Detection of Google Domain Penalization

Sometimes the effort we make to position a website is fruitless, and the client and the SEO wonder why.
A full penalization is obvious: the website disappears from the search engine under every keyword, even under its own domain name. It won’t have a Google PageRank, not even zero. And it is common for a domain banned from Google to rank perfectly well in Yahoo and the other search engines, more lenient penalizers.

Site-specific stop words in Google: what they tell us about the indexation quality

This is the 4th article in the Googleometry Project Series.

Saturation is usually defined as the number of indexed pages in a website. However, supplemental results can be a significant part of the indexed pages, with no ranking value whatsoever. So, a deeper analysis of saturation and indexed pages is needed.

We define 3 kinds of poorly indexed pages:

– Foreign Pages: pages not assigned to any known language, so it show only if the searcher uses “all the Web” in the Language Preferences.

– Pages non associated to keywords: the only appear in the listings when you request site:domain.com, but they have no keywords associated with them. So, they are useless.

– Pages in the Reduced Indexation Set. Those pages are shown when a Stop Word appears in the search query. This indexation is probably limited to the page Title alone.
We researched the effect of combined searches such as:

site:domain.com keyword1 OR keyword2

Experiments were performed along several days, but data sets need to be obtained in the same day, because there is some day-to-day variation.

We found these consistent indicators of website indexation quality:

– number of pages within English filtered pages, versus pages for all the Web. This setting is modified in the Preferences section of Google. Google not only supplies English pages, but also quality-filtered pages. Most pages in any Web search are discarded in the English-only search, although they are in perfect English. These works equally for Spanish or French pages.

For some reason, the English searches tend to place the Supplemental results inside a link, the well known: “In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries….”, while the Web searches directly add the Supplementals at the end of the regular organic results. 

Stop Words are specific for each site.

Life imitates Digg

Ideas have a complex, little-known dynamics. As humans do, they are born, grow, reproduce and die. In the struggle to survive they fiercely fight other ideas. Being slim, original, useful and fertile are good attributes for them, while complexity, similarity to others and poor expression are forces that keep ideas in the obscurity.

We idea-marketers are in charge of dressing-up ideas and send them thru the appropriate channels into the battlefield. Digg.com is one of the preferred channels, because of the wide exposure for winners. In addition to sending my fighters to Digg, I optimize them for Google and Yahoo. In the Web business that activity is known as SEO, search engine optimizing. To advance the comparison, getting a good position in the search engines is like a long tournament between 2 knights, where horse, armour and other weaponry play a heavy role. Digg is  more like box: only pure idea strength leads to victory, in no more than one hour.

Speed is critical in our times. Today, the 100 Year War would be a 100 Minute War.  A Digg posting titled “Let’s Declare War on Britain (or France, or Iran)”, will soon get a couple of diggs with several buries, and that would be the end of it. A huge bullet saving.

It happens that many ideas in Real Life, as in Digg, are faced more often with indifference than with opposition. If my boxer is good but unknown, he will probably never reach Madison Square Garden. On the other hand, a John Doe pushed by Don King will get immediate exposure.

Digg has the “celebrity effect” built into his algorithm, privileging the known, successful coaches. Once you are famous, you blow your nose and you are in the news. If you are a Top Digger, your crap will always be noticed. It is a combination of good diggs and buries, good submissions and good friends, what gets Digg fame. As any politician knows, if you vote for the proper guys, and against the bad ones, and you have many powerful friends, you get to the top. Again, life follows Digg…

Do box promoters ever fix matches? Do actresses ever sleep with a producer to get a role? Quite likely.

Do Web Promotion agencies ever force a Digg story to the top, using Black Hat techniques? Also true.

Black Hat, in SEO terms, means doing what the search engines, or Digg, do not want you to do…

In both lives, virtual and real, those with a decent budget and a good manager have an edge against the immense competition.

Winners of the Innovar Contest 2007

I wrote an article about the winners of the Innovation contest in Argentina, with images and a brief description of each invention.

http://www.domaingrower.com/innovar-contest.htm

Since it was full with the photos I preferred to publish it as a separate page, with tables, in this website.

I also submitted the article to Digg.com, to see if an original article with quality contents (not mine) could climb to a decent ranking in Digg.

The poor results confirm that you need a little “push” from paid voters in order to get decent exposure in such a croweded unspecific social network.

A keyword-independent measure of search engine positioning

So far, it is not possible to compare multi-keyword positioning (ranking) results in google or yahoo. Positions are not additive, because every keyword has a different difficulty. Obviously, it is better to be 1st of 100 than 1st of 10.

However, is it better 1st of 100 or 2nd of 1000? How about any other non-obvious pair of rankings?

Moreover, things get complicated when there are more variables: in addition to position (rank) and total number of SERP (search engine result pages), the search engine and the specific keyword.

The ideal measure of search engine positioning should have these properties:

– easy to calculate

– additive

– representative of the difficutly and merit of the positioning

– correlate with commercial results for the ranked site

– reflect the habits of the search public

It is known that most people search Google or Yahoo for the first 5-6 results. However, to cover the whole population, we need an idea of the math explaining this behavior, like an asymmetic Poisson distribution curve.

When several SEO companies want to compete, they create a contest with a single keyword or keyphrase: ‘mangeur de cicogne’, ultramarine nigritude and other nonsensical, unique, rarely sought phrases. This method is cumbersome, takes time, and otherwise useless. And it is completely separated from real life situations.

It would be much better to have a method to compare existing positioning results.

Thus, I proposed the SEPI, Search Engine Positioning Index, as:

 SEPI = Total SERP x Keyword Difficulty ^2 / Position ^2

Keyword Difficulty can be estimated by the PageRank of the tenth page for a Google search on the keyword. 

You can use this online calculator

This index is useful for:

– comparing results of SEO software or SEO campaigns

– comparing SEO companies.

– charging customers by SEO results

– measuring the effectivity of tools and techniques, applied to the same or different web sites.

We need consensus from the SEO webmaster community, or suggestions to improve this index.

New blog platform – WordPress instead of Bblog

The aging ‘bblog’ platform is being decommissioned. It is not being supported since 2005, and we need to change. WordPress has more friendly URLs, more security, no use of global variables, more plugins and so on.

We intend to write in here short abstracts of the better postings in the old system, to avoid losing the old addresses. Eventually we will announce a permanent redirect in our .htaccesss file, which is the better form to explain the changes to the search engines, without losing ranking.
