    Hi Kulwant Bro! Thanks for sharing a very useful InfoGraphics once again. I want to know your ideas on “high bounce rate and its impact on SEO”. Should we think high bounce rate means low quality content? What should be a maximum level of bounce rate?

    Hi Kulwant,

    This is an awesome infographic that says it all :)

    I’m glad I stopped by to open this post and read these google ranking factors, which I think are so important, especially after the recent updates. I guess I am trying to do most of the things, but there’s always something or the other that seems to be left out as there’s a lot one has to cover. Nevertheless, I think this surely needs to shared and pinned all over.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day ahead :)

    It took me more than 20 minutes to read this infographic, I’ve got to confes I didn’t knew all these tips.

    I found some mistakes, I mean I found that in this infographic are 2 mistakes, description from SSL Certificate is the same as Duplicate Content On Site, and same mistake at Co Citations and Numbers Of RSS Subscribers.

    Best regards from I. C. Daniel

      I appreciate your study and great concentration while reading this infographic.

      You were able to find the mistakes means you read each and every sentence. Such minor mistakes are very common but you must be very happy that you read it completely.

      I am extremely happy after reading your comment.

    Great info graphic, although if you focus on the main points that rank websites, you really don’t need to worry to much about all the others. depends on your biz model I guess and what type of website you are building. I have sites in the top that do all but 3 of the points on this huge image. I don’t think anyone can ever get everything right anyhow, to many variables to say for sure if many of these points on the image even go towards ranking a website.

    • http://www.bloggingcage.com/ Kulwant Nagi

      Very true points John. Thanks for visiting us.

    Absolutely amazing infographic! I had no idea there was so many factors google used to determine a site’s authority. I never knew they considered so many obscure things like the length of url’s.

    Hearing about the blog commenting factor worries me a bit as I do a lot of blog commenting to initiate relationships with other bloggers. Oh well, I trust Google to figure out that I’m not doing it excessively or in a spam promoting way.

  • http://www.tech2blog.com/ Pawan

    Very nice but hard to remember all factor. All in one ranking factor sheet. Nice share Kulwant.

  • http://www.versedtech.org/ Sudip

    Great info. But this is little bit difficult to remember all those factors. Anyway thanks for it.

  • Nathan Brook
