    What is the new face of SEO
    With Google releasing algo updates rapidly, I believe it must be pretty daunting to keep track of the changes and to learn and optimize our websites so we do not lose our SERPs.

    All good tips / opinions/ updates are welcome.

    Try to add words that exist in the body of your articles and can attract people's eyes, recently the search engine analyze the content of your page so be careful of this. Also your page titles are very important, they should be unique and meaningful.

    You need to know the latest from G - to the extent that is possible - and all of the basics of SEO as they have changed and developed, but still, you need to remember that you are writing content for actual people to read, and that still needs to be your first consideration.

    What is the new face of SEO

    Forget trying to keep up with SEO, well it's not new but unless you like playing around to suit what Google does or does not like on the day then you are much better to spend your time with other things. just make good titles, content and general SEO practices and spend the rest of your time making a good website and content. This approach will never go out of fashion, it has been a solid approach for at least the last decade and it still is.

    personally I don't even bother trying to please Google, I go from a complete different direction and take it from their own backdoor.

    Well, almost the same. The SEO of yesterday is the same in present and will stay same in future as long as you follow the webmaster guidelines of search engines i.e., Google, bing and yahoo.

    There is an old good saying "Don't write for search engines, write for people!"

    When you write articles your main goal should be to provide value to your site visitors. If people love your contents, they will share it, quote it and repeatedly visit your site. Then, search engines will keep looking for your pages to add them and put you on the top of SERPs.

    Why do you think Google updates its algorithms?

    In order to clean their SERPs from rubbish sites using bad SEO practices, and replace them with truly valuable sites.

    So, if you, Google and the visitors need value, why should you care about algorithm changes? Just worry about the quality of contents you are providing.

    That's all!

    Will that hold good for an e-commerce site. Say for example ebay / amazon How do we know how G indexes them. And what do we keep in mind while designing / creating an e-commerce site?. A recent article about one of G's recent algo updates mentioned that the update had affected ebay.

    Do you think that authors write for their publishers and journalists write for their advertisers. Then why in the hell would you write for Google?

    Actually, that's 100% true when it comes to at least some of magazines. For example, try to go through "Muscle & Fitness" from cover to cover: 2-page ads that look like articles and articles that are nothing but ads.

    Of course I'm not saying all mags are "4 less", but to some of them it's the only way they conduct their business, and they're not going belly-up.

    Again, if you provide value and something visitors or potential customers really want, Google will rank you higher. But, if you keep stuffing your pages with keywords hoping to get higher rank, your will go to the bottom.

    All the algorithm changes are aiming to provide value to the people who search Google. All you need to do is "To provide value"!

    If you provide useful content to users and follow google guidelines or updation, webiste will get good rank on search engine. Try to post unique content on your website and blog. Always create natural backlinks.

    The average person can detect when writers are writing specifically for SEO rankings. We're all looking for genuinely well written content on a well researched topic. Even better if the research has gone above & beyond & into hand-on experience that has wisdom to offer their readers. If you can nail that, well, then it doesn't matter so much what kind of re-arranging that Google does...people will still want to come back to your site & will share it with others. And THAT is what we're going for anyway, right?!
