Although this very interesting article does seem to suggest that Google is attempting to kill SEO, I doubt if this is the end of Search Engine Optimisation as we know it!

There are a number of tried and proven SEO processes that are absolutely essential to achieving high search engine ranking results for your website and it would be difficult to imagine how these could be replaced by Google with alternative metrics that would enable them to determine the best websites to rank at the top of their search engine results page.

Read on and let me know what you think.

Is Googe Trying to Kill SEO? – Entrepreneur

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:22:18 GMT

Google is getting ready for a day in court, after a precedent-setting move by a Florida judge who denied the search engine giant’s motion to dismiss a case that could redefine how businesses engage in search engine optimization.

Google claims the plaintiff, e-ventures Worldwide LLC, engaged in “search engine manipulation” in order to cause its websites to be ranked higher in Google’s search results, stating that doing so was “bad behavior” that had to be deterred. Consequently, Google summarily de-indexed hundreds of the plaintiff’s websites without review or redress. The de-indexing was not based on algorithmic rules or webmaster guidelines, but rather, subjectively applied based on an anonymous tip from an unnamed third party.

The larger question here is chilling to virtually any small business which seeks a higher ranking, since Google’s own definition of search engine manipulation is vague and unpredictable. According to a brief filed by e-ventures’ attorney Alexis Arena at Flaster Greenberg PC, “Under Google’s definition, any website owner that attempts to cause its website to rank higher, in any manner, could be guilty of ‘pure spam’ and blocked from Google’s search results, without explanation or redress.”

What Is Search Engine Optimization / SEO

“It seemed as though I was personally targeted by Google,” said Jeev Trika, CEO of e-ventures Worldwide. “I would purchase a brand new domain and post nothing more than ‘bye bye world’ and within minutes, Google would de-index that domain too. So, Google’s argument that it was removing websites because they were violating Google webmaster guidelines falls flat. It was not about the website content, it was about targeting the website owner. The fact that Google targets people like this is not something that is consistent with their published policies, or what they tell the public.”

The brief notes that “search engine manipulation” includes anything done to a website to make it more visible on Google — and therefore virtually any business using generally accepted SEO Tactics (or any marketing tactics, for that matter) could be accused of manipulation, giving Google an excuse to de-list a website arbitrarily and outside of its algorithmic process, or as in the case of e-ventures Worldwide, de-index all of a website owner’s properties summarily. Should Google prevail, commonly used tactics such as title tags, incorporating keywords in headlines, incorporating legitimate backlinks, or even writing a daily blog would all be suspect. The outcome of this case could dramatically affect how virtually every business in the world does its online marketing.

Google is claiming First Amendment rights, stating that it is a publisher and free to publish or not publish anything it sees fit. How Google defines publishing is a bit of a stretch — they do publish a constantly evolving list of algorithmically-ranked links to websites, but that is by no means the same as operating as a media outlet which exercises editorial discretion. By journalistic definition, a SERP isn’t the same thing as an article — it’s just a mechanically ranked database. Google’s entire case however, rests on a First Amendment argument.

There is an important distinction being brought out in this case that goes far beyond the rights of e-ventures Worldwide, and calls into question the very nature of SEO and digital marketing. In previous cases, the courts have found that Google does indeed have First Amendment protection, but in those cases, the questions related to the rankings of a website, rather than deletion of websites simply because they were affiliated with a person or a company. Previous cases have held that, for example, if someone claims they should be ranked higher in the SERP than Google shows, Google prevails on First Amendment principles. “But, if Google bans 366 websites from all search results because they are affiliated with a particular person or company, then that is a very different thing than anything the courts have addressed previously,” said Alexis Arena, e-ventures Worldwide’s attorney.

SEO for startups in under 10 minutes

 

Google did not offer a response to our request for a comment, but they did provide a copy of their most recent June 1 legal filing, which attempted to reinforce their First Amendment claims and argue again for dismissal, again reinforcing its opinion that search engine results are “editorial opinions” and therefore qualify for First Amendment protection.

“Before Google refined their algorithm, getting on the first page of search results often could be achieved with tactics like keyword stuffing and artificial linking schemes, but those days are gone,” said Jeev Trika, CEO of e-ventures Worldwide. “Because of changes to Google’s algorithms, Internet entrepreneurs and Web publishers like myself now go the extra mile to provide websites and articles that are relevant, useful, and written to journalistic standards, and that has made the virtual world a better place.”

