Inside Google SEO Tips From Google

Inside Google SEO Tips From Google Inside Google SEO Tips From GoogleThere’s nothing like getting the inside information about a strategy or series of strategies from the company that dominates a specific field.  In this case it’s getting SEO tips from a collection of tips from Google itself.

The average person might think this look at what Google suggests might have information that is so top secret that no one could possibly understand it but that’s totally wrong.  People looking for SEO often listen to too many armchair know it alls or to unscrupulous marketers who will lie through their teeth or give out information of little or no value.  The bottom line is the best way to SEO your website is to follow some basic and fundamental steps anyone can learn in a day or two.

Remember something, when the web was new and SEs were growing in value, the way sites were ranked has changed.  As marketing gurus realized they could cheat and circumvent the procedures and get websites of no value to the top of the search engine pages.  This practice went on for years with one SEO company battling it out with another SEO company and to beat all that the consumers were getting ripped off from fly by night SEO companies making all kinds of absurd claims.

Google realized this and implemented changes over the past several years to combat this problem and be able to deliver results the surfer can value.  Website owners need to pay attention to these tips as this is the way of the future for SEO.

First of all, make a good website.  Not something with every bell and whistle out there.  You want to get your basic information out but you also want to look attractive and be memorable.  This means a smart and efficient design, well written copy, relevant pictures and links to relevant websites, blogs, and resources.

Once you’ve established yourself as something credible you’ll need to implement the latest of approaches to ensure the search engines not only find you but deem you worthy or inclusion and advancement up the ranks.

Make sure your contact info is on each page as well as your location.  Beef up that location data well so you’ll take advantage of what is referred to as local SEO. Use town, city names, landmarks, historical places.  Try establishing a blog that is updated regularly, once a week at a minimum and make sure it is linked to and from your site on each page.  Again, use all the data relevant to what you do and location and services.

Use a schema markup.  This is a language that is easy to find and use that allows for SE’s to not only find you but categorize you properly.  Nowadays, not having a schema markup is a major inefficiency.

Use XML sitemaps as well as Atom/RSS feeds.  If you have a blog, this will be par for the course.  It really helps as people will bookmark and possibly publish your feeds on their sites.  This is why you should include the proper keywords, keyphrases and hyperlinks in every article and blog post.  Those will turn into links back to your site which are relevant and won’t get penalized by Google.

Get mobile established.  Optimize your site for the mobile industry as it is growing to immeasurable proportions.  Apply all the above to your mobile site design as well and make sure you put links to and from your website and mobile site.

The Game Changing SEO Strategies For 2015 And Beyond

The Game Changing SEO Strategies For 2015 And Beyond 02 The Game Changing SEO Strategies For 2015 And BeyondWith 2015 coming up around the corner, SEM and SEO experts are looking ahead at what strategies to use to make the most of their efforts.

The issue at hand is that the way SEO and SEM work often changes.  Search engines like Google have been ramping up their policing of websites that use old, unethical tactics like keyword stuffing and spammy backlinks.  The old skool ways of doing SEO just don’t work anymore and with Google pushing the envelope regarding their algorithm technologies, the modern day SEM has got to change their game or die on the vine.

Basically, the new game is one where long term results are more preferable.  The days of telling clients that their site will hit the top of Google in a matter of days are long over.  Reason being is because the old ways of doing SEO are now penalized.  This brings us to the real deal regarding long term SEO results.  This is done by several simple factors but the toughest of them all.

Bottom line is that the SE’s want people to enjoy searching and not having to get a populated list of spammy websites when they’re looking for relevant information.  All the keywords and keyphrases in the world aren’t going to work anymore.  Google knows this and now they focus on content, design, and true relevance.  This means that SEO pros are going to have to tell their clients that it’s time to get on the good foot and build sites that are meaningful, relevant, and without unethical presence.

Quality content is the key here.  Not lots of links to other people’s videos and pictures but original content, well written copy and links that are ethical will mean that in the long run, the site will rise in the SE’s and be more stable.  Impatient clients are only going to suffer if they don’t game change.  In addition, trying to get great content cheap is not going to work anymore.  Hiring copywriters from poor countries will only get you poor content and you will lose out in the short and long term.  This isn’t a game of rush in and rush out anymore.  Now you’ve got to work for your SEO results.

