SEO Trends for 2021 - Part Five


In this month’s SEO Trends for 2021, we take a look at one of the most important elements in SEO. In fact, this factor might be more important than all the others.

And that factor is quality.

The reason quality is so important is that quality content is the lifeblood of any search engine. Without it, our user experience would be terrible.

And if the user experience isn’t good, the search engine won’t attract any users.

What’s more, we’ll also discover that site speed and how users interact with your site is rapidly becoming an important part of SEO in general.

In this post you’ll find:
  • How focusing on serving Google users will help you create content that search engines love (rather than chasing after the latest Google updates)
  • Why improving your page authority will give you an edge over your competitors in the crowded SEO market
  • How even though Core Web Vitals metrics are important, they should always be balanced by a good user experience

In this post, I’ll get into:
  • What’s the difference between SEO and SEM?

Bing SEO: Higher Optimization Awaits!

SEO takes on a major role in the world of digital marketing.

When we think of SEO, though, Google seems to be the first thing that comes to mind. For those of you who might have forgotten - Google isn’t the only search engine out there.

Microsoft’s Bing, for instance, is the second most used search engine in many countries worldwide. According to Statista - Bing captured 6.5% of the global search market in July 2020.

Also, according to ComScore, traffic converts better at Bing's Network and their audience spends 6.8% more money online than Google searchers.

No matter where your loyalty lies, through this blog post we’ll get deeper into the advantages of Bing SEO.

SEO Data API - How to Get Started


Every good digital marketer loves data.

The reason is as a marketer, every decision you make should be backed up with data. Think of data as the instruments on your aircraft. Without instruments, on a foggy day, a pilot literally doesn’t know what direction they’re flying in.

The same is true of SEO.

With that said, there are many different ways to present data. Each presentation tells a different story. Each story gives you unique insights.

This means not every tool or data set will help a marketer find the insights they are looking for. You can’t build a cabinet with just a hammer.

This brings me to the subject of APIs for SEO.

There are times when the standard toolset just isn’t enough. Many marketers turn to APIs when they need their data presented in a specific way.

In this post, I’ll be covering what an API is and how you can use one to improve your SEO. I’ll also show you how you can get started using Rank Ranger’s API. 

SEO Trends for 2021 - Part One


It seems like just yesterday when 2021 rolled in. Although it’s already March, we decided to reach out to SEO experts to pick their brains.

We wanted to know what SEO trends to look at for the rest of 2021.

Now you might be wondering…

What’s the point in creating another expert roundup?

I wanted to create a resource that will help you the reader really scale up your SEO for 2021 by understanding the emerging trends. A resource that will help you turn knowledge into actionable insights.

Without further ado, here are the emerging SEO trends for 2021 part one.

How to Create an SEO Dashboard


As an SEO, it’s crucial to understand how your campaigns are bringing your site sales.

To understand this, you must set up reporting dashboards that not only show how your site is performing but also help you to create a strategy to improve your sales moving forward.

The question is...

What metrics should you track?

Start with general sales data, and then work your way into more specific data. This structure will give you solid foundations for understanding your overall SEO sales strategy.

To help you do this, I’ll show you how to set up a marketing dashboard using a combination of Google Analytics and Google Search Console data.

International and Search Engine Rank Tracking


Business owners often fight for every bit of Google traffic they can get. The problem is, with so many businesses going online, Google is becoming more competitive with each passing day.

However, there are two traffic sources that are all too often overlooked.
  • Traffic from search engines other than Google
  • Global traffic

What’s more, these traffic sources tend to be less competitive than the US Google traffic.

The question is should you take advantage of these traffic sources?

In this post, I’ll be looking at the global search engine market share to show you how much you could potentially expand your business. 

What is a Marketing Dashboard?


Marketing joins two worlds.

On the one hand, there is the creative side which connects with the end-user. Wedded to the creative side is the analytical side.

Analytics and data tell marketers if their creative efforts are paying off. 

Any online business that has a presence on multiple channels and platforms will have many sources of data all reporting on different aspects of the campaign.

Keeping track of all of these data sources is difficult. Making sense of it all is almost impossible.

To solve this problem, marketing dashboards were created.

In this post, I’ll be going through what marketing dashboards are, how they work, and why you need them.
