My Top SEO Strategy… Revealed!
Have you ever been frustrated because search engine optimization is the most confusing thing in the world?
If that’s the case, hey, I totally get it.
If you read any SEO related stuff, then you’ve probably noticed that there’s an endless amount of conflicting information.
Here’s The Biggest SEO Tip That I’ve Ever Learned…
The single best SEO tip that I’ve ever learned, is something that’s more true today than it ever has been.
And that tip, is to create your content for humans.
Don’t write your content for robots, for search engine spiders, or for algorithms.
Humans come first!
Why Is This So Ridiculously Prudent, And Important?
Some bloggers are so worried about keyword placement, H tags and onsite optimization that they forget the very essence of SEO, which is the art and science of creating quality content.
Remember that Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines want one thing and one thing only; they want happy end users.
In order to produce happy end users, they need to deliver content that people actually find to be valuable, at the time they’re looking for it.
But, how do the big search engines determine what content is the best content to serve?
Well, most of the search engine algorithms are totally secret, but one thing’s for sure; more and more, search engines are looking at how long end users stay on your page, and they want to know how they interact with it.
If Your Content Is Totally Lame, Then Nobody Will Interact!
As a result, your “bounce rate” will be absolutely dismal.
The average time spent on your page will fall into the gutter.
So, the best SEO tip I can ever give, is to make sure that your content is helpful and designed for humans.
In other words, don’t focus too much about the million different SEO variables that can drive all of us mad.
Worry about creating quality content first and foremost.
And then, when people read your content, backlink to your content, and share your content on social media, then the search engines are more likely to say “Dude, this person’s content is actually being read, consumed, and shared on social media; let’s reward this content!”.
One More Parting Word Of Wisdom…
At this point I have about 294 blog posts indexed in Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
This might not seem like a huge number to you…
But for me… This is really exciting!
I’m trying my best to create more content on an ongoing basis, however, as you may be aware, I’m one of the laziest humans on the planet.
Just about the ONLY SEO I do in order to get these results, is by connecting my blog to Google Webmaster Tools, and Bing Webmaster Tools.
Once you create your accounts on these two services, you can then connect your XML map, so the engines know the moment you publish a new piece of content.
This, in addition to creating really cool content in the first place, is the perfect strategy to ranking your content in the major search engines.
My Minimalist Search Engine Optimization Theory…
Okay, I admit it.
I have a minimalist theory when it comes to search engine ranking.
However, my personal belief, is that simplicity often works the best.

Thank You So Much For Checking This Out!
Ever since I was a tiny kid learning how to put together super-simple-websites with HTML, there were those interested in how to get their websites listed in the search engines.
I’ve encountered a certain segment of writers and bloggers who are so focused and worried about writing for optimal search engine rankings to the point where they focus on nothing else.
It even goes to the point where the primary audience they’re worried about are the Search Engine Robots! I say that life is too short to write for robots (lol), and time is much better spent writing for our human readers.
The truth of the matter, is that a lot of SEO algorithms are totally private and closed source anyway. Meaning, that the way search engines rank websites is arguably secret! So why even bother trying to game the SEO game in the first place?
That being said, I honestly think that search engines want what every business wants, they want to offer an awesome service and experience delightedly happy end users.
In order for a search engine to realize that, they need to make sure that their search engine results are relevant and timely, and that they’re serving the best content possible.
That’s why, in my opinion, social signals, bounce rate, and the amount of time your end users spend on your website are so important.
Because the search engines want to deliver the most up to date, the most relevant, and the highest quality content possible.
(Remember that services such as Google Webmaster Tools, and Bing Webmaster Tools, both provide Google and Bing ample amounts of data about your website and how your end users interact with it, so the search engines definitely have access to this data if you use those tools, which I recommend by the way).
This all circles back around to the idea that writing quality content for humans first, and not robots, is the best way to create awesome content that search engines love.
So, long story short, figure out what your end users want, and try your best to give it to them in a way that’s entertaining, helpful, and/or epic. 🙂
Because always remember that humans read, interact with, and share your content! Not the SEO crawlers and SEO robots.
This is all my humble two cents of course, however, I hope that I have demonstrated by theories well, and I do hope that you had fun reading this content!
