Google’s New Site Ranking Criteria

What did Google’s Panda and Penguin Algorithms accomplish?

Because of recent Google updates in the form of algorithms called “Panda” and “Penguin,”  an Internet website needs its optimization “firing on all cylinders” in order to “rank” in the search engine results.

Google created the “Panda” algorithm to sort through the content of Internet websites in such a way as to require that content to be more relevant to the end-user who is conducting the Internet search.

Many websites that used to appear high in search engine result rankings didn’t achieve their high rankings by utilizing relevant content but, instead, by the use of “spammy links” linking to their sites.

Then Google rolled out the “Penguin” algorithm, which was used to eliminate those websites that were ranking because of spammy links and only spammy links.

To avoid future problems with your website, and if you unable to accomplish the above your best bet would be to hire an SEO professional, give that pro as much information about you and/or your website as possible (including key words and key word phrases) and let that SEO specialist rewrite your site’s content to make it more relevant to those who search the Internet for the products or services your site offers along with fixing any tags that need attention.  An SEO specialists can also help you obtain relevant links for your website, not the spammy links that so many use.

Bottom line… get your site ready before any of the new algorithms take affect. Make sure it’s compliant and has what Google’s looking in a website. That way you won’t have to scramble after the fact.  As my dad would say “fix things before they go sour”.
Taking precautions will make life much easier.
