Develop your SEO strategy by keeping up to date with all of Google's Algorithms

Google wants its search engine users to receive the most relevant search results and in the fastest time possible. If a particular website fulfills this criterion of satisfying the users' need, then they rank higher and get priority in the search engine results.

If you're new to SEO, you may not know about the algorithms developed through time. In this infographic, you can learn about the updates Google has released over time. It also explains Google's techniques for identifying spammy SEO if you don't know your Panda from your Penguin updates.

With every Algorithm update, Google has tried to push towards giving users a better User Experience. Each of the updates; Panda, Penguin, Hummingbird, Pigeon or MobileGeddon; has been reaching out to a different set of problems to solve it. Google's updates are in sync with changing times, and try to balance out the tips & tricks employed to bypass its algorithms.


Thanks to Simplilearn for sharing this introductory algorithm updates infographic.
