Happy October! 🎃
There’s been a lot of rain around here. All this inside time can be great for reflection, but sometimes we reflect on overly stressful things. Slowing down your breath (especially exhales) can support our parasympathetic nervous system, which helps us stay calm. If you’re looking for something simple, try inhaling for a count of 4 and exhaling for the same amount. Yoga Journal has a great article and exercises to try if you’re looking for more.
Now, onto the digital marketing news!
- If you haven’t seen the news circling LinkedIn, here it is: Google was accidentally leaking Bard AI chats into public search results. #YIKES While AI chatbots are helpful, please stay vigilant with your information.
- How important are links for SEO success? Less today than yesteryear. According to Google’s search analyst Gary Illyes: links aren’t even among the top three most important ranking factors – “it hasn’t been for some time.” This is not news to us here at DBE as we’ve been saying for quite a while that links are just one tactic for leveraging off-website signals to reinforce keyword and content relevance to both the search engines and the searchers themselves.
