SEO Trends for Ranking Factors


SEO-Trends-for-Ranking-Factors-700SEO is constantly changing. From the days when keyword stuffing was legal and, duplicate content encouraged, we’ve now moved to an age where user experience rules and things like unnatural links and spam comments will get you suspended and, possibly, even permanently banned from Google. Here are SEO trends that affect your website ranking.

Why SEO?

This shift means every online marketer must change too. If you want to be successful, focus on your customers. Think about the problems they face and the best possible solutions to these challenges. Consider their locations and how their specific problems can be solved in those locations. Think about their demographics and solutions that would best suit each demographic.

A college student, for example, will want a different type of shoes than older, retired seniors. Today’s SEO is about fully understanding these differences and optimizing your online presence to help each consumer find answers to their problems quickly and with the least effort.

If your target consumer prefers mobile (and, most of today’s consumers do), spend more time making your mobile experience flawless. If they prefer watching videos, prepare and share with them the best videos of your brand and products.

The infographic below summarizes these and many other SEO trends to help you optimize your content and marketing messages for maximum reach and engagement.

This year, using video for online marketing is taking the spotlight for several good reasons.

Consumer reach

Around 69% of people online prefer to learn about products or services through watching a quick video instead of reading blocks of text. Also, 76% would share a video on their social media networks even if it’s branded as long as they find it entertaining enough. This makes the viral effect possible.


As many as 93% of businesses that use videos as part of their campaigns report a higher user understanding of their products or services. As a result, 74% of users who watched explainer videos beforehand became paying consumers. That’s a pretty impressive conversion rate.

Videos are popular not only because they’re quicker to digest, but also because they engage different senses all at once. From a marketing perspective, this advantage leads to better engagement.

Here’s an infographic that illustrates this point from Take1 Transcription
