How To Stay Current With Ever Changing Goal Posts
Google has changed the way that they introduce algorithm updates by soft rollouts and live rolling updates, local algorithm updates and more. This causes a lot of unknowns until its too late as they don’t openly announce that changes are taking place.
We would typically notice a change in performance or shift in focus positions either up or down before correlating the data that helps determine that an update is actually in effect. So One method and it’s not the only one by far that we use is to monitor the main news outposts for updates.
SEO is constantly changing and Google is forever moving the goalposts on us. That’s why it is so important to keep up to date with the latest trends and strategies. Every week we go back to basics and analyse other blogs, our servers and crawl reports to ensure our clients and our future clients receive the best of the business, by achieving the best organic search practices, the latest strategies and modern trends in the search results.
We want to share our wisdom with you!
