All website developers and online marketing consultants should stay up to date and informed of chances within the industry and new techniques introduced. They also need to be aware of any changes that Google makes to its ranking algorithm in order to stay on top of their game and offer the best possible service to their clients.
Too many online marketing consultants stick to techniques that they learn years ago and do not take the time to research whether they still work or have the same effect as they use to. This can waste valuable time and money as they may be doing something that is not all that important. Google’s Algorithm is confidential, but they do release basic information and inform you of any major changes to the way they order websites on the search engines results pages.
If in doubt, always get a second opinion about the information you are being told by you web marketing company to ensure they are carrying out the best practices.
