One of the ways you can become an SEO expert is to learn all about Google’s secret algorithm. Its algorithm dictates everything that happens in Google’s search result. The algorithm is the key that can unlock insane amounts of wealth, but it can also be the penalty that can ruin your online business.

It sounds like a crazy task to try to understand the algorithm, but there are ways. After years of learning, teaching, and watching SEO in action on thousands of different websites, I have developed a process for predicting Google’s algorithm changes.

And no, I don’t have all the answers. I’m not pretending to have some prophetic insight into Google’s next move, and this isn’t some scammy tell-all about the latest algorithmic loophole.

This is a practical how-to guide that equips you with knowledge that will help you make a good guess at how the algorithm is going to change over time.

Why Isn't Google Using Social Signals for SEO? -Here's Why with Mark & Eric Episode 4

In the 4-minute video below, +Mark Traphagen and +Eric Enge of +Stone Temple Consulting explain why there is not yet any discernible direct effect of social signals on SEO in Google rankings. Here's a complete transcript:

(Resource article links are at the end of this transcript)

ERIC: Welcome to another thrilling episode of "Here's Why with Mark and Eric." I'm Eric Enge, CEO of Stone Temple Consulting, and with me is...

MARK: Mark Traphagen, Senior Director of Online Marketing for Stone Temple Consulting. 

ERIC: So Mark, why is that Google is not making more use of social signals?

MARK: Well, Eric, a lot of people assume that they do, that Google draws a lot of signal--and by signal, we should first define that we mean what factors in to Google search? 

So a lot of people assume they're all this signal out there--there's Facebook Likes and Google +1's, there are retweets on Twitter, and people sharing things all over--that' got to be a rich source of signal. Most people probably assume that Google is using that. Certainly, Google has talked about wanting to make use of that, and that that is a rich signal. 

So why don't we think they're making more use of it? Simply because Google will serve no search ranking signal before its time. They're very, very careful. They're so guarded about that algorithm that determines what ranks. It has to be accurate. It has to be dependable information. The livelihood of their company depends on it. 

So they take they're time in testing and learning, "How do we evaluate a signal?" Evaluating a social signal is not as easy as people assume. For example, I see Stone Temple Consulting come up on Facebook, and I "Like" it. Why did I like it? Did I like it because I really do like Stone Temple Consulting? Did I like it because Eric's picture is there, and he's so handsome I've just got to like it? Is it because they have a coupon, a game, a funny cat picture? It's not as easy as we think to discern [the intent of] like signals. 

Now Eric, you did some testing recently, and some very careful studies, and I think you have another reason why they're not as trusting yet of those signals as they might be.

ERIC: Yes, you're right, we've done three studies. Two of which are published, and one [on Twitter] that is coming out soon. But of the two that are published, one actually directly measured whether Google+ was affecting search rankings. We shared a bunch of links from Google+ profiles to pages that had no other links and no other visibility to Google on the web. Literally no Google Analytics code, no Google+ API code, nothing. The long and the short of it was that the test showed no real reason to believe that Google was using a shared link on a Google+ post as a ranking factor, which was pretty interesting.

And then on the Facebook study we did, we did it in a bit different way. What we did was we took 85 prominent profiles, and we checked 40 different posts spread out over a year for those profiles, to see whether or not they were getting indexed (the specific updates, I mean). They were not getting indexed as much as we thought. They were about 59% indexed.

But the reason I found this so significant was, if this was such a powerful and important signal to Google, and you have these 85 extremely prominent people, they would be indexing all of that content if they thought that was a good signal. 

And then we did another similar study recently with Twitter recently, which isn't published quite yet, but it actually shows very similar results, that the indexing is really kind of poor of those tweets.

MARK: A little spoiler alert there!

Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers:

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

"Researchers are starting to play around with social bots and cognitive attacks involving misinformation to see how far they can go in pulling the digital wool over Internet users’ eyes. "

"but other attempts are far more devious — like a seemingly disconnected group of people who all start talking about the same thing convincing you it’s “going viral.” In 2002, a bunch of Dartmouth scholars wrote a paper warning about the dangers of cognitive attacks in the Internet age. These attacks “change users’ behavior” by “manipulating their perception of reality.” “The Internet’s open nature makes it an ideal arena for dissemination of misinformation,” they wrote.

“Cognitive hacking is different from social engineering, where it’s just one person trying to deceive another person,” says Tim Hwang who recently organized a conference at Stanford on Cognitive Security and Artificial Intelligence. “This is spheres beyond that, trying to influence all their friends so they believe it too and often involves the use of artificial intelligence and social networks to widen the scope of what can be accomplished.”
Social media deception campaigns are growing more sophisticated.

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (, and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

"Yeah....I'ts me. Your Brother from another Mother. "I am America. I am the part you won't recognize. But get used to me. Black, confident, cocky, yet Humble; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me."  ;- )

"The practice of patience protects us from losing our composure. In doing that it enables us to exercise discernment, even in the heat of difficult situations. It gives us inner space. And within that space we gain a degree of self-control, which allows us to respond to situations in an appropriate and compassionate manner rather than being driven by our anger and irritation."
