The story begins...
On a good sunny day, while I was surfing for blogs to read in order to improve my blogging skill, I found a secret that is placed in front of everyone but I bet not much people notice it. Google actually tells their users how they rank websites in Google search engines.
How Google Ranks Blogs, Websites and Keywords in Google Search Result Page
Now, I tell you how Google ranks blogs and websites in their result page. Always remember that engineers in Google or any other search engines are working very hard to fight spam sites that are stuff with keywords with irrelevant contents. Search engines want to make sure that their search result pages are showing high quality and high accuracy websites to their users.
Imagine one day...
You are using Google to search for "How to write resume" and all the results come out are those websites that are promoting their software to help you generate resume and asking you to buy the product or the search results are websites that are stuff with "how to write resume keywords" but no actual guide to teach you write a good resume.
If this really happen to you, what would you do? How will you think of Google? For sure, you will directly use other search engines to look for the information that are relevant to you. Probably you will go to Bing or Yahoo to search for information.
So, search engines are constantly updating their search algorithm to make sure all the search results are of high relevancy to users. So, for us, as a blogger that provide high quality contents, we will want our blog listed on the top of the search engines results. You can look at the pictures below, maybe you will get some ideas:
From the search results as shown in the pictures above, you noticed that I circle the keywords in red. Google will try their best to match your search keywords to websites with the keywords. Everyone knows that, actually, I do not need to tell you. But, how Google match the keywords?
The Things I Noticed in Google Search Results Page
1. Google will match your search keywords to those websites that have your search keywords on their homepage.
For example:Search Engine Marketing Google matches homepage keywords "Search Engine Marketing".
2. Google will also match keywords using synonyms.
For example: "Blog income" Google matches with "Blogging Income" as shown in picture.
3. Google will match keywords even if the keywords are not connected together.
For example: "How to sing well" Google matches with "well, sing" as shown in picture.
So, what we can do with keywords now?After knowing how Google matches keywords, we will make sure:
Things to Do
1. Our blog keywords appear on our homepage so that Google can match it.
2. Use more synonyms. Do not stuff the same keywords all around your blog.
3. Spread keywords around your blogs.
So, make sure your blog are well-optimized for search engines. If you like this post, please help me spread it around through Facebook, Twitter, bookmarks or more. You can always use the links in the "Share This" to share my posts with your friend. I thank you in advance. :)
