Crawl efficiency is really important for bigger sites since Googlebot will only crawl so many pages per sessions. Make sure they are crawling the right content. #crawling #googlebot
Google’s ‘GoogleBot’ crawler visits sites large and small across the globe daily and these site’s pages are read and scrutinized before being added into Google’s index. Some pages don’t get included for specific reasons such as a ‘noindex’ tag in the meta of the page or a canonical link pointing to a different page is …

Our day at the Disney Resort.  We went to both parks on the same day, which makes for a very long, but super fun day.  We got to go on the new Cars ride, Toy Story ride, and lots of other fun things.  Great all around day. #sals #disneyland

musical instrument for a 4 year old?  No fear in you do I sense, but much calamity in your future I think.

4 years ago today we were blessed with our 3rd child and 2nd son. He has grown into such a smart, fun, and strong kid. All he wanted on his special day was to go to Disneyland so here we are. #sals #disneyland #birthday

Where would you draft Justin Forsett this year after his good performance last year? #runningbacks #justinforsett #fantasyfootball #nfl #nflfantasy #ravens #fantasydraft
 
This Friday's free #fantasyfootball outlook is on #Ravens RB Justin Forsett.  Can he match last year's breakout campaign?
Forsett is coming off a breakout season that saw him finish 8th among RBs in fantasy points. But he turns 30 in October, is in a new offense and has a couple of young guys on his heels. What's it mean for his 2015 fantasy outlook?

Mind blown. Still digesting this fully. #googlebot #crawling #indexing #seotips2015 #javascript #ajax #rendering  
Think Google can't handle JavaScript? Think again. Contributor Adam Audette shares the results of a series of tests conducted by his colleagues at Merkle | RKG to examine how different JavaScript functions would be crawled and indexed by Google.

Although I reserve the right to amend my perspective, it still seems unwise to develop with only one search engine in mind. Even Google still suggests creating functional pages if JavaScript is disabled.

That said, clever use of JavaScript can likely yield some competitive advantages. This is an area of real opportunity once the basics are fulfilled.

2015 Google On-page SEO Ranking Factors List 

There's an interesting post at WebmasterWorld.com forum about 2015 on-page SEO ranking factors - what matters now and what doesn't that much. http://tgcafe.it/1FkfPWI

(thanks to +Barry Schwartz for digging it out: http://tgcafe.it/1dfIy5R)

There are quite a few comments on that thread, lots of opinions, as you can imagine.

I'd love to get yours as well.

I've put together the following list based on the original forum post plus the commentators' opinions.

Let me hear what you think, what you'd add, what you don't think matters that much in the comments.

On-page SEO Ranking Factors List

1. Never forget your bare-bone On-Page SEO - H1, H2 and title tags

2. Shorter title tags 

3. User experience metrics (page loading speed, navigation, ease of use, conversion, About and Contact pages, etc)

4. Original content that provides an answer, teaches, informs, is useful, delights 

5. Relevant images 

6. Quality site design - the looks per se are very subjective. It's more about up-to-date code: Html5, CSS 3, not JS heavy, no flash.

7. Descriptive meta description - it does not affect rankings, but it does affect your CTR.

8. Responsive/mobile friendly Design

9. Microdata

Microdata is a set of tags that allows you to add information to the code of your web pages that says, “Hey search engine, this information describes this specific movie, or place, or person, or video, or blog post“, encouraging them to better understand your content and, more importantly, display it in a useful, relevant way. (http://tgcafe.it/schema-markup)

10. Keywords - DO implement your focus keywords and semantic alternatives, but do it in a natural manner.

11. Supplementary content: create complementary content for your pages on other pages and vice versa.

12. Interlinking

I'd add:

13. Linking out to relevant resources

Deprecated On-page SEO Ranking Factors List

Keyword stuffing
Focus on longtail phrases 
Focus on ranking for specific keyword phrases 

Would love to hear from +Eric Enge +Mark Traphagen +Brian Jensen +AJ Kohn +Brian Dean +Rand Fishkin _ I am sure some names are escaping me at the moment..._

Amazing photos from production. #starwars
 
Star Wars behind the scenes photos. 

