Those of you who are following SEO closely might have heard about Google's new freshness algorithm and that they are now showing additional information along the search results like author photos, video thumbnails, social recommendations etc.
We were pleasantly surprised in the last few months by some of the treatments RealBird received from Google. First we noticed that most of the RealBird property websites are now enhanced with a video thumbnail in Google's SERP (search engine result page) and also that since the launch of the new RealBird platform, the number of indexed pages jumped from 300K to well over 1 million
Here are some updates:
1) We observed that the number of indexed RealBird pages on Google is climbing by a few thousands a day. On October 27 it was at 1,080,000, now, 11 days later it is at 1,170,000. That's an additional 90,000 pages in Google's main index in 11 days. Unbelivable.
2) We also noticed that Google is much faster in adding RealBird property websites in their video search results. There are now 22,700 RealBird property websites in the Google's video index. Searching for new pages in the video search - filtered for the last 24 hours - reveals 80 new items. 3,320 video entries are shown when searching for new items added in the last month ! Amazing again.
We are working on some additional improvements for search engine optimizing the RealBird system even further, but I wanted to share these new results first.
Pretty amazing !
