Is Google Broke? Google’s February 2016 Search Algorithms Update

It’s been very crazy new year so far when it comes to Google search and the way Google is responding to most search queries, I am of an opinion that Google’s been broke, I can very clearly see Google’s returning erroneous search results to most queries and weird websites ranking on the entire Google’s first page and even the same URL taking half of the space on next page

As in my previous post I have shared my opinion with all my readers and was the first one in the UK to report Google’s search update in the very beginning of January, I am seeing a very crazy response to my search queries, okay I can be wrong but I am not wrong

“Discount furniture” was returning search results from website directories and hardly showing a website link on, on Google UK, Google have been returning weird results for “SEO UK” and that too of websites that are abusing the wiki and whose website backlinks are all “no follow”

The website which have been ranking for most “seo related queries” is a brand new domain, getting all its links from duplicate press release URLs, weird wiki links and abusing several other sites on the internet with weird content published on each resource

The whole world is saying, It is a Google update, I know Google is making number of changes in their Algorithms, I know and I remained the first person on the internet that has reported this Google January 2016 update, and even the February 2016 Search update by Google

I have a very strong opinion that during the Google algorithm changes were being made, they have suffered a worth amount of technical difficulties and were hard to correct things until now, but I can be wrong too, I will like to think Google’s been broke from end December 27th of December 2015 and they are doing everything to make things work “Problems happen everywhere” I will also like to think, Google wanted to push an update by 1st January 2016

There is a lot we can talk about at the moment and make guesses, the situation is not very much clear especially on Google UK, weird activity have been seen on and, however (Google America) seems to be all fine as well as most other Google domains

In my own opinion, Google is more localising their search which they always planned and give reward to those which have responsive websites, a trustworthy backlinks profile in place, great seo copy written for website visitors as well as great social media marketing profile and buzz there and relevance are the utmost factors of Google search in 2016

If you are seriously looking forward to rank your business on Google and want to establish long lasting search engine rankings, then you need to work on the old theory, good link building profile, local trust (local business establishment), positive reviews, good products and pricing as well as responsive websites and newsworthy content

Google would not penalise you until unless they have a strong reason to believe that you are manipulating their search results by establishing a good link building profile by using the tricks Google do not allow, be straightforward, do good work and you are safe!

Hire a good SEO Company if you are too busy doing other stuff you specialise at and leave your content creation, seo and backlinks profile and social media to the experts that can do better and with ethics and guidelines in mind

I will write again when I have more to share, hopefully soon, let’s all hope, this Google update only hurts which deserve a penalty and not those which have always done a good seo job

Do you sweat blood and tears for your seo customers?

It’s been a very crazy day so far, very tiring – indeed. I had been invited for a seo meeting in Colindale (North London) where I had to represent the Search Engine Optimisation Company I work with. I have done loads of research before I visited the customer

I enjoyed having word with this really potential marketing lady with loads of knowledge about PR, Backlinks development, designing and development of websites, articles creation as well as keywords weight, density, audio and video presentation and whole lot of more, it was a toughest meeting in 2016 so far but I must admit there was a lot to learn and teach, as a matter of fact

Our meeting lasted for an hour and I have been told to go ahead and propose the keywords, onsite suggestions, offsite brief as well as the changes needed in the web designing, development, blog and their content, I knew it is a final test and I would be a happy man to have yet another customer signing up for our seo services – which is great as we have been getting really busier after the new year evening

I have spent over 6 hours to find the logical keywords, I am not boasting but literally 6 hours, I have compared their website with top 100 ranked websites and was able to find the top 20 keywords which could help with massive ROI, Traffic increase by spending as little as they can (They are happy to allocate even a massive budget but I do not do rip-offs)

Anyhow, I have emailed them the keywords list with local monthly searches and with special notes about ROI, how soon to expect rankings increase as well as what are deliverables from ours and their end, the entire brief of our seo strategy, the cost, time frame, how to pay, terms and conditions and so forth – I know none would be able to beat or match our seo quote, I am 100% sure about it, looking at the total work that needs to be carried out

I am not saying other seo companies work as hard as I do towards my customers excellence and business promotion online but I must say if there are good seo companies I am probably one of them (Small wit great boast), there was Alex (one of our top client form England since many years), and whilst I was signing out for today he quoted “You know why I like you – because “I hardly met as hard working seo person as you” – I said I try, but I know I was more than happy to have such compliment and especially when I was really tired

Thanks once again Alex.

Oh by the way – This entire week is very crazy and the week after I am starting few new seo projects – and there are few web design and development project (an online shop for a glassware business and one for a Kitchen Supplier and then there is one for Cleaning Company that covers London, Suburbs and Surrey

Wish me luck guys and lets all work as hard as we can and do the good seo work in order to get rid out of those guys which still manipulate search engine rankings because they have got money, resources as well as they wish to be over night milliners (I am more than a happy man if my bills are paid on time)

And you are wrong, I am not sleeping yet; I am going to start to work on a seo strategy for a transportation business for next month (a client using our services since July 2015 and do the seo audit for a law firm from Hammersmith

Good Luck and Good Night All – Stay tuned!
