Google says Links and Title tags matter to Rankings

Title tags matter for ranking

If you have been in touch with SEO in recent times, you would have known one thing by now. It is that the most important factor for ranking your website is the title of your article. Same as the title of this article, every title matters.

If you are putting a very generic article for your website but the title is good, the website will rank for a period. However, it then depends on the content quality as well.

But there is no stopping your website’s success if you have quality content as well as quality titles. Now, there are also instances, and lots of them, where people blame Google for promoting click-baity titles.

For examples, if someone has a title like “This thing will help you rank your website quickly”. And the article says that Links and Title tags will help rank your article then it is click-bait, sort of.

Because it is the most obvious fact regarding rankings that everyone is aware of. However, Google’s Gary Illyes has reiterated that titles are very important for SEO. He was asked that “meta title tags won’t impact ranking positions?”.

On this, @methode from Google replied saying:

“If you mean HTML titles, they can help a lot. We’ve been saying since 2006 or so to write proper titles, but no one’s listening “

The last line which says “no one’s listening” also refers to the problem of click-baity titles or abrupt titles which do not help in ranking the website.

From this, we have the confirmation once again that titles and tags do help a website to rank better in search results. But we must say that it is one of the most basic SEO questions and you should know it if you are a site owner or an SEO professional. If not, this answer was likely for you.

Google Search Results sharing

One thing that everyone does when they want information about something is to Google it. This basically means that you type your required information inside search box on Google and the search engine will give you results. However, there are people all around the world that don’t bother to search on Google and rather ask everyone on social media about it. For them, we have to often reply with an advise to “just google it”.

However, it is also known that some people who are elderly do not understand the technology that well. So they often rely on the younger generation to do the task of searching on Google. But for those who know how to Google and just don’t, we have to give them some passive aggressive replies. One of them is to send a link to LMGTFY which is Let Me Google That For You.

Basically, it is a link which sends a particular search query to people and if they click on the link, they will be redirected to Google and see the search results. Now, that task will be possible from the Google Search app itself. Because Google app as well as website now gets a new share button. This means that you can share your Google Search Results.

All in all, you can now just google something for someone and then share the search result with them so they can see the results instead of bothering to search themselves. Also, this functionality is available for every app so you can send the results by sharing on any application as well as copy it to clipboard as well.

Domain Market

Mike Mann who is known to be a big domain investor as well as a sharp mind in the industry has reported sales of some premium domains for a lot of money. Mike Mann’s report reveals that he sold a total of 9 domains last month. The total amount that was paid by different buyers for these 9 domains was $179,828. It is reported that the average domain sales price was $19,981.

Before getting to know which were these domain names and what they were sold for, we should have a look at who MikeMann is. Basically, MikeMann is the owner of a website called DomainMarket.com which is famous for offering premium domains to the tune of more than 350,000. Now, it does not mean that MikeMann reports every domain sale that DomainMarket makes. Instead, Mike reports what he wants to report and hides others.

Also, it is known that he purchases and sells hundreds of domains every month through market research and other factors. Yet, he only discloses details about the ones that get the highest price for obvious reasons. One more thing to consider here is that Mike Mann needs to sell more than $2.5 million worth of domains so that he can break even in terms of returns on investment.

Talking about the 9 domains that he has reported for May 2019, the highest sale out of those domains has been for Dermacor.com which has collected $29,888 on its own which was purchased for just $7 from Purch in 2009. Other domains include aitko.com, rebelrealestate.com, avoro.com, sundayservice.com, jazzyou.com, havuzlu.com, fancyfarmer.com and pandacloud.com.

Now, one thing that you would have noticed here is that all the domains are having .com TLD which shows that this TLD has the most value which is even more than .net domains. It should also be noted that DomainMarket.com is reporting its monthly reports since 2016.
