25+ SEO Keywords To Delete, Add, Or Review In Web3 Era

Nowadays, in the SEO world, it is sometimes more complicated than ever to figure out what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to SEO terminology, phrases and words.

As brands and marketers start adopting Web3, the next generation of web terms comes and goes.

To make sure you are on top, we’ve used the minds of industry-leading SEO and digital marketers to analyze overused, underrated, and promising SEO words.

Just as styles change with the seasons, SEO changes with algorithms and the modern day.

What may have been last season’s must-have slogan could be this year’s red flag awaiting a penalty from Google.

Are we still talking about wearing black and white caps? Is it still a predominantly male-dominated, exclusive industry? Press releases still a tactic or a strategy?

Some SEO words just ended up classifying them as overused, overvalued, and in some cases simply exaggerated.

In addition to Web3, brands of all sizes must focus on diversity, equity and inclusion as a checkpoint in strategy, leadership and culture.

Including content and including accessibility, equality, equal pay, working from home etc. are not just buzz words. They are the new norm when it comes to keywords, culture and innovation,

In a recent interview with the Search Engine Journal with Rachel Heseltine, she shared her story of emerging as an SEO specialist and her thoughts on the impact of diversity on leadership and more.

Public relations and media coverage continue to positively impact SEO as the results come from link gains to positive SEO jumps thanks to brand mentions in the media.

Let’s also be on the radar of what SEO in metaverse will look like when Google tiptoes to one of the biggest Google Trend slogans of 2021: “metaverse”.

SEO is not magic and it is not a slogan.

“The word SEO is not bad in itself,” said content marketing consultant and SEO expert Kelsey Jones. “But shady agencies use vague terms so as not to be transparent to clients about the actual work they are doing on their website.”

“I have small business owners coming to me asking for ‘SEO’ and assuming they will magically make them number one in search results, just because other SEO practitioners have said it’s possible within a few months . As professionals, it is simply not appropriate to use people who have no idea what you are talking about, ”added Jones.

“I also find the term ‘content’ a bit confusing and misunderstood as many business owners or executives do not understand the blood, sweat and tears it takes to create content from initial idea to research, writing and promotion.

They believe that anyone can create “content”, but to be effective you need a team of professionals who know how the whole process works. “

Considering SEO’s birth dates back to 1997, which means it’s just over 20 years old, there’s still plenty of adolescence.

We went from birth to infancy, middle school, teenage years and graduated.

SEO in the early years was quite simple.

The game was all about manipulating the search results.

Now that SEO is in the mid-20s, things are starting to mature and getting serious.

As SEO grows, so does vocabulary, terminology, and best practices.

In today’s post-pandemic, complex, and rapidly changing world of digital marketing, change is a way of life. That’s true. If search engine marketers had to choose a specialization, that would be the “change expert”.

What worked last year is old news and what was amazing five years ago is ancient history in Google’s years. Contrary to fashion, outdated SEO terminology is not making a comeback.

Optimizing to get results on the first page of Google in search results requires a “adapt or die” attitude.

To keep up with the changes, here are 26 SEO words that industry professionals would like to remove, die and say goodbye.

Kelsey Jones, SEO Content Leader  

Let’s look at the word “content.”

The term “content” is a bit confusing and misunderstood as many business owners or CEOs do not understand the blood, sweat and tears needed to create content, from the initial idea to research, writing and promotion. They believe that anyone can create “content”, but to be effective you need a team of professionals who know how the whole process works.

Heather Lloyd-Martin, SEO Copywriting Expert and Trainer

My pet is annoyed by a deadline that has to go?

At least once a week, I get an email from an SEO developer complaining that his client wants a keyword density of X% – which disrupts the flow of content.

Yes, in the past (over 20 years ago) we needed 5.5% density of key phrases to position ourselves in Alta Vista.

Today, Google said keyword density is not a ranking factor.

