What We’ve Learned So Far
Its been a few months since Google launched the in-depth article update. Since then a lot of people have been trying to figure out what makes them tick.
The one thing that we’ve learned so far about in-depth articles is that quality matters.
Bloggers are now trying to manipulate the in-depth article rankings by mimicking these signals (word count, social, backlinks, etc) but what Google is really looking for is authority.
Most in-depth articles are sitting on sites that have a domain authority of 80+, which is one metric that is very hard to mimic.
In other words: you can’t fake quality.
Another thing we’ve learned about in-depth articles is that the SERPs are constantly fluctuating. When in-depth articles first launched, we recorded the data for about 30 results. Months later we checked the same results and there was approximately 60% change across the board.
This means that the algorithm is like other aspects of the search algorithm: it is constantly changing and is based on relevance, quality and authority. No SERP is a static entity, that is for sure.

I’ve found that a lot of YouTube channels in the IM / SEO industry are loaded with promotions, affiliate ads, and misinformation. These channels are no-nonsense and straight to the point.
