    Trying to out-guess Google's specific algorithm changes is a futile exercise. Even when they announce changes, you are left to figure out the implication for your site on your own.

    It's better to focus on the long term trends, in any event. Google is clearly trying to deliver search results that highlight good content, so improving your content is the place to start. The trend is also to reward sites with lots of content, so that a site like WebMD is likely to outrank a very small niche site focusing on a particular disease, all other things being equal. So adding content is a must.

    Finally, incoming links from authority sites continue to be a major factor. Links from low-quality sites, particularly ones that target the same keyword over and over, will have less and less value.

    The search engines are ALWAYS making changes to the algorithm, Google probably more than others. It's the nature of software: you find bugs or think of new things to add and also want to improve your software. These changes are often small and don't impact the results. They just save a few clock cycles and are more efficient. Not a big deal on your desktop PC but not when you're a Google dealing with millions of queries each day.

    Changes that impact the results are also usually small and happen all the time. Nobody notices them because there is little impact in most cases. As BA said, it's futile to try and out-guess Google and the changes they may make. You're one person against hundreds of PhDs. Just try to understand the big picture of what they want and work towards that.

    This is very good to hear:

    Overall, I think the only way to live is to focus on quality from now on. Google is becoming increasingly clear that tricks will no longer work. Even if they do, they won't work for very long.
