"Google began 2016 by firing a proverbial shot across the bow of the desktop SEO ship. But never fear, the organic search ship is not sunk yet. It may need a few repairs and enhancements, but it’s still a sea-worthy vessel." iProspect's Head of Owned Media, Steve Beatty, gives his perspective on how Google's removal of right rail paid search ads on desktop browsers is impacting millions in the local search community, including advertisers, agencies, experts, and SEOs alike.
Google recently removed ads from the right rail of its search engine results page, sending shockwaves through the Search Engine Marketing and Search Engine Optimization worlds. Now, the only search results users see above the fold for local queries are ads and the local pack (including the map), which makes appearing in that local pack more critical than ever before. Join us for our webinar Tuesday, March 29th, at 1pm ET, with Local SEO Guide's Andrew Shotland and Yext’s Raj Nijjer, to learn why Google made this change, how it impacts desktop and mobile, and how to optimize for this new local search layout.
Google recently removed the right rail, paid search ads on desktops. As is the case for any big Google change, this development will cause a massive ripple effect impacting millions of advertisers, agencies, experts, and SEOs alike. Yext's new whitepaper, "Goodbye Right Rail: What Google Paid Search Changes Mean for Local Marketers," compiles insights from industry experts to break down exactly what this means for the digital marketing community, and what you can do today to optimize for this new format.
By now you’ve noticed that Google has removed ads from its “right rail” on desktop search. Months in the rollout, this change to Google’s Search Engine Results Page (SERP) has significant implications, in that now more than ever, ranking in the local pack is critical for businesses.
