    I think it is great that Google is being more transparent about their expectations. It helps all of us digital marketers to:


    1. Do our jobs better
    2. Provide the right type of content that Google likes and consumers
    3. Utilize SEO practices that help our customers instead of hurt them

    Thanks for sharing Lissa!

    I thought that was a really interesting change on several levels. We all know that organic rules and citations and reviews play a part. They just have never come out and said it directly til now. But agreed they are being a lot more transparent lately, which is great news!
