Thousands of sites all over the world have been reporting significant traffic and ranking drops over the last few weeks. These sites have all been impacted by the recent Google algorithm update. Google updates its algorithm hundreds of times a year, as well as a few major algorithm changes every year. When Google changes the algorithm, it means that sites will be assessed differently. This impacts ranking positions and traffic, which can have a very harmful impact on small businesses. So what can you do if your site has been impacted? How can you prevent your site being impacted in the future? We will be breaking this all down in our latest article.
How To Tell If Your Site Is Impacted
The quickest and most effective way to determine if your site has been affected by a Google algorithm update is to look for a sharp drop-off in traffic or keyword ranking positions. This type of activity won’t occur randomly. If you have made no substantial changes to your site and have noticed a large drop then you have likely been impacted by an algorithm update. You can head to Google’s search blog to check for any recent algorithm updates to make sure.
What To Do If Your Site is Impacted By An Algorithm Update
Once you have confirmed your site has been affected you need to work out what is going wrong for your site. By consulting Google’s search blog you will be able to find what Google is focusing on and optimise your site to best fit the new requirements or guidelines. You can also get in contact with the SEO experts at WorkDash to help restore your site’s SEO performance.
