Prior to opening G & G Cycles of Roswell, Guinther co-owned another motorcycle repair shop in Woodstock with a friend.

View and Ask Launches New Type of Buy & Sale Site!

[Kennesaw, Georgia] – Zachary Jensen, CEO and Founder of View and Ask launched ViewandAsk.com, an online marketplace where you, the buyer, can view and ask questions about the item for sale. You can also list your own items, such as an old watch, a sports collection, or even a car, and then add pictures or video of it.   “I was sick and tired of being burned online seller after seller” said Jensen. “I always seemed to be giving the seller the benefit of the doubt, and after wasting so much time and money, I set out to find a solution to the online buying problem.”

 

View and Ask incorporates live two-way video conferencing so that you can see for yourself how the item looks or works, which is useful in cases such as if you are making a sale that requires you to drive a bit to meet. You can search for items by keyword, the state you reside in, or a specific category. Privacy was a concern for each step of the development process, noting that each user has control over what information they allow others to see.

 

“Along the way, I have added a few extra features like the Blooper Zone,” chuckled Jensen. “My goal for this idea is to bring the trust back to online buying one sell at a time.” Jensen hopes to add additional features and functionality as they grow, through the help of MediaLinkers Web Design, who was contracted for the branding, web design, and development of the website. Charlie Jensen, Zach’s father, and part of his team was thankful to MediaLinkers for their “vision, experience, and guidance leading to the successful launch of viewandask.com”.

 

In honor of their launch, View and Ask is offering FREE listings for all items, so list away! However it is not mentioned for how long, so make your way over to ViewandAsk.com now before this deal is expired.

The SERPs Changes Google Made in the Year 2015

Google has implemented a lot of changes this year to the mobile search result format through its ‘mobilegeddeon’ update.  All these updates have caused chaos to the retailers.

 

There are also mobile paid placements which have a strong impact on the organic search performance for the retailers, mainly those which had established brands. These changes suggest that Google is working on a major mobile transition.

 

This blog covers the details of showing you where Google is and what it has to do:

 

What are Rich Answers?

 

The Google SERPs have started to display rich answers between Dec 2014 and July 2015 both for its desktop and mobile searches. The percentage has increased from the 22.6 in Dec to 31.2 in July. What actually is a rich answer?

 

Well, a rich answer is Google’s attempt to answer the searcher’s query in the search results without having them to click through a site.

 

Google Local Pack

 

Google is busy grouping the Maps listings into a single block of results for some time. However, during the summers of 2015, it has reduced the visible result number from 7 to 3. What happened was that the sites ranking in the top 3 maps resulted in the local pack. However, the changes didn’t stop there.

 

Google made a shift in its placement shortly. What happens now is that for the mobile searchers, the local pack is placed right above the organic listings, between the paid search ads and the organic listings to be exact.

 

This switches the position between two elements which have got a profound impact on the organic search sessions, even for the sites that were ranking at #1 in the organic search listings.

 

Google’s Graph of Knowledge

 

Just like the local pack, it has also modified the “Knowledge Box” above the organic search listings on the mobile. This happened in August 2015.

 

This also doesn’t happen to be a universal change as there are a lot of brand which do not generate the knowledge box results. For the retailers, which have got brick and mortar presence along with the substantial online presence, these results generate quite frequently.

 

Google Answers

 

Another shuffle by Google is the increasing presence of the Google “Answers.” Those who are unaware of the Google answers can think of it as the organic search result appearing to directly answer a question posted to Google. The results show the most often on queries starting with “with” and “how,” suggesting that the query itself is a definite answer.

 

Answers also sometimes come from a trusted partner source and sometimes pulled from the third party sites through the featured snippets.  Also, as the Google users continue to adapt to the natural language queries, the boxes are expected to show up with the increase in frequency.

 

Beyond this, Google would adapt to its own self-view, looking at it as the information provider instead of just a traditional search engine. With a poor internet and WiFi connection, the rich answers are not shown, as these are much heavier than the list of 10 text search results.

 

Google is always choosing the best customer experience path for speeding up the fancy results.

 

Adjustments to the Paid Channel

 

The changes are not coming from the rich answers influx. Some of the changes are made to the paid placements:

 

The Paid Search Sitelinks

 

The sitelinks which were paid were a question of concern for a lot of SEOs before 2015 and it has taken even higher level after Google altered the standard paid sitelink format.

 

The default sitelink format before August was to include up to 2 to 3 sitelinks columns.  The new format includes a single column stretching up to the four sitelinks. This reduces the total number of sitelinks, significantly changing the vertical space which the paid ad uses.

 

How it has impacted the Organic Results?

 

You can also say that these changes have had a profound impact on the search performance’s organic listings for a lot of retailers.  Due to the brand-heavy intent to the majority of such queries, the brand searches are hit the hardest.

 

Even when one of all such changes is present, the organic results are changed. In case of the presence of multiple elements such as sitelinks and the knowledge box, the top links in the organic results fall behind below the fold on mobile devices regardless of their small or large displays.

 

In case the results are seen on the small phones such as iPhone 4, the top organic result would be more than a full screen scroll below the page 1 fold.

 

These changes have caused a lot of harm to the top links’ organic CTR and many retailers complained of the sharp drop in the CTR for their core brand terms. This drop is caused without a drop in the organic listings or rank of the actual site.

 

How to Deal with all of this?

 

Answering Through the Paid Listings

 

The main reaction of most of these changes is to counter it through the paid channels. Incase Google replaces the top organic results through the paid search ads, rich answers or PLAs, you can as a brand maintain your top paid listing against the branded queries.

