    He is taking the piss or "rubbing salt into the wounds" by tweeting a picture of a panda and a penguin.

    Doesn't anyone else see how much Matt Cunts is taking the piss here? He loves the fact that he wields the power to sink businesses with these gay ass updates and is basically laughing at that fact with these faggy pictures. I also love how BHW deleted that thread which legitimately raised the question of Matt Cunts being an absolute dumbass for parading his face in public and being the voice of Google as he is essentially taking all the flak for ruining thousands of businesses worldwide. And now, taking the piss with teddy bears isn't going to make webmasters any less angry. I will be glad when all this update crap is over and Matt Cunts shuts the hell up for once in a while.

    That name is fail. They always come up with the lamest names.

    In reference to the article:

    The new algorithm in January designed to penalize pages with too many ads above the fold was called the "page layout algorithm."

    Does that mean they are going to ban NBA, NASCAR, NFL, Sprint, Radio Shack, etc.? They are loaded with ads, it's ridiculous.

    Except for when Fortune 500 Companies are the only ones in the top 30, which is going to eventually come down to it.

    Remember Google's revenue, the majority, comes from Fortune 500 Companies, and not the small guy.

    Yep!!

    I've been saying this very thing for about 3 years. How many changes can they make until they cannibalize their own algorithm?

    Keep in mind that the algorithm is what makes Google "Google". (The best search engine, as they claim)

    And with this latest update, making it easy for competitors to sink other's sites was pretty stupid. Lastly, Fortune 500 companies are not always what the user is looking for when searching for goods and services and they often do NOT provide the best price or service compared to smaller more specialized companies.

    Its going to be what, another week before people get around this latest update? (We already see cracks in this update, in the last 24hrs)

    It all sums up to an EPIC FAIL. But they have share holders and they're just trying to not be gamed for a while.

    The people who cry about their websites are the unprepared people. It is not just only recently that we knew spam was not the best way forward, we have knew for ages, this is why I have always kept a good number of untouched websites back, with no backlinks, just average on page seo. If people would stop moaning about what has happened and get on with making new sites we could all help each other out like we have in the past. Talking about what you have lost will not help. I went into IM because I cannot stand being told what to do in a 9 - 5 and you are fucked if you think Matt and his gay chums are going to force me back into the 9 - 5 shitty situation.

    Why would they want all of the fortune 500 companies in the top 30 organic results?

    That means the biggest spenders i.e the major companies would all stop spending on adwords and because google have banned all the smaller compnaies there would be no one left to pay for advertising it doesn't make sense.

    Money; pure and simple.

    I looked at the latest Google revenue streams and 90% or more was from Fortune 500 Companies.

    Google could easily charge them monthly for their ranking position.

    For example, $1 Million per month to be #1 for "Cars", $900,000 per month to be #2 for "Cars", etc.

    It may sound far fetched, but it is not.
