SEO in 2021 – The round up

  • by
Digital Marketing News - 2021

We finished 2021 with Decembers News Roundup, and we now look back throughout the year to a year when Google paid out half a billion dollars in breach fines after upsetting France, Australia and Spain, controversy and law suits were rife around rankings and Ads involvements, multiple Google algorithm updates came and went and changes to Google My Business caused SEOs to take notice. 

It all launches us into 2022 with a fresh perspective and a feeling that although lots have changed, really the philosophy regarding good practice on the web hasn’t changed all that much – Google still very much choosing to reward websites which are built with the end user in mind and are comprehensive in their level and clarity of information.
