During an SEO research I have noticed that nowadays a particular keyword phrase is showing more results which all webmasters are keen in searching for which is none other than “SEO tips for 2014”.
Google Hummingbird and Penguin 2.1 has rocked the SEO world in 2013 and it’s a damn sure that Google will continue its chase with the unleashing animals to surprise all webmasters!

Google’s distinguished Engineer, Matt Cutts has also told about this at an event that Mobiles responsive is important and it is of course more social.

With the lot of social media platforms being evolved, social signal will possibly play a huge role in the SEO world.
The more shares, likes, tweets, +1’s all matters a lot and earning it will increase the chances of making your site go viral!
