  • Weekly SEO recap: Google update galore

    … This week we started with a Google update that rolled out over the weekend. Then there was “some” more news that came out of Google. Ranging from Google Penguin to a Search Console homepage redesign, we’ve got quite a bit to cover, so let’s dive right in! Major update over the weekend I won’t go into much detail on this as I already did…

  • Weekly SEO Recap: Happy new year!

    … First of all, a happy new year to you all! This is the first weekly recap of 2016 and the first weekly recap of the last 3 weeks so we have a few weeks of news to cover. Luckily, we weren’t the only ones taking it slow, so it’s about a normal week’s worth of news. Google “No country redirect” stops working, then comes back For a short while I…

    … be interesting. They’re testing it but they (accidentally I think) published the schema for it and then removed it, but of course, they were saved. It looks doable. If they go about opening this up to everyone we’ll probably add this to our Local SEO plugin. Google on 301 redirects If you create a 301 redirect, you have to really think about doing…

  • Weekly SEO recap: Googlebot: Apples to…

    … Applebot lines in your robots.txt. Makes sense, I think, though I don’t know whether I like it much as a precedent. If every new bot would do this, it would make it impossible to do stuff specifically for Googlebot in your robots.txt file. That’s it, see you next week! …

  • Weekly SEO Recap: AMPing up to SSL all the Penguins

    …) networks. What a surprise. Google Penguin is coming Google Penguin always seems to be “coming”. It’s almost like winter. But now we know that the next Google Penguin update will be a true update, not just a data refresh, and it’ll be real time. And it’s coming. Really. Apparently still in 2015 too, according to Google’s Gary Ilyes. But he’s been wrong before. That’s it, see you next week! …

  • Weekly SEO Recap: Quality!

    … This week we released version 3 of our Yoast SEO plugin. I can honestly say we’re very proud of this release.

  • Weekly SEO recap: mobile friendly & snippets

    … We’re working hard on our upcoming Yoast SEO 3.0 release. Multiple focus keywords is slowly proving itself to me as probably the best thing we’ve ever made. It wasn’t the hottest week in search, which is probably a good thing as we’ve had plenty of those recently, but still there’s some stuff to report, ranging from app interstitials to some news…

    … This week in search we saw the following important events: Google (finally) got a brain; we’re getting search for the web’s history; Google said Penguin will come before the end of the year.

  • Weekly SEO Recap: AJAX crawling and Panda

    … After this week’s launch of our first Basic SEO training, it’s now time to sit back and relax. For about two minutes. The next milestone is our upcoming Yoast SEO release which we’ve determined, because of the sheer amount of new features in it, will be called Yoast SEO 3.0. Luckily, the search engines took it reasonably slow on us this week, so…
