This month, learn how to improve your SEO &
improve your website!

Think Like Google: Your Brain vs. RankBrain

 

 

Program Description:

Google has an extremely complicated algorithm that relies on machine learning and TONS of data on lightning fast servers. The things Google can do are mind boggling when you really think about it. Google has named part of it’s algorithm “RankBrain” and even the engineers behind it can’t always predict how it will behave. But even with these futuristic super machines organizing Google’s search results, the rules that it follows are actually very intuitive for humans. In this program I’ll show you why Google isn’t that complicated after all, and prove that you ALREADY know how to optimize for those crazy algorithms. We’ll dig into what optimization means, and you’ll walk away with a clear idea of how to make Google love your website!
