Impact of content quality on web page indexing

Google recently released a mechanism for assessing webpage quality to determine ranking in Search Engine Page Results (SERP). The crawlers give high-quality content a competitive edge. The structure of HTML and content according to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) are fundamental for effective indexing.

According to Search Engine Journal, Google’s search team engineer, Gary Illyes, quality is a crucial factor in the Indexing stage. It involves analyzing a web page’s textual content, attributes, tags, videos, and images.

During this stage, Google also evaluates various signals to determine the quality of the page and its ranking in search results. This means that pages will not be indexed if they don’t meet a certain quality threshold despite doing everything right from a technical standpoint

Further, Google has confirmed in the past that high-quality content is crawled more frequently, which is vital for staying competitive in search results. You can learn Google’s guidelines for quality content in this earlier blog.

To conserve crawling resources, Google aims to prioritize crawling pages that meet its quality standards.

Signals & Duplicate Content Handling

Some signals, like the rel= “canonical” annotation, are easy to understand, while others, such as a page’s importance on the internet, can be complex.

Google groups similar pages using “duplicate clustering” and selects one canonical version based on quality signals to represent the content in search results.

Google may not penalize your website if there are sections of duplicate content across multiple pages. Instead, it will recognize that the content is on several pages and attempt to filter it out of search results while displaying only one page.

Besides quality assessment, Google Indexing of pages may involve the following details:

HTML Parsing and Semantic Concerns: Google fragments the HTML structure into components of a webpage and repairs any semantic issues occured. If the irrelevant tags are used within the < head> element, it can lead to indexing problems.

Primary Content Identification: Google analyzes the primary content or centerpiece of a page. It means that optimizing the main content of a webpage is more crucial than incremental technical changes.

Index Storage: Google’s search database is usually spread across thousands of computers. This gives the context regarding the scale of Google’s infrastructure.
