In further steps, algorithms analyze the pages in the index accounting for hundreds of ranking factors. These factors determine in what order and in what form the relevant pages in the Search Result Pages (SERPs) for a specific search query.
|Search engine results pages are the pages that a search engine returns in response to a searcher’s query. They include a mix of search results from organic searches, extra information generated by the engine provider like Rich Text Results, and paid results taken from advertisements.|
In the library analogy, the librarian has cataloged every single book and can thus tell readers precisely which title answers to contains the questions asked. Ranking factors can represent aspects of the user experience that are considered. Appreciate in this way, Searchbots show how well a website can give the searcher what they are looking for.
Search algorithms are designed to find relevant pages and provide users with an efficient search experience. Search engine providers are in fierce competition with each other. Optimizing your website and content can influence the algorithms to analyze your pages better and help you rank higher in search results. See your work on SEO as a win-win situation. As better algorithms can understand your pages, as better are the search results for the users.
SEO is a fundamental part of digital marketing. A search on the Internet using search engines is often the primary source of digital traffic for websites and complements other marketing channels. Greater visibility and ranking higher in search results than your competitors will significantly impact the visibility of your content and, therefore, your success.
The search results of search engine providers have developed significantly in recent years. A key goal of the improvements is to provide more direct answers and information to users, and searchers are more likely to stick to the search engine results page rather than directing them to other websites. The improvements in the search results include features such as Rich Results and Knowledge Panels, which increase the visibility of the results and direct users to the results pages that can provide information.
Overall, SEO is the foundation of a holistic marketing ecosystem. If you understand what your website users want, you can implement this knowledge in your campaigns (paid and organic), your website, social media properties, and more.