Will the new world of SEO change with the times and technology?  They had better and do so fast.  No more laziness and backroom dealings to get clients to pay big money for ineffective results.  Now it’s time to go to work and work hard.  Any SEO or SEM pro who doesn’t engage in a lengthy discussion about the time it will take to get good results is a fool.  It took years to come to this but it was due to happen as the public got tired of spammy SE results and when surfers leave, money is lost.  Google can’t afford to have some new up and coming SE that establishes a sound ethical policy and technology that the surfers enjoy or Google’s reign at the top will fall and fall hard.  That being said, SEO experts had best do some due diligence and prepare for the new way of doing things.

The Value Of Traffic Vs Rankings With Local SEO

web traffic vs local seo ranking The Value Of Traffic Vs Rankings With Local SEOMany people think that getting the top rank on Google is a sure bet to winning revenue and domination of a market.  That’s nowhere near the truth.

What matters more than just ranking high on Google is driving traffic to your website.  Not just everyday traffic but what is referred to as organic traffic, traffic that is generated from people who have an interest in your products and services, you, or the topic involved.  People who are actually interested in you and your business and its services are more likely to convert and become customers.  Think of this as, you have a top ranking on Google but those 10,000 people who’ve clicked the link an arrived at your site converted only 5 people to customers, however, a local SEO link brings the same 10,000 in number but converts to 2,000 people who become customers.

One can easily see where local SEO comes into play regarding organic traffic here.  It’s the difference between success and failure regarding SEO campaigns.  Quality traffic that is targeted and organic is like having money in the bank.

You have to use all the tools provided lie the suite of tools and options that Google gives out for free to check your metrics.  Even looking at how many people have asked for driving directions to your store or how many times they’ve accessed Google Maps regarding your business is enough to give valuable data to your team so that they’ll give you more insight on where your traffic is coming from and why.  Having this data means you can then tweak your websites to make the most of this traffic and not miss out.

Far too many people just half-listen to good advice.  They run with the pack so to speak.  That’s not good SEO sense by any means.  You have to go with what the real experts advise and remember to stick to your own plan but don’t be so strict that you can’t accept good, sound advice.  SEO can change.  It’s never fully set in stone.  Industries change with new strategies and materials and that has to be included correctly.  When companies like Google make new changes or add new features, you had better be on top of them quickly and apply them smartly.

It’s all about monetizing and making the SEO work for you but not with the hype and wasted resources.  It’s still up to you to sell your product or services but using the tools available means your advertising or promo has to be spot on and capture the attention of those organic traffic searchers.

Remember, the quality of the traffic is what’s important here not the quantity.  Today’s business person or marketer wants the best for their money and having someone to fine tune their sites for local SEO to get those customers in your area is paramount.  Don’t underestimate this one iota.

The value is in quality traffic, not quantity.  Remember that.

The World Of Negative SEO Blackmail And Google

Negative SEO and Extortions 300x221 The World Of Negative SEO Blackmail And GoogleIf things aren’t bad enough already in the world and on the web, Google and its clients have to deal with a problematic wave of extortion, aka blackmail from the dark forces of Negative SEO gangsters who are threatening webmasters that they’ll damage their Google results if they don’t pay up money.

Cybercrime is a multi-billion dollar a year industry and law enforcement hasn’t enough manpower nor experts to battle it all. Google had reportedly told webmasters that their ratings could suffer from attacks but now things have taken a turn for the worse.

Google realizes they can’t protect their webmasters and are stumbling around working feverishly to handle the problem. Law enforcement around the world is stymied as to how to combat it as with countries like China, Russia, Nigeria, and even the U.S. Have no way to arrest and prosecute them all.

