7 Things Google Wants You to Avoid on Your Website

Posted by StellaPop on Aug 20, 2019 9:05:35 AM

Google makes the rules and we live to follow them.

Below are 7 things to AVOID doing, so you can stay on Google’s good side and rank high in their search results.

1. Absolutely "no thin" content.

A common practice among site owners trying to manipulate search results is to create thousands of pages targeting a different keyword search term and having very little useful content for its visitor. If a webpage's content consists of a short paragraph of text with a search term used abundantly within the text, it's not very useful to a visitor and is not worthy of a good ranking.

Mobile is Not Having a 'Moment', It's Here to Stay

Posted by StellaPop on Jul 31, 2019 7:56:00 AM

While there are various studies looking to determine exactly how many hours a day the average person spends on their phone, they all draw a similar conclusion – around 3.5 to 4 hours. That's nearly a quarter of time spent awake, not to mention phones are usually the last thing we connect with before falling asleep. 

What does this mean for businesses? 

It means everything must be designed with mobile in mind. There's a very high chance that when your target market sees your website, e-newsletter, or digital advertisement, it will be from their phone or tablet. So from marketing strategies to user experience, to graphics, mobile design needs to be a priority.
