Googles " Florida " Algorithm Are There Any Winner

Post by braveheart007 » Mon Jan 05, 2004 3:00 pm

Has anybody's ranking actually increased since the " Florida " algorithm was introduced in November or is it all bad news ?
what is bad news is the fact that Googles " Dancing " isn't over yet
so what steps have all you taken to protect those valuable positions on Google ?
jimb has started the ball rolling with this very good post which I'm sure everybody else can add there own little pieces of advice .

hope Google is playing fair with your site
best regards

googles has been terrible at finding actual content since they changes it imo. just turns up more ads and bs sites.

The "Florida Algorythm" is just a new way Google started to sort out its results late last year. Some sites dropped down in rankings as a result, and some rose considerably. The algorythm itself is unkown to anyone outside google. The "Florida" was a major departure from their previous sorting methods.

Since then, Google has "tweaked" its algorythms in may minor ways, which add up to it being an essentially different formula altogether now.

Trying to pin down exactly how Google sorts results is like trying to catch a greased pig on steroids. Its always moving, and you're never really all that sure what they were doing in the first place. For most of us, the best way of dealing with this is to follow the basics of making your site search engine friendly. There are people out there who do nothing but track google and try and tweak their own sites, and how they show up in Google.
