Eagerly awaiting the Penguin update 2.0
I’ve been disappointed with Google serps over the last few months. Even since they rolled out Penguin. Not because some of my own websites lost rankings, but because Google results now are not so relevant. Sometimes there are just two many results from the same website. I’ve always used Google to find stuff online, and I still do. Loyalty? Habit? Don’t know. For some queries Bing results are much better. My websites continue to maintain good rankings on Bing/Yahoo.
There was lot of buzz about Penguin 2.0 update recently on webmaster forums/blogs. If you do a search on Google custom search, results are different. Someone noticed the new results on Foxstart.com. Other sites like Blackle.com would also show different results than mainstream Google.
Notice the traffic spike on that day!
Matt Cutts said the update would be “jarring and jolting”.
If the search results on foxstart.com are a preview of Penguin 2.0 update, I welcome the update. Rankings have improved for my website. Don’t know how is the search quality overall.
