Google Update

Over the last two weeks there have been many fluctuations in Google search results. Some movers would have found their websites doing better than usual, in terms of ranking, while others would have seen their position drop.

This is due to Google’s latest core algorithm update (August 2018).

Danny Sullivan (Google’s public search liaison) has assured the SEO world that the August update is not punitive but should encourage webmasters to do more of the “good stuff” rather than trying to fix something.

From this conversation snippet and other conversations in the SEO community, we can conclude that the long-standing belief that “content is king” still holds true.

Websites that have significantly more (useful) content appear to be doing much better, while sites that are doing nothing wrong, but have less quality content are pushed from the top spots.

If this proves to be an accurate analysis, then any website owner that has seen a drop in rankings will know what to do.

Generally, the most successful websites will have a large amount of useful content. They will have a fast load time, be mobile friendly and have some high-quality inbound links. There are many other factors that vary according to the type of website, but generally if the site is good for the end user, Google will want the site to be high in the rankings.

One basic principle of SEO that has not changed, (and probably never will) is that Google doesn’t care about website owners. Google cares about their users – the searchers. Google searchers want to see the best sites at the top of the search results and Google wants to deliver.
