In 2014 at Google’s annual I/O conference, they announced that you should switch your site over to HTTPS for the possibility of a minor ranking boost. We believe that this may help slightly, but the bigger question is whether or not the switch is right for you.
In late August 2016, Google announced they will lower the ranking of websites using intrusive pop-ups and interstitials starting on January 10, 2017. We have compiled some helpful information for our clients running our SASS Capture. We want to make sure you understand the details and how to handle this.
If you are a client of IMEG you have probably heard us say that position 1 is typically not the best for conversion when it comes to paid search. A recent study by Adobe Media Optimizer in February 2016 proves this point by showing that the 4th position on the page produces the best results. According to this study, the cost per click dropped, but the click through rate increased following Google’s removal of the right sidebar ads.
