Google has also linked its Major Updates blog post, which has even more questions for site owners to ask. These questions are intended to ensure that the sites provide unique, original, and in-depth review content to consumers. Reviews should be well balanced and cover pros and cons, Color Correction Services providing as much detail as possible so users can really learn more about each product to make an informed decision. This includes providing strong visuals and/or videos to support the review, data on how the product or service stacks up against the competition, and more.
