Do You Know The GOOGLE Dance

The Algorithm Shuffle

The Google Dance – as it has been called – was a period that a major indexing was taking place at the house of Google.

These major indexing updates took place about 10 times a year roughly once each month (36 days). Here is a link to a very good article on the Google Dance and what it was and what it has since become – thank goodness!

SEO And The GOOGLE Algorithm

What On Earth Is An Algorithm?

Each search engine has something called an algorithm, which is the formula that each search engine uses to evaluate web pages and determine their
relevance and value when crawling them for possible inclusion in their search engine.  A crawler is the robot that browses all of these pages for the search engine.

GOOGLE Algorithm Is Key

Google has a comprehensive and highly developed technology, a straightforward interface and a boatload of search tools which allow the users to easily access a variety of information online.

Google users can browse the web and find information in various languages, retrieve maps, stock quotes and read news, search for a long lost friend using the phone book listings available on Google for all of US cities and basically surf the 3 billion odd web pages on the internet! Don’t ya love technology?

Google boasts of having the world’s largest archive of Usenet messages, dating all the way back to 1981.  Google’s technology can be accessed from
any conventional desktop PC as well as from various wireless platforms such as WAP and i-mode phones, handheld devices and other such Internet equipped gadgets.

You probably knew about this thing called Google, but now you know a bit more about how it ‘thinks’.

Next, I’m going to talk about Googles Page Ranking System (PR) and how that comes into play when you are optimizing your pages for the search
engines results.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment before you take off.
