And for everyone talking about wasting development resources on pagination annotations, consider that other crawlers like Bingbot can still use them :)

Google is not supporting pagination annotations (rel=next) anymore. Will base crawling and ranking paginated series based on standard internal linking. Check out for some best practices!

🙋🏽‍♀️ I wrote a totally serious guest blog post on the blog about the most serious topic of our time: Web performance. Additionally, the post contains possibly valuable information about how to make fast websites

Another thing to consider is the purpose of your page; what's the user-intent you're trying to cover? If you're adding random information to a category page, is it still an ecommerce page for users with "shopping" intents? Make up your mind, focus, don't blindly stuff text.

A5: would be a good start! It really depends on what you want learn about. Pick specific topics and become the best in that. Test. Rank. Move onto next topic!

If you are a local bakery, what would crafting daily content mean? Not sure if this tactic is relevant for many websites. Marketing must be costs effective.

A4: No specific study, all can benefit you. Learn from the methodologies used and do your own, niche specific research. summed up a nice list though.

The thing is, it not always gives consistent results: so it makes it interesting exercise. You also need a lot of volume to be statistically relevant so not all sites can do this

I really like the concept of content type! Context is much more relevant than the actual content in many case. Look at the user / searcher intent first. But still challenging for Google in smaller languages

Great list Pavel. What do you consider meta tag optimization? Writing better descriptions and titles to increase CTR from with the SERPs?

A2: No, ranking signals differ. For every keyword, on every different moment, in every location, for every user and device ranking signals are different.

True. But the guidelines don't really work in grey or blackhat dominated niches. If Google removes all spam (according to guidelines) nothing relevant ranks anymore. Big challenge for Google and other search engines. Yandex already tried algorithms without links!

But what about new niches where no one has defining links? Then we get back to the content is queen and context is king!

Great points! But if you look to the most common factor that moves rankings, what would you say if you have to choose one people should start to compare within their niche?
