We’re next moving on to HTML headers. These are the main headings you see on a page, including secondary headings and sometimes tertiary headings that you see on a page as well. And where people sometimes go wrong is that they’ll just try and work too many keywords into the heading. And that will sometimes come at the expense of the message that you want the user to get from the page.
So SEO training, SEO courses, London UK, it looks like it’s written for a search engine. It doesn’t look very user-friendly. What can we do to improve this?
Well, in this case, because it’s a product or a service, we’ve just gone for a what-it-says-on-the-tin approach, SEO Training, that’s what we’ve gone for.

What are the consequences with content not being RankBrain-friendly?
Now the goal with RankBrain is to say, let’s look at key phrases, what do they mean, and let’s match them up with the most relevant content we can. Not necessarily the best keyword-optimized pages.
So if you’re not matching that search or intent of what the user wants, then Google isn’t probably going to actually rank your page. And that’s a key point. We’ve mentioned RankBrain quite a few times, but really do think about providing a very good user experience, wherever you can.Back to Top
