Search Engine Optimization

SEO is just like a poker hand

52 Cards To A Deck

5 Cards To A Hand

Think of the hand as the top searches from the 52 card deck, this is what your dealt.


Lays the tables rules, plays a major rule in distribution, however he just delivers your card from the deck to your hand.

Key Takeaway

The complexity of Google's Search Algorithm is just like that of a shuffled dealers deck. All the pieces needed to play the game are there, however, input is constant, but output has it chances.

Think of the first page of Google search as a chance for a flush. There are 5108 options (total results). However there are winning hands and losing hands.

SEO is a way to increase your odds of receiving a winning hand. The winning hand is your customers seeing your content or website before your competitors. Simply put, we are trying to work the deck in your favor.

At the very minimum in SEO we are trying to play the game, but get into the game. Not ever card gets drawn in the round, why shouldn't your website be drawn in the first round?

As customers eliminate cards from their hand to create the best hand, that's how our customers think when they search.
