If your website carries a lot of adverts you may find that you will be facing a drop in the Google search results in the coming weeks, in fact, some advert carrying websites have already been hit hard.
Google have updated their search algorithm to target websites that have high levels of adverts and there is a chance that some websites could be filtered out of the search results altogether if Google feels the adverts are detrimental to the visitor experience.
The change in the algorithm comes after some Google users complained about searches showing up websites full of adverts as opposed to quality content.
Google believe that by downgrading websites that carry too many adverts they will allow higher quality websites with a much better standard of content to be placed in front of their users.
The search team at Google are committed to continually enhancing the user experience and they are dedicated to ensuring they provide the most relevant and highest quality content to anyone searching online, they continually update their search algorithm to ensure the search engine delivers the most relevant and highest quality results.
