There have been a fair few algorithm tweaks from the world’s favourite search engine of late, all in the name of providing more reliable results for its users.
What will they call the new updates? Let’s get the old crystal ball out.
I predict that the next few major Google algorithm changes will be named thus:
Google Skunk Update
Google Zebra Update
Google Badger Update
Google Friesian Cow Update
They could go for a two part dog themed update:
Google Border Collie Update
Google Dalmatian Update
Perhaps they’ll chuck an animal in completely from left field.
Google Quagga Update (Was that brown and white? Never mind – it’s a good word.)
Perhaps they won’t even go with animals at all…
Google Minstrel Update – that’s one for the *much* older generation I think.
Google… Michael Jackson Update? That’d be Black OR White of course.
Whatever they decide to go with next, I have to say that I am a big fan of both the Penguin and Panda updates. Not sure they’ve quite caught all of the dirty rascals with their all their link spam and duplicate content just yet, but I guess they’re on the case.
Meanwhile I’ll just sit tight and wait for the Google KILLER WHALE update!
Has your traffic been affected by the Penguin update? Stay tuned to the blog for tips on how to deal with it. Coming up next week sometime…
