As you may or may not know, Google’s ever-evolving ranking algorithms took another step forward in 2013. Finally it has the sophistication to identify and rank websites based on relevance and the quality of content. The days of keyword-driven copy are gone, not longer will Google look upon content written for specifically engines (rather than humans) to drive Search Engine Optimisation.
Google are, in effect, championing great content and the more of this you have the better ranked your site will become. Having relevant, engaging copy also means that people are more likely to spend time with your site, recommend it to others or share it on social media. Writing about and participating in what you love becomes a feedback loop of goodness. Everyone wins.
What content makes Google’s robots happy? Well, they’ve written a list of 23 key factors which is where it gets interesting. Looking through the Google’s guidelines for good content is fundamentally the same as any good marketing company or business strategist would recommend. Looking to find ways to trick a robot is no longer an option.
