Matt Cutts explains that the usual reason a site’s PageRank drops by 30-50% is because the site violates Google's quality guidelines by selling links that pass PageRank. And then frustrated readers of Matt's blog demand more SEO transparency and policy consistency.

Author Rank: A Step-by-Step Guide to Dominating Search with Content Marketing | SEO Daily Dose | Scoop.it

"Another way in which you as a content creator can dominate the search rankings with your content is to get more and more social shares.

 

A study by branded3 proved the connection between tweets to a particular URL and its ranking. Their results showed:

 

1) 50 tweets or less – Not sure how much, but URLs received benefit in rankings with 50 tweets or less, but those benefits declined after that.


2) 5,000 tweets – There’s a huge jump for a page that gets an average of 5,000 tweets. This would be content that goes viral on Mashable, BuzzFeed or Copyblogger.


3) 7,500 tweets – When a page gets 7,500 or more tweets, they can easily show up in the top five SERPs on Google".

How to Increase Your Search Rank Using Social Media

How to Increase Your Search Rank Using Social Media | SEO Daily Dose | Scoop.it

From The Article: "The rules of search have changed. In fact, they change on a daily basis. But never so dramatically has rank been uprooted since the explosion of social media. Social media sites, especially the power houses of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, have become backlink central for affecting organic search results.

 

Social media’s influence on driving business via the web is expected to surpass search engine optimization (SEO) in 2013, according to eMarketer. Web marketers and PR professionals must pay attention to how social media affects search, and ultimately how it can change the rules of online visibility and (online) brand engagement.

 

How can you use social media to increase your SEO rank and ensure that the rank and ensuing traffic will convert to web business"?

March of the Penguins, Which Led to a Friendly Panda, and Finally a Recovery | Search Engine Journal

March of the Penguins, Which Led to a Friendly Panda, and Finally a Recovery | Search Engine Journal | SEO Daily Dose | Scoop.it

One of the emails I received came from a startup in San Francisco that was clearly in trouble SEO-wise. They had three domains in use, and all three were hit during that nine day period. To make matters worse, all three were hit by Panda, and one was hit by both Panda and Penguin (or what I call Pandeguin). Since it’s important to understand which algorithm update hit your site, I analyzed both Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics data to confirm which algorithm update hit which domain. My analysis confirmed the Panda, Panda, and Pandeguin situation. Needless to say, we had a lot of work to do.
