Another year gone by and the world of online marketing truly looks and feels very different than it did this time last year. When you stop and take a look back at all of the different happenings in search engine marketing in 2013 (which we did when preparing this article) it’s astounding just how many changes there have been throughout the year.
Search Engine Marketing in 2013
On July 22nd 2013 Google rolled out Enhanced Campaigns for all advertisers, throughout the entire year we’ve seen surges in both product listing ad campaigns and mobile ad campaigns, social advertising platforms like Facebook and Twitter continue to evolve and offer new and interesting targeting offers and campaign types, and that’s just a few of the top stories. There are countless other events and happenings that it’s almost hard to believe everything that’s happened in the course of just one year.
Search Engine Optimization in 2013
In addition to all the changes with SEM, 2013 was also a year of huge changes in search engine optimization. Releases of Penguin 2.0, then Hummingbird, and ultimately 100% encrypted search with Not Provided have drastically changed the SEO landscape. The events of 2013 are not only immediately impactful; they will also have a huge impact for the foreseeable future.

And what a year 2013 was for Elite SEM!
