  • Spiders crawl sites looking for links and text, then explore the links in the same fashion.\nAll the information is stored in an index for easier retrieval.\nA search algorithm then ranks sites based on specific information and page relevance.\n\nThe reason you see different search results in different search engines is because the spider, algorithm and index is different in each search engine.\n
  • So this is what Schipul.com looks like on the front end to people\n
  • And this is what it looks like to search engines. Search engines only read code.\n
  • A spider will go through the code and follow the links and then crawls those pages.\n
  • And this is what your search results look like. \n
  • Sooo which search engines should you worry about? Actually search engines like Ask and AOL feed their results from the major players like Google so you don’t need to worry so much about them. This graph is from Bruce Clay, the godfather of SEO. \n
  • This slide shows the difference in search engines when using the same term\nThis is Google’s results versus Yahoo’s…you’ll notice the difference in algorithms \n
  • What do search engines look for? This is the SEO hierarchy of needs created by Bruce Clay who I mentioned earlier. It’s similar to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that says that at the bottom of the pyramid is food and shelter and at the top is self actualization. So you have to begin with the basics such as keywords and content before you tackle the other things like link development. You need to look at your site navigation and make sure it’s user friendly. If a person can easily navigate through your site then a search engine can too. Also, be sure to have good call to actions. Link development is at the top and it’s very important, but you have to have the other elements in place first.\n
  • Content is king. Update your content consistently, keep it relevant and be creative.\n
