Moving HTTP To HTTPS Your 2017 #1 Resolution

Cross posted from the Anglux Blog where it first appeared.
Back in 2014, Google has announced HTTPS as a ranking signal, at the time my reaction was, well like that of most people, so what, it is just negligible and virtually impossible to attribute any SEO advantage to https, or to any other single factor for that matter.

I have at least 10 other things I can think of that are a priority… forward to 2017 and that’s not so anymore. Chrome will eventually by December 2017 mark all HTTP pages as “Not secure“. In red for good measure.

Google Analytics Assistant For Mobile Apps > More #AI

This is both part of Google’s continued inroads into AI (Artificial Intelligence) and mobile first, or in this case mobile only, the analytics assistant is a machine learning feature that seems quite useful, and is only available on mobile and tablet apps.

Not to be confused with tag assistant. Analytics assistant trolls through all your Google Analytics data and comes out with some insights of its own, at first glance appears to be really useful and can inform the production of content. In fact the assistant can make suggestions based on the insights it came up with.

In case for some reason you are still thinking that keyword density (the proportion of keywords to the total number of words on a page) bears any relevance to the rankings of your page for these keywords.

Well they don’t, abusing and overusing keywords are a sure way to get on Panda’s radar sooner or later. Continue reading

What Is QDF [Query Deserves Freshness] Why Fresh Content For SEO

What Is QDF? [Query Deserves Freshness]. The name is pretty self explanatory, taken literally and all things being equal,  fresher content will have priority over not so fresh or older content. But this does not apply to all queries or all query types.

Server Location For SEO – How Important Is It?

In addition to using a local TLD for SEO and paying attention to other region, country and even city specific local SEO factors, it is also very important to consider where your server is located.

Here is proof that server location is an SEO ranking factor, right from the horse’s mouth, here’s the horse; I mean, Matt Cutts himself on the record explaining how they saw it in June 2009. Continue reading

Is .co.uk Better For SEO? Local SEO And TLDs

Is .co.uk better seo? This is a question that brings a few visitors to this site, Google seems to “think” I already answer that question in another post. Google Local SEO 8 Quick Tips for Business. I’ll save you the click through, see below what that page says about a local TLD being better for SEO.

If you are a targeting just a local area or the UK, you will be better off with a .co.uk domain name than a .com. If you are elsewhere get a local TLD (top level domain) i.e. .pt for Portugal .sp for Spain and so on.
If available, you should also get the .com for your business name, this avoids someone else getting it and compete with your site or try and impersonate you.

HTTPS Chrome Will Show Security Warnings On http://yoursite.com

Before anything else, obviously where it says “http://yoursite.com”, it will be the url of your own site on any notice you receive specific to it.

It has been a long time coming but it is finally almost here. Google announced almost a year ago that Chrome will eventually mark all HTTP pages as “NOT SECURE”.

I have written in January that “Moving HTTP To HTTPS” should be your 2017 number 1 resolution. Since then I have moved lots of sites from HTTP to HTTPS and without exception, the SEO impact was either positive or not noticeable yet.
