What I got out of this interview about Best Google SEO Practices with Todd Tresidder:
1. Less Content Is Better
My previous thinking was that the more articles I publish, the more changes I’ll get visitors from Google searches. That is true, however, if your articles overlap with closely related content, it can and will hurt you.
With Google, its all about quality, not quantity.
Consolidate your content and get rid of out of date articles.
Trying to create your own backlinks, e.g. through guest posts on other people’s websites, will get results for you… but only temporarily. Your page one Google position will not stay there for long.
What really matters is if your content is the authority. If it is, then others will backlink to you and you’ll stay on page 1 of Google indefinitely.
