SEO copywriting roundup: Hottest posts week of Nov. 26, 2013

Establish authority - like this hummingbird.

We can all learn from this hummingbird as it establishes authority.

This week, it’s all about hummingbirds establishing authorship – or something like that. The authority of hummingbirds? Hummingbird domination! That must be it.

We’ve all heard about the importance of setting up Google authorship and establishing ourselves as authorities online in our given field. Also, Google’s Hummingbird algorithm overhaul is still a hot topic as everyone with a website (aka everyone) tries to figure out exactly what that means for the search world.

Warren Lee’s Search Engine Land article, Hummingbird In The Trenches: A Canary In The Coal Mine, suggests an authorship, Hummingbird tie-in as Google may need to rely on recent, relevant articles to answer search queries rather than stagnant web pages.

Definitely give that one a read, and enjoy the rest of the week’s hottest SEO copywriting posts!
