A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEARCH & THE CHANGING
NATURE OF SEO
How Important is First Page Ranking?
Source: Seeing Between the Lines of the Search and the Click – Kantar Media/Compete – Oct. 2012
!   87% of clicks go to top 5 organic
spots
!  #1 = 53%
!  #2 = 15%
!  #3 = 9%
!  #4 = 6%
!  #5 = 4%.
53% of clicks go to the first organic result
What is SEO?
!  SEO is a ongoing, multidisciplinary
approach to achieving strong and lasting
organic rankings in search via
following best practices for creating
accessible, well-structured, relevant,
informative, and unique content that
satisfies the users' query and intent.
!   Good SEO = Relevant indexing and ranking
!   Bad SEO = Risk of lasting damage to a website and reputation (BMW, JCPenny, Interflora).
!   NOT - about building pages for search engines, robots, and spiders.
SEO = Moving Towards True Consensus
20 Years in Search History
!   1993 – Wandex developed at MIT
!   1995 – Yahoo Launches its Web Directory
!   1998 – Google Launches, DMOZ launches this same year
!   2000 – Yahoo Drops Altavista, Uses Google’s Algorithm
!   2001 – PageRank is showed to users through the toolbar
!   2005 – NoFollow Tag Introduced
!   2007 – Universal Search
!   2009 – Google Introduces Caffeine Algorithm, a major shift in SEO.
!   2009 – Bing and Yahoo Merge
!   2011 – Panda Algorithm Update. A major step in the history of SEO
!   2012 – Penguin Algorithm Update
!   2013 – Panda becomes real-time in March via machine learning

to 500 – 600 times” - SEOmoz

Google “Search Plus Your World” = HUGE SHIFT
Google Panda – UNIQUE CONTENT
!   Launched US/UK Feb 2011, Global Aug 2011
!  Filter for low quality pages
!  Aimed at: shallow, poorly written or plagiarized content and sites that carry
excessive advertising (affiliates)
!  Introduction to machine learning
!   To date has had an impact on 20% of results
!   Panda real-time as of March, 2013
!   Considerations as a result:
!  Focus on providing a great user experience
!  Create original, good quality content
!  Avoid carrying too many adverts
Quality
Google Penguin – NATURAL LINKING
!   Launched April 2012
!  Filter for ‘web spam’
!  Aimed at: keyword stuffing, hidden content, spammy inbound
links, plagiarized content
!   Considerations as a result:
!  Clean up link profile, do NOT buy links
!  Reduce # links with exact keyword phrases (internal and
external)
!  Eliminate overuse of keywords (that you are aiming to rank for)
Natural
Linking
True Consensus - User Engagement/Satisfaction
!  Bounce rates: If a user hits your content from
Google, then bounces straight back out, that's not
a good sign.
!   Content should engage and resonate with audience.
!   CTR, Time-on-site, Bounce Rate, Engagement
!  Social signals: Are people sharing content via
social channels?
!  Authorship: Who wrote the content? Are they an
authoritative writer or influencer within your
niche?

Google Universal Results Have Matured
!   [UPDATE, 8 AUGUST 2012: As much as I appreciate seeing this research continue to circulate online,
I'd like to note that these findings are now almost 4 years old, and are almost certainly no longer
accurate. Just as you wouldn't rely upon Nielsen ratings from January 2009 to tell you what's popular
on TV today, nor can the data below tell you how Google is handling search results today.] –
Nate Elliot, Forrester
Understanding Universal Video Search Results
Transactional
Intent
Informational
Intent
Universal Video Search Result Triggers
!   What keyword triggers work?
!  Obvious – “video” “show”
!  Instructional - “how-to”
!  Informational - “review” “unboxing” “about”
!  Navigational - website, brand names, etc…
!  Long-tail queries
!  less competition (e.g. homedics breathe air revitalizer)
!  Less intent based feedback
!   What keyword don’t often trigger?
!  Transactional keywords “buy,” “free,” or “sale”
!  Local search
!   Don’t forget, it’s Google’s control

“…we’re also launching video
support for schema.org. …now
the recommended way to
describe videos on the web.”
– Henry Zhang, Product Manager for
Google Videos
How to Markup Videos with Schema
Must include the following
!   itemscope and itemtype
!   Name (title)
!   thumbnailURL
!   embedURL
!   Description
!   More info – http://www.reelseo.com/schema-markup-video/
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/VideoObject">
<h2>Video: <span itemprop="name">Title</span></h2>
<meta itemprop="thumbnailURL" content="http://site.com/
thumbnail.jpg" />
<meta itemprop="embedURL” content="http://site.com/player.swf?
123"/>
<object ...>
<embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" ...>
</object>
<span itemprop="description">Video description</span>
</div>
Working with Schema Markup
!   Make sure markup is done in the source code for that page.
!  It needs to be visible without executing any JavaScript or Flash.
!   Submit a video sitemap
!  Helps Google discover/index videos (schema not sufficient)
!  Provides faster updates (new or updated videos)
!  Provides additional information about your video content
!   Use the same info in both your video sitemap, and your on-page markup.
Verifying Video Markup
Google’s Rich Snippet Testing Tool - http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets
!   Provides verification of proper markup
!   May not appear with the rich snippets
