Remember
When…
We Had One Job
Perfectly Optimized Pages
The Search Quality
Teams Determined
What to Include in
the Ranking System
They decided
links > content
By 2007, Link Spam Was Ubiquitous
This paper/presentation from
Yahoo’s spam team in 2007
predicted a lot of what Google
would launch in Penguin Oct,
2012 (including machine
learning)
Even in 2012, It Felt Like Google Was Making Liars Out
of the White Hat SEO World
Via Wil Reynolds
Google’s Last 3 Years of
Advancements Erased a
Decade of Old School
SEO Practices
They Finally Launched EffectiveAlgorithms to Fight
Manipulative Links & Content
Via Google
And They Leveraged Fear + Uncertainty of
Penalization to Keep Sites Inline
Via Moz Q+A
Google Figured Out Intent
Rand probably doesn’t
just want webpages
filled with the word
“beef”
They Looked at Language, not Just Keywords
Oh… I totally
know this one!
They Predicted When We Want Diverse Results
He probably
doesn’t just want a
bunch of lists.
They Figured Out When We Wanted Freshness
Old pages on this
topic probably
aren’t relevant
anymore
Their Segmentation of Navigational from Informational
Queries Closed Many Loopholes
Google Learned to ID Entities of Knowledge
And to Connect Entities to Topics & Keywords
Via Moz
Brands Became a Form of Entities
TheseAdvancements Brought Google (mostly) Back
in Line w/ Its Public Statements
Via Google
During These Advances,
Google’s Search Quality
Team Underwent a
Revolution
Early On, Google Rejected Machine Learning in the
Organic RankingAlgo
Via Datawocky,
2008
Amit Singhal Shared Norvig’s ConcernsAbout ML
Via Quora
In 2012, Google Published a PaperAbout How
they Use ML to Predict Ad CTRs:
Via Google
2012
“Our SmartASS system is a
machine learning system. It
learns whether our users are
interested in that ad, and
whether users are going to click
on them.”
By 2013, It Was
Something Google’s
Search Folks Talked
About Publicly
Via SELand
As MLTakes Over More of Google’sAlgo, the
Underpinnings of the Rankings Change
Via Colossal
Google is PublicAbout How They Use MLin Image

This is a good SERP – searchers
rarely bounce, rarely short-click,
and rarely need to enter other
queries or go to page 2.
Training Data
(e.g.badsearchresults!)
This is a bad SERP – searchers
bounce often, click other results,
rarely long-click, and try other
queries. They’re definitely not
happy.

Dean says by using deep learning,
they don’t have to tell the system
what a cat is, the machines learn,
unsupervised, for themselves…
We’re TalkingAbout

(without human intervention)
Googlers Don’t Feed in Ranking Factors… The Machines
Determine Those Themselves.

What Does Deep Learning
Mean for SEO?
Googlers Won’t Know Why Something Ranks or
Whether a Variable’s in theAlgo
He means other Googlers.
I’m Jeff Dean. I’ll know.
The Query Success Metrics Will BeAll That
Matters to the Machines
Long to Short Click Ratio Relative CTR vs. Other Results
Rate of Searchers Conducting
Additional, Related Searches
Metrics of User Engagement
on the Page
Metrics of User Engagement
Across the Domain

