Revising Your Site - What Happened To My Search Engine Placement?
By Martin Lemieux

As of September, Smartads went through what so many have done
before. I changed the entire site. I knew what it meant. It
means that your search engine placements your probably so
proud of are probably going to be lost in the process.

Sad but true. See, search engines are getting smarter, not only
are they getting smarter but they do what you do. When you
change a design, typically you change it for a couple of reasons.

1) You don't like the design anymore
2) You've learned knew tips on how to optimize your site better
for search engine placements.
3) Your revising your services
4) You baught an old domain name

Whatever it may be, you're changing something. Now it won't
happen right away but eventually, if your site already has a
good search engine ranking, then search engines will find out
what you've done.

But "se's" aren't human? That's correct but they were built by
humans. Most se programmers realize that eventually something
changes and since they want their search engine to be the best,
they try to recognize your changes right away but there's only
one problem.

What do they do with the listings you have right now? Well, let's
say for instance you are attempting to change everything for the

Now let's also say that you HAD a page title called "good rank".
Search engine's previously know and still think that your page
is all about "good rank". Moving along, your new page information
is about "Getting a better rank". Your old placements are now
wrong in the eye's of search engines. They now realize that
something has changed. So what are they going to do?

Dump your old listings and start over! Ouch is right. So why
would you ever want to change your site if that's the case?

Well here's some food for thought: Yes, you may loose your
existing rankings but your roots are growing. Your new pages are
growing bigger and better than before, it just takes a small
transitional period to take effect.

For instance, within Google, Smartads had over 580 pages found
when looking at all the links to smartads. Since we changed the
whole site, there was a 2 day period were none of them were
listed anymore. Normally, I would of gotten scared right away
if I didn't know that my site had changed.

Not 4 days later, not only were my pages back but the old rotten
pages that weren't being used anymore got dumped and the many
new pages got listed. All in all around 680 pages now. That
was a jump of around 100 pages were added. Cause and effect.

Here's another example for you. Most of us know about link
popularity within Google. You've put all your effort into
promoting your main page. Within all of the links that you've
had placed on other sites, you gave your link title "Great Ranking
Services". Once google saw your link, it started looking to see
whether your information on your site is relevant to "Great
Ranking Services" and awarded you appropriately.

Moving along a little, you've not only changed your site but
you've also changed your link title to better fit the new content
on your main page. The new link you now add on other sites reads
something like this; "Boost Your Search Engine Rankings".

Before you changed your site, you got a GREAT rank for "Great
Ranking Services" when people searched online.

Here's the catch. Now that your promoting a new site, a new
page, new content within your page, the old content relavance
goes straight down the drain. Search engines have recognized that
everything has changed and are not paying any attention to your
old links anymore. Yes, they still help your link popularity, but
they don't help your content relevance.

See, search engines are consistently trying to improve their
content relevance. That's what people want. If they search
"gidgets & widgets", they expect to get the best results for
"gidgets & widgets".

In Conclusion:

If you plan on changing your site, be prepared to suffer for a
small amount of time. Prepare yourself for the worst because the
best is yet to arise and prevail.

I understand that we all want better search engine rankings and
just be ready to do what ever it takes, even if it means loosing
your old se placements for some newer, fresher ones.
