This article starts at a time when if I offered any smart webmaster the choice of #1 spot in Alta Vista for just a single day or #1 spot in Google for the rest of the year he’d take the Alta Vista, thank you very much. Yes, a long time in internet years.
Google did. They created it. And then they killed it. Dead. In the beginning there was no Google. There were directories and other search engines that operated in a vastly different way to the current Google behemoth. When Google came along they established themselves largely on one unique selling point: Their way of establishing relevance for any given search phrase. For the first time ever a search engine used a citation based model where every link was considered a vote for the page it was linking to google search scraper. They called it Page Rank and it was the mainstay of their algorithm. Simplistically put: pages with more incoming links ranked better. Of course, nobody could predict how large a market share of Search Google would control. For a small and insignificant search engine it didn’t make sense for webmasters to spend time and money chasing links in an attempt to improve their ranking.
But, as Google got bigger and bigger, it became more and more worthwhile to hunt for links. And to exchange links, beg for links, pimp for links or plain steal them (drive-by blog spamming). A whole industry build up around links. From the simple web-rings you now had link exchange programs, automated links exchange programs, link clubs, links in forum signatures, buying and selling of links, buying and selling of sites for PR (links), link cooperatives and a whole new lexicon from “link tarts” to “guest-book spamming” to “no-follow tags”.
The value at a rock concert is the sound. But when millions of other people are making their own unrelated sound and amplifying it with sophisticated tools then you can’t hear the music anymore. And the link noise was disrupting Google’s way of determining relevance. If they stuck with their links-determine-importance algorithms they were easy prey, their results could be manipulated by people with the most money/best technology, searchers would lose respect in Google to churn out relevant results. So, Google had to evolve and they had to drop links as the main and sole arbitrator of value. It wasn’t in their interest to tell you or me about the change… so they didn’t.
If they were not using citations as the sole determinant of rankings they had to find something else. And it had to relate to what the users wanted. If users were searching for content on how to improve their ranking in search engines they didn’t want a page of links, they wanted an article like this one giving them information or a perspective on the subject of their current interest. Google figured this out a while ago and started making subtle changes to their algorithms to reward content.
Webmasters weren’t far behind. They cottoned on that sites with a lot of content seemed to be well rewarded and that started the rush for content. They figured, in fact, that the content didn’t even need to make sense. In a fashion similar to the earlier rush – innovation and money made a lot of difference. Whether Google predicted it or not they were under attack again. Programs that auto-generated thousands of pages of useless text started going mainstream. Tens (hundreds?) of thousands of webmasters were feeding in seed keywords for the autogenerators to pump out the trash. Then there were the scrapers: Take a small bit of text for each site but if you do that enough times you have a lot of content. And the translators: Take someone’s 100,000 word English site, translate it to German via one of the free webtranslator services – which largely mangle the syntax and content to an unintelligible mush – and translate it back to English again (double-mangling, if you will) and you’ve got a non-copyrighted volume of content using your chosen keywords (together with semantic relatives).
Recently one of my blog readers emailed me to ask a quick way to earn money online. I am not an expert but today I am going to share a trick to boost online money earning using Google trends. I saw that this trick is one of the hottest earning methods from AdSense and affiliate link. Because popular keyword and popular product related talks can bring more traffic plus revenue from a Blog. You can use this method one of your test blog to see how fast you can earn from online or from any pay per click program like AdSense. I believe this can help you to earn some quick revenue from PPC.
Before you start I need to remind you one little bad side. The bad side is this trick may take some time if you are starting a new blog. Your blog need to be indexed on the search engine at first. Until then you can’t earn from AdSense without any traffic on your site. Hopefully Google will index your site quickly if you use Google trends. Check the free requirements for this plan and follow the steps to start your own fast money earning blog:
