Does Google favor its own? (BlogSpot)

Been joining several SEO contests in the last couple of years and only recently did I noticed that Google seems to be giving favors to its own products and services.

Take for example YouTube. When it was not yet bought by Google, you don’t see videos in the search results. But now, just look at the Google search results:

Google Youtube

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

So, let’s just say that Youtube video for the keyword “thriller” is appropriate in the results. Why not put videos from Revver or Metacafe too? Why just YouTube? Does Google have a preferential bias towards its own? Looks like it.

How about Blogger? Just this afternoon, one of my workshop participants, Joaquin Vocos, used Blogger instead of for his blog. A few hours later (about 3 hours), he was already ranking in the Google search results for his name.

The other blog posts and pages that had his name published on an earlier date on are nowhere to be found. All of the results are coming from BlogSpot.

The lesson — if you wanna be indexed very quickly, use BlogSpot. Because Google loves its own. But don’t you think it’s a little unfair?

  1. Opposite to false belief, liposuction cannot make your unwanted fat disappear just like that. Undergoing plastic surgery may be an ideal option for most. Of course, that does not mean that if your skin is not where you want it to be that there is no hope for you. Your best bet is to gain more awareness through research.

    While you need to balance everything if you choose Blogger then, it’s fine do your SEO techniques like with WordPress.

  6. The first thing you must understand is that there is no physical exercises that can reduce fat from a specific parts of the body. When you burn fat for energy, as during an aerobic activity, fat loss will occur systemically, i.e., from all over the body. But since fat distribution naturally varies from person to person, depending on inherited genetic factors, some people will tend to lose abdominal fat faster while others may lose fat at say hips or thighs faster. So do not compare your abdominal fat loss graph with others.
