Last Friday, G released its latest “Freshness” update into the wild. From what I understand, the goal of the update was to serve up more recent results in the SERPs.
In fact, G said that it would affect 35% of queries!
As with many things that G announces, to better understand the true impact of anÂ algorithmÂ change, I often head over to SEOMoz to see what they have to say, and once again, they didn’t let me down.
In the video below, you will see the types of keywords that are being impacted by this change, and (thankfully) they don’t appear to be the types of keywords that we target for niche sites; although, depending on your niche selection, you could beÂ affected, so its well worth the few minutes it takes to watch this video.
