SEO Strategy


Topical Authority Research - A Semantic SEO Strategy


There is a basic semantic SEO strategy that can help your site gain massive traffic.

That strategy is called topical authority.

This SEO paradigm shift is a result of search engines attempting to understand the meaning of search queries to bring the best results for those queries.

This has changed SEO as we know it. Instead of optimizing content around keywords, we should now focus on optimizing content around entire topics.

When we do that successfully we achieve topical authority.

But…

How do you actually research your chosen topic?

In this post, I’ll show you some clear actions you can take to easily understand how Google organizes entities in its Knowledge Graph so that you can design a semantic SEO strategy that could position you as the authority in your chosen topic.

Keywords vs Topics


Okay, so you’re getting into semantic SEO. Great idea.

In my last blog post, I explained what semantic search is. It’s now time to understand how to build a semantic SEO strategy.

In this post, I’ll get into the difference between keywords and topics and explain why focusing on topics could revolutionize your SEO and potentially bring you way more traffic. 

I don’t intend this post to be my final word on covering topics. It’s intended to be a general overview that will give you a solid understanding that you'll need to build content silos that get massive traffic.

What is Semantic Search? (Semantic SEO Basics)


We all feel it.

SEO has changed dramatically.

What used to work when I started out (when the world was still in black and white), is not working like it used to.

And, as the search engines evolve we SEOs have to evolve with it.

When trying to find answers, I discovered semantic SEO. 

I discovered that semantic search influences all of the SEO basics, including:
  • Keyword research
  • Search intent
  • Content creation
  • Site architecture
  • Internal linking
  • And more

In this blog post, I’ll be giving you an overview of semantic search. My goal is to give you a solid foundation to work with so that when you learn semantic SEO strategies you’ll understand why they work.
