PREPARE YOUR WEBSITE FOR THE LATEST GOOGLE UPDATE

Google's last update that focused on mobile usability of a website has come and gone and is affectionately known as 'mobilgeddon' within the industry. We all learnt our lessons and prepared our clients websites to tackle the huge Google shakeup relating to 'mobilegeddon' However it seems that the search giants , Google, are at it again with another update to improve end user experiences when using a mobile device. This time around they are focusing on ' intrusive pop ups'. What are pop ups and why are they used? Pop up are annoying ads or sign up forms that take over the screen when you are visiting a website. You have to close the pop up down to continue viewing the website. Annoying as they are they are an effective tool to increase brand exposure or capture potential client data. At Quay Websites many of our clients have pop ups installed on their websites and they are really affective. What's Googles plan? Google wants to de rank websites that use annoying and intrusive popups and thus boost a more mobile friendly experience to their users. This process starts in January 2017. It is very rare that Google lets people know what they are about to do, so when they do, we know its going to seriously affect the SEO - search engine optimisation - of websites. In the post on the Official Google Webmaster Central blog, Google Product Manager Doantam Phan provided examples of the types of pop-ups that Google considers to be disruptive to the user experience: “Showing a popup that covers the main content, either immediately after the user navigates to a page from the search results, or while they are looking through the page. Displaying a standalone interstitial (pop up) that the user has to dismiss before accessing the main content. Using a layout where the above-the-fold portion of the page appears similar to a standalone interstitial, but the original content has been inlined underneath the fold.” What do I do?! If you are using pop up's its time to say goodbye if you want to maintain or improve a healthy rank on Google. However this still leaves us with the issue that Pop up's do actually work. So we need to start thinking outside of the box and create new ways that are mobile friendly.  Quay Websites can help you!

IOS 10 - What can I help you with?

Apples IOS 10 is here and is busting with features to make our everyday life easier and more exciting. Since we upgraded our Apple phones at Quay Websites we have been playing around with lots of the new features and seeing what will be of use throughout our busy days at work. We love making our clients lives easier and their days more productive and that's not just oinline and with our SEO services in Gloucester and Cheltenham but also we are here to help you with any technical support you require. So we have put together a list of useful features in IOS 10  that might just get through your daily grind. 1. Siri - Finally Apple has allowed third party app developers to access Siri for extended features within their apps. We should see some great new things coming to our favourite apps very soon. however here are a few things that we use Siri for every day that you may benefit from. Here's one that you may not have though about, Maths, Siri has to be the best calculator, rattle off your sums to it and you will get a quick answer. We use this all the time, we get SIri to work out our VAT and any mathematical question that's floating around our office. Searching the web is really easy with SIri , so save on those fingers and just ask Siri what you are looking for. 2. Parked car - This is super as when visiting clients particularly in Cheltenham I have to park my car down a side street and after the meeting I can be often scratching my head in regards to where I have parked the car. IOS 10 now automatically records when you parked your car and pins it on maps. The best bit is that you don't have to do a thing, its all automatic.  3. Messages - communication in any business is so important so finding new and easy ways to communicate is always on our radar. The new messages app allows you to send drawings, files, music and all sorts. After getting over sending stupid pictures to each other and playing noughts and crosses, we have found that it is a really cool and easy way to stay in touch with the team. 4. Notifications are looking a lot better and are more prominent making sure we don't miss and messages, also voicemail can be converted to text which is great if you listening to voicemail's. Over the coming months we will see how IOS 10 has benefited our day to day business, so watch this space for more information on IOS 10 features.   

Have you seen your google rank change recently?

  It seems Google may have tweaked their search ranking algorithm, your site may be ranking higher or lower or the same depending on if this update has impacted your web pages. Google has not yet confirmed the update but based on a in the search community, it seems like an update is indeed happening.To be clear, it seems like there were two updates in the past twenty-four hours. The large update seems to be around , which kicked off earlier this morning or late last night. The second update was likely around  in Google.Google core search ranking updateAgain, Google has not confirmed that there was an update – we’ve emailed them this morning and we hope they get back to us soon. The search community overall seems to be debating that there was an update but there is a huge number of ‘SEOs’ who are saying they do indeed see ranking changes in their verticals. It also doesn’t seem to be a specific industry but rather across all industries and verticals. If you need help getting back on track be sure to visit our SEO page
