Google Says: Keep Your Content Fresh
- Frequent updates. There are also searches for information that changes often, but isn’t really a hot topic or a recurring event. For example, if you’re researching the [best slr cameras], or you’re in the market for a new car and want [subaru impreza reviews], you probably want the most up to date information.
There are plenty of cases where results that are a few years old might still be useful for you. [fast tomato sauce recipe] certainly saved me after a call from my wife reminded me I had volunteered to make dinner! On the other hand, when I search for the [49ers score], a result that is a week old might be too old.
Different searches have different freshness needs. This algorithmic improvement is designed to better understand how to differentiate between these kinds of searches and the level of freshness you need, and make sure you get the most up to the minute answers.
As if you needed more of a reason to keep adding value for your customers or patrons.
Google is now factoring in ‘freshness’ of information into their search results. So if you haven’t updated that web and social information about your widget or service, but your competitor has – be ready to lose eyeballs and referrals.
