A profile is similar to a curriculum vitae or résumé. It introduces a person and characterizes them. A profile should make clear what kind of person is hidden behind it and what defines them.

Penguin 4.0: What the Google update accomplishes

November 16, 2016

Penguin 4.0

When webpage operators hear the term “Penguin” they do not associate it with the cute, black-tailed creatures of the Antarctic. They link it to a Google update that has driven one or two webmasters to desperation by making their perfectly search engine optimized webpage suddenly disappear from the Google ranking. The webmasters had to put a lot of effort into winning back the former rank. But what exactly does Penguin do? And which changes does the version Penguin 4.0 bring? What we can reveal is that Penguin 4.0 will make it simpler to undo penalties by Google.

What is Penguin?

Penguin is the name of an update that combines various changes of the Google ranking algorithms. Penguin’s goal is to suppress so-called web spam in the search results. “Web spam” is a term used to describe webpages that use unauthorized methods to achieve a better ranking in Google. Webpages with a better ranking are supposed to provide the searcher with enhanced value. This is not the case with web spam. These pages are written for search engines and their goal is to produce a large number of clicks.
The first Penguin update was released in 2012. Its effect was immediately perceptible. Many top ranking pages suddenly disappeared from the ranking. In English speaking countries, 3.1 percent of all search queries were affected. In Germany three percent of the search queries were impacted, and in Poland as many as five percent.

Define Your Own Crowd with the Building of Teams

October 10, 2016

building crowd teams

In our marketplace you can build any number of Clickworker teams for yourself, which can then either be chosen or excluded during the job creation process.

Usage of Expert Teams
Logically a team of Clickworkers can be put together whose previous work you have been especially pleased with. This allows you to direct the work upcoming jobs specifically to the Clickworkers on your expert team. In this way you can better guide the results and help align them with your expectations.

Usage of Blocklists
On the other hand a team of Clickworkers can be assembled that you wish to exclude from future tasks, and thereby define as a blocklist. This is especially useful when you personally weren’t as pleased with the results, for example their text style, produced by these Clickworkers. But it also makes sense to create a blocklist of Clickworkers for subsequent jobs like online surveys, to prevent the same workers from taking part in the survey again.

In the following, we explain step by step to you how the building of teams works.
