    OK..so i have a few buffer .info domains where i test stuff and scripts and i just use them for spammy stuff. Can you imagine that one of those info domains got PR1 after this penguin s#it???

    I have legit websites (com/org/net) that have quality genuine articles, have quality themes and layouts, are optimized - and nothing. They were PR0 before and they are PR0 now...

    So...the idea that google is just screwing people came to my mind long tim ago...but now i am convinced and will never try to SEO or build websites and try to rank them according to rules.

    If a crappy website with NO CONTENT on it and ONLY A BUNCH OF WIDGETS AND AFF LINKS can get a PR1 and legit sites cant - SCREW YOU GOOGLE!

    I am happy i finally decided to let go...now this kinda made me more time to focus on easy traffic methods...i know you'd say that SEO is long term future income...i dont care...if anyone can explain why the info domain got PR1 i might reconsider SEO and GOOGLE...but i strongly doubt it!


    just a rant! Noting agravating! :)
    Cheers~

    Pagerank has nothing to do with ranking.

    Pagerank is about PR links and OBL. Nothung to do with the quality of a site.

    The PR1 site has no content just outbound links and 3 inbound links! Thats it!
    PR0 sites have content AND inbound/outbound links...

    Why start a thread just to rant? Do you really think we care if you are done with SEO? The answer is of course no. (sorry if I am sounding harsh but that's the truth).

    If it is advice you are after, I suggest you read as much as possible about penguin and panda and then do trial and error to see what works.

    Best of luck

    WOW...i am sorry to have bothered your illustrious person with my rant :)...why bother to read and post here if you dont like the thread???

    Also...isnt this a forum where people ALSO talk without spreading links and collecting referrals??? Without asking and begging for REP and Thanks???

    The only thing i must have done wrong is starting the thread in this section...and i show my apologies to the right people!

    Cheers!

    Because you write the title in capital letters and in a section where something specific should be discussed. Why I reply? Well.. because I don't think shitty threads contribute 2 BHW. If you want to chat.. do that in the lounge or on IRC.

    Cheers

    You should have stopped listening to Google a long time ago. How they say to rank and how to actually rank are two different things. When I listen to a Matt Cutts all I am hearing is "blah, blah, blah, lie, lie"

    I couldn't of put it any other way! I'd stay keep link building, don't use any of these automated tools or services, write decent content which people who own good sites will want to publish then distribute it to them, editorials, magazines, local newspapers, you can get in there without any budget you just need to make the right contacts. I say SEO still lives, but you've got to put REAL effort in to it.

    Exactly...i think Google is the greatest scammer company of them all...they are interested in selling ads...they dont care about user experience...they care about AD PLACEMENT

    The recent changes to Google hasnt really affected me, I'm still doing my thang and I'm ranking up for keywords on front page of google. It all depends on your approach I guess.

    It is not just you. I am seeing some big SEO companies (with highly scientific approach to SEO) struggling to rank sites. These experts who pay around $50-100 for blogging about their client, are now asking the bloggers to strip down the anchor texts and to remove one out of the two links in the article which they already published.

    However every SEO expert will be silent or stay positive; they have to, else they cannot do business or get more orders. Who will hire them if they keep cribbing about how it is near impossible now to assure ranking. In my opinion a clever webmaster at this point of time would be focusing on alternative traffic sources like social network sites, bing and cheap paid traffic. I am already on to it, and now consolidating my income generated through stumble upon+pinterest. Now focussing on bing traffic as well.

    All the best

    Agreed. Do what Google does. Don't do what Google says!

    Go ahead and stop doing SEO, it'll just give me more opportunity to grab clients who are willing to pay - less competition.
