3 Lessons for Creating a More Unified Customer Experience
Navigating a Site Consolidation Migration
Many organizations find their sites in need of heavy-duty clean-up after consolidation. But, unfortunately, they don’t always have time to undergo continual optimization and maintenance.
Working on crucial issues after a site migration and consolidation isn’t glamorous by any means. However, when engaging with any messy optimization project, you need to ensure your expectations align with the likely outcomes.
The fact is, you won’t see the results of your efforts for some time. And that’s OK.
Google and other search engines need time to analyze the site for these changes, and we want them to be thorough. Fortunately, setting up the redirects directs visitors to the correct pages immediately, preventing UX problems until the consolidated pages are indexed and ranked.

4 Elements That Help Create Compelling SEO Content
YouTube to Automatically Link to Places Mentioned in Videos

Named “Places Mentioned,” this feature will be visible on the mobile app for iOS and Android for food and drinks videos where YouTube can detect places.
