Update on Google’s New Algorithms, VPCart Hosting & VPCart 8.00
Here’s an update regarding Google’s new algorithm. As the date of implementation draws near, we are getting more and more information about the changes Google plans to implement.
New Search Algorithm’s Huge Impact
In a recent development, reports over the web quote Google Webmaster Trends Analyst Zineb Ait Bahajji as saying that the upcoming mobile-friendly search algorithm is expected to have a bigger impact than Google’s previous Penguin and Panda updates, respectively. Aside from impacting mobile search results, the new algorithm might also affect desktop search queries as well.
Since mobile phone use is on the upswing, it is expected that Google searches on mobile phones will continue to increase as well. So in order to prepare for Google’s new algorithm, make sure that your online store is mobile-ready.

Google’s New Algorithm on Doorway Pages
In addition to mobile-friendliness, Google also recently announced a new algorithm that will penalize sites using doorway pages. Doorways, as defined in Google’s support page
, "are sites or pages created to rank highly for specific search queries. They are bad for users because they can lead to multiple similar pages in user search results, where each result ends up taking the user to essentially the same destination.” But VPCart merchants need not worry about this since we do not use doorway pages anyway.
Well, that’s all the update we have for you. We will keep you posted about the new algorithms that Google will be implementing as new information is released. Plus, we are sure to update you real soon regarding the special rates and freebies we will be offering with the release of VPCart 8.00.
