    Implications of Google's New Algorithm
    Was curious if hard core couponers had given any thought to this shift at Google, and how it might effect them in search:

    Any impact? Nominal?

    Moved it to the SEO forum from Couponer's Corner as well.

    Taking this from the article:
    Today we’ve launched a change to our ranking algorithm that will make it much easier for users to find a large number of results from a single site. For queries that indicate a strong user interest in a particular domain.
    I would have to say it makes sense. If your search has a domain in it then that's what you are interested in.

    As to the effect. I don't think that Google does anything anymore without having a big effect on us. They hope to have all traffic flow through them, and in a way they can eventually monetize. I don't like it but can't blame them, because that's what I would do if I could.

    Trust: Just because it doesn't today doesn't mean it can't. The "coupon codes" search won't be impacted, but if Gap was smart, they would SEO landing pages for each type of coupon they offer.

    Wouldn't that change the results of the SERPs under this model?

    We can call it SEO if you want, but my question was aimed directly at couponers.

    Has nothing to do with coupons. Look at the examples I provided in my last post. I've shown you with a product like the iPod. There is no such example with coupons.

    "if Gap was smart, they would SEO landing pages for each type of coupon they offer."

    That would be insane, most merchants would never do that. They don't want everybody using them. If they did, they would just put them on the home page or a selection of them at checkout.

    And no, this Google change won't affect coupon sites. The idea is to provide the most relevant results for any given search and they're not going to want to have the same coupon site show up over and over again for a search.

    Again, this will mainly affect products, not coupons, and probably the bigger products like Ipods and the such because............. they want to push merchants and affiliates over to PPC. It's all about the $$$$

    edit, also moved it back to the wrong forum by request.
