Have you been wondering whether consistently adding fresh, SEO-friendly content will really draw more eyes to your company’s website? While the evidence has always been there, the roll out of Google’s latest algorithm update offers a resounding, “Yes!”
The new algorithm, which reportedly affects 35% of searches, focuses more on the “freshness” of content rather than on past updates. And based on an analysis from Searchmetrics, which has accurately projected the effects of past Google algorithm updates, the focus on freshness is working.
Searchmetrics’ list of winners and losers from the most recent changes shows a clear trend. Whether brands, news sites, video portals or even government sites, the “winners” all have one thing in common: they have new, engaging content for their site visitors – always.
The kinds of sites that will come out on top in this algorithm shift vary, but they include several major, recognizable brands, such as Overstock.com and MarthaStewart.com. Celebrity gossip sites, like PerezHilton.com and hollywoodreporter.com, should also see boosts, as should news sites, such as huffingtonpost.com and Salon.com. Unsurprisingly, video juggernaut YouTube.com should also benefit, along with other video sites, like funnyordie.com.
Visit any of these winning sites, diverse as their offerings and purpose are, and you’ll see one thread in common: fresh, lively content that’s updated almost dizzyingly often.
