Learnings from February Google Algorithm Update [Podcast]


(Last Updated On: February 13, 2020)

So, even as we speak there’s a Google update going on.

There was one last month around the first week of January. And there was one on Nov 7th.

What’s going on, and what is Google trying to do here?

As webmasters, what can you learn from these updates?

Here is a podcast, where I discuss five such learnings from the recent Google updates.

  1. Nofollow links may not work anymore.
  2. Rich snippets may not get you traffic.
  3. Participating in link schemes are dangerous.
  4. Affiliates sites need to focus on content & proper disclosures.
  5. Widespread guest blogging doesn’t work.

Let me know your thoughts in comments, please.

In my pursuit of happiness, I share everything I've learned, on this blog. From productivity to spirituality and everything in between. I quit my cozy job in the USA to pursue my passion - blogging. Today, I make five times what my US job paid. More than the money, I love the freedom it gives me to make my own choices. I can work from anywhere I like, and do what I want - while making more money than I would have, sitting in a cubicle working for others. Come join me. Start blogging! :)