Randomly inserting keywords into your content will not help with SEO. However, I still see companies (and some SEO tools) pushing for a specific keyword density because they think that’s what Google wants.

Victoria Edwards, Online Marketing and Social Media Manager

This really annoys me because it clearly isn’t. Who only knows how our business will change due to the net neutrality situation, but I’m sure we’ll find another way to provide our consumers with the content they are looking for.

This one gets me and feels a bit abused. Maybe the phrase digital marketing should take over.

Yes, outgoing is different from incoming, but we have to deal with it and try something different.

This is my favorite overused phrase. Agree that content can be king. You have to take into account that if your website isn’t optimized, the content isn’t strong and you don’t have a decent budget to promote it… that’s not king. People just won’t see the content.

Carrie Hill, Local SEO Analyst

“Essential” SEO word to add:

I would add the word “TESTING” in really big bold letters. I think a lot of SEOs talk about testing, but very few implement, test, improve, and learn with measured scientific tests.

What worked and what didn’t? How can we better design our test? How can we improve our results?

In my opinion, rule number one in testing is “be prepared to make a mistake”.

I think there is a lot of ego in the SEO industry and many cannot deal with the mistake of theory or tactic they have been using (and heavily promoting) since LAT.

Ravens are hard to eat – but if that makes my customers more money – I’ll add ketchup and fumble.

Lily Ray, SEO Expert by Day, DJ by Night

SEO tools coined the term “toxic backlink” and now the industry has overdid it in assigning relevance and weight to that score.

However, the same SEO tools that measure “toxic links” mostly just look at spammy links that are completely ignored by Google.

Every site has spammy links, and Google knows it. True “toxic” links are links that violate Google’s guidelines and are generally difficult to identify by SEO tools.

This “toxicity score” concept is confusing for both SEO and website owners.

Another metric created by SEO tools has been completely exaggerated.

While Google probably uses some version of the domain-wide authority rating, we don’t have access to these metrics, and DA is certainly not that.

EAT assessment / algorithm / algorithm update

EAT is extremely important, but using terms like “EAT score”, “EAT algorithm” or “EAT algorithm update” greatly simplifies what the EAT actually does and how it works. The term EAT is probably used in all of Google’s organic algorithms, but it can’t be boiled down to a simple result in the same way as it is with Core Web Vitals.

In addition, no single algorithm update focused solely on EAT, although it played an increasing role in algorithm updates in recent years.

Rebecca Murtagh, Author of Million Dollar Websites

I was probably even guilty of using these words in the past.

However, in an era of brand democratization, where customers are part of the brand’s history, search results favor brands when customers say they are the best or the best in their offer.

So let your customers and viewers have their say!

It’s time to take the softer side of SEO!

Customers become emotionally attached and fiercely loyal to the brands they love. So the words will vary by brand and market.

To attract the most qualified visitors to your site from search engine results, brands can use two key content and snippets in the hope of making it to the SERP:

For example, an Apple fragment reads: Discover the innovative world of Apple and buy …

Customers are loyal to the Apple brand because they are connected and constantly expect brand innovation.

Using call-to-action (CTA) brand differentiators such as “discover” and “store” promotes action (click!).

When SEO gets more human, everyone wins!

Joy Hawkins, Google My Business Expert

Since Google recently changed its name to Google My Business, we should add a new name: Google Company Profile.

The frustrating thing about this rebranding is that it sounds very silly when you abbreviate it to GBP because Google thinks you are talking about the British Pound.

It will take a lot of practice to get used to saying your Google company profile instead of GMB.

Agree with “Link Juice” on the words to be removed. I can’t stand what the word sounds like and usually choose something like “link power” or “link equity” instead.

Melissa Fach, SEO Consultant, Community Manager, and Editor

“Do it and you will be successful.”

Anyone who writes and gives advice must stop saying this.

There are too many variables to consider when it comes to SEO to guarantee someone will be successful if they copy your strategy.

