  • Search engine news - Google Shake Up!

Following the infamous Google update known as the 'Florida update' at the end of November where many sites with established listings suddenly found themselves dropped, it seems that Google have been re-indexing with interesting results. For example we have seen a general increase in traffic during January from Google to many of the sites we currently host, manage and promote.   

We consider this to be a result partly because we continue to register sites we host and manage on a regular basis and this re-indexing by Google seems to be offering us an additional opportunity. The performance is amplified further by use of PPC (Pay Per Click) and relative Linking.  

Ensure you increase traffic to your website www.sur.co.uk/webpositioning & www.sur.co.uk/ppc
