On-page factors become more important for high search rankings in past year: report

Quality content and other on-page factors have become increasingly important for SEO in recent years thanks to Google’s various algorithm updates aimed at cracking down on spammers and sites that offer a poor user experience.

And a new report from Searchmetrics shows just how the influence of on-page SEO has changed in the past 12 months by examining the correlation of various factors with high Google rankings. 

Virtually all criteria – ranging from the image count to Adlinks – have apparently increased in importance, with a site’s word count showing the biggest difference compared to last year.