Metrics of User Engagement

Sharing/Amplifcation Rate
vs. Other Results
If lots of results on a SERP do
these well, and higher results
outperform lower results, our
deep learning algo will consider
it a success.
We’ll Be Optimizing Less
for Ranking Inputs
Unique Linking Domains
Keywords in Title
Anchor Text
Content Uniqueness
Page Load Speed
And Optimizing More for Searcher Outputs
High CTR for this position?
Good engagement?
High amplification rate?
Low bounce rate?
Strong pages/visit after
landing on this URL?These are likely to be the criteria of
on-site SEO’s future… People return to the site
after an initial search visit
OK… Maybe in the future.
But, do those kinds of
metrics really affect SEO
today?
Remember Our Queries & Clicks Test from 2014?
Via Rand’s Blog
Since then, it’s been much harder to move the
needle with raw queries and clicks…
Case closed! Google says they don’t use clicks in the rankings.
Via Linkarati’s Coverage of SMX Advanced
But, what if we tried long
clicks vs.
short clicks?
Note SeriousEats,
ranking #4 here
11:39am on June 21st,
I sent this tweet:
40 Minutes & ~400
Interactions Later
Moved up 2 positions after 2+ weeks
of the top 5 staying static.
70 Minutes & ~500
Interactions Total
Moved up to #1.
Stayed ~12 hours, when it
fell to #13+ for ~8 hours, then
back to #4.
Google? You
messing with us?
Via Google Trends, we can see the relative impact
of the test on query volume
~5-10X normal volume over
3-4 hours
BTW –This is hard to replicate.600+
real searchersusinga varietyof
devices,browsers,accounts,geos,etc.
willnot lookthe same to Googleas a
Fiverr buy,a clickfarm,or a bot.And
note how G penalizedthe page after the
test…They might not put it back if they
thoughtthe site itselfwas to blame for
the clickmanipulation.
The Future:
Optimizing for Two
Algorithms
The Best SEOs HaveAlways
Optimized to Where Google’s Going
Today, I Think We Know,
Better Than Ever, Where That Is

5 New(ish) Elements of
Modern SEO
Punching Above Your
Ranking’s Average CTR#1
Optimizing the Title, Meta Description, & URL
a Little for KWs, but a Lot for Clicks
If you rank #3, but have a higher-than-
average CTR for that position, you might
get moved up.
Via Philip Petrescu on Moz
Every Element Counts
Does the title match what
searchers want?
Does the URLseem
compelling?
Do searchers recognize
& want to click your
domain?
Is your result fresh? Do
searchers want a newer
result?
Does the description
create curiosity & entice
a click?
Do you get the brand
dropdown?
Given Google Often Tests New Results Briefly on Page One…

