GOOGLE PRIVACY POLICY

At the beginning of the month you may have been aware of the introduction of the Google privacy policy. There was much speculation and critics were warning that this could be the start of something unlawful. However, Google has only made things easier and more relevant for its customers.

The global giants got rid of nearly 60 privacy policies and changed it to one privacy policy that was easy to read and understand. This privacy policy would be followed over a range of products and services. The aim was to allow customers to have a more ˜streamlined experience. The privacy policy is shorter concise and more easy to follow. So why is it being heavily criticised?

There has been much debate about the new privacy policy breaking EU guidelines and in recent days there has been uproar among customers in an attempt to sue Google. So what do these privacy policies consist of and why is there such a controversial debate over it. We have given you a basic understanding of the Google Privacy policy.

First they collect your information, including your browsing history and share this data across its platforms such as blogger. The most controversial aspect to this is they collect customers data, this includes personal data which some find a breach against law.

The aim for this was to get searches more specified to what you would like and relevant to your searches, hence why you would get targeted ads to specific things you may have browsed earlier that day.  This means good business for those advertising and to enhance the users experience by monitoring your habits. Remember they only share it with Google platforms, you have the ability to get more targeted advertisements to your interest saving you time to search. In a nutshell the Google algorithm collects your data and displays useful adverts that may be relevant to you.

The reason could be the navigational structure of their website or the architectural issues with the website that is impacting the conversions of the website.

In order to get the best possible conversions one should keep these basic points in mind-:

1) The meta tags of the website is suitable for the kind of products selling on that website. With this the proper targeted traffic will come from the SERP to the suitable website page where visitor will get the information/ products or services he is looking for.

2) The navigational structure of the website has to be very user-friendly and should be able to enhance the user experience. The user must not get lost on the website.

3) The page on which the decision has to be made by the visitor- (whatever the decision be- to shop, to make bookings, to call, to subscribe for the newsletter, to shoot an enquiry etc.) has to properly optimized- in a way that everything is clear to the customer

4) Web analytics is very important to understand the user’s behavior on the website. All the Ecommerce website must have some kind of web analytics integrated so as to understand the bounce backs and page visits etc.

A website has to be built and optimized in a way so that the best possible conversions can be achieved.

WHY SEO WILL LIVE FOR EVER..

ORGANIC RANKINGS is and will always be very important for the searchers and good organic rankings will always drive excellent traffic to the website.

SEO starts with proper keyword research and analysis where the focus is to choose the correct words which describes the website’s products or services or any kind of information in the best possible way and hence the searcher can get to the most suitable website with convenience.

The second good thing about SEO is that it benefits the user experience on the website as well. A well optimized website for search engines will always have a meaningful content benefitting the user’s experience on the website

The website will be free from technical glitches, broken links and will be quick and easy to navigate. Not only that the website will be using proper web analytics (in order to understand bounce backs and customer’s behavior on the website and thereby eliminating the problems).

Along with the content, videos and images are also optimized and hence the website becomes easy to upload and access required information.

A well optimized website will adhere to proper accessibility standards and will be developed using a proper content management system.

 So it is not only the owner of the website who makes money by optimizing his/her website but there are many advantages from a user point of view as well. A well optimized website enhances the users experience on the website by a large extent and hence I can assure you that SEO will stay and live forever in the World Wide Web.
