Google releases search quality ratings Guidelines

By Terrance G Kern on November 23, 2015

Google Search Quality RatingsWe understand this to be the only time that Google has released a full document exposing how they rate a webpage and the authority thereof.  We are always on top of the latest things happening at Google because, we want to assure you get the best experience using our SEO services Dallas Google has released the complete version of the Search Quality Rating Guidelines that Search Quality Raters at Google use to rate the quality of the Google search results.

IF you can remember one of the only other time’s Search Engine optimization companies had and opportunity to get their hands on a full version was when it was leaked back in 2010/2011.   Get the full version here

From the reviewing of the document it seems to be an inside training manual developed to help end users evaluate the usefulness of the page that is coming up for search results.

Did Google really leak how they rank pages?

All in all this is not a complete leak of the Google algorithm and how to hack Googles ranking methods.  Instead, this is just a document used by consultants that help them rate the quality of the search results on Google.com and on Google’s test servers. Guidelines don’t necessarily equate to how search results are displayed.  Nevertheless, you now have the opportunity to look inside of the methods in which Google wants to show results.  It also allows you to get an Idea on the way Google would like to show their results.  Doing SEO for some time now and talking with other SEO’s about methods of ranking and providing Google information based on their latest Guidelines we find that what Google wants doesn’t necessarily mean that is what they are going to display.  Let’s dig into some main features we have found to be pretty important based on this release.

  1.  The Purpose of the page is important.  In the Guidelines Google specifically spells out that “The goal of PQ rating is to determine how well a page achieves its purpose?   Moving further on this topic Guidelines goes on to inform us that a page should be helpful and any time the page is deceiving, useless or harmful to a user it will receive a very low Page Quality.
  2. Website Reputation –  There is no question that Google will always be looking into what other authorities are saying to how informative or useful you website is to peer’s within the industry.  In sections 2.7 of the guidelines Google goes into different multiple layers of how to determine a sites reputation.  Layers such as reviews, how to research a reputation and where reputation comes from.

What are the Characteristics of a High Quality Page?

Here are the words from Google and then we are going to summarize what that say’s.  “What makes a High quality page? A High quality rating requires at least one of the following high quality characteristics:
• A satisfying amount of high quality MC.

• The page and website are expert, authoritative, and trustworthy for the topic of the page. • The website has a good reputation for the topic of the page.
In addition, the page and website should have most of the following:
• A satisfying amount of website information, for example, About Us information, Contact or Customer Service information, etc.

• SC which contributes to a satisfying user experience on the page and website. • Functional page design which allows users to easily focus on MC and use SC as desired. • A website which is well cared for and maintained”

Firstly, they are looking at “Main Content” and what that consists of.  Therefore, this has to be addressed so, your page is satisfying the main content criteria.  Secondly, Google is big on the authority or reputation of the source.  What is your expertise.  What type of awards have been allocated with.  How trustworthy are those sources.  It seems that reputation and expertise will always be big when it comes to high page quality.  Lastly,  the supporting pages that interact with the main content seems to be a signal on how the page is effectively referring other pages.  Doing SEO Houston you’ll see I just mimicked a solid example of how to reference a page for more information.  Matter of fact that page gives you some great insight on how to structure pages and referring domains.

All in All, the Guidelines has well documented examples on what is the highest of quality and what are the lowest quality of pages.  To get a more in-depth understanding of all of them individually you’ll want to read the full report.  We are hoping to have this accomplished this month:)

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

    Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

    On how she landed on her direction in life:

    “I always knew I was meant to be working in art, I just never knew how. In school, was so confused and always switched my majors around. In 2015, I decided to take a break from school to help out at home and that’s when I discovered my passion for fashion illustration. I drew/a> an illustration of Jhene Aiko and she liked it on Instagram. It kind of grew from there.”

  10. Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    A court has ruled that the building is illegal, and the €57 million ($64 million) Chateau Diter will now have to be knocked down.

  12. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
