  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "We believe this is a function of a fully revamped technology infrastructure and UI as well as the addition of consumer reviews over the last few weeks. Content, especially expert and user generated content, tends to be favored by GOOGL’s algorithms and usually drives up rankings on the SERP . We believe these Search Engine Optimization (SEO) benefits are in the early stages and should become a key driver of traffic over the next few quarters as additional content is layered in by 2Q18. The benefit of organic traffic is it provides zero cost, high intent traffic to the site. Under the current circumstances, where monetization is low for TRUE, we expect the company to cut back on paid advertising to reduce amount of undermonetized traffic leading to reduced ad spend and therefore improved margins."
