Search Engine Optimization is an area that is always changing. As new techniques and technologies evolve, so must your optimization strategy. Everyone wants to know where to find the latest trends in SEO. Why? Because staying on top of where SEO is going will give you an advantage over your competitors and position you to come out on top of the search engine results. So, if you are looking for some new information, try these techniques: go to the source, surf, socialize and stay tuned.
Go to the Source (The Search Engines)
One of the best ways you can stay current on how the search engines are ranking your results is to simply go to the search engines themselves and find the information. Google, Yahoo, and Bing are all very upfront about the latest trends they are using to help rank sites, and the latest innovations they are rolling out for those who are using their engine. They have special resources for webmasters and forums where they answer most questions. This is a great place to start your research.
Surf (for SEO Trends)
Alright, so maybe this seems a bit elementary. It is however, terribly important. Go to the major search engines and enter keywords like “SEO changes”, “what’s new in SEO“, or “latest SEO trends”. You will be amazed at how much information is out there! You have to sift through it to find the really good bits, but if something is referenced in several of the articles you read, you can bet it is something you should pay attention to.
A great way to find out about the latest trends in Search Engine Optimization is to ask other people. Talk to others in your industry to find out what new techniques they have heard about or are using. This is also a great way to get free feedback about how a technique is working. That way you can pick and choose which ones work the best and try them for yourself. It eliminates a great deal of trial and error. Also, hit up the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and join groups that are talking about SEO trends. You could even start a group yourself and wait for others to join in the conversation.
