Search Engine Optimization Guaranteed To Work

There is only one kind of search engine optimization guaranteed to work —help search engines make more money. Search engines work by helping other people find what they want, so you have to produce content people want to consume, and then you have to help the search engine tell the consumers about your content.

Sound complicated? It’s not.

The Only Type Of Search Engine Optimization Guaranteed To Work

We do not really have to make SEO sound harder than it is. There are lots of search engine optimization tips on the Internet, but many of them approach optimization as a way to get the search engine to do what you want. That’s the wrong way to look at it—even if you do manage to scam the search engine, the developers will either fix the problem or a new search engine will come around.

Think about how Google became the king of search. Before Google introduced their PageRank algorithm, many sites used content stuffing to rank for extra keywords to increase incoming traffic. In short: before Google, search engines stunk. Google was able to overturn the existing market by blowing away scammers.

But the sites which helped search engines before Google also gained the most when Google appeared. Google eliminated scammers in an instant so those helpful sites were the only sites which appeared on the first results pages (that was the intention anyway).

How To Work With Search Engines

The goal of every major search engine is to make money. Obviously they are businesses that have expenses and earnings. Each search engine wants more searches, and the chief way they get more searches is by convincing people to use them instead of their competitors.

There are some niche search engines, but the biggest search engines —Google and Bing— both try to convince people their search is better because their results are more useful.

So search engines make money by showing the most useful results.

That means if you want search engine optimization guaranteed to work you need to do two things:

  1. Publish useful content.
  2. Help the search engine find, index, and correctly categorize your useful content.

This is my most basic way to explain search engine optimization guaranteed to work for you. Think about it. You have awesome content and now you just need the search engines to find it, so you help out a bit.

How To Ensure Search Engine Optimization Guaranteed Content

Everyone creates content in their own way—but to ensure you create useful content, make sure it’s something good enough that you’d use it yourself.

To help the search engine find your content, use the basic search engine optimization techniques recommended by everyone:

  • Use the keyword phrase you want to rank for at least once in your article, but twice or three times if you can without making the content less useful.
  • Make sure you write an interesting title for the article because that’s what people will pay attention to in the search results. That is how SEO works best, you start by attracting humans and think about the rest later. Humans approving of your content sends signals that cannot be faked.
  • Try to get a few natural incoming links to your content so search engines know you’re an authority
  • Write for people, not web spiders. Just as your spam filter can use Bayesian analysis to separate legitimate mail from marketing email, so can a search engine indexer separate legitimate content from bogus content
  • Finally, examine every technique recommended by experts to see if the technique helps the search engine (as well as you) so you know whether it offers search engine optimization guaranteed.

    Sometimes I also get confused that why Google is better than all of the others search engines.I think this is because Google gained trust of all of the peoples who used them.I really loved to read about Search Engines and how they work.

    Hi Mitz,

    You seem to know so much about SEO… . I have a question for you. Please help me understand the essence of SEO. Let me explain .
    If you choose to specialize yourself in Wordpress and become a developer, then you need to learn a lot of things: PHP, CSS, all kind of script language etc. However, when you work in Wordpress, you find that the main thing that you need to do every day is coding. You have to write code. Of course, you will do many other things but basically this is the essence of Wordpress: writing code every day, every night.

    Could you please make me understand the essence of SEO? What type of activity or work you do every day when you are an SEO specialist? What is what you do on a daily basis? What is the core of the activity of an SEO specialist? I try a few ideas: testing keywords, studying algorithms, creating links?

    Have a nice day

      I do my SEO myself. I research keywords, post content to suit, optimize this onpage, monetize this, then create links to it. The best way to rank is to show that the user likes your page…they might stay a long time, they might click on your listing in the search engine first, they might like you on social, they might link back to you. The proof is needed to seal the deal… You can no longer just promote keywords, although this helps, you also need the whole package of proof.

    Hi Mitz,
    Once again an interesting article from you. I remember that most of your articles have been about technology and this one about SEO is good. The reverse understanding approach can really work. However it will be very difficult to build a good strategy for this.
