Google Privacy Changes, Trust Triggers, SEO, Speedlink 04:2012

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a great week. Following last weeks buzz about Google’s algorithm changes, Matt Cutts has clarified the issue about displaying too much ads above the fold. What it boils down to is that it is really not the quantity of the ads that matter, but rather the “space” those ads occupy, meaning, the sizes of the ads itself. Hesham wrote a post about this issue, so just head over there and read Google’s above the fold clarification.

Yet again from Google, this week, they announced that they are getting rid of over 60 different privacy policies across Google they now have and are replacing them with just one. According to Google, the changes will be a lot shorter and easier to read, covering multiple products and features, reflecting their desire to create one simple and intuitive experience across Google. If you are not aware of this, take a few minutes to read the updated Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. If you are using Google (any product or service), you automatically abide by these terms effective March 1, 2012.

What do think about these change?

  • I’ve now turned off Google, I haven’t been comfortable with all this big brother stuff anyway.

  • Awesome list as usual Fran. But I’ve read most of them :-P.

    Especially the Famous Bloggers’ post on ads is really extremely useful!

  • Although Google’s changes can be frustrating to many I do understand that they have to constantly update their policies as well as their algos to keep in step with the ever changing pace of TIME. We can either adapt and evolve too or get lost in the tides.

  • these 60 different privacy policies across Google is how much effect SEO and other ranking issue,it will be accurately found when it implemented.As will as Google providing some easy feature like easy sharing and tailor your search results.

  • It’s really good, 60 different privacy policies are replaced with one. Rather than a pile of policy, it would be much easier to clarify our self with just one policy

  • On the one hand it’s great Google has finally come up with one privacy policy – it’ll make the life of active Google products users a lot easier. But on the other hand I don’t like Google’s merging all its services. That smells like control over your Internet freedom. Thus you’ll have to log out each time you don’t want to be associated with Google.

  • Yes it is an interesting move by Google.

  • In every way, changes have their own pros and cons. Many may not like the changes that Google had made but they have their reasons in order to keep up with the ever changing things around.
