featured snippets and Google update 2020

Latest Google Update & What You Have to Know About Featured Snippets

featured snippets and Google update 2020

As you know, regular Google updates are nothing short of unusual to see for a digital marketer. Last year, one of the biggest changes that affected website rankings across the board was definitely the https update and the SSL certificate requirement for all companies who were conducting business online. In 2020, Google is taking a closer look at Featured Snippets. 

What Are Featured Snippets? 

Featured Snippets are designed to provide a searcher with an answer that is relevant, concise and conveniently visible. Essentially, they provide every user with adequate solutions without having to click for specific results. If your website appears on top of Google searches, it’s called a position zero. Being in the center of searches is highly beneficial for getting organic traffic and thanks to featured snippets, in the past websites were able to appear on the first search page more than once. 

This year, Google is trying to declutter page one search results. In other words, URLs elevated to position zero with a featured snippet will no longer appear anywhere else on page one. This clean-up is known as deduplication. 

What does that mean for users? 

Quicker searches affecting in finding clean, relevant information. For marketers, this may not be the best news as it may limit the chances for higher organic traffic, click-through rates and more exposure.  

What can you do to alleviate the effect of these changes?  

Keep creating relevant, unique and interesting content! Focus on providing useful answers for all queries and don’t forget about voice search optimization!

Directory Listings

How Claiming Directory Listings Can Help Your Company?

Directory Listings

Using online properties to effectively develop a stellar digital reputation is a marathon, not a sprint. Getting your house in order (your website, your social media accounts and online business directory listings) is a good place to start. Having a consistent and diverse reputation management plan will keep your business and brand on topic and on the positive side of your audience.  

However, ending there is not going to help you create the lead generation that will help you to grow your online presence. The key to marketing success is constantly updating, adapting, measuring, analyzing and tweaking your strategy to better optimize your results. 

While SEO is in a constant state of flex, it is something you cannot afford to overlook. There is a lot of factors to consider well before you claim your share of the marketplace. First, let’s discuss directory listings and how they play a big part of getting your business a great online presence. 

Directory Listings

If you want your company to rise in rankings on search engine results pages, take the time to claim your business directories as soon as possible. Think of it as yellow pages in a phone book. You want potential customers to know everything about your business in the most accessible way to get more leads. That’s why online directories are so important for your business.  

Things like your company address, phone number, email address and website link should be consistent and updated regularly so any potential customer or client can find your business right away. Some popular websites to list your company information include Google My Business, Manta, Yellow Pages, Yelp, Facebook, Bing Places and Better Business Bureau. 

Taking the time to claim your local business directory listings comes with many more benefits for your company. Besides helping your customers find you, you are also able to reach more people who are looking for specific services. How’s that for a FREE advertising opportunity? Yes, you read it right FREE, business directories are one of the most cost-effective marketing tools ever.

Google My Business Service Feature

Are You Using Google My Business Service Area Feature?

Google My Business Service Feature

Looking to find more customers for your service-area business? Google is making it easier now for businesses that service a particular area to get discovered by consumers searching for services like theirs online in Google Maps and Search. 

Does your business serve customers within a specific service area? If the answer is yes, you should go ahead and update your Google My Business listing asap. Listing your service area helps let customers know where you’ll go to visit or deliver to them. 

Here’s who should be using the Google My Business Service Area feature: 

  • A business that visits or delivers to customers, but doesn’t serve customers at its business address (e.g. a cleaning service). 
  • A business that serves customers at its business address, but also visits or delivers to customers (e.g. a restaurant that also delivers food). 

How it works? 

You can set your service area based on a specific city, postal code, or other areas that you serve. However, it’s important to note that you can no longer set your service area as a distance (mile radius) around your business. If you previously did so, you won’t be able to edit it now. Instead, you’ll need to specify your service area by city, postal code, or other areas. 

Google My Business service area

 

Keep in mind the following when updating your Google My Business Listing: 

  • If you don’t serve customers at your business address, leave the address field blank and only enter your service area. 
  • If you serve customers at your business address but also have a service area, enter both your address and service area.

Pinterest Advertising

What You Should Know About Pinterest Advertising

Pinterest Advertising

If you own a business, you probably already understand how an established online presence can benefit your brand. Social media is not only a free tool for marketers and business owners that can be utilized to bring more brand awareness, but it can also be a vital element of any advertising efforts. 

Do you want to bring in more leads and get your products or services in front of the right eyes? Consider investing in Pinterest Advertising! Here’s how. 

 

What You Should Know About Pinterest Advertising

 

  1. Pinterest for Business – Before you do anything, make sure to switch your account to a business one so you can access specific features like analytics and the Ads Manager.
  2. Goal setting – What do you want people to do after they see your ad? Choosing your goal should be based on what’s most important to your business for this each campaign.
  3. Targeting – Take time narrowing down your ideal target. You should strive to reach the people on Pinterest who are most likely to show an active interest in your ads. Your targeting options can be determined by certain keywords, interests, demographics or placements. You can also use individual targets or combine multiple approaches.
  4. Budgeting – You can select a lifetime option if you want us to use your budget evenly in a chosen timeline. Pinterest will automatically adjust budgets based on how much there is left to deliver. If you select a daily approach, you will only use a specific amount you want to spend each day.
  5. Pin Success – You should promote Pins that are already doing well to reach even more people. Visit your Analytics board to see what’s performing well. Remember to ONLY promote content you own, and make sure every Pin links to a website.
