Be a Human – Not a Bot – by Platosgroove

 

“Don't be a bot

Turn off the noise

Listen to the still small voice

It comes from a place, too deep for words

Beyond the binary bullshit

Real

Alive

Awake

Watchful

Aware

In the groove between the intervals

Beyond the waves is, stillness

Beyond belief, knowing

Souls converge, decide

There is only what is

Natural, Universal law

Is

All else is deception

Reject it. . .

Resonance

Seek the lost ones

Create

Express the unique nature of you

That is your only power

But don't despair

The Universe needs you

I need you

Be you and change the universe with me”

The image I’ve borrowed today to illustrate the problem of computer bots in social media is from Distil, a San Francisco company that has produced a free plugin to help detect the activity of computer bots. martechtoday.com/distil-buys-human-launches-free-bot-dete...

“…the Distil plug-in employs Are You a Human’s methods for separating carbon-based life forms from silicon-based imitations, using machine learning to detect biometric patterns in mouse activity and scrolling, as well as looking at browsers, devices and other factors for clues. The plug-in also includes Distil’s machine learning-based analysis of user profiles and behavior, browsers, and other indications.”

 

Recently I was involved in setting up the group Anti-Bots and Anti-Fake. www.flickr.com/groups/anti_bot_anti_fake_photo/

Our mission is not to eradicate the use of Bots on social media platforms like Flickr, but to inform and challenge people to recognise what we are losing in a system that allows machines to do our online work for us. It is committed to trying to make people face some hard questions about honesty and reality.

 

Now if you’re still reading this far, THANK YOU. Because you can be sure many people who either click on a photo and/or fav it are not really looking at it. We proved that recently with our Bot traps. But if you’ve taken the time to read this far, then you are obviously not a Bot user, and like us you probably loathe the idea that people are using Bots on Flickr.

 

In the next photo I will touch on the most ubiquitous Bot on Flickr, the Explore Bot (no friend of mine, but I’ll get to that). But you may ask, what difference does it make if a person uses a computer bot to do all their dirty work like scouring Flickr for faves and followers and thus reaping thousands (actually in many cases tens of thousands) of followers. You may say, oh well good luck to them, but then you realise that everyone’s credibility is undermined when the practice of using Bots is normalised. When do you decide to block someone because you suspect they use a Bot? Some “people” on Flickr are giving out 1,000 faves a day – try doing that manually and living a normal life. And why do it anyway, when they can’t have looked at the photos.

 

Let me give you an example I saw yesterday (all this information is freely available on every “About” page). This person joined Flickr about the same time as me (August 2019). As you can see I have just over 600 followers and follow slightly more than that. This guy IN ONE YEAR is followed by 14,800 and follows 107,000 (no that is not a misprint!). Try doing that manually. If you look at his photos there is nothing special to write home about and yet he has 13 Explores in one year.

 

There are actually Bot services now tailored towards getting Explored (surely that devalues everything about Explore?). Another person I looked at is also followed by tens of thousands and in over 5 years has given out the grand total of 63 faves. How generous of this person, but I suppose we can at least say he physically selected his faves.

 

And then you have the mindless canned comments. We all could name half a dozen “people” we see on just about every Flickr page we visit every day, no matter which group or genre of photography. Their Bot simply plows on faving or “commenting”, working on the principle that many of those favs or comments will turn into followers.

 

Then you have the follow and drop Bots. You know it’s happened to you too. Someone follows you one day and drops you the next. That’s a pattern of “behaviour” we’ve discovered, because a large number of people who were initially followed will have followed them too and as you know we never learn from Flickr who has unfollowed us. So they get away with it most of the time.

 

But the saddest part of this whole process is we are losing touch with REAL human contact. Surely the great benefit of Flickr is uniting people of similar interests. But fakery seems to overwhelming things at the moment. The link to this article is interesting, because it tells us (and this was 2018) that the internet will soon be dominated by Bots talking to Bots. singularityhub.com/2018/07/07/bot-vs-bot-will-the-interne...

