|SEO is Search Engine Optimization|
Possibly The Biggest Misconception About Ranking Well In The Search Engines
Onpage search engine optimization are things that you can change ON your webpage.
* Title tag
* Header tags
* Bolding, Italicizing, Underlining
* Alt image tags
* Meta Tags
Offpage search engine optimization comes down to basically 1 thing, which websites are linking to your wesbite and how they're doing it.
* Anchor text uses in your link
* The title of the page your link is on
* The page rank of the page your link is on
* The "theme" of the website your link is on
By now, I'm hoping you see that it's the offpage search engine optimization factors that will get your website to the top of the search engines. Again, the onpage factors are things you SHOULD do, but are not nearly as important as the offpage factors.
Ok... Let me show you why.
Let's analyze a website!
In this example I'm going to analyze the #1 ranked website on Google for the search term "click here".
First, let's go to Google and enter "click here".
You'll notice that the #1 ranked website is www.adobe.com. That's interesting...
Now, why would adobe.com rank #1 for that search term? I would think adobe.com would rank well for terms like:
* graphic design programs
* create printable documents
* web design programs
* and other keywords related to what they sell...
A few things that you should notice by looking at the picture above.
1. The word "click here" isn't in the page title
2. The word "click here" isn't in the URL of the website.
3. The word "click here" isn't even in the description listed by Google!
Now, let's click on the listing in Google and check out the actual webpage.
Now, get this... The words "click here" aren't even on the webpage, anywhere!
If all of those onpage optimization techniques that many SEO companies talk about were true, then don't you think a different website would rank #1 for this term?
Onpage optimization factors like:
* keyword density
* keyword prominence
* keyword proximity
* bolding, italicizing, underlining
are NOT critical to worry about when trying to rank well for a search term.
Yes, you should spinkle your keyword throughout the webpage and do the other onpage optimization techniques I've taught you in previous lessons, but again, I really want to drill this into your head. It is the offpage optimization that will increase your rankings in the search engines; specifically Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
Then why exactly does adobe.com rank #1 on Google for the term "click here"?
Let's do some website analysis on this adobe.com. I'm going to use a software product called SEO Elite to do this, but you can analyze the website manually if you choose to do so. I prefer SEO Elite because it only takes a few minutes, as opposed to several hours.
1. First, we'll select radio button 1.
2. Next, we'll enter the URL from Google into step 2.
3. Next, we'll select Google from the list of search engines.
4. Finally, click "ok" to run SEO Elite.
When it's finished running, let's click on the "report view" tab to view some of the results.
The first thing you should notice is the Google Page Rank of all of the pages linking to adobe.com. If you click the column heading within SEO Elite labeled "Google PR", it will sort the column in descending order.
You can see that the pages linking to adobe.com have an extremely high Page Rank. Any website with a Page Rank of 6 or higher are VERY high page ranks. There are only a handful of PR9 websites on the entire internet and a few are actually linking to adobe.com!
Next, let's click the "analysis view" tab.
If we click the column heading titled "anchor text", it will sort this column in descending order. We can quickly see that the words "click" and "here" are within the top 10 words listed in the left hand column.
Remember, the anchor text column will show you the number of times the word in the "Word" column appears in the actual anchor text of the link pointing to adobe.com
Anchor Text: Example) Click here to download Adobe Acrobat Reader... "Click here" is the anchor text in the example above.
So, by looking at the analysis above, we can see that the word "click" appeared in 16 of the links pointing to adobe.com and 6.8% of the total links pointing to adobe.com contained the keyword "click". The keyword "here" was found in 34 links pointing to adobe.com and appeared 14.5% of the time.
Reason adobe.com is ranked #1
The main two reasons that adobe.com is ranked #1 for the keyword "click here" is because:
1. The websites linking to adobe.com are very quality (have a high Page Rank)
2. The websites linking to adobe.com used the keywords "click" and "here" many times in the anchor text of the links linking to adobe.com
There are a few other offpage optimization factors that help adobe.com to rank #1, but those are the main two reasons. I hope you can clearly see the power of offpage optimization (linking).
So, the next time someone asks you what the proper keyword density is, the proper keyword prominence, the proper number of times you need to bold, italicize, or underline a keyword on your page... You can tell them that onpage optimization is NOT critical when ranking well for a given search term.
Until next time, happy optimizing!
