    Number 5 on the video is by far the most important, in my mind.

    If the metrics for success have not been defined, it would make the task of succeeding online very difficult.

    The following steps in number 5 build the flow on effect from there onwards.

    Google’s basically made it so hard to play games that quality is the only thing that matters? Nice, but I wish I didn’t still see so many gameplayers winning in the SERPs at Google. Oh well.

    Daniel thank you for the post. From what I gathered Google is basically saying if you create your website with content valued by your desired audience then chances are your website/blog will get put in front of that audience by Google. Fairly simple.

  • Business Mind

    I agree, determining your goal is important to determine what type of campaign should be implemented for your business.

    These are some of the most common aspects of ranking on Google. I can see that Google is showing more relevance to social search integration into its search in order to boost Google Plus usage. Love the tips always Daniel, however what impact do you think this will have if your contents worth is determined by social shares.
