What does this mean to the future of Automotive SEO?
Google announced a major change to the google algorithm today. So what does it mean? This change has effected 11.8% of websites. The goal? To weed out “low quality” websites. “Sites that copy content from other websites or sites that are just not very useful.” I shudder to even quote google’s press release for fear that Wikimotive might be penalized!
I suspect that the algorithmic enhancement came from data collected from the Chrome Blocklist Extension. This is significant to automotive seo initiatives which can have a tendency to use and proliferate similar content among dealers of the same brands.
Wikimotive will be very busy testing the ramifications of this new change. Stay tuned!
