Google Traffic Report Card-Does Your Website Pass? Part 1


This is part 1 of a 7 part series that examines the 7 factors of incoming links that Google considers when choosing a spot for your website in it's SERP's.

Why incoming links? First because these are what Google places the maximum value on. But, all incoming links are NOT created identical. This 7 part course looks at the kinds of links Google values when "rating" your website in the SERP's. Each type of link discussed is significant to your on the whole link approach and accordingly your free traffic levels.

The first factor is of course the newscaster text used in your incoming links. The significance of the keywords used to link to your website are more important to Google than the content that is in point of fact on your page. You can generally use anchor link text with your keywords and not even have the keywords on the page and still get a good ranking in Google for that term if enough incoming links have that keyword pharse in them.

If you've heard of the phrase "Google Bombing" then you know what I'm talking about. Essentially it's when a set of webmasters or blog owners decide to get a page ranked for a certain term and all leave links back to the selected site with the keyword phrase that they want that page to rank for.

The "Google Bombing" was done by at most a few hundred links with this link text pointing to the page. Though more links would in all probability be necissary for a more competative term. Still, it goes to show how important link text is to the rankings of a page.

Google Bombing is nothing new. But what many people don't realize is that Google places more application on the anchor link text that it finds when it first discovers a link to your website. Each consequential link either adds value to that first consciousness or subtracts from it.

Many times you can control which link Google finds first just by knowing where Google goes recurrently and effectively placing your link in its path. This is called "baiting" the Google bot to visit your website through this link.

Each link you place after this preliminary link should supplementary show Google that their first thought was and still is correct. Each subsiquent link is a "vote" so to speak to corroborate Google's original thought of what your website is about.

Placing that first link to be found by Google is only the first step, but a very important one. Choose your anchor text keywords vigilantly. Each incoming link you place after this one should serve to make lawful this first impression.
