Reshaping the Landscape of Search: Tracking Google’s Algorithm changes

283 visualizações

Publicada em


The fact Google is always making changes to its algorithm is not going to catch you by surprise. Most of its modifications go unnoticed, but sometimes great innovations are introduced that can affect SEO and leave you out of the top positions in search engine results pages (or what are known as SERPs).

This session will talk about how all those changes can be controlled with tools that measure the “volatility” in the SERPs, that is, if there are more or less displacements between the first positions of the SERPs of a keyword.

  23. 23. Google update & traffic changes : May 2017 @fernando1angulo #SearchCamp Some sites are dropping or surging 20-30%, while others saw much more impact. And there were several that dropped heavily in early May, only to surge back on 5/17. Source: Glenn Gabe http://www.gsqi.com/marketing-blog/may- 17-2017-google-algorithm-update/
  24. 24. Common features among update ”losers” @fernando1angulo #SearchCamp Aggressive advertising implementations Thin content pages Low quality content UX issues usually either hindering to interact with a site, disturbing in general or deceptive (e.g. almost empty category pages, out of stock items), also causing internal content duplication Boiler plates, content with misspellings, poor grammar or content not of any value Wrong user perception (e.g. snippet promises something. entirely different), and high bounce rates / low dwell time as the result–and generally weak UX signals
  25. 25. This leads to the obvious… Fix or remove thin/outdated content @fernando1angulo #SearchCamp Improve user experience Ensure there are no technical issues.
  26. 26. And machines are not yet smarter than us @fernando1angulo #SearchCamp Tools can only guide you, the road you pick yourself.
