    Exclamation Top Google ORGANIC Ranking Factors for 2013

    I know you are dying to see the new Local Search Ranking Factors. Don't worry, it's coming soon!

    But you guys all know how much Google organic ranking factors figure into the local search algo, so I want to share some recent studies that just came out that analyze the top ORGANIC ranking factors.

    Here are links to some of the studies and below are 2 infographics from SearchMetrics

    SEO Ranking Factors - Rank Correlation 2013 for Google USA 2013 (Search Metrics)

    The Periodic Table Of SEO Success Factors (Search Engine Lane)

    (If you are newer to organic SEO or want a refresher here is a companion guide from Search Engine Land that's very good. Search Engine Land’s Guide To SEO)

    This one just came out. Google Ranking Factors Post-penguin 2.0 (Netmark.com)

    I'm surprised to see how social signals are taking the cake in many of these studies.

    What factors are playing a role in top ranking pages?

    For me it's interesting to see how off-site factors are still king - considering many people have touted on-site factors as the primary key as of late.

    Create an optimized, well structured website and produce quality content, incorporating social media whenever possible. How hard can it be?
