Search Engine Optimization for Search Engines

According to the central webmaster blog, Google has over 200 factors to rank a website. Google is now mostly focusing on content quality, readability, and useful content as a big priority for ranking factors.

So, it is essential to comb auto-generated, old and outdated contents from a website for a good ranking on the search result. Before going to the practical fixing phase lets, move on to the analyzing process of autogenerated contents:

What’s make a content autogenerated?

It is a big question that what’s make a content auto-generated. If you are going through the Google webmaster quality guidelines, you may notice the definition of auto-generated content. Let’s move on to the details of auto-generated content. See the full list of quality guideline from here:

Text translated by automatic tools and process

Every Author gives priority to their native language. We learn to talk and think with our mother tongue. Nothing can help to express and understand a topic efficiently as like as mother tongue. Some good blogger is not proficient in English or any other widespread language so that they use automated translation software to convert their contents into other languages.

Google can detect automated translated content from the sources that are no longer curated or reviewed. However, there is much difference between language to language. The automated system is unable to detect the tone, accent, and meanings. Sometimes many grammatical errors are seen in the automated translated copy.

So, it is a smart decision to curate the content by an expert human reviewer and then finally published it.

Content generated through an automated process: It was an SEO practice from 2008 to show up the relevancy of content by using many keywords. By this system, you can be fixed up the keyword usage for your content to get a better ranking.

Here you find a better explanation of how Markov’s chain works:

This type of content describes the same topics again and again and make a false keyword density and anchor text. For example:

If you know that A is B then B is A. So, it is straightforward to prove the A as like as B because of A consists of the same value of B. However if you know……..repeat (Contents are going on)

This type of content includes two types of text. One is for the user agent. Another one is tricking the search engine by generating too many keywords at the bottom of the contents and along with other vital points.

These keywords are pronouncing rhythmically and make no sense to the users at all.

Text generated by using Synonymizing

It is clear that when you create any content using automatic software that replaces the synonyms of the main article and makes it unique by these tricks.

There is a lot of spinning software’s are available on the market that can spin an article randomly with wrong and over-compromising value.

Some of these articles replace the text and use synonyms that are hard to realize the main idea and ultimately lost its readability and flow. Google is now able to detect this type of content.

So, what’s about borrowing an idea:

In the creative world, borrowing or get inspiration from same-minded people or similar things is not rare. Creative people looks at creativity to get inspiration, to make something new.

From this perspective, borrowing an idea is not bad if you know the topics clearly and describes better by using your own words.

So, it is not wrong to research and analyze some articles and come up with your own idea to make a new one. However, DON’T SPIN word by word, sentence by sentence and so on.

Text generated from a Search result or RSS/Atom feed:  Some content generation tools are fetching search results, or RSS feeds from various sources for a targeted keyword to make new content. However, this type of content brings no value to the users as well as considered highly plagiarized content. Unlike other quality, Google prohibits the plagiarized contents if they find similarity with one or more websites.

However, you can use some plagiarism checker tools for determining your content uniqueness and quality. Sometimes written words are also very similar to some websites because they use these phrases and contents before. So, it is a good investment to find out the plagiarized or near similar contents from your website.

Take your creativity on the fly: An old topics could be described by a new way or explanation if you know what you say. If you add some humor sense to hard and rough topics, it can turn into a bright piece of writing.

It does not matter, which words you use to explain topics if your audiences understand the main motto. So, take advantage of your creativity to fly.

Cut the piece of contents and neatly stitching them: The proverb says, “Cut your coat according to your cloth”. I am just going to make it a slightly different, “Make your contents according to your thought”.

If you do not have enough knowledge to make content, then try to learn more from various resources until it becomes sufficient. However, don’t make content by borrowing some thoughts from here and there.

Because at the end of the day this type of content remains useless. No matter, how much struggle you put to make a figure, but it is nothing but a stitched version of coat that is creating from the cutting from the different colored of coat.

Do you like to wear this type of coat? Obviously, “No”. I do not even think to wear it in my home…uggh. 🙂

So, why do you want to prepare this type of content for your blog? Don’t sit down and write until you come up with a better idea or understand a topic very clearly.

You may ask, “how Google detects that I use an uncomplete idea in my content?”

Well, if Google can identify the duplicate, synonymize, auto-translated or scraping contents, it can definitely find out and detect the auto-tailored contents too.

However, Google considered the content for ranking if you added sufficient value and cited the primary sources.

Old and outdated contents: Google does not give priority to the content that uses old and outdated data, no matter how finely written it. It is necessary to consistently check the content and data to ensure it is most up to date and brings value to the users.
