Ranking factors

Above are some of the most important ranking factors that we regard as being important and are on our checklist of must haves. This list is long to humans but search engines can monitor all of these items at the blink of an eye. And the easiest way to monitor what Google sees is Google Search Console. For a search engine to show your website love is to do a minimum amount of keyword research. This is done to know what people are searching for. You have to write for a search engine, and at the same time, they know if visitors bounce quickly the content on your site is less than adequate.

How does a search engine know you have good content

Google sees that a visitor picks your site from the search results and then comes back to google and then chooses some one else. Google surmises that your site did not answer their question. You will see this in Google Analytics as a high bounce rate.

You have to write for search engines but not let search engines be your god.Delivering excellent quality should be your aim. Google search results will follow.
