Just beginning to tread the murky waters of social signals in relation to SEO rankings? It can seem like quite the daunting task considering the amount of confusion surrounding the topic. There seems to be a great deal of conflicting information put out by various respected sources, the SEO community, and even industry leaders themselves.
While search engine optimization experts and brand managers have debated the efficiency of links for some time and the future of link building has become questionable to some, word from Google's headquarters is that links still matter and will continue to matter in the future.
Google+, contrary to the beliefs of many, is still a force to be reckoned with in the social stratosphere. It's currently the third largest social platform in the world and sees over 540 million active monthly users. It's quite apparent that Google+ is a powerful player in the social media game.
Knowing that websites should be mobile-friendly is nothing new. With more people than ever accessing the Internet from smartphones and other mobile devices, brands that have wanted to be able to connect with the largest audience possible understood that a site should be mobile-friendly for the highest degree of success.

You know that you need to write excellent, engaging content to help bring in more clients and clicks, but did you know that accurate content is just as important, if not more so? It is incredibly vital to your site, and can help set you up as a great, trustworthy source within your industry. It is also going to be part of a new Google algorithm, and you need to make sure you are already creating accurate content before it hits. I am going to look at why you need it, as well as how you can achieve excellent, accurate content.
Curious what Google is looking for these days? It isn't rocket science to decipher. Speed, responsiveness, unique and relevant content; these are some of the criteria demanded by the search engine giant for anyone to win the ranking wars.
