Google – Creative Website Designs http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au Creative for your online success!

Google has been talking about the upcoming of this update for a while and have also launched the Google mobile friendly test tool, which can be accessed here https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly.

 

It is crucial for website owners to have their website mobile-friendly as Google has confirmed that this new update will impact search engine rankings and that business website owners will see a drop in online rankings and traffic if their website is not adapted for mobiles.

 

This new algorithm update from Google is flexible. This means that website possessors that have not made these new changes still have time, and they can recover from lost online traffic.

 

I believe that Google is adjusting their online search for website’s that are not only relevant to the user and their search term, but also providing and caring about the user experience (UX) of the website viewed.

Google Penguin 3.0 Update http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au/google-penguin-3-0-update/ Fri, 06 Feb 2015 01:07:27 +0000 http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au/?p=2990 google penguin 3 update

Google Penguin 3.0 launched Friday, October 17, 2014 so what does this mean for website’s and content marketers? This update will be observing backlinks that are linked to a website in more detail and penalizing websites that are trying or using black hat SEO methods to gain better online rankings.

Google is always continually updating their algorithm to continue the fight against spammy website’s so to provide the end user with the most relevant, precise and accurate website’s based on their search term within search. Google has confirmed and provided estimates that Penguin affects about 3% of search results online.

Penguin Recovery/What to do next?

If you have noticed that your website has dropped in rankings than it’s best to analyse your backlinks and remove the one’s Google is penalizing you against. This can be a long-term process, but is worth doing and can turn your situation around for the better.

Using Google Webmaster Tools is the most easiest and reliable method to find out what is affecting your website. Login and navigate to the “Manual Actions” section under “Search Traffic.” Regarding Manual Actions Google will inform you what activities that should be taken, and why. Duplicated content, slow page load, Flash and use of iframes are all related I believe, even though this for Google Panda problems.

In closing, recovering from Google penalties (Penguin or Panda) is not straight-through or easy process as this takes time and patience. Having good process for content and content editions and not trying to trick Google with unethical SEO tactics will bring you and your website a long way for the better online.

There are a lot of terms and phrases in the world of online marketing and SEO, and Google does certainly come up with interesting and fascinating names for their algorithm updates. What does this mean for website owners? What is the new panda 4.0 update?

History on Google Panda

Google Panda was introduced to combat against websites with low-quality content and website owners that plagiarize and copy other website content as their own to gain online rankings. Google wants to give users the best possible search results based on the search term they have entered.

How to recovery from Google Panda 4.0 Update?

If your website has been hit and affected by the recent Google Panda update then it’s time to seriously change your content strategy and re-write any content that has been plagiarized. One cannot trick the search engines as eventually the Google-bots will catch-up and penalize websites using SEO black-hat methods.

Payday Loans 2.0: This was the roll-out along side the Panda update to combat against spammy keyword queries that have a high volume. This update is not part of the Panda update, but in some ways is related.

History of Google algorithm changes http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au/history-google-algorithm-changes/ http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au/history-google-algorithm-changes/#respond Wed, 19 Mar 2014 05:13:36 +0000 http://www.creativewebsitedesigns.com.au/?p=2472 Google is always updating its algorithm to provide a search user with the most relevant topic on what they are searching online. Most of these changes are minor, but occasionally Google will provide major updates and this can affect online rankings for a website. Below are some of the major updates that have happened.

 Top heavy – 2014

Everyone gets irritated with websites that have little content, look spammy and have a lot of banner ads that distract users, so does Google! This recent update ‘top heavy’ was launched on February 6, 2014.

Google Penguin – 2013

Google Penguin was launched to penalize websites that do not follow the Google guidelines. Web sites that used ‘black-hat’ techniques to manipulate search data were also penalized. It’s imperative to read up on Google guidelines and login to your webmaster tools account and correct any errors that are displayed.

Google Hummingbird – 2013

Google Hummingbird was launched so that when Google indexes a website it can read this in a more human-like manner, hence online search rankings were affected.

Google Panda – 2013

Google Panda was aimed at “low-quality sites”. 12% of websites online were affected with this rollout. Web sites that were not updated on a regular basis or that had ‘thin content’ were the ones penalized.
