Brian Anderson, shared some thoughts on mobile site SEO recently. He has been working with search engine optimization and ranking sites since 1994. Today, he finds that a lot of the factors needed to rank mobile sites are the same as they were in SEO in 1994. In 2012, his focus has been on marketing plans and mobile concepts for car dealerships.
Mobile search has different aspects today. For one, mobile searchers use “short tail” keywords, vs. the “long tail” terms use on desktops. Also, restaurant searches dominate mobile search. He also recommended the following steps in building out a mobile directory:
- Build out site content with free listings
- Optimize for the most searched keywords
- Invest heavily in social links (tweet, share, pin)
- Build links using press releases, social bookmarking, etc.
- Using Fiverr.com is highly recommended