 

Seriously, what is the point if no human beings are looking at our photos? Someone claims to have 15,000 followers but follows 200. Silly 14,800 people if you ask me, because you can be darn sure this person is not looking at your pictures. Any faves or comments are most likely generated by his computer bot. But if we turn a blind eye to all this then the wrong people are winning the prestige. They are buying it through a Bot user subscription service, and not having to slave over their contact list day in day out.

 

Action strategy:

(1) Look closely at a person’s followers stats. If there is a massive imbalance of followers compared to those being followed and they don’t follow you, UNFOLLOW them, because it is highly unlikely they care about anything other than their numbers.

(2) On the profile page you can see how many faves have been given out over the time they’ve been on Flickr. If you see someone who has given out 1 million faves you simply know this cannot be done. It has to be a Bot service. So block him.

(3) Join us in our quest at: www.flickr.com/groups/anti_bot_anti_fake_photo/

 

We can reclaim a little dignity for ourselves by returning to real human to human interaction on Flickr. Whenever we suspect a Bot. Block!

   

Night photography in the city, something I love to do as you may know. Found a new spot during the day so came back.

Tower Bridge (built 1886–1894) is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London, over the River Thames. It is close to the Tower of London, from which it takes its name. It has become an iconic symbol of London. The bridge consists of two towers tied together at the upper level by means of two horizontal walkways, designed to withstand the horizontal forces exerted by the suspended sections of the bridge on the landward sides of the towers. The vertical component of the forces in the suspended sections and the vertical reactions of the two walkways are carried by the two robust towers. The bascule pivots and operating machinery are housed in the base of each tower. The bridge's present colour scheme dates from 1977, when it was painted red, white and blue for the Queen Elizabeth II's silver jubilee. Originally it was painted a mid greenish-blue colour.

www.flickr.com/photos/simon__syon/

Last week I decided to open an account with 500px.com, under the name "nightscape" (500px.com/nightscape), just to showcase my NightScape style of photography. I also registered the domain name, www.NightScapePhotos.com, to point directly to my 500px page.

 

After reviewing 500px for several months, I put up just five images to start with; and within 18 hours, my photo of Double Arch had been voted ("liked") and favored to the most Popular position, reaching a "99.6" rating. I stayed in this position for about an hour, and somewhere on the first page for several hours. This screen capture shows my hour of fame. During that short time I received over 1,500 views, compared to 453 views on Flickr (over a period of 28 days)! Reaching one of the 50 pages of "Popular" is sort of like being Explored on Flickr. And being chosen to be on the Editors' Choice pages is sort of like appearing on Flickr's Front Page.

 

Flickr vs. 500px: The big difference between the two is Social Networking. Flickr is more about social networking, and 500px is more about showcasing your images. Remember, I reached the most popular position on 500px within 18 hours, without having enlisted a single follower or contact! Flickr's Explore and Interestingness algorithms often reward social networking more often than quality.

 

Format differences: There are several formatting differences I like about both Flickr and 500px. 500px is more about showing off or showcasing your images. Thumbnails are huge on this site. Display images are 900 pixels vs. Flickr's 600 pixels. Flickr is more about sharing images. If you are into the Creative Commons thing, Flickr allows you to share even your original file. 500px has greater anti-piracy protections than Flickr. (I looked into 500px's source code and could find no possible way to download a large image file, other than through a screen capture. With Flickr, it's easy -- there's even a third party app out there to help make downloading large and original size images easier!) There are no groups or pools on 500px, but you can follow and comment on other photographer's images (you can even comment on their "wall" -- a feature Flickr does not have). One thing I really like about 500px is that their comment input box is always right below the image -- you do not have to scroll to the bottom of the page in order to make your comment (like Flickr requires you to do).

 

Flickr tries to keep commercialism to a minimum. You are not supposed to have links from your image pages to a personal or commercial website (but you can do this on your profile page). On 500px, your home page and the photo stream of your thumbnail images are combined. Links to your website, your Flickr account, you blog, your Twitter account, and etc. are encouraged by providing place holders in your "settings" page.

