7 seo tips that will improve your site in 2016

2017 brought a whole new set of changes in the way businesses market their products and services, marketers try to improve their ranking with search engine optimization (SEO), the way people surf the web and a lot more. But there are also trends that proved effective for 2016 strategies and will continue to work in 2017.

According to hubspot.com, in the U.S. alone, an average of 12 billion web searches are conducted each month. SEO will gain importance more than anything else as it helps you drive quality traffic, get visibility, boost your brand and lend your business the credibility it needs to succeed. After all, what is the point of creating so much content and graphics if it is not visible to the audience when they run search query.

In 2015 also, marketers realized the value of SEO, aligning their content for customers’ needs and mobile optimization for better results. After all, 50% of all mobile searches are conducted in the hope of finding local results, and 61% of those searches result in a purchase, according to searchenginewatch.com.

Searchengineland.com suggests SEO is the process of driving traffic from the ‘organic’, and ‘paid’ sources to win the rat race of ranking on search engine result pages (SERPs).  Though search engine rankings keep on changing from time to time (it’s normal), make sure that you have built your site in the right way and regularly posting quality content to drive a steady stream of traffic to your pages.  An article in Quicksprout.com states that the average content length for a web page that ranks in the top 10 results for any keyword on Google has at least 2,000 words.

In 2015 we were wondering which SEO trends will turn out to be the major hits of 2016?  Here, we bring to you an exclusive exposé on SEO trends and developments that proved effective in 2016 and are set to rock the world in 2017 for those smart enough not to miss the opportunity. Have a look!

1. Social Content Continue to Gain Prominence

In the coming times, content from social media such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn will gain more importance on the SERPs. Already, 76% marketers use Social Media to support and boost SEO, cites an article published at Impactbnd.com. In 2017, marketers will do everything possible to make their Facebook posts or tweets rank higher on the SERPs.

Isn’t that amazing?! We predicted that more social media content will be indexed on Google and other popular search engines such as Bing and Yahoo. This will in turn blur the lines between ‘web’ and ‘social media’ in terms of SEO strategies. So, be prepared to find, collect and use your valuable social content for optimizing your page for maximum visibility.  For brand names, social media profiles are amongst the top results in search listings. For instance, if you search “Designhill” on Google, the company’s Facebook page, Twitter profile and the LinkedIn page appear as the top listings. See for yourself!

social content is a must

Blog.kissmetrics.com states that links to content on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube and other social networks help the search engine crawlers understand what websites are credible and should be ranked for what keyword phrases.

2017 Update: Social Media content got even more prominent in SERPs, through Google’s Knowledge Panel and Scrolling Carousel.

2. Videos Will Still Rule

We all know that videos are a great way of keeping audience engaged and entertained. But do you know that by using enough videos, you can improve the ranking of your page on the SERPs. A report by Marketing Land states that videos make for 62% of all Google searches universally. Moreover, Google has started giving attention to blended results/searches. So, why not grab this opportunity to appear on the first page of search results by including an engaging video in your content? According to Quicksprout.com, videos get 50 times better organic page ranks in Google as against plain, static text results. Also, video searches garner 41% higher click-through rate as compared to plain, static text content, according to Relesoo.com.

Many marketers chose to drive their modern marketing engine with the fuel of Video SEO in 2015. And we predict that more marketers and businesses will embrace the trend of videos in the coming year too. Take a glance at what a blended search result looks like for the search query “777 built in 4 minutes”.

Now, the only way to appear in the search engine pages like this is by uploading your videos on You Tube or through video SEO. It is important that Google is able to find your video content, successfully index it and display your video content when specific keywords are entered as search terms.

3. Mobile Optimization Has Become Crucial

Is your business website mobile-friendly? Your audience is no longer in one place. People use all sorts of devices such as tablets, smartphones, laptops, phone watches to browse web. Keeping this in mind, plenty of brands went mobile-friendly back in 2015. And we anticipated that more brands took up this trend in 2016. And with the announcement of Mobile-First Index to come in 2018, mobile optimization will become the norm, rather than exception. So, it’s high time you changed the way you conceptualize and create SEO strategies for mobile searches.

