How much does size matter?

By Cloudrovia

All Webmasters are guilty of shortcut hunting when it comes to SEO. The fact is simple. Valuable SEO methods take time & energy. The most time consuming & frustrating form of SEO is long-form content. Now, definitions of ‘long-form’ vary a great deal but most can agree anything over 1000 words equates to something long-form. Some people publish content as high as 10,000 words… eek. I can get to a point where its not serving its purpose, in my opinion writing for search engines is dead. You need to be writing for people. For the purpose of reading. So if it takes more than 5-10 minutes to read your content is getting skimmed over. Always remember the purpose of your content. It is to educate, not to spam Google. That being said, content over 1000 words tends to boost rankings quicker than content under 1000 words. You don’t have to commit to every post being this long but its a good idea to work some long form into your blogging schedule.

Don’t have an SSL? These facts show that you’re pissing in the wind.

By Cloudrovia

3 Letters. SSL. You need a secure website. HTTPS now makes up 99% of Organic search results on Google. Meaning all search results #1-#10 are sites that have an SSL Certificate. If you don’t have one, you are falling by the wayside. Even when we get down to result number #50 (page 5) the sites are 94% HTTPS. Simply put, Google is giving a heavy preference to sites that carry an SSL Certificate, after all Google is built to serve the searcher so offering secure results is a key part of their commitment to searchers. Especially after the Major Internet Security breaches this year. Secure sites are no longer just an option. Google has recently called SSL/HTTPS a “lightweight ranking signal”, the facts above support this too. Don’t for a second think HTTPS alone with get your ranking up but know that without it you’re just pissing in the wind.