 

Scoring: Popularity on these two sites are scored quite differently. Flickr's "Interestingness" algorithms is all about who comments and faves your images. New acquaintances, who fave and comment, rank you higher than old friends. Faves rate higher than comments. A high number of views can increase you interestingness, but they are not as important as faves or comments.

 

On 500px it's mostly about having your image getting "Like"d. "Faves" on 500px do improve your rating, but are more for your personal record (to keep track of what you like from the portfolios of other photographers). Unlike Flickr, faves, comments, and views have little effect on an image's rating. Comments do let you know who is following you, and who is probably "like"ing you. "Like"-ing an image is the biggest rating factor here. Getting your image liked early has the most effect on its rating. Likes on the first day quickly increase your rating. A similar number of likes the next day will have a lower effect. The longer your image remains in your portfolio, the less effect each like makes on your rating. An image that scores above 85 will often make it to at least the 50th page of "Popular". An image that scores above 99 will often make it to the first page of Popular. However, that same image will often drop about 5 points each day, unless it continues to receive a high number of additional "like"s. In other words, If an image was rated 99 on its first day, and no one continued to like it after that, it would drop below 85 and probably fall off Popular within three days. This is why an image may start out the first day with a rating of 85, and be down to about 45 a week later.

 

Free vs. Paid accounts: Both Flickr and 500px offer free accounts. Flickr's Pro upgrade is only $24.95 per year and it allows me to archive my original files, something that I really find attractive since I've had several hard drive crashes over my computer life-time-experience! 500px's Plus and Awesome upgrades cost $19.95 and $49.95 per year respectively. The Awesome upgrade has several interesting features, i.e. premium portfolios, custom domains, Google Analytics, and the option to completely remove the 500px branding label (call "White Label") from your portfolio. I did not see the ability to archive and retrieve your original image file like you can on Flickr.

 

Conclusion: Does thais mean that I'm going to drop Flickr and move over to 500px? Of course not! I love Flickr and the people I associate with here. However, there is a much higher percentage of professional photographers on 500px, and spending some time browsing there can really inspire and get your creative juices going! Despite some of Flickr's quirks, it still gives my images the best overall exposure to the Internet world. My research shows that Google and Yahoo tend to index Flickr pages more often than they do 500px pages; and there are currently more photo researchers (looking to purchase images) searching Flickr than 500px. Flickr's association with Getty Images is also a plus. I will continue to use Flickr for socializing within the photo community and for full-resolution archiving of my images; but, I recommend you consider 500px as a place to showcase and promote some of your best images.

 

Warning about nudity on 500px: There seems to be a lot more nudity on 500px than on Flickr. Even though you can click on and off the "Show nude" check box, some 500px photographers do not consider their undressed models to fall into that category. This means that some "R" rated images do pop up -- more often than on Flickr (who seems to be better policed in this area).

At Blue Fountain Media, Google Analytics is one of our most important tools. www.bluefountainmedia.com

Have you checked out Google Analytics? I have been using it for about two months on my blog, and it is very interesting to track...

 

Sure, it's not about quantity, but I do like the graphs :)

 

The Map Overlay may be my favorite of all! how many people visited the site from Sri Lanka? you can find it out with Google Analytics!

 

This is what I've been working on for the last year with the Measure

Map team. I wrote more on my blog and the Official Google Blog.

Just got my new businesscard in the mail! No fancy-pants cards, just my name, phone mail en web. On the back is a QR code which leads to a unique webpage designed for mobile. Tracking it via a Google Analytics campaign it gives me pretty good statistics on visits.

Years ago I used to only use Google to do internet searches. Slowly but surely though Google has been taking over more and more and more of my computing life. This is not a bad thing, this is a good thing. Google makes things that make my life easier and their corporate values are more in synch with my own than most publicly traded companies. I've especially noticed in the past six months that the trend of Google taking over my computing life has accelerated dramatically. This could have to do with the time I've been spending on Buzz, but some of the changes (like changing my internet browser) have involved big chunks of my computing experience.

 

Below is a loose chronology of the evolution of my experience with Google Products.