Neilpatel.com states that the total number of searches on mobile devices has seen a 43% increase year-over-year. Also, Google’s algorithm update this year ensured that mobile-friendly websites get a search ranking boost on mobile searches. As more and more people use mobile to surf the Internet, Google decided to make it easier to find relevant, mobile-optimized websites. So, it now uses mobile-friendliness as a factor in ranking search results. If you’re still not convinced, here are just 5 stats that will make you go mobile-friendly in 2017.

Therefore, make sure that mobile optimization finds a prominent place in your SEO strategies for the upcoming year to stay ahead of your competitors. Make sure that everything on your site, from colors to fonts and from content to logo design, is mobile optimized.

4. Voice Search Function a Must

These days, people who are on the go use voice search simply because it is more convenient and safer, especially when someone is driving or multi-tasking. It is becoming a huge part of mobile usage as it has taken away the pain of typing keywords to run a search query. Almost all mobile devices have a voice search functions. The popularity of voice searches has been spurred by Microsoft, Google, and Apple launching their own versions of advanced voice-responsive assistants – Cortana, Google Now and Siri.

Even ‘Domino’s Pizza’ has a ‘voice-ordering feature. However, make sure that your content is easily searchable through voice searches by using long-tail keywords, which are more likely to be spoken than conventional keywords.  Google Study finds voice search mostly used to ask for directions. For teens, doing a voice search while watching TV (59%) and while with friends (57%) are the highest use cases, according to marketingland.com. Whereas for adults, voice searching is done the most while watching TV (36%), followed by when with friends (24%) and while cooking (23%).

5. Content Aggregation will get Bigger & Better

According to Digitalcurrent.com, Knowledge Graph, wiki, local, maps, social media, news, images and videos make for 85% of Google search results. These stats indicates that now people look for sources that provide all relevant information for a particular subject or topic that at one place.

A blog published at imediaconnection.com explains that content aggregation is a practical way of finding, collating, amassing, consolidating, presenting, sharing, and displaying content around pre-specified set of criteria to appeal target audience. If you too are planning to do so, make sure that you collect and curate content from different, high-authority sources and display it at one place for your users to see to build your authority.

A great example of content curation is using the humble newsletter, Next Draft by Dave Pell, who has amassed over 160,000 subscribers to his daily email which shares the most interesting stories in business, culture, and tech, an article in Jeff Bullas explained. Another example is Inbound.org which was built by Moz and Hubspot to increase their reach even further.

6. The Craze of Mobile Apps Grows

According to Tech Crunch, mobile apps account for 52% of all time spent on online digital media. Another report available on the Internet reveals that users spend 89% mobile time using apps. This is the reason for more and more businesses planning to explore the advantage of mobile apps.

As discussed above, use of mobile for web search is on an all-time rise and apps just make the work easier. Just few more years and mobile apps are sure to overpower desktop and mobile websites. An article in searchenginejournal.com states that 85% of people prefer native mobile apps to websites. Feature your brand prominently in the app name and make sure you have proper links to apps for better search rankings Also, you must ensure that app optimization tops your list of SEO optimization. There are several brands that are benefiting from prominent mobile app visibility in Google’s organic search results. Have a look at what happens when you search eBay in Google. The app page URL presents a powerful opportunity to “occupy” the first page of Google SERPs.

7. Local SEO to Become Even More Important

This trend is only going stronger over the years. According to Entrepreneur.com, local SEO is likely to gain solid grounds in the coming days. As a marketer, you have to let Google know where you are located and what you are offering so that your chances of showing up on pages, especially in front of the relevant audience, increase. It is must to have your local pages which will include the name of your business, address etc. with Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Since Google came out with its “Pigeon” update, local SEO has gained significant prominence forcing businesses and marketers to focus on a local tangent.  So, ensure of having location specific keywords and personalize content basis your target audiences’ location to stay ahead in the game. Check out some stats to know the benefits of ranking in local search results.

