Problems with Google’s Technology

Jeff Dean, a Google engineer, also talks about Google's technology a bit in this video at:

Since Google has the broadest distribution, people also work the hardest to game their system.

Google tends to take the view that any relevancy manipulation is inherently wrong and the SEOs are the enemy. In doing this, Google often prevents many quality resources from ranking and ends up having substandard relevancy. It seems they would rather make their own results slightly substandard than allow others to manipulate their index.

What is Yahoo! Search?12.14.14

The Yahoo! Directory and Yahoo! Search are two entirely separate things. The directory is a manually reviewed collection of websites. Yahoo! Search is powered through various search technologies purchased by Yahoo!

Yahoo! Search probably serves over 100 million searches each day. The directory would likely be lucky to serve more than a million searches a day.

Yahoo! Search is powered through a rewrite and combination of different pieces of what was once AltaVista, AllTheWeb, and Inktomi.

Text in Incoming Links11.23.14

What Link Text is Good to Use?
If you link to SeoTier.com, a link with the words Search Engine Optimization or SEO Blog are more valuable than a link that says other site. Evaluating the text in the links, along with who links where, is how the major ways search engines get feedback from external sources.

Search engines can look for noun-verb patterns in text, but machines can be taught to crank out text. There is limited cost to content creation, so search engines must look offsite to understand what a document is about.

Currently link analysis is the most effective way to determine document quality.

How Powerful is Link Text?
Many bloggers are politically outspoken and view George Bush in a less-than favorable light. Hundreds of people have linked to his biography page using the phrase miserable failure as the link text. Searching on the phrase miserable failure in Google, at the time of this writing, ranks the biography page of George W. Bush at the Whitehouse.gov web site as the #1 result in Google. It is a good example of just how powerful link text can be. More →

The Meaning of PageRank (PR)11.16.14

Google is primarily driven by linkage data.

The Google Toolbar provides a 0-10 logarithmic scale to mimic the link popularity of pages. PageRank helps provide a quick glance how important Google thinks a page is.

Google would like you to believe that their PageRank algorithm is the core of their search technology, but they also use many other technologies to improve their search relevancy.

Many webmasters exchange links with as many people as they can, but there is an opportunity cost to everything you do. There are algorithms for sorting good links from bad links. Many link schemes increase your risk profile much quicker than they increase your potential rewards. When you link into the wrong circles, you run the risk of being associated with them.

It is important to note that this PageRank value is only one component of the Google search engine algorithm. Many times, a PR 4 site will rank above a PR 6 site because it was optimized better and has a well-defined descriptive inbound link profile, which means better, more natural links from more sites (and more related sites).

Yahoo!'s Editorial Approach to Search11.02.14

Yahoo! believes that a hybrid of human review and mathematics works better than just math alone. Sites included in the Yahoo! Directory or in the Yahoo! Search Submit program are given an editorial review. Yahoo! also has their editors review portions of the web. It is believed that sites that receive a review may be given a ranking boost. Yahoo! grants 501(c) tax-exempt organizations and many educational websites free inclusion into the free side of their Content Acquisition Program.

"Alexa Rank Comparison" Tool10.19.14

The Alexa page ranking bar is used by many websites. This aids in calculating the web traffic that actually visits any particular site everyday. Alexa calculates the page rank of a page using the aggregated traffic results for three months. This not only depends on the number of the visitors but also considers the number of users. The current rank of the website is also compared with that of three months ago. This tool comes with a form which you need to sill up. Once this is done completely it will show the graph which depicts the ranking of your website.
