There is a major shift taking place in search. And with this major overhaul, SEO is becoming increasing more confusing and mystifying.
Google has just recently done it’s fourth update to it’s search algorithm. Social media is undoubtedly playing a role now in SEO, as well as influencers. Is there such a thing now as social search?
