    QWhat will be the most important signals to observe about a piece of content that can most positively influence rank?

    Steve Rayson

    I dont look just at numbers, I look at authority.

  • #SEO2015

    QCan we definitively state that social signals are merely inferential for SEO or do you think that Google is actually using social signals as part of their algorithm for rank?

    QCan we definitively state that social signals are merely inferential for SEO or do you think that Google is actually using social signals as part of their algorithm for rank?

    Brian Massey

    Were going to continue to use the social as if it was one of the primary contributors to our growing search traffic.

    QWhat changes can we expect in marketing automation or email in 2015?

  • #SEO2015

    Nicole Munoz

    Were going to see more personalization

    and that would be the dynamic personalization based upon the behaviour of the visitor on the site.

    QWhat minimal investment in SEO do you recommend for small companies?

  • #SEO2015

    Nicole Munoz

    It comes down to the competition,A niche, a national level, a local levelis there a lot of competition?

    QWhat minimal investment in SEO do you recommend for small companies?Some keywords are going to be more competitive. So, its going to be different based upon each industry.

  • #SEO2015

    QWill link building continue to reign supreme as an SEO factor for Google in 2015 and what about beyond?

  • #SEO2015

    They will add more and more layers. Now that Twitter has their deal to be crawled by Google, perhaps there will be a little bit more social signals

    QWill link building continue to reign supreme as an SEO factor for Google in 2015 and what about beyond?

    Nick Chimonas

    I think its very unlikely that links are going to go away. All of the (Google) Algorithms will continue to be advanced.

  • #SEO2015

    QWill link building continue to reign supreme as an SEO factor for Google in 2015 and what about beyond?Its not that links dont matter anymore there is just a whole bunch of other factors that we need to be paying attention to.

    Nicole Munoz

    I completely agree, its not that your links are worthless theres just less weight per factor.

    QWill traffic acquisition become more difficult in 2015 and how will that affect conversion optimization?

  • #SEO2015Brian Massey

    QWill traffic acquisition become more difficult in 2015 and how will that affect conversion optimization?Experience is becoming more and more a factor in terms of your ability to rank

    So, increasing engagement is going to be more and more important. Have a site that is anticipating your visitors needs and giving it to them. Thats conversion optimization.

    QWhat tips can you offer those who work primarily in very competitive industries now?

  • #SEO2015

    QWhat tips can you offer those who work primarily in very competitive industries now?Get your conversion optimization sorted out!If they convert youve got more money to work with.Conversion, engagement, ground zero; then its the links..

    Nick Garner

    Google quality rate explicitly says what they look for in a trusted website. thats ground zero for good online brand.

    QWhat form of user engagement is important for a website in general?

  • #SEO2015

    QWhat form of user engagement is important for a website in general?

    Steve Rayson

    Youve got to make them take action on your site.

    You have to look at your sector. What type of content gets shares There is a tipping point, as soon as five influencers share a piece of content, it then breaks out and it almost goes viral. Weve looked at that quite consistently across millions of articles.

    QWill the old TLDs such as .gov, .edu, continue to be attractive link sources? And will new TLDs such as .ninja, ever grow to have any genuine value as link sources in 2015?

  • #SEO2015

    I think it could be more valuable because it is a .gov it is trusted by people and earns links. So inherently a lot of the .gov sites are older and have built up a link profile very naturally and so that might be valuable, but I dont think Google is saying oh its a .gov so its more trusted.

    QWill the old TLDs such as .gov, .edu, continue to be attractive link sources? And will new TLDs such as .ninja, ever grow to have any genuine value as link sources in 2015?

    Nicholas Chimonas

    I really dont think its more valuable simply because it is a .gov

    QWill content marketing continue to fill the pipeline for B2B?

  • #SEO2015

    QWill content marketing continue to fill the pipeline for B2B?

    Nicole Munoz

    Create content with keywords and headlines that answer questions.

    Move people through the buying stage. Publish that content, promote that content, and optimize it, doing it very strategically. Thats the huge difference between just content marketing and inbound marketing.

    QWill I need to prepare better to welcome more mobile conversion opportunities on my site in 2015?

    QWill I need to prepare better to welcome more mobile conversion opportunities on my site in 2015?

    Brian Massey

    The mobile traffic is the fastest-growing segment compared to desktop. So, clearly we cant ignore it in 2015.

    Weve got a conversion problem on a growing traffic segment that screams opportunity for us. You need to address this growing audience, we need to figure out new strategies for helping them buy and enter data and this year is going to be golden in terms of new technologies we can apply to that.
