Recency & Frequency: Local SEO tutorial with Red Earth Design, Inc.

Web crawlers have become so sophisticated that on top of structured content, they care just as much about organic content. They measure this by looking at how frequently your content is updated, meaning, how often you go and revise information on your site, upload new blog posts, or interact with commenters or reviewers. Google doesn't want to serve it's users outdated content, just as much as you don't want to receive outdated content when your searching for a product or service. So keep this in mind when seeking to effectively reach your target market while also implementing the structural changes I've shown you in the previous lectures.
