WebmasterWorld Newsletter

Welcome to the January edition of WebmasterWorld's Monthly e-mail.

Following on from our December newsletter, Google's SERPs seem to have stabilised for a few weeks now. There are reports from WebmasterWorld Members that there is some movement going on in the SERPs, and, it's quite likely that, having settled for a while, we may see some significant action in the next few days. The best place to find out about movement is in our Monthly Google update and SERPs changes thread.

Help us to help you by participating in these threads with details of the shifts you're seeing.

It appears that Google has decided to send out e-mails to webmasters about their sites not being mobile friendly. As we all know, mobile is the fastest growing sector, and both Google and Bing have been encouraging webmasters to get ready, and to update their sites for the mobile market. For some webmasters, mobile isn't paying dividends, especially on the PPC side, and others have been reporting that conversions are lower on mobile, suggesting that people search on mobile, but actually buy from a desktop, or tablet computer. What's your experience on that? Join our threads on the topics.

There's also speculation that with the notifications from Google that it is preparing for a mobile ranking update. Sites are already marked "mobile friendly" on smartphones, so there's no reason why sites that are mobile friendly on smartphones aren't ranked entirely differently. Watch this space.

One of our most popular threads was the thread of threads. It is a summary of all the most important topics of 2014. You may wish to bookmark it. In addition, we've had a number of interesting threads in the last month looking forward. These predictions by WebmasterWorld Members may, or may not come true, but some of the input contains valuable information about link development. Don't miss them!

We're very close to an update to WebmasterWorld, and if you'd like to participate in the discussions about the updates, please follow the threads on the topic. We'd be delighted to hear your feedback, but be quick!

We're Feeling Lucky
