    Something i've just thought of...

    If google does implement this, if you mention words such as "I" etc a lot will it penalize you?

    What new filter?

    Google has a new patent which goes a good way toward explaining the new filter.

    The crux of which seems to be based around LR (oh joy, another acronym) Local Rank which is a devise constructed to yield better results and (repeat quote): "prevent any single author of web content from having too much of an impact on the ranking value. "

    A patent does not equal implementation. People have been bringing that patent up to explain things for a long time, long before this most recent update.

    Besides, there are some glaring problems with it.

    I'm trying to decide on the best keywords for a new site. I'm looking at reasonably competitive terms. The #1 site for the keyword term I am interested in has NO keywords in the on page content at all!

    I just wish they would just sort all this out one way or the other. I can't make any new sites because I can't work out which phrase to go for as everything could completely change within the blink of an eyelid.

    The problem I see with that patent is that it deals with ranking sites more than pages and pages are what come up in search results, not sites.

    According to this, google thinks the new results are better.

    I can't see how google can think the results are better. Only yesterday I picked up a magazine where the editor had written a whole article about alternatives to google, because the results were so bad.

    From reading that, the google person says that affiliate sites have been penalized. Is this supposed to be true?

    I didn't read the whole thread. Penalizing all affiliate sites is too "general". So I doubt it's all that important really. I still find tons of affiliate sites in the results too.
