How to Look at Your Website the Way Google Does
How Google Checks Your Website
Google uses several tools and software for determining the quality of content that your website is producing. It makes sure if you are following the Google guidelines and SEO rules or not and index your website according to the given factors.
GoogleBot crawls millions of pages every single day with the purpose of compiling the indexes of all the words that are present in the pages as well as their location. Besides that, the bots usually process information that is present in the key content tags and attributes, such as Title tags and Alt attributes. When a particular user enters a query, Google Bot searches all the indexes in order to find the relevant content and return the results that are highly useful for the user. Thus, if you are focusing on all the factors that are essential for SEO, Google will surely like your content and will rank it higher in the search engines.
Ways to Look at Your Website through the Eyes of Google
You should always pay attention to how Google sees your website while crawling. This gives you a better idea to identify the weak areas of your website and you start working for their improvement.
While visiting a website, GoogleBot pays attention the following things:
- The title of your content
Google notes down your whole title but actually only 65 initial characters are of vital importance as these are the characters that are shown to users when your website appears in the search engines.
- The meta description
Google pays a lot of attention to the Meta description of your website so try to make the 160 characters of your description worth reading.
- The alt tags of your images
Google actually cannot see your image but it can read the alt attributes of your images. So, try to optimize them in a great way.