But, says Trika, Google has overstepped its bounds in invoking First Amendment rights to arbitrarily quash websites without review, on the basis of an unsubstantiated third party anonymous tip, and outside the realm of the Google algorithm. “Google’s actions deny businesses the basic right to market themselves in the digital economy,” said Trika. “Google in reality controls the market for Internet advertising, and must be held to a higher standard.”

Trika suggests “Google is not drawing a distinction between generally accepted search engine optimization techniques — such as simply creating and publishing outstanding articles and useful information — and what they refer to as search engine ‘manipulation.’ SEO is simply engaging in an ever-changing array of tactics to gain recognition — something businesses have done long before the Internet existed. By Google’s own definition of ‘manipulation,’ any company using header tags or incorporating keywords into headlines could be subject to arbitrary de-indexing.”

“Google’s business model isn’t, at the end of the day, providing a free search engine or publishing data, it’s selling advertisements,” said Trika. “The free search engine is merely a vehicle for doing so. Google has an economic reason to deny legitimate Web publishers who are promoting SEO placement in the SERPs so that they can sell more advertisements, but that type of anti-competitive action should not be protected by the First Amendment.”

Ever since the first advertisement appeared in the very first newspaper, companies have attempted to use marketing, advertising and public relations tactics to bring more attention to themselves. SEO is merely one more tool in this time-honored commercial tradition. The outcome of this case may well have a lasting effect on how companies move their marketing initiatives into the digital world.

10 SEO Questions to Ask Yourself in 2016

“Any good SEO will tell you that website performance is a huge factor in getting ranked. In fact, it pays to spend time and money to ensure your page load time is as fast as it can be.

Why is this important? User engagement. If your website loads too slowly, users will give up and go elsewhere. Your bounce rate will increase. And Google won’t rank you as highly in the SERPs if your performance stinks.

This is even more of an issue on mobile. The same page will typically load even slower on a smartphone or tablet than it will on a desktop. And users are more impatient, meaning that you are truly leaving traffic off the table by ignoring performance.

There are several ways to know if your website is too slow. You can have a speed test run, check Google Search Console for the average load time, or get an SEO professional to analyze it for you. I recommend the latter if you want to be sure you do it right and get professional assistance to fix anything they find.”

Achieving a high search engine ranking result for your website is crucial because search engines deliver the majority of traffic for websites that are ranked on the first few pages of the search results for any given keyword.

The following tips will help to improve the online visibility of your site.

Identify your target market

The first step for effective SEO is to determine your target market. This step is crucial and one that is often overlooked by website owners. Your target market will ultimately determine the relevant keywords you should use to optimise your website. Once you know exactly who you are targeting it will become much easier to identify the best performing search terms for your website.

Select the top performing keywords for your website

The second step is to carefully select the keywords you will use to optimise each page of your website. There are plenty of Keyword Research Tools out there that can help you to choose the best keywords for your site. Investing time in keyword research will help you to identify how many people are searching, using a search term that relates to the products or services you are offering on your website. This will help you to decide which search phrases are best suited for your SEO project. Make sure the keywords that you choose are ones that your target market will be searching for as well as ones that receive a good amount of search traffic and have moderate to low competition.

Ensure that the content of your website contains your targeted keywords

Step three is to take what you have learned about your audience and the keywords you have selected and use this information to correctly optimise your web pages. The most important aspect of the optimisation process is your website’s content. Make sure that you use a unique search term a few times each web page. However each keyword must be relevant to the topic of a specific page. It is also important to ensure that your content is readable and engaging and suitable for both search engines and your website visitors.

Write unique meta tags for each web page

Step four relates to the optimisation of your website’s meta tags. You should add the relevant keywords to your Title and Description tags. Try to use complete sentences and copy that is engaging and makes sense, not just a list of keywords. It is also important to use unique keywords that are specific to the page that the tag describes. Don’t use the same descriptions and keywords for every page, as search engines and visitors will think every page is the same. See our article on How To Write A Killer Title Tag for further information.

Use targeted keywords in your H1, H2 and Image Alt tags

Step five is to use your targeted keyword phrases in your alt image tags, H1 and H2 headings, and as links to other pages in your site or external websites.

Investing time to optimise your website is a major part of the online marketing process and if done correctly will make a significant difference to your search engine ranking results.
