Google’s Off Page Ranking Factors: Fact Or Myth? - infographic

If you’re in a competitive industry and trying to achieve SEO success simply optimising your website for a set of keywords may not be enough. Google’s algorithms also use a number of off page factors to decide which sites should rank above others.

It has long been known that the number of relevant and authoritative domains linking to you are the major factor that boosts your websites external reputation, but there has been much conjecture about the effects of other external factors such as social signals and link building schemes.

What should you believe and what should you ignore?

Unfortunately +Google doesn’t disclose the full algorithm they use but they have made a number of statements on their own blog and through social media comments that have enabled the #SEO industry to form some kind of educated guess as to what helps and what doesn’t.

+Northcutt have collated multiple sources of data into one huge study and the guys at +Red Website Design have summarised their information in the infographic below.

In short, as #Google have said many times, create great content that people will naturally want to link to and avoid paid link schemes like the plague.

Google’s On Page Ranking Factors: Are They Fact Or Myth? - Infographic

If you’re a website owner one of your primary goals will be to optimise your site to rank higher on Google and increase organic traffic.

When it comes to optimising your website content and other on page factors it’s important to not only understand what can positively affect your rankings, but also what can harm them. 

On one hand, not optimising your site enough will mean Google won’t see you as relevant, whereas over optimisation will more than likely lead to Google marking your site down. For real search engine success you need to achieve a delicate balance. 

This isn’t easy when you consider there are a reported 200+ ranking factors built within Google’s algorithms. The big question is which of those do we have cast iron evidence to support, and which are outright myths?

+Northcutt have recently published some detailed findings which argue the case for each. They’ve labelled them on a sliding scale with those that have been confirmed by Google as having an effect ranked as “Concrete” and those with no evidence at all ranked as “Myth”.

You can either take a read of the extensive work directly on the Northcutt website here, or you can view an easier to follow summary in this infographic from +Red Website Design.

Very useful and an essential resource. The Meta Description is still important as it encourages people to click on the link when doing a search.

4 Types Of Interactive Content To Level Up Your Content Marketing Campaign

Over the past few years, the content marketing industry has undergone some pretty significant changes. Once focused on creating keyword-rich static site content, the industry is now built on fresh, dynamic content that’s timely and relevant. Along with this shift has come an increased emphasis on visual content. And while most businesses understand the power of infographics and video, some are still missing one key piece: interactive content.

Why Brands Should Embrace Instagram Instead of Facebook - infographic

Did you know that nearly 7 in 10 Instagram users engage with brands regularly. And that Instagram has 58x more engagement per follower than Facebook.

Facebook marketing is overcrowded, but plenty of room left on the Instagram boat. It is not too late to get an early adopter advantage on Instagram.

This infographic from +selfstartr sheds some light on why Instagram is a ripe opportunity for brands.

Study: 23% Of Internet Users Used GooglePlus In Past Month - infographic

Nearly 1 in 4 of web users (aged 16 - 64) have used Google+ within the past month, according to new research from +GlobalWebIndex.

GWI also found that by region, G+'s usage rates peak at 32 percent in Latin America and 29 percent in MENA, with North America notably behind at just 16 percent.

GWI said in introducing its data:

"Despite having stripped back some of its core features recently, 1 in 4 internet users still use the service each month (rising higher in some fast-growth markets). And although some people have accounts because they were required to create them in order to use other services, it’s clear that +Google+ still boasts a loyal following.

In a social networking world dominated by #Facebook, it’s worth noting that the typical internet user is now active on around 2.8 different networks. And for a decent percentage of online adults, #Google+ is one of those networks."

5 Tips To Become The Innovator Of Your Industry

Regardless of what type of industry you're in, more than likely, you've already noticed the advancing competition. Although more and more businesses are trying to innovate and expand their customer base, there are things you can do to stand out from the crowd and establish you and your business as an industry leader.

1. Incorporate Innovate Products Into Your Business Plan

Do market research and see what products people are looking for in your industry.
It's important to strive to be a leader in your field rather than to be the one following the crowd. If you're a travel agent, perhaps you can offer personalized services or tours when customers reach their destination. Anything that adds extra value, meets the customers' needs in a unique way, and puts your business ahead of the competition can be an excellent strategy to position your company as a trusted leader in your industry.

Of course, it's not just great, cutting edge products that you need to offer; you also need to be providing your customers with exceptional content that is at the forefront of your industry. As a leader, your innovative content will be the buzz in your industry, setting you up as the expert in your field. If you want to make a difference, your content and products need to be at the cutting edge of what consumers are looking for.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram or Pinterest? Which Social Media Sites Should Your Company Be On - infographic

“A hotel should be on #Instagram, but a bank doesn’t necessarily need to be. How should a company decide which social media sites it can benefit from, and which are a waste of time?

Figuring out which #socialmedia networks deserve your brand's time and energy can be tough, especially since it seems like a new network arrives every month. There are many options, and social media accounts are often started without much forethought to who will run them or what a brand wants to say. Most importantly, you need to ensure you're reaching the best audience for your brand and using resources wisely.”

Here's an #infographic from +Salesforce delineating which social media sites should your business be on.
