Decoding Google’s Related Entity Patent

Making the “Related Entity Patent” Intellectually Accessible
Search engine optimization (SEO) has become a commonplace concept for those who want to succeed at reaching consumers via virtual pathways. SEO is the culmination of keywords, phrases, and the construction of written content designed to make websites more visible and relevant to Google and other popular search engines. This is dependent on an ever-changing Google algorithm, or fluidly applied equation that is constantly updated using new information gathered based on customer driven data.

This brings us to the related entities patent that allows Google to identify and display results that may share keywords or valid concepts that relate them to the term being searched. Google keeps a database of related entities that allows the algorithm to connect relevant topics and search results that may have roots in the original concept. This broadens search results and creates a more organic experience for the user.

How Does the Patent Relate to SEO?

The term “patent” usually refers to an ownership of an idea or product. In this instance, patent also encompasses intellectual data and the relationship between search results and peripheral information.  Instead of just focusing on the words and data being put into the search bar, Google also analyzes the way that these terms relate to other information. This allows it to apply the algorithm to the understanding of human nature as it relates to the internet and search preferences.

SEO content must be updated and redesigned in order to apply these new findings using the following strategies:

  • Become Concept Oriented: It’s not just about keywords anymore. Content needs to contain related concepts that can link the primary information to other searches. The more your content shows up in searches, the more clicks it will generate.
  • Write for Your Target Audience: Think like your audience and write material that you would want to read. This applies to blog content, landing pages, website content, and all digital copywriting. Online content needs to take sales a step further and allow a personal connection to the readers. The Google entity patent is helping to humanize search results—keep this in mind when choosing your writing style for online content.
  • Create a Complete Package: This doesn’t mean that you can ignore keywords and related links. Find a balance and employ every concept in a way that’s both subtle and effective when reaching your audience and creating online alliances with other search results.

Work with Experts if Content Isn’t Your Niche

Following constantly changing related entity patents isn’t something that every entrepreneur has the time and professional energy to focus on. It helps to turn the responsibility over to a company whose primary focus is on content trends and SEO results.

And the Perks of Gaining SEO Insights!

How do you measure the ROI when it comes to SEO? If you’re looking at the number of visitors to your website, you might be doing it wrong. The number of people who visit your site could be in the thousands, but if your content doesn’t convert, what difference does it make? Content isn’t cheap to create. The number of visitors to your site doesn’t tell the real story. Here are three metrics you can use to evaluate how your content is performing and whether your content marketing strategy is garnering its money’s worth.

Why Your Content Must Be the Burning Question for Your Audience!

Google is constantly adding search features that help users get relevant information quickly. The “People Also Ask” feature has been around for a while, but it seems to be gaining traction as it’s being used in more searches. PAA boxes are another type of digital real estate, increasing your reach on a particular subject if you can get featured as an answer to a PAA question. Make it part of your content marketing strategy, even if you don’t rank for it immediately. The results might be slow, but they are worth waiting for.

And Why It's Important!

Featured snippets on Google are valuable digital real estate for your content marketing assets. These snippets are quick answers to search questions. Although snippets are designed to provide answers for the user without having to clickthrough to the page, Hubspot found that content with a snippet had a higher click-through rate of 2x or more, making this search feature important to your SEO strategy. If you can get your copywriting featured as a snippet, it builds your authority and visibility.

Use the Right Content Nails!

‘Cinderella' is the classic rags to riches story. Her sisters wanted to marry the prince, but just dressing up as princesses wasn't enough. Nothing the sisters did could make the prince choose them.

Don't Rely on Endless Spreadsheets for Keyword Optimization

Phil Frost, Founder and COO of Main Street ROI, says, “Successful SEO is not about tricking Google. It’s about PARTNERING with Google to provide the best search results for Google’s users.” Google indexes information to provide relevant search results, not to make marketing easier. When you keep that in your mind as part of your content marketing strategy, you can use keywords to support your SEO strategy to provide engaging content that delivers value to your audience.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.
