Description: With so many shifts in SEO industry in 2016, do you have any idea where SEO will go this 2016? Read on to stay on track to the latest SEO trends in 2016!
The year 2015 was relatively quiet in the world of SEO. Though internet marketers had experienced consistent updates in the algorithm, frequent changes in snippets and ever-changing metrics to compete with, but this is something SEO professionals have been used to.
However, there has been a lot of talk in the first quarter of this year that was revolving around the ad blocking and leveraging social media. But, this is sure that 2016 will be a very thrilling year for SEO. Based on our own experience in SEO and market growth, Search Engine Genie has brought to you a couple of major shifts in SEO industry that are likely to occur in 2016.
- Diversification Of Search Boxes:
Since brands have gained more insight into the rankings, they are exploring to get visibility on various search boxes other than the Google. It clearly depicts that Google will be facing tough competition as businesses have started asking rankings on the Amazon, YouTube and various other platforms. Clients have started focusing on their visibility on WebMD, Netflix, Wal-Mart and Newegg which has initiated a fierce SEO competition among technology giants.
- The Rise Of Social Search:
As social media is gaining its muscles among the online users, it is leaving a strong impact and a shift in their search behaviors. Probably, this is the reason that the Facebook is working to improve its internal search. The FB is investing heavily in offering user-friendly search functionalities. So, this has set many new engagements in the SEO world. It will also offer a good opportunity to gain visibility in social search platforms to those brands who have failed to gain visibility on Google due to the recent Google algorithm updates.
- The Era of App Indexing Has Begun:
Till now, what you have been doing was limited to web only, but 2016 will be the year of app indexing. Since the brands have experienced an increase in their online traffic with the use of mobile apps, 2016 will be all about mobile SEO focusing on apps. Do you know people are directly using services from the apps without using organic search as they come handy? This is the reason Google is building its plans to show results using app indexing.
In other words, there is no guarantee that your users will find your content in the same traditional way as they used to get before. But, if you invest in building an app for your business, then together with the app indexing, you will be greatly ensured to reach your audience. So, 2016 has brought up a serious shift in SEO engagements with the fresh concept of app indexing.
In 2016, the SEO would be on an amazing journey that would discover new approaches to gaining online visibility. However, the shifts that have been discussed here will soon prove to be true as these have been brought to your knowledge after an in-depth study of SEO market. In this fierce battle of getting rankings, you would need a good ally who has competitive knowledge of the shifting trends in the Internet Market. Invest in the one today and unfold your success this 2016. Give Search Engine a chance to add more stars to your online identity.

To promote your brand on the social media, it is important to stay tuned to the market trends. So, read on which social media trends are going to rule in 2016!
Social media has all set to gain the potential clients for the businesses in the upcoming 2016. With the growing technology reach and increasing audiences, SMM strategies will remain in the limelight for showcasing products and services in a unique way. A research conducted by Mashable in the year 2014, shows that more than 81% of businesses ranging from startup to medium enterprises are making the full use of social media to promote their brand online. About 94% of these companies have invested in the aggressive marketing campaign. As per the forecast, the social media users are expected to reach a huge figure of 2.16 billion by 2016, in comparison to the existing 1.93 billion users in 2015, which is significantly a big leap.
However, there would be some social media marketing approaches that will no longer be effective in the upcoming year. The new social media trends have already replaced the way businesses used to approach their potential markets online. So, before you get befuddle which SMM strategy is going to work, here are some vital social media marketing trends to keep you in the loop.
1. Social Media Will Be Your New Google In 2016!
Though Google will still stay in trends for searching things online but it will be the social media that is going to influence the buyers’ decisions. So, the businesses will need to market themselves beyond the SEO and organic searches. The brands will need to keep their eagle eyes on social media users who look for product reviews on the Facebook, Instagram and others!
Are you aware that more than 88% of consumers are heavily influenced by the reviews? The comments they read online, directly impact their purchasing behaviours! This is what is going to be in trend in the upcoming 2016. Ranking on Google will help but more helpful will be ranking your social media business page having reviews. Stay alert!
