Search engines consider hundreds of factors to determine search engine rankings. Many of these factors are related to a website's content, such as its text and titles, or to the authenticity of the site itself. Several years ago, Google announced yet another consideration regarding ranking; the speed with which site visitors can view the pages. Unfortunately, a significant amount of speculation remains regarding what constitutes sufficient speed, and just how much site speed affects rankings. Concern is heightened now that slow mobile sites can also be penalized. It is ultimately important to remember that a website performing poorly will lead to poor user experiences. Negative user experiences, therefore, warrant less recognition in search results than their more efficient counterparts.How Speed Affects Rankings Back-end performance and infrastructure are the most critical determining factors regarding site speed. Research has found a connection between ranking and speed; possibly … [Read more...] about Is Your Hosting Coasting? Here’s How Site Speed Affects SEO
My original title for this post was, “The Yahoo Site Explorer Patent Application,” because the post is about a new patent application from Yahoo that describes some of the information that they would like to receive from webmasters to make their efforts towards indexing the web easier. The majority of this post does describe what is found in that patent application, but as I was writing the post, I thought about how difficult Yahoo makes it for webmasters to find information about how they can use Yahoo. This includes how fragmented Yahoo’s FAQs and Help sections are, and how much effort a webmaster has to go through to learn about all of the different services that Yahoo offers that could be helpful to those site owners, from using Site Explorer, to participating in MyBlogLog, to many other tools. If you have suggestions for Yahoo on how they could improve how they present the services that they offer, what would those be? Yahoo’s Site Explorer If you own a … [Read more...] about Site Explorer is a First Step: How Could Yahoo be Friendlier to Site Owners?
During the regular online training sessions which I deliver to our customers, I inevitably get asked the same question. Actually this question comes in a few guises. What should I focus on more – citations or links? Are reviews an important factor for local ranking? How many citations should I build for my client? How do I know the best categories for my client to be listed in? But, they are all asking the same basic question: What do I need to focus on to improve my client’s rankings? Unfortunately, I don’t have a silver-bullet answer because there isn’t one. Every client, every location, every industry and every competitor set is different. And because of this, the right solution is also different. What I do say to them is that all successful and efficient SEO campaigns start with detailed Research and Benchmarking. Research and benchmarking gives you a clear understanding of each client’s SEO situation and how they compare to their competitors. Once … [Read more...] about How To Create Your Local SEO Roadmap Through Research, Benchmarking & Tracking
