How Google Uses Latent Semantic Indexing

How Google Uses

Latent Semantic Indexing

Latent Semantic IndexingMost people who have used the Internet, or even know
what it is know what Google is. But most people don’t
know what exactly it is that Google does.

Or rather what makes Google do what it does. Google
searches are able to be so accurate because of Latent
Semantic Indexing.

Latent Semantic Indexing allows a search engine to
determine what a page is about by searching for one or
more keywords selected by the user

It adds an important step to the document index
process. LSI records keywords that a document contains
as well as examines the document collection as a

By placing importance on related words, or words in
similar positions,Latent Semantic Indexing has a net effect of making the
value of pages lower so they only match specific.

Search engines such as Google try to figure out phrase


Search engines such as Google try to figure out phrase
relationships when they are processing keyword
queries, which in turn improve the rankings of pages
with related phrases.

This happens even when those pages are not focused on
the target theme. Some pages are too focused on one
phrase and they tend to rank worse than you would
expect them to.

In fact, some are even filtered out for being too over
optimized. Pages that are focused on a wider net of
related keywords tend to have more stable rankings.

Although the Latent Semantic Indexing algorithm doesn’t understand anything
about what the words mean, the patterns it notices
make the search engine look extremely intelligent.


Hope you get a feel on Latent Semantic Indexing please share with your friends,if you find this article helpful

Off page Seo

You probably already know you can’t rank a site for a competitive keyword without off-page SEO.

And with all the talk of PageRank, link building, and social signals, it’s easy to forget about on-page SEO.

However, white hat on-page strategies are a fantastic way to get more search engine traffic…without having to build a single additional backlink to your site.

And if you’re already well versed with everything “meta tag”, then this visual guide of advanced on-page SEO strategies by Backlinko.com should serve you well.

The content in the infographic s fairly self-explanatory, but here are a few of the most important points from the piece.

Loading Speed: This is one of the few ranking factors that Google has officially confirmed. So it’s worth taking the time to speed up your site. Here’s an excellent “non techy” tutorial from QuickSprout.com that will show you some simple ways you can make your site load more quickly.

Include Your Keywords in Your Title Tag: Keywords are the lifeblood of your SEO campaign. Make sure to include them in your title tag, preferably in the beginning.

Use LSI Keywords: LSI keywords are simple words that are synonyms of your target keyword. For example, if you were trying to optimize your page for “blue widgets”, you may want to consider adding LSI keywords like “buy blue widgets”, “blue widget reviews” and “blue widgets 2013”. You can find a gold mine of LSI keyword by searching for your target keyword in Google and scrolling down to the “Searched Related to…” area of the page.

Google Page Rank Is Dead – Or Is It?

Google Page Rank Is Dead – Or Is It?


google page rankFor a long time now, marketing gurus all over the world have been talking about Google page ranking. Page ranking is simply Google’s way of measuring your pages accordingly.

But there is a problem…

More and more we tend to see NO consistency with page ranking at all. Please don’t confuse the difference between “page ranking” & “search engine ranking“.  The two are completely different!

With this method of measurement, we could quickly see how much or how little a person has put into promoting their website. A high rank of 6,7,8,9,10 is sometimes held as something honorable to have for your site but does it really matter?

In some cases it does and in some cases it doesn’t.

As I have mentioned above, page ranking has nothing to do with your search engine ranking. It has everything to do with “importance“. The only problem is (like so many marketing ventures online), this measurement method is dying off with the rest of them. People online are very intuitive about these sort of things and tend to over saturate ways to beat them and improve on them quickly.

People all over the world are even still wondering how to increase their page rank. Now why would they do this???

Simple, it’s all about prestige. Even though marketing experts  weigh absolutely no importance on page ranking anymore, there are still literally 1000’s of business people out there that consider a high rank a good thing.

So I hear you say…How do you benefit from increasing your rank?

  1.  You will attract better quality websites to yours
  2. People will think your website has lasting power
  3. People will want to mimic what you do
  4. People will even think highly of you


exchange linksEven now, many people browsing the net look for high ranking websites to exchange links with.

So does trying to increase your website page ranking help you?

What you ultimately want to do is promote your website as much as you can in as many “RELATED ” places that you can and let search engines do their own thing.

