What SEO Tips are Crucial in 2016
With 2016 just around the corner, it is time to begin refining your
strategy for what comes next. Certain consistent aspects such as

speed will still apply, but a few newer elements will see an increase in
The first big one is mobile; it is critical to implement a strong
mobile design that seamlessly integrates all desktop features. Desktop

your site will increasingly drop in rank.
Next up are social signals. Social signals currently play a minimal role in SEO, but with Google now embedding Twitter tweets into search results, you had better expect social media to grow in importance as it relates to search visibility.
Lastly, video content will officially begin its takeover as the
preferred content medium. With platforms like Vine, Periscope, Snapchat,

as always, be ready to bend and flex because things will unforeseeably
shift throughout the year.