Together, Pogo-Sticking & Long Clicks Might
Determine a Lot of Where You Rank (and for how
long)
Via Bill Slawski on Moz
What Influences Them?
Speed, Speed, and More Speed
Delivers the Best UX on Every Browser
Compels Visitors to Go Deeper Into Your Site
Avoids Features thatAnnoy or Dissuade Visitors
Content that Fulfills the Searcher’s Conscious &
Unconscious Needs
An SEO’s Checklist for Better Engagement:
Via NY Times
e.g. this interactive graph
that asks visitors to draw
their best guess likely gets
remarkable engagement
e.g. Poor Norbert does
a terrible job at SEO,
but the simplicity
compels visitors to go
deeper and to return
time and again
Via VoilaNorbert
e.g. Nomadlist’s superb,
filterable database of
cities and community for
remote workers.
Via Nomadlist
Filling Gaps in Your
Visitors’ Knowledge#3
Google’s looking for
content signals that a
page will fulfill ALL of a
searcher’s needs.
I think I know a few
ways to figure that
out.
ML models may note that
the presence of certain
words, phrases, & topics
predict more successful
searches
e.g. a page about New York that doesn’t
mention Brooklyn or Long Island may not be
very comprehensive
If Your Content Doesn’t Fill the Gaps in Searcher’s Needs…
e.g. for this query, Google might
seek content that includes topics
like “text classification,”
“tokenization,” “parsing,” and
“question answering”
Those Rankings Go to Pages/Sites That Do.
Moz’s Data Science Team
is Working on Something to
Help With This
The (alpha) tool extracts likely
focal topics from a given
page, which can then be
compared vs. an engines top
10 results
In the meantime, check
out
AlchemyAPI
Or MonkeyLearn
Earning More Shares,
Links, & Loyalty per Visit#4
Pages that get lots of
social activity &
engagement, but few
links, seem to
overperform…
Google says they
don’t use social
signals directly, but
examples like these
make SEOs
suspicious
Even for insanely competitive
keywords, we see this type of
behavior when a URLgets
authentically “hot” in the
social world.
Data from Buzzsumo & Moz
show that very few articles
earn sharesAND that links &
shares have almost no
correlation.
Via Buzzsumo & Moz
I suspect Google doesn’t
use raw social shares as
a ranking input, because
we share a lot of content
with which we don’t
engage:
Via Chartbeat
Google Could Be Using a Lot of Other Metrics/Sources to Get
Data That Mimics Social Shares:
Clickstream (from Chrome/Android)
Engagement (from Chrome/Android)
Branded Queries (from Search)
Navigational Queries (from Search)
Rate of Link Growth (from Crawl)
But I Don’t Care if It’s Correlation or Causation;
I Want to Rank Like These Guys!
BTW – GoogleAlmost Certainly Classifies SERPs
Differently & Optimizes to Different Goals
These URLs have loads of shares & may have high loyalty, but
for medical queries, Google has different priorities
Raw Shares & LinksAre Fine Metrics…
Via Buzzsumo
But If the Competition Naturally Earns
Them Faster, You’re Outta Luck
4 new shares/day
2 new shares/day
3 new shares/day
10 new shares/day
And Google Probably Wants to See Shares that
Result in Loyalty & Returning Visits
New KPI #1: Shares & Links Per 1,000 Visits
Unique Visits
÷
Shares + Links
Via Moz’s 1Metric
New KPI #2: Return Visitor Ratio Over Time
Total Visitor Sessions
÷
# of Returning Visitors
Knowing What Makes OurAudience (and their
influencers) Share is Essential
From an analysis of the
10,000 pieces of content
receiving the most social
shares on the web by
Buzzsumo.
Knowing What Makes them Return (or prevents
them from doing so) Is, Too.
We Don’t Need “Better” Content… We Need “10X” Content.
Via Whiteboard Friday
Wrong Question:
“How do we make something as
good as this?”
Right Question:
“How do we make something 10X
better than any of these?”
10X Content is the Future, Because It’s the Only Way to Stand
Out from the Increasingly-Noisy Crowd
http://www.simplereach.com/blog/facebook-continues-to-be-the-
biggest-driver-of-social-traffic/
The top 10% of content
gets all the social shares
and traffic.

None of our old school tactics will get this done.
Fulfilling the Searcher’s
Task (not just their query)#5
Broad search Narrower search
Even narrower search
Website visit
Website visit Brand search
Social validation Highly-specific search
Type-in/direct visit Completion of Task
Google Wants to Get SearchersAccomplishing
Their Tasks Faster
Broad search
All the sites (or answers) you probably would
have visited/sought along that path
Completion of Task
This is Their Ultimate Goal:
If Google sees
that many people
who perform these
types of queries:
Eventually end
their queries on
the topic after
visiting Ramen
Rater…
The Ramen Rater
They might use the
clickstream data to help
rank that site higher, even
if it doesn’t have
traditional ranking signals
They’re definitely getting and storing it.
APage ThatAnswers the Searcher’s Initial Query
May Not Be Enough
Searchers performing this query
are likely to have the goal of
completing a transaction
Google Wants to Send Searchers
to Websites that Resolve their
Mission
This is the only site where
you can reliably find the
back issues and collector
covers
Welcome to the
Two-Algorithm World of
2015
Algo 1: Google
Algo 2: Subset of Humanity that
Interacts With Your Content
“Make Pages for People, Not
Engines.”
Terrible Advice.

