Google My Business Restaurant Options

Google My Business Restaurant ListingsWhilst Google is rolling out its quarterly core update we’ve noticed that they’ve also been busy with the GMB interface for restaurants with useful ticks and crosses for available services. Thanks to COVID-19 all main restaurants are marked as unavailable for “dine-in” – but you can see how this will be helpful when lockdown is lifted in the UK. Very pleased to see our client Otto’s is top of the pack for “French Restaurant London” too !

Google Reviews Return April 2020

google my business reviewsGoogle Reviews (for Google My Business listings) in the UK are back.

 

On March 20th, Google shut down all new reviews to stop negative and unfair consequences caused by the extreme circumstances caused by Coronavirus. But the great news is Google has announced reviews are now available.

 

Google My Business has stated that new user reviews, photos, short names, and Q&A will gradually return by country and industry.

 

Google Console URL Submission Not Working

SEO force crawlOne of our favourite tools “force crawling” hasn’t been working for over 2 weeks now.

 

Rather than wait for Google to index new pages or to re-read an updated page we often use the URL submission tool found in Google Console, which allows us to see pages’ content updated in the index within 24-48 hours.

 

As usual the SEO work we’re doing does work once read but waiting up to 2 weeks for this to happen really is “snail’s pace”.

Google BERT 2019 Update – 1 in 10 !

BERT Google Update

BERT improves the handling of “context” in keywords searches. In other words it allows Google to better understand and interpret search queries. Naturally this will affect both rankings and also featured snippets.

 

The BERT will be used on 1 in 10 searches & Google says it is so complex it’s running at the absolute limit of its hardware. Hence the 10% limitation. So what does Google’s BERT update mean for SEO companies and website owners?

Top Social Media Accounts for SEO

Social Media SEO

We usually find real “buyers” come via Google. Social media brings low quality traffic, “Browsers” rather than “Buyers”, but it’s useful for SEO as a great way to increase backlinks.

 

Social media is great for bringing in a high volume of visitors but the quality in terms of engagement is usually really poor. I think it’s mostly because social media is typically used as a way of entertaining yourself, browsing for cute animals, gossip, aspirational life styles, inspirational stories, etc. served up by an algorithm designed to match and or agree with your search history and disposition.

Google Ads Average Position Removed!

PPC Agencies LondonBuilding on their announcement in February, Google have now started to remove the average position metric from Google Ads.

 

To replace this they now recommend using Search absolute top impression rate and Search top impression rate which reflect the actual placement of your ad on the page, rather than the position of your ad compared to your competitors.
