The SEO world blogosphere this week was all about the ‘Farmer Algorithm Update’ of Google as this was indeed a major update to the algorithm affecting the SERPs. Everyone was discussing, coming to conclusions, sharing the news and views and also predicting the future effects of this upgrade on SERPS. This also was accompanied by the list of sites which were the losers and winner.
