Google Search Update (January 11th) + Data

I’ve seen many websites claiming that a Google search update occurred on the 8th or 9th of January, 2014. While I hadn’t seen any major changes on any of the websites that I own, I did see quite a few increases on one website that I own. Whether it is due to a Google search update or some other mitigating factor is anyone’s guess. However, the website that I’ll be showing the data about is a website that I haven’t actually haven’t touched in quite a while.

My website is now listed on the first page of that 1,320 search volume keyword, although it is still below the fold. I’m still quite happy with that result and may my website continue to move up. I’ve also seen a nice increase in organic traffic as a result.

For now, that’s all. It’s a pretty nice way to start the weekend.

I first first started creating websites back in 2005. This led me to creating a free web hosting business in 2007, which still exists today. I ventured into creating types of websites such as blogs and forums using Wordpress, vBulletin, Invision Power Board, Drupal and Joomla. I've since worked on some of the leading brands in the UK finance sector, in the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) field, and now work for MoneySuperMarket, the #1 price comparison website in the UK. Social: Google+ and Twitter.
