SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING
Search Engine Genie is a full service search engine marketing company involved in the business of ranking sites for search engines like google, yahoo MSN etc, - Everyone thinks there is a lot of difference between SEO ( Search engine optimization ) and SEM ( search engine marketing ).But the fact there is only a thin line between SEO and SEM.
As per statistics over 85% of all new visitors to a web site originate from major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, AOL and others.It is very important that every site ensures that their search engine exposure help their visitors ( potential customers ) to find them,
There are 2 distinct factors involved when it comes to search engines and their algorithms,
On page factors
Onpage factors is optimization done on the Page, like the modification of html code, title, Meta, Alt and other tags helpful for SEO,
Off page factors
Offpage factors are optimization done off the Page, like getting relevant links from other sites, link exchange with quality relevant sites, choosing relevant anchor text from the perfect location on the different pages of different sites, etc,
A search engine algorithm is designed just like
the way human's treat each other, Say someone applies for a job
in a MNC ( Multi National Company ) for a very high post.
Following are the basic requirements needed for the candidate:-
1. Good training to handle that post (On page factors - On page factors are the changes you make to your site physically, this includes optimizing Html Design Elements, optimizing internal link structure, writing good contents that suits the site needs,
2. Good qualification, academic wise- Candidate needs apporpriate qualification,( again comes under On page factors)
3. Other individual qualities-( very important On page factor. Some leading search engine optimizers who are well reputed in the industry often ask this question themselves while optimizing a site.Why should a site rank high among millions of sites which has the same words in them. That is where a site should posses individual quality., If it stands out amount other millions of sites then optimizing the site is much easier and it will rank high without much effort ).
4. If needed recommendation (off page factors - these are given more weight in search engines than in real life because not many peopl can manipulate this factor, you cant make a good site to link to you unless you provide valuable information impressive to them, If some one recommends I am valued more (so it is a only bonus thing a recommendation or a vote is just an added quality to an individual, This is how links work for search engines and that is why they are given weight, ( One company refers me as a genius(anchor text power for me), Other company recommends me as smart guy(anchor text in real life), Other company recommends me as "excellent guy capable of handling large projects"(anchor text),
So a company first prefers individual qualities only then they go to recommendations, this is how search engines wants to work too and this is how google has strived to work.
There is always a near balance between content and links in search engines, Both are important for a good site, When it comes to usability both are very important when it comes to SEO it depends on the competition on the keywords,
For a less competitive phrase we can just rank by on page factors.
For medium competitive phrases 75% - 25% it can go either way, it can be 75% content or 75% links,
For competitive phrases it is something like 60% links and 40% onpage factors. So only in competitive field large amount of valuble links are very important but as we know without contents there is no use in having lots of links.
SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING AND GOOGLE
Google is one of the major search engines but it also provides search results to other major partners, including AOL and Netscape Search. Google results are really good.
There are a lot of features where INKTOMI or Alltheweb.com
cannot compete with Google. Google is well advanced and IMO they
will remain to be the next generation search engine.
Let us see what Google has to say about their own technology
" Google runs on a unique combination of advanced hardware and software. The speed you experience can be attributed in part to the efficiency of our search algorithm and partly to the thousands of low cost PC's we've networked together to create a superfast search engine.
The heart of our software is PageRank™, a system for ranking web pages developed by our founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University. And while we have dozens of engineers working to improve every aspect of Google on a daily basis, PageRank continues to provide the basis for all of our web search tools.
PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important."
Important, high-quality sites receive a higher PageRank, which Google remembers each time it conducts a search. Of course, important pages mean nothing to you if they don't match your query. So, Google combines PageRank with sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines all aspects of the page's content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it's a good match for your query.
Google's complex, automated methods make human tampering with our results extremely difficult. And though we do run relevant ads above and next to our results, Google does not sell placement within the results themselves (i.e., no one can buy a higher PageRank). A Google search is an easy, honest and objective way to find high-quality websites with information relevant to your search. "
SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING AND YAHOO
Yahoo is an other important search engine which shares the top search engine market with Google, Before Yahoo was powered by search results from Google, Now Yahoo uses its own results, The raw data comes from INKTOMI crawler which yahoo Owns, Yahoo optimization is more focused on Onpage factors,
Yahoo has launched a New PFI program called Overture Sitematch,
Overture Sitematch - Replaces Inktomi Paid for inclusion Altavista paid inclusion And Fast paid inclusion.
