Search engines are hard to crack. Everyone focuses on Google, but we really do not know the algorithm that they are using. People have done case studies, we have good ideas, and people share their “secrets” when they have success in ranking. That being said, Google is always changing it to prevent spammers and those gaming the system. Meanwhile, search engines like Bing are simply ignored in the search engine ranking discussions.

- Backlines are an important part of ranking, showing that other well established websites and blogs value your content.
- The average side speed of a URL is 1.2 seconds.
- The average blog article is 576 words.
