Am I "un-optimising" My Webpage ?
Posted 17 September 2009 - 10:13 AM
We receive guest comments via email and then, word for word, we type them into our dynamic backoffice.
These guest comments are "new content". As I understand, new content should be a "plus point". Would we get more plus points if the search engines were to realise that the comments were from the general public, and not from ourselves ? If so, is there a way to "tell the engines" that these comments are the opinions of the public ?
By continually adding guest comments to the page, is this having a negative effect on the originally optimised page, because 1), the word count is getting so high and 2) because the new guest comments contain hardly any "optimized content" (diluting our originally well-optimised page) ?
Any comments will be greatfully received, Thank you.

No. Search engines aren't concerned with that sort of thing as far as I know.
Yes, it certainly could be doing those things.
First, are you sure that the search engines can even see/index the comments? Do they show up in Google's text cache? If so, then they do index it, if not, it's invisible.
If they do index it and if you find that the content is causing you to lose traffic for your previously optimized keyword phrases, perhaps you may want to think about moving the guest comments to pages for which you haven't optimized. This will provide you with natural long-tail traffic for the information used within the comments by your guests.
