How The 100 User Model Should Drive Your On-Page SEO

My latest column on +Search Engine Land talks about user experience is now a major driver of on-page SEO. One way to think about it is to imagine the experience that 100 different people to come to your site for a given search query.

While they all came in on one search term, their actual needs are many and varied. Some are ready to buy, some want ancillary information, some are researching, and some are going to want other related products.

Mastering how that works, and how it impacts your strategy is a significant SEO issue.

Thinking of migrating to https? Consider a small traffic drop in the beginning.
 
A Look at Moz's Search Traffic 2013-2015 and the Migration to HTTPS

Google recommends moving to HTTPS, but as you can see from our experience (and as we've seen from many others), that migration is similar to the traffic loss during a domain move. We lost ~11% of search traffic for ~3months, and are only now recovering. Long term, we hope this is a win for our SEO and for security, but if you're recommending a migration, be sure to tell your team/boss/client to expect a short-term loss.
