I came across this today as I was reading some blogs and doing some SEO research. Have you ever considered if Google webmasters actually do SEO on their own pages. I know that we all strive to better optimise our pages for the search engines like Google by performing the best SEO possible. But what do Google webmasters do?
Do they actually just cheat and have some hidden code to return their own pages at the top of the results pages (SERP) when searched for. Surprisingly, they do not. Like any normal mortal, they actually also analyse their pages and optimise for Google.
Proof of this can actually be found in a report at the Google Webmaster Blog, titled Google’s SEO Report Card. The report was created to help Google’s engineers, webmasters and employees better optimize their product pages for search engines. So I guess even Google practices SEO.
The report touches on many SEO topics including title tags, meta tags, heading tags, canonical URLs, image tags and link anchors. But the power of this report to us is that there is loads of examples included for each point that will be able to give you a better understanding on each point. More specifically you will be able to understand which is the right way and the wrong way to do things with regards to SEO.
Thanks to Daniel Scocco for pointing me to this through his blog. Find him at www.dailyblogtips.com
