Google+ for Every SEO Strategy

Is Google Forcing Marketers to have to use Google+ with in Marketing and SEO Strategies

Is Google really forcing Marketers to create a Google+ Strategy for SEO? From what we are seeing here at Nine0Media, Yes they are! Rand Fishkin of SEOMoz also demonstrates a few good points that would lead us to think, the big G “Google” is forcing Marketers and SEO strategists into creating, and consistently posting to a Google+ Account or Page. One great example that Rand provides is the search results provided when you search his name (Rand Fishkin), directly under his Name is his Google+ Account Link as well as his most recent Google+ Posts. This is a VERY interesting Video provided by SEOMoz and if you are in Marketing or SEO, this is a MUST SEE!

Google Knowledge Graph and the Importance of Social Signals

Here we go again! Google’s one-and-only Matt Cutts has made some socking announcements at the SES Conference in San Francisco recently. The fact of the matter is, if you thought you have seen the worst of Penguin Updates (Penguin 3.9), get ready for a new roll of updates! Matt quotes, “the hotly awaited Penguin refresh is due out imminently!”. So what will it be this time Big G? Will we see a seismic shake down of “Low Quality Content Sites”, or will we awake to a massive PR drop? Will this be Penguin 4.0, or will the Google Knowledge Graph play a factor in these updates?

Another question buzzing around the SEO world is the Focus on Social Signals? Since we all know that Google has announced the recognition and relevancy of Social Signals, will we see the Big G make a move from a search engine to diverse content provider? When Matt Cutts was asked, “what does the Knowledge Graph do?”, the reply was, ” It allows users to run searches for people, places, or things that Google has stored in its database. This could range from heavenly bodies to far off vacation spots, historical events to upcoming movies, and everything in between”.

What really confuses me about the Social Signals and the implementation of the Google Knowledge Graph, is that if Google intends to expand, redefine and provide deeper content for your searches, and Google has admitted the relevancy of Social Signals, then are they almost forcing us to Google+?

Is Google forcing users away from the “Organic Results” and solely focusing the user on “Suggested Results”? IF that is the case, then how will Google pull the sugested results? Not from Facebook, Google is blocked from accessing Facebook’s internal database and can not crawl Facebook Pages. Nor can Google crawl the Pages of Twitter due to Twitter is a private service and can cancel a user account at any time. What other Social Media source is left, oh that’s right, there is always Google+………..

So what will we see in the next few weeks? Will Social Signals play a huge impact on the awaited update, or will will the Google blow us away with something totally new?

Google, Panda 1.1 Update

Google Panda 1.0-1.1, The Four Letter Word – Link!

Well, where do I start. For now, I’m going to just layout a Time Line of what I am seeing and what impacts I am dealing with. Please feel free to jump in and correct me if i”m wrong. I am only documenting what I am seeing

Google started to stir up the waters on March 23rd 2012 with the release of Panda 3.4, at that point the impact was minimal but it was apparent the Google was beginning the “Web-Spam” Clean up process. Then there was the March-50 Pack release on April 3rd 2012 that explained the changes to the anchor-text scoring. April 19th 2012 brought the release of Panda 3.5. update. The immediate consensus was that the impact was again minimal, but if you were purchasing (Bulk) Links at this point you would start to see your Page Ranking start to freeze and possibly drop a few positions. Then came Penguin.

After a month of buzz about a Google clean up and a Web-Spam update, if officially came. The roll out was nicknamed “Penguin” was officially here. The update impacted 3.1% of the English search queries as well as penalized sites for “keyword stuffing”.

After the Panda “bomb” had dropped and the dust stared to settle, the friendly giant Google rolled out another Panda update, Panda 3.6. The impact from Panda 3.6 was a bit unclear with sites seeing effects from Penguin still. On May 4th, Google then published the facts and details about the April updates, April-52.

On May 16th we were introduced to the “Knowledge Graph“. The Knowledge Graph roll out officially began and will introduce a SERP-integrated display. The Knowledge Graph will help organize and specifically define a search query weeding out the Web-Spam that Google has now officially began to label.

Finally on May 25 2012 we are starting to realize that “Penguin” is an official algorithm update a lot like Panda with the release of Penguin 1.1.

So whats next. For now, keep it White Hat folks. “Old-School” SEO, content is King and Link Exchanges are Gray-Hat but accepted, purchasing Links is an OFFICIAL NO-NO! No more Page 1 Google risers over night. Its time to get down to the basics and clean up your sites folks. Google is looking for Categories and Structure. Get your Page Titles cleaned up, clean up the Keyword stuffing in your descriptions and use supporting keywords. Don’t just focus on one Main Keyword, look for Long-tail and Geo-Targeted keywords. There is always another path to walk down, just need to find it!

Ill be back soon, can’t wait to see what next week will bring!
