Google’s been ramping up the algorithm updates for some time now – has your website been affected by one of their cutely-named updates?
If you’ve ever cried foul over one of Google’s pets, you may want to think about the KPIs dictating the direction of your local SEO in Toronto (or national or even international campaigns). One good example of an overrated KPI is Page Rank.
This is especially true if you’re running local campaigns (SEO Toronto, for instance): page rank is too general a metric for your needs. Let’s do a little backstory here for a second.
Page Rank is Google’s specific parameter that measures link equity – how many backlinks you have coming from where. Google measures the quantity and quality of your backlinks and moshes them together in the form of a scale of 1 to 10 called Page Rank. The fact that this score is only based on 10 units should be enough of a clue: it’s too general to use for KPI.
