It’s always an interesting time in the digital marketing and SEO industries when Google rolls out algorithm updates. Professionals get all abuzz on social media and blogs, everyone begins to search for information on the update, and then we check our own metrics and our client metrics. Sometimes Google tells us when they are rolling out these updates, but more often we are kept in the dark. This week, Google has confirmed that they have rolled out two webspam algorithm updates: Pay Day 2.0, and...
When Google+ was launched with much fanfare in 2011, the social media world was abuzz with praise and high expectations. Tech Crunch called it "social, bold, fun and looking good". Early reviews praised the functions and circle features, but had issues with the lack of activity (which was probably just because Google rolled out Google+ only to a select few at first). Most reviewers thought it was a good network, but that it wouldn't be enough to break Facebook's hold on social media; Business...
There's been a bit of panic in Internet marketing circles lately. SEO experts around the world have been blogging about changes they noticed in search ranking patterns, and some of them have been somewhat panicking. Although some worry is normal when something as important as Google changes drastically, the best response is never panic. As professional SEO experts and internet marketers, we can stay ahead of these changes and help our clients adjust to them. This update is being nicknamed "...
Part of the work we do at Stikky Media is monitoring our clients' analytics patterns and SEO results. We check for keywords, organic or referred visits, and many other factors. Lately, though, we've noticed that something has changed in Google rankings and referrals. It seems that the technique of using exact keywords in incoming links is getting penalized by Google. We haven't found any official news on that matter from Google, but we think we've caught on to something here. What exactly does...
A Japanese court has ordered Google to change part of its autocomplete search function after a Tokyo man claimed it ruined his life. The man at the centre of the case hasn’t come out publicly, but his lawyer said a search for the man’s name links him to crimes he didn’t commit, ruining his reputation forever. The man believes Google autocomplete is the reason why he got fired from his job and the reason why he’s failed at getting a new one. Not surprisingly, Google hasn’t done anything about it...
Thinking of forking over $185,000 for one of ICANN’s new generic top-level domains? While it may boost your brand, it won’t boost your SEO. Top-level domains, or TLDs, are the part of the web address to right of the dot, like .com and .ca. There are currently 324 TLDs, 22 of which are generic top-level domains, or gTLDs, which must consist of 3 or more characters. ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is currently accepting applications for the chance to create and...
In 1998, Google reported that it handled 10,000 global searches a day. That number jumped to 4 billion searches a day in 2010, according to a report from comScore. That’s 175 million Google searches per hour, or 2.9 million per minute. Because we spend so much time on Google, it’s easy to get sucked in, bouncing from random topic to random topic. The next thing you know, it’s 3 hours later and you forgot why you went on the computer in the first place. That said, here are some Google search...
The first Google Doodle was born in the summer of 1998, when Larry Page and Sergey Brin took a vacation to the Burning Man Festival. The Doodle they created was simple, with the festival’s iconic stick man loitering behind the ‘O’, but users loved the playful addition to an otherwise simple logo. Shortly after Larry and Sergey posted the first Google Doodle (which was, in essence, an ‘out of office’ reminder), freelance artists began working on others. They occasionally added simple holiday...
Unless you’ve spent the last few days hanging out in a cave somewhere with nothing but a paperback novel and a stick of beef jerky, you’ve probably been exposed to Google’s “Do a Barrel Roll” gimmick. And you probably know that the amusement only lasts for 4 seconds. So sad. To help put a smile back on your face, I’ve compiled a list of Google’s other magical tricks. They should keep you entertained for at least 3 minutes, depending on how much time you spend playing YouTube snake. Enjoy! Askew...
Matt Cutts explains Google's stance on Search Engine Optimization. It's nice to hear Google confirm in terms that the general public can understand that the techniques that we use to gain top rankings for our clients are the same techniques that Google likes to see. While the techniques that we shy away from are considered SPAM. Many people have the misconception that Google doesn't like to have people working on a website in order to improve it's ranking and that rankings should only happen...