Last 6 months… It’sAll Yours:

#2) Not all content earns links… Buzzsumo & Moz
collaborated to find out what does:

SEO in a Two Algorithm World

  • 1. Rand Fishkin, Wizard of Moz | @randfish | rand@moz.com SEO in a Two Algorithm World
  • 6. The Search Quality Teams Determined What to Include in the Ranking System
  • 8. By 2007, Link Spam Was Ubiquitous This paper/presentation from Yahoo’s spam team in 2007 predicted a lot of what Google would launch in Penguin Oct, 2012 (including machine learning)
  • 9. Even in 2012, It Felt Like Google Was Making Liars Out of the White Hat SEO World Via Wil Reynolds
  • 10. Google’s Last 3 Years of Advancements Erased a Decade of Old School SEO Practices
  • 11. They Finally Launched EffectiveAlgorithms to Fight Manipulative Links & Content Via Google
  • 12. And They Leveraged Fear + Uncertainty of Penalization to Keep Sites Inline Via Moz Q+A
  • 13. Google Figured Out Intent Rand probably doesn’t just want webpages filled with the word “beef”
  • 14.
  • 15. They Looked at Language, not Just Keywords Oh… I totally know this one!
  • 16.
  • 17. They Predicted When We Want Diverse Results He probably doesn’t just want a bunch of lists.
  • 18.
  • 19. They Figured Out When We Wanted Freshness Old pages on this topic probably aren’t relevant anymore
  • 20.
  • 21. Their Segmentation of Navigational from Informational Queries Closed Many Loopholes
  • 22. Google Learned to ID Entities of Knowledge
  • 23. And to Connect Entities to Topics & Keywords Via Moz
  • 24. Brands Became a Form of Entities
  • 25. TheseAdvancements Brought Google (mostly) Back in Line w/ Its Public Statements Via Google
  • 26. During These Advances, Google’s Search Quality Team Underwent a Revolution
  • 27. Early On, Google Rejected Machine Learning in the Organic RankingAlgo Via Datawocky, 2008
  • 28. Amit Singhal Shared Norvig’s ConcernsAbout ML Via Quora
  • 29. In 2012, Google Published a PaperAbout How they Use ML to Predict Ad CTRs: Via Google
  • 30. 2012 “Our SmartASS system is a machine learning system. It learns whether our users are interested in that ad, and whether users are going to click on them.”
  • 31. By 2013, It Was Something Google’s Search Folks Talked About Publicly Via SELand
  • 32. As MLTakes Over More of Google’sAlgo, the Underpinnings of the Rankings Change Via Colossal
  • 33. Google is PublicAbout How They Use MLin Image Recognition & Classification Potential ID Factors (e.g.color,shapes,gradients, perspective,interlacing,alttags, surroundingtext,etc) Training Data (i.e.human-labeledimages) Learning Process Best Match Algo
  • 34. Google is PublicAbout How They Use MLin Image Recognition & Classification ViaJeffDean’sSlidesonDeepLearning;aMustReadforSEOs
  • 35. Machine Learning in Search Could Work Like This: Potential Ranking Factors (e.g.PageRank,TF*IDF, TopicModeling,QDF,Clicks, EntityAssociation,etc.) Training Data (i.e.good&badsearchresults) Learning Process Best Fit Algo
  • 36. Training Data (e.g.goodsearchresults) This is a good SERP – searchers rarely bounce, rarely short-click, and rarely need to enter other queries or go to page 2.
  • 37. Training Data (e.g.badsearchresults!) This is a bad SERP – searchers bounce often, click other results, rarely long-click, and try other queries. They’re definitely not happy.
  • 38. The Machines Learn to Emulate the Good Results & Try to Fix orTweak the Bad Results Potential Ranking Factors (e.g.PageRank,TF*IDF, TopicModeling,QDF,Clicks, EntityAssociation,etc.) Training Data (i.e.good&badsearchresults) Learning Process Best Fit Algo
  • 39. Deep Learning is Even MoreAdvanced: Dean says by using deep learning, they don’t have to tell the system what a cat is, the machines learn, unsupervised, for themselves…
  • 40. We’re TalkingAbout Algorithms that Build Algorithms (without human intervention)
