Brands Rank Higher Without Fulfilling Many Criteria Required Of Other Websites According To Searchmetrics US Google Ranking Factors 2014 Study
To achieve a high ranking position on Google, websites need to include high quality content that provides a great user experience according to new research announced today by Searchmetrics. The company found that high quality content covers a topic more comprehensively and is written in a way that is easier for the average person to read. As expected, these types of pages have better user signals, such as higher click-through rates and more time spent on site. They also have shorter page load times and well-organized internal links. However, well known brand websites still rank in top positions without having to fulfil many of the criteria Google seems to require from other websites.

Just a quarter of search results on the first page of Bing and Google are the same according to a comprehensive analysis of US search results in 2013
New York - On Bing, as on Google, pages from top brand web sites seem to have an automatic advantage which means they rank in the top search results positions. And content quality, social media signals and backlinks are all associated with pages that rank higher in searches. While only about a quarter (24.7%) of web pages (URLs) that appear on the first page of Bing’s search engine results are also included on the first page of Google.
The findings come from the SEO Ranking Factors – Rank Correlation 2013 for Bing USA study by digital marketing software and services company, Searchmetrics, which aims to identify the key factors that help web pages rank well in searches on Bing US and compares them with results from a similar earlier Searchmetrics study of Google US results. The new study is based on an analysis of search results from Bing.com for 10,000 popular keywords and 300,000 websites appearing in the top 30 search results and picks out the issues that correlate with a high ranking on Bing.

But ‘keyword domains’ are less important according to a comprehensive analysis of factors that correlate with ranking highly in Google US searches in 2013
Web pages that rank higher in Google searches tend to have more Google+ plus ones and Facebook shares. While having a relevant keyword in the web site domain name or web address now seems less closely linked with high rankings according to new research. And while pages with higher quality content rank better, top brand web pages apparently continue to automatically rank in top positions without obeying the same rules as other sites.
We all misplace things from time to time. Keys, your phone, your wallet. But according to Simon Bain of search specialists, Simplexo, it is not just in the real world that we are confronted with this, but in the digital world too, and if we are to learn anything from our experiences, search needs to learn and adapt – in other words it's time for Search 2.0.
