As a full-time webmaster and site owner, figuring out just what Google wants has been the most challenging aspect of running an online business. For many webmasters Google is the eight ton elephant in the room and you only have two options: upset the elephant and get trampled or quickly find out what it likes to consume and try to feed it.
In order to keep Google fed, webmasters have to jump through more than one set of hoops. When it comes to getting top rankings in Google’s Index or SERPs, there are 200 of these hoops or ranking factors. And if you want to play in Google’s ballpark, you have to try and master the majority of them.
For years, frustrated webmasters have been guessing and searching for these ranking factors. Asking what does Google want? How does Google rank pages and keywords? How does Google want you to build your site?
Ten years ago it wouldn’t have mattered what Google thought of your site for it wasn’t even in the picture, but now when it comes to online search, Google is king of the hill. And as we all know, kings get whatever they want.
Besides, any webmaster worth his salt, knows Google is what counts when it comes to organic traffic – you can achieve #1 spots for a keyword in all three top search engines (Yahoo and MSN being the other two light-weight contenders) but Google will simply deliver the most traffic to your site.
Google doesn’t as yet have a monopoly on web search, but it’s getting close to 70% of U.S. traffic and in some countries it’s up over 90%. But it’s not only the search numbers which makes Google king – it is the prestige and power of the Google brand name. Google has truly permeated into popular culture and the public psyche like no other brand name in history.
Google brings respect and trust into the equation. Web users respect and trust Google to give them a quality answer to their question. That’s why it was rather ironic, that for years webmasters have been asking Google about their ranking system, their algorithm, their practices… for years Google remained for the most part silent. This was mainly to keep at bay, those who would like to “game” the system in order to get high rankings within Google.
Until now that is, maybe it’s just me but doesn’t it appear that Google is suddenly opening up about its whole ranking procedures and what they expect from webmasters. Maybe the answers have always been there, we just couldn’t find them. However, a more likely scenario is that someone high up within Google made the decision to be more transparent with it comes to webmasters and how much they would tell them.
In recent Webmaster live chats, Googlers Matt Cutts, Maile Ohye, among others… have been honestly answering questions about what Google requires webmasters to do regarding their sites. These are Q&A sessions dealing with the “burning questions” webmasters have had for years concerning Google and what Google wants. Do a search in Google for “Google Webmaster Help | Google Groups” if you will to find these sessions.
Since I run several modest sites on webmaster tools and Internet marketing I am approached by more than a few people who want me to help them build their online site or business. One of the major issues that always comes up somewhere in the process (usually phrased in different ways) is this question:
What does Google want? What does Google expect of my site? How do I get ranked high in Google?
Mainly because my chief goal is to help these webmasters understand Google better in order to build a profitable site; I have struggled and puzzled over this question for years.
What is Google’s Golden Rule?
Many experts believe it is related to relevancy – the key to getting high rankings is how relevant your content is to the question being asked? Maybe so, but in order to explain it to a would-be webmaster, I had to find the words that would most appropriately sum up Google’s prime directive?
After you go through all the SEO checkmarks, take into account the quality and uniqueness of your content, factor in the credibility and authority of your site and backlinks, and factor in the relevancy issue… this was the simple Google Golden Rule I came up with:
“Always think of your visitor first when creating any content for your site.”
This may or may not be what Google is expecting but all indications are pointing in the direction of the “visitor’s experience” and how good you or your content make that experience? Google is serving up a product, it wants the user of their product to be happy with the results. If they’re happy, Google is happy. And if everyone’s happy then the kingdom grows.
Still anything as simple and as complicated as getting top rankings in Google can’t be boiled down to a single catch phrase. You must do your homework and a good starting point would be to thoroughly read Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. Studying and listening to the latest Google webmaster chats may also prove beneficial and helpful.
However, there are still those 200 hoops you have to jump through and you must be extremely careful of how you build your site if you’re trying to please Google. Listen when the king speaks. Observe his rules. Be on your guard, and it helps to become just a little paranoid. And always, always remember, an elephant never forgets.

Samsung Moment May Get an Android OS 2.1 Upgrade by Month’s End
There is good news for those with a Samsung Moment who are getting impatient for an upgrade to the latest version of Google’s Android OS: this will reportedly be available in a week or so, bringing some significant new features.

For a smartphone with an operating system thatâs open and free, itâs been surprising to see a slew of Android phones that rival the high ends handset that use their more proprietary OS platforms like Symbian.Â Especially when we see them sporting features that, while decent, are quite common with many other high end phones costing less.
