It´s the third time a whole bunch of international SEO experts got surveyed on their opinions of the algorithmic elements that comprise search engine rankings. This year 72 SEOs contributed to the study (last year it´s been only 40 experts), with me and Thomas Bindl being the only guys from germany – Go german SEO scene
I´m really proud to be a contributor to this awesome study for the second year in a row!
Ok, the study really didn´t show anything mind-boggling new, but if you´re keeping yourself up to date in the SEO sphere, there´s just nothing that might surprise you anyways. Ranking in a searchengine is still about great compelling content, that´s crawl- and indexable, as well as solidly onSite SEOd, in combination with quality links pointing to your site. Mix in a little trust you gain with Google over time, if you´re doing a good job (and don´t try to trick the Big G), and that´s about it
But the study has raised some nice questions, you might haven´t even thought about yet, as well as a couple of good quotes by the experts, giving you a little bit more insight. So even if you are a SEO expert yourself already, it´s still well worth a read!