As an editor, I always remove these false promises from my articles.

Virginia Nussey, Director of Marketing at MobileMonkey

Could this concept die? You are either:

I was thinking about ways to adapt to Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Google’s RankBrain has had a significant impact on SEO.

First, writers and SEOs need better tools to identify long and voice search queries.

We can use Google Suggestions and “People Ask too” along with the most frequently asked questions from Answer the Public – but what else can we do in response to the effects of AI on search engine search and behavior? It was very important to me and will be in the future.

Eric Enge, SEO Expert, Author, and President of Pilot Holding

With all the work Google is putting into generating snippets, it looks like the usability of meta descriptions will soon disappear 100%, if it isn’t already.

For now, I would still optimize your meta description, but I suspect that in a year or two we will get confirmation that it doesn’t matter anymore.

I have no confirmation, but I am speculating, given how much work Google puts into extracting snippets, I believe the need for meta descriptions will disappear.

SEO Words Trending In:

OK, I know people are talking about it already, but I don’t think everyone really understands how important it is.

The real story with the highlighted snippets will be told when more than half of all queries are passed over by voice, and most people will get their only answer from a verbal SERP – SERP that has only one answer, and that answer will be taken from what we call featured snippet today.

Too many people focus solely on outdated ranking signals such as content and links. These are still important, but it’s also important to put a broader perspective on how your brand is perceived on the Internet.

Google has repeatedly told us that it is trying to browse our sites as users do. What does that really mean?

If users want to see brand results for a given query, that’s what Google will return. If users want to see the market, Google will return it in the SERP. If users want to see review sites, Google will refund that.

If you don’t get a particularly good result for a given query, they won’t refund you.

How does Google figure it out? Not only by analyzing the content, as you may have pages that relate to a given query, you still can’t be the company that users want to interact with in relation to that query.

You may get links to your site that say you are authoritative for this query, but the presence of these links does not mean that users want you as well.

Try it: Engage in branding and advertising campaigns, or be actively involved or create online conversations about your brand related to your query.

This is a clear sign that consumers consider you relevant to the query.

Joe Laratro, SEO/PPC Expert and President, Tandem Online Marketing Solutions

“Unprecedented” must go.

We should remove “unprecedented” from our SEO dictionary today. I say this for Covid, March 2020 – March 2022. Some industries flourished on the Internet during the pandemic.

These numbers just don’t last.

Today’s results have to be judged against the years before the Great Covid Migration (the mass of migrants that spurred every home services industry).

Maintaining last year’s numbers could be this year’s success.

The challenge for marketers today is to make sure KPIs are realistic.

Add these words to your current SEO conversation:

Inflation and the cost of quality must be added to the discussion of SEO.

The last two years have changed the landscape of search engine marketing professionals more than we’ve seen since the Google Penguin update.

Working from home scenarios opened local workers to international companies.

The value of a good search engine optimization specialist has increased due to the shortage and availability of positions. High quality has always cost more. It costs more in 2022.

Agencies must ensure that service prices reflect rising costs. Customer-side marketers cost more, so these companies have to pass these costs on to their goods as well.

Storytelling was one of the most famous dates of 2017. I think it should stay in 2017.

While storytelling is of great value, it’s just another form of generating engaging, high-value content.

It’s an old concept, but it occupies a larger place in today’s world of optimization than it may have ever been before.

Advances in SERP with incredibly relevant and tailored results make targeting specific keywords very difficult.

A broad approach to SEO that takes into account all aspects of current best practices and technologies (amazing user experience, speed, mobility) should be an ongoing commitment.

They are just seriously overrated.

Conclusion

Don’t get caught up in outdated words and terms.

As SEO enters the third decade, new generations are redefining the search engine marketing industry. Innovation, technology and culture are influencing new behaviors.

All marketers need to be educated and aware of trends and algorithms to attract the best talent, obtain the best results, and stay up-to-date with Google best practices and updates.
