PostPosted: Sat Aug 06, 2005 1:22 pm    Post subject: Site Google Rankings

Out of curiosity I have run a Google search engine ranking for our site from the most popular search parameters used (from site refers logs)
This is limited to the 1st 2 pages (top 20) of Google (10sites/page) except those marked "manual"
Results are:
Code:
Search Parameter       Current Rank        Best Rank

kakariki                  1                1
kakariki DoC              7                7   
kakariki breeding        39   (manual search)   
kakariki cage            41   (manual search)   
kakariki care             1                1   
kakariki feeding         44   (manual search)   
kakariki Breeding care    7                1      
kakariki mutation         1                1
kakariki hybrid           1                1   
kakariki blue             0                0   
kakariki food            94   (manual search)   
kakarikis                 5                5   
kakariki diet            10                7   
kakariki aviaries        10               10   
kakariki aviary          12               12   
kakariki vet              4                4   
kakariki sick             1                1   
kakariki conservation     3                3   
kakariki for sale        39   (manual search)


From our site 'refers logs' other search engines rate our site much higher (Google being the lowest) on all search parameters, usually in the top 3. looksmart, yahoo, Jeeves, msn, ninemsn, lycos, dog pile, ntworld, AOL to name a few.
We do have a problem with most search engines being able to crawl other areas of the site including Google. Something in my coding is stopping this and I don't know enough to fix....yet wall Fixing would have a dramatic effect.
As it is, I am very surprised and impressed at our overall rankings. Disappointed in a couple (breeding), compared to most other sites that rank higher, we have much more info. The others that do have top info are all members sites which is very pleasing.

As far as i know about google and other search engines, if you have a file called ROBOTS.TXT in the site HOME directory, and put in some parameters, the following site might be of help to you, explains most parameters that search engine spider crawlers use, so the site can get more hits on engines.

It also has parameters to stop parts of the site being crawled by googlebot and other engines.

Hope this is of help to you, and heres hoping kakariki.net hits the top in all search engines Wink Wink

Yes very much so but just that is more or less useless, its a combo of ALL of the following and coding hast to be done more or less in this order:
Meta tags, Site description, Site title, keyword/key phrase placement and optimisation, Alt tag optimisation, url rewrites (GT), robots.txt, Link exchange (which if done right one doesn't need to submit to search engines),Google site map (updated each week)
All of the above is completed
Removal of search engine dead internal links in forums (working on that) And Portal (almost done but cant get some of the code to work.) I also need to do code clean up to speed the loading time...Im not a coder, I do need someone who knows code to tidy stuff up for us...PLEASE!!!

The above is the 'mechanical' stuff...one can do all that and a site still not get anywhere...IF it does it will very quickly drop to.
WHAT DOES and most IMPORTANT to get it up there, and we ARE, is the quality of the sites content that keeps ppl returning, and the site design being user friendly. From that the site becomes active, with members active and returning visitors because it has something for them.
Once that happens the site climbs fast.
Most site Admins think/use gimmicks, fancy graphics, high membership, huge page hits are a measure of a successful site. These are very temporary things that have a very small and short effect...and a direction we have never taken from day 1.

Dear Steptoe,
I'm not kakariki's owner or fan really, but please can you tell me what are screenshots you posted in this thread from ? I mean what software are you using to check search engine popularity.

By the way, my searching keywords were not kakariki or related :) But google provided with your link :)


Thanks
