Bas and Roy were joined by State of Search blogger Sam Crocker who recently switched jobs, going from Distilled to OMD.
The boys discussed the changing SERPS in Google. Google is more and more trying to push their own results, trying to keep them on the Google pages, not everybody is happy with that. Local is playing a bigger role and more spammy results show up.
The shownotes are below.
