Well – here we are again, we have a new test to look at. This time we are looking at the effects of strict HTML on the way Google measures a page.
The essential question of does Google look at more than the H1 tag when analyzing a page?
We also know the importance of good headings in regards to SEO. SEO is dependent on the heading tags.
So we setup 2 keywords and 3 pages each.
The first page is a keyword in the H1, but no content. Page two is keyword in the H1, but non-related words as content. The finally – we have keyword in H1, and keyword once in the content.
Then we replicated the entire thing again with an additional keyword…
OK – check back and let us know what your guess on the results in the comments.
Keyword 1 samples:
Keyword 2 samples:
My guess is the sample 1 is crap and will get shunned, sample 2 will will and sample 2 will still get indexed – but behind 3. I think Google is looking – but not that much.
Basically I think, “does Google look at more than the H1 tag” – no. They talk a big game, but in the end still reply on very few ranking signals…we will soon see.
So – does Google look at more than the H1 tag?
Answers to come…
We may have to devise another test – my fear is we have more keywords on the page so it may increase frequency.
