Newsletter: April 2016

A copy of our subscriber newsletter from April 2016.

This month Google has updated their Quality Raters' Guidelines (for those who don't know, that's the document helping Google's search quality raters evaluate how relevant and helpful the search results are).

And of course they are still talking a lot about quality, authority and trust. For more insight, check out our blog (and request the free competitor report while you are there).