Among those features, you get 16 GB microSD support, high speed internet with 3G HSPDA, WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, stereo FM with RDS and GPS support.Â Thatâs what many Android phones have.Â And the new HTC Tattoo is no exception.
It also features a typical 3.1 mega pixel autofocus camera and a decent multimedia feature starting with a gorgeous 2.8â LCD TFT resistive touchscreen display, presumably with the usual accelerometer for automatic viewing orientation changes.Â HTC phones are not known to have great multimedia features as they are really meant to target the more serious corporate and business markets.Â But, just as a perfunctory nod to mobile phone trends, it makes business sense to put in all the bells and whistles weâve come to expect from mobile phones.
The HTC Tattoo from the Taiwan-based mobile phone novice runs on a powerful Qualcomm CPU clocked at 528 MHz with a 256 MB Ram and 512 MB ROM, engine features that are just as powerful as any Android phone out there. People often wonder if the Android phone requires so much power to run effectively, and thus, bring up its price rather unnecessarily while sporting the familiar touch-screen form.
But what makes the HTC Tattoo stand out is its affordability in the rumored â¬350 price point, that is, if you consider that affordable.Â This newest handset officially released by HTC is said to be the cheapest Android phone expected to hit the market during the last quarter of the year starting this October.Â If you are familiar with the high end HTC Touch 3G, then you have an idea how the Tattoo looks like, but using the Android OS instead of Windows Mobile.
This is HTCâs fourth Android handset and this time, it looks like the target market for affordable handsets should provide a wider market base for its line of Android phones.Â Does the Android have a mass appeal?Â That remains to be seen as they typically get snapped up by high end markets with their upscale price.Â Whether they can upgrade (or downgrade) from their Symbian, Windows and Linux handsets remains to be seen.Â The Android OS is actually a great mobile platform with so much promise and there are no royalties in its use by phone makers.
Yes, itâs the Android fanâs dream come true; a mobile smart phone running on a 1GHz Snapdragon with Googleâs Android software. Sadly, the Acer Liquid A1 will not be running version 2.0 Ãclair (or Flan for that matter).Â Instead, it will use the Android 1.6 Donut; which is good enough for those who are desperate for an Android fix.
The demonstration unit of the Liquid featured an under clocked Snapdragon running at 768 MHz, fast – but not the full 1 GHz of power that the Qualcomm processor can deliver. Still, that little tech demo is more than enough to make us even hungrier for this Donut.
Word of advice, keep a hold on your wallet. There has been no confirmation regarding when this device will come out, well, Acer just made it formal that the device will definitely be released.
New in the Business
For those who are wondering why Acer is venturing into the mobile phone industry, the question is, why not? With Apple already deep in the hot tub, it’s not uncommon to see other computer manufacturers delve into the industry. Plus, ever since smart phones have taken the place of pocket PCs in society, mobile phone are becoming more and more like really small laptops.
Acerâs previous mobile phone set for Windows Mobile Professional 6.5 is a series of conventional touch screen devices. The mobile phones were okay, but hardly anything special. Hopefully Acer will provide a better sense of design know-how when it comes to the Android; because as anyone would agree, an Android phone deserves only the best.
Acer officially stated that they have big plans for this device, we just hope they deliver. The high definition capacitive touch screen is impressive, no word yet if they are planning to put in multi touch capabilities. Considering that this will be running on a Snapdragon with amazing graphics capabilities, we are hoping to see excellent 3D graphics without any significant slowdowns or lag.
The rest of Acerâs release information is pretty vague, but we have confirmed a 5 mega pixel camera with geo tagging (yes, that means we have got confirmation on GPS as well). As a 3G device, HSDPA is already a given, and we are expecting to see EDGE, GPRS and Wi-Fi capabilities as well. Acer has also confirmed that the Liquid with have integrated applications for Twitter, Facebook, Picasa and Flickr. Spinlets is a new Acer application that focuses on sharing media files such as videos and music.
The Future of the Android
The Google Android gets a lot of hype and expectation because they truly deliver some of the best performances of all existing operating systems. Which is why whenever a new Android mobile phone is announced, everyone is all over it, the specs, the planning, the direction and concept of the device. If it is going to run an Android, it better be good. Acer knows this and they are playing the game by the rules. We are definitely going to keep a close eye on Acerâs latest update on the upcoming Acer Liquid A1.