Crime is running rampant all over the planet and it stands to reason that the web is suffering brutally. Major hacking attacks have compromised billions of accounts and it looks like there’s no stopping them. Some experts claim a reboot of the web is called for but skeptics point out that criminals aren’t the only ones engaged in such activities as we’ve seen in the headlines that governments themselves have engaged in unlawful web surveillance and theft. Shut down and rebooting the web would mean these governments would be crippled regarding espionage. Add to that the cyber criminals are making so much money and paying so much in bribes, shutting them out would mean disaster for the underworld and corporates.

The consensus is that a Congressional route in the U.S., teamed up with international allies could effectively make the web far safer but then countries like China and Russia would protest. The cybercrime economy is so vast that should it shut down it might cause international disaster for honest webmasters as well.

This is the age of computer warfare that had been predicted by security experts decades ago but no one paid attention. These negative SEO blackmail attempts are just one of thousands of scams to rise and sink its fangs into the public.

Right now the only recourse for a victim is to contact their local law enforcement or FBI but that is of little help as their hands are full and resources limited.

In recent months Google has added some firepower to its algorithm lineup with Panda and more. It looked promising but it is going to take a miracle, a real smart whiz kid to come up with something that ends this nightmare once and for all. That just might happen because whomever does come up with a solution will be wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. Somehow some computer whiz sitting in their basement or fooling around on their smartphone will have an epiphany and come up with a solution. It’s not a matter of ‘if’, it’s a matter of ‘when’. When it does you’ll see mountains shake all over the planet and cyber criminals fleeing for their lives.

The Brand New Google Boost to SSL

SSL SEO 300x300 The Brand New Google Boost to SSLRanking on Google is going to be a lifestyle for many, many people all over the world, and when something comes up that has to do with SEO (especially when it’s brand new) there are going to be speculations related to it. SSL certificates are an integral part of most secure websites, and apparently Google has figured out a way to work SSL certificates into the ranking algorithm that Google uses. Web hosting businesses have never been so busy, and a time like this just ensures that they’re going to be rolling in the money for quite some time to come. Google has said themselves that the weight surrounding this ordeal isn’t very big, and that SSL certificates only play a very small role when it comes to ranking websites. It isn’t as large as it could be right now, but Google is probably going to pursue it in future endeavours. They’re trying to get people to make use of HTTPS (as opposed to HTTP), and the use of SSL certificates is only possible through HTTPs functions. Even if it is a small role, there’s still a role in the first place, and SEO service gurus and marketers all over the world are reacting through social media platforms.

People have mixed reviews when it comes to discussing the matter, most of them are just curious as to how something so seemingly insignificant can help you rank higher on Google. There are plenty of things you can do SEO wise to work on your rankings, and there’s so many different things that SSL certificates seem sort of pointless in a sense. There’s nothing wrong with trying to be innovative and creative, technology is a past time that is completely run by geniuses and those who are willing to think outside of the box, but is this implementation of SSL certificates the right thing to do? The community didn’t receive it very well, and when that happens it usually means that Google is going to make even more changes when the next algorithm date comes to fruition.

No matter what your position is on this matter you still have to take it in stride, Google is still a search engine giant and it’s not going to go away anytime soon, so you might as well make lemonade with the Google lemons being gifted to you. Most of the tweets and status updates were snarky and weren’t really forgiving with the incorporation of SSL certificates, most of them were actually related to Google being money hungry. Some said that they were going to end up selling SSL at some point, which actually wouldn’t be that surprising. No matter how you look at it this is a business, and the entire reason you’re in this industry is to make more money, so how hypocritical is it to take shots at a larger than life company that’s trying to monetize? SSL’s are useful for more than just ranking of Google, so there’s always that.

What’s The Story On Google’s Pay Day Loan Algorithm?

640px Payday loan shop window1 135x300 What’s The Story On Google’s Pay Day Loan Algorithm?With much anticipation in their war on spammy websites, Google’s heralded Payday Loan Algorithm hasn’t lived up to what it was cracked up to be.

Website owners, spam watchers, and SEO optimization experts have all been chomping at the bit regarding seeing this software do its job in getting the spam off the search engine and allowing legitimate sites to see their day in the higher rankings.  After the announcement that the software was up and running, aficionados watched intently to see the results.  So far they’re not satisfied even from the responses of Google’s SEO expert Matt Cutts who enlightens the public on everything Google and SEO related issues.

