Q&A With Google’s Matt Cutts On How Google Choose Title While Searching?


How Google Choose Title While Searching

Excellent explanation by Google’s Head of Search Spam Matt Cutts on the question –  How Does Google Choose Titles for Search Results?

To hear Matt’s full explanation, please see the video below

Here, Pierre Far, explains why Google may pick a different title tag

In a Google+ post he gives the short version:

▬ Our algorithms generate thee alternative titles so that your page is no longer constrained with having just the one title for all the different queries your page ranks for. This has the nice side effect of making the result look more relevant to our searchers and..

▬ On average, the alternative titles increase the click through rate on the results, i.e. more traffic for you.

▬ The <title> tag is still a primary source for titles we show so all our advice about make them concise and useful and enticing still very much apply. Keep an eye on the HTML Suggestions page in the Diagnostics section in Webmaster Tools for title suggestions.

Bottom Line

The shorter a title, the better is its chance to be displayed in the SERPs. Good to know for the SERP CTR fetishists among us.

Video: Matt Cutts On SEO Drawbacks Using Responsive Design Vs Separate Mobile URLs


Matt Cutts Talks Responsive Design Impact On SEO

Is there an SEO disadvantage to using responsive design instead of separate mobile URLs?

Google’s head of search spam Matt Cutts from discussing it further in a new Webmaster Help Video in response to the user-submitted question:

Does a site leveraging responsive design “lose” any SEO benefit compared to a more traditional m. site?
John E, New York

Here is the video for you all to watch:

Video Transcription

Whenever you have a site that can work well for regular browsers on the desktop as well as mobile phones, there’s a couple completely valid ways to do it. One is called responsive design, and responsive design just means that the page works totally fine whether you access that URL with a desktop browser or whether you access that URL with a mobile browser. Things will rescale, you know, the page size will be taken into account, and everything works fine. Another way to do it is, depending on the user agent that’s coming, you could do a redirect so that a mobile phone – a mobile smartphone, for example – might get redirected to a mobile dot version of your page, and that’s totally fine as well.”

Read our guidelines for mobile-optimized sites: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/

This includes things like having a rel=”canonical” from the mobile version to the desktop version, and stuff like that. In general, I wouldn’t worry about a site that uses responsive design losing SEO benefit(s) because by definition, you’ve got the same URL, so in theory, if you do a mobile version of your site, if you don’t handle that well and you don’t do the rel=’canonical’ and all those sorts of things, you might, in theory, divide the PageRank between those two pages, but if you’ve got responsive design, everything is handled from one URL, and so the PageRank doesn’t get divided. Everything works fine, so you don’t need to worry about the SEO drawbacks at all.

Checked with reference to the documents mentioned below…

Bottom Line

I am thankful that he confirmed my some doubts on this. Having a good responsive design won’t harm your search engine results. But, however, if you use a separate mobile version in the form of m.domain.com, unless you manage every thing accurately, you could possibly harm your ranking.

Video: Matt Cutts On Should I use ccTLDs for sites not targeted to those countries?


Should I use ccTLDs for sites not targeted to those countries?Google’s Matt Cutts head of search spam has put out a new webmaster help video comes from Andy, NY on Jul 29, 2013 . Cutts discusses it is a good idea for website to use ccTLD (country code top level domain) as a novelty domain.

And the Question Is mentioned below..?

As memorable .COM domains become more expensive, more developers are choosing alternate new domains like .IO and .IM – which Google geotargets to small areas. Do you discourage this activity?

Here is the video for you all to watch:

Video Transcription

Google’s Matt Cutts says. “Because you can pick any domain you choose, but in case you choose a domain like .ES or .IT because you think that you could make a unique domain like GOOGLE.IT (‘Google It’), you know, or something like that, be aware that most domains at a country level do pertain to that specific country, and so we think that that content is going to be intended mainly for that country.”

Here’s a list of the domains Google considers generic.
