- Google is an AI company. Their ultimate goal is to imitate user experience (how an actual human would suggest you results) on search. Hence, all tactics should be white-hat as Google will ultimately fix the loopholes.
- It’s important to attribute organic traffic to your leads and conversions. This will help you calculate the value of the channel and invest resources accordingly.
- In a situation of an algorithm update, rather than panicking about the lost organic traffic, try to understand if it has actually affected your revenue or not.