Darth Vader unmasked is my favourite of the bunch. Although Chewie getting his hair done is a close second.

#mystarwarsstory 1. The scene in Empire where Darth Vader tells Luke that he is his father.  It blew me away the first time I saw it and still give me chills because the exchange is so dramatic and life-changing for Luke.  Vader is in a lot of conflict over his feelings and it is in that moment that he starts to regain his humanity.

2. Empire Strikes Backs

3. Yoda - He is more than what he appears to be and is a classic example of not judging a book by its cover. Even Luke dismissed him and was looking for a big strong Jedi. His subtle style and logical approach is a lasting impression for me.

4. My dad took me when I was very young to see Empire in the movies. It was one of the first movies I remember seeing, even though I had been to others.  I was hook with the words "In a galaxy far, far, away."

5. To me Star Wars signals the struggle in all of us. We are all at conflict each day with ourselves and many other outside influences that we sometimes have control over, but other times we don't.  The balance between good and bad is always present and that is the underlying theme for Star Wars and most of their characters.  Most want to the right thing, but are often so involved in things that it clouds their vision and judgement, which is how evil or bad things are able to prevail. #starwars #starwarseveryday  
 
1. The scene in Episode 6, where Luke takes off his fathers mask to reveal his face. It brings an emotional factor because Anakin would rather die and see his sons face than live and only see a digital version of it.
2. My favorite movie in the whole series is The Empire Strikes Back.
3. My favorite character is Darth Vader because of how bad ass he is and also because of his final moments in his life.
4. I'm not too sure how I came across Star Wars, but I have known it for as long as I remember it.
5. Star Wars defines who I am, I grew up on it. It is not just a movie, it is a legacy. Known for decades, from 1977 to present day. #StarWars #MyStarWarsStory

Story
Tagline
I'm a passionate Sr. SEO Specialist, Webmaster, Fantasy Football Expert, and Fantasy Sports Writer that loves Star Wars, video games, food, and POP culture.
Introduction
Some call me the web dude because I've been on the Internet since the late 1980's.  The first time I got on the net was using a hard-line telephone that would use a large phone receiver that plugged into a modem box just like in 80's movie War Games. There were no browsers or interface and we would access sites by typing in simple DOS commands.

I started building my first website in 1995.  There were no programs to build websites.  There were only blank pages that needed code.  I still love the code side of the web and  love checking out source code for cool websites, new UI features that wow users, and other web interests that grab me. Since I've been working on web development, Internet strategies, and online marketing for 20 years, I've seen the fads come and go, the giants that looked mighty get knocked off, and every year or so another big player come along.  I'm pretty hard to impress on the web, but happy to be allow myself the opportunity.
 
Currently, I work with a great Fortune 500 company as a Sr SEO Specialist in their men's lifestyle division.  The collection of sites generate millions of visitors and are some of the most recognizable brands names in market. I also design and build websites privately for clients, blog for several sites and share my expertise in Social Media Marketing, website and UI design, fantasy sports, and a few other topics.
 
One of my most passionate hobbies is playing fantasy sports and have numerous championships to my name in both fantasy football and baseball. I write and maintain my own fantasy sports blog, as well as write for several fantasy football sites. I play in a dozen or more leagues per year, as well as commish around a half of dozen of them.  Some are for money, where others are for bragging rights and research. 
 
I enjoy playing sports like basketball, riding bikes, wrestling, and playing with my kids.  When I'm not on the computer or my iPhone, I'm usually at home hanging out with the family or working on one of the many projects I'm involved with.  My door is always open and I'm happy to help and share my knowledge.  Feel free to contact me and let's connect.
Bragging rights
I've got great 3 kids, a beautiful wife, new ride, and rocking through life!
