    The new Google quality guidelines are quite interesting.

    https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35769?hl=en#3

    Here is the news, A big part of the bad behavior for google is now related to scraped, spun and automatically generated articles.

    But, funny enough, little or thin content is not listed in the "bad behavior"' list from Google. So, it looks it is the return of the hard links era.

    Then, you can also find the usual suspects for Google. There is no change with the following practices:
    • Hidden links
    • Cloaking
    • Sneaky redirects (javascript redirect)
    • Excessive link exchanges
    • Advertorials
    • Keyword stuffing

    Webmasters with huge lists of sidewide links and links in the footer to different URLs should not worry. Webmasters with 2 tiers and 3 tiers one-way backlinks should worry even less.


    the big question now, will Google create a potential future algorithm from Google to detect spun articles and automatically generated content?

    But i guess that would cost a lot of money to Google to create such a algorithm because that would take many resources. Don't you think?

    From programming point of view, it is easy to find online duplicated content. That does not cost lots of money in terms of resources.

    Now if you have 200 spun articles with many synonyms in it. It means that the google robot will spend time comparing each word and sentence, article weights to see wether there are spun articles? This is a much harder job than comparing duplicate content.

    I only see ads above the fold on google.com search results. Are they gona penalize themselves?

    How does anyone take the google guidelines seriously when they don't?

    Scraped content? All of google search is scraped content.

    Ads above the fold? Above, beside and below the fold at google.com.

    Privacy policy? Yeah right privacy.

    Also, Adwords is a links marketplace. Except AdWords links make google money so they're not "illegal". Paying U$ 40 to place your link at the top of the search results is link selling, plain simply.

    These guidelines really pissed me off. Acting like they own the Internet or something.

    I posted an article here the other day regarding an University in Spain being able to detect translated and spun / rewritten text.

    In my mind there is no question Google can detect spun unless it's spun using Markov and made unreadble.
    But I doubt Google will spend those resources needed at this moment.
    There are other much simpler things they could go after, 1 article web 2.0s or simply devaluing open source plattforms etc

    The point to remember is when they devalue one thing
    they up the value of something else.


    BTW
    Google don't own the internet
    they just act like they do
    and the politicians are afraid to tell them

    Google quality guidelines doesn't mean that they are already following all they said with google ranking system.
    That is just what they would like to have and what they advice to webmasters, but are all that already in their algorithms nobody knows.
