At this same time, Matt Cutts announced on his Twitter account the Google Panda 4.0 update. Here are some tips to avoid being penalized by Google Panda or even for your users. Note that what I am going to tell is nothing new, and has been no major change in the SEO, just an update on an algorithm to enhance more the following:

Tips for Google Panda 4.0

Web / Blog for your users and not for the SEO. Quality + quantity

Sometimes the mistake of caring more about the SEO content that commits itself. It is essential to add value to your site and provide quality content to users, Panda really focuses on them to see if the content is of quality or not, because otherwise it would be impossible to verify all internet websites. Users will be those who stay longer on the Web, share content, interact on your site etc. And that, you can get it only by offering quality content that makes the user to perform these actions. Sure you’ve already heard that that content is king, then yes, it is.

Besides the quality, another aspect to take into account is the amount. On each page have to be at least 400 words, blending both text and videos or pictures.

Being origi Original Content SEOnal

You have to be original and create new content and not duplicate. Google to Bear (Panda) does not like to do copy and paste, in fact penalized. Soon you will serve copy content to the Web, but then mentions the source, the search engine does not want duplicate content so be original.

Tips for Google Panda 4.0

The fundamental social net works social networks

As I said before, one aspect where Google is based to see if the content is of quality is at the time that the web has been shared on the various social networks, I would say much more on Google+ and in his famous +1. That’s why you have to try and share the content you are active on social networks so you can more successfully shared your links. Essential is that you have no buttons to share and follow.

Some people confuse continue sharing, of little use to have 10,000 fans and have 10 shares. Find more sharing the fan, so far not been proven to have more fans then you have better position in Google, my opinion is that it does not affect anything.

On the Blog have already talked about the importance of social media in SEO.

These are 3 little tips but essential to be in the top positions of Google. Remember that he is the boss: Google and SEO and putting the game, and we have to comply.

Maybe it’s one of the forgotten because we focus more on getting links to our website or social media, but it is a very important and you have to implement as soon as possible. Here I list the most important actions to take:

Tips on on-site SEO

It is very important to put a title commensurate with what you say, but also including at least one Keyword to position for that particular page. Do not put all pages in the same title, if for example you are in the store section, instead of putting and you are using a specific keyword for that page.

Note that must have maximum 70 characters, for all the title is displayed, otherwise Google will cut it. Remember to put the title on your site, have to do with the tag:

You have to keep in mind that the description will only appear in search engines, and not on our page, so to the user it is not visible. Instead, the title itself that appears just above the browser, it is what the title of the tab.

Here you can see better what corresponds in reality:

That said, you have to create friendly URL, and you understand it better, I’ll give you an example:

You can see the difference, it is easier to position the second than the first, with the simple reason that we can attach the URL to our keywords we want. Do not overuse keywords, uses 3 to 6 words at most. Add a keyword to the URL and separate them with hyphens “-“. It is important to optimize either the URL, and especially do not make any mistakes in them, and if by some chance you decide to change the name of the URL, make sure you do a 301 redirect to the new URL.

Now it add titles to the text, it is very important to add header tags : H1, H2 and H3. Especially the first, in which you will have to add a keyword. Note that these labels are the owners and / or key phrases that you want to highlight on your page, it’s as if you will use manually in your editor a larger, bold font, but this way is easier and above all are labels accepted and are recommended by the guidelines of search engines.

Images must be well optimized for that, you can read the chapter: SEO Optimize images is important that a page has images, not only for positioning, but because it is more attractive to the user and lighter than display a page with all text.
