GoogleMaxSEO.com Founder Alex Hudson Gives 3 tips On How Business Owners Can Get Their Website On Google 1st Page Results
Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/10/2015 --GoogleMaxSEO.com Alex Hudson: Here are 3 of the best SEO Tips
Google's Panda 4.2 algorithm rollout, which began over the weekend, continues Google's commitment to rewarding high-quality, user-focused content with higher rankings.
Here are three easy tips for optimizing your website for better results:
1. Great Content.
Many PR pros got used to writing short content because press release services provided a surcharge if copy ran over 400 words. Google now scans short content and assumes it doesn't contain much useful information. The result is that shorter content doesn't rank as well.
It's now better to "elaborate" says Chief Strategist Alex Hudson, citing a favorite football phrase. "Go ahead and write 600 to 800 words—whether for a press release, blog post or summary of a white paper behind a paywall."
Google will penalize you for keyword stuffing, which is using the same search term repeatedly in copy. It rewards what has always been a good writing practice: the use of synonyms.
"If business owners are going to use one word or phrase in the first sentence, use a variation in the second sentence or graph," Hudson says. "Google understands what synonyms are and rewards them as good writing that's more likely to be of interest to readers. The result is a higher ranking."
3. YouTube Videos & Photos.
Business owners are missing a huge SEO opportunity if you aren't adding photos and videos to your content. Over 55 percent of Google search results now include videos and over 40 percent include photos, according to Hudson.
The most important element to optimize in photos is your caption. Make sure to plant your two- or three-word key phrase at the beginning of your caption copy, Hudson says. "The same rule applies to YouTube titles. They can only be 100 characters long, so make sure your key phrase is at least in the front third of your title."
Hudson's big SEO takeaway for PR pros is that your normal writing skills are more of an asset now than ever before, because Google rewards well-written content. So, stop writing for what you thought Google wanted—and start writing well again.
