[PODCAST] Marketing Land Live #30: A conversation with Google’s Gary Illyes (part 1)
In part one of a two-part podcast conversation, we speak with Google's Gary Illyes about the recent Penguin algorithm update, plus voice search and keyword data in Google Search Console and Google Analytics.
After a nearly two-year wait, Google finally rolled out an update to its Penguin algorithm on September 23. In doing so, the company also said that this would be the last Penguin update because it’s now running in real-time as part of Google’s regular core search ranking algorithm — big news for SEOs and webmasters everywhere.
If you’re reading that first paragraph and not really sure what Penguin is and why it matters to you, don’t worry. In our latest Marketing Land Live podcast, we visit with Google’s Gary Illyes to talk about what Penguin is and how this latest change will impact marketers, SEOs specifically, and Google’s search results generally. We also talk about voice search and what Google sees as the value of being the source of its answers when searchers speak questions, and the latest on keyword data in Google Analytics and Google Search Console.
This is part one of a two-part podcast conversation and this week’s episode runs almost 35 minutes long. You can listen below, and be sure to scroll down for this week’s Show Notes, with links to the stories we talked about.
