The 3 Major Components of Search Engine Optimization
The saying "Content is King" still holds true but only when done correctly.
We reverse engineer Google to determine what Google wants to see such as how many words, how many links, how many header tags (H1, H2, H3,) there are in the content of a site. In all, we look at 500+ ranking factors on 100 Websites (that's 50,000 data points!) per keyword, to determine the correct recipe for each page.
The basis of any piece of content are keywords. There are many theories about keyword density, tags and other aspects of SEO, many of which are just pure guesses.. We use only proven methods and tools to mine for the keywords that will produce the best return on investment for our clients.
Links from other websites are still very important but they must be of higher quality than in years past. Links from real websites with real website users are the best for SEO purposes.
Links from other sites are signals that tell Google other sites think you content has merit. There are good 'White Hat' and bad 'Black Hat' ways to get links to your content and website. We only employ "White Hat" techniques as it is safe and has long lasting results. We promote your content via social media, outreach to other related sites and other propriety methods to get only the very best website linking to your website.
This is the future for Google search. It continually analyses the behavior of actually and current google search users and continually refines what people like and do not like.
Rank Brain is a machine learning algorithm inside of the main Google algorithm that learns how real users interact on your website. If users come to your website and immediately leave, this is a signal to Google that they either did not find what they searching for, or were confused and left.

As a rule of thumb we estimate SEO to take:
