Top Search Engines Rankings Myths Exposed

Trues and Lies about “Google” rankings demystified by Jonathan Leger

I have found an interesting free PDF document to download from Jonathan Leger: “Search Engine Myths Exposed”. On it Jonathan goes through top Myths about Search Engine Rankings, especially Google rankings and tries to demystify them, he uses lots of graphics, images and examples.

The following are the Myth discussed in the document:
Myth #1: Google Knows All and Sees All
Myth #2: Google Will Not Rank Duplicate Content
Myth #3: You Must Get Links from Related Subject Sites to Rank
Myth #4: Your Site Must Focus On One Subject To Rank
Myth #5: High Page Rank Means Good Rankings
Myth #6: To Maintain Good Rankings, You Must Add New Content
Myth #7: The Biggest Myth: Ranking in Google is Hard

I enjoyed very much reading the document, it goes through details of important aspects of achieving high rankings in Search Engines (Google), but I believe it generalizes without having in mind important aspects such:

Keyword competition
Anchor text
Quality of links
Trust of the site

For example: Google will not rank dup content — It depends, it has to do with how competitive the Industry is, and keyword competition. If you are not in a competitive Industry and you are trying to rank for low competitive keywords then you might get away with it. Duplicate content does hurts your rankings, if your site’s content is copied from other sites, or you have many similar pages on your site, they will hardly be displayed in search engine result pages (SERP’s).

You must get links from related subject sites to rank — again, it depends how competitive the Industry and keywords you are trying to rank for.

With that said, what I mean is the more competitive the Industry and keywords you are trying to rank for the more difficult it’s going to be to rank and it’s going to take a bigger effort.

You should take this reading with a grain of salt, practice, experience and see how it works for you, and your Industry and the risks algorithm shifts present in your rankings if you do not play by the rules Search Engines have established. Be helpful to your Community… if people talks about you and recommend you then you win.
