Google's Algorithms

    Additionally - using HOME or HOME PAGE as a search term
    (checking importance of hypertext backwards links) is giving different SERPs - It appears that TITLES have a newer emphasis than previous months
    ___________________________________________-

    Finally, Comparing the SERPs for the terms


    http://




    http://ranking.thumbshots.com/?q1=ht...2F&e2=yahoo&p=

    but very dissimilar on

    http:


    Interestingly, this is one of the few instances where GOOGLE and YAHOO show relatively similar SERPs using completely different Algorithms

    PR 4 or more should never have been considered a priority.

    lower than PR4 still COUNTS, it just doesn't SHOW.

    Exclamation Manually Addressing Link Exchange Companies


    Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.linkstoyou.com

    If the URL is valid, try visiting that web page by clicking on the following link: www.linkstoyou.com
    Find web pages that contain the term "www.linkstoyou.com"
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...=Google+Search

    Not only has the site been removed - but this once high PageRanked site is now PR-0

    It Seems that the Google's developers are indeed
    focussing on and manually modifying their SERPs by excluding some Link Exchange oriented Firms and the Web pages that employ their techniques
