Watch Out SEO Specialists, Change is Coming!

Watch Out SEO Specialists, Change is Coming! 

Significant changes are happening in the world of SEO and Marketers around the world are loving it. if you haven’t heard the news IndexNow, a new indexing protocol created by Microsoft and Yandex is radically revolutionizing the way websites are indexed by search engines. 

Up until now, traditional search engines obtain web data by pulling data from our servers. What IndexNow does is it “changes content discovery to push method where a CMS like WordPress tells the search engines when the content has been published or updated.”

Now content publishers don’t need to wait for search engines to crawl on their webpages to discover their content, their content is delivered to search engines the moment it goes live on the webpage.

Benefits of switching to IndexNow:

  • Your updated content being indexed the right way means more chances for valuable and quality content to appear on the first page when your audience searches using your keywords.
  • It will drastically improve the performance on the internet in general by optimally improving your servers performance, since now, your server doesn’t have to serve on updated pages to search engines.
  • Lastly, it reduces energy demands for crawling and indexing and therefore preserves our world.

IndexNow is set to launch in November.

According to Microsoft, “large companies like eBay, LinkedIn, MSN, GitHub and Bizapedia are planning to migrate to IndexNow from the Bing URL submission API.”

We are hopeful that all companies will follow along since it’s clear that this is a beneficial upgrade for all Ecommerce companies, and in general, anybody who is serious about their business.



Furlough’s Winning Client Acquisition Strategy

Furlough's Winning Client Acquisition Strategy

One of the most difficult things for aspiring digital marketers and even professionals is getting clients. You might be highly skilled in your niche, but that doesn’t guarantee that you will convert those cold emails into clients. This can be one of the most anxiety-inducing struggles for any freelancer.

Staying afloat in business starts with a great client acquisition strategy. 

So what exactly should you do to acquire more clients?

The answer: A brand audit. 

A brand audit is an overview carried out by the marketer, of all the different marketing efforts done so far by your target client.

By providing up front value, you are more likely to gain the trust of the business you are targeting.

Last week at Furlough, Ophir lead our first brand audit session, which was packed with valuable information on exactly how implement this strategy.

We talked about:

  • Which brands to focus on.
  • How to research the brands current marketing efforts.
  • The best way to consolidate your findings.
