    Understanding Google`s Algorithm - Great but what...


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Great, but what do we need to know the algorithm for?

    Knowing the Google algorithm, or at least the basics of it, will give you an edge on your competitors by making you more likely to get higher rankings under desired keywords. In addition, you will receive more traffic from those listings, thereby increasing the chances for getting links to your website, adding further traffic. Through a few high listings on Google, or the other search engines for that matter, the sky is the limit when talking about traffic and potential sales or users.

    For example, if you wanted to broadcast a new song over the radio, but only did so using old equipment, regardless of the quality of the song, your entire station could be drowned out by the larger broadcasting companies armed with new equipment and a larger range capability. Using the latest tools and tactics will keep you on top of the search engine listings, as well as put you on the cutting edge in regards to your website's capabilities.

    It is almost painfully obvious that using the best tactics to get your website listed would, of course, produce better results than using outdated tactics and trying to acquire the same effect, even if you spend three times the amount of time promoting your site through these tactics. Quality is greater than quantity in today's internet.

    Alright, then how can I use the algorithm to my advantage?

    There are quite a few things to focus on when optimizing your site for the Google algorithm, but the most important ones would have to be inbound links to your site and good, relevant content. Other things come into play, such as click through rates, the frequency of updates to your site, the physical address listed in your whois information, technical and administrative contacts, your host's IP address, and the length of time your domain name is registered for. All of these things, although some are weighed more than others, have a serious impact on your rankings and on your PR (Google Page Rank).
