19 Years of Google Algorithm Updates That Changed SEO History

This article will cover the facts and stats celebrating 19 years of SEO. It will focus on how Google has dramatically changed Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) over that 19 years of time.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) has always been in the process of endless change and development. When SEO has just begun, it was all about altering back-end code, a shady practice of keyword stuffing and spamming links until your ranking started to be positively well for the keywords you wanted. In short, search engines sucked. A lot.

But in September 1998, the world of online marketing and SEO has appeared to dramatically change overnight when Google was launched and stepped in into the game.

Honestly, Google did a great job of understanding ranking factors that could showcase great content, user intentions behind searches, and how to focus on beating away spammers. That catapulted Google to the number 1 search engine used but ever since then, it has been an unending race to be at the top rank for commercial keywords. It has been extremely difficult as of late.
