A Simpler Approach to SEO

Feel overwhelmed by the complexities of SEO? In my latest article for +Moz, I've boiled it down to the essentials for you. This is not to say that SEO is "simple." Rather, my aim is to help you to focus on what really matters most.

Read it at https://moz.com/blog/the-two-part-seo-ranking-model-lets-make-seo-simple
It may be tempting to look for an easy answer when it comes to ranking, but both research and Google itself say links and content are the biggest factors involved. Would your SEO improve if you focused with greater effort on a simplified two-factor algorithm?

Ironman Breakfast with Google's Gary Illyes and Me at Pubcon Las Vegas

I'm excited to announce that +Pubcon has added a special keynote session they're calling the Ironman Breakfast.

I'll be hosting a live interview with Google's +Gary Illyes on the main keynote stage during breakfast on Wednesday.

If you've seen our Virtual Keynotes with Gary (stonet.co/virtualkeynotes) you know that these interviews always have fascinating insights (and the occasional revelation) that are not to be missed.

I'll be taking a deep dive with Gary into various SEO topics, the future of search, and even such dark mysteries as how to pronounce his last name!

Check it out at the link below, and if you haven't already, sign up to go to Pubcon Las Vegas to see this and lots of other very worthwhile digital marketing sessions.

My first of two chapters contributed to the newly revised +Search Engine Journal SEO Guide. In this one I show you what to do if you notice a sudden drop in your traffic from organic search.

Be watching for another chapter, co-written with +Mark Traphagen, about links and authority!
 
PANIC! You see a sudden traffic drop and you need to fix it fast. What do you do first? Where should you look to find the problem? What are the best ways to fix the problem?

Our founder and CEO, lead author of The Art of SEO, Eric Enge has the answers in this chapter from the forthcoming Search Engine Journal​ #SEO Guide.

Read and share it at https://www.searchenginejournal.com/what-to-do-when-things-go-wrong/167863/
Recovering from a Google penalty should be viewed as the first step. Then you can move past survival, and into a world where your traffic keeps growing.

In our latest Here's Why video I explain why you should be including content quality and user experience in your SEO thinking.

We may not call these "direct" ranking factors, but I think it's undeniable that they are having increasing effect on search success. Find out why at the link below.

(And also find out why I'll never buy shoes from +Mark Traphagen!)

Why Google’s Mobile Ranking Updates DO Matter!

Google has now rolled out two mobile ranking updates over the past year. How much effect have they really had? Even if you didn't see much change for your own site, should you still care?

In this Here's Why video, I explain what we found in our studies tracking both updates, and why these updates SHOULD matter to you!

Well, of course, Google uses clickthrough rate as a ranking factor, right?

I say "probably NOT!" Why? Find out in our latest #HeresWhyMonday  video!
 
Why CTR Is NOT a Direct Ranking Factor
Here's Why Video

Many SEOs assume that click behavior such as click-through rate (CTR) is used by Google as a ranking factor. So why does +Eric Enge insist that it is NOT a direct factor?
