The Google Farmer Update

If you’re involved in the search engine game, then you have undoubtedly heard about the latest update to the Google algorithm called the farmer update.

It is targeting scraper and low quality sites. Scraper sites have been filling up Google’s results lately and polluting them with regurgitated junk that has adsense on them. This update is supposed to go after those types of sites as well as just plain junks sites.

I’ve been following Google updates every since the beginning and one thing holds true even to this day. As long as you build a great site, promote it without spamming it, and get quality inbound links, then your site will most likely weather the storm of updates.

And, never build your business around traffic from search engines because it could come to an end at any time. You need to have a business model that will weather any search update storm and stand the test of time.