  • 41. Googlers Don’t Feed in Ranking Factors… The Machines Determine Those Themselves. Potential Ranking Factors (e.g.PageRank,TF*IDF, TopicModeling,QDF,Clicks, EntityAssociation,etc.) Training Data (i.e.goodsearchresults) Learning Process Best Fit Algo
  • 42. No wonder these guys are stressed about Google unleashing the Terminators  Via CNET & Washington Post
  • 43. What Does Deep Learning Mean for SEO?
  • 44. Googlers Won’t Know Why Something Ranks or Whether a Variable’s in theAlgo He means other Googlers. I’m Jeff Dean. I’ll know.
  • 45. The Query Success Metrics Will BeAll That Matters to the Machines Long to Short Click Ratio Relative CTR vs. Other Results Rate of Searchers Conducting Additional, Related Searches Metrics of User Engagement on the Page Metrics of User Engagement Across the Domain Sharing/Amplifcation Rate vs. Other Results
  • 46. The Query Success Metrics Will BeAll That Matters to the Machines Long to Short Click Ratio Relative CTR vs. Other Results Rate of Searchers Conducting Additional, Related Searches Metrics of User Engagement on the Page Metrics of User Engagement Across the Domain Sharing/Amplifcation Rate vs. Other Results If lots of results on a SERP do these well, and higher results outperform lower results, our deep learning algo will consider it a success.
  • 47. We’ll Be Optimizing Less for Ranking Inputs Unique Linking Domains Keywords in Title Anchor Text Content Uniqueness Page Load Speed
  • 48. And Optimizing More for Searcher Outputs High CTR for this position? Good engagement? High amplification rate? Low bounce rate? Strong pages/visit after landing on this URL?These are likely to be the criteria of on-site SEO’s future… People return to the site after an initial search visit
  • 49. OK… Maybe in the future. But, do those kinds of metrics really affect SEO today?
  • 50. Remember Our Queries & Clicks Test from 2014? Via Rand’s Blog
  • 51. Since then, it’s been much harder to move the needle with raw queries and clicks…
  • 52. Case closed! Google says they don’t use clicks in the rankings. Via Linkarati’s Coverage of SMX Advanced
  • 53. But, what if we tried long clicks vs. short clicks? Note SeriousEats, ranking #4 here
  • 54. 11:39am on June 21st, I sent this tweet:
  • 55. 40 Minutes & ~400 Interactions Later Moved up 2 positions after 2+ weeks of the top 5 staying static.
  • 56. 70 Minutes & ~500 Interactions Total Moved up to #1.
  • 57. Stayed ~12 hours, when it fell to #13+ for ~8 hours, then back to #4. Google? You messing with us?
  • 58. Via Google Trends, we can see the relative impact of the test on query volume ~5-10X normal volume over 3-4 hours
  • 59. BTW –This is hard to replicate.600+ real searchersusinga varietyof devices,browsers,accounts,geos,etc. willnot lookthe same to Googleas a Fiverr buy,a clickfarm,or a bot.And note how G penalizedthe page after the test…They might not put it back if they thoughtthe site itselfwas to blame for the clickmanipulation.
  • 60. The Future: Optimizing for Two Algorithms
  • 61. The Best SEOs HaveAlways Optimized to Where Google’s Going
  • 62. Today, I Think We Know, Better Than Ever, Where That Is Welcometoyournewhome,theUser/UsageSignals+MLModelCabin
  • 63. We Must Choose How to Balance Our Work…
  • 64. Hammering on the Fading Signals of Old…
  • 65. Or Embracing Those We Can See On the Rise
  • 66. Classic On-Site SEO (rankinginputs) New On-Site SEO (searcher outputs) Keyword Targeting Relative CTR Short vs. Long-Click Content Gap Fulfillment Amplification & Loyalty Task Completion Success Quality & Uniqueness Crawl/Bot Friendly Snippet Optimization UX / Multi-Device
  • 67. 5 New(ish) Elements of Modern SEO
