BusinessBolts.com, the Online Resource for eCommerce Companies, Releases Study Estimating 15.5% of a Web Page's Rankings Revolve Around Web Page Optimization

Free SEO tutorial aims to help small businesses navigate the complexities of getting high rankings

DENVER, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BusinessBolts.com published an online SEO tutorial estimating that 15.5% of a web page's rankings are determined by its page level optimization. Page level optimization includes factors like the title tag, meta tags, keyword density, and loading times of the web page.

The free tutorial looks at the ranking factors used by search engine algorithms. Google uses over 200 ranking factors in their algorithm. BusinessBolts.com broke down the biggest factors dealing with on-site optimization into 4 segments including: URL optimization, page optimization, content quality, and web site optimization.

An analysis was done where dozens of potential ranking factors were looked at and assigned a signal strength by an SEO professional. The signal strength indicators used were low, medium, and high.  A high signal strength meant that most of the pages ranking on page one of Google for that keyword include that specific component. A low signal strength meant the factor is considered in search engine algorithms, but probably only at a low level.

For example, the title tag of a web page was given a high signal strength while having the keyword in the meta tag was given a low signal strength.

Numbers were assigned for each factor based on the signal strength it was assigned. The breakdown for on-site optimization factors includes the following:

  • URL optimization - 4%
  • Page optimization - 15.5%
  • Content quality - 11%
  • Site optimization - 13.5%

According to Lisa Parmley, the Founder of Business Bolts Media, having a breakdown like this is useful because "many small businesses are short on time. They want to know what to focus on in order to see the fastest results. When it comes to on-site optimization, it's all the little factors that add up, but we've boiled down the hundreds of potential factors into a few dozen. Even that will help expedite the SEO process for many business owners trying to get their web pages ranking higher."

Overall the tutorial assigns 44% of the algorithm to on-site factors with the remaining 56% assigned to off-site factors including back links, brand mentions, and social shares.

The SEO tutorial is available for free. It covers why SEO is worthwhile, keyword research tools and tips, a detailed breakdown of web page optimization factors, and a guide to link building (specifically focusing on links that will last for the long-term). You can find out more here:

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
