Search Engine Marketing - Getting Top Search Engine Ranking

This article discusses Getting Top Search Engine Ranking. There is a pervasive myth among web site managers that simply submitting your web site to hundreds of search engines will increase traffic to your site. Another myth is that simply inserting META tags in your Web pages will also increase your traffic. Both are just not true. So what works? Search engine positioning - that is by far your best and most affordable bet. Consider these statistics: Over 95% of Web users find what they are looking for by visiting the top 6 search engines. Google alone handles hundreds of millions searches and page views each month.

Many of these searches are for the products and services that you deal in, guaranteed! Everybody knows that even a few good positions on even one or two important keywords or phrases can drive thousands of quality visitor traffic to a Web site per day. Research has shown that people hardly ever go past the top 30 search results for any one search. The top 10 results receive 78% more traffic than those in position 11 to 30 do. The top 30 results get over 90% of the search traffic. This alone explains why some sites do so well and others so disappointingly, and why it is such an advantage to be ranked highly.

So how do you position your web site at the top of search engine results? the most  important thing is that you get other sites to link to your site. The more quality sites point to your website the better your position on search engine results pages.

If you decide to do it yourself, be prepared to invest a considerable amount of time on them - beating the search engine algorithms is not an easy matter! Usually, a page that ranks well on one engine may not rank well on other engines. Assuming that you want to make sure that you are ranked highly on the top engines Google Yahoo and Bing, you have to work at getting more links to your site.

There are lots of good sources that now tell you exactly what the search engines are looking for in a page that will rank highly. (One of the best sources for search engine information is

The hard part is in actually including these elements in your site HTML! Basically, this is what it would involve:

First, you have to realize that ranking criteria varies from search engine to search engine. Beside links, most evaluate the placement of keywords or keyword phrases on various parts of your pages based simultaneously on all these criteria:

  1. Prominence of the keyword searched - how early in a page a keyword appears.

  2. Frequency of the keyword searched - number of times the keyword appears. Be careful about this. Simply repeating the keyword will not work because grammatical structure and keyword weight also plays a role.

  3. Site Popularity - a few search engines consider how popular your site is when ranking.

  4. "Weight" of the keywords - that is the ratio of keywords to all other words. Each search engine has a threshold. If your page crosses that threshold, the engine labels it as spam and ignores it.

  5. Proximity of keywords - how close together the keywords are to each other, especially when the item searched for is a phrase.

  6. Keyword Placement - these are the locations where an engine will look for the keyword, e.g. in the body, title, META tags, etc.

  7. Grammatical structure - some engines consider grammar in their calculations. They do this to make it harder for spammers to do their thing.

  8. Synonyms - some engines look for words similar in meaning to the keyword.

As you can see, the ranking criteria is highly dynamic, using a complex algorithm that integrates all the above factors in various proportions and with various maximum and minimum values. An important criteria to look deeper into is the keyword placement criteria. These are the various places that engines look for keywords:

  • Keywords in the <TITLE> tag(s) - VERY IMPORTANT

  • Keywords in <H1> or other headline tags-VERY IMPORTANT

  • Keywords in the <AHREF=""></A> link tags

  • Keywords in the body copy

  • Keywords in ALT tags

  • Keywords contained in the URL or site address, e.g.,

To fully cover the process of figuring out the parameters of each criteria for each search engine is beyond the scope of this article. Put simply, there are several ways to come up with doorway pages, depending on the resources at your disposal. What you would need to do if you were doing this manually would be to do a search on a keyword or phrase in a search engine. See what page ranks highest for that keyword. Make sure that the actual page is the same one displayed in the search results and not a redirected page. Then meticulously inspect that page and create a doorway page that beats that page on all the above criteria, without going too far as to cross the engine's thresholds. You would, for example, make sure that your keyword or phrase appears in all the places that it does in the page you are studying, and it does so just a little more often, and in a weight just a fraction of a percentage point higher.
