search engine optimization
I have, of late, been putting out posts that take us down to the very fundamentals of who we are and what we do. I know, you know that I know you need a “three steps that help me do this” content because you’re busy, are juggling things and really, if you give me your trust (which I value) you want me to tell you to do three, four, five (a number, anyhow) of actionable things that will deliver what you want.
SEO Help: 20 Practical Steps to power your content creation, marketing and branding in the new AI world of Google search.
The digital space is now pervasive, noisy and fragmented. Being noticed by those who should be your customers has become really hard.
Search is a constantly changing activity. Yet its primary focus is always the same: How to serve content to online searchers that is accurate and relevant. That is also the ‘secret’ to success in search. If the content you have created can be indexed well enough to accurately gauge its relevance then its chances to be seen by those who are looking for it are really good. If the content itself is also considered to somehow be “better” than similar content, then its chances of being seen rise exponentially.
Great content that is accurate and relevant enjoys a higher visibility in search. Just how to make sure that the content you create is considered “better” and it is both accurate and relevant in terms of your branding is exactly what this book is about.
The very first edition of “SEO Help” came out in 2010. Since that time, in three updated iterations “SEO Help” has won Book Authority’s “Best SEO Book of All Time” award and it has become a search engine optimization classic that’s helped countless webmasters understand what they need to do in order to increase the online success of their business.
This edition is no different. While it is true that search and search behavior are changing rapidly in response to technological innovation the fundamentals that drive an online surfer to use a search engine to look for something haven’t changed. While it is also true that search technology has changed drastically since 2010 the fundamentals that make a search engine deliver a particular result in response to a search query have also remained steadfast.
SEO Help: 20 Practical Steps to power your content creation, marketing and branding in the new AI world of Google Search is a detailed guide to those fundamentals. It tells you what to do, when and how in order to make sure that every item of content you create, whether that is text, video, podcast or graphic; works in your favor.
