In his Learn Inbound talk, he takes a look at how businesses of all sizes can benefit from great search visibility by being comprehensive and thinking about the intention of the searcher.
- Don’t chase keywords with the content and pages you create – chase customers instead. Your aim should be to end the search by providing the most comprehensive resource possible.
- What Google really looks for in a website or brand online is expertise, authority and trust. Small businesses will typically struggle with authority and trust, so they should focus on demonstrating the areas they have a great deal of knowledge in.
- Build content around topics. Every page you build needs to be more comprehensive than other resources like Wikipedia which typically ranks very high for most search terms.
