What Will The Google Changes Mean To You?

Google Changes Coming

Goolge Changes – are you ready?  I have been studying the latest news and blogs about the Google changes coming. It looks like the Google Panda is hard at work once again. What else do you have to do to your websites or blogs to keep up with this fast moving Panda?

Google changes

Last week Google announced these changes via an infamous Tweet of their algorithm changes on Google search:

 

I had been reading about this since March 15 when the Wall St. Journal did an article on the upcoming changes coming to Google and what it might mean for search for both the readers and website owners. Of course I started to check on some of our websites rankings and positions. Nothing had changed yet except we were getting more traffic. I cannot be sure yet if it’s related to the Panda over at Google.

What do these new algorithm Google changes mean?

  • Semantic Search – The process of understanding the actual meaning of words. The search engine is looking to better match search queries with a database containing millions of entities.  Google claims this process may take a full year. Google will blend new semantic-search technology with its current system to better recognize the value of info on websites and figure out which ones to show in search results. They want to provide answers without always giving blue links to other websites thus keeping visitors on Google for a longer time period.
  • Elimination of Link Networks – I see this a very positive thing. Most of them were using “Black Hat” SEO tactics to come up higher in search results.  You can read more on SearchEngineLand on this info.
  • Keep It  Simple – Keep it simple with your website or blog – Use real SEO tactics – no latest craze that tries to offer short cuts. See the Google’s Webmaster Blog for their 5 Common SEO Mistakes.
  • Continue to Keep it Fresh – Keeping your content fresh is a plus! Not only for your readers but for SEO and Google. Continue to update your blog or website – not just to update but with relevant content.
  • Be Careful of Over-Optimization – Do not stuff your content with too many keywords – I have been reading at different places that 3-5% the correct amount of keywords on a page.  Susan at Cirquedumont did a post on over-optimization today – check it out!
