What an SEO Company Does vs. What People Think We Do

author image Written by: Content Team           Categories - Digital Marketing

Some probably image that SEO companies, such as SEO TWIST, spend their days hacking into the Matrix, reshaping the Internet and search results with black magic and techno-sorcery. Or maybe they picture our team crowded around a giant whiteboard all day, discussing synergy and deliverables and other words no one really understands. But what our team really does for our clients is two-fold: we create the most user-friendly online experience we can, and we make it visible in search engines. Potential customers want a great online experience. That starts with content that’s well-written and worth reading, on a website that’s easy to navigate, loads quickly, and looks good, whether you’re on your computer or your smart phone. Then, using tools like web analytics, keyword data, and social media integration, we take that experience and make sure it ranks well on searches, tweaking our strategy as we go so that it continues to perform. Because you don’t want a quality website that no one can find. Likewise, if you rank well but your site’s content is poor, you won’t sustain your ranking or convert new customers. You really can’t have one without the other. And that’s what we really do. No hacking, no miracles, no baloney – just hard work, great content, and proven strategies.

Google Crawling Happening Outside the U.S

11/25/2022

Do you live outside of the U.S. and wish that Google would crawl your site’s pages? Well, your wish has just come true, kind of. This is all news to us too but this surprise started with an announcement by a Google representative.

Where Is Google Crawling Then?

Search Engine Roundtable reports that a Google representative named Gary Illyes announced that Googlebot could now crawl outside of the United States. Googlebot is the title used to refer to Google’s web crawler which is used on desktop sites and mobile sites.

Illyes states that the “system to handle this is currently live but may not be used in all cases or it may not be used at all for your site,” Search Engine Roundtable reports. However, after he read reports stating that he had made claims crawling was currently happening outside of the United States, he clarifies his claim.

Especially, since in the past Google has said that crawling outside the United States wouldn’t prove to be as useful as one would think. That can be seen in the video hangout just below.

Gary Illyes says that he was discussing Google’s crawling abilities outside of the Unites States. Specifically, in reference to the IP block that have been assigned to countries which could be used in the future for crawling externally.

Others have spoken on the matter of Googlebot crawling outside of the United States. Webmaster and Google Products Expert Kenichi Suzuki took to Twitter to explain the claim. Here’s what he had to say about the matter.

For now it seems like Googlebot is going to stay crawling in the Unites States and external crawling might be tabled for now. Keep an eye on Twitter feeds and Webmaster world for more word in the future!

What’s New In

The search engine’s Guide To Google Search Ranking System is perfect for any user who wants a run down of all Google’s historical and current systems. Historical systems as in one that are no longer running or involved with other algorithms. Current systems as in system still active and in use.

According to a blog post, the guide is intended to be a one-stop shop for creators to learn about how Google’s ranking systems work and how they can change. The post also explained that Google is transitioning to using systems ‘instead’ of ‘update’ as language to notify users of changes to Google’s Ranking.

So keep an eye out for ranking updates, or should we say ranking systems in the future.

Active and Inactive Ranking Systems

One of the great things about Google’s new ranking system guide is that it lists all the systems that are both active and inactive. Search Engine Roundtable reports some of the active systems include MUM, local news systems, products reviews system, helpful content system, and many more.
