Google Tackles Low Quality Content Farms
In an effort to reduce “internet spam” which is duplicate and ripped off content by site owners trying to cheat their way into top 10 ranking on search results, Google is implementing updates to their algorithm marking the year 2011 as the year where content scrapers goes to hell!
The blogs and forums on the world wide web is filled with comments and posts by bloggers and web masters on this important update.
There are many such citations about this here.
What Does This Mean?
As per Matt Cutts, a well known engineer from Google…
“The net effect is that searchers are more likely to see the sites that wrote the original content rather than a site that scraped or copied the original site’s content”
This is good news for those who are writing original content as well as the web searcher who is looking for the best content from the original source.
What Should You Do?
Well, we all know that Google does not like spam. Besides, low quality content may work temporarily but, it will hurt you in the long run. You will be able to see high bounce rate from the Google Analytics data as well. The solution to spam is simple. Here’s what we recommend:
- First, create high quality and useful web content for your site visitors.
- Then, optimize the web pages of your website for Google.
- Finally, get other websites to link back to your site to show Google that your site can be trusted.
It may take you longer to get high rankings but, focusing on ethical search engine optimization is the only way to build a thriving and lasting business online.
