How Does Google Use Keywords to Determine Relevance on Your Pages

All of us would like to rank our pages high in Google’s search results, and as time passes, the factors that determine where your pages rank is constantly changing.

While SEO is at least partially a crap shoot, we can make educated determinations about what we ought to do and ought not to do to our pages to try and get them found highly in Googles search results.

In a search world not so long ago and far away, you could get top rankings just by stuffing as many of your primary keywords into your content as you could reasonable fit. Not any more. These days Google’s search algorithm has gotten smarter, and is able to discern a great deal more intent, and recognizes keyword stuffing instantly.

This is not to suggest you can’t do well by strategically inserting keywords in all the right places. Indeed, you need to do this. You just need to do it naturally.

How to use keywords to increase your search rankings

Shaping your page content to go after a particular keyword ranking is something of an art. Often times the domain name might have little to nothing related to the keyword in question, and that is one reason keywords in domain names are no longer the signal they once were.

But not so important any longer are using them in the domain name, as that is impractical more often than not. Also, keyword META tags are not considered by Google.

What keyword tactics can hurt you

There are some ways you can shoot yourself in the foot in this respect as well. Keyword stuffing, that aforementioned relic of yesteryear, is but one.

Another way is through the improper use of anchor text in your site’s backlinks. Having all the backlinks that appear for a particular page show up with the same anchor text, and all be followed links, is a sure red flag in this current algorithm. Strive for as natural a link profile as you can build, and vary your anchor text with natural phrases that would occur, such as a few “click here” and the like.
