Understanding the Power of Google’s Algorithm

Most people have no idea how Google Algorithm works and why it is so successful in its ability to find the best websites and also why it can be so confusing for some. Even the most experienced SEOs and internet marketers are often not entirely sure why the Google algorithm is able to help out its searchers the way it does.

So here is a few thoughts to help you understand how the Google algorithm works and what it can do for you.

I am going to break it down into three main parts so that you can follow along at your own pace. So let’s start with the end of the line, and you should have a good idea of where you want to go with this now.

The End of the Line: Your website is most likely set to be in the top ten or fifteen of results when someone uses Google to search for something. And it only takes a couple of keywords or a page that gets a lot of visits every day to get there.

The End of the Line: All of the websites that you choose to do the Google Algorithm on, you will need to have unique content that the Google algorithm does not normally see. It will not trust you if you do not have quality content to back it up.

The End of the Line: The Google algorithm will not trust any site that has too many ads on it. So, if you are going to be doing AdSense, or want to do AdWords you need to make sure that your site is mobile friendly.

The End of the Line: The Google algorithm is looking for organic sites that have content.

If you find that you are losing all of your links because you use Yahoo! or another free directory and yet you still have great content, then your site will go in the back of the queue.

All in all, the Google algorithm is very good at what it does and it’s ways and means are few. It goes through thousands of web pages every day and looks for all sorts of things, but the thing that most people do not know is that the website that ranks number one will have one page that is very helpful and useful for the searcher.

If you want to beat Google at its own game, you need to keep your site fresh by having an informative and useful content. If you have a lot of text, ads, and navigation on your site, your searcher will not be impressed and will probably go to another site.

A different layout will help. People tend to click on a page that is organized and easy to read rather than one that is full of lines of text and banners.

The Google Algorithm is trying to solve a very important problem for everyone. The Google algorithm needs fresh and informative content, but it also needs to find sites that have high page rank because that is what it is looking for.

So, that is my analysis on the Google Algorithm. Good luck with your website marketing and I wish you all the best of luck.
