Is Google Eating Itself?

Written by Fraser Hannah on Wednesday, 17 August 2011. Posted in Search Engine Marketing, Internet


Content, content, content are Google’s watchwords. Create great content that users want and you will rank well in the search results.

It seems straight forward – Yes?

NO - far from it

Google appear to have thrown all that to the wind. For some time now I have noticed the huge rise in directory listings within the search results. I understand that directories have a place, but if I am looking to find a builder through Google, I want to find a builders website, not a directory listing this builder or that builder.

If I wanted a directory I would have typed Yell, Thompson or another such company into the search box.

What’s the surprise in that you may ask, after all Egypt is not exactly a democratic country?
