How to get better Google search results

Why does my site not show up for a specific keyword or phrase?

Google do not manually assign keywords to sites, nor can webmasters submit a list of preferred keywords for which their sites will appear.

The best way to ensure that your site returns your preferred keywords is to include them on your pages. Googles crawler analyses the content of webpages in their index to determine the search queries for which they are most relevant. If you create an information-rich site that clearly and accurately describes your topic, it will likely return your desired keywords.

Keep in mind that your site may be returning for your preferred keywords but may not appear in the first few pages of results. To determine if this is the case, search for your site using our site operator along with a keyword, such as: [ doodle ]. This search returns the following results: http://­www.­google.­com/­search?hl=­en&­q=­site%­3AGoogle.­com+­doodle

In general Brick Instant Website owners can improve the rank of their sites by increasing the number of high-quality sites that link to their pages.
