What are the SEO’s secrets?
Here comes the most interesting part of this document where you will learn how to easily and for sure rank on search engines.

The triptych structure, the content and popularity remain on the table. Today, we have to add the users behavior and increasingly all the social cues.
This knowledge does not make the ranking automatic as Google does everything in its power to not make its rankings easily falsifiable. In order to be ranked, you often have to be legitimate, first.
Please, never forget that search engines are looking for relevance and want to satisfy their users while getting as much advertising revenues as possible.
In this way, even a Google engineer working at the heart of ranking, indexing or analysis algorithms would not be the best SEO specialist.

Stop looking for secrets and make the way you see SEO simpler by asking you this question: « Are you more legitimate-than the top 3 websites? »
