three seo factors
  1. Website Security – You have no doubt seen related articles on the news about breached and hacked websites, getting a secure certificate (SSL) will prove to Google and other search engines that your website should be trusted. Source: Search Engine Land
  2. Website Speed – Google recently announced that website speed is being used a ranking signal, no wonder as for every second your site loads can lose you a potential visitor. Source: Webmaster Blog
  3. Social & Brand Signals – Backlinks can be easily influenced by spam website and poor quality directories. It is harder to trick brand signals and social signs. How many times your brand is mentioned, how many likes and shares your site has is likely to be a strong SEO signal moving forward.

SEO has generated negative press over the past few years with people choosing to either optimise websites compliantly or by trying to game the system.

  • Often you will find websites ranking highly by using private blog networks, stuffing keywords into a website or just by simply buying an exact match domain. (EMD)
  • Websites who have cheated the algorithm to rank will often experience a high amount of fluctuation in rankings and eventually will lose rank when Google or other search engines roll out a major update.
  • Good marketing and focussing on user experience is the best way to optimise websites, factors from social media, valuable back links, quality content and site architecture are the most important aspects of SEO and will prove to be an investment in your company as a whole rather than focussing on short wins.
no private blog networks

With a host of companies starting to show up offering private blog networks as a solution for your SEO I wanted to share with you a few warnings and some light reading as food for thought.

  • Links are controlled by SEO, not you. All work carried out by an SEO should be an investment in your website, not to help build authority in private blog networks.
  • They are against Googles Web Quality Guidelines and will be penalised if located, this will not only penalise the network of blogs and news websites but also all websites gaining links from them.
  • Build your sites relevance online by writing compelling content, structuring your site correctly and having rich and engaging media and you will benefit from SEO in the long term.
  • Stay away from PBNs (Private Blog Networks) and never use a link farm.

(Search engine optimisation)

Search engine optimisation is editing or changing a website to make it more friendly for the likes of Google, Yahoo and Bing this will ultimately achieve better ranks when people search online.

Search engine optimisation can sometimes be referred to as SEO copyrighting, the main reason for this is because most of SEO is related to the text that a search engine has to deal with.

• SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation.

• The main aim of SEO is to optimize a website for search engines such as Google or Yahoo.

 Search engine optimisation is the art of designing and producing a website to rank in the best place in search engine results.

• The results of successful SEO is increasing web traffic to a website from search engines.

google panda update

As you may be aware Google recently rolled out a new Panda update, however within the last 30 days have appear to have reversed the update. It may be that they are making some final tweaks to the algorithm before going live again, watch your analytics or log into your client portal to view your current rankings.

which search engines

Never optimise for a search engine, optimise your website for the user. Search engines are constantly updating the algorithm to make it favour users, recent updates over the years have favoured sites which have the following attributes:

  • Mobile Friendly
  • Unique Content
  • Socially Connected
  • Well Reviewed
  • Regularly Updated
