Seo; Cutting Through The Noise

  1. 1. SEO & Cutting Through The Noise Pubtelligence London Bill Slawski Go Fish Digital October 23, 2018 @bill_slawski
  2. 2. Search Evolves and Changes. This includes Digital Publishing. Those changes can be hidden behind a lot of noise. Are You Keeping up with the Changes? @bill_slawski
  3. 3. Systems and methods for improving the ranking of news articles 2003-09-16 @bill_slawski Systems and methods for improving the ranking of news articles 2015-05-19 We see changes in places such as the claims behind this earliest version of a Patent on News Rankings: Web publishers aren’t seen as large news agencies in this latest granted version of this patent:
  4. 4. In Systems and methods for improving the ranking of news articles 2003-09-16 Metric values for a news source based at least in part on (1) an article produced by the news source during a first time period, (2) an average length of articles produced by the news source, (3) an amount of coverage that the news source produces in a second time period, (4) a breaking news score, (5) an amount of network traffic to the news source, (6) a human opinion of the news source, (7) circulation statistics of the news source, @bill_slawski
  5. 5. And: (8) a size of a staff associated with the news source, (9) a number of bureaus associated with the news source, (10) a number of original named entities in a group of articles associated with the news source, (11) a breadth of coverage by the news source, (12) a number of different countries from which network traffic to the news source originates, (13) or a writing style used by the news source determining, by the processor, (14) an importance metric value representing the amount of coverage that the news source produces in a second time period, @bill_slawski
  6. 6. Systems and methods for improving the ranking of news articles 2015-05-19 The system of claim 12, where the one or more metrics for the source further include a metric relating to a quantity of hyperlinks to a web site of the source. @bill_slawski
  7. 7. Method and apparatus for clustering news online content based on content freshness and quality of content source Granted: 2016-06-07 Another patent, originally filed in 2002 that captures some of the ranking signals that used to appear in the other news patent. @bill_slawski
  8. 8. Additional signals from Clustering Patent The measure of freshness being based on a first time when the event occurred and a second time when the online content was published; The measure of freshness is based on a frequency in which the source of the online content publishes new online content in a particular time period. The second score is based on circulation statistics of the source. The second score is based on a number of views of the online content that occur within a particular time frame. @bill_slawski
  9. 9. New Directions for Digital Publishers - In addition to Web-based Digital Publishers, we are seeing Search and Content become more about Things and Voice Search Optimize for Entities Add “Speakable” Schema How Google May Optimize for Prosody in Voice Search @bill_slawski
  10. 10. Optimize for Entities <script type="application/ld+json"> { "@context": "", "@type": "Movie", "name": "Ghostbusters", "productionCompany": { "@type": "Organization", "name": "Black Rhino" }, "countryOfOrigin": { "@type": "Country", "name": "USA" } } </script> @bill_slawski
  11. 11. Add MIDs for Entities <script type="application/ld+json"> { "@context" : "", "@type" : "Person", "name" : "Bill Slawski", "image" : "", "url" : "", "sameAs" : [ "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "" ] } </script>
  12. 12. Identify Main Entity of Pages <script type="application/ld+json"> { "@context": "", "@type": "Restaurant", "mainEntityOfPage": { "@type": "WebPage", "@id": "" }, "name": "Cath's Cafe", "openingHours": "Mo,Tu,We,Th,Fr,Sa,Su 11:00-20:00", "telephone": "+155501003344", "menu": "/menu" } </script> @bill_slawski
  13. 13. Include Entity in Schema for Pages rdf:type schema:NewsArticle schema:mainEntityOfPage for-10-years schema:publisher See Statement Collection #3 schema:headline Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who debut is most watched launch for 10 years schema:description An average of 8.2m tuned in to watch actor as first female Doctor, with peak of 9m and audience share of 40.1% @bill_slawski
  14. 14. Answer Questions (who, what, when, where, and how) and Identify the answers that you want read by Digital Assistants in the Schema of your page using the experimental Speakable markup, which Google has said that they will be using. The Speakable Schema is at: types/speakable @bill_slawski You need to be a valid News site in Google. Speakable presently works in the US for English Speakers, and will be brought to other countries and languages as soon as a sufficient number of publishers have implemented it. There are helpful guidelines for using Speakable so that it provides answers that people like. I’ve been asking a Google Speaker lots of questions about news to get a sense of how questions are being answered. So read those guidelines.
  15. 15. Optimize for Spoken Answers Good night, good night. Parting is such sweet sorrow That I shall say good night till it be morrow. One place we see the sounds of Speech is in plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, written in Iambic Pentameter: We need to be concerned with the sounds of the words that we make speakable; Those sounds are referred to as Prosody. Without Prosody, we sometimes have comedy (be careful) like the American Comedian Steven Wright, who has said (in a monotone): I recommend reading this Google paper: Prosody Modifications for Question-Answering in Voice-Only Settings: @bill_slawski I have a full scale Map of the United States. I keep it folded in my backyard.