Your listing in the local pages can increase consumer engagement with your business and your ranking. For instance, check out this example of three hospitals. The one that has the highest number of reviews ranks the highest. (Image source: Search Engine Journal)

2017 Update: Even though there are changes in how to do effective Local SEO, its importance hasn’t diminished – especially for small brick-to-brick businesses.

To conclude, you must brace yourself in expanding your presence on social media, instilling videos of your business in your content so that you get Page 1 ranking in Google. A good ranking ultimately helps you build strong influence and enhance your brand name amongst your audience.  So, don’t miss out on any latest update by Google and trends in search rankings to shine out in the crowd. The better SEO strategies you have, the more benefits you will have.

So, concentrate on creating fresh and quality content that you can and promote it across all social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. By just doing this, you will find that your search rankings have improved tremendously. The next step would be to sustain the rank by posting fresh and unique content and videos regularly.

    and coupled with the above outlined information, rising above the

    I have an ecommerce website that sells only mugs. That’s it, just mugs. I have a shload of images on every page. Every image is of different mugs. I think I have about 50 or so. Is it a bad practice if all of my image alt text starts with “mug”? Example: alt=”Mug sitting on coaster with tea bag” …. Or alt=”Mug with coffe in it”….. Or alt=”mug and newspaper on shelf”

    I really can’t find a good answer for this, and would like to know. It’s hard to just google the answer because the resulting topic is not close to my unique query. Anyone with any insight would be really helpful. I would like to start having my site indexed, and want to start out on the right foot with search engines like Google.

  • Great Thanks for the advice. I will start updating my website more regularly. Short, simple and crispy information…Cool! I think that measurement of SEO activities is very important things – it shows you the proper way. This is what we are all in the process of doing. Total SEO revamp of our web design website.

    I think this information will help me to improve the SEO of my blog. Simple and to the point. SEO = Quality content, competitive & realistic KW or key phrases, optimize your links and avoid spamming – simply the key to getting good rankings. Keeping the content fresh is really key. Also remembering to gain inbound links for specific pages and articles can really help.

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful article…I am trying to improve my website http://www.spicytrendz.in seo but it still doesn’t show up in the 1st 2 pages of google search. Does it take time for google to realize new relevant websites? it would be better if google publishes factors to get into the top search list. 🙂

    • Hey Sanju,

      You have to consider the fact that Google uses over 200 ranking factors when deciding which the most appropriate and relevant site to rank for a given set of keywords. Google has a delay or random ranking factor, when it comes to serps, you need to create linkable assets and start promoting them on social media and with other sites in your vertical.
      Google will never provide a full list with things that they look at, all we can do is test different techniques and stay up to date with the latest case studies. We do have a rough idea on what matters, you can check out this link: https://moz.com/search-ranking-factors

      Hope this will help you!

    Thank you for the info. However I added several links to youtube videos on my website http://www.scifibookseries.com and noticed no change in page rank overall, even after a few months. I thought that maybe the code before the video within the thumbnail was not allowing Google to see it, so I used pictures with a hyperlink to the videos and still no noticeable change in rank.

    • Hey, if you want to rank with videos than you have to embed them and add them to your site and as well as on other sites. However, PR is dead.

    What tools do you use as a content writer? To catch traffic, I mean, you have to do basic keyword research of sorts to know what search trends and articles doing better than others? How do you do list of Search suggestion, etc.? Pick headings and titles? I’ve been using auto suggest tools to generate ideas for my next piece of content (sg.serpstat.com) and used “questions only” filters to see what questions users put into Google. But when my content is ready (passed copyscape.com and everything) what tactics should I follow and SEO steps take to reach maximum exposure?
    Thank you.

    First thank you for such very informative guides on SEO on your blog. I am regular visitor of your site.

    I have one question. i created one post under name of Uber customer care India. I used lots of Longtail keyword like uber customer care number (indian city name, i used same keyword for more than 11 big indian cities by changing only city name). But, i cant ranked for all this even i doing backlinking by competitor analysis through Ahrefs.

    Can you guide me where and what i doing mistake? (For instant look at my post link is https://customerhelpguru.com/uber-customer-care-number-india/)(not for backlink)

  • Great such amazing tips to improve seo thanks for sharing such useful info with us

    SEO is a very volatile industry because of the many changes that take place in the Google algorithm within a period. The algorithm set in place this month may not be the same the next. It is an always evolving algorithm that encourages SEO specialists to stay on their toes and keep abreast with updates.

