Hello @Jijo K,

The best case for a new certificate would be create a Google Alert around it. I personally haven't heard of it but that doesn't mean it doesn't or wont exist. At this time I have heard nothing of it.

Hi @Jijo K,


I concur with Spencer. 


Also, Google Webmasters offer free learning resources regarding SEO, making your site mobile friendly and more. These best practices should replace old fashioned SEO tactics. Much of SEO has long been replaced by Google Best Practices. Since SEO is/was about performing better on Google Search, Google Best Practices is very valuable info.  


Webmaster Central Forum Help Community is also very useful. I would guess that if SEO was expanded by Google, it would be talked about heavily in that community. 


Kind Regards,
