Welcome to episode 148 of SEO This Week! This week brings us a few news stories in the world of digital marketing. It also brings us the latest update announcement from Google. This wasn't a total surprise considering all the releases they did in December (during the shopping season no less). So this week we take a look at Google's outreach to Veteran-owned businesses, some cool blogging stats, a data studio use case that I think you'll like and how Medium lost half their visibility in the search results.
