Guide to Google’s Featured Snippets Optimization

Google’s featured snippets are selected search results that are featured on top of Google’s organic results below the ads in a box.

MOZ contributor Ann Smarty has published an in-depth article offering useful tips to optimize for Google’s featured snippets.

She says, “Multiple studies confirm that the majority of featured snippets are triggered by long-tail keywords. In fact, the more words that are typed into a search box, the higher the probability there will be a featured snippet.

It’s always a good idea to start with researching your keywords. Moz’s Keyword Explorer is a good place to start.

When performing keyword research with featured snippets in mind, note that:

  • Start with question-type search queries (those containing question words, like “what,” “why,” “how,” etc.) because these are the easiest to identify, but don’t stop there…
  • Target informational intent, not just questions. While featured snippets aim at answering the user’s question immediately, question-type queries are not the only types that trigger those featured results.”

He says, “Let’s dive into the steps you need to take to create a strong video SEO strategy for your business.

1. Choose a Platform

After you have identified your key objectives, it’s important to choose a platform that will best fit those needs. If you are looking to drive more traffic to your site, then you should probably stick with a platform like YouTube. But if you want to generate leads, you may want to look at other options including social networks like Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.

2. Plan Out Your Video Content

Next, you need to plan out how you will produce content. Will you be filming everything yourself? Are you going to hire someone to help you? Do you need to buy equipment? Once you have planned out your content creation process, you can begin planning your video SEO strategy.”

Google Shopping Free Listings: An In-Depth Guide [Guide]

Google Shopping is a comparison-shopping engine provided by Google that allows consumers to research, compare, and purchase products from a broad range of online vendors.

Search Engine Journal has published ‘Google Shopping Free Listings: An In-Depth Guide’.

Adam Heitzman says, “Merchants must submit a file known as a product feed to Google to have their products featured on Google Shopping.

The product feed contains all the relevant data from the merchant’s inventory, including product titles, descriptions, images, and prices.

Google’s algorithm processes this data to surface the merchant’s products whenever users search for related product queries.

When users click on one of these product listings, they’re taken to the merchant’s website to complete the purchase (provided the item can’t be bought directly through Google Shopping).

Until April 2020, merchants had no option but to pay for product listings in Google Shopping.

Since then, however, Google has introduced free product listings within the Google Shopping tab and Google Search.”

Growing Your Blog with Link Building

Link building is one of the most efficient ways to expand your blog. It helps you build SEO credibility for your blog.

Problogger has published an article on how link building can help you grow your blog.

The Problogger team says, “There are numerous benefits to link building and making it your number one SEO priority. Of course, content is still king, but if that content lacks link building, your website will suffer. In contrast, if you do manage to get a lot of backlinks from high-quality sites, you can reap many rewards, which include:

  • An increase in website traffic: Naturally, the more links you have on other sites, the more opportunities there are for people to find your website, which means more traffic. And an increase in traffic is a blogger’s dream because it means people are taking notice, and your site will likely gain in popularity.
  • Higher search rankings: Of course, the more backlinks you get on authoritative sites, the higher you will also rank in search results. We can’t emphasize this enough — Google prioritizes rankings for sites that are more authoritative on a subject. So, if a high-authority site links back to your site, Google will assume it means you are also an authority on the subject and will, thus, rank you higher in search results.”

Generate Better Leads with These Form Conversion Optimization Tips

Form conversion occurs when a visitor successfully submits a form on your website. This form can be for a newsletter, special offer, or to make a purchase.

HubSpot contributor Diana Urban has published an article featuring 10 form conversion optimization tips to generate better leads.

She says, “If you want to transform your underperforming lead-generation forms, you’ll need to give both your webpage and the form itself a refresh. Start with these 10 tips to optimize form conversion.

1. Move your form above the fold.

Conversion forms should be above the fold on your landing page. That means visitors shouldn’t have to scroll down the page to see your form. There’s no need to search to find your offer. Doing this removes friction from your lead generation process.

For example, visitors on the landing page below instantly know they’ll need to fill out the free demo form.

2. Make your form headline a call-to-action.

Encourage visitors to complete your form by making your headline a call-to-action. This tells your visitors exactly what they will get once they sign up.”
