Feature: NJ SEO’s Matt Anton on Keeping Up with SEO Trends

SEO or “Search Engine Optimization” has never been so difficult a puzzle to figure out as it is today. There are so many ranking factors to take into consideration (it’s said to be 200, but Moz debunked it.) If the figure itself isn’t overwhelming, try this: None of those factors are publicly announced, for some obvious reasons.

The ranking based on the importance of those factors are largely unknown – only a few experts attempt to decipher the ranking factors by observing the available analytics data and the impact on SEO tweaks made. Those are some of the things that make SEO challenging today more than ever before.

The challenges usually come in the form of major Google Search algorithm changes. Those can be official (confirmed by Google) or not (changes felt, but no official releases.) Every time the algorithm changes, the world scrambling to adopt the best practices – including removing everything that negatively impacts the ranking.

It’s interesting to know that Google in 2017 has moved from naming its SEO algorithm updates after cutesy animals like hummingbirds, penguins, pandas and possums, to putting more of a human face on their brand with the recent “Fred” update in March that they still have yet to address publicly.

Aside from the quirky names, Google SEO remains the same: Many deem that it’s dead, but in reality, it’s alive and well – and still, a BIG deal in helping your website found easier on the web. The challenges come when you try to ‘detect’ what would work – and not.

Let’s get started with some SEO Fast Facts (source):

  • 93 percent of all online experiences start with a search engine.
  • 91 percent of Internet users are using search engines to find the products and information they’re looking for.
  • Mobile Internet use overtook desktops in 2016.
  • The adult user will spend up to 5.6 hours a day connected to the Internet using a combination of technology devices.
  • Some 1.2 trillion searches are performed monthly on Google alone!

There are a lot of burning questions out there right now about SEO and how to rank that are on all webmaster’s minds. Current trends including the creation and maintenance of Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP); concerns about whether citations are truly necessary for local SEOers; figuring out how to optimize for voice search; and the ongoing confusion about whether “HTTPS” is really going to usurp “HTTP” in the search engine rankings.
