4 Things that SEO Newbies Need to Know

4 Things that SEO Newbies Need to Know | Real SEO | Scoop.it
Every SEO has their area of expertise, but there are a few things that every SEO has to know.
Nick's insight:

I like that this article starts with "SEO is About User Experience". I have been saying that for over two years and it is nice to see the rest of the SEO community catching up. http://kercommunications.com/seo/user-experience-seo/


Unfortunately, the rest of the list is full of tired old things that really may not be as important as they used to be. Primary and secondary keywords with brand name at the end to make the "best" title? Really?! I think this may be a case of a writer who hasn't actually done the work lately and is repeating the same old things.

A Googler Says User Experience Is Not A Ranking Factor. That's Bullshit.

A Googler Says User Experience Is Not A Ranking Factor. That's Bullshit. | Real SEO | Scoop.it

A Google representative recently said that User Experience (UX) is not a ranking factor in Google search for desktop.

Content is, and should be, more important than how that content is actually presented, but to say that UX is not a factor is just wrong. It may not be just one specific ranking factor like the mobile update, but there is ample evidence to show that user experience matters...