 

1. Search (can't remember exactly when, but years ago), got off Yahoo pretty early in the game and switched to Google. Google has the best search on the web today. I appreciate Google's more open nature than other search engines and their better track record when it comes to keeping the web uncensored.

 

2. Blogger. Used Blogger since 2003. Abandoned Blogger for WordPress last year, mostly due to Blogger's inability to deal effectively with comment spam.

 

3. Google Analytics. Still use this. It's free which is good. I've never really gotten what I want and need out of this product though. It's complicated to build things for me. The two most important things I want from a stats package are the number of page views and referring url information. My view I'm most interested in is the past 24 hours. Before Analytics I used Sitemeter. I liked Site Meter's analytics product much more, but you have to pay for that and Google Analytics is free.

 

I get the sense that Google Analytics is a bit like Photoshop for me. You can do anything and everything with it, but I'm still only using about 2% of its true potential.

 

4. Google Docs. I'm a lightweight user of word processing and spreadsheets, so this works just fine for me. Replaces the need to buy expensive software from Microsoft to do this sort of work for the casual user like me.

 

5. Google Maps. I used to use Mapquest and Yahoo Maps. Now I use Google Maps exclusively. It's the best mapping software on the web. I use it *very* heavily when traveling.

 

6. YouTube. Like everybody I'm on it. I rarely use it though. Occasionally I'll consume content on it. It takes so much time to watch YouTube videos though. It's probably the internet site that my kids use more than any other site on the internet though. My son Jackson has spent hours on there learning how to do Yo Yo tricks. One of these days I'm going to have to get him a Google Yo Yo. Actually I just ordered him a green one and a yellow one. He'll love them. :) I used Google Checkout to buy them from Google (not sure why the shipping charge is more than the yoyos though).

 

7. Google Earth. I don't use Google Earth a lot. I find it a bit unweildy actually. But I do use it to do the geotagging with Geotagger for my photos.

 

8. Gmail, part 1. Unfortunately I was late to the game with Gmail. So alas, I'm thomashawk22 instead of thomashawk. I got a gmail account and then never really used it. A few years back though I was getting so much spam email that I began filtering thomashawk.com email through gmail first to filter out all of the spam. That worked tremendously well. My spam pretty much went away entirely overnight. So I was using Google gmail as a passive filter for my Mac mail reader for about 2 years. Part 2, later.

 

In the past six months.

 

9. Google Buzz. Buzz has really become my primary social network. I still use a number of different social networks (Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, Friendfeed), but Buzz now gets the bulk of my social networking time and attention. One of my favorite things about Buzz is that it shows photos *really* well. You can feed your Flickr feed into it and if people click on the thumbnails they blow up huge to get an easy big view. There's a link to Flickr included that I can cmd click to go fave the photo on Flickr too.

 

The majority of my faves that I'm faving on Flickr these days are coming from Google Buzz. If you haven't hooked your Flickrstream up to a Buzz account yet you are missing out. :) Even if you aren't going to use Buzz, don't have time for another social network, etc. You should still at least hook up your Flickrstream to it so that people can see your Flickr photos there and get back to your stream via Buzz.

 

10. PicasaWeb. I've had an account on Picasa for years, but just never really used it. I've started using it much more though. Presently I'm maxed out my free storage there so I'm just using it to host small sized screenshot files and deleting my larger high res photos as I need space. I've thought about paying the $5 to buy more ($5 is really totally insignificant for me to pay) but I need Picasa to convince me as a product first why I should do that.

 

If Picasa had photostreams and SmartSet technology I'd totally pay. But as it stands today, it's too much work organizing my photos there manually without SmartSets and it feels to me like the photosharing community is still very much at Flickr. I do use the service though almost daily to host my screenshots.

 

11. Google Profiles. I like having a profile page on Google and look forward to seeing them continue expanding this product. You can find my Google Profile here.

 

12. Google Chrome. After a rocky marriage with Firefox for many years we finally split up a few months ago. Google Chrome is just a far better, faster, more stable web browser.

