Have you noticed there is no innovation happening in websites in past decade?
The only breakthrough innovations is happening in mobile space like SnapChat, Instagram, Robinhood etc.,
The internet is supposed to be more than a wordpress themes and backlinks. It's frustrating to see Google still considers age old methods to rank websites. It's a never ending cycle of mediocre readable content and keywords. 90% of visitors never get past through first page. We would assume Google is dynamic with search results, instead of relying on irrelevant tactics for ranking.
For example, try this experiment select any keyword with the word "quotes" I bet you will see brainyquote in first page no matter what. Which seems like a mediocre website with full of ads and questionable backlinks. We created a web app which is an innovative, modern and dynamic quote presenter with advanced search functions and more. However as we used React and dynamic ajax methods. As a results Google just sees a blank space instead of content. Server side side rendering seems like an expensive band aid that results in slower website.
Now I understand why next biggest popular product is always in mobile space not in websites, because of Google outdated decades olde page rank system. Now I guess we just have to move on and forget about Google and SEO, work on mobile app spending our time and resources there.
Have anyone else experienced this?
