Google is always changing. Over just the past few years, the way search works has changed radically – moving to a more user-based model and mobile-first mindset.
This shift in attitudes has changed how the world’s most famous search engine works down to its very foundation, with the intent of moving away from a system that started with information and aimed to connect it with its audience. Instead, Google has made it its philosophy to start with the user and aim to provide the best search results for them.
SEOBook recently shared an infographic to visualize how Google’s search engine works in 2016. It shows that in SEO and Google Search, you can’t rely on the same methods from 2013 to keep your business growing online today.
You can see the infographic below. If you can’t see the small text, a larger version is available at SEOBook.
