Let’s rewind time by a few years… Google+, back then, was one of the principal Social Media platforms that businesses would use in their Social Media Marketing mix, thanks to G+ posts being immediately indexed by Google, that purportedly influenced SEO rankings. Reality at present is not so supportive of Google+, the platform that is widely considered a failure for Google. Fading traffic and scanty activity on forums prove that there have been very few reasons to use it.
December last year, we saw meta-description space displaying up to 260 characters, in some cases it even went up to 270+ characters. This is because Google went lenient on snippet space, thus offering greater on page optimization options. However, recently it changed its mind and reverted to its pre-December snippet length. Days of witnessing up to 4-5 lines of meta-description on a SERP result are gone. We are back to square one with a 2-3 line, 165 character meta-description days.
After a series of testing and refining its new feature addition in the form of a ‘more results’ button, Google recently confirmed much anticipated more results button on its search results page. Does this mean that Search Engine Optimization will have less importance after this update goes live? only time will tell, but for sure pages ranking on 11th for their respective keyword query are going to be the happiest lot.
Everyone loves Google. The platform has a significant influence in regards to individuals’ personal and professional lives. Google is such a powerhouse, and the popularity it gains has led to the creation of a quality product in Google AdWords. AdWords is an advertising platform. The advertisements that appear on the top or the side of the screen when one is surfing are the AdWords ads. These advertisements belong to companies that pay to Google so that the relative products can gain popularity among the prospective customers. The company releases regular updates with precise features with the intent to meet different customers’ needs.
Google recently has partnered with one of the biggest open-source content management systems (CMS), WordPress. WordPress, with a market share of nearing 59% and an estimated 1/3 of the entire web content published through their platform, is a definite leader in content management.
Are you worried that your business’s online marketing strategies and efforts aren’t producing the results your expected?
Your website may appear on various search engine results but staying on top with high rankings is a different ball game altogether. A popular website with a high search engine ranking is like balancing a log on water. One wrong move, you will fall in and drown. As far as staying on top of search engine results is concerned, there are no guarantees.
