Content is King. So we have to update our site's content regularly also as a humming bird update

The SEO landscape is very similar to what it was in 2013.

As everyone states - take care of your content. Google loves regularly updated original content that adds value. Furthermore, if you can create content that is inherently shareable your backlinks are built by your visitors.

Make sure your link building is relevant. If blog commenting, ensure the comments add value and are on relevant sites. Although you'll get little to no link juice from these comments, building relationships with others in your niche is a great incentive. As is potential traffic flow.

I still swear by guest posting and broken link building - It can be time consuming, but a strong pr link gained this way can be very beneficial.

Analyse the competition - what backlinks are they using? How easy are they for you to replicate. Sometimes some strong low hanging fruit can be found this way.

Avoid fiverr gigs advertising thousands of backlinks or twitter followers etc - they are worthless and can be harmful.

Engage your social media audience. Choose social media profiles appropriate to your core business and use this to engage with an audience rather than using it as a platform to advertise to them.

It is believed Google is tracing social signals as part of its rankings algorithm now (with a preference towards Google + of course), so you should start building your circles there too.

Onsite SEO - how fast is your site, how user friendly? Interlinking within your own pages is definitely a factor now. A well structured site should also reduce bounce rate - a variable that I believe Google looks into these days.

The list could go on. The important thing to remember is quality over quantity. That way your site will be Google update proof, whatever animal they release into the world next.

1. Update your site content regularly.
2. Social media presence - Facebook, G+, Youtube. Especially the later two as they are from google.

2014 is the year of Visitor Experience. Not that it didn't matter before, but there were some other ways to "trick" Google. Now it is all about what the visitor does on your website, how many clicks, how many pages, how much time he/she spends.

Let me tell you the case about my website - DomesticCleaners.co.uk. When it was built it started to steadily rank for several queries. However, the few visits it had displayed good Google Analytics statistics - the bounce rate was 35%, avg. time spent was 3 minutes, and there were 3 average pages visited (statistics which are good in the particular "boring" niche). This resulted in Google allowing better rankings for more queries. It steadily increased the traffic to my website, but the Analytics metrics remained good, which was the reason for the traffic and queries to keep increasing.

And yes, by the end of 2014 the mobile search traffic will pass the 50% barrier, and will become more than than the desktop search. So, make sure your website mobile version or responsive design is simple, easy-to-use, as mobile visitors are much likely to order your product/service now.
