The Changing World Of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Just when you think you have figured out how best to leverage search engine optimization (SEO) to effectively promote your business and website, Google changes things up. Last month, marketers began to notice changes in Google’s algorithms but no one expected anyone at Google to comment on these changes. And then, uncharacteristically, they did.

Google tells us that changes have been made to its primary algorithm which measures quality content. These changes are related to how often content is shared across social media channels, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on a website. The following article spells out these changes in more detail: http://searchenginewatch.com/sew/how-to/2409919/has-google-turned-up-social-signals-as-a-ranking-factor

Change can be frightening, especially when your business and livelihood are on the line. While there is no reason to panic, the changes Google has put in place are an important reminder of why it is crucial to have a solid SEO strategy in place. A strategy that is focused not only on sustaining your current SEO ranking but on increasing it, as well. Your SEO strategy also should ensure that you avoid penalties that lead to poor rankings. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/246371?ctp=BizDev&src=Syndication&msc=FoxNews
