Do your website and content comply with the Google webmaster guidelines?

 

Digital marketing projects or campaigns for small businesses must comply with Google webmaster guidelines.

Be honest and natural with your content production and distribution; and you will comply with the Google webmaster guidelines.

Google has developed several webmaster guidelines and website tests to help Internet users to get the most relevant and useful information when they perform a Google search.

In this article we will list the main Google webmaster guidelines and website tests to help small businesses with their digital marketing campaigns.

“Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” 

Google wants to organize the world information to be able to deliver the most relevant and useful information to the search users. Google has designed the webmaster guidelines to reach this objective.

Google wants us to be honest and natural when we design and develop our websites and contents.

Basic principles for the guidelines are the following, copied from Google guidelines page:

“Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines.”

“Don’t deceive your users.”

“Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you’d feel comfortable explaining what you’ve done to a website that competes with you, or to a Google employee. Another useful test is to ask, “Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn’t exist?”

“Think about what makes your website unique, valuable, or engaging. Make your website stand out from others in your field.”