  • 69. Optimizing the Title, Meta Description, & URL a Little for KWs, but a Lot for Clicks If you rank #3, but have a higher-than- average CTR for that position, you might get moved up. Via Philip Petrescu on Moz
  • 70. Every Element Counts Does the title match what searchers want? Does the URLseem compelling? Do searchers recognize & want to click your domain? Is your result fresh? Do searchers want a newer result? Does the description create curiosity & entice a click? Do you get the brand dropdown?
  • 71. Given Google Often Tests New Results Briefly on Page One… ItMayBeWorthRepeatedPublicationonaTopictoEarnthatHighCTR Shoot! My post only made it to #15… Perhaps I’ll try again in a few months.
  • 72. Driving Up CTR Through Branding Or Branded Searches May GiveAn Extra Boost
  • 73. #1Ad Spender #2Ad Spender #4Ad Spender #3Ad Spender #5Ad Spender
  • 74. WithGoogleTrends’ new, moreaccurate, morecustomizable ranges, youcan actuallywatchthe effectsofevents and adsonsearchquery volume Fitbit has been running ads on Sunday NFLgames that clearly show in the search trends data.
  • 75. Beating Out Your Fellow SERP Residents on Engagement#2
  • 76. Together, Pogo-Sticking & Long Clicks Might Determine a Lot of Where You Rank (and for how long) Via Bill Slawski on Moz
  • 78. Speed, Speed, and More Speed Delivers the Best UX on Every Browser Compels Visitors to Go Deeper Into Your Site Avoids Features thatAnnoy or Dissuade Visitors Content that Fulfills the Searcher’s Conscious & Unconscious Needs An SEO’s Checklist for Better Engagement:
  • 79. Via NY Times e.g. this interactive graph that asks visitors to draw their best guess likely gets remarkable engagement
  • 80. e.g. Poor Norbert does a terrible job at SEO, but the simplicity compels visitors to go deeper and to return time and again Via VoilaNorbert
  • 81. e.g. Nomadlist’s superb, filterable database of cities and community for remote workers. Via Nomadlist
  • 82. Filling Gaps in Your Visitors’ Knowledge#3
  • 83. Google’s looking for content signals that a page will fulfill ALL of a searcher’s needs. I think I know a few ways to figure that out.
  • 84. ML models may note that the presence of certain words, phrases, & topics predict more successful searches
  • 85. e.g. a page about New York that doesn’t mention Brooklyn or Long Island may not be very comprehensive
  • 86. If Your Content Doesn’t Fill the Gaps in Searcher’s Needs… e.g. for this query, Google might seek content that includes topics like “text classification,” “tokenization,” “parsing,” and “question answering” Those Rankings Go to Pages/Sites That Do.
  • 87. Moz’s Data Science Team is Working on Something to Help With This The (alpha) tool extracts likely focal topics from a given page, which can then be compared vs. an engines top 10 results
  • 88. In the meantime, check out AlchemyAPI Or MonkeyLearn
  • 89. Earning More Shares, Links, & Loyalty per Visit#4
  • 90. Pages that get lots of social activity & engagement, but few links, seem to overperform…
  • 91. Google says they don’t use social signals directly, but examples like these make SEOs suspicious
  • 92. Even for insanely competitive keywords, we see this type of behavior when a URLgets authentically “hot” in the social world.
  • 93. Data from Buzzsumo & Moz show that very few articles earn sharesAND that links & shares have almost no correlation. Via Buzzsumo & Moz
  • 94. I suspect Google doesn’t use raw social shares as a ranking input, because we share a lot of content with which we don’t engage: Via Chartbeat
  • 95. Google Could Be Using a Lot of Other Metrics/Sources to Get Data That Mimics Social Shares: Clickstream (from Chrome/Android) Engagement (from Chrome/Android) Branded Queries (from Search) Navigational Queries (from Search) Rate of Link Growth (from Crawl)
  • 96. But I Don’t Care if It’s Correlation or Causation; I Want to Rank Like These Guys!
