An open letter to the Google algorithm
Dear Google algorithm,
I see from what you have done that I have REALLY offended you. You have reduced the amount of traffic you send here by 50%, so you must be very angry with me.
In view of this, I just want you to hear my side of the story…
I know you like to see blogs post content every single day, regardless of quality. I know you have ‘issues’ telling great content from crap, because you are just a piece of software, and that you use how regular someone posts to a blog as a way to determine the quality of that blogs information.
You really need to understand that the Google way of deciding value seems insane to us humans! If we used the Google quality model, a blade of grass, for example, would be of higher value than a flawless diamond. Grass is really common you see Google, but flawless diamonds are extremely rare.
I ‘could’ have written a few more posts this week, just to keep you happy Google, and I would have – only I decided to spend all my ‘blog time’, actually communicating with the people who read and comment in this blog!
Google – If you ever decide to start ranking blogs based on the quality of the writing, the quality of the comments and the number of people who actually read and comment there – we can be friends again. There are flawless diamonds in the comments section of this blog – if only you knew!
However, whilst you continue to rank blogs based volume over quality, you can take the worthless 0.4% of traffic you generate for me and poke it up your software driven, clueless *@*!$
Love and hugs,