 

13. GMail, part 2. I haven't opened my Mac Mail application for about a month now. I've been consuming all of my email directly from gmail on the web. Mostly it's just faster to do email this way. So now it is not only my passive spam filter, it's my main mail application that I use to consume all of my email.

 

14. Picnik. Probably technically not a Google Product yet, but acquired by Google recently so I'm including it. I just bought a Pro account there for $24.95 for a year. I did it just because I was curious about what you could do there more than anything. I don't think I'll renew it after my year is up based on what I saw. I didn't really see anything there that I can't already do in Lightroom or Photoshop. But for someone who doesn't want to spend the money for Lightroom/Photoshop, this seems like an excellent way to go. You really can do quite a bit for $25 a year.

 

I need to play around with Picnik a bit more though. Maybe it will grow on me. Google should consider giving away the Pro version in Picasa to get more people on there.

 

15. Google Calendar. After using 30 Boxes for many years I switched to Google Calendar. Not sure why really. 30 Boxes was working just fine. I think I like Google Calendar better. I like how now that I've synched it up with my iPhone that I get a little notification from my iPhone calendar 10 minutes before I've got an appointment.

 

16. Google Chrome URL shortener. this is kind of a minor little tool. Not a product really. But I love it so much that I wanted to include it. You just click on a little icon in Chrome and it automatically copies a shorter url to your clipboard. :)

 

The future.

 

So what's next for me in terms of adopting Google products. I'm not sure exactly but here are a few ideas.

 

Android. I suspect that when my contract with AT&T ends in July that I'll likely switch to a Google phone of some sort. They seem to be ahead of Apple right now, are a more open company. And I can't stand how poor AT&T's 3G network is in San Francisco.

 

Chrome OS. This will be an interesting one. Switching your OS is huge. It took me years to get off Windows and on to my Mac about 5 years ago. Overall I'm pretty happy with my Mac. Still I paid over $3,000 for my last MacBook Pro. Chrome would seem to make computing cheaper. I don't know enough about Chrome to really blog about it, but if I can install it on my MacBook Pro when it comes out (later this year?) to check it out I definitely will. Apple's OS is pretty damn solid though, so I think this switch for me will be a harder one.

Be a Human – Not a Bot – by Platosgroove

 

“Don't be a bot

Turn off the noise

Listen to the still small voice

It comes from a place, too deep for words

Beyond the binary bullshit

Real

Alive

Awake

Watchful

Aware

In the groove between the intervals

Beyond the waves is, stillness

Beyond belief, knowing

Souls converge, decide

There is only what is

Natural, Universal law

Is

All else is deception

Reject it. . .

Resonance

Seek the lost ones

Create

Express the unique nature of you

That is your only power

But don't despair

The Universe needs you

I need you

Be you and change the universe with me”

 

steemit.com/spirituality/@platosgroove/be-a-human-not-a-b...

 

This image is borrowed to illustrate the problem of computer bots in social media from Distil, a San Francisco company that has produced a free plugin to help detect the activity of computer bots. martechtoday.com/distil-buys-human-launches-free-bot-dete...

“…the Distil plug-in employs Are You a Human’s methods for separating carbon-based life forms from silicon-based imitations, using machine learning to detect biometric patterns in mouse activity and scrolling, as well as looking at browsers, devices and other factors for clues. The plug-in also includes Distil’s machine learning-based analysis of user profiles and behavior, browsers, and other indications.”

 

Recently I was involved in setting up the group Anti-Bots and Anti-Fake. www.flickr.com/groups/anti_bot_anti_fake_photo/

Our mission is not to eradicate the use of Bots on social media platforms like Flickr, but to inform and challenge people to recognise what we are losing in a system that allows machines to do our online work for us. It is committed to trying to make people face some hard questions about honesty and reality.

 

Now if you’re still reading this far, THANK YOU. Because you can be sure many people who either click on a photo and/or fav it are not really looking at it. We proved that recently with our Bot traps. But if you’ve taken the time to read this far, then you are obviously not a Bot user, and like us you probably loathe the idea that people are using Bots on Flickr.

