Search engine optimization is the cornerstone of any online business’ success.
How long will a business stay relevant depends upon the amount of efforts it puts in its search engine optimization strategy. SEO trends come and go. The year 2013 was full of many SEO fads which came and went by.
But some of those trends and fads stayed. Many phrases like “Content is the king” etc became common terms all over the web. So today we are here at BloggingCage to give to you the top 5 SEO trends of 2014 in a joke format!
Top 5 SEO trend jokes for 2014: The Roundup.
1. Content is the king, and the sooner you learn and accept it, the better.
Content is the new buzzword everywhere. People have understood the basic fact that any amount of promotion can’t sell a bad product. So having a solid product, a solid content strategy and the right amount of promotion is crucial for the success of any online business.
2. Google plus helps you rank: But Authorship losing benefits.
Google removed authorship pictures from SERPS with its latest search engine update.
With the loss of pictorial promotion now there’s only one benefit of the Google Authorship and it is that it might still be a major factor in search engine rankings based on the Author rank of the person posting the content!
Still Google+ is very relevant when it comes to SEO because Google+ doesn’t require us to pay to receive targeted traffic!
The number of +1s and re-shares too matter a lot, and having a domain specific plus one button is also a good practice!
By domain specific +1 button I mean having a +1 button with URL set to your root domain!
3. Social media promotion:
Social media promotion never went out of fashion since the time it was created. It will continue to be a strong supporting signal for SEO even in 2014.
Hahhhahaaaa, yeah this one was for the social media spammers out there. Trying too hard to promote your post on social media can even lead to your domain being marked as unsafe and it might be blacklisted.
The mediums have diversified and we now have a lot of social media channels apart from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus. Websites like Pinterest, Reddit, Slashdot and many more can help you in bringing the much needed traffic boost you wanted for your site!
Social sharing also includes one more important aspect and that is sharing content made by others. The more we share other people’s content, the more are our chances of getting shared.
By mutual sharing we get to become a part of the online community and it also increases our exposure to our potential clients, future reader and subscribers.
It doesn't matter how awesome your content is, no one likes to promote people who are too proud and never giving credit to others for their hard work.
4. Guest blogging :
This post shows you that guest blogging is not dead yet, and it won’t be in the many days to come. ( If you didn't understand this line then scroll down and read the author bio!)
It is the one tactic that Google can’t and shouldn't fully try to quantify. Anyone can get published anywhere irrespective of their niche or writing style. So this is one of the major benefits of guest blogging.
The total social media support, back links and inbound visitors generated from the guest blogs make it an altogether profitable business.
5. Be fast and responsive:
SEO strategy in 2014 and beyond would require web pages to be fast and websites to be fully mobile responsive.
The strategy of having another mobile specific sub-domain is no longer relevant because a mobile sub-domain would require investment and a different seo strategy which runs parallel to the main domain.
The question arises is how fast is too fast?
By fast I mean that the instant the visitor lands on a website, the content should start loading. There should be no initial wait time and the whole process should finish within 2 seconds at max.
So, you thought we wouldn’t make fun of this trend. Watch the below image and laugh your heart out.
So, these were the top 5 seo trends jokes for 2014. We know you will be motivated to follow all of them word by word just because we posted it and ours is an authority website.
But trust us, the greatest SEO tip would be to go out and experiment. For sure the basics of SEO always remain the same but little experimentation would lead you to tricks and strategies that you thought would never be possible.
