Predicting Google's Next Algorithm Change

605

Published on

“Animalgorithms” like Panda and Penguin continue to disrupt dated SEO, aggressively shaking outdated websites and shoddy SEO to the bottom, and raising up higher quality, content-rich sites that attract real links and likes.

AuthorRank Rules: As infographics, articles, and press releases proliferate, Google has developed new ways to rank that content based on authority and relevance. Are your virtual press credentials in order?

The Social Layer Will Drive SEO Google’s been harvesting data from the 100 million active monthly users of its “social layer”, Google+. How are they using it to crowdsource their search rankings and surface the freshest relevant content?

  • Client logos
  • It’s funny, but it also reflects an outdated view of what search engine optimization is- that stuffing a list of synonyms onto your website could improve your rankings on all of them.
  • Google Panda was built through an algorithm update that used artificial intelligence in a more sophisticated and scalable way than previously possible. Human quality testers rated thousands of websites based on measures of quality, including design, trustworthiness, speed and whether or not they would return to the website. Google's new Panda machine-learning algorithm, made possible by and named after engineer Navneet Panda, was then used to look for similarities between websites people found to be high quality and low quality.
  • How? Content.
  • We’re looking at different types of links and a systematic approach to building them. But all of this depends on generating that keyword rich content that we discussed in the last section.
  • Google has a program called “Authorship” that involves authentication via a Google+ page and a dedicated author page on your website.
  • Join us for next week’s webinar about the SEO and Conversion Value of Video
  • This is a report undertaken by our friends at SEOmoz some months back, averaging the predictions of many of our peer organizations.
  • Before getting knee-deep in all the features Analytics offers, let’s remind ourselves of our over-arching intention. Our goal with Analytics to be able to draw a straight line from the many search queries that are relevant to my company, to know how many of those searchers we acquired, whether through organic, paid search, social media or other kinds of referral traffic, and then measuring the desired visitor behaviors and outcomes that happen on your website. Don’t get sidetracked with absolute numbers of visitors, clicks, social followers, pageviews or time on site. Once you are able to decide what are most essential elements to measure, create custom dashboards to display that information, and share that dashboard to members of various teams.
