SEO and the future world without cookies

Third-party cookie tracking is going away, and the SEO industry is ready and diligently preparing ambivalent and posting memes on Twitter. SEO has been dealing with the lack of cookie tracking since its existence. So does the cookie’s demise actually matter? Well, my friends, I’m here to tell you two things. The good news: this change means something and there’s an opportunity.  The bad news: it’s not going to be easy. It takes some smart chops to get done, plus considerable resources you’re not likely to get sitting over there in the SEO corner of the office (remote, of course).  What’s the situation? Legislation, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), are tightening up how advertisers can use to track users.  I think the claim behind this initiative – that consumers want more control of their data – is partly valid but not tremendous.  Most users don’t care and don’t think about who’s tracking them, excep

Google had a data logging error that impacted the Discover performance report in Google Search Console. This occurred on July 26, 2022 and may result in a drop in the number of clicks and impressions that Google logged. This did not impact your rankings or visibility, it was just a reporting glitch. The issue. Google wrote that on July 26 “due to a logging error, site owners might see a drop in their Discover clicks and impressions during this period. This is only a logging error, it is not a drop in actual views or clicks.” Reporting issue only. Again, this did not impact your visibility in Google Discover, it is just an issue with reporting and data logging. So it may appear like you saw a drop in visibility but in reality, it was just an issue with Google’s reporting engine. Here is a screenshot showing the annotation Google put on the report: Fix coming? There does not appear to be a fix coming to replace the data, it seems like the data is gone and you will just have to

The 4 stages of search all SEOs need to know

“What’s the difference between crawling, rendering, indexing and ranking?” Lily Ray recently shared that she asks this question to prospective employees when hiring for the Amsive Digital SEO team. Google’s Danny Sullivan thinks it’s an excellent one. As foundational as it may seem, it isn’t uncommon for some practitioners to confuse the basic stages of search and conflate the process entirely. In this article, we’ll get a refresher on how search engines work and go over each stage of the process.    Why knowing the difference matters I recently worked as an expert witness on a trademark infringement case where the opposing witness got the stages of search wrong. Two small companies declared they each had the right to use similar brand names. The opposition party’s “expert” erroneously concluded that my client conducted improper or hostile SEO to outrank the plaintiff’s website.  He also made several critical mistakes in describing Google’s processes in his expert report, wher
