Our Sussex SEO team expands again

After a very busy first four months of the year and with the recent Google algorithm change now known as “penguin” (which makes linking from more varied domains even more important) we are delighted to have added a new member to our already strong content writing team.

Camilla Barker is a fantastic degree educated writer who is also studing for her PhD at the moment but still finds the time to assist us with helping our article and content writing efforts for all our Sussex and Surrey SEO clients.

High quality content and great article syndication has never been more important for keeping a website ranking well and Artemis boasts one of the very strongest writing teams in the industry.

Google Malware Notifications

How to remove the Google phrase “This site may harm your computer”

Google and their partners work hard to ensure that Internet users do not fall foul to websites that may contain Malware ( software designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software). While this is extremely important for Internet users they do not always get it right as one of our clients found out recently.

Their website has been around since 1999 and through our ongoing Internet marketing they have been at the top of Google for a number of important and well searched keywords. However over the last week Google and their Malware partners decided that there was some malicious code on the site and therefore attached a warning to the Google results stating that the website “may harm your computer”, on top of which if you did click the link to enter the site it actaully came up with another warning resulting in hardly anyone entering via Google. Needless to say that their traffic diminished to next to nothing and their business seriously suffered.

We were called in to review the website and look at the code and we quickly established that there was no malicious code present. Was this a mistake? Unfortunately we will never know but during this time their ‘online’ business and leads were seriously affected.

As their Internet marketing company we went through the necessary protocols and within a few hours we have managed to remove the warnings from Google and get their website and traffic back on track.

Choosing an Internet marketing company to work with your business is not just about improving ranking, increasing conversions and increasing your online footprint (as we do), it is about choosing a company that understands all aspects of working with the major search engines and a company that is prepared to react to unforseen circumstances and resolve issues quickly in order to minimise loss of revenue.

Many thanks for all your help with this one : Much appreciated.

Don’t take chances with your online business make sure you are working with a professional Internet marketing company who is willing to work hard, regardless of the challenges to ensure your online reputation is never tarnished.

Webmaster Tools – Top Pages

More new features for webmaster tools makes it even closer to Google Analytics, or at least a ‘lite’ version of the popular website trafiic and visitor analytical tool.

If you now look at search queries section there is a new tab called Top Pages. Under this tab you can see a list of your top performing pages either by search queries (impressions) or by Clicks and CTR.

Next to the pages links there is a little + symbol and this will open up to show you the main search terms this page appears for along with page impressions, clicks and CTR for the actual search term.

Google to be investigated by EU

And so it begins…

It has been announced that the European Union (EU) will be launching an investigation into the Google search engine as a result of complaints received by other search engines operating within the EU citing that Google has abused its dominant position as the number one search engine .

If the allegations are proved to be true it will be a huge blow to Google and may result in the public no ‘trusting’ the search engine as they have done now for over ten years.

The allegations being investigated by an EU commission are looking into whether Google lowered the rankings of competition services within its results.

The investigation was launched subsequent to complaints by a numner of firms including price comparison site Foundem and legal search engine ejustice.fr.

The investigation is keen to point out that it does not mean that there has actually been any wrong doing by Google and a Google spokesperson said;

Since we started, Google we have worked hard to do the right thing by our users and our industry.

But there’s always going to be room for improvement, and so we’ll be working with the Commission to address any concerns.

With Google being such a large player in terms of how much business firms can do on the Internet it was inevitable that this sort of thing would happen and I am sure it will not be the last.

Google has resonded to some of the arguments launched for bad rankings and being in the industry they totally make sense. Just because you are a large corporate, successful company does not mean you have a right to top positions.

For example, Google said, Foundem “duplicates 79% of its website content from other sites.”

We all know and have known for years that duplicate content is a no, no in websites. And if there are duplicate pages there are ways to ensure only one of them counts in the search engines using canonical tags and such like.

It will be interesting to see the outcome of the investigation but I am sure it will just fizzle out as the arguments put forward appear to be more about sour grapes and bad SEO than anything else.
