g+As you probably know, I’m a strong believer in Google+ as a social network as well as the hypothesis that by using same you will increase your own/client’s online reputation, authority, trust…and yes serp rankings eventually too.

That’s not a unique thought, as there must be thousands of us SEO practitioners thinking along those lines around the globe and in the past couple of days, Google has added some new tools to help further that thesis.

Official announcements abound…but what I think might be more important is to think about the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ ideas first…but here’s some background and stats to begin.

casestudy-2THIS is what the web and SEO and testing is all about!

What do I mean by that you ask? Simply put, as you well know….the fact that we all “react” to Google and all search engines rather than being able to be “proactive” and get ahead of our hypothesis testing. We “think” that based on this idea or that feedback, that maybe if I try this – then my client’s SEO Campaign will get some extra link juice – and voila! My hypothesis was right….and my testing proved it!

Yeah, right. But in the real world there are so so so many factors that can affect your serps, that simply being able to separate them into manageable ‘chunks’ is sometimes the hardest part of all.

Lately, there’s been quite a bit of traffic in the SEO world concerning yes, the latest info on Google+ and the use of (or non-use) of that ubiquitous +1 button. It used to be true and still is to a large degree, that incoming back links (IBLs to the SEO world) were a great measure for the ranking of a site…but as we’re seeing things change via both Google+ and the sharing of links in social media, the world is yup, changing, eh!

So what to learn?

November 18, 2011 by · 4 Comments
Filed under: SEO 

About 17 months ago or so, it was my pleasure to “bump” into the owners of uncorkedventures.com – an online wine store from California that was a request to do a guest blog on our CanuckSEO site about their own SEO campaign – and I passed on that offer.

Why? Because as I explained it in a blog piece way back then, they were using the tactic of writing articles, and submitting them to various online directories (names not named to protect the innocent, eh!) and that while he’d climbed the serps somewhat via the do-follow links, he had no idea really on the efficacy nor efficiency of that tactic.
