If you’re in a competitive industry and trying to achieve SEO success simply optimising your website for a set of keywords may not be enough. Google’s algorithms also use a number of off page factors to decide which sites should rank above others.
It has long been known that the number of relevant and authoritative domains linking to you are the major factor that boosts your websites external reputation, but there has been much conjecture about the effects of other external factors such as social signals and link building schemes.
What should you believe and what should you ignore?
Unfortunately Google doesn’t disclose the full algorithm they use but they have made a number of statements on their own blog and through social media comments that have enabled the SEO industry to form some kind of educated guess as to what helps and what doesn’t.
Northcutt have collated multiple sources of data into one huge study (which you can view here) and the guys at Red Website Design have summarised their information in the infographic below.
In short, as Google have said many times, create great content that people will naturally want to link to and avoid paid link schemes like the plague.

If you’re a website owner one of your primary goals will be to optimise your site to rank higher on Google and increase organic traffic.
When it comes to optimising your website content and other on page factors it’s important to not only understand what can positively affect your rankings, but also what can harm them.
On one hand, not optimising your site enough will mean Google won’t see you as relevant, whereas over optimisation will more than likely lead to Google marking your site down. For real search engine success you need to achieve a delicate balance.
This isn’t easy when you consider there are a reported 200+ ranking factors built within Google’s algorithms. The big question is which of those do we have cast iron evidence to support, and which are outright myths?
Northcutt have recently published some detailed findings which argue the case for each. They’ve labelled them on a sliding scale with those that have been confirmed by Google as having an effect ranked as “Concrete” and those with no evidence at all ranked as “Myth”.
You can either take a read of the extensive work directly on the Northcutt website here, or you can view an easier to follow summary in this infographic from Red Website Design.
