How does Google find me?
Every day Google sends out robots (bots) that crawl the Internet indexing the content of websites. When you search with Google you are not actually searching the Internet but rather, you are searching Caffeine – Google’s index. Caffeine contains more information than all of the libraries in the world combined!
When a user searches for a particular term, Google uses over 200 algorithms to sort through hundreds of billions of web pages and other content in Caffeine to present the most relevant, useful results in a fraction of a second. These algorithms rank the results and present them in order.
What is Google page rank?
Google’s ranking systems are designed to present the most relevant, useful results in a fraction of a second. Key factors in page rank are:
Relevance – The most basic signal that information is relevant is when content contains the same keywords as your search query. If those keywords appear on the page, or if they appear in the headings or body of the text, the information might be more relevant.
Quality – Google looks for content that demonstrates expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness. Here backlinks from authoritative sources are key.
Usability – Google systems look at page experience aspects. Aspects such as mobile-friendly, and content load time.
Context – Google uses country and location to deliver location-relevant content. For example, “football” in Atlanta will show results about American football first. Whereas in London, Google will show results about soccer and the Premier League.
What are Core Vitals and how do they affect my page rank?
Core vitals are Google’s metrics to score the user experience on your website. Google will punish slow sites.
- Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): This metric measures the time it takes for the main largest content on a web page to appear to users. Google recommends an LCP of under 2.5 seconds.
- Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): This measures the number of layout shifts that unexpectedly move the main content of the web page. These shifts affect the user’s ability to read content and interact with the page properly. Google recommends a CLS score of 0.1 or less.
How do I get on Google’s first SERP?
There is no surefire way to rank on Google’s first Search Engine Results Page (SERP). Google has over 200 algorithms in its page rank system. However, Google heavily favors websites with quality content containing relevant keywords. Simply placing a keyword as many times as possible within your content will only hurt your rankings. not to mention making for a poor user experience.
How long does it take to start seeing results with SEO?
There’s no set timetable for when you’ll start to see your rankings improve. You may be fortunate enough to see improvement within a few months, however, recovering from a Google penalty may take a year or longer.
What are backlinks and why are they important?
Backlinks are links from one website to another. Google and other major search engines consider backlinks “votes” for a specific page. Google gives a page credit for a high number of quality backlinks, which helps to get the page to rank higher. This can improve your site’s organic search engine rankings.
Backlinks are also known as “inbound links”, “incoming links” or “one-way links”.
