Google changes the algorithm for SEO frequently, but there is one lady within the translation business that is on top of the latest changes and that is Anne Diamantidis. She gave a presentation in Budapest last spring on the new rules of search engine optimization and I wanted to discuss them with her here. We are talking about whether we need to worry about SEO and what we should focus on to improve our ranking on Google.
In this episode we discuss the following:
- What SEO is and what it is not
- Why SEO is important for freelance translators
- The latest tips on Google algorithm changes and SEO
- The two pillars of SEO – content and links
- Long tail keywords
