Intense Relevance: The New SEO Paradigm

As search engines get smarter, SEO tricks just won't cut it.

Intense Relevance: The New SEO Paradigm

Forget generating backlinks and submissions to zillions of mindless directories. As search engines get increasingly smarter and the new Web is gradually more humanized than ever before, search engine optimization is now a whole new ball game.

The key to a successful SEO strategy is to actually be as human as possible. Don’t think of a search engine as a cold, calculating nasty robot. Think of it as a human librarian, or a literary critic. The reason for this is that search engines are consistently improving their semantic processing and are learning to think more and more like the way we humans do.

Additionally, we know that one specific search engine, Google, uses a team of hundreds of human website reviewers to vet through thousands of websites in an effort to produce a truly relevant, competent web index. This is important, because the whole purpose of search engines is to get the searcher to exactly what they want, filtering through piles of irrelevant information that may well be relevant elsewhere.

Successful SEO

What SEO now means is to generate exceptionally relevant content. Intense relevance is now key to a successful digital marketing strategy, to make sure you produce exactly what your target audience needs, and that you keep your web page coherent, your content concise and limited to the context at hand. This is important, because extending your subject matter to include more ideas and information will dilute the perceived importance of your page to the subject at hand, thereby harming your search engine ranking with regards to that particular subject or keyword(s).

Intense Relevance

Intense relevance means that you go out of your way to ensure that:

  • You have a well defined target audience for a particular web page
  • You take a web page at a time, recognizing its unitary value independent of the website
  • Ensure that the information you present in your webpage does justice to its title
  • Ensure the title does justice to the information within the page
  • Ensure congruence of all page elements, including title, Meta description, the body of the document, and the captions within.
  • Finally, you ensure that the facts you present actually provide value to the reader. This could be a new twist on previously existing information, or could help a reader learn something entirely new.

What about links?

We do know that Google counts incoming links to contribute to PageRank. Our answer: DON’T waste your time on them, because they’ll come naturally when you write valuable content that people love and want others to read. When it comes to SEO, it’s largely a self-fulfilling prophecy: quality content will lead you there.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
