The 2015 SEO Predictions Word Cloud

45 SEO Experts Made a Word Cloud

45 SEO Experts Made a Word Cloud

Here we are at the end of 2014. You know what that means, right? It means it’s the season for 2015 SEO predictions. Speaking of SEO predictions, I recently saw this article – SEO Trends 2015: 45 Experts On The Future Of Search. After reading all the responses, I thought to myself, “Hey! No one asked me what I think about SEO in 2015!” In fact, no one has ever asked me what I think about the future of SEO. Oh well. Maybe one day I’ll make the big leagues of SEO.

Anyhoo, whenever I see really long interviews that feature several well-known people, I like to take all their statements and build a word cloud. I thought it would be fun to share a word cloud I made from that ’45 Experts’ article I mentioned above. You know, for science.

For that ’45 Experts’ post of 2015 SEO predictions, google, mobile, and content are the leaders in the clubhouse of keyword density. That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Google, mobile, and content dominate the themes of most SEO conversations these days. [Note: I removed a few keywords from the list because they were too obvious: search, marketing, and SEO.]

Some of the more notable words in the mix:

  • brand(s)

  • social

  • people

  • user(s)

  • device(s)

  • audience

  • voice

  • semantic

  • data

There were over 10,000 words in those responses. If you’re interested, here is a gigantic list of words and the number of occurrences for each:

BTW I wonder if Google considers it to be duplicate content if I build a word cloud based on a blog post from some other site. Hmm…
