Gaming Google? SEO? 13 Key Factors Of The Google Algorithm That Matter

Ain’t nobody got time for that.

So let’s just cut to the chase and break down the 13 factors of the current Google Algorithm that matter.

Have you heard that in order to rank well for Google, we’re talking first page results here, there’s at least 206 factors at play that go into the Google Algorithm to determine whether your site should be first on the first page of Google? What will it take to rank ahead of your competition and ahead of authority sites such as Wikipedia and CNN? Well, there’s actually more than 200 factors at play. But fortunately, you don’t have to worry about knowing all 200 of those factors, in fact, after doing SEO for more than 20 years, my team and I have learnt to focus on the key factors that work to bring your site to page 1 of Google.

What’s it going to take?

Join me for a presentation as I break down the 200 factor algorithm into the top 13 factors that are key.
