On May 22, Google began using its new Penguin 2.0 search “algorithm adjustment”. According to Google, it closely examines a site’s links’ quality and emphasizes its social links. One result is that Google now lists only one article by a single author, regardless of how many articles he’s written, on a WordPress site.
Google continues to change the rules as the game progresses. On a few occasions over the years my website has suddenly fallen from number 1 for a given search phrase to oblivion for many weeks, and only slowly recovered. In the meantime, I lost business. There was no explanation from Google.
Google giveth and Google taketh away.
The occasional wild swings in Google search results makes me suspect that the algorithm may have gotten away from them: too many cooks.
