Don’t get trigger happy with tagging

It’s time to talk about an interesting SEO and content issue I’m seeing more and more. Companies are obviously latching on to the need to have a blog and populate it – prolifically. Setting aside whether this is a good idea at all, let’s look at the impact this is having. In my experience, blogs are often run by people whose remit is to go forth and write stuff, which they certainly do with great gusto, and crucially they often tag things with equal abandon. They put no thought towards what this is doing to their site structure – and why would they?

What Google's latest algorithm update means for marketers

Last year Google started providing site owners with reports on its assessment of mobile usability, primarily looking at three overall factors: how well the site fits into a smaller screen size; whether the font size adjusts correctly for readers on mobile devices, and how well-spaced buttons and links are for pressing with fingers and thumbs. Google was able to start reporting on this because its crawlers (the software with which it discovers and catalogs content on the web) had become advanced enough to accurately replicate what a user’s experience of your site would be. The changes being rolled out now by Google simply takes these factors and makes them part of the algorithm by which pages and content are scored and ranked.

Top-level domains could become an important factor in ranking and online brand visibility

Today, the new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), the thousands of new domain extensions such as “.photography”, “.london” etc., that will be flooding into the market over the next few months, took a step forward and entered a new phase where they are open to applications from anyone. In Greenlight's view gTLDs open up the possibility of the TLD becoming an important ranking factor in the future, particularly for the truly “generic” gTLDs (i.e. not brand gTLDs).

Google’s Hummingbird - no big deal, for now

Google has announced news of what has been a silent shift to a new search algorithm, Hummingbird, the the biggest overhaul to its search engine since “Caffeine” in 2009, affecting 90% of searches. However, whilst Hummingbird will have clear implications for SEO, it is its Panda and Penguin updates – not Hummingbird, that will be the major cause of ranking fluctuations for the foreseeable future.

Penguin & Panda who? - Is Google still really easy to game?

I've resisted writing anything about "Penguin 2.0", the latest iteration of Google's flagship anti-spam algorithm that rolled out on May 22nd. Amidst the sea of SEO's telling everyone "it happened" and/or parroting out the usual information about what Penguin is and how you can avoid it/escape from it, I've struggled to see much point. Fortunately Google came to my rescue with a real peach of a SERP showcasing an example of Penguin, Panda, and Google in general really not working at all, providing me the perfect pretext to talk about it. I conducted an advanced forensic SEO investigation to uncover what you're about to see.

It has been a few months since Interflora’s recovery from the landmark Google penalty caused almost certainly by a large number of paid advertorials and potentially by a number of other link building techniques.
