Despite social media creeping up on search as a leading source of referral traffic, search engines are still the number one way a user will find your site on the web. At the same time, you know that you need to undertake certain optimization strategies in order to get seen on search engines in the first place.
However, deciding which SEO strategies will benefit you most can be extremely difficult, as SEO’s ROI is often difficult to measure, and search engine ranking criteria is changing all the time. Luckily, a new survey shines some light on what’s working for most marketers.

Do any SEOs concentrate on search engines other than Google? While many would argue that it’s important, trying to optimize specifically for Yahoo or Bing doesn’t seem all that worth it when you look at the numbers. According to the latest comScore report, Bing still only has around 20 percent of the search market share.
The release of Windows 10, however, has the potential to boost Bing searches similarly (but on a much larger scale) to how Mozilla’s Yahoo deal boosted searches for Yahoo for a brief time. But will it be enough to get naysayers to pay attention to Bing?

But while you’ve been adding images to your site to enhance user experience, you may have overlooked the SEO advantages that images can provide. Luckily, optimizing images for search engines is simple and it can have a noticeable effect on traffic and rank.

Google is no stranger legal action. Since its inception, the search giant has faced all sorts of lawsuits and accusations of wrongdoing. Now, Google is facing what might be its largest legal battle yet, as it prepares to defend itself against European Union charges that it’s been abusing its market power and violating EU antitrust laws.
To add to the legal woes, a new, ill-timed study – backed by Yelp – purports that Google deliberately manipulates search results to stifle competitors, limit consumer options, and draw traffic to their own content and products.
