Ever realized why the Google Search puts some websites on the first page and others down the order - for the same search string. Google uses a proprietary Search Engine Page Ranking Algorithm that ranks Websites for every search, so that the users get the most desirable results. Here are the factors that the Google Search Engine uses to rank websites :- 1) Keywords In URL. 2) Keywords in Domain Name. 3) Keywords In Title Tag. 4) Keywords In Description Meta tags. 5) Keywords In Keyword Metatag. 6) Keyword Density In Body Text. 7) Keywords In Heading, like, H1, H2 and H3, etc. 8) Keyword In Alt Text. 9) Existence Of Site Map. 10)Freshness Of Pages, i.e. new pages added. 11) Freshness - Amount Of Content Change. 12) Linking of your Website to High PR Websites. 13) Size of the site - Google likes big websites. There are many other factors too, but the above are the key ones. If you adhere to the above, your website sure will come up on the "Google Search". Again...... remember...... overdoing on the above factors can lead to "Over Optimization Penalty"....... Good Luck !!!!!!!!!
