Hopefully, you have developed your own website, for your business or you might be thinking of creating the same.

But wait.

Here is a question for you.

Google Friendly website

The question is “Is your website Google friendly or are you creating a Google friendly website to get a ranking?”

If you are a non technical person or have little knowledge about website development, this question might be new for you.

But believe me, this is one of the most important question.

Why is it so?

What Google Prefers

You will agree here that any website, which is created and available on internet, is to provide, some useful information or knowledge, to the visitors or users.

Webmasters must know the purpose of their websites and content. Every website or page, which is created on the internet, is having a purpose or there might be multi purposes.

Websites and pages must be created, to give value to the visitors and this should be the main purpose, behind any website or content. If this is not given an importance by webmasters, then believe me, making a website is a waste of time and money.

Websites and pages, which are created with a certain and clear purpose, are easily recognized and get ranked.

For example, we can say that a website, which is created to provide daily news to the visitors, has a purpose of providing up to date information categorized in news, to visitors.

Website which is created to help visitors, in finding and applying for jobs, has its own purpose. Similarly, a website which is created for online shopping purposes is, to give value to visitors and treat them as their customers.

Here in this article we shall cover the requirements which must be considered by webmasters, to get their websites ranked.

Just look at, what users like.

What Users Like

What Users Like To See In Website

Here, users mean those people, who search some information on the Google.

Users prefer to visit and read, from those websites, having reliable source or author, easy to use and professionally developed.

Users want easy navigation and search on a website.

It is the psychic of users that they want information instantaneously and if the website does not serve this purpose, then users leave that website and move on to the next website. 

This “move on of visitors” badly affects the website, in terms of bounce rate, which is used as a measure of knowing interest of users, on a particular website.

Now we come to the main part of this article.

What Google Wants From Websites Generally

Google provides guidelines regarding various websites related matters. For the Google friendly websites, it gives importance, to the following key areas, which must be complied with, in order to get the website ranking and provide users, with great experience.

1 - Provide Users Information Which They Are Searching For

Websites should be having a great, high quality and unique content. The pages of website and its homepage should be filled with high quality content.

If some article is shared on a website, then that article should be professional, unique, detailed and full of information, which a visitor can expect on it.

Websites must fulfill the content related factors to make a site Google friendly.

The high quality and good content attracts the visitors and users, which help in increasing the worth of a particular website. If a website if high quality and unique content rich, then other websites and webmasters will link to that. 

Google ranks those websites easily which are having good quality content and quality back links.

Remember that quality backlinks are directly related to quality content. If your website’s content is not of high quality then you should not expect quality backlinks. This is simple.

This requires some thinking before writing and publishing articles on your website. You have to think, what people can search on Google, related to your topic. 

This helps you in the identification of relevant keywords, which when used appropriately in article or content, will make it Google search friendly. Google catches the keywords from the article and relates to the search query being made.

You need to include the keywords in your website. So always aim to write high quality, information rich and conclusive articles, on your website pages.

2 - Other Sites’ Linking With Your Website

When a search query is run on Google by visitors, the Google starts crawling the websites through its crawlers. Web pages are searched in response to a particular keyword search.

Those websites which are linked or you can say that, if a website is backed by many referrals websites, then Google picks up that website and shows it in its search results.

Linking of websites, help the Google crawler, to pick up the most relevant website, to be shown in its search results. Google does this task through systemized techniques and methods, which help crawler to match relevant texts, with search query made by visitor.

If a website has natural links, then Google gives it importance and these links are created when your website’s high quality content is attracted and considered important by other websites, for their users. To get the Google ranking, natural links play very significant role in making a website Google friendly.

It takes time and efforts to create the trust and high quality back links. In simple terms, the high quality automatically attracts people and visitors.

3 - Website Should Be Easily Accessible

As a webmaster, you should aim that your website is easily searchable and accessible. Pages should be linked and website must be easy to navigate.

If you are getting your website made by developer, then you should ask for a proper website with easy navigation. This is important to provide visitors with information easily.

You should remember that your website’s performance and worth is linked with navigation. Visitors are your customers and you must ensure that they are provided with, easy access to required information.

If visitors find a website poor or hard to navigate, then this badly affects a website and Google ranking is compromised here. These types of websites are not Google friendly websites.

4 – High Quality Pages

High quality website pages are preferable, to get the Google website ranking. To get an idea about high quality pages, you should aim to create the pages, which show the authoritativeness, expertise and trustworthiness.

Let us say that if a website is related to shopping, then website pages will be considered high quality pages, when the identity of the person behind the website is clear for visitors. 

It takes time and expertise to make the pages trustworthy and authoritative
