7 Trends and Tips on How to Do SEO in 2020

SEO best practices are always changing, and maximizing your search traffic opportunities is crucial to your brand. Check out the latest SEO updates from experts in the field and read more details on Social Media Today.

The TL;DR

  1. Focus on the basics. Trends are not a magic pill – you can figure out what to expect from search engines, but routine work is the main recipe for success.
  2. Write for users, not machines. As artificial intelligence gets more sophisticated, producing content for Google’s algorithm is harder than writing for the end-user.
  3. Build trust in your brand. As Google continuously judges your business, you need to build out a website and a real business with numerous entities in place that search engines can trust and understand.
  4. Make your site fast and safe. Comfort is key. Search engines care about the user’s convenience and safety above all.
  5. Get to know your user better. Accommodate for personalization in your strategy and the way you report on performance to your clients. Read up on Zero Party Data to learn how to do personalization right.
  6. Aim for Featured snippet. The featured snippets above the first organic search result get a high click-through rate because the results featured in this section generally answer user queries directly.
  7. Don’t disregard link building. Links are the beginning of every SEO success story and are a powerful traffic driver.
