Google Rolls-out Mobile-First Indexing – Time to Re-Strategize your Business Web Presence!

Google Rolls-out Mobile-First Indexing – Zainulhaq.com

Google today officially announced shifting towards mobile-first indexing for websites. Well, this has been in the pipeline for quite a time now (as Google itself claimed that it has been experimenting its testing), and today it was finally announced by the search engine giant.

For people unaware of mobile-first indexing, it refers to a change in Google’s algorithm to list websites on the basis of its content. Traditionally, Google crawler used the desktop version of website’s content to index, and rank websites. However, users have reported issues with mobile versions of ranked websites. Now, at a time when the number of mobile searches has surpassed desktop searches, Google has finally transited to the mobile-first indexing, so mobile users will have better results for what every service/product they are looking for. Website owners who are migrating to mobile-first indexing will be notified by Google. Such websites can expect increased Googlebot crawl rate. Moreover, the mobile version of the websites will be listed in search results, as well as in Google Cached pages.

It is important to note that mobile-first indexing doesn’t mean Google now has two separate indexing; one for desktop results, and another one for mobile searches. Rather, there will only be one search-index for both desktop and mobile searches; the only difference is that now websites will be ranked primarily for their mobile compatibility.

With this update, it is imperative for website owners to make mobile compatible sites with more dynamic web design, and fresh content. The mobile-first indexing will help websites that have traditionally maintained a mobile compatible version of their website to rank higher than those who have chosen to ignore mobile compatibility of their sites. Moreover, as per Google, the search engine will prefer non-AMP pages for mobile version over AMP pages.

At this point in time, websites that don’t compete in mobile searches don’t need to panic. According to Google, businesses out of this wave will continue to be represented on its search engines without any disadvantage; even after mobile-first indexing.

Now, this doesn’t mean that websites with incompatible mobile websites, should stay relaxed. Google has increasingly shown its favor towards the mobile version of websites and this is latest in line with its policies to transit from primarily desktop based on mobile based. The search engine giant has been encouraging website owners to make their sites’ content mobile friendly. The sites are ranked based on dynamicity of their content for desktop, as well as mobile sites. We can expect a lot more focus and significance on mobile-friendly content in coming years. Thereby, now is the right time for website owners to transit their way towards mobile compatible websites, in order to continue ranking at top positions in Google.

Summing Up:

–    A broad rolling of mobile-first indexing, at this point in time this won’t make disadvantage to ranking for websites with incompatible or absent mobile presence

–    A heavy endorsement for mobile compatible content for websites looking to increase their ranking in Google

–    Fast loading time can help achieve better ranking for desktop, as well as mobile website searches

–    This isn’t the only variable in Google’s ranking algorithm, and there are various other variables that sum up to bring a website to the top position

It’s Time To Move Towards Online Shopping In Pakistan

E-commerce industry in Pakistan is shaping-up. Well that’s isn’t a mere statement, but has its due stats behind it. Though eCommerce industry in Pakistan lag far behind many other countries like China, India, Europe and America, good news is that it has finally began to grow. Today, 3% of the total population are online shoppers, which though represent a much meager situation but also shows off the potential of country for future.

People Often ask me about the future of eCommerce industry and that how safe it is to invest in eCommerce industry in Pakistan. Well, within my sight as a SEO consultant, I foresee a growing and booming future of eCommerce industry in Pakistan and I have my reasons to state that.

For instance, Rocket internet has been pouring a lot of investment into the eCommerce sector recently and for good effects. Similarly, many university groups are initiating their own eCommerce based websites that’s the focal center for all growing industries. One such example is “Uber for Rickshaw” which was started by local tech savvy boys in Lahore. It is innovation like these that I foresee a promising future for eCommerce industry in Pakistan.

Working as a SEO expert in Pakistan, I have had privilege of being part of many successful eCommerce businesses and for me it is only a matter of time that people will start moving from traditional shopping to online shopping industry. Going for online shopping isn’t just good for the businesses and industry, rather it is also a great ease for shoppers to be able to grab their hands on everything they need from their home. In fact, I would say that it’s due time to go for online shopping in Pakistan.