Playing into search engines hands won’t help your company. Building a great web marketing foundation will attract exactly what you’ve been after….. MORE EXPOSURE!

Please take this seriously and always be on the look-out for other ways to promote your business, let Google’s page rank go and look at the future beyond PR ratings.

Hope this article helps you out!

google page rankThe Google page rank is calculated with an algorithm that is calculated with incoming and outgoing links of the page. It is as the name suggests a ranking system of pages. Your page rank is decided on the number of different criteria, standalone keywords, keyword in URL, and reciprocal linking. The Page Rank is rendered on the number of one way links that report back to your site and go out to other sites, and the other websites page ranks. Like everything about Google the formula for figuring out page rank is a mystery and Google will not reveal their code. Google page rank is a way for consumers as well as partners that may have an interest in you, to find out your web site value in terms of search engines.

Writing articles is an excellent way of gaining non reciprocal or one way links. The upside is you can gain a lot of traffic and one way links from award winners websites. Though Search Engines consider one way links superior to reciprocal links. Just remember links to such sites are one way links from your site to their site. Build unique content, and as many relevant high quality one way links as possible back to your site. One Way Links from High Page Rank Pages are your ticket to the top of the page rank leader board.

Do-it-Yourself SEO for Beginners

Are you new to SEO and want to do-it-yourself but don’t know how to get started?

Want to Perform Your own Seo Campaign?


Find two options for doing SEO yourself here.

Seo for beginners

You may want to perform SEO services on your website by yourself but do not know how to get started. You probably have always wanted to get involved more with SEO but simply do not have the time. Unfortunately this is usually caused by the misconception that SEO is easy to implement and does not take a lot of experience. Even though SEO does require experience and time there are several options out there to start doing SEO on your own and be successful.


Option 1: Become an SEO Expert
This is the hardest path to take to implement SEO on your website while yielding the greatest personal satisfaction. You will want to start by spending lots of time reading books and online articles to catch up on the latest SEO trends, practices, and methods. Next you should start experimenting with different methods you learn about, analyze the results, and change your website again. This is the continual learning process of search engine optimization and takes a great amount of time, energy, patience, and resources. However after several months when you start to realize the benefits of your work it will yield a great deal of satisfaction.

This option is recommended for those if you want to start offering SEO services as a part of your business or if you have multiple websites that you manage. If you only have one website and do not plan on providing SEO services to others this route is probably not ideal considering the time involved to make it successful.


Option 2: Find a Professional SEO Guide
This is the ideal option for most people who want to start internet marketing on their own, learn more about the industry, and yet not invest a considerable amount of time in the project. There are several SEO consultants who would be happy to guide you along the way and assist you in creating a successful online campaign. With this option you will not have to learn everything on your own but will have an experienced professional at your side to assist you in creating a successful campaign. The most difficult aspects of SEO could be handled by your consultant while you could manage SEO implementation.

For example your consultant could assist you in developing a keyword phrase list, sample methods of finding link partners, guidelines for using title, alt, heading, bold, internal link, and meta tags. After you have finished working on a few key pages you could request your consultant review your work and give you further suggestions. At first you will probably rely heavily on your consultant for advice but as time goes on your reliance on your consultant will diminish as you become more affluent in SEO practices and techniques. Another important service your consultant should provide is monthly or weekly progress reports. They will most likely have access to software that will enable them to generate reports such as rankings, keyword phrases, incoming link, and others. Consultants can usually provide other valuable insights to help your business succeed online on subjects such as PPC, conversion, usability, professional image, email campaigns, banner advertising, and other online marketing options.

Although this method will require some investment on your end it is far less expensive than a full-service SEO package and over time the cost will diminish as you become adept at SEO yourself.

How to Decide which Option is Best:
When deciding between these two options the most relevant question to ask yourself is how much time do you have to invest in SEO. Through experience I would estimate that having an SEO consultant at your side will reduce the time you need to invest in your SEO project by about 50-75%. You must also determine how competitive your industry is. The difference between a national web hosting company and a local pest control company can play a huge factor in how much time will be required to be successful. Whichever path you choose as long as you are dedicated and determined you will succeed!
