    Google Changes for Bed & Breakfasts in 2013 Google Changes for Bed & Breakfasts in 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • The New Google Is Taking Your Cake (and eating it too) 1 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • This is a full page screenshot slide! Photos are a good way to tell the story… The Carousel 2 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Carousel Local hotel results appear at the top of Google SERPs (search engine result pages) bordered in black. 3 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • The Carousel • Takes focus away from OTAs • Top of page, ABOVE ads • More hotels listed above the fold The Carousel is powered by Google’s “Knowledge Graph”, which is where they keep information about your property. Complete your property’s Google+ Local presence to be added to the knowledge graph and available for inclusion in the Carousel. 4 Carousel gives individual b&bs a better opportunity to gain new direct bookings.

    • This is a full page screenshot slide! Photos are a good way to tell the story… 5 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Get Added • Create a Google+ Local Page for your b&b • Complete it with many photos, correct contact information, and quality, accurate descriptions • Associate your website with your Google+ Local Page using publisher markup 6 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Chilean’s look good in orange t-shirts! Google Hummingbird 7 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Hummingbird • • • • Live since the end of August Went unnoticed Changed 90% of search queries minimally Only websites within the gray-area of Panda were punished Hummingbird makes Google Search more intelligent by interpreting very long, complicated, or overly verbose queries as short, punchy keywords. It applies semantics to the actual search query, and processes that, prior to actually serving the results. Instead of matching results word-for-word with the query, Hummingbird matches results that best match the topical intent of the query. 8 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Hummingbird converts this: “Which bed and breakfasts in Seattle have the best reviews?” 9 To this: “Seattle b&b reviews” Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Why Does This Matter? • Optimizing for specific “long-tail” key-phrases is less useful • Google is now smarter, potentially sending more traffic to topical websites with quality trust signals 10 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Knowledge Graph “Conversational” queries now trigger Knowledge Graph results more often. 11 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • Carousel Conversational queries can now trigger the Carousel more often, instead of explicit queries. 12 Copyright 2013 buuteeq inc. All rights reserved.
    • What to do when creating: • Optimize content around topics and ideas instead of long-tail keywords. • Write with your specific, narrow audience in mind • Emphasize readability over keyword inclusion • Make something you’d be proud to share with friends, family, and coworkers 13 We should stop focusing only on keyword optimization and start thinking about topical optimization.
