It’s also a work in progress.
The wait is over.
As a returning visitor to Econsultancy, you’ll notice that things are a little different around here.
So what have we been working on? Here’s a whistle-stop tour of the key drivers for what you can experience on the new site.
Everybody talks about the need to provide quality content on your site if you want to rank well in searches. But how do search engines identify quality content?
Successive Google algorithm updates (culminating in the recent Panda 4.1) aim to refine results so that they match the intent of the search query and deliver the most comprehensive, accessible and well-written answer.
