Great report Gemma. How do you see the censorship in Turkey effecting SEO practices in the country?
The censorship is for social media sites so it shouldn’t really affect SEO practices. Of course, it does mean you can’t use social channels like Facebook as a way to rank in search results. But as for optimising websites, it shouldn’t have any impact.
It seems like censorship – at least for now – is mainly focused on social channels and content which is critical of the government, religion etc.. so avoiding those topics should mean avoiding any issues with censorship.
