Trusted team explain why Pandas and Penguins are vitally important to YOUR business

The Trusted team strives to keep up with the innovations in marketing and advertising as they happen.. we 'WALK the WALK and TALK the TALK' . Trusted is super active ( and effective) on our many (SM's) social media platforms, we blog consistently and we have a fantastic new Trusted App.

' New media ' is constantly changing and it is important as a business owner and / or marketing person to take the time to keep yourself informed (and on track) with new developments, so you can see how they may influence and affect your businesses bottom line now and in the future. When we find great information we share it with our partners and friends here on the Trusted Canada blog and in person, after all, that's what being social is all about.

 

Have you Googled your category locally lately? If not you should,  as like many others you may be wondering why your search engine rankings have dipped suddenly? Watch out! You may still be unaware of the latest version of a Google update named “Penguin” & “Panda” Series update!

 

So, each year, Google changes its search algorithms innumerable times. While most of these changes are minor, every few months Google runs out a ‘major’ algorithmic update that affects search results in significant ways...if your rankings have dipped significantly then you need to make some changes to your current website. Whether that be yourself, the ' web expert' in your business or the web designer or outside consultant that you turn to for web help don't delay!     

In short: Old SEO strategies are passé. To stay ahead in the game, you need to be in tune with these ever changing prerequisites. If you thought your website could get away with:

• Links from pages having no content

• Poor quality links from irrelevant sites or links from site JUST crammed with ads

• A static site that isn't updated

• Not having a blog or blogging the same content for multiple submissions or providing poor quality content 

• Absence of Social Media strategy in the overall SEO plan

 Your rankings will suffer!

At Trusted we keep a track of all these unpredictable Google updates for our Trusted partners  and we don't just explain why and how but we  also help them  tackle these changes before they start to hit their rankings and organic website traffic.

Firstly just BEING part of Trusted really helps their SEO!!

Here we share our SEO strategies that are attuned to the latest Google Panda update:

 

• We link ONLY to sites that make logical sense and we steer clear of deceptive, ad-heavy sites.

• We use mostly unique and always top quality, relative content, every single time we blog...and we blog ALOT ( up to 52 times a month)  

• We incorporate Social Media in the best possible way and that generates a lot of quality  traffic

• We focusing on local search and that is what GOOGLE focuses on when it comes to the kind of businesses we partner with.

 

But most importantly we don't try to cheat Google rankings or cut corners- we work hard to provide everything that Google values and considers when doing these updates and in the end that is what will win out - It's ALWAYS better to be good than to be slick ...!    

 

Doesn’t Let the Panda Devour Your Rankings!

Trusted Directories featured in Regina and Region Home builders Association You're Home Magazine along with Emerald Park Homes

The Trusted directories were set up based upon the principals of good business, and the foundation of good business is integrity. Simply put, if you don't care about your customers needs as a business then you will never be Trusted. When Sara the Trusted founder came up with the ' Trusted directories concept ' she wanted to have clear, simple guildlines or ' guarantees' laid out for all to see , and she knew it was important for the Trusted partners to sign contracts to uphold those guarantees (and for the partners to be held to them by Trusted). 

 

It only works if the partners take their responsibilities seriously, and it is important that they tell people they are Trusted and what it means! 

Recently Emerald Park Homes a Trusted Regina home builder   contacted Sara to see if she would be willing to be featured in an article in the Regina and Region Home builders association's popular and well distributed  You're Home Magazine. We were thrilled to be invites and we think the article turned out just great .....and it is clear that Lorena and Gary Sawchyn the wonderful owners of Emerald Park Homes understand the old proverb

Why Saskatchewan Optometrists Can NOT be Trusted ...

Much to our disappointment, as of July 2013 the Saskatchewan College of Optometrists followed the Saskatchewan College of Dentists archaic example, and has disallowed Saskatchewan optometrists from applying and partnering with Trusted. The college has ruled that they believe it infers that ‘ Trusted Optometrists’ are ‘ better ‘ or ‘ more skilled’ than other optometrists in Saskatchewan.

 

We thought this was something worth discussing in an open forum and we appreciate all and any feedback

Please let it be noted that S & E Trusted Online Directories Inc has never said or implied that Trusted optometrists are better than others in their field. Trusted is simply a public service that provides local online directories and resource libraries. Trusted is a unique marketing vehicle for businesses as we have a unique set of pre –defined standards that must be reached before we are willing to partner with a business and promote them. Trusted bases our standards and verification on customer service, and we have never (and never will) claimed that we are medical or industry experts in any of the categories we have Trusted partner in. We very simply state that those who meet the Trusted standards and those that uphold the Trusted Guarantees are businesses we are comfortable listing and promoting. Also it should be noted that unlike all other reviews / testimonials you will find online, Trusted qualifies all testimonials by speaking to the individuals personally.

Advance Eye Care Centre in Regina passed the Trusted process as laid out and have been a wonderful partner,  sharing many helpful and important tips on eye health and care  in the last 12 months that can be found in the Regina resource library. We will miss them as partners , as we know that they truly embody the kind of business we look to partner with and they consistently demonstrate integrity and professionalism in all they do - we are happy to endorse them,  as they are wonderful representatives of the Saskatchewan Optometrist's industry.   

WE ARE KEEPING THEIR EYE CARE TIPS IN OUR REGINA LIBRARY SO THE PUBLIC CAN FIND THIS INFORMATION QUICKLY AND EASILY, 1000's of people have already read them and been helped by them so far.

We are saddened that the College refuses to acknowledge that Trusted benefits the public and having representatives on Trusted to educate the public on the importance of eye health/ care benefits all.

Trusted believes that businesses that demonstrate a commitment to provide EXCELLENCE in care and customer service in ANY industry ( medical or industrial) should be applauded and rewarded ..not censored, stifled and made to conform with the rest.
