Is Everything you read and hear about SEO is wrong? New Google updates have changed the entire SEO process.
In the past all people ever talked about was basic SEO tactics like META Tags, Title, Description, Keywords, Link Building, and Keyword Anchor Text. All that is just a small tiny portion of what SEO really is. There are over 200 ranking factors that are important today on a basic level. Google is a huge brain that looks at so many other details about your website and business to decide where to rank or place you on search results. Here are a few areas that other “SEO Companies” never mention and overlook. When you hire a company they should be talking about some of these important factors, if not they are missed the SEO evolution train.
- Age of your domain name
- Registration Length (Does your domain expire soon?)
- Length Of Domain Name
- Extension (.com, .net?)
- Where do you host your domain?
- Shared Vs. Dedicated Hosting
- Image Sizes – Names & Alt Text
- Citation Flow (CF)
- Trust Flow (TF)
- NAP Listing Accuracy (Name, Address, Phone)
- Link Auditing / Negative SEO Factors
- Duplicate Content
- Physical Address Placement
- Outbound links
- Mobile-friendliness (Responsive?)
- Page-Load Times
- Domain Privacy Settings/Whois Data
These are just a few off the top of my head. The fact is no one knows what Google is really thinking but remember Google is the most technologically advanced company on the internet today and one of the largest and richest. Google’s entire goal is to provide the best experience for users and they have a massive amount of technology to check up on you and your SEO methods. Google knows more about your website, you, and your business than you might! They are not easy to trick and manipulate but that is almost what you have to try and do to gain an edge!
