My 8 Favorite Quotes About Google For 2013

Bizwaremagic’s 8 Favorite Quotes About Google For 2013

Google Spot!

All things considered 2013 was a very good year for Google.
It fought off Facebook to remain the number one ranked site
on the web according to, which measures traffic stats
on the web. Google’s share price topped $1000 and kept going.
Everywhere you looked, Google was in the news – promoting its
Google Glasses, Chromebooks, Android System… while quietly
acquiring one robot company after another.

Google had a very good year, but it also received some very
bad press, especially with its ongoing privacy issues and the
whole YouTube commenting mess which solidly backfired. Google
owns YouTube, and in 2013, they tried to integrate the Google
Plus ghostship into the popular YouTube site – requiring users
to use Google+ in order to comment on videos. The backlash was
immediate and massive.

As many disgruntled YouTube users and webmasters will contest,
Google can be a real “Miley Cyrus with her twerk on” when
it wants to be!

Despite its countless resources, Google still hasn’t learned
one of the most obvious facts about the web or even human nature
for that matter. You simply can’t force any program down
someone’s throat if they simply don’t want it.

However, as Google grows in power and influence, it will no doubt
dictate both our surfing habits and how we live our lives. This
influence is becoming so strong Google is approaching omnipotence.
Naturally, people will start to rebel, and I am probably at the
head of the line, especially when it comes to Google judging worthy
content on the web. In my opinion, they are simply getting it all
wrong when it comes to discouraging keyword link building and
disqualifying whole sites because of a few minor issues.

While my last year’s resolution was simply to ignore Google, I have
failed horribly. No matter how hard I try, the lovely beast has come
up in my articles and writings numerous times… so here are my
8 favorite quotes about Google for 2013:

“I am an atheist – I don’t believe in Google”

“Who Died and Made Google God?”

“Bless me Google for I have sinned.”

“Google is our Titanic”

“Content is NOT King, Google is King”

“Google has come a long way from that timid backrub
between two Stanford Graduates Larry Page and Sergey
Brin in a Menlo Park garage back in 1998.”

“At least they got the first two letters right!”

“The click is mightier than Google.”

There you have it, my most favorite quotes about Google in 2013.
For any non-webmasters reading this, Titanic was the original name
for the Penguin Update and BackRub was the original name given to
the search engine which later became known as Google. As for 2014,
I have again made it my resolution to completely ignore Google this year.
Just wonder how long that will last?

Google Released Major Hummingbird Update Last Month And Nobody Noticed

Google Released Major Hummingbird Update Last Month And Nobody Noticed
Written by

In celebration of its 15th birthday, Google told everyone that it
released a big, major update last month called the Hummingbird Update.
This is supposed to be one of the largest Algorithm updates since Google
blessed us with Caffeine in 2010.

Google Search Timeline

This Hummingbird Update is supposed to give Google searchers results/answers
for more complex “longer” questions. According to Google’s blog, “You can explore
the world with the Knowledge Graph, ask questions aloud with voice search,
and get info before you even need to ask with Google Now.”

For example, if you ‘compare butter with olive oil’ Google will give you a
side-by-side comparison so that you can receive or form your answer.
You can do the same thing for dog breeds and planets.

One gets the general impression Google is moving more towards voice search
and placing less emphasis on the old short keywords. It has nuked its popular
(although not very accurate) External Keyword Tool and lowered/removed the
importance of exact keyword links with the introduction of Penguin and other

If you have been studying and tracking Google over its 15 year lifespan,
you run the risk of becoming very cynical of its updates and changes. While
their stated goal is to give their searchers better quality results… one
can’t help but judge Google as catering to its bottom line and its big brand
name sponsors. Nothing wrong with that, Google is a public company and must
answer to its shareholders, above all else.

However, one can’t help but notice, with Knowledge Graph, and now with the
Hummingbird Update, Google may just be trying to keep users on its domain
for longer periods of time. The longer Google can keep users on their site,
the more information they can gather and the more ads they can sell.

Maybe that’s too cynical a view, but everyone has to realize Google’s main
competition is probably Facebook, which is currently beating Google in the
“time spent on site” stats. But its Google’s birthday and you simply have
to play nice when it’s someone’s birthday.

Happy Birthday Backrub – You Have Come A long Way And The Party Has Just Started!

Is Recovery From Google’s Penguin Impossible

Is Recovery From Google’s Penguin Impossible?

Google Spot!

Is There Life After Google Penguin?
Written by Titus Hoskins

Don’t know why reading a very informative article by Ben Pfeiffer
on Seroundtable entitled You May Never Recover From Google’s Penguin
came as a shock to me. Recovery from Penguin or any Google
Blacklisting may be extremely difficult, if not impossible.

This really seems to be the case with Penguin and not so much
with Panda, where site/content changes can bring back some former
Google traffic. However, with Penguin the doors may have been
permanently closed – your site’s link reputation has doomed it
from EVER getting any significant traffic from Google again
– especially from lucrative income producing keywords.

And it’s not like we weren’t warned since Matt Cutts said, at
the very beginning with Penguin – get rid of your domain and
start over. Forget your site, regardless of age or reputation,
and transfer your contents to a new domain if you want to get
traffic from Google.

Maybe Cutts didn’t phrase it in those exact words but that’s
the underlying theme of what’s been reported online in posts
and videos.

While we wait for another major Penguin Update coming in 2013,
one really has to wonder if all the link changes and link
removals will make a difference to how Google sees your site.
Will even using the Google Link Disavow Tool fix what Google
believes to be your “Spammy Link Profile” attached to your domain?

Perhaps the final verdict will be clearly seen in this next
Penguin Update, but for the moment, it looks like Google has
definitely “Blacklisted” certain URLs and recovery from this
“Blacklist” will be impossible. Once your site is marked, it’s
game over as far as Google is concerned.

Even more alarming, all those countless hours fixing problems
and trying to please Google, may have been a total waste of
valuable time for many site owners affected by the latest
Google fallout.
