Search Marketing: Digital Marketing Updates and News

Google’s June 2024 Spam Update, which took place from June 20 to June 27, targets websites that violate Google’s spam policies, excluding link spam and site reputation abuse, resulting in a decrease in their search visibility. 

Potential Impact on Search Results 

Affected sites must review and comply with Google’s spam policies to recover, which may take several months.

Although the update caused mixed reactions, not all is bad news, as some websites may benefit from the update by facing less competition from spammy results.

Recomendations for Marketing Experts

It is essential to conduct regular website audits to identify and eliminate any content that might be perceived as spam. 

Additionally, improving user experience and increasing site credibility by obtaining keywords using external tools such as Semrush can help improve your content for SEO purposes to achieve better rankings in Google Search results.

2. Reddit in Top Rankings: Google Prioritises Opinions Over Informational Content

Recently, a 39% increase in Reddit traffic was reported.

This platform (web and mobile), which operates as a forum where content is socially curated, demonstrates that Google is increasingly prioritising user-generated content and opinions over traditional expert content in its search results.

This change highlights the importance of leveraging community engagement and user feedback for marketers and brands if they are looking to rank on the first positions in Google with their content.

To adapt, marketers should incorporate user reviews, testimonials, and community-driven insights into their content strategies.

This strategic adjustment will help brands align with Google’s evolving search algorithms, improving their search performance and fostering genuine interactions with their audience.

Recomendations for Marketing Experts

  • Conduct a general search on Reddit for topics related to your brand or industry and participate in relevant discussions.
  • Respond to user questions on Reddit with valuable information that subtly integrates your brand’s products or services.
  • Foster the creation of active and authentic communities where users can share their experiences and opinions about your brand.

Martech Field: Digital Marketing Updates and News

1. Google Analytics 4 Rolls Out New Features

Following our latest marketing updates and news, in June, marking the last month to recover data from Universal Analytics, Google announced a set of upcoming features for Google Analytics 4 (GA4), aimed at significantly improving data collection and analysis capabilities.

In our previous blog on marketing news and updates from October 2022, we already mentioned the importance of preparing for this change, and now Google is delivering on its promises, providing a more advanced and functional tool.

You can now see the number of users eligible for remarketing and ad personalisation in Google Ads; these are called advertising segments. GA4 advertising segments are synonymous with audience segments in the Google Ads Audience Manager. 

These new tools will offer marketers more detailed insights into user behavior, allowing for a deeper understanding of how audiences interact with their content across different platforms.

With improved tracking and reporting functionalities, GA4 will facilitate more effective data-driven decision-making, enabling marketers to optimise their campaigns with greater precision.

The Notion 2.42 update introduces the new Notion Sites feature, allowing users to create websites directly from the platform, simplifying the website building and management process. 

With Notion Sites, users can create landing pages, job directories, and complete help centers. Additionally, you can connect your own domain or use a personalised Notion Site URL.

To improve search engine visibility, Notion Sites allows for the addition of custom metadata and integrates with Google Analytics to track website metrics.

Furthermore, Notion has announced that bar, line, and pie charts will soon be available to visualise any type of progress, available without limits in the Plus, Business, and Enterprise plans.
