SEM Video: Debunking Ranking Factor Myths

Posted by @ 2:18 am

At the recent SMX Advanced conference, Mike McDonald from WebProNews fame caught up with Rand Fishkin to talk ranking factors.

Rand, the man behind SEOmoz, shared some of the insights discussed in the Ranking Factors panel he was on at the SMX conference.

Mike and Rand have a candid chat about the ranking factors that still continue to generate the main results, but more interestingly, shared some of the ranking factor myths that the panel dispelled.

To wet your appetite, one of the contentious ranking factors that they dispelled was keyword density. According to the panel’s research, apparently Keyword Density has little impact on ranking.

Watch the video to uncover what the panel shared and the ranking factor myths they debunked.
