Just the simple act of typing into the search field of your favorite search engine is a great and important way to discover what you’re looking for. It’s a great way to narrow your search to things you might not have thought about searching for.
The web crawler is actually good at discovering web sites, but its also a good tool to find links to your favorite websites—even if you don’t even know the sites you’re looking at. The fact that you can find sites you haven’t thought about before is a great way to learn things about your online life and what you think you might be looking for.
It is also an excellent way to search for information. Google was one of the only sites I could find that had a list of all the websites I’d ever been to, even though I’d only been on the net for a few months. I never had heard of the other websites I was looking at, so even though I was looking for information about the internet, I wasn’t really even sure I wanted to visit them.
Google’s search results for the term “what is a website query” were a little disappointing to say the least. There were a lot of pages that were the exact same thing, and a lot of pages that were exactly the same as each other. A lot of sites actually used the same title as their homepage. Even pages that were completely different seemed to have the exact same page title. I had my hopes up that Yahoo would be better with this data, but alas that is not the case.
The problem is that Yahoo is not only collecting the same content on different pages, but they are also combining the content on each page together. For every result that’s the exact same, there are a hundred variations. For example, the homepage for my website, “What is a website query”, has the exact same title and text, but there are two different pages on the page.
This is why Yahoo is not good at this stuff in the first place. They can’t get exact results, so they get a bunch of “mixed up” results that are of little use to the end user. This is, in the end, a problem with any site that has content that is all the same.
I suppose it’s a bit of unfair to ask the end user to sift through all the variation on the page. Maybe if you had a page that was just a blank page with random text, and someone typed in exactly the same title, the end user would be better off. But in the case of a website that’s full of content that’s all the same, it’s a good idea to make things as easy as possible.
You might want to think about what is the content in each of your pages. What is it that you are selling. Is it your content? Are you trying to sell software? Do you want to sell widgets? Are you trying to sell recipes? Or do you have other purposes for your content? Once you know that, when you are making a query for content, you can add in the keywords and make sure the result isn’t a generic page.
Good luck on your search. Keep in mind that websites which are really good at what they do tend to have a lot of content. The same goes for blog and forum sites. If you want to get better at content, try to find a niche you can write about. It can be anything from food to history to movies, cars, music, to books, or anything that is more than just a generic website.
A little more than a year ago, Google began to show a new type of results called “Searches that mention your keywords.” In this section, the search engines are trying to find websites that might be related to your keywords. These results are usually very quick, so I haven’t used them much myself. However, you might be able to use them to find some pretty interesting content that’s not on the first page of your search.
