Seven SEO Trends to Keep Up With in 2017 [Infographic]

by Laura Forer  |  
April 24, 2017

It's hard enough for marketers to keep up with email trends and shopping trends, but keep up they must. And one of the most fickle channels marketers need to follow is SEO.

We wrote about SEO predictions earlier this year, and now we're highlighting an infographic by web agency KOL Limited with seven more trends to watch.

User intention will be a key focus, the agency predicts, meaning that the context—and not just the keywords—of the user's search will gain importance.

The infographic also predicts that brands will revisit the use of HTTPS in their URLs, as that extra S can hide valuable referral data.

To see all seven predictions for this year, check out the infographic:

    Could you explain the difference between cross-channel marketing and multi-channel marketing? I didn't understand the point about https to http referrals.

    Thanks, Laura, for sharing this interesting infographic--I added to my Pinterest collection of helpful marketing infographics!

    There are some super predictions for SEO trends here that I intend to heed, but I have a problem with cross-channel marketing as a "trend" that is "still in its infancy." Really? Although called by a different buzzword with regularity, a marketing approach that is unified, comprehensive, and symbiotic across ALL channels is old news, not a hot trend. Am I missing something? What do others think?
