For those of you that aren’t aware, .net magazine “is the world’s best-selling magazine for web designers and developers.” This month’s edition is particularly special to us at the SpeedySEO offices as it features an article written by our very own Glenn Jacobs.
Last month there was an invitation from the magazine for someone to report on the latest update to Google. Being knowledgeable about the subject, Glenn wrote an article which highlights the recent changes that have been made to the search engine giant. Although it has been written with a more technical point of view, it is a good read giving insights on how to increase your websties chances of ranking higher in search engines.
To summarise, the changes that have been made for the end user include making the speed at which it returns results much faster, making results more relevant and the inclusion of real time results from social networking websites such as Twitter. In terms of SEO, a larger weighting has now been placed on the on-site optimisation and the importance of keywords prominence, proximity and density has increased as has the relevance and building of backlinks.
The magazine is out now for you to buy.
