    they are saying theyre killing spamming but now naturally you wont rank, if u make links manually u wont rank, theyre essentially making spamming and link building automation effective by requiring more and more links to rank (though that could be also effect of huge competition growing each day in every niche and not google updates)

    i dont know if they care this much but if yes then perhaps they will process english text better and devalue auto generated articles

    E.A.T https://moz.com/blog/google-e-a-t

    They don't want crap to rank, they want informative, quality content backed by an 'expert' as it makes the use experience better and that's their business at the end of the day. They are getting better at this all the time and I think this year will be more of the same with them pushing to refine their algo based on E.A.T

    i feels like a bomb when my visitors drops from around 30k to just barely maintain 5k UV/day.
    It's hard to maintain the spirit right now. so let it be what Google want to be.

    The future SEO basically contains only 2 parts:

    1) Google will keeping try to figure out what is the so called "good contents" by AI and give its deserved credits even its from a new website.
    2) Google will try to filter those "artificial links", only leave with those genuine, authority ones. (because link metric is so far the hardest to fake), then you guess what? Everyone else except real whitehat webmasters got fucked up.

    right, if you build links, you'r are spamming so you'll hit by algo and won't rank, and if you follow guideline, it will take years to decades to rank.

    they want quality more of bcz they want to make the user stick on their platform by not going anywhere, not even to those websites creating these quality content, different serp feature like zero pos, answer box, job, flight, hotel listing, products listing, google assistant and many more are the proofs.

    this is the fear everyone has gone through and going through...

    not only more expensive, but out of control also, there's nothing much one can do now.

    It never will happen.
    Because it's technically impossible.

    AI never will work, because it haven't the feelings.
    Where same words but in other context, can change everything.

    Google algo's base on historical data, where AI is more marketing that real.
    And you can find tons of Google patents where historical data are used - but you not will find any - where AI is used.

    The authority site have traffic, confirmed by many many ways.
    And of course PageRank gained from the links.

    Where one option without second - is enough clear signal that somebody try cheat the algo.
    Simple as that.

    Cheers, Greg.

    In my opinion, you underestimated the AI too much, it may sounds silly here and there today, but it will definitely change a lot of things in the near future, SEO will only become harder and harder, but no need to argue at here too much, time will tell then.

    We hear about AI from 20 years, but in reality not exists any simple example of this AI.
    Everything base on algorithms, which include only the signals which programmers included in algo.

    Where statistical data is very very useful and used in many Google algorithms.
    It's enough clever way to destroy at least 90% of SEO job - because SEO's doing a lot of fatal mistakes.
    No any AI is used here - "keep it simple"

    Google wants that you believe in AI, because how to deal with AI ?
    But in reality their algorithm base on historical and statistical data in clever way.

    Do you know how they deal with negative SEO ?
    By simple analyse statistical gain of links - for this reason negative SEO not working with any authority site.

    I agree - SEO will become harder, but only for those who don't know what they are doing - at the end they will say "it not working"
    Because in reality, a lot of knowledge and tests are needed to become the real SEO expert.

    I can't believe how SEO knowledge was destroyed over last years.
    So, after next few years - only tiny part of real experts will be able to play in SEO.

    This is the future of SEO.
    And no any AI is needed here.
    All kind of fake SEO gurus will do the job very well.

    Cheers, Greg.

    harsh reality but true, it will become harder and harder... and even if one will able to rank, Google will do everything to send the least number of visits to site.

    Updates were always here. Only thing that change is competition which is bigger, better every day. Every niche is covered by some strong authority sites that Google just love. Its hard to run some projects now as 1 person, you need a team. A few people who write for your own website/s so you always have fresh content, then few more people who do outreach and link building, someone who manage social media.. and of course quality is very important only then you are able to make something. For this you need a big budget, and if you don't have its going to be very hard or failure. Playing with some blackhat strategies and cheap seo packages to rank fast they still work in some cases (depending on niche or country) but sooner or later you will get manual review, or algorhitm will catch you and then problems. So, focus on every project like on a real business, invest as much as you can in your team find experienced people who will help you achieve what you want.

    recently got problems , errors which webmaster email me on AMP and breadcrumb.
    I don't give a dam but not sure is it really does affect. I see the traffic drop just this week .
    Last week it is quite ok and previous months or so.

    I don't know is it due to recently they got index issues? Someone posted an update recently from Google webmaster.

    If you got an email from the webmaster you must work on it. if everything looks good from your side, then just login to your webmaster and use inspection tool to verify and check the live version whether it fetches some error or not. btw if your traffic got decrease from last week then there is also a probability of getting hit by algo update.

    the direct answer might be, if this is your first project in SEO than you probably need to do it as part time. don't depend on one source of income. have a backup plan if things aren't in your favor.
