On this week’s episode of the SEO Vault, we had the pleasure of hosting Joey Randazzo, owner of SEO Growth Partners, an SEO agency based in Portland, OR. He shared valuable insights on how AI content can be utilized for SEO. Randazzo discussed the benefits of hiring military spouses.

We also discussed the recent Google Search Ranking Volatility on March 1st and speculated that it might be related to the Product Reviews Update. Additionally, we talked about Microsoft’s AI-powered Bing search now being available on mobile and how it can potentially impact search engine optimization strategies.

Google’s John Mueller also weighed in on the topic of rewriting content with ChatGPT. He advised website owners to create new, unique content instead of rewriting old content to improve SEO. Lastly, Google’s Gary Illyes shared tips on recovering from the Helpful Content Update, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing user experience, creating high-quality content that satisfies user intent, & other SEO news (mentioned below.)
