For a while now, the Google organic search results have undergone some changes and there are more coming. No longer do we see A-G on page one of the organic search results. Now, only three businesses are listed showing a taste of the Google maps results. It’s called a 3 pack. Below the 3 pack are websites that have earned their place on the first page one of the organic results.
How do I Get Into a 3 Pack?
Make no mistake. No one can guarantee a spot in a 3 pack. It is great effort to even make it to page one. There’s lots of tweaking and rewriting going on behind the scenes that can take up to 12 months to reach the ultimate goal. It will not happen overnight. First page placement and appearing in a 3 pack is a process takes time.
And that’s what proper search engine optimization is, a process that can take, at the very least, 4-6 months. After that it must be maintained, monitored and issues resolved as they arise. Issues will and do arise as sure as the sun rises in the east sets in the west.
More Changes on the Way
Another change taking place as of November 1st concerns mobile sites that use interstitials to hide content and prompt app downloads. These websites will most likely take a heavy penalization hit. You may have been to one of these before. You get there ready to read an article then the content becomes obscured. You are then encouraged to download their app to view the site. It’s a great way to lose a visitor!
Google correctly feels that when you click on a search result you want to see content, not be prompted to download something. It can be a very frustrating experience for the visitor and they will just leave. If your website has any of the above issues, get them fixed as soon as possible.
