Each and every week we hear about changes to the Google algorithm. In some instances websites see major adjustments in search rankings and in other instances there are just a few small changes. The Google Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird updates have continued to push for natural links pointing back to a website or domain. Unfortunately, some veterinarian websites have over optimized for a specific keyword phrase such as “Miami, Florida Vet” and they are penalized by Google and other search engines.

One way to not worry about over optimizing for a keyword is to receive natural links. This can be quite difficult for those in the medical industry, especially if they do not have any social media profiles or a presence on some of the social networks.
