SEO Ranking Factors Visualized: The Top 200 Criteria Used by Google To Rank Web Sites | Internet Marketing Strategy 2.0 |
SEO itself has always been somewhat of a barrier to entry for online success. In other words, for a new person it's so complex that it takes a long time to
Robin Good's insight:

If you have long been wondering which are the most important factors that affect how your web site is ranked inside Google search results (SERPs), here is a very comprehensive infographic by Search Engine Journal which visually summarizes the top 200 variables that likely affect your Google ranking.

The factors are generally derived by referring to Google official guidelines and announcements and even more on pragmatical analysis, testing and voting by SEO experts, like in the case of SEOMoz famous "Ranking Factors" online resource.

In this case the author of the infographic (Brian Dean) unfortunately does not disclose how and from where he has pulled together the information he has so nicely curated into this infographic.

The over 200 factors presented are aptly grouped in ten areas:

  1. Domain Factors
  2. Page-Level Factors
  3. Site-Level factors
  4. Backlink Factors
  5. User Interaction
  6. Social Signals
  7. Brand Signals
  8. On-site Webspam factors
  9. Off-pag Webspam factors
  10. Special Algo Rules

These factors have been changing quite significantly over the last two years and they are continuously being improved and refined, with old ones being gradually de-emphasized, and new ones being added and increasing in importance.

Useful reference. 7/10

SEO: Tweets Do Affect Rankings [Study]

SEO: Tweets Do Affect Rankings [Study] | Internet Marketing Strategy 2.0 |

From the original article: "In the biggest study of its kind, we have found that there is strong correlation between the amount of tweets about a URL, and its Google ranking.


Key Stats:

1) Study shows that URLs receive a significant boost in Google rankings when they are shared on Twitter


2) The effects of this boost seem to level out at around 50 tweets, and the subsequent benefit of gaining additional tweets is minimal until around 5,000 tweets


3) After 5,000 tweets the average ranking of URLs improves considerably
URLs receiving over 7,500 tweets almost always rank inside the top 5 results


4) Average rankings are heavily correlated to the number of tweets about each URL".


You better read it. 8/10
