Google Algorithm Change Detected
Apparently a change in the Google algorithm detected last month affects how pages are ranked. Web Pro News is reporting that time-sensitive articles are given a bump if they’re more recent. See full reporting including a video here.
It remains to be seen whether this change will affect how important it is to keep existing web pages updated and changed. Many people insist that keeping pages current is important, but our experience has been to the contrary; some client sites that haven’t been touched in years still enjoy #1 rankings for competitive keywords.
