    SEO tips that makes your site a Hummingbird favorite



    4.1.

    What happened exactly after the Hummingbird release, what SEO strategies don’t work anymore?

    Spinning articles:

    Before Google Panda days this tactic has worked a lot, but now using the same tactics will be the root cause for penalizing the website because Google hates useless contents and spun articles. It is better to stop investing in these software or any kind of services that spins our content.

    Buying links:

    Buying links is extremely risky for startup and well developed brands.With reference to the previous era (before google panda updates) the outcome from this process has been drastically dropped.

    Creating so-so content:

    Hummingbird updates came with the higher purpose of promoting good contents, so creating meaningless content using recycled article will never helps in promoting the brands.
    The winning SEO alternatives

    The following are the 10 SEO tactics that will please Hummingbird and also improve your Google ranking:

    1.Outstanding content


    4.2.


    A reader would spend time in the article if and only if it is longer and more informative. This is merit that Google takes to rank such websites higher.

    2.Effective keyword research



    4.3.

    The successful marketers are researching for actual topics rather than specific keywords and phrase. Google has set the preference level which changes the natural way of search for relevant information thus providing effecting keywords in the content which helps in your marketing process.

    3.Naturally used keywords

    Please consider the reader’s mindset also while writing a content, but not only focusing on SEO purpose alone. This will indirectly helps to obtain a higher page rank.

    4.Useful page titles

    Declaring a perfect titles is essential for more important topics. Choose a title which has a single focus of the topic in it.

    5.Page loading time

    Faster the loading time, the higher you would get preference. So, find the optimal hosting service to please the new algorithm.

    6.HTML tags

    Adding your keyword or phrases in an H1 heading tag will work fine but overdo this might end up with a penalty, rather than a higher ranking.

    7.URLs

    Using keywords or phrases in the URL of the page works, but is counterproductive when done in excess. For example a URL such as www.hostingserver.com/hostingserver may be a bit much.

    8.Mobile responsive web design



    4.4.

    It is must that your website should support mobile devices as most of the people migrate to mobile devices than the computers. In mobile devices your page will load faster and people will not be disappointed about the loading time.

    9.Guest posting


    4.5.

    We should be careful that Google cannot tolerate that you can send a link-ridden post into the blogosphere. The best way is to create content-driven articles for quality blogs and concentrate on sharing ideas.

    10.Internal links


    4.6.


    Internal linking is a winning option that readers would find useful as long as you are linking to content on you website that is related to the topic being discussed.

    Thanks for this write up mate. You really have lighten up on how to save your website from hummingbird update.
    It is really been dangerous to use duplicate content, focusing on link buying. The Google is taking on hand everything and it is really good to follow the natural way to develop traffic.

    Spinning the articles not only causes losing your visitors, but it leads to mistrust of the people who were engaged with your content.

    Even if you follow the entire rules, you may not succeed. On the other hand, some times you don't follow the basic rules yet, you can succeed. I was still new to online writing and I did not know about SEO or any other Google updates. I published an article "Home remedies for long and thick hair", last time I checked the article, if you ranked #4.

    We should use the content that is created by ourselves using our mind. Don't try to use ideas applied by others.

    Following the rules strictly may lead you to the success, however, being simpler in writing will not make you down.

    Quality content is the key to boost your ranking. Being sincere to what you are doing is also necessary for ranking up in google.

    Content will always remain the king. It does not matter how likely a search engine can change itself but the content is something that cannot be avoided at all. After the decades, It is getting more priority than to any other factors in SEO.

    I really like your thread. You tried to cover all aspects of SEO in regards to improvement of a website. We are really going to keep this noted.

    Very well explained about making your website getting liked by Google and not getting flagged by the Hummingbird. I would like to make a special point about spun articles. Yes I do agree that spinning software does have issues when it comes to generating spun content, but not most of the time. I do respect spinning software like The Best Spinner, Spinnerchief and so on, but I think Spin Rewriter 6.0 is an exception to Google Hummingbird. It uses ENL Semantic technology that no other software have in terms of spinning high quality content, plus it has high quality grammar, spelling and Copyscape premium checker too. So it means not all spinning software are bad for Google Hummingbird.

    spunned articles are tough to understand and they are not meant to be a story for using on blogs. You have saying while writing guest post we should be careful, but how? they use bots to find the spam of link building methods.

    I started my site about 5 years ago, and never did anything to try to cheat. I never even worked at creating backlinks, I just let them happen. I also focused on the quality of my articles and only played around a little bit with keywords. My rules are simple, make sure the keyword is in the URL, meta-title, meta-description, H1 title and then a few times in the article. But the most important thing is to write quality stuff.

    Every time Google does a major update, my article jump, and I am sure it is because I am now beating all those people who tried to cheat. And here is the thing, all that stuff about creating backlinks artificially is a lot of work.. that work is MUCH better spent making your articles better. So many of those guys spun articles, spammed backlinks, and now have nothing to show for it while my articles will be earning me money for many years to come.

    Thanks @selvaa for this wonderful post. This is more than amazing, we really appreciate you for taking this time out to write such a wonderful post.

    You just need to be sticky with every update any search engines made. You need to know what is their likes and dislikes, this will help you working and improving how good could you do to your website.

    Hummingbird is the latest update from Google, it simply asking people and webmasters to go more natural. The key to success in SEO is doing everything that seems like natural and practically loves by search engines.

    I second your thought and may add that another drawback of spinning content is coming with crap content, whether because the original article might be already a spun or low-quality piece of a PRL pack, or when spinning is made with either a plugins or automated software for easiness.

    Worst practice someone could have in mind even without keeping in mind Google algorithm facts.

    If we don't focus on hummingbird update but focus on entire optimisation, more proper results can be obtained. We don't know hen Google will update its algorithm and change the way of ranking. So all of our efforts can be lost forever. Therefore, we should just try to optimise the site as much as we can. Do proper ON-PAGE and OFF-PAGE SEO for our site. Never perform any black hat activity on the site at any cost. In this way, we can confirm long-term results, even after the latest update of Google.

    Thanks for writing this post OP. The Google Hummingbird update has definitely changed many things and I am now sure that many people will require to change their website quite a bit in order to fit the new requirements. Also, some people will have to change their mentality in order to become a hummingbird favorite by making more high quality articles.

    With the update of Hummingbird and penguin, Many websites got Hit by it. There rankings dropped down and they need to restore them by updating their websites with specific amendments as you have mentioned that will make there website a humming bird favorite. You need to stop building links to fast for that will weaken you rankings. :)

    Exactly, now with the Hummingbird program quality is a lot more important than quantity. I think this is actually a good thing as it will lead a lot more traffic to better websites, in my opinion.
