Throughout the past 6 years, Google has become incredibly busy. We’ve had a range of new updates, and a handful of changes and features from its own search console have been removed. In short, it’s safe to say that Google is hard at work ensuring that the user has top priority and that black hat SEO technicians are knocked off their high horse. To stay in Google’s good books, here are 3 SEO tips we should all be following in 2017…
- Google has indicated the age of the mobiles and smartphones many times. First it was Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and recently there has been a preference to mobile friendly sites- it is time we get on the bandwagon with this one. However, it isn’t just about making your site mobile compatible. It must be designed to load faster and better. For example, say goodbye to auto playing videos and focus on displaying content first.
- 2017 will be the year of comebacks and long content is one of the first. Statistics have shown that people are actually taking time to read longer articles rather than shorter articles as the bounce rates of shorter blogs have increased. With this, we should be focusing on content rich sites.
- Don’t fret when we say keywords have lost a tiny little bit of importance. They are still there! While we tell you to focus on content a lot, keywords are still very important in the world of SEO. With this, we mean there is no need to stuff keywords into your content all the time, as this is actually a black hat technique- but a few will do. Plus, RankBrain, an algorithm that guesses keywords and picks up a site based on them, was introduced by Google and is expected to take effect in 2017. This means that even though your site may not contain the keyword, it may still be listed if it is relevant.
