An SEO, I believe his name is Dido, asked John Mueller of Google in this morning's video hangout if Google is aware of a trick some sites are using to combat any negative impact from the August 1st medic update. John was unaware and confused by the strategy, saying he would only see a downside to removing a site's navigation in terms of how it would hurt the site's ranking in Google.The question came up 31 seconds into the video. He basically asked if Google was aware of this navigation removal trick some SEOs were using. It sounds to me that they are doing this to preserve PageRank and link weight on specific pages. In fact, he said the only way to navigate some of these sites is to click from page to page, one at a time, creating a horrible user experience. I never heard of this either - but it doesn't mean this is not floating around.John said he will investigate this if he would share more details but based on everything he knows, removing navigation, even if you have an XML … [Read more...] about Navigation Removal Trick Impacting Google Rankings Algorithm?

Google's John Mueller said in the recent webmaster hangout at the 11:55 mark that those who implement the method of disabling the browser back button will not benefit or be hurt in the Google search results. In short, manipulating the browser back button does not result in a Google penalty. Why? Because as Google said time and time again, bounce backs don't influence rankings in Google. John Mueller said the behavior of disabling a user's common navigation is not a good user experience for your web site visitor and it might annoy your visitors. So clearly John doesn't recommend such a practice but for search, it doesn't make a difference. Here is the video embed: Here is the transcript question: I’d love it if someone from Google can chime in about manipulating the browser back button.

Even though SEO is a synergy of different practices, not all of them are equally important for higher rankings. And, because SEO’s are normally pressed-for-time individuals, it’s essential for them to know what SEO tasks should be their priority. Speaking of on-page and off-page SEO (many SEO’s also consider keyword research a separate aspect), I’d like to say that, quite often, on-page SEO does not get the attention it should. This is because, in general, it takes less time than link building and often plays second fiddle to off-page SEO when an emergency rankings boost is required. However, there are certain on-page SEO factors, leveraging which can work miracles for your site, and it’s important to know how much impact each of them carries. So, let’s talk about these factors. Lay a Foundation for Higher Rankings Any construction work begins with laying a foundation for the future building. Likewise, on-page SEO begins with creating a certain … [Read more...] about On-Page SEO Factors: Which Ones Have the Most Impact on Rankings?
