Google’s recent changes around the Medic and Birthday updates are all focused on E-A-T, which stands for Expertise, Authority and Trust. In short, E-A-T are guidelines that help measure and assess businesses’ legitimacy in their field, and grant them visibility accordingly. E-A-T is a total shift in how Google recognises and rewards websites’ authority, so it’s really important when working on your website’s SEO that you understand exactly what E-A-T means for you.
On this week’s episode of the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, Tim chats with Dale Davies, Exposure Ninja’s very own Digital Strategy Manager. Dale’s got all the E-A-T on E-A-T, and we want to make sure you do, too!
