User-Experience Key Factor for Winning SEO Strategy in 2017

We have heard that user-experience is been the most vital part of every successful SEO campaign but many SEO's don't always pay serious attention to it, but this time you have to focus on user-experience either it's related to your mobile website or main navigation or website speed. Many of us agree that Google has put significant efforts to change the SEO game in last 5 years and most of its algorithm changes was related to user-experience including hummingbird, pigeon, mobile-geddon, Amplified mobile pages (AMP), website security and latest "Machine Learning" however it is under process and Google has not started its campaign to convert your structure to comply with this beast. All these algorithm changes are made to enhance user's experience on Google and off-course on the web, most do agree! 

So what's the game now?

 

That's the question you got in your mind now? Ahn alright, I will explain.

 

Design

 

A great design consists of three things "Responsive, Intuitive and Inviting". Again it's for user and bots both not for search engine only. 

If you notice all big names don't change their web design and structure but keep enhancing their process to make it more useful and easier for the user's to interact. It's because they invested a lot to identify what work best for them and for the users and not want to lose their users by anyway.
 

Content Creation and Readability

Creating SEO optimized, keyword rich content has been a practice for most of the SEO's off-course it helps you increase your page's relevance and can provide you boost in rankings but again what happens if you achieved higher rankings but see high "bounce rate" on those pages? How will you translate that then? 

 

Oh Man, I forgot to create content according to my user's interest.

And you will notice due to that you are losing ranks on many other pages as well due to high bounce created by 1 particular page that contributed high chunk in average bounce rate of your website. 

So a good design and great content that is written according to your audience's interest help you maintain your bounce rate and other important metrics that google accounts in ranking a web page.

Off-course only this doesn't explain the whole user-experience there is the lot more to improve a website's UX and SEO. 

 

Performance

 

Website performance is another important part of user experience and SEO, higher page load time kills all your efforts like a study conducted by Google says a user will most likely exit a web page if it doesn't respond it 8 seconds. 

Optimizing performance is very very important for any website because Google is not the only one here to decide but it directly involves a user to take the decision. Make sure, your website loads faster by eliminating any render-blocking scripts, optimizing your images and HTML code. 

 

Key Metrics to monitor

IIt takes a long time to revisit on your website's content strategy and optimizing performance to connect UX with your SEO Strategy. Monitoring the user behavior is the next step to make sure it is working for you or not. Most important factors to measure the performance of your user experience and SEO: 

 

  • Bounce rate
  • Avg page/ session
  • Time on site
  • Goal/e-commerce conversion rate
  • Returning visitors

 

Let's wait for 15 days or so to compare the previous date with the new one to see the difference, remember you must create customized reports to compare performance by devices not you have to work separately for mobile and desktop site. 
 

Conclusion of this whole story is

"SEO should live within and be a part of the user-experience"

 

I welcome and appreciate any comments, suggestions, additions and queries 🙂

Is Your Website Mobile Friendly? SEO 2016

The growth of mobile phones has become undeniable. The Google mobile-friendly algorithm update of April 2015 set off a firestorm of activity as sites struggled at the last minute to ensure that their pages were compatible with mobile.

Due to the skyrocketing growth in mobile, google emphasized webmasters to have mobile compatible websites in 2015 and we witnessed website owners struggled at the last moment to ensure that their website pages were mobile compatible and responsive to any kind of mobile device. Due to this reason almost 5 million websites adopted mobile compatibility, as I explained earlier in my last article.

According to a marketing company, hubspot.com, an average of  12 billion google searches are conducted each month in the United states. This indicates that SEO will be more important than any other marketing channel to get targeted traffic, gain more visibility and develop brand reputation that every business needs to succeed. There is no point spending on content such as creative infographics if it is not visible to the audience when they search something related to your business.

In the past 2 years, after knowing that more than 50% people search local businesses on their smartphones and more than 65% of those searches coverts to a purchase, Marketers realized the value of Mobile SEO and adopted mobile responsive websites for better search visibility.

Google has asked webmasters to configure the website for AMP (accelerated mobile pages) AMP will be another ranking signal in 2016 or in early 2017, It will also benefit webmaster in saving their bandwidth. Google has also announced that they are going to be boosting the effects of the mobile-friendly algorithm they launched back on April 21, 2015 named Mobilegeddon.

Google said the update will roll out in “beginning in May,” and it “increases the effect of the [mobile-friendly] ranking signal.”

 

Tip: If your website is already mobile compatible then you just need to monitor how your visitors behave with your website content and what parts are causing them exit.

How can your website reach Page 1 on Google in 2014 – SEO CONSULTANT

In the year 2013 we noticed rise of search marketing trend in Pakistan. Google announced ever big algorithm updates in 2013 such as Penguin and Hummingbird. And Now we are entered 2014 with lot of new updates and changes in SEO Trends based on the different developments within the industry. We witnessed many Online Business failures due to Google’s new algorithm updates and Bad or we call it Black Hat SEO Techniques. I heard many guys shouting “we were not involved in black hat SEO techniques” May be they are right. I personally analysed few websites that gone down in 2013 just to check what their SEO guys doing with the website. I figured that several guys we just following old spammy ways to get ranking in Google and many were not involved in any black hat SEO Techniques but they were aggressively using few tactics such as forum posting and Blog comments. That’s why they got hit by Penguin update.

However we are now entered in a new era of Search Marketing! I wrote in my previous post that we need to redesign our strategies for 2014 But what they would be? I am not an authority to say a final SEO & Digital Marketing Strategy but I can share what I am planning to maintain my Rankings and to beat other competitors in Google.

SEO-2014

Everyone is a witness of emergence of Social media platforms and their popularity such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and Linkedin. Google has also indicated that websites that keep Good Social Media Presence and Popularity will be on their priority.

Authors will get extra respect from Google, in 2012 Google announced Google Authorship Markup. Honestly Google’s Authorship verification program was the great move by Google Even they enforced you to use their Ghost house 😛 (Google+, Google’s Social Network). Basically they had to choose authorship verification process just to reduce duplicate content. Google rewards verified authors by inserting additional images and links to Search engine results for their previous work. Off-course authors get Higher Click-through rate than ever because of three major factors: Placement, Trustworthiness and Visibility.

Content is King a famous quotation among Search Marketers, Content marketing doesn’t only involved on Search market but It is most valued part in Digital marketing and other channel of marketing as well. Content will remain kind in 2014 for sure but You have to change the way of marketing Only Articles, Blog Posts and Press will not help you in getting Top Rankings in Google. There are many more ways to spread your words! You just need to find best platform to know your audience otherwise you will waste your content.