 

How About optimize it for Rich Answers

 

Another way to deal with it is to craft the on page content that is optimized for Google Answers. This would help in the placement of your content as an answer to the common queries on Google search results.

 

You can do so by understanding what type of questions, your audience is searching for and providing the clearest, yet t most precise and simple to understand explanation, addressing their needs.  The better a brand is when it comes to anticipating the search audience’s intent; the easier it would be to craft the content which Google is going to put in its rich answers box.

 

Switching to the Mobile App

 

Another way to deal with the changing trends of Google’s algorithm and the way it displays the SERPs, you need to focus on the updating and optimization of the apps for indexing on both the iOS and Android. Google indexes the Android mobile apps for some time and has announced its ability to index the content of iOS apps.

 

What this means is that the apps can target the specific content within the mobile apps via the organic and the paid searches. Applying the code equates to the certain app content with specific website pages, enabling the mobile devices to “deep link” to the app content.

 

This would help the users in being directed straight into the relevant content in the mobile app instead of the mobile web page in Chrome and Safari. This helps in improving the experience and mobile functionality as far as the chances of conversion are concerned.

 

Long story short, you can say that Google has introduced 5 major components of the various mobile search results layouts. All these changes contribute to the reduction of the organic results, continuing to pushing the organic results below the mobile devices fold.

 

As far as the SEO is concerned, it’s about adapting to the changes made by Google to its SERPs. The mobile technology has altered the ways, people interact with the searches.  Google is also responding to the tailored mobile search layouts, making us question our approach to the way we would be approaching SEO in the future.

What and why is Responsive Web Design Important?

 

The field of web design has progressed to a point where it has become really difficult to keep up with the new resolutions and devices. Creation of a website version for every new device and resolution is going to be impossible, or quite impractical. Rather than suffering from the consequences of losing your visitors from a device, and making another benefit from the others, the best option is to go with the term “responsive web design.”

 

 

What do you understand by responsive web design?

 

 

The term responsive web design suggests that the development and design must respond to the device, its screen size, orientation, and the platform. This practice consists of flexible layouts and grids, intelligent use of CSS media queries and images. This means that in a responsive web design, when a user switches from one device to another, such as from laptop to iPad, the website would automatically switch for accommodating the image size, resolution, and the scripting abilities. In a few other words, the sites need to have the technology for responding to the user’s preferences. This would help in the elimination of a different design and development phase for every new gadget on the market.

 

Due to the benefits that it offers, the trend of responsive web design is on the rise. You can check the slides compiled by Medialinkers web design for reviewing more information on why the responsive web designs have become immensely important for every webmaster.

Knowing Adaptive vs Responsive vs Mobile

 

Even though for a lot of people, the term responsive web design is not new, there are other people who are more acquainted with the mobile and adaptive web design term. This will make you wonder what the difference really is between all these designs.

 

Well, the adaptive and the responsive web designs are related closely and is most of the time transposed as one in the same way. They are also a great means of reacting quickly and in a user-friendly way, according to the screen size. While the responsive web designs are based on different factors and viewport widths, the adaptive sites are built for grouping the preset factors. The two of them are ideal for offering a perfect formula for the functional sites.

Learn How Google’s Mobile Update Will Change the Mobile SERPs

News about the latest Google Update soon to hit the market is circulating everywhere, which is why MediaLinkers has compiled a list of details so that you are in the know.

What is the Algorithm About?

Everyone in the online marketing industry is well aware of Google’s upcoming mobile update (or you should be), and we already have seen that Google has been rolling out some changes to its apps, Google Play Store, and mobile SERPS presentation, along with the more advanced development guidelines impacting the mobile. Even though no one is exactly sure about the details, according to my knowledge of their previous updates, all these changes are going to make a huge impact through Google’s mobile update.

Google is going to launch its own separate mobile crawler to crawl the single page android apps, web apps, and the deep links included in the iOS apps. It would also focus mainly on the JS and CSS composition of the mobile web pages according to the news released recently.

Would the Rankings be impacted if the Site is not Mobile Friendly?

The desktop rankings would not be impacted; as only the mobile rankings would go through the required changes as per the Mobile Update coming on the April 21st. However, the bounce rate can impact the desktop rankings and this makes the mobile SERPs quite important.

How Much Would the Rankings Be Affected?

According to Google, the significance of this update is bigger than the Panda and Penguin updates, which should give you an idea about the destruction it’s going to do to the ranking of mobile unfriendly sites.

However, it would prove as a game changer for the ones that are mobile friendly as they would see a major climb in their mobile SERPs, which would also maximize their search traffic.

What is unclear right now, is what Google would do as far as the maintenance of rankings on tab devices is concerned. Would Google consider the devices as a desktop or would it consider them a mobile device? This will only be known once the mobile update rolls out.

Google’s Goal with the Mobile-Friendly Changes

Well surely there are a lot of goals in Google’s mind, but the main goal is to provide for a better search experience for the users, and to give them what they most desire. In addition to that, they are also trying to make money through the surfacing of apps in the search results, which would help them to drive an increased and improved development of apps for the Google Play. It would also help them to monetize the content of movies, magazines, and music, all of which are currently lead by the industry giants such as Amazon, Hulu and, of course, the iOS App Store including the iTunes.

What the Future Holds?

 

In the future, Google is going to surface the content from Google Play just below the search bar to encourage users to directly download the song or video from them. Google’s Mobile Update is surely going to go a long way in determining not just the traffic of the mobile web pages, but also the mobile apps, songs, and videos etc. on the web, which is why you need to have a responsive designed website through the professional and responsive web design Atlanta services built by MediaLinekrs.
