Google SEO Guide

November 13th, 2008 by admin

A basic Google SEO Guidelines Document was released yesterday.  If you are interested in Search Optimization, its worth reading.

It’s more a less a starter guide for Search Engine Optimization, and covers these topics:

  • Good practices for page title tags
  • the “description” meta tag
  • URL Structure
  • Site Navigation
  • Good practices for content
  • Anchor text
  • Heading tags
  • Image Optimization
  • Make effective use of robots.txt

Here is what Google had to say about their SEO Guide:

Our Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide covers around a dozen common areas that webmasters might consider optimizing. We felt that these areas (like improving title and description meta tags, URL structure, site navigation, content creation, anchor text, and more) would apply to webmasters of all experience levels and sites of all sizes and types. Throughout the guide, we also worked in many illustrations, pitfalls to avoid, and links to other resources that help expand our explanation of the topics. We plan on updating the guide at regular intervals with new optimization suggestions and to keep the technical advice current.

Good show Google.  We love when we get to hear from the horse’s mouth what’s really going on.
