SEO Research – Easy Smart Searches Using Google Operators

Searching is a lot more complex than typing a word and shifting through results.  Using Google Search Operators, predefined instructions that focus the results anyone can gain insights into Google’s thoughts. SEO Research: Getting To What Google Really Knows SEO Research often begins and ends with one randomly found site’s auto audit. There are hundreds of sites that will tell you the character count of this field and that.  These are all good and well but they aren’t intelligent and offer a glimpse of how that tool sees your site, not Google.  In the end do you want to get an A grade by a random SEO tool or do you want to rank higher on Google?  These are not the same goals often.

Duplicate Content Kills Your SEO

Duplicate content is a threat to your SEO rankings but not in the way you think.  It is distracting you from stuff that actually matters.  Google has no penalty and notes much of the web is duplicate content, the question is whether your use of the content ads value. Google noted over ten years ago that its not an issue. Let’s put this to bed once and for all, folks: There’s no such thing as a “duplicate content penalty.” At least, not in the way most people mean when they say that.
