Recently, Google set a new standard or requirements that contents must meet in order to qualify passing through their search engine to get to online searchers.

Google now has the latest updated search engine algorithm with code name Panda. This algorithm is the cause of drop in ranking for a good number of websites. Google intends to decrease the rankings of substandard contents in their search result page.

Google has been magnanimous enough to make things easier for webmasters by putting up certain questions that would assist webmasters in determining the quality of their site contents, and thus ascertain whether or not such site’s content is sufficiently good for Google’s new quality filters.

Here are the questions that would help you determine whether your website contents qualify for Google’s new quality filters.

  1. How reliable is the content on your webpage?
    • Can you vouch that the info outlined in your content is correct?
    • Who is the author of the article – a pro who is well knowledgeable about the subject, or is the article written by someone who is just copying contents onto the web?
    • Can you comfortably give your credit card info to the website?
    • For articles related to health, can you rely on the info presented on the site?
    • Is the website well known and respected for the keyword or subject of discussion?
    • Can you comfortably bookmark such website, recommend or share it with someone?
    • Are users going to be happy when they come across any page from the site?
  2. Do you carry out a check on the quality of your webpages?
    • Do you check errors such as factual, spelling, grammatical or stylistic errors?
    • Was sufficient editing done on the article or was it hastily written and no extra check was carried out on it?
    • What extent of quality control measure was administered regarding the article?
    • Is the article quite insightful and informative beyond criticism?
    • Is the article worth publishing in a book, encyclopedia or printed magazine?
    • What about the thoroughness aspect, was proper attention to details given to the article?
  3. Are your WebPages created for your visitors or search engines?
    • Are the subjects intended to benefit the site visitors, or are they merely created with the hope that they may be the kind of topics that compete well in search engine ranking?

Other questions include:

  • How sufficient are the real articles on your website, are they even real at all?
  • Do you overpopulate the article with too many ads, to the extent that the ads intercept the actual content?
