The Google Update Eliminated Competition For Developers

The latest Google Algorithm update I covered a few days ago seems to be great news for developers. The low quality content farms and non unique content sites seem to have been the worst affected. On a personal note my some of domains  improved in ranking.

At first, I was a little scared about the update and really did not know what to expect, but after a few days I am very happy with the results. I think Google has gotten it right and rewarded the right sites.

I mentioned earlier on twitter I had a site that moved down from number one to number two on google and its back to number 1 now. I also have had a few other sites move up from the 4 to 5 position to 2 to 3 position on the first page. I have even seen a uptick in long tail traffic on my sites like my spypen  site.

The good news for developers is that,

The updated Eliminated much of Our Competition in the Search Results!

How many time have you developed a site just to have a content farm article or non unique site out rank you?

I reemeber seeing wise geek and other and sites out rank my sites. Look at this list of large sites that will no longer be a problem in the search engines for many keywords. There are many more on the full list.

wisegeek.com
ezinearticles.com
suite101.com
hubpages.com
Shopwikki.com
buzzle.com
articlesbase.com
business.com
merchantcircle.com
tradekey.com

This leaves the door open for domain developers to move in with quality sites that give the user value, and rank very well.

I am so excited about this update, it has helped developers have the advantage when building out quality sites. I am going to be building more minisites this weekend to take advantage of the new search results that no longer have all of the low quality sites that outrank mine.  Are you as happy with the changes as I am?

    As cool as it might seem in the short term, I wouldn’t go counting my chickens before they hatched. Those companies are BIG and they’ve got a lot of smart people on staff.

    It might take some time, but they’ll find a way earn back their lost ground. That said, if you’re on the upswing now, make hay while the sun shines!

    Brian,
    I couldn’t agree with you more. It is so nice to see that these generic sites will now find it more difficult to buy their way to the top of the page- they will now either disappear or have to create meaningful content. This is not only important as an owner of domains but also as an active user of the internet – I am tired of something worthless from one of the aforementioned companies coming up early in results while true local/relevant content is pushed down the page.
    Oh, and a belated Happy Birthday and welcome to the adult world – has hair started to grow out of your ears yet :)
