SEO Ranking Factor #1 is Satisfaction

SEO Ranking Factor #1 is Satisfaction | SEO |

You know the numbers — Google uses over 200 ranking signals, updates its algorithm over 500 times a year, and employs thousands of engineers. We often get so caught up in the minutiae of the algorithm that we forget all this effort serves a single purpose:


Satisfy the user.


This isn't a touchy-feely post that says "Make great content and visitors will come" or "Delight your customers and magic will happen." It's not magic. Satisfaction is an actual ranking factor. Unlike other ranking factors, this one is hard to measure because it's based almost entirely on search engines' own internal data — something they don't share. We do know search engines both measure and reward satisfaction in very significant ways. In fact, I highly suspect satisfaction is one of Google's most important metrics used to judge the performance of its own search results.

For many marketers keeping up with SEO best practices is hard and confusing. But there are some things you can do that do work. In fact, Google look favorably upon them (hint: they are NOT dodgy link buying tactics)….
