Organic SEO a different game from local SEO
Just as local SEO is key for a local business
, organic SEO can make or break a brand that conducts business primarily online.
It's important to note that a national brand may or may not have a local component (a Google My Business listing for a Google Maps physical location) while a local business may often have an online component catering to a national or international audience. Hence, organic SEO and local SEO commonly overlap.
National organic SEO
Organic search engine optimization, (also called national SEO or just plain SEO) involves trying to claim the top spot for geographically-agnostic search queries.
National SEO keywords tend to be much more competitive than local search terms, simply because the search traffic is much higher. Compare the following two search engine queries:
• A person in Peoria searches "best yoga near me"
• A person in Peoria searches "best yoga mat"
Google's natural language processing engine immediately understands that the person in the first example intends to take yoga classes somewhere in their neighborhood and will serve up a Google Maps pack followed by other search results related to Peoria yoga studios. Google understands "near me" to mean "in Peoria, Illinois."
In the second example, Google recognizes that the query is not related to Peoria and will show the searcher a mixture of ecommerce sites selling yoga mats, blogs, and reviews sites that compare and contrast yoga mat brands.
Given that far more people search for "best yoga mat" than for Peoria yoga studios, ranking for the local term is less competitive. Therefore, organic/national SEO may need a longer time horizon when measuring movement in the search rankings.
Page quality paramount for national SEO
When a person performs an internet search, they always do so with a specific search intent. Google has gotten good at identifying different types of user intent, and they scan your site to evaluate its relevancy to the user intent it ascribes to the search.
The organic SEO goal, then, is to convince Google and other search engines that YOUR company website is the answer to the user intent behind a search query.
Google's E-A-T criteria
As far back as 2014, Google has instructed its page quality evaluators
to view websites in terms of expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness. This EAT (often rendered E-A-T or E A T) perspective encapsulates the new landscape of search engine optimization.
Keyword stuffing, backlinks, and other superficial fixes won't fool the search engines; for you to rank, your on-page content
must be topically relevant, and your offpage SEO campaigns
must build brand recognition and a larger online presence.
In other words, you've got to focus on substance: expertise, authoritativeness, and trust.
