Come April 21, 2015, megalithic search engine Google will divide the HTTP world into the Haves and the Have Nots, into those that are mobile-friendly and those that are not. There is no spectrum of mobile-friendliness. In an effort to woo the 60 percent of its traffic that search by smartphone, tablet and "phablet," Google will either assign a website a gray mobile-friendly label in the SERP description, or it will not. Pages that fail the test will either not be returned or will straggle in at the bottom. The algorithm works by page-by-page, real-time analysis. It does not affect... Read More >

Are Google updates the SEOs friend?

The Truth on PR, Social Media, SEO & Email Marketing

When most of the SEOs I have spoken to think of a Google algorithm update it is about lost positions, angry clients and disavow files. “One minute you have a happy client who is showing up for all their converting terms and suddenly... BOOM”. Typically this will happen on a Friday at 4.30pm just before you are due to go to the pub, then have to spend the following days chatting to a guy called ‘Link Daemon’ who lives in Boston and just happens to know someone on G+ who inturn just happens to be dating the cousin or someone...

First, Yahoo! revamped its logo, then Google, and Bing followed suite. Next, Google announced a new algorithm, called Hummingbird, making a big deal about redesigning its search engine for a better mobile experience. Both Hummingbird and the redesign are mere noise, from a company that struggles to keep relevant as Internet users are moving to smart devices. A company which, by all signals, is hemorrhaging cash - but this, in a future analysis. Hummingbird, which aims to be a "conversational engine" based on "intelligent" natural language search, fails lamentably to deliver on its promise. The mobile UI is still stuck... Read More >
