I just came across an excellent graphical illustration by Search Engine Land called “The periodic table of SEO ranking factors”, this infographic design to illustrate the most important factors you must be aware of when you’re dealing with search engine optimisation.
There are four main groups of factors:
- On The Page factors: Things that a publisher can control directly.
- Off The Page factors: Things you can influence indirectly about how others can help, or harm, your chances of search engine visibility.
- Violations: Things you should avoid.
- Blocked: New class of not-violations but still things that can be harmful.
