If you know nothing else about SEO in 2015 – memorize this list.

If you know nothing else about SEO in 2015 – memorize this of the TOP 11 SEO TACTICS in 2015, compiled by Pratik Dholakiya with SEW.  While there are over 200 ranking factors (and a more refined, smaller list recommended by MOZ), if you can master & execute regularly on these tactics, you’re doing better than most marketers;

  1. Create Incredible Content that Earns Links
  2. Create Co-Citation Links
  3. Create Editorial Links
  4. Fix Broken Links
  5. Conduct Link Reclamation (Brand Mentions, Content Usage)
  6. Conduct Link Outreach (New Placements, Mentions, Content)
  7. Conduct Competitor Analysis (Find Competitor Placements)
  8. Focus on ROI instead of Rank
  9. Map your SEO Strategy to an Audience (or Audiences)
  10. Optimize for All Search Engines (or, well – master Google)
  11. Focus on Mobile SEO Criteria & Keywords

Note how 65% of that list is focused on link building – it’s certainly not dead, and still is one of the few SEO tactics that can move the needle when all else has been done with On-Page SEO.
