Google not fu*king about

31 posts in this topic

As a popular (or should that be once-popular) lyrics website has found out, Google is the almighty power on the Internet. And it is not to be crossed.
 
It all started when Rap Genius, a service that lets users look up lyrics and discuss their meaning, tried to bend the rules. The site posted a message on Facebook asking bloggers to become affiliates - if the bloggers promoted Rap Genius's Google ranking by linking to its coverage of a new Justin Bieber album, Rap Genius would promote their blogs on social media.
 
Google was not impressed. The exact details of how Google orders its results are a closely guarded secret, but the number of links to a site are a significant factor. The more links, the bigger a site must be, and the higher it should appear in its results.
 
So when Google discovered a direct plan to artificially boost the number of links, it blacklisted the site: now it was not on the first page of search results, or the second but buried on the seventh page. To Google - and all who rely on it - Rap Genius was dead.
 
Rap Genius’ traffic soon plummeted and Twitter filled with users asking why the service had been deleted from the Internet.

Yeah read this on Fact earlier. SMH, they shouldn't have been so bait to call it a 'hack' to the people they were working with.

Everyone who knows about SEO knows Google penalise those who try and break the system.

Imagine how them venture capitalists are feeling, that $15m investment just took a nice hit.
