Did Googles Pigeon Update Help or Hinder Your Search Engine Rankings?
Googles recent update dubbed Pigeon by Search Engine Land had SEO boffs flapping this week. Many local found businesses suffered as directory listings made significant ground in search engine rankings. In some respects however other local businesses are showing signs of improvement. The key thing - as ever is relevance - but what it is that makes one site more relevant than another is at the moment anyones guess.
Some directory listings have jumped up - temporarily, but are not showing relevant copy - and so we would conclude that Pigeon is a working progress for Google and that it will take a while for the dust to settle. We'll keep you updated!
