We’ve talked about websites going Mobile-First for a while now and I think that’s a good thing. Mobile is essentially the primary way for people to access the internet as well as their social media accounts – and Facebook is one of the best examples for this.
Google is keeping up with their efforts in making search more efficient by valuing pages that offer more content. This is part of their campaign to help users find the best answers to their questions with whatever device that they are using. On the other hand, this also means that they have to devalue pages that have what we call “interstitial”.
I still can’t believe it’s already 2017 when it feels like only a few days ago that it was 2016. *Ba-dum-tss* okay, no more puns, I promise. Anyway, SEO is something that I’ve loved doing for a long time now. We’ve discussed many topics over the past couple of years and so, I’d like to take a step back and talk about something a little more basic: Mistakes.
It’s finally 2017 and here we are with out first post of the year so let’s make it a little special. Let’s get started.
Guest posting is one of the most important tools that an SEO practitioner has to be good at. This has been true from the beginning and this is even more true today where everyone is on the internet. The process is generally described to be difficult but fulfilling. From contacting a prospect to actually submitting your guest post, there are a lot of variables but the process is generally unchanged. What if you can make the process shorter or more convenient though? That’s what Guestpost.com is all about.
We’re at the wonderful time of the year when we’re right smack in the middle of perfecting our craft for this year while preparing to transition to newer, bigger things for next year. Before anything else, however, allow me to say from the bottom of my heart: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU SEO HACKERS!
Google has recently announced that they made some changes to Google Search Console’s AMP reports which aims to distinctly distinguish between critical issues and non-critical issues. This is done to help users and webmasters understand the issues that would prevent their pages from being served with AMP-related issues on search as well as the non-critical issues that can simply be fixed.
Back in the early 2010s, technology started to radically change for the better. SEO was becoming more and more complex and Google was releasing changes left and right. One such change back then was Google’s “In the news” which was implemented in lieu of the original news vertical results. “In the news” changed many things but its greatest advantage over its older sibling was that it relied on a wider set of sources from all over the internet which increased its results as well as tapping into other credible websites that produced quality, share-worthy content.
In 2016, Google changed things up again by launching “Top Stories”, a modernized, better-performing card-style design that presents featured stories better.
Smartphones are now quickly becoming the primary means of browsing the internet for many people. They’re convenient and they’re portable so it’s no surprise that a lot more people are accessing the internet through their mobile phones on their downtime. However, in an era forgotten (or never experienced, for that matter), mobile browsing was never really good. Back in the days, browsing the internet was primarily done with a PC and secondarily used on feature-phones – and spoiler alert, it wasn’t that good.
