    There are a lot of agencies who sells you "First position in the search results", like a shortcut, like a magic wand. How truth could it be? What if you pay for that but your site has not a good html structure??? Still magic wand works?

    Companies put so much effort into backlinking that they limit themselves to not doing real marketing of their company. Just following what this guy is saying has produced the same results as a $1500/mo backlinking campaign.

    the only things he said that I understood, are the things I already knew. when google and the ilk (who am I kidding, google is the only one, they all use google search results as their own, they just put them in their own css, this goes for bing, yahoo, which used to be good, but it's now just dead in the water, duckduckgo, yandex, weibo, literally all of them just display google generated results, which is demonstrable by image searching "american inventors" on any one of them). Anywho, when he talks about link building, he means that google just looks up what words are linked to some other content, and regards those words as keywords. the only other thing that is taken as keyword, are words inside of <h1> tag. that's why he's talking about paying attention to what you put in your title. the rest of his points I don't know what they apply to, so of course I don't understand what he's saying. I don't know why web developers have to be so cagey about their knowledge. looking up web optimization, gives you few basics on what not to do. looking up cssdom, gives you a shitload of content on web optimization, including how it affects search result ranking of your page. if it loads too slowly, google pushes it down. if you look up meta tags, they give you seo optimization. meta tags are so much more than just content and keywords, robots and viewport, but god help you, in order to find either one of the others, you actually have to look up the result of them, rather than just "complete list of meta tags" which actually results in "description, keywords, viewport and robots, and maybe social meta tags" which really shouldn't be talked about any more, cause literally every resource includes them, we get it.

    Seriously, i don't know if it's web masters who hide this content by forcing you to search for something else, or if it's just an extreme case of seo optimization, but the way he talks about 2 tips I know and get, suggests it's actually web masters who hide what they know to be more competitive. anyone can learn basics, so keeping good knowledge to themselves, they can make sure that noobs stay noobs for a very long time.

    Hey Matt, I love the Panda, pengiun and other Gogle Updates 🙂 Years ago I used to provide Local and Small Buiness SEO services and couldn;t compete with the 1000,s of Spammy Links the cheap Indian SEO companies were using. Now those companies are offerig a new way to get around the New Rules, but it's so much easier to explain why fewer qality links and Engaging Content is a longer term Strategy and their willing to wait for results (and much easier to convince them that Link Farms and poorly Spun, unreadable content is damaging their reption rather than improving it).
    1 question though, I promote a UK based eCommerce site which has a link from a similar site based in Holland. It get's plenty of clicks, but no sales and the Bounce Rate is very high since the postge costs make it innefective to buy from the UK and have it delivered to Holland. Does this hgh bonce rate affect my rankings now, and would Disavowing the link solve this problem? I could also ask the Dtch Webmaster to set the links to No-Follow. #any sggestion?

    Question: Assuming that everyone are aware of the mistakes in SEO engineering and also is doing the right improvements for better SEO results, how then google will rank pages? I mean, if there are too much sites which are doing everthing right for a good ranking, how google will handle it?

    Great video, but for small business like myself, would be really helpful to know some of the free resources you are talking about. I am not a developer or website builder, not everybody can afford to pay marketing and a website developer/builder.

    Another mistake which Webmasters can make is by not utilizing Google Webmaster and Bing webmaster as a tool to monitor their website. These two tools will give you great insight into your own website. It will help you identify technical issues and various other issues.