 

In the next photo I will touch on the most ubiquitous Bot on Flickr, the Explore Bot (no friend of mine, but I’ll get to that). But you may ask, what difference does it make if a person uses a computer bot to do all their dirty work like scouring Flickr for faves and followers and thus reaping thousands (actually in many cases tens of thousands) of followers. You may say, oh well good luck to them, but then you realise that everyone’s credibility is undermined when the practice of using Bots is normalised. When do you decide to block someone because you suspect they use a Bot? Some “people” on Flickr are giving out 1,000 faves a day – try doing that manually and living a normal life. And why do it anyway, when they can’t have looked at the photos.

 

Let me give you an example I saw yesterday (all this information is freely available on every “About” page). This person joined Flickr about the same time as me (August 2019). As you can see I have just over 600 followers and follow slightly more than that. This guy IN ONE YEAR is followed by 14,800 and follows 107,000 (no that is not a misprint!). Try doing that manually. If you look at his photos there is nothing special to write home about and yet he has 13 Explores in one year.

 

There are actually Bot services now tailored towards getting Explored (surely that devalues everything about Explore?). Another person I looked at is also followed by tens of thousands and in over 5 years has given out the grand total of 63 faves. How generous of this person, but I suppose we can at least say he physically selected his faves.

 

And then you have the mindless canned comments. We all could name half a dozen “people” we see on just about every Flickr page we visit every day, no matter which group or genre of photography. Their Bot simply plows on faving or “commenting”, working on the principle that many of those favs or comments will turn into followers.

 

Then you have the follow and drop Bots. You know it’s happened to you too. Someone follows you one day and drops you the next. That’s a pattern of “behaviour” we’ve discovered, because a large number of people who were initially followed will have followed them too and as you know we never learn from Flickr who has unfollowed us. So they get away with it most of the time.

 

But the saddest part of this whole process is we are losing touch with REAL human contact. Surely the great benefit of Flickr is uniting people of similar interests. But fakery seems to overwhelming things at the moment. The link to this article is interesting, because it tells us (and this was 2018) that the internet will soon be dominated by Bots talking to Bots. singularityhub.com/2018/07/07/bot-vs-bot-will-the-interne...

 

Seriously, what is the point if no human beings are looking at our photos? Someone claims to have 15,000 followers but follows 200. Silly 14,800 people if you ask me, because you can be darn sure this person is not looking at your pictures. Any faves or comments are most likely generated by his computer bot. But if we turn a blind eye to all this then the wrong people are winning the prestige. They are buying it through a Bot user subscription service, and not having to slave over their contact list day in day out.

 

Action strategy:

(1) Look closely at a person’s followers stats. If there is a massive imbalance of followers compared to those being followed and they don’t follow you, UNFOLLOW them, because it is highly unlikely they care about anything other than their numbers.

(2) On the profile page you can see how many faves have been given out over the time they’ve been on Flickr. If you see someone who has given out 1 million faves you simply know this cannot be done. It has to be a Bot service. So block him.

(3) Join us in our quest at: www.flickr.com/groups/anti_bot_anti_fake_photo/

 

We can reclaim a little dignity for ourselves by returning to real human to human interaction on Flickr. Whenever we suspect a Bot. Block!

After several years of putting off the trip for various reasons, market demand, google analytics -- and several direct requests -- ultimately determined that it made sense for TIA International Photography to finally visit the City of Miami.

 

This photo was taken on my first night in the city. I like this image because it essentially represents my initial encounter with America’s eighth largest metropolitan area and gateway to Latin America, pondering and anticipating the multiple photo opportunities to come for the next seven days.

 

I hope to use the month of May to get my best images of Miami, Miami Beach, and Key West onto my official website portfolio. Please stay tuned. Until then, enjoy this preview of what’s to come.

Another screenshot from one of our clients that had tremendous SEO (Search Engine Optimization) growth through a couple of on page optimization strategies. We did no link building for this to occur. Their backlink profile was already very strong, just needed to make a couple of minor adjustments in order to increase their web traffic.

