Google Fred Update and What It Means to You

Between the first and second week of March 2017, web marketers were scrambling to discover the meaning and far-reaching effects of the Google Fred Update. Understanding Google updates usually requires a bit of science—guessing and checking, if you will—because Google tends to refuse to comment on its updates. Let’s face it, its algorithm is what makes Google who they are and no one is going to give away the secret sauce.

With a team that specializes in business-to-business digital marketing, we were watching traffic closely and keeping our ear to the Web, so we could see how our clients would be affected by the update.

Many are talking and blogging about Penguin and Hummingbird and every change to Google’sSEO Audit
algorithm with a sky-is-falling tone.  And it’s true that the changes Google is making are dramatically changing how SEO companies operate.  But they don’t change how marketing agencies operate, nor do they change the results we can show when we focus on content.  That’s what Google has always wanted us to do, anyway.

B-to-B Marketing: 3rd Way to Change Your Approach for 2014

Google makes the rules; the rule is based on relevancy. Search is still the star, and the top of Page 1 has never been more coveted. Every few months, Google tweaks its secret algorithm to make it more complicated for those of us who fight for that real estate. The last change, to minimize multiple listings on the first page from the same company (what they named domain crowding), has reduced rankings and even traffic for many companies. But we’ll all adjust. At the end of the day, Google will ALWAYS introduce new changes to drive relevancy, so only the most relevant search returns are presented. That means meta tag/alt tag tactics are dying away, in favor of content relevancy tactics such as social media, domain authority, page authority, blogging, frequency of page shares, Klout scores, retweets and any element Google can think of to favor relevancy.

 Google continues its “relevancy” campaign with changes to its Paid Search Program.  Just outbidding competitors is no longer the way to get to the top of the page – if your content is seen as quality, AND you use Google site extensions and other advanced programming techniques, you’ll outrank competitors that don’t.  That’s why we do site extensions and other programs for our Google paid programs.  They’ll be even more important going forward.  Hubspot did a nice blog post on this to give you some background.  Click here to read the blog post.
