Ebon Talifarro SEO Q&A From Australia

I recently took a vacation with my family “down under” to visit Australia and wow! I must say it’s truly a completely different world down there. First, I’d like to say that the rumors are indeed true: everything there wants to kill you and it can. The spiders are huge and the plans shouldn’t be touched unless you know exactly what you are dealing with.

As far as wildlife goes, Australia is a total nightmare! Everything else about the location is awesome. The temperature isn’t too hot and, again, other that the wildlife, your only worry is understanding what people are saying.

While there, I still had to do some work and had the honor of going into a college classroom to answer as many SEO Q&A questions as I could understand. The good news is they study hard and do their homework, so I wasn’t there answering questions for no more than 15 minutes.

Here are some of the questions along with my responses:

Q: What’s the difference between internal and inbound links?

A: Ah, yes, I get this question often, but surprisingly I haven’t lately until then.  Both of these types of links are very necessary for SEO. Internal links are links that are connected to another page on your site whereas an inbound links are links to other websites.

Q: How long do I have to wait to see my SEO results?

A: The results happen anywhere within 48 hours. You do your work and then the search engine will do its work. Certain things contribute to the placement or rank of your content in the search engine, such as the quality of the content you have published and how much of it. The size or strength of your site also plays a big role. To be sure, I often tell my students to wait at least a week.

Q: Is there such a thing as too many links in the content?

A: There isn’t exactly a magic right number, but there is such a thing as link overload. You don’t want your entire content to be riddled full of links to the point it hinders the reader’s experience. Depending on the word count of your content, I’d say follow the hundreds rule I learned in school. If your content has 100 words, add 1 link, 2 at the most. If you have 200 words, 2 links, 3 at the most. 300 is equal to 3 links, 4 at the most and so on. Another thing you can do is try to have one link in every paragraph.

SEO’s Endless Research

SEO and research groups have a lot in common, but the main thing is they both spend hours a day researching, looking for answers to many questions people have. The Foundation for Defense of Democracies, for example, are a research group that really sticks to one core study: Iran. They dedicate time in and time out to bring the latest news of what is going on overseas and you can see it all through their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/followFDD.

Q: What does a SEO spend so much time to research?

A: You’ll can ask any SEO this and somewhere in their answer you’ll hear them say, “Keywords.” Keyword researching has been the “go to” tool for many SEOs over the many years. In fact, the word just may make some of them cringe.

Q: They still use keywords today?

A:  Many years ago, there was a time when keywords were the core to an operation and the way it worked was simple. Google would gather information on a website mainly grounded what keywords were displayed on the pages and within links on the page. With that information, success was understood by companies and how they ranked in search engines determined the success of the site.

Today, Google still operates using text to understand what a company is all about and what service or product they have to offer. With that being said, keywords for an SEO aren’t yet extinct and still provide some great deal of usefulness. Another way to understand it is to say keywords are little appetizers of data for Google. An appetizer gives you a bit of an idea of what a restaurant is all about. Likewise, keywords give a little idea to what a business is about.

SEO Q&A What Search Engines Want

Q: When it comes to SEO, how does it help what search engines look for?

A: An excellent question! Search engines want to be as helpful to you as they can. What they do is they send web searchers like yourself to websites as accurately as possible based on what is searched. The content is presented by the theme being given, the text on the page, and the titles and descriptions that are given. The performance of the site matters as far has how well the site responds. Remember the theme mentioned? How the site looks plays a part in all this as well as if it easy to navigate. These things are important to keep in mind if looking to attract customers to a store site to buy product such as your live food in stock at Reefs2Go. A couple other indicators are if your site is safe and if the bounce rate is too high.

Q: Bounce Rate?

A: I am glad you asked. No, really. The bounce rate is a metric that has to do with if you are attracting the right traffic to your site or the wrong traffic to your site. You are gonna want that rate to be low on pages with the highest bounce rate which means more committed visitors.

Q: So with that out of the way, what are search engines not looking for?

A: Search engines have these diabolical drone things called spiders or webcrawlers and they limited data storage. If you’re performing shady tactics or trying to trick them you will most likely regret it later. One of the main things search engines do not want are users who lack experience. You can avoid this by making it easy for the user to navigate your website. If you have an overload of ads, this could be making it too difficult for people to find what they are looking for and you know what that means? Up goes the bounce rate.

SEO has been around since the early 90’s. Is it still viable? In short, yes! The skill of SEO is complex and it is still changing even today because it has to keep up with a couple factors, being constant evolving technology and Google updating its search algorithm countless times a year in an attempt to keep their search business relevant or else Google won’t be #1 anymore. Social media such as the popular Twitter and Facebook along with many others are also part of this fierce competition for the attention of the internet users, especially those that are in a mood to spend money!
