Ranking for "Social Media Markup" - SEO Content Authority Test
Check this out... I actually wrote this post to test a theory about a recent algorithm change that effects what Google sees as authority content type pages. So the real purpose of this post was to see how quickly I could get the article to rank for "social media markup" solely based on content structure, basic HTML page structure and external linking from the article. I didn't even use article markup. No back link building, quite the opposite. And no marketing at all. All I did was fetch and render it in Google Webmaster Tools to get it crawled quickly. That's it.

The results are:

- It took less than 4 days to get to position #3 in search.

More incredibly, it shows up for a whole bunch of related queries too. All in the top 3 to 4 positions.

It seems to bounce betwween position 3 and 5 the last few days. And is holding strong for about 5 months now I believe.

If I SEOd the page I'm pretty sure it would rank #1 within a week.

The implications of this is HUGE if you know how to use it to its potential.

About social media markup and the actual article:
The article outlines some simple markup to help your business take up landscape in search results.

More importantly, check out the structure of the page as in the usage of html elements like header tags and supporting content. It appears similar to a Word document visually and in the code. And also check out how I displayed the links as the full urls. As well as using:
- bullet points or in html, <li>'s
- strategically placed images.
- reference links at the end (with full urls)
- plenty of supporting content for each sub heading or <h2>'s in this case.

This is really coming into play strongly recently. Direct positive impact on page load speed for sites that use CDNs.
This is a significant change that will really speed things up for sites that use CDNs (in particular with Akamai).  I love where this is going!  If your site handles consumers across the U.S. or internationally, I highly recommend looking into a CDN if you want to maximize site speed. 

I'm looking for a tool that can evaluate internal linking structure. Unfortunately Moz, screaming frog, and most other popular tools do not go deep enough. It has to show link depth and be able to crawl very very large sites. And have all the normal setting options like following redirects or canonicals, ignoring robots.txt, exclude options, etc...

If anybody knows a tool like this please share.
