Marketing. It’s one our favorite topics here on Minding Your Business, so we’re continuing our discussion about search marketing -- how it’s evolving to include social media and mobile.
In the past year, we’ve seen Google make major changes to their search formula -- or algorithm -- with the Panda and Penguin updates. Google seems to be driven by the desire to make search more closely reflect how human beings, rather than machines, evaluate and find information. That means it’s becoming more difficult to trick the search giant into ranking your website higher on results pages. Known as black hat, these techniques are instigated by search engine optimization companies trying to game the system.
Google’s increasingly sophisticated search algorithms are good news for marketers. However, that means businesses need to be very smart when it comes to creating websites. Not only for the desktop and laptop, but for all types of mobile devices and embedded technologies.