It was on June 12, 2014 that Cutts made the announcement that the software was up and running but so far the satisfaction level just isn’t there for the public.  Lots of speculation is emerging from experts in SEO and those on the sidelines.  The Payday Loan software was touted as a something like a dream come true.  Something the hard working website owner or webmaster could count on to give them a fighting chance against the black hat spammers who often thwart the search engines and dominate the top rankings.  They populate Google with low end quality content written by hack writers from third world countries.  The average and above average website owner and webmaster doesn’t have a chance nowadays.

That being said, it’s going to take serious vigilance to see where this SEO algorithm is going and whether the spammers can compromise it.  It’s like as soon as Google gets ahead these people are right on their tail and they’ve got to start all over again.

The Payday Loan 3.0 algorithm follows the Panda 4 software that Google initiated recently to do somewhat of the same thing.  One might think that with this one two punch that Google would be well down the road to beating back the spammers but so far no flags or fireworks of celebration have been seen.  It may be that due to the sheer volume, perhaps billions and billions of spammy websites are too much for the algorithms to handle in a speedy manner and may well take weeks or months to show results to a satisfactory degree.  If that’s the case then it could be a double edged sword for Google in that by the time the software takes hold and shows results, the spammers and black hatters will have back engineered things and Google will be back where they started.

It’s all about the math here.  With billions of people on the web and millions of spammers and those who would undermine things for greed, it may call upon Google to really pour on the heat and find a way to combat it all.  It may take something drastic that will upend the SEO world but something has to be done before someone else comes up with a search engine that can’t be compromised and Google will go the way of Yahoo.

Google’s Panda 4.0 Changes The Game

panda4 255x300 Google’s Panda 4.0 Changes The GameHere’s the game changer coming as Google has announced that their next version of their search engine will use their Panda 4.0 algorithm.

Google is doing this for one primary reason.  Results that bring more quality sites to the fore and not those spammy, hack sites that SEO marketers have put out by the millions.  Those pages with low quality content and crammed with keywords and keyphrases gum up the search engines and result in poor quality returns on search queries by the public.

This upgrade of their Panda SEO software algorithm is sending shockwaves throughout the internet.  Google being the largest of the search engines means people who are into the web for money making use it to promote their goods and services.  From websites to blogs and more, Google is the place to be if you want that global exposure.  That being said, underhanded and unscrupulous types have been taking advantage of the old algorithms by using an y number of devious methods that Google has had to battle from the ground floor up.  With Panda 4.0, Google hopes to put the bad guys in check and get the quality content to the fore.

The amount of concern about SEO and Panda 4.0 has webmasters the world over scrambling to catch up but it doesn’t look like they’ll be able to for quite a while.  Google is getting better at staying ahead of the rotten webmasters who use every tactic they can to get to the top of the search engine pages.  There aren’t just a few hundred working on beating Google, we’re talking about millions.  Their livelihoods depend on them propping their websites in the top SE results where they mostly divert searchers to less than reputable results such as spamware, malware, and adware. These webmasters know SEO inside out and have been a plague to Google and other search engines for years.  Changing their algorithms with Panda 4.0 allows for Google to thwart these underhanded attempts and allow the average web surfer to get the search engine results they deserve.

Panda 4.0 was developed just for this contingency.  Google’s tech specialists looked at every tactic and technique they could get their computers on and strategized with their programmers to come up with a solution that they feel will be the game changer regarding SEO.  Google has to have the best relevant SE results or surfers will get frustrated and turn away.  We’ve all been victim of these websites that have been SEO’d to within an inch of their lives and rise to the top of the SE results and come to find out that nothing worth of value is on the pages.  We end up going deep into the pages for the real results burning up valuable time and effort.  Google realized this and went to work developing Panda 4.0 to put a damper on these tactics and thereby bring about the kind of search engine results that surfers deserve and honest, competent websites do too.

Battling For That SEO Victory

 

Matt Cutts Google SEO Tips 20140518 300x190 Battling For That SEO VictoryMatt Cutts from Google has added his expertise again and again regarding SEO.  Anyone trying to get good placement on Google had better listen to what he says and do your due diligence so you can beat the competition.

