    I think the problem is that you have a lot of competitors. So the 1st couple of lines should be written to increase the click through rate rather than worrying about SEO. For instance take a look at [ame="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=hawaii+Skin+Care+Products&btnG=Sear ch&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai="]search[/ame]

    If you search for keywords Natural Elements and other keywords targeted you will find the full meta description and I agree with Google because these kind of keywords are supposed to be high traffic.

    I just wanted to come back on your post Will and made a quick caculation.

    If I want to create a correct amount of good back links to my product pages, I will need more or less around 10 deep back links for each product and a total of at least 3000~5000 links.

    If I create backlinks to the categories powerful enough to distribute the link juice, it can be reduced to 1000 links, still hard to accomplish.

    Regarding how long I am in business and how long it took me to point 8,500 links to my index, I beleive that Google put an excessive goal perhaps unreachable to all e-commerce having page products.

    This goal is not feasable or will take many years to build.

    I think you have it all wrong. Google is not putting an excessive goal that's unreachable. It's your competitors that created that goal. You are competing with your competitors, you are not competing with Google.

    Your competitors have 8500 links to their websites on average, so that is what it is going to take in order for you to compete with them.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    It is not my competitors that create an alogorightm change or quality backlinks level, that's silly.

    I believe that my competitors are like me, and found that many pages indexed by Google before were removed for quality purpose.

    Perhaps you misunserstood my post, I hope this clarifies.

  6. After the MayDay update, SEMRush showed a SIX PERCENT decrease in the number of unique sites in the Google SERPs. Google is pushing the little guys out of the SERPS and pushing traffic to the brands.

    Remember what Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, said: "Brands are the solution, not the problem. Brands are how you sort out the cesspool."

    To Google, you and I and all other small business people are "the cesspool" which they have to deal with in order to convince people to use their search engine. Google's job as a search engine would be a lot easier if their could just list the top ten brands on each search results page.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    That's a great analyse, I guess.

    Schimdt can say what he wants, Brands have better things to do than focus mainly on internet. The brands develop a chain of distributors and brick and mortar retail stores, that's how the main economy work. Google wants to re-write the function of internet which was: Brands Product discounted, or brands without presence locally.

    The worse and perhaps the big scam is that Google make small businesses hope that with their Adwords system they will increase their sellings.

    As you can see Yahoo, Bing ate a tiny part of the Google market and if they play smart, they will take even more. Facebook and Twitter are doing great in term of traffic and Facebook is very succesful with their Advertising system.

    Google know that the search engine market is saturated in US, and they try very hard to put any gadget in the throat of people like Android, Chrome, Google mobile, Adsenses to place their Adwords system on their index and on their affiliate network.

    More they will beat webmasters and more word of mouth will play against them. Some small business will go in bankruptcy, some will close their businesses and other will tune their sites for other search engines or networks.

    It will not happen overnight, but I bet progressively.

    It seems like the Google team is trying to adjust or correct the new algorithm.

    IMO it is excessive to see 300 pages indexed and removed from my competitors who have much more pages than my site.

    My question is simple: Do you think they screw up their index with the new algorithm?
    I found a good article Google Confirms “Mayday” Update Impacts Long Tail Traffic

    Matt Cutt says “it’s an algorithmic change that changes how we assess which sites are the best match for long tail queries.”

    The mayday ranking change puts more emphasis on "quality" over relevance. Quality usually means more "link juice" and unique contents.

    Some suggestions include adding "user reviews" and "internal linking (and anchor text) structure with things like recommended items and lists."

    90% of user reviews are fake LOL, sorry to say that but when a customer was happy by our services, they don't make it public.

    Quality based on link manipulations or link farms they don't even give a damn to take down? LOL

    What a good laugh...

    I suggest always aiming to develop a brand initially rather than going for the keywords right away.

    So say you want to create a site about horse hoof files for a micro niche (try not to laugh too hard). I would probably register a domain name like: horsehooffilemystro.com Then it's easy to brand yourself all over the place as the mystro of Horse hoof filing.
