SEO ranking – The factors you need to focus on in 2018

Site Search 360
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is not what it used to be. No surprise there, just think of an industry that hasn’t changed over the years. The reason SEO isn’t the same, however, is because the rules and ethics keep changing and are pretty much rewritten every year. It’s not easy to keep up with this and Google like it that way. So, looking at your own website and the results you want to achieve, what gave you a positive return last year may not work at all in 2018. You will always find changes that you “cannot ignore” if you want to rank higher, however, the fundamental aspects remain the same. I’m talking about Google ranking factors that can make or break your website’s position in the SERPs (search engine results pages). There are literally hundreds of ranking factors document

Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them? 1 — Small businesses can now create Pinterest ‘Shop the Look’ Pins and sell more items. Pinterest’s Shop the Look tool lets visitors search for similar items that they see on the site by clicking on certain parts of a pin connected to the image.  In other words, if you like the way a person is dressed in a picture but you’re not crazy about the tie he’s wearing you can click on the tie’s pin (assuming there is one) to search for other similar ties...and then buy the one you like.  Last week, Pinterest opened up its Shop the Look tool to creators and small and midsized businesses.

Google posted on Twitter Friday morning that some of their reports within Google Search Console are currently delayed more than their normal two-days. “Some Search Console reports are currently a bit more delayed due to issues in the reporting pipeline,” the company said. This has no impact on your search rankings, this is just a reporting issue. Which reports are delayed? Specifically, the AMP, Rich Results / Structured Data, Hreflang, Index Coverage, and Mobile Usability reports are all delayed according to Google. I will say that I did check several of these reports, and not all of them are delayed. For example, while the mobile usability and AMP reports are both a week old, the index coverage report is only two days delayed, which is the normal expected