It’s all a matter of following certain basic principles that go along with SEO.  The small time site that might have superior content might not at first get that high placement but there are things that a website can do to rank higher in the short and long term.  Nothing happens overnight so patience and diligence are required here and that’s as basic as it gets.

Big sites have had two advantages, they’ve either been around longer with more links and interaction than yours and they’ve had SEO done to keep them on top.  Some started out small and worked their way up with large fanbases, in and outbound links, press, media, and social networking.  If your site has none of these it’s time to get busy and do it sensibly.

Your site might have far better content than the top ones.  You’ll need to get your site’s visibility out there so that the public can see this, bookmark you, share you, and more.  A well organized site is of utmost importance too.  Absurd graphics and wild bells and whistles won’t do it.  Sometimes with luck something on your site may go viral and you’ll suddenly find yourself at the top but it will be you that keeps you there.  Often a subject of controversy in your field of interest will emerge in the news.  Let’s say you covered this area of interest before the media put it in the spotlight, well it’s good to reason that when people are searching for relevant data your site will emerge suddenly as the premiere website regarding the subject.

Maybe a picture of let’s say a band you know of that isn’t popular but you’ve covered them on your site from their early beginnings.  Suddenly they have a hit song or one of the members has made headlines another way.  You suddenly see your stats rise and that’s when you strike.  Add more relevant content, interact via social media and pour it on.

Those are the startling fast ways but the old tried and true hold up as well.  The well paced webmaster will examine the site and update data and tweak the site so it doesn’t remain stale.  Adding a forum or some form of interaction boosts visibility and link exchanges.  As time goes on you’ll see your stats rise slowly but surely and will be based on a solid foundation of reliability instead of quickie techniques that only last a short time.

Slow as you go is the philosophy here because you can better gauge your success via the statistics showing hits, views, etc..  Once you see what’s successful you don’t futz around with it, you rinse and repeat that successful action or actions until you get to a point of recognition and statistical reliability.

Don’t go for the quick routes that call for shady companies that say they can get you to the top of Google after charging you an arm or a leg.  Google is always looking at ways to improve relevance and one day might just drop the importance of linking altogether as they know there are link farms and scams go ing on.

So remember, slow and steady wins the course here.  Keep on asking the official Google pros and other pros at the other search engines and keep your course straight.  Don’t fall for scams and never engage in unethical practices no matter what others say.  Google will catch on and slam you.

HERE ARE SIX GOOD INDICATORS TO REVISE YOUR SEO

how to seo 06 300x203 HERE ARE SIX GOOD INDICATORS TO REVISE YOUR SEOYour website or blog cost you money and time to build.  It is your window online to your business or interests.  Getting traffic from the search engines calls for precision Search Engine Optimization and when you don’t see results you can see these six signs your SEO service needs revisions.

1-  A trickle of traffic.  Your site has all the bells and whistles you want but you’re only getting a trickle of the traffic you want.  You hired an SEO service or did the job yourself and to no avail.  The search engines’ spiders look for keywords, keyphrases, placement of such, image tags and more in order to properly list and categorize your site.  Inefficient SEO will lead to little or no traffic at all.  This calls for revisions and it starts from the ground floor up.  You’ll need to look at every aspect of your site to see where you’re blocking or leaking traffic and then have the right expert come along and do the fixing.  Some experts can at a glance see what the overall problem is and in a few hours have things up and running like magic.

2- A drop in traffic.  Your site was doing good and traffic was pouring in then suddenly you check your stats and there’s been a major drop in traffic via the search engines.  That can mean only one thing, the present SEO you’ve got is out-dated and needs to be revised. Search engines change their algorithms constantly because as soon as they set up a new protocol some genius somewhere cracks it.  They exploit it and turn everything upside down. Now the search engines have to come up with a new algorithm to offset the exploiters and that means your site can take  big hit.  You’ll need a sharp SEO service to come along and tweak the revisions so that you can fairly get back into the game.

