    I have never heard anyone say, "The quality of Google's search results sure have improved over the past two years." In fact, I don't think most people have noticed anything other than the way that they have garbaged up local search results.

    I think it was a good idea to go after the ultra-spammy sites, but those sites didn't show up in top positions very often. The problem is that there are too many good sites that have lost 50% or more of their traffic due to Google's shenanigans.

    We know that Google does play politics. There are too many conservative sites that have always had a very difficult time developing Google traffic. I don't see Google as being much different than ABC, CBS, NBC, or MSNBC. Certain types of news are actively censored by these media outlets due to their pro-Obama agenda and it is moving the country to the left.

    I think we would all like to hear your theory.

    Hi,

    I have been in No Man's Land forever. I really think the key is to create ways to drive traffic and not worry about what google is doing.

    I am very surprised not more are focused on this. Being anti social is usually the excuse I hear from people not interested in promoting via Facebook. I see people with zero skills make a killing just by running a community people are happy with.

    For blood type dating go here. If your blood type is rhesus negative, go there. If you are bored and feel like liking a Facebook page, hit this one.

    I use Facebook primarily to interact with friends in private, but it's a simple matter to set up separate public fan pages and business pages that have nothing to do with your personal friends. Although, it doesn't hurt to ask your friends to check out your new fan page etc.

    And post videos to YouTube.

    Best way to go:

    Keep your profile private. Have a public page. Feed blog posts into the page via networkedblogs.

    About inviting friends to your page:

    I would think twice about that. Or select which friends might be interested in it. If the page is a playground to just promote your site, I wouldn't do it.

    It's still unclear to me the exact definition of "No Man's Land". Perhaps? "No Man's Land" is actually the traffic that goes to Adwords, Google properties, Google direct answers and the non-commercial sites like Wiki and to large Edu authority sites.

    If this is the case, Big Business's traffic share dropped from 45% to 30%. Small businesses were wiped out going from 45% to 10%.

    If a thread of this forum ranked for a certain keyphrase, it would be considered no man's land.
