We do this for members of a team that had ZERO marketing experience. A team of 6 people that share the social media buttons, boosting on Facebook and Guest blogging each other's content to get us HUGE SEO with normal sharing. See the 4 videos at the top of the front page and it explains. Getting some friends to Help you:
The below gives you the "technical reasons"
From: Shoutmeloud.com: Being a Blogger is not only about writing quality content anymore, but it’s also about implementing the best SEO practice, adding more value and social touch and do many more tasks. As all the bloggers have realized recently after the Google Penguin update. The importance of SEO has itself increased.
There is an obvious need to change our view to SEO. And why not learn from the only website that ranks 1 for almost 99% queries. Yes, you guessed it. It is Wikipedia, the largest online encyclopedia. Whenever you want to learn some new words. Wikipedia is the place.
Here is a Summary of Our Key Findings:
1. Backlinks remain an extremely important Google ranking factor. We found the number of domains linking to a page correlated with rankings more than any other factor.
2. Our data also shows that a site’s overall link authority (as measured by Ahrefs Domain Rating) strongly correlates with higher rankings.
3. We discovered that content rated as “topically relevant” (via MarketMuse), significantly outperformed content that didn’t cover a topic in-depth. Therefore, publishing focused content that covers a single topic may help with rankings.
4. Based on SERP data from SEMRush, we found that longer content tends to rank higher in Google’s search results. The average Google first page result contains 1,890 words.
5. HTTPS had a reasonably strong correlation with first page Google rankings. This wasn’t surprising as Google has confirmed HTTPS as a ranking signal.
6. Despite the buzz around Schema, our data shows that use of Schema markup doesn’t correlate with higher rankings.
7. Content with at least one image significantly outperformed content without any images. However, we didn’t find that adding additional images influenced rankings.
8. We found a very small relationship between title tag keyword optimization and ranking. This correlation was significantly smaller than we expected, which may reflect Google’s move to Semantic Search.
9. Site speed matters. Based on data from Alexa, pages on fast-loading sites rank significantly higher than pages on slow-loading sites.
10. Despite Google’s many Penguin updates, exact match anchor text appears to have a strong influence on rankings.
11. Using data from SimilarWeb, we found that low bounce rate was associated with higher Google rankings.
