Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Google has started testing a new way of showing local search results. The main change is that now an ad is shown first, and below are no longer static organic results but a carousel that is swiped.

In other news, the latest studies have shown that businesses with more reviews, star ratings, and listings on multiple sites will generate a higher revenue (up to 58%), as well as that there is a strong correlation between the number of photos you have on Google My Business and your local search performance. This means the more photos you have, the more website visits, phone calls, and views of Maps you’ll generate.

In the last few months, there were also some indexing problems that may have affected the traffic to your websites, and which Google has further addressed. There was a glitch during one of their index updates, which was eventually fixed, and going forward, Google promised to address any issues more promptly.

Google Ads 

An exciting change was brought to us last month concerning Google Ads. They are now available in the form of a new and more engaging visual format – Gallery Ads. This image-based ad can include up to 8 images, with a unique caption for each.

In addition to that, Google has also been pushing towards automating the bidding process as much as possible, which, according to them, will maximize your conversion value and help optimize your budget.

Facebook Ads 

Facebook has been doing some maintenance and announced a big cleanup of the interest targets. As they emphasize, this shouldn’t affect you very much as most of those targets are outdated and very rarely used, and the cleanup will even make interest selection easier and more manageable.

As of the end of August, your mobile Facebook Ads will also become smaller to match the new mobile Facebook design and improve user experience. Two key changes include a smaller aspect ratio (i.e. smaller image) and fewer lines of primary text – there will only be 3 lines shown before you need to click “See More.”

And finally, Facebook has been testing placing your ads in users’ search results instead of the News Feed, determining their potential benefits for businesses. Hopefully, there will be plenty and we’ll see them in the near future.
