1. What are the 11 factors that influence SEO?

Factor #1 🌈: The responsive design of the website

Hence the importance of offering a pleasant experience to visitors by considering each version:

  • Desktop
  • Tablet
  • Horizontal mobile
  • Vertical mobile

Factor n° 2 🦿: the accessibility of the Website

  1. The Website must be made accessible to all persons with any kind of disability
  2. The accessibility function is becoming more and more important so that everyone can have access to information

Factor n° 3 ⚒️: The construction of the Web site

Several elements influence the logic of the Website and its path, namely:

  • The way the Website is structured
  • The sections
  • The pages

Factor #4❓: Audience Awareness

  1. A good knowledge of its niche, will allow to know the elements to be set up so that the visitor passes to the action and remains longer on the Web site
  2. It's important to talk to your audience to resonate feelings in order to build trust and take action.

Here are some examples of actions that a visitor can do on your Website:

  • Download an e-book
  • Subscribe to a newsletter
  • Proceed to the purchase of a service or product

Factor #5 🛒: Understanding the user's intentions

  1. A few years ago, SEO strategies were based onkeyword optimization
  2. This is no longer the case today because a good strategy is now based primarily on theuser experience
  3. And this requires an understanding of the Internet user's intentions.
  4. They can be summarized in three questions:
    - What is the visitor's question?
    - What information does the visitor want to obtain?
    - What is the main objective of the search?
  5. The objective will be to answer these questions by creating appropriate topics.
  6. The keywords will appear naturally

Factor #6 🔗: Link building

  1. By Link Building, we mean internal and external link building (also called Backlinks)
  2. It is the fact of creating a linking strategy by making links in its own content and from other websites
    - Ex. internal linking: I send you to the sales page of my coaching programs
    - Ex. external linking: Webflow refers to the Happy.webacademy in Webflow Certified Expert
  3. It is true that certain practices, such as the use of link farms or the purchase of links, have tarnished the image of link building and pushed Google to adapt its policy on links
  4. The quantity of links is no longer the most important factor, but rather their quality and relevance

Factor #7 🗞️ : Backlinks from News Sites that already have good domain authority

  1. I talked to you about domain authority in the blog post : Webflow and SEO, the perfect combo don't hesitate to check it out 😉
  2. The most successful pages have more links to the press site
  3. Newspaper websites such as forbes.com, lemonde.fr, elle.fr, ... would have the particularity to improve your SEO if they have links in their articles that refer to your website
  4. Since Google trusts these press websites, it deduces that if these websites mention your website, it means that you offer quality content too

How do I get links from these news sites?

  • Become an expert in your field to get interviews
  • Write your own press releases and send them out
  • Advertising
  • Help reporters and have direct access to the press
  • Invest in your community and make it grow in order to be found by these Sites
  • Write quality content and become a source of information for the press

Factor #8 🔑: Relevant keywords.

  1. We have just seen above that Strategies based on keywords are a bit outdated
  2. In any case, this strategy is not enough to have an optimal SEO
  3. Should we forget them? No
  4. So try to integrate them into your SEO strategy but sparingly
  5. However, make sure you choose the most relevant ones, again with respect to the visitor's intentions, and avoid abusing them.
  6. You could be penalized by Google

Factor n° 9 🖱️: The integration of interactive elements

  1. Numerous studies show a high degree of correlation between good positioning (ranking) and theuse of interactive elements

Here are some examples of interactive elements to integrate:

  • Share buttons to social networks
  • Infographics
  • Videos
  • Surveys
  • Games
  • Links to other content (internal linking)
  • GIFs

Are they counted as such for the ranking? Not necessarily ... But they improve the user experience, and that's the priority!

Factor #10 🔍: Readability of content

  1. The more readable an article is, the easier it is toincrease the ranking of a page
  2. Again, always keep in mind that it is theuser experience that comes first

Content with the following characteristics works best:

  • Length: Longer articles (minimum 1200 words)
  • Paragraphs: Paragraphs are needed to air the text, not too short nor too long (+/- 300 words)
  • The transition words: To begin with, then, therefore, finally, to conclude, ...
  • Content quality: Visitors look for value and quickly understand when it is low quality content
  • Layout: the layout of the entire website also has an impact

Factor #11 🔒: Website Security

  1. The use of an HTTPS domain
  2. As Google announced, the use of secure domains has an impact on the ranking
  3. How important is this factor? According to Searchmetrics, it is not critical
  4. If you have the opportunity to do so, do it!
  5. But you can still get good results without implementing secure domains

2. Why is having an optimized SEO important?

  1. Because SEO is a long-term job
  2. You must maintain your natural referencing and continually optimize it
  3. It allows you to attract clients on a long-term basis
  4. To increase your chances of appearing among the first search results
  5. To increase the number of leads and customers
  6. To show Customers that you exist and that your company is still active

  1. Hence the importance of building up quality content so that other websites will refer to it

✍️ Tips : You can use the "win-win" strategy and offer to create content in which you refer to a Site and in exchange this Site does the same for yours.

5. Step 5: Monitor your positioning and that of your competitors

  1. The positioning analysis also allows you to evaluate your progress in SEO and to be alerted in case of a problem that may be related to an algorithm update or a technical change made to the site or due to a penalty
