Numero Uno Web Solutions Announces Top Ways Google Updates Impact Businesses

Numero Uno Web Solutions, a Toronto-based SEO & SEM company, is releasing its expert opinion on how smaller companies can use Google’s three search engine algorithms—Panda, Penguin, & Hummingbird—to improve their online marketing strategy.

Numero Uno Web Solutions (, a fast-growing global Internet marketing firm that caters to small- and mid-sized business-to-consumer companies, is announcing the top ways that Google’s search algorithm updates positively and negatively impact a brand’s chance at ranking higher in online queries. Numero Uno Web Solutions is also reporting on how smaller companies may need to readjust their online marketing efforts to take advantage of these algorithms.

“Search engine marketing is about getting a brand’s web site ranked as highly as possible on different search engines,” says Sarah Toth, digital solutions manager at Numero Uno Web Solutions. “Google is by far the world’s most popular search engine, capturing roughly 70% of the market. That’s why it’s important for smaller businesses to ensure their online marketing efforts use Google-friendly strategies.”

To succeed online, Toth says, businesses need to rank as high as possible on Google. If a company’s web site isn’t on the first page of a Google search, the odds of it being seen by users is remote. Brands that turn up on the first page of a Google search capture more than 90% of all traffic, while only five percent of users look on the second page.

“Google rankings are based on a proprietary ranking algorithm that both rewards and penalizes web sites,” she adds. “Over the years, Google has streamlined and refined its algorithm; three of the most notable updates have been dubbed Panda, Penguin, and, most recently, Hummingbird. Brands that use Google-friendly online marketing strategies have a much better chance at making their web sites more discoverable than those that do not.”

First released in 2011, Google Panda penalizes sites that use low-quality or duplicate content and contain a number of ads, while at the same time rewarding sites that use original, relevant content that is free of grammatical and spelling errors. Google Penguin was released in 2012 and penalizes sites that use unethical SEO techniques, including keyword stuffing, paid links, and backlinking patterns, and rewarding those web sites that provide genuine value.

“In late September, Google unveiled its Hummingbird algorithm update. Instead of penalizing a web site, Hummingbird works toward improving search results, and rather than relying so much on keywords, it takes things like syntax and word order into consideration,” Toth concludes. “Google rankings are based more on answering the actual search query than just matching keywords, so this will make it easier for smaller businesses to connect with qualified customers.”

According to Toth, small-and medium-sized businesses looking to develop an online marketing strategy need to hire a SEO and SEM company with a proven history of using Google-friendly strategies that make web-sites more discoverable and turn qualified traffic into customers.
