Google started to roll out the new helpful content update this week.
With this recent update, you might wonder how this might impact you as a Carrot member & if your site’s rankings will be affected. Since the update was just released, it’s still too early to know entirely.
How Googe Defines “Helpful Content”
According to Google, helpful content “aims to better reward content where visitors feel they’ve had a satisfying experience, while content that doesn’t meet a visitor’s expectations won’t perform as well.”
In short, the update…
- Is created for a specific audience.
- Features expertise.
- Is trustworthy and credible.
- Meets the want(s) or need(s) of the searcher.
This update will push down sites full of AI-generated content focused on SEO results and NOT providing helpful, valuable content for humans.
This could mean several things; bad, generic sites with repetitive content and unhelpful answers will be penalized. Conversely, websites with expert, people-first content may be showcased higher in the search results.
