As a Freelance SEO Consultant, I often get asked by new start ups to design and build a new website that will both serve the business and be SEO future-proofed. I also get asked by established companies to re-design existing websites that are not ranking in the search engines or are looking a little bit dated. Unfortunately, nine times out of ten, when this conversation begins, I ask what I believe to be the fundamental questions only to be met with blank faces and vacant stares.

Google is on a mission. Yes, I know what you’re thinking; world domination. Although it may seem like that at times, Google’s more laudable raison d’être, so they would have us believe, is to provide the multitudinous users of the World Wide Web with access to the most accurate information and the most unique and original content.

Personally, there’s nothing I enjoy more than optimising the content of a landing page. Landing page optimisation is one of those fiddly tasks however if you do your prep work and don’t go live too early you can really make it work and get your website ranking highly without doing any offsite work (considering I occassionally work as a freelance seo consultant it’s a good job I like doing it!)

When I started working as an seo consultant all those years ago I never imagined that by 2013 I’d have to unpick all the hard work I’d put in for my clients over the years, furthermore I’ve been speaking to a number of people looking for someone to sort out the link mess they’ve been left by their previous agencies – it doesn’t make it any easier when you’re having to unpick someone else’s work either!

Over a year ago now a documented turned up that intrigued the search marketing community, this document confirmed for the first time that Google did indeed employ people for ranking (or at least quality) factors, the document was basically a handbook for the quality team. Last night, Razvan Gavrilas from Cognitive SEO announced that he’d discovered a new version of the Google rating document dated June 2012.
As a freelance seo consultant it’s important to understand Google mindset and these kind of little slip ups (let’s face it this shouldn’t have got into public hands), this kind of document is therefore really useful. Overall, the document is largely unchanged from last year however there are some notable amendments.
