I was going to do something serious on Google today, but then realized that it is a beautiful day outside. Then I discovered that my dog ate my serious bone, so there had to be a new way to talk about Google slap!The Google Slap is what happens when Google decides to lower your Page Rank, because they believe that you did something wrong. The challenge is that they do not tell you what you did wrong or how to fix it. Therein lies the rub of the Google slap.
Google Slap Time!

It just feels with all the discussions going on about the changes with Google that some people are getting some TKO’s unnecessarily! There is a rumor going around that laughter is the best medicine. As the ancient art of Twitter has shown us. When they decided to put you in Twitter Jail for no reason, you must be find the nearest file to break out!
To all those who have suffered at the hands of the Google Panda Update, Schema.org, and countless other changes before that this ridiculous cartoon is for you!
Now, destroy the Google slap with some good old fashioned white hat seo!
Thanks for the lighthearted read Andy.
And yes, everyone please do “some good old fashioned white hat seo”
Glad you enjoyed that!
Didn’t know it was called Google Slap.^ ^ I was actually google slapped in one of my websites, from PR4 to PR2.. Hmm, at least it still left me with 2. Anyway, how do you call it if Google increased your PR?
Generally the Google Slap is when they completely defrock your page rank, but it is the same effect when you lose half your PR. When they increase your PR it is called about darn time!
Well, that is not at all funny … now of course I’m going to run, not walk to go check my page rank which I worked do damn hard to increase! Thanks for the heads up.
Sorry for the not funny depiction!
I have to say, I’m actually kind of glad your dog ate your serious bone, because I’m loving this cartoon instead! Too funny.
Glad you enjoyed the cartoon! I will not look to hard for my serious bone then!
I don’t think online marketers love to be slapped by google. Well, for the time being I haven’t experienced it yet but hope I won’t be. Anyhow, I like how smart you did this post.
No one wants to be slapped by Google. I hope you remain safe as well!
I’m not sure what happened to my blog, but now my traffic dropped more than 90% even worse
Btw I like the cartoon 🙂
I am sorry that your traffic drop was so huge! What happened?
