    One thing I realized today is that I have heard really nothing from the so called IM gurus I normally get emails from at least once every week or so. Lately they have been totally quiet. I am wondering if their own sites got hit with this latest G update and what if anything, they're doing about it. I have gotten an email from Howie Schwartz but It looks like it's just another part of an auto responder. Where are the emails from people like Matt Carter, John Bass, the SEO brain trust (Dan & Leslie) and others who have been trying to get me to buy their programs which are supposedly the way to go in the post Panda era.

    has anyone else noticed this? I was thinking of just posting something on their blogs but curious to hear from others first.

    Thanks

    thats a great question. I think the so called Gurus are having their world turn upside down right now. Its only been a few days so I dont think anyone completely understands the new algo change except for the super secret google team .

    until something is leaked for hard evidence, the gurus would probably not say anything because they have their reputations on the line.

    I was looking at Matt Carter's blog last night and nothing. I will now look at the SEO Brain Trust and John Bass. If anyone has gotten emails or seen updates on a guru's blog, please share. i really am astounded as to how silent they're being on this.

    too early to know exactly, this will take some time to figure out...

    I'm sure they're having secret meetings in their respective cartels and syndicates planning coordinated product launches to capitalize on the desperate.

    Once someone has some hard evidence it will be out everywhere on all the top blogs.

    Most of the gurus dont need seo they make their money by creating products then through jv and email lists.

    Someone on the WF already has a $7 WSO out on it. Guess they'll make a quick buck.

    That is what I am kind of expecting. I guess they're just putting together some stuff but even some kind of quick email saying "Hey we/I am investigating this and will get back to you shortly" would make sense. It's just an odd week to say the least.

    Google latest update is not logical. You need certain parameters to rank sites but they all screwed them and results are also screwed right now.

    Now that you mention it, my mailbox has been empty too. I normally get tons of emails from the Gurus!

    Their silence is deafening. I finally emailed Matt Carter last night but doubt I will hear something. I have to believe that their sites were impacted too. Of course they make most of their money from their lists, cross marketing, selling coaching programs and forum memberships but I have to believe they also get some of their revenue from their traditional affiliate sites which probably took a hit. I am sure we will start seeing emails later this week

    OK well Matt Carter did update his blog which you can Google - I have to give him credit because while I cannot verify if he's telling the truth (he claims his sites went up, not down which of course is logical because if he were to state that his sites got hit then he could lose credibility) he did not at least not try to use it as an immediate opportunity to push his programs.

    It would be foolish for anyone to try to predict what Google wants right now. The rankings are far too inconsistent.

    There is a lot going on in the background, including the concerns on NSEO. I however am still standing by my Social is King theory as explained in my blog (and hopefully new post going up tommorow).
