    Interesting im always wondering whats is next in terms of ranking. This one has been around but you believe they will add more weight to it ? Could be.. I though Social signals where going to get the boost from google as i have read that facebook ( With all its fake accounts ) now actually have a "page rank" for accounts to give them validity and influence on ranking activities such as perhaps reviews.

    YouTube is owned by google so you know that that will influence rankings more than anything else.

    Yeah another big thing for local ranking is citations from important local resources, also make sure you NAP ( name , adress phone ) is consistency across all boards on the internet , this is especially helpful with google my business and is a ranking factor for the map pack.

    Keyword Meta tag is depreciated in google drop it , it isnt however in bing , but i would play with fire.

    Additionally adding keywords into your image names ( not just alts ) helps.
    Fully loaded time does not have as much a influence on ranking as your time to first byte ( get a good host ).
    Internal linking structure needs to be correct and relevant to the sub topic.

    Biggest local citation points are from google plus and face book.

    Hyper local citations are major , these are places exclusive to your area like your local newspaper.

    After setting up your business account start a brand account on face book , also link a you tube channel to your brand account , use your brand account to create circles ( friend groups ) of the relevant niche.

    Not letting this one go webmasters need to stop spreading this nonsense
    - Update about latest SEO Trends - Usually black hat techniques follow googles guidelines, keep a ear to the ground for updates in googles eco system..
    - Include Blog on Website - Useless if it doesnt serve a purpose. Is it addressing pre sale questions? Talking about the industry you are in ? Providing a area where you can interact with
    your clients. You cant just go and write a article on your niche , if you manage to rank it have a look at the top results in most blog queries they are all skyscrappered your content will be
    used unless its really made for your target audience and involves them.. that cant be copied.
    - Perfect On-Page Optimise - Optimise what ? seo ? Google changes all the time you can never get this perfect... speed? New technologies are always coming out.... theres no perfect.
    - Build Links With High Quality - Links today are very hard to come by, most webmasters who own high ranking pages sell links, which google will scrap anyway. You will be very lucky to
    find backlinks from other websites that are pure. Google is moving away from links as a ranking factor in favour of things like user metrics and social media signals.
    Also you want a link that will push you from ranking number 8 to number sever for one query... or a link that doesnt do too much for ranking but brings you 3- 4 clients a month...
    - Keyword is important - Agreed but not near enough to do much. Look up latent semantic indexing if you want to work on keywords and so forth.
    - Connect on Social Media - Powerful on the right platforms for your niche with targeted content. Otherwise you are just wasting time.
    Also dont buy social media likes... hundreds of other people are buying from the same source, you think google or social media platforms cant tell what is real and what isnt ?
    This is a multi billion dollar industry with teams of the greatest minds in the world working on it. They know.
