1.- Altough we are used to see how the “Almighty Google” can launch the best online services, the only thing that made Google better or different in the past was and is still their great search algorithm. Google Plus is not based on any algorithm and is just a copy of similar services offered in real social networks like Facebook or Twitter. In spanish we like to say “Zapatero a tus zapatos”, and in english you would say “The cobbler should stick to his last” that means, Google please keep working on offering great results and dont mess up SERPS with “glossy buttons”.
2.- Google has fighted for decades against link farms, black hat SEO techniques, and manipulations in SERPS and now with “Google Pluff” starts the real SERP and SEO Battle. Why? Cause now the Google results pages could be manipulated by a manual interaction and the poor “search algorithm” is going to be so sad …
3.- Yesterday I just received this email offer: 500 +1′s for the great price of $349. This is the first sign I saw that makes me think seriously about what Google is doing and the next SEO Battle is going to have place in Google Results Pages.
Take a look:
- “good content quality”
- “good user experience”
- “fast loading pages”
Is “Google Pluff” going to be a shortcut for spammers to reach first SERP positions?
It depends on Google. I hope not.
