Forgive me if someone has asked this question already (I do try and read all the posts but I do miss some stuff) how many people have noticed a significant improvement in Google SERPs lately?
We launched a revamped version of our website at the beginning of June. Mainly a cosmetic make over due to the 1000's of pages of content and apart for adding new pages of content there isn't a lot I can do to update the current pages. They say what they need to say, and that is never going to really change.
It looked like we were taking a hard hit but I flagged up that historically the website has always lost traffic during the summer school break. Traffic is now recovering but compared to last year we're still losing around 20% with no obvious benefits in other areas pages views etc.
Due to the nature of the business I work for the launch of Google Translate has hit our website really hard, but as if that wasn't enough to deal with our SERPsare now up and down like a tartís knickers!
I've been keeping a log of every little change I make, even changing an image or the wording in an alt tag to see if I can spot any patterns; so far, no banana!
