Attending Hubspot webinars is a regular occurrence here in the Kuno labs. Dan Zarrella’s The Science of SEO was no exception. Dan is known as the “Social Media Scientist” across the internet and is the author of The Hierarchy of Contagiousness: The Science, Design, and Engineering of Contagious Ideas. He’s known as the "Social Media Scientist" for having the propensity for gathering large swaths of internet data, crunching it and offering conclusions and correlations based on the results. The below are the 16 conclusions you can take-a-way from his SEO & SEM number crunching. While we here at Kuno weren’t surprised by the results, we are certainly happy that they reaffirm inbound marketing's power.
The data, charts and graphs which confirm the conclusions above are available in The Science of SEO slide deck. The most important take-a-way is number 14 – blog more. Because of this Dan recommends that small to mid-sized companies should hire content writers and producers in lieu of SEO personnel. Producing lots of quality content produces SEO results. If you have any questions about the data or the take-a-ways please leave a comment below. For help with link building see our 15 Effective Link Building Techniques for SEO.
