Predictions of SEO and Google algorithm experts for 2023

2022 has been a whirlwind year for the SEO industry and there is no sign of slowing down.

How will this year’s algorithm changes affect your SEO strategy for 2023?

What makes this year, and maybe next year, so busy is that the time between algorithm updates is getting shorter and they’re starting to build on top of each other.

Google will continue to test new features and result types.

What does it mean? More algorithm changes will happen in less time, which equates to higher volatility.

Prediction #5: Everyone Is Going To Forget About Universal Analytics Going Away

Everyone will forget that Universal Analytics will go away on July 1, 2023. And it will become crazy for those who have never installed GA4.

While most forecasting has a lot to do with algorithms, at the end of the day, it’s about the content you create and the experience you provide for your customers, so make sure you’re able to track that effectively in 2023.
