GoogleGuy Spills The News About Bourbon

Editor’s Note: The Bourbon update is underway at Google. Have you guys experienced any fluctuations? GoogleGuy suggests letting this play out before you panic. Discuss your thoughts about the update at WebProWorld.


In a thread run on WebMasterWorld entitled “Questions For Google Guy,” GG offered up this advice:

Clink. Google Guy Spills Bourbon. Cheers.

“Here’s the advice that I’d give now: take a break from checking ranks for several more days. Bourbon includes something like 3.5 improvements in search quality, and I believe that only a couple are out so far. The 0.5 will go out in a day or so, and the last major change should roll out over the next week or so.

“Then there will still be some minor changes after that as well. So my “weather report” along the lines of http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000095.html would be a recommendation that rankings may still change somewhat over the next several days.”

Lee Odden helped point out a few more interesting posts among a thread that runs longer than a Nazarene dinner prayer.

“I’ve been aching for a long time to mention somewhere official that sites shouldn’t use “&id=” as a parameter if they want maximal Googlebot crawlage”

“We only export new visible PageRanks every 3-4 months or so”

“I recommend absolute links instead of relative links, because there’s less chance for a spider (not just Google, but any spider) to get confused.”

“My opinion is that spam is getting hit faster, and that for the rest of this year, it will continue to get harder to spam.”

Once again, GG you’ve aided Googledom in escaping the clutches of presumptivitis. Cheers, big ears.
