Source Code

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but I'm currently trying to up my articles in google.

    So, what I'm doing is looking at the source code of those that are no 1 and seeing how they got there.

    I'm wondering if 'contents' plays a part, and if so, is that equivalent to the 'summary' tag that we have.

    Does anyone know what part the summary tag plays in terms of google ranking?

    Thank you

      Just looking at that some more, it's actually the description tag that seems to have an importance that I haven't previously realized.

      As anyone got some experience with this?

        "The Meta Title tag is the most important from what we observe and that is driven by the title of the Hub." -- HP Staff

        And the summary you have mentioned is important as it forms the meta description.

        Meta description tag is no more important for popular search engines, they no more read meta description tags.

        The title has an effect on your search engine ranking, the description has an effect on your click through rate.

          the targeted keywords in the description under the url in search engines attracts the reader much. It has a psychological advantage.

    I think the summary in hubpages provide the meta description for the page - which is the description that usually comes up on google under the title.

    It always helps to have your main keywords in the summary / description, but I don't think it is a major factor.

    Hope that helps answer your question

      I was looking at the key words in those people whose articles were about much the same thing as mine, and all things being equal,  their key words were no different to mine. The only thing that was different was the description. Hence my question.

      What causes one article to get higher ranking than another article if keywords are the same, articles contain similar information and have similar length

      Also, with regard to the title, what does google see as a good title?

        Also, another question. Just searched for one particular article.

        In Alta Vista I'm not 3. In google I'm on the third page. In Yahoo, I can't find it.

        As I work through my hubs, I'll be asking these questions.

        Is there another forum to ask this, or is this the right forum?

        Many thanks. smile

          This is the wrong forum. You need to ask here:


          http://hubpages.com/forum/2

          But - be careful asking too many questions - as you have just done. These questions do not have simple answers, and there is plenty of information on the site to help you with these things. wink

          Look for:

          Backlinks
          SEO
          Keyword research

        In a same site when the keyword, quality and length and on page seo are equal for multiple contents; age and backlink works as other important factors for page rank.

        The title question has no particular answer as far as I am concerned. It depends on competitive keyword research. I can say one thing, title should reflect the content.
