Google updating website
A few months ago, I was looking at a trend for Niche Pursuits, and I was not happy.
The organic search traffic was trending down the last few months of the year and it had me a little worried. I could certainly pump out more great content and start ranking for this new content.
I didn't have to wait weeks or months, it was almost immediate! 2019: Want an update on an article that talks about updating content? However, did my articles continue to perform well in Google after the updates I made?
Or did they only get a small “freshness” boost and then quickly fade back to where they were before?
Some went up just a little, but others increased an enormous amount.
The self-publishing article increased by over 712% in the first 30 days!
First, I had to identify which blog posts to update.
Overall, most of the examples below continued to stay or even increase in terms of traffic even a full year later!
However, a couple of the articles I updated saw an initial boost and then faded.
In order to show the results I quickly achieved, I'm sharing a screenshot from the 30 days prior to updating the content and the 30 days after updating the content. 2019: I've kept the original screenshots for you to see.
But I've also added 2 additional screenshots that show what happened 1 year after the updates were made.
