Yes, backlinks are and always will be the foundation of Google’s algorithm.
But for the first time, Google now uses machine learning to “quality control” the search results.
If users like your result, it gets a rankings boost.
If not, it drops like a stone.
The question is:
How can you optimize for these user experience signals?
In general, there are three ways that you can optimize for UX signals:
- Improve your click-through-rate (CTR)
