Although EAT isn’t an officially confirmed ranking factor, it still has an impact on your organic traffic. We make sure your website appropriately demonstrates expertise to adhere to Google’s quality guidelines.

Let's Talk

What are EAT SEO services?

EAT stands for expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness. It is a concept derived from Google’s Quality Rater Guidelines – a document helping Search Quality Raters assess the quality of websites and search results served on Google.

In other words, following Google’s recommendations in terms of EAT may help you demonstrate your knowledge and professionalism to build trust with your website’s users.

EAT SEO services get you covered within these three different aspects:

Own tools, no guesswork

Expertise

Show that you are an expert in your field who knows the topic inside-out.

Expert team

Authoritativeness

Underline that you are an educated specialist with authority in a particular niche.

Unique attitude

Trustworthiness

How does EAT influence SEO?

EAT doesn’t directly contribute to your rankings through any measurable factors.

However, it represents a group of aspects that can influence your website’s quality and actually reflect how your pages rank.

Is E-A-T a ranking factor? Not if you mean there’s some technical thing like with speed that we can measure directly.

We do use a variety of signals as a proxy to tell if content seems to match E-A-T as humans would assess it.

In that regard, yeah, it’s a ranking factor.

By meeting the EAT signals, you help Google:

  • Better understand the context of the content on the Web, and
  • Provide users with credible information within ranking pages.

Consequently, your content ranks higher because Google knows it is a reliable source of information that serves specific user intent.

There is no specific “EAT score” you need to qualify for a better position in SERPs. But not taking care of your EAT will certainly contribute to the lower quality of your content and reflect on your website’s rankings. 

When taking care of EAT is important for all sites, it is particularly crucial if you manage a Your Money, Your Life (YMYL) website.

And, depending on what your area of expertise is, the way you approach your EAT optimization may differ.

For example, for an eCommerce website’s users, it is important to see real product reviews. On medical pages – it’s more important to get advice from an educated medical specialist.

Raising your EAT is a complex process that involves making sure you always serve high-quality content that is beneficial to users and doesn’t put at risk their safety or financial stability.
