They spend their days sifting through reams of market research data. They conduct endless surveys and focus groups.

"I was recently featured in a CNBC article about Penguin and the lack of updates (article here[1] ). After the author interviewed me, he went back to Google for comments on my claims. They responded by giving him some of my past Reddit posts: 1) where I asked about possibly buying an email list and 2) asking for feedback on getting my site to convert. Think about that for a second. Neither of those things have ANYTHING to do with my sites SERP rankings. It was only Google trying to imply that I must be a bad person and therefore I deserve to be indefinitely penalized by Penguin." #Google #not_evil #you_are_bad_pattern #manipulation #monopolies #pub

While also being diversified. #the_elite #status_quo #patterns_status_quo_lol #manipulation #the_boys_social_manipulation #pub
