Google is responsible for billions of internet searches each day, as well as over 85 percent of the search engine market share, so the ultimate goal of a marketer is to find their brand high in the ranking. Without knowing the factors that Google considers in the ranking, however, it can be difficult to achieve this goal.
Google never publicly listed these factors, but it has confirmed that there are around 200 ranking aspects that impact organic search rankings. These include on-page, off-page and site-level aspects, as well as virtually endless technical SEO factors that determine your site’s ranking.
That’s a lot to consider, but fortunately, these factors aren’t weighed equally. Some factors are more important than others, and there are some SEO best practices on which you should focus before correcting the low-impact aspects of your site.
