Search Engine Optimization and [possibly, of course, now possibly] GOOGLE

That may have been the most fascinating article I’ve read this century.  I’ve had worsening problems finding things.

You optimize something by throwing in every key word that you can think of, even at random.  You could put:  kitchen chef, Chevy, remote control airplane, two cycle engine (runs good), set of new 17 ” radial muddies–and end up looking, for instance–porn.  That has been done at intervals on the net, incidentally.  That’s why picking the top entries on Google is for the very adventurous; they tend to be manipulated listings.

Once again, I implore anyone who might read and who hasn’t–get Web of Trust.  It’s free, user-maintained, and a lot of the virus engines even use it.  Mind you, some sites get marked as evil that aren’t, and I have yet to hear of a site that hasn’t been hacked.

Anyway, Google owns Thumbtack and its little baby Search Engine (referred to hereafter as BSE), and Thumbtack (heavily illustrated in that article I’ve linked, and it’s not hard reading) just optimized the ____ out of stuff.  Against Daddy’s rules (Google).  So they get this really heavy punishment and their results are on the 4th page of Google–no matter what the results are.  Now mind you, this is somehow a paid search engine (evidently a Yellow Pages you have to pay to get into…which you doin the Yellow Pages, too, or did).  This was a heavy punishment that always lasts something like three months apparently.

But a miracle of sweetness occurred!  Google showed its divine mercy!  The punishment lasted merely a week, and they were back to being close together again.

One’s heart melts.

And one nods one’s head and realizes; yes, it’s becoming harder and harder to get past preprogrammed results that actually have nothing to do with what you want to see, at times.  It really isn’t my imagination.  However, if you look at what I just wrote, I did hint something.  Keep on trying and rewording.  If it isn’t accepting the demarcations for something, change from commas to brackets to quotes (single then double).  Deliberately switch search engines.  There is Tor and Comodo Dragon and I have nothing else to say; the ‘visible’ portion of the internet is after all the smallest part.  I haven’t been to the invisible portion in many years.

No, I do have something to say.  Don’t.  It’s not healthy.  If you can get through it, that really is a fascinating article, but it is long.
