  20. 20. Search Engine Ranking Signals
  21. 21. Ranking Signal - HTTPS Google considers HTTPS (SSL) ranking signal http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal.html
  22. 22. Ranking Signal – Malware Google penalizes websites that are hacked or have malware. It highlights them with labels or completely removes these sites from the index: https://sites.google.com/site/webmasterhelpforum/en/faq-malware-and-hacked-sites
  23. 23. Ranking Signals – Security Summary • Secure protocol SSL/TSL • Web Application Firewall (Securing your vulnerabilities using the best minds in the industry) • Hackers can inject malware into your site and Google WILL find it and demote your rankings • DDOS protection • If Google can't access your site, it can't index it. Let alone your customers. • DNSSEC 23
  24. 24. Ranking Signal – Site Speed Google rewards faster loading websites: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/using-site-speed-in-web- search-ranking.html
  25. 25. Ranking Signal – Site Speed Technical hacks that boost your site’s speed: • Compression • Minification (CSS, JS, HTML) • Response time • Image Optimization • Browser Caching • How JS & CSS are served • Use of Asynchronous scripts • Use of CDNs • Better headers and caching • Latest server technology (HTTP/2, SPDY, GZIP)
  26. 26. Ranking Signal – Site Speed HTTP/2 Protocol – the first major upgrade to the HTTP protocol in over 15 years – dramatically speeds up your site. Live demo: https://www.cloudflare.com/http2/
  27. 27. Pimp My Server & Network • Being on the edge • Faster DNS response time • Faster CDN • Better global coverage • Lower latency • Dedicated IP addresses • You will be seen differently in the eyes of search engines, better neighborhood & associated websites. (If not using private IP address) 27
  28. 28. SEO Is Still A Checklist • Algorithms are more intelligent, but are still just based on metrics, data, and logic. • SEO in 2016 still boils down to a list of things to check off, it’s just a lot longer, and more complex than a few years ago. • CloudFlare lets you tick more of that list quickly, reliably & cost effectively • This ultimately means you can spend more time on content, and creative marketing. 28
  29. 29. Technical Hacks Impact on SEO – Case Studies
  30. 30. CloudFlare SEO Case Study & Tests • We've solved many SEO issues for clients using CloudFlare as part of the solution • Generally we've had many positive results • On one occasion for a high traffic website we ran into a problem • DDoS issues • Global speed issues • Outgrown hosting capabilities and needed quick fix without high hosts • The client was very heavily dependent on organic search (over 80% of the traffic)
  31. 31. The Problem • Initial steps • Client was put behind CloudFlare • DDoS was no longer the problem • Global speed issues were instantly solved by CloudFlare's CDN • Problem arose • SEO visibility dropped resulting in a fall in traffic (roughly 10%, in our case 1.5 million visitors per month)
  32. 32. The Dilemma • Back to getting DDoS and serve content slowly? • Stay on CloudFlare and find another solution It was as simple as that…
  33. 33. The Solution • Following extensive testing it was obvious that the problem came from the IP address change (extremely competitive niche & privacy driven) • The solution was to put the site on a private IP address and remove the association given by the shared IP address completely • Client was put on a private IP address through the CloudFlare business plan • SEO visibility returned to normal within 5 days • SEO visibility continued to grow based on optimization (by 5%) within a month
  34. 34. Fascination and Further Tests with CloudFlare • Following our experience we tried to measure the SEO impact with other clients that were not adversely affected by being on CloudFlare's shared IP address • Working with CloudFlare, we put three other websites on the CloudFlare business plan. This put them on a private IP address. • We also used CloudFlare’s dynamic content optimization product, Railgun.
  35. 35. Summary Results #1: Online Services Provider website • Over 30% increase in ranking positions • 21.5% Increase in traffic as a result • 28,000 => 34,000 users a day Client taken onto CloudFlare Enterprise in July 2015
  36. 36. Summary Results #2: E-commerce website • Over 8% Increase in number of first page ranking positions • 17.4% Increase in traffic as a result • Average 1,150 => 1,350 users a day Client taken onto CloudFlare Enterprise in September 2015
