Since infographics are all the rage right now, I wanted to share my new favorite from Search Engine Land. It’s the periodic table of SEO Ranking Factors, and I have to say it’s pretty much dead on. It is interesting to note how things have changed over even the last few years, where you now see the emphasis on quality, reputation and authority as opposed to quantity and saturation. Notice page speed making its way up the food chain as load time plays an increasingly important role in the user experience. Also, the growing importance of social media influence in organic rankings. Not only how many people have liked, engaged with or maybe even +1’ed your website/page, but counting the authority and reputation of these users within their own social space.
Nice work Search Engine Land and Column Five!
