Keeping Up with Google - A September to Remember

It was a September to remember, as it was one of the ‘busiest’ months with
Google updates we’ve had in years!
These updates could have substantially impacted your websites visibility. 

Here’s a short-list of some key changes:

  • Google Shopping Overhaul
  • Reviews in Search (Starmaggedon)
  • 3 Major Core Updates
  • Link Attribution Overhaul
  • Major Results Page Design & Features Testing

Some of these changes are more obvious than others, but all are highly impactful in how most people use the web on a day-to-day basis.

In what ways are you seeing your industry changing: The technology industry not only changes daily, but is the cause of much of the change in other industries. Innovation is king, but it must be innovation with meaningful execution. We are in the search engine optimization business at ASTOUNDZ, getting our clients on the first page of Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Yelp and many more!


SEO, short for "search engine optimization", is a digital marketing strategy that works to increase the overall visibility of a website on popular search engines, like Google and Bing, and works to increase the overall quantity and quality of traffic to a website.
Because major search engines present results through pages, it has become extremely important to capture first page results if your website aims to generate organic traffic. This is because 91.5% of all search engine traffic goes to the first page. And with over 40% of revenue captured organically on the first page, it has become an essential ingredient in digital marketing.
