    11 SEO Events That Made An Impact In 2015

    Ok, I think itís time to dust off and try to get back in here once and a while. Iíve been busy launching my company and was not expecting the work load on top of branding my own company, but all is good. Anyway, Here is a good post by Christopher Ratcliff. He goes over some of the trends and events for 2015.


    11 biggest SEO trends and events of 2015


    Itís been a tumultuous 2015 for search, perhaps more so than any other year.
    With mobile optimisation becoming a Ďdo-or-dieí component of your web presence, a massive shift in focus towards the user and Google letting many cats out of the bag when it comes to the ranking signals it uses, marketers have been faced with some major upheavals this year.
    To help me unpick this tangled web of news-stories and trends are a selection of expert contributors, who will expand further on the biggest events on the year and perhaps shine a light on what may come in 2016
    Above is just a snippet, so head over to read the rest.


    What do you think???
    OR has this ever happened to you???
    OR does anyone here have any other good ideas for this type of issue???
    OR do you think this latest Google change will stick
    OR whatever

    YAY! Justin is back! (I hope!)

    Barely a mention of local. All the local shakeups/changes should have gotten a section.
    Like the 7 pack being reduced to 3. That was kind of a biggie.

    Justin comes back with a bang. I had completely spaced the RankBrain announcement which means I have some more research to do. I agree that local should have made the list but there's lots of great stuff in here.Thanks!

    Linda mentioned earlier - 7 Pack to 3 Pack was huge.

    There was also a lack of attention to the GEO tracking roll-out. The Popular Times view Google threw on the local knowledge graph was very telling of in-store tracking. This was quickly followed by the beta In-Store Visit reporting in Adwords (invite only access). Measuring site-to-store and how the journey from the first ad view, to other touch points, to in-store has been a missing piece in local search.

    Re: 11 SEO Events That Made An Impact In 2015

    hahahah Thanks everyone. I will be officially launching the brand this coming month. I was not expecting the workload right out of the gate. In brief, I'm focusing on website design and builds, SEO, Local SEO, Audits, etc.. I have found a niche working with companies going through complete restructuring and re-branding. I love working with companies head deep in an identity crises. This has sucked me back into branding and design, which is where I started years ago. It's been interesting pulling away from local search for a few months, but I miss the chase. It's amazing how much changes on a regular basis.

    That's an exciting area of marketing and I applaud your courage for treading those waters! While it is a huge heap of work, there doesn't seem to be a ton of experts providing this service and the longevity of the proccess is some of the best job security in this space. Wishing you the best of luck!
