You may be wondering why you need to optimize your website for search engines, and even further, why you should turn to an experienced company for help. Due to Google’s constant updates and algorithm tweaks, it’s important to know what makes your website “Google-friendly” and how to implement frequent changes to stay afloat.
Early in 2011, Google announced the rollout of changes to their search results ranking algorithm, called the Google Panda Updates. Since, Google has made many updates designed to penalize websites with weak content and low quality backlinks, and reward sites with unique content and high quality backlinks.
