[Infographic]  Evolving SEO tactics: longer posts, Google+ and the tilde | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

This is an infographic about current SEO thinking with tips and tools to help sites rank better on search engines.

 

Most people have a general idea of how to optimize their content for search engines. That search engine algorithms are proprietary and evolving inevitably causes different opinions on SEO. Of course there’s another school of thought that minimal keyword research and a green-light from a SEO plugin are enough to publish a piece.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 2, 2013 12:52 PM
Great comment MizWalidah. I wold modify one point. Instead of "continually optimizing your meta keywords and tags" I would find ways to ping in fresh content such as User Generated Content from reviews or comments. Once a website I've SEOed is inside of Google's algorithm changing meta values that matter (mostly the page's title) can HURT SEO. I change titles VERY VERY carefully since the first rule of SEO is DO NO DAMAGE. The QDF (Quality Deserves Freshness) movement post Panda and Penguin LOVES it when a page pings, so I love the 1% of visitors who are willing to comment, review or otherwise contribute User Generated Content.

I DON'T play with meta nearly as much as you imply since to do so can look SPAMMY and cause real harm. The most important idea is creating content other people want to share. This is why I love GAMES and CONTESTS especially for bands. High engagement content such as Contests and Games can help with SEO and they can help create a distinct brand all bands need. Appreciate your enthusiasm, but be careful about meta (especially title) changes. Marty

Trying to keep up with brands like Nike and Starbucks on Instagram? Consider this: There are four-legged friends who are way more influential than you.
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): Marketo’s Ellen Gomes explained: 

 There’s a reason why each year some of the top Super Bowl ads feature animals, and that’s because it works to engage audiences. This year, some of the top ads included animals, for example, the Heinz’s wiener dog stampede, the already infamous Mountain Dew’s puppymonkeybaby, dogs trying to get Doritos, and a marmot for Marmot. One reason these ads do well is because of testing—brands making a big investment want to make sure they create an ad that resonates. Another reason that they come out on top is that having animals in your advertising makes it stickier and more memorable. In fact, Adweek just did a field poll on whether commercials featuring animals or celebrities were more liked and memorable. The overwhelming consensus? Animals.

Agree with this infographic about what makes people loyal to brands. Brands are shorthand for contemporary life. We bundle so much meaning into brands such as Nike, Apple and REI that it would be hard to imagine modern life without these shortcuts. 

Faith Popcorn famously said people don't BUY brands they JOIN them and these "loyalty" reasons can help form a brand people want to join.
