|”No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google. Beware of SEOs who claim to guarantee rankings, allege a ’special relationship’ with Google, or advertise a ’t’ to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or by submitting a Sitemap and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.” - GOOGLE
This article is about how Google Indexes your website and displays pages in the Search Results. For information on how to Optimise Your Site, click here.
Google crawls individual pages, one by one, day after day, and there are over 60 trillion pages on the internet. The software used to do this is called a Spider. It crawls a few pages, consuming code and content and following any links to other pages. Google then feeds the information into an Index (over 100 million gigabytes of information).
A Google Algorithm is the formula used to assess the information in the Index, and give us accurate and SAFE search results when we enter a search query into a Search Engine. These Algorithms change from time to time, as Google tries new ideas and formulas.
When you enter a search query, such as “Electrician in Cowra”, Google has to define what you mean, and therefore what you are expecting to see in the results.
Google then searches through it’s Index to bring you a result. And by the way, these results don’t come from the internet directly, they come from Google’s Index of the internet. Google sits in between you and the internet.
By using over 200 filters such as: how many times does your search query appear on a single page; where on the page do these words appear; quality of content on that page; how recently was new content added to that page; safety factors; language; demographics; synonyms; overall quality of the site the page belongs to and where do the links on that page lead to.... Google brings you a Search Result. This takes about half a second.
Example April 2014 - sacredspaceswebdesign.com.au
The search query ’Spiritual Web Design’ 13th April, 2014, resulted in my website ranking number one worldwide for the search term in Google.
The top line is my Title Tag.
The second line will either be my Description Tag, or a chosen few lines from the page content if Google feels it represents better what the searcher was looking for.
Above my link you will see paid advertised sites and also to the right.
At positions 2 and 3, you will see other pages from my website Google thinks represents a good result for this query. You can see extended information about SEO and ranking here.