Here’s why you need to shop online in Pakistan:

  • Firstly, online shopping brings a whole new world of ease and comfort. Our lives are already too busy with work routines to be able to handle shopping pressure. Online shopping presents you an ideal opportunity to get anything you want (from clothing to edible items and from electronics to mechanical parts) right from the comfort of your home or even office. In fact, stats show that number of online shoppers from mobile devices have surpassed traditional online shopping (through laptops or desktops). This simply shows the efficiency and ease that online shopping brings into our daily lives.
  • Since, eCommerce industry is still expanding with new start-ups popping out of everywhere, there’s a healthy competition around in market. This healthy competition means that online shoppers have a chance to compare pricing over different eCommerce sites and get the best deal they found.
  • E-commerce business that links sellers to buyers like OLX, Pakwheels etc. are a great source of getting everything you want without any middleman. This is simply an amazing opportunity for shoppers to directly get in contact with sellers and but any additional costs.
  • E-commerce industry is in fact setting shopping trends in Pakistan (that we so dearly missed for all those years). These include special discount packages and yearly sales (Black Friday). In fact, this year Black Friday records the single largest sales volume in history (showing the acceptance of online shopping among general public).
  • There are all too many pros for online shopping and many more will follow as the industry grows. For now, you can definitely enjoy a premium shopping experience and avail all great discount packages through online shopping.

Latest Google Search Trends in 2017

 “Change brings opportunity”, this is one motivational line that we all have heard many times. So, if change really is the opportunity to gain on, then I wonder why so many SEO experts panics when there’s a change in SEO?

Undoubtedly, SEO is one of the fastest evolving field where we see new techniques and algorithms being incorporated every now and then. If you haven’t followed the changing trends of SEO in past few years, you will be totally surprised to see a totally new face of SEO that have shaped the digital marketing world, as we see it today. In fact, thousands of web businesses vanished-off completely with each update of Google’s SEO algorithm update. Only last year we have witnessed some great changes that have inundated the SEO algorithms. Some of the more important updates that shook the SEO world last year include AdWords, Penguin 4.0, Possum and Mobile update 2. Nonetheless, there are SEO experts in Pakistan that understand the posing of each update and were able to withstand every change successfully. This year again, we are expecting more and more updates from Google and as an SEO consultant I thought it would be appropriate to list down few expected updates beforehand.

Here’re some of the top expected SEO trends for 2017:

Optimize User Intention

There’s no ending to the influence and relevance of keywords, as users will always user them for their queries in search engines. Now, there is a greater emphasis on keywords’ phrases and businesses need to find out the intent of users in phrases to make strategies.

This is one primary thing that you need to lookout for SEO trends in 2017 and SEO consultants need to focus more and more on the content production and intelligent use of keywords’ phrases, keeping in mind the intention of user. Once you got your intended phrases, discuss them with the client and keep your focus on analytics for the sway.

Cross Channel Marketing

Cross channel marketing refers to utilizing multiple channels for product marketing. The significance of using multiple marketing channels have certainly increased manifold in the past few months. The idea behind cross channel marketing is to increase the visibility and access of bran over various platforms and devices – so as to increase the chance of attracting customers and getting the sale. Keeping in track the efficacy of cross channel marketing, I would recommend SEO consultants to keep a check into this domain as its influence is only going to rise in 2017.

Mobile Marketing

If there is one thing that have revolutionized the SEO in past years, it is mobile technology. Mobile searches have surpassed traditional computer based searches and that have impacted the SEO techniques greatly. Today over 50% of traffic is generated through mobile devices and as an SEO expert I will highly recommend to watch out this one avenue closely for SEO trends in 2017. Interestingly, Google has also reflected its will to index web pages with respect to mobile first approach (something that’s going to trend greatly in 2017). Keeping the pace in view, I am personally betting Mobile Optimization becoming a compulsion for SEO in 2017.

Voice Search Algorithms

Voice Searching has been one of the top trending phenomenon over Google. This is one avenue that’s not only swift but also futuristic. Technicians and experts have been working to remove error rate frequency for Voice Searches, which is evident from the fact that error rate for voice searches has come down from 25% to nearly 8%.

Voice Search Algorithms are only going to get enhanced in 2017. Again being an SEO expert, I would highly recommend all SEO consultants to think about text-based searches and chalk-out strategies for Voice Search.

 

Artificial Intelligence

Lastly, I am betting on Artificial Intelligence as a SEO trend we are going to experience in 2017. Google has been investing lot of investment and energy over the Artificial Intelligence and perhaps it’s time to see some fanatic updates in it. If we are going to see implementation of AI in SEO, SEO experts will have to devise strategies to incorporate some radical changes to their optimization techniques.

Concluding:

Well, the first thing that we can easily conclude is that SEO isn’t going to die – anywhere in near future. Rather we would be better-of saying that there’re going to be some radical updates and shifts from traditional SEO strategies in coming years. I would highly recommend SEO consultants to keep an eye on the coming updates and start devising strategies to counter the negative impacts of these updates in 2017.