Have you checked out Google Analytics? I have been using it for about two months on my blog, and it is very interesting to track...

 

Sure, it's not about quantity, but I do like the graphs :)

Strangely enough, since the start of the holiday period, the MuseScore download rate has been going up. With 676 downloads on the 21st of July, this is even a new all time day record.

 

Analyzing Google Analytics for musescore.org, it looks that the spike comes from direct traffic, from Spanish speaking visitors. Perhaps a school has downloaded MuseScore on all their computers for the next academical year?

Think about the last time you were looking for something on the internet?

 

How did you find what you were looking for?

 

Because 93% of all online experiences begin with a search engine like Google, ranking high on SERP is PRETTY MUCH essential to driving more sales and staying on the minds of your readers.

 

A recent research study by Hubspot, it was revealed that 75% of users don’t even crawl past the first page of their search results.

 

This is why smart marketers are now spending more on SEO as it enhances their websites and makes it better for the users. Optimized websites focused on delivering a quality experience are now heavily rewarded by Google.

 

For example, Belden Brick Company in Ohio was able to increase their website visits by over 85% in less than a year by using these methods! They created a new lead generation campaign and added a global header and footer for their clients that added new products and kept their website cohesive and updated at all times.

 

Let’s go over more reasons why you should consider doubling down on SEO in 2019.

 

BEING IN ALIGNMENT WITH SEARCHER’S INTENT

 

SEO allows you to know your users’ search intent. This comes handy when creating pages that drive organic traffic.

 

CoSchedule saw a 594% rise in traffic when they aligned SEO content strategy with searcher intent.

 

Tools like Google Analytics can help you understand what your target searcher's intent is. The game is on once you know what your users are looking for.

 

KEYWORDS ARE STILL RELEVANT

 

It's not that keywords are not important anymore, just that they are used differently than they used to be. Stuffing keywords and simply throwing them at random places is a thing of the past, and Google may also penalize you for it.

 

Relevant keywords will get you more qualified traffic. Meaning you convert more even if your website has fewer visitors.

 

With extensive keyword research, Maldive Travellers’ increased the number of per day visitors by over 40%. Using the right combination of long tail keywords also brought more returning customers to the website.

 

Remember that Google makes frequent algorithm updates not to be hard on website owners. They are simply trying to create a better experience for their users. Which is why you need an ever evolving perspective on SEO to keep up with these changes.

  

FOCUS ON A MORE EXPERIENCE-CENTRIC WEB

 

User behavior is now trending towards a more immersive and informative approach. Many companies are now investing in PWAs and AMPs to provide their users with a seamless browsing experience.

 

Complete Plumbing Resource used SEO to promote their brand online to customers. Having quite a few products to showcase, they created a user-friendly website. The company saw an increase in total sales by over 2000%. Not only this, their overall organic traffic and leads also had upward moving graphs.

 

Google understands and values a good experience for users. Things like load speed, a clean and organized design, mobile responsiveness, bounce rate, and more all play a significant role.

 

Therefore, you shouldn’t just work on improving your website for a higher conversion rate. Working on the user experience will actually get you more traffic per Google! This is why SEO is so important - the impacts can be felt in many parts of your traffic and sales funnels.

  

WELCOMING REAL SPEECH PATTERNS

 

More and more people are now trying to access voice search options and incorporating real speech patterns into keywords.

 

These natural patterns of speech are vital to SEO as mobile searchability is becoming more widespread. And another reason for both short and long-tail keywords to mimic real speech patterns.

 

SEO is definitely important, but let's just say that the rules of playing the game have changed. Search engines are now focusing on giving users a valuable experience, so the more optimized your website is, the better chances you have of succeeding.

 

If we are considering the relevance of SEO in 2019, we’d argue that it’s actually more important than ever before. As search engines get smarter, they are always rewarding the better websites.

 

Remember that Google is also a business and that too a very successful one. If it fails to provide relevant search results, people wouldn’t use it.

 

Solid SEO practices make sure that your brand is found organically. Businesses need to understand exactly how and why Search Engine Optimization is changing, and what they need to do to keep up with these changes
