205 SEO Hints: 10 At A Time Part 4

The more you do or sometimes the less you to the more you get! Welcome to Part 4.
Today’s list of 10 are more things you will have control over or not. And if you are like me, you love, control. More tecky stuff than I like but someone has to do it.

30. Keyword Word Order: An exact match of a searcher’s keyword in a page’s content will generally rank better than the same keywords or phrase in a different order. For example: consider a search for: “dog grooming methods”. A page optimized for the phrase “dog grooming methods” will rank better than a page optimized for “Methods for grooming a dog”. This is a good illustration of why keyword research is really, really important.

31. Outbound Link Quality: Many SEOs think that linking out to authority sites helps send trust signals to Google. I agree.

32. Outbound Link Theme: According to Moz, search engines may use the content of the pages you link to as a relevancy of your page. For example, if you have a page about dogs that links to automotive company, this just might tell Google that your page is about the dog in a car, not dogs themselves.

33. Grammar and Spelling: Proper grammar and spelling is always good but
 Cutts gave mixed thoughts back in 2011 on whether or not this was important. Personally it is not good to misuse and misspell things but it is more important to keep pushing your message and content out than to be worried about the grammar police.
34. Syndicated Content: Is the content original? If it’s scraped or copied from some other indexed page it won’t give you as high a ranking as original content or it could just end up in their Supplemental Index.

35. Helpful Supplementary Content: According to a now-public Google Rater Guidelines Document (good till they change it), helpful supplementary content is an indicator of a page’s quality (and therefore, Google ranking). Examples include things like currency converters, loan interest calculators and interactive recipes as long as the content fit your business and page content. Did a site for a company that stored boats in Chicago and we put on the bridge openings on the Chicago river. Do you think a pica/points conversion table would work for me?

36. Number of Outbound Links: Too many does demote your Page Rank. So don’t go stuffing in every link you can find even if it is pertinent to your business just because you can. Over saturation does not work.

37. Multimedia: Images, videos and other multimedia elements may act as a content quality signals if you tag.

38. Number of Internal Links Pointing to Page: The number of internal links to a page indicates its importance relative to other pages on the site. Some you can control some you cannot. Other times it’s nice to have friends who own a web site or two. But keep them relevant if you can.

39. Quality of Internal Links Pointing to Page: Internal links from pages on domain have a high page ranking  effect than pages with no or low ranking.

Larson Notes & Satire:  My page is #1 in google yahoo and bing is yours? So we got a little tacky today. You did not think it would be all easy and straight forward and just anyone could walk in a do it, did you? All I can say is lie with it, Fix and do what you can and it will work out, maybe.
