I am tired of reading other SEO practitioners telling each other that this is the long-term algo from Google and we had best get used to it. Maybe they are right maybe they are wrong. Either way, I don’t think there is enough evidence in yet to say one way or another what Google is really up to. Quick tip colleagues, we are considered the experts. People listen to us and take our words quite seriously. Before telling webmasters to recode their sites or other SEOs to retool their promotions, I think we should sit back, observe, analyse and draw slowly formulated conclusions. I realize how difficult it is to tell a desperate client that they will have to wait for accurate information but I assume they will appreciate me for preaching patience until we have a collective handle on what is happening. Anything else seems very irresponsible to me. It blows me away how many people read our words but there are about two dozen of us who seem to carry a lot of weight with the public. Let’s be a bit more responsible and only give answers when we know what the REAL questions are.
