A reminder on qualifying links and our link spam update
You best tag those links. G has quickly transitioned from a subtle nudge to... 'you better mark up those affiliate and guest post links before we throw a manual penalty your way!' 😅

Crawler Hints: How Cloudflare Is Reducing The Environmental Impact Of Web Searches
This looks very interesting indeed! Cloudflare observed that 53% of 'good bot' traffic is wasted (ie. search bots) and finding a solution to reduce that wastage could save as much as 26 million tonnes of carbon cost per year!
They introduced a solution: Crawler Hints. Crawler Hints proactively tell a search engine when a page has changed, rather than having to wait for the search engine to discover a change has happened. Find out more!

Hi there 👋,
Super excited for this issue! It's jam-packed with tools, case studies and insights that I'm sure you'll find interesting.
My Post of the Week is a case study from Michal Pecánek of Ahrefs who expertly analysed Wise.com's SEO strategy (which I'm a huge fan of). It describes how they've used a custom-built CMS to fit around their SEO needs and scale thousands of landing pages, to how they seamlessly migrated millions of pages. This one is a must read! 🔥
I also want to plug The State of Technical SEO Report. Aira has teamed up with the amazing Women in Tech SEO to provide what I'm sure will be one of the must useful reports on technical SEO out there. If it's anything like Aira's State of Linking Building report, we're all in for a treat!