2. Buy Buttons Are Set To Rule the Social Media In 2016!
With the addition of Buy Buttons on the Facebook and Pinterest, there has come a revolution in the social media marketing trends. Due to the ease of new “buy” features, it would be easier for the users to purchase a product without leaving the platform. This means a lot to the marketers as well. They can sponsor the AD and whenever a consumer finds it online, he can make a purchase with just a click. In other words, selling has been made easier with the new SMM strategies in 2016. Instagram is also following this trend and more industry social media leaders are expected to focus on this growing trend in the upcoming year.
3. Facebook’s Digital Assistant is ready To Shake the Market in 2016!
In the last August, Facebook has introduced a new social media functionality. It is the Facebook Messenger’s digital assistant which is much alike to the Siri in iPhones. It will help you in performing your requests like ordering your favourite pizza! Although it lacks a little bit in competition with Siri, still it will be a good option for the businesses who want to be listed with the Facebook products as a suggested answer to queries. This new kind of social media trend is expected to catch many eyeballs this 2016.
Social media is expected to grow at a bigger rate in 2016.
Accordingly, social media marketing trends will support the change with some out-of-box but customer-friendly approaches! As the social media giants like Facebook, Instagram have all set up for a big fight, you must stay well prepared with the social media trends mentioned here and 2016 will be victorious for your brand!

Many are reporting around major forums that Google is doing major update to their algorithm. It seems many are noticing significant drop in rankings and some are noticing good boost in search engine traffic. I am personally noticing big changes especially this weekend was one of the slowest days when it comes to search engine traffic.
It was literally dead in many of the sites we monitor. I think it was because of seasonal weekend. We are moving into holiday months and I am sure this will impact search rankings and traffic for major sites. All the sites we maintain are white hat SEO. So there is no way any of them get affected by major search updates. We had 2 updates in the last 2 months. Panda and Penguin. Both rocked many search results but what I am noticing now seem to be unrelated to any of those past updates.
Many webmasters in other forums too are noticing change in traffic. Webmaster world one of the leading forum for SEO is buzzing. DO you notice any major changes.
As you all know we at Search Engine Genie have the most comprehensive set of SEO tools.
We like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have used our tools on a regular basis. We will continue to keep our tools free for many years to come. We hate the policy of tools subscription. Please don’t fall for tool subscription scam. There are enough free tools available online that you can use for your SEO purpose.
Free tools help you limit the queries you send to Google. Automated paid tools send mass amount of queries to Google when can result in penalty for your site. Google has always said they will ban tools that send mass amount of queries to their search engines. For example web position gold a tool that scraps Google was literally banned for a very long time. Nowadays there are subscription based tools that has sprung up. Avoid using them long term because
1. Google knows what are the sites that are sending too many automated queries.
2. Mass automated tools will stop anytime soon. Google knows how to block them.
3. Results vary significantly because most of the time tools set results to 100 instead of 10 the way we do normal search.
I can list out many reasons to not shed out money on tools that are freely available online.
We at search engine genie do periodic checks our tools to make sure most of them work. Yes some tools stop working as the search engines evolve but we do our best to make most of them work.
Keep using our free SEO tools and don’t FALL for paid tools SCAM.
Long awaited Penguin 3.0 Update is livc. We are seeing significant moving across many sites we monitor. Till now what we are seeing is excellent movement for many sites affected. Not seeing any new penalties. Sites that did not do any spam link building for the past 1 year has survived and doing well. We at Search Engine Genie literally stopped link building work and do only overall website improvement.
So far it is good news for us but it takes lot more time before the whole testing process is done. Panda 4.1 took almost a month and still going on. I suspect Penguin update will go on for couple of weeks.
I hope this update brings good news for all our sites. So far so good for all our sites. We wish you all success with your sites.
Again there is no official word from Google but from our testing we are sure Penguin 3.0 is live now in search results and being tested across different data centers.
