Google Algorithm Exposed : SearchToons

SMS Text

The Google Algorithmic manner of ranking and serving relevant online and indexed documents to specific Google queries has been a mystery to many over the past decade, with search marketers and mathematicians working to expose the way Google ranks sites.

Here we look at two disciplines of figuring out the workings behind Google, and two concise calculations.

1. The Mathematical Interpretation of the Google Algorithm

2. The Search Marketer’s Interpretation of the Google Algorithm

Well, we don’t always need the $ in the equation, do we?

    PARA MI LOS DE GOOGLE HICIERON ESTE “CHISTE”

  • http://thenamelessthing Aeon Huff

    Same old, same old…these social sites are PACKED with geeks who have no purpose outside the realm of social sites, for whom reaching the top of Digg, or Shinn, or Stumble, or blah, or blah, ad nauseam is an end in itself.
    Whatever happened to GOOD CONTENT?
    It’s all just hooklines, headlines, stringlines, and a million other nothing snag-tags designed to propell geeks to the top of whatever currently fashionable geek social mountain is there to be climbed. Please make it stop, or I might fall asleep and not be able to wake up, it is SO boring…
    “I am my brand”. Ridiculously optimistic. Who the heck do y’all think y’all are, y’all?

      @ Aeon Huff: I entirely agree with you that unless your website has some substance and is selling a real product, you are not likely to get very far. As this article points out, if everyone is number one on google (for their particular keywords) then people will eventually start clicking on page 2 of google’s list of websites, or even page 3.

    Unless you just like doing things the hard way.

    Might have been better to post this yesterday but let’s have a sense of humor about this. If it was meant as link bait then we should all learn how effective this strategy is. I could learn a few things for my own glass jewelry and art jewelry site. Did you get the irony?

  • http://thenamelessthing.com Aeon Huff

    I’ve “got the irony” a million times and must surely be missing something..?
