What Google’s Algorithm Update Means for Marketers (Ep. 70)

by TODD HARTLEY, on Mar 22, 2017 9:50:00 PM


You don’t have to be an SEO expert to know that Google is constantly changing.

No, I’m not just talking about the daily doodles. Google is evolving behind the scenes too.

In order for the search engine to keep up with the vast quantity of content on the internet, they need to find new ways to filter information so users can find what they’re looking for.

Most of the time, these updates are undetectable and occur almost daily.

But, every once in awhile, Google decides to lay down the law and flush out all of those spammy websites with thin content, so users can have a better search experience.

Curious to find out if you’ll be affected by this update? Check out this podcast episode for all the latest news from Google, Facebook, YouTube, and more!
