Domain crowding issue is possibly solved

Being the search engine with the majority of the user share in Europe, I am sure the majority of you would have either personally or indirectly (as it has been reported to you) experienced the “Domain diversity” problem.

What is Domain diversity problem?

I bet that an image is worth more than 1000 words. Problem is that after the new update announced by Matt Cutts, the query results I found in the past appear effectively to offer a better user experience. So, in order for you to understand, have a look at this site where another SEO discussed about the domain diversity problem.

Did you notice something strange in this SERP? Yes, that loads of results belonging to the same domain was very odd and useless.

A back dated problem

The domain crowding was a problem that in theory Google addressed back in April 2012 with the release of a new project called Horde.
However, SEOers around the world and perhaps users all know the truth and counting the complaints I received may become a new hobby that I don’t really want to engage with.

The situation appears to have changed now, and a recent update released last Friday should have fixed the situation. This is really good news and I wish to further discuss with you if you find some oddities.

Matt Cutts twit about Google Horde

In short it destroys domain diversity in search results and as a consequence, the search result quality is reduced.
