Current scenario for ranking in SERP
Back in time when we started to optimise our website for the targeted keywords, Search Engines mostly used to consider the number of backlinks and keyword stuffing. The current scenario has changed completely. Now in order to provide more relevant search results to the visitors, search engine bots give priorities to content and user-friendliness of the website than just backlinks and domain authority.
I can give you a classic example to prove my point. A few weeks back one of the company under hospitality industry in Bangalore with college students as their target audience were searching for the “best SEO companies in Bangalore” to perform their SEO campaigns. Eventually, they landed upon Social Orange from one of our best long tail keyword (I will explain about the long tail keyword in my next blog) that gives us the right traffic. The customer submitted an inquiry, they liked our plan and we boarded them in.
Challenge – The client wants to rank on mobile search results asap since the college admissions dates are very close by, but their website domain authority is below 3 out of 100 and the domain is just a month old.
How did we overcome the challenge and help the client rank
The team SocialOrange drafted a smart plan to rank their website by without even changing anything on their homepage or inner pages. We just believed in our SEO mantra “Content is the King”

Where do companies go wrong with SEO
Search engines are smart enough and keep changing the factors of ranking by updating the algorithms.Many companies hire newbies and fail to provide proper training or SEO professionals having less experience for their in-house Digital Marketing team. Most of the time companies think that they just need to create backlinks and hence justify this hiring. This does not work any more and most of the time backfires as the less experienced team are focused only on creating backlinks by all means (Including irrelevant and spammy sites). Google Search Engines now with the help of its updated algorithms, penalizes backlinks from spammy sites or unnatural backlinks (Any links intended to manipulate PageRank or a site’s ranking in Google search results)
