A post by Aaron Wall of SEOBook is talking about the excessive weight that Google is placing on branded search results.
The post says that all those pages that exhibited the following characteristics were removed or abolished from the search results:
According to Aaron's post, it is clearly depicted that in Search Results Rankings Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Branded search resultsĂ˘â‚¬Âť are of high relevance than other thing. Of course, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Content is the king,Ă˘â‚¬Âť but branded sites too are equally important!
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“If you ask Matt Cutts what big SEO changes are coming up he will tell you "make great content" and so on…never wanting to reveal the weaknesses of their search algorithms.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
According to Google's Eric Schmidt
"Brands are the solution, not the problem," Mr. Schmidt said. "Brands are how you sort out the cesspool."
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Branding, on the other hand, may be an essential element that helps people navigate the world, he continued. Brand affinity is clearly hard wired," he said. "It is so fundamental to human existence that it's not going away. It must have a genetic component."
