On-Site Content Writing Tips For Sematic Search

The introduction and increasing development of Google’s semantic search – otherwise known as the Hummingbird algorithm update – has not so much thrown the SEO rulebook out the window (despite what many online marketers are saying) as made the rules less black-and-white, and more intelligent. In light of this era of enhanced search engine marketing, […]

Google Panda 4.0 Rolls Out

If you’ve been following along with the on-going state of the SEO industry, you’ll know that recent times have been fraught with changes.  On that score at least, things have stayed the same, in that they continue to change, and Google’s latest evolution has been the roll-out of the latest update to the Panda algorithm, […]

Context Is The Real King

The increasing industry focus on semantic search and context based content has created some of the biggest upsets in SEO in years, as well creating a significant surge in social media marketing.

The New Approach To Writing SEO Content

The ultimate goal with the new SEO is to win an audience. Sure, you have to do certain things with your webpage so that search engines will give it a better ranking, but that’s just a tool for achieving the goal, not the goal itself. An effective SEO strategy keeps the audience in mind. We […]

And with Google no longer notifying people about changes, the Google dance looks like it’s back in full force. Industry uncertainty, client expectations; SEO isn’t dead, but it is being battered about. Is it deliberate? Well, in some senses, […]

Google’s Hummingbird Algorithm

At the end of September, Google retroactively announced that they had implemented a major rewrite of their infamous search engine algorithm, that they were naming “Hummingbird” for its speed and precision. According to Google’s Amit Singhal, who discussed the algorithm change with Search Engine Land’s Danny Sullivan, Google actually rolled this out a month ago, […]

Google Blocks Organic Keyword Data

Two years ago, Google began blocking keyword data from organic search queries if users were signed into their Google accounts while searching. They claimed that this was done to protect user privacy, but it produced a storm of criticism, largely because they were still providing keyword data for Google Ads clicks. This cast doubt on […]

SEO Fundamentals That Will Always Work

Google SEO’s shrinking real estate has been a topic of great lament for internet marketers over the last couple of years.
