The changing SEO landscape

The SEO landscape is marked by several trends and changes that businesses cannot afford to overlook. Google’s constantly changing algorithms prioritise user experience and relevance, making it imperative for websites to adapt or risk falling behind in search engine rankings. Google’s December 2022 update, which introduced an additional ‘E’ to create E-E-A-T (Experience, Expertise, Authority, and Trust) led to significant SERP (Search Engine Results Page) shakeups in various verticals, causing many websites to lose significant organic traffic in a very short time.

There are four key things to remember when working on your website’s SEO:

User experience is paramount: Google continues to prioritise user experience, emphasising factors such as site speed, mobile responsiveness, and intuitive navigation. Websites that fail to meet these criteria may experience a decline in search rankings.

Content quality and relevance: High-quality, relevant content is more crucial than ever. Google’s algorithms are becoming increasingly sophisticated in assessing content depth, relevance, AI-driven copy and overall value to users.

Social signals matter: Social media signals play a more significant role in search rankings. Integrating social media into SEO strategies is now a necessity for businesses aiming to strengthen their online presence. Badly delivered, this can be just as harmful and beneficial.

Cyclical SEO strategies: A cyclical SEO strategy, encompassing SEO, social media, and blog articles, has become vital. This holistic approach ensures that all aspects of online visibility are addressed consistently and linked through.
