How Search Engines Work

Search engines can only read text and follow links. That’s it. With these two pieces of data, they want to be able to deliver the most relevant results possible for a given search. In order to gain search engine rankings for your targeted terms, and more importantly, quality search engine traffic that converts into customers, we need to take 3 primary factors into account with our approach in order to succeed.

Three Key Principles of SEO – A.C.T.

The three keys to search engine optimization (SEO)

Authority

This is the area that puts the “marketing” into search engine marketing, and as studies by SEOmoz and others have shown – it’s a critical piece of the equation if you want to actually beat the competition at SEO.

What is authority and what makes it so important? Read our SEO whitepaper to get an in-depth explanation; but the key thing to understand is this. Search engines want to deliver the most relevant results possible for a given search. A major clue for search engines lies in the concept of “authority”. Traditionally this has meant inbound links (or – links from other sites to yours), but they are also finding ways to include signals social media to determine authority.

Content

On-site SEO – putting keywords on your site. This is what most people think of when they hear SEO. It’s not that simple though. Proper content optimization focuses on

  1. Understanding your target audience and how they use search engines (keyword research)
  2. Evaluating your site’s content and assets against what the target audience is looking for (content audit)
  3. Editing, enhancing and creating content to better serve their needs (content optimization)
  4. Building SEO into your content development process
  5. Repeat the steps above – SEO is never done
Technical

While many people understand that there’s a technical component to SEO, it’s a pretty misunderstood aspect of the process. There is no magical technical source-code wizardry that’s going to magically shoot your site to the top of Google rankings. However, technical issues can ruin your site’s chances of succeeding and torpedo all of your great content & authority efforts.