3- Lack of or drop off of conversions.  Some of your traffic converts.  The percentages vary which only your stats will show.  For example if you get one conversion out of every 1,000 hits and suddenly you see a drop in conversions then it means you have some SEO revisions to do.  An SEO service will go through your stats, history and find out what’s going on.  From there they’ll tweak anything that needs tweaking and you’ll be up and running.  Only a top SEO service can do this so shop carefully.

4- Inconsistent traffic.  You’re sitting there checking your stats and they bounce up and down like a rubber ball going down the stairs.  Some days are good, some days are rotten.  It’s because your SEO is not fine tuned and only a great SEO service can do this.  Somewhere in your text or tags there’s something causing this inconsistency.  It could be placement or an updated algorithm from one of the top search engines.  In either case you had better have it corrected quick.  Get your gear in order at the first sign of traffic inconsistency and let an SEO service do their job.

5- Not being at page one of Google.  Everyone wants their sites on the first page of Google.  The competition is so fierce that it’s a wonder sparks don’t fly off one’s computer when going to Google.  Google is the apex predator of search engines and a first page placement for your keywords is a major coup.  It takes fine tuning by a SEO service to achieve this and many will make the claims but you’ll need to do your due diligence to determine which SEO service to choose but once you find the best ones you’ll be back in the sunshine again.

6- Low return on investment.  To hedge your bets regarding paid for traffic like PPC or Pay Per Click ads you may notice a miserly or sudden drop in traffic that is quality and conversions.  You’ll need to get a SEO service immediately or you’ll be bleeding money.  PPC costs money.  It’s an investment where you want results from targeted traffic but when that investment doesn’t pan out it’s time to call in an SEO service and quickly.

Any of these six indicators are a cause for alarm to get an SEO service on your side and get things done right.

Doing SEO The Right Way

People try to do SEO on their own and some are pros and some aren’t.  There are those that apply SEO ethically and some that do not.  Knowing the inside and outside of SEO is a major plus in today’s need for website traffic and knowing what Google penalizes you for is the first step.

Doing SEO The Right Way Tips

First of all don’t try to reinvent the wheel.  Google’s algorithms change often but there are certain fundamentals that remain stable.  It’s because of so many people and companies that try to fool Google and don’t do SEO properly.  There’s always someone trying to outwit Google and goof up things for everyone else. They’ll pepper the web with their silly and contrived websites loaded with keywords and keyphrases in total disregard for SEO.  They’ll have irresponsible backlinking and all sorts of things that are despicable to say the least.  When Google finally busts them they end up getting penalized so badly that they have to start all over again.

The regular people doing SEO can often fall into these traps by buying SEO courses or attending webinars that aren’t all that reputable.  They’ll apply these techniques and then Google comes down on them like a pile of bricks.  This is why people need to study SEO from official Google and Bing sites.  There are plenty of tutorials and forums around where ethical approaches can be found.  The process now involves a methodical application of scanning a website and its associated sites like reviews, testimonials, and fans.

There are other criteria but Google and the other search engines keep these close to their chests.  It’s because if they were uncovered the balance of power would shift drastically.  People rely on Google for that traffic and having the right SEO approach.

Remember, trying to circumvent the ethical approach to SEO means sooner or later you’ll get slammed by the search engines and if you’re representing a client and their traffic drops and their sites get booted you can find yourself sitting in court answering a lot of questions you don’t want to answer.  It’s because no one likes a crook and although puffing up your website and doing SEO unethically isn’t a crime, it is a misrepresentation and underhanded to say the least.

Yes there’s competition and there are so many experts out there but that doesn’t mean you have to stoop to the level they do to get over.  Their path leads to major losses in capital and reputation they won’t get out of it anytime soon.  So keep your chin up and study from the honorable SEO experts and you’ll do alright.

Now that’s been said it’s time to move on to studying SEO and seeing what you come up with.  You may well find that you’ll find a way to optimize your SEO that others haven’t come up with and put you way out on top.  That’s what’s cool with SEO.  You can stand on the fundamentals and experiment and come up with something new and improved.  It’s just a matter of getting in there with the right professional attitude.
