What Is a Search Query? It’s Not As Simple As It Used To Be

We all know by now that the first step in SEO is keyword research — without a keyword to focus on, there’s no optimizing to be done. From the end-user’s perspective, what you call a keyword, s/he calls a ‘search query’ — it’s what s/he just typed into Google to try to get some information. [...]

Writing Content For the Modern Web: Overly-Focused Won’t Cut It

There’s a lot of struggle in the world of search engines to define ‘relevance’. How do you determine, if someone writes the word ‘fly’, whether they’re talking about insects, zippers, airplanes, baseballs, or being cool and/or sexy? Google is famous for their Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI), which has become a huge keyword in the content [...]

Google’s Recent Spat of “NoFollow” Orders Aren’t Really Surprising
