Infographic: The five most important SEO tactics?


This is an interesting infographic. The consensus opinion that I’ve read from most SEOs is that link building is still the most valuable SEO pursuit, but I don’t recall anyone being as bullish on authorship as this infographic is.

I’m curious to understand your take on this – if you had to focus in on a few SEO tactics, are these the five you’d choose?

    Great list – Google Authorship for sure is going to play a huge role in SEO (and force every blogger to pump up their Google+ profile).

    One tactic I would include is to add links to your website from your own blog posts on highly-targeted anchor text. It’s not going to give you the same boost as a link from an outside website, but Google will still use it as a signal – especially if you can do this multiple times. We did this for our article “How to Run a Facebook Contest” and now its’ #1 on Google for that keyphrase.
