Here is a new little series of posts I am starting, best of Yahoo answers. When I have a bit of free time I try and answer some questions there, I will post some that recieved ‘best’ answer.
I have run google Ads. sense on my site for 10days, and this is the result?
Page CTR 0.04%
is this normal? if not what is wrong and what should I do?
I read a good informative post by Doug Caverly at WebProNews.com, it talks about some changes Google has recently made to their section on “What’s an SEO? It seems Google has taken down their warnings about SEO’s a few notches.
The old version mentioned “a few unethical SEOs” in the fourth line and then jumped into a list of warning signs. The revised help page introduces a negative in line three, but uses the gentler term “irresponsible.” From there, it names a lot of possible benefits.
Relatively neutral, background check-type questions follow, and then the same warnings eventually appear. It seems Google now has fewer qualms about nudging people towards SEOs, though, or has at least decided that its old description came off as too harsh.
Barry Schwartz deserves credit for unearthing the less-than-sweet version. And perhaps as another way of saying “sorry,” Google’s asking people to contribute their own SEO-related recommendations. Google has upset so many folks with it’s seemingly non discriminate penalties that it want to make nice with a portion of their professional user base?
