Hello from Toronto and Happy Domaining SEO Sunday! This week I’ve got a top ten list that should inspire you to help improve your SEO and give you some great insight into what some of the top search engine marketers are doing.
You can read the full article compliments of Search Engine Land at the following link – Top 10 SEM Tips From SMX Advanced London 2010.
I’ve selected my two favorite tips that I wanted to include in this post. As always feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and experience!
Keyword research: Use Mozenda to find new opportunities. A superb presentation from Distilled’s Sam Crocker saw a host of new keyword research ideas and tools being discussed. Most notably, Sam suggested using Mozenda to scrape Google suggest results and download this into a spreadsheet of keywords. This tip was clearly a winner with the audience!
Google: Twitter links influence QDF and likely to impact organic search. Rand Fishkin shared experiences of seeing noticeable increases in “query deserves freshness” rankings, spotted following a link being retweeted several times on Twitter. He also spoke about Google and Microsoft’s data deals, which means that they have link information available from Twitter and Facebook and are likely to apply this to their algorithms for organic search in the future.
