    When W120SN couldn't find the supposedly leaked PDF that Rusty Brick and the other SEO gurus were making a big fuss about, we Black Hats knew this was not what they were purporting it to be.

    Now Google has released the full version: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com.br/2015/11/updating-our-search-quality-rating.html

    Turns out the "leak" was in fact a tracer bullet. Google was probably checking which SEO gurus would trust them to release the "leak" and so on. As always, their cute little game goes on. You're friends with Matt Cutts you get benefits, if you're not, well that ranking algorithm sure is tough to crack ain't it. Better buy Adwords I guess ;)

    And also South Dakota. You know when North Dakota is like a million times cooler than you and basically your twin brother that you are compared to in every mention you are worthless, as North Dakota is also bullshit.

    Big time! Guy is a retard.. he will make a story up out of anything. We've all seen his great investigative journalism in action - Read bhw -> create CRAZY story from mashing a few posts together.. rinse and repeat!

    He wrote a whole story a few days ago about Cutts saying "uhhhh" under a tweet someone made about rand. Got a lot of trolling over it.. I couldn't help joining in. It was his first post of the day though and he doesn't give a single fuck what anyone thinks when it's his first post of the day...

    "I'm amazed that you were able to derive so many words from a simple "uhhhh...."

    I think it's sickening watching people like Barry sit around all day analyzing if Matt Cutts and Rand Fish
    are still "a thing" or not. Who cares if they are having lovers quarrels. They would rather do that than actually teach
    people how to rank or better yet rank themselves.

    So that's it? We're left with Adwords as the only alternative? Organic search is out?

    Hmmnn. Looks as if this cat and mouse game between Google and SEO-bloggers is not likely to end soon.

    lol barry. The only reason I read his blog is for the comments. Some good trolling of Josh Bachynski in there too
