SEO Services Provided by Neil Ferree
My SEO Services impact all aspects of your online presence.
Social SEO Signals and Shares
Social SEO is more about getting your content found, seen, +1’d, liked, retweeted and shared than it is getting links pointing to your site.
Panda and Penguin have marginalized the gaming of link building and social shares are already influencing Google search results. These dynamics will determine how SEO professionals advise their clients on Social SEO best practices in the coming months. What we do know is that everything is being tracked and you can’t buy Authority.
Social Shares is the Future of SEO. Your Author Rank will be determined by the quality and quantity of Social Signals and Social Shares your content generates. Just like links pointing to your site are considered “votes” social shares serve as validation to the quality of your content.
Google Authorship is Gone
Now that Google has pulled the plug on Authorship our Bio Head-Shot Rich Snippet will only render in the personalized search results. This makes it even more important that we make a compelling case for our prospective customers to add us to one of their Google+ Circles. Once they do this, our content (articles, videos and decks) will render higher in the personalized search results (by default) unless the user clicks the globe to hide personal search results.
Our About Tab on our Google+ Profile is where and how Google connects and links our social media footprint to our social content. You will want to populate Other Profiles and your Contributor To sections with your social profiles and any 3rd party sites where you contribute content as a guest post blogger or content author.
More is better in this case. Take the time to include ALL of your social profiles in the “other profiles” section. Don’t forget to add the top sites where your content resides. This will make it easy for Google to link and credit your vetted credentials to your semantic footprint and body of work.
One of these days, these sites and links connected to your Google+ profile will have a favorable influence on your Author Rank.
