This was an interesting graphic. I think that using these graphics made it easier to understand the comparison between the new and the old SEO (Search Engine Optimization). We have been learning about this in class recently, so I thought it was interesting to conduct further research.

How Do I Successfully Run SEO Tests On My Website?

How Do I Successfully Run SEO Tests On My Website? | The Social Touch | Scoop.it

Rand Fishkin is going to talk about running some SEO tests.

 

So it is the case that many of us in the SEO world, and in the web marketing world overall, love to run tests on our websites. Of course, there's great software, like Unbounce or Optimizely, if you want to run conversion-style tests, tests that kind of determine whether users perform better through conversion Funnel X or Funnel Y, or if Title X or Title Y convinces more people to buy.

 

But SEO tests are particularly insidiously challenging because there are so many components and variables that can go into a test.

Does Website Speed Affect Your Ranking? (infographic)

Does Website Speed Affect Your Ranking? (infographic) | The Social Touch | Scoop.it
Have you ever been to a slow site and it felt like it took hours to load? You look down at your computer clock and really only 30 seconds have gone by. That's just the user experience on a slow site- the real question is “Does your website speed effect your ranking?” Will your slightly slower site be penalized by Google and other search engines when you clients are even looking for you?In this easy to understand graphic, we see that 1 second makes all the difference in the world. And after just 6 short weeks of poor load times, your site can lose 75% of it’s traffic to that page.If you have a low ranking you might want to follow some of the Google Guidelines to pre-load your most popular pages to increase your site’s overall performance.

We often talk about Pinterest as THE social media platform to use to draw attention to your brand and traffic to your blog. But do you know that Instagram offers some very interesting opportunities too? 


Of course, the links you leave next to your pictures and in comments are not clickable. However, there are ways to overcome that limitation.


Jenn Herman wrote a really good article for Curatti. All the tips are simple and actionable.


I have seen Jenn in action on Instagram, so she is obviously sharing from experience.

It's s a myth to think you can and should be manipulating search engines with back links, page keyword stuffing, duplicate content development, etc. It's old school and much of these processes are no longer relevant to Google.

 

Today, SEO rankings are a primarily combination of creating and sharing great content, building a web site that works for your visitor, coupled with basic on page SEO best practices we've outlined below.

I have preached this forever. Engagement is the answer. Not SEO trickery.

Cate Ferguson's curator insight, July 23, 11:40 PM

Old 'set and forget - one time only' SEO is long gone. 

The replacement SEO of Content Creation with careful optimisation built in is still relevant BUT much more sophisticated than it was.  This is also a tactic that works but needs something more to be as effective as it was.

 

Enter Social.  Sharing and Engagement are the new keys to effective SEO when combined with good quality, optimised content.  Social engagement is also a Tactic.

 

The element that brings all of this together is a Strategy - how to fit good website architecture to enhance and enable the best user experience (old SEO), excellent optimised content (the way forward SEO) and that vital elusive Social Engagement tactic (the icing on the cake of modern SEO) into a Strategy that will give you want you want.  Connecting these important tactics to the right outcomes to reach the targets, and goals that will bring you organisation what it needs from your digital presence is what a well designed strategy can bring.

 

No longer set and forget SEO but alive and responsive SEO  - amazing.