  • Big Life

    Problems solved by BigLife:
    Everybody has friends on facebook, contacts on whatsapp and followers on twitter and Instagram. I am assuming the no. of people in your network including your family and offline friends would be around 1,500 on average.
    Now, let’s look at the problem, how often do we have these people to help us or to solve our queries. Let’s say, at any given point in time you have 10% of those people at your rescue. So that no. comes out to be 150. Now be honest to yourself, do you actually think you can get in touch with these 150 people at one go and take their opinion whenever you need them? I feel that’s not the case. I feel not a lot of people are available to support us when we need that support. That’s problem no. one.
    Let’s look at the second problem. Suppose you have your business at small scale and you wish to promote it. Assuming you don’t wish to spend a lot of money on marketing, you would be able to reach your 1,500 contacts (value derived from first paragraph) and a few hundred people more. Do you wish to promote your business/product/service/skills to only these many people and do you think all of these guys will actually read your text? Well I feel it’s not the case. It takes a lot more to reach all your contacts on various platforms. So that’s a problem in my opinion
    Let’s look at problem no. three. How often do we need suggestions from people? Bare minimum at least twice a day, considering we are pretty active during the day. Now, people who know us already know what kind of suggestions we want to hear, so it’s fair to say, suggestions from people who already know us are not really neutral. Well, wouldn’t you want to get neutral suggestions without arguing or fighting with anyone?
    We all know about how teams are formed and good things happen, for example, TVF, AIB, Scoopwhoop, etc., but not everyone has that set of friends or connections to make a team, hence people stop dreaming. Now that’s a major problem if we look at it seriously. That’s a problem that’s very evident, but people don’t realise that it’s a problem.
    Keeping all these points in mind and many more such problems which are entirely based on communication and networking, I came up with a solution, called BigLife.
    BigLife is a community wherein users can connect, network, collaborate with each other and interact freely, about anything they wish to while staying anonymous. This platform allows you get in touch with users by asking and answering questions and lets you share your thoughts, opinions and knowledge with other users in the community.
    However, there is a unique feature in this app. It allows you to choose your audience while sharing content by using the following filters:
    · Age Range
    · Gender
    · Location
    · Marital Status
    · Occupations
    · Hobbies
    · Eating Preferences
    For example – You can connect with users between the age range of 25-32, married, staying in South Delhi, who are interested in Yoga.
    That’s how easy it is to find someone of your interest.
    This platform can be used in multiple ways. Here are some examples on how to use this app:
    · Users can share content with the masses at one go
    · Entrepreneurs, Creative People, Self Employed people can make use of this platform to find the right person to collaborate with
    · Users can use this app to get their ideas validated. For instance, an upcoming writer can share a piece of their article to get opinion from other users
    · This app can be used to ask questions and getting real-time replies from other users
    · It can be used to broadcast messages such as important events, news, social causes etc.
    · This app can also be used to socialize with other users
    · Users can share their contact information at their discretion
    These are just some of the ways of using this app. Since it’s a platform that connects you with other users, it’s actually up to you how you make use of this powerful resource.
    Considering all the points mentioned above and other possible ways in which this app can be used, my goal is to see this app actually adding value in people’s lives.
    So don’t wait up and join the community!

    • Hi there!
      Nice to hear you paid attention to those trends, but you also need to pay attention to basic SEO rules. Your site has many SEO rookie mistakes. So, start with the basics. Good luck!

      • can you please show me one single rookie mistake in my website..

      • hi.. please show me rookie mistakes in my website. i will correct this..

      • Hi!

        You might want to include some proper links into your footer (in stead of #), create a clear hierarchy in the services area, implement better breadcrumbs, stop building links from comments, and take better care of your internal linking structure and site architecture.

        Also, you are missing the point of having a blog. A page with less than 200 words that promotes your services while repeating same phrases is hardly useful for your visitors. If you created a blog page, make full use of it 🙂
