Better search engine results are the key to website success—and that includes photo blogs. Having quality content on your website is absolutely necessary these days. But, you also have to know what can help boost your search engine rankings to get more traffic to your blog or photo website.
When it comes to Google, many SEO experts have all kinds of theories on what does and doesn’t affect your search engine results. But what if you could get the answers directly from Google? I think that’s what most website owners would want. Well, that’s exactly what I did—with an exclusive interview with Google’s Webmaster Trends Analyst, Gary Illyes.
Below are some of the highlights of the information that Gary shared with me:
- Your number one priority should be providing content that will help your users.
- Social media is great for website promotion. However, social shares will not help your search engine rankings.
- Don’t stress out about Negative SEO. Gary says he hasn’t seen any actual case of it. And, you can always use the disavow tool if you want.
- Converting your site to https will definitely help your search rankings.
