A few years ago, some guy got tired of sifting through all the dreck that was already on the Internet and he decided to devise a system to make it easier to find what you were looking for. Something along the lines of the index in a book. Yeah – an index! That’s it! And when he got done he decided to give it a silly little name like Google and now he’s a bajillionaire. You can do that, too. You probably won’t be able to knock Google off the top of the mountain, but you can make money online building your own custom search engine.
If I had to choose my single most favorite way to make money online it would have to be local business directory websites. They’re easy to set up, easy to rank and they automatically attract traffic. Oh, and they make a lot of money, too.
How to make more money with an online business directory
- Provide high quality content on your site. Google tries to find the best answer for our users’ requests; if you write the best material, you’re in the game. Use the Search Analytics report to see which queries lead to your pages, and what the click-through rate is for links to your site.
- Make your site mobile friendly. Many users search on mobile devices; our search results favor pages that we think answer the user’s request best with the best possible user experience on their platform.
- Use informative titles and snippets. Good, clear titles and accurate meta tag descriptions help us understand the purpose of a page and generate useful snippets in our search results. Learn more.
- Add structured data to enable additional search result features such as stars, event information, or site search boxes, which add to the user experience, making your site more valuable to readers.
- Make sure that you follow google guidelines for good sites and avoid pitfalls that could affect your search ratings.
A generic term for a website or an app that you have added to your Search Console account. You can see a list of your properties on your account homepage.
To prove that you own the website or app referred to in your Search Console account. A property must be verified before you can start seeing any data for it. You’ll be asked to verify a site after you add it to your Search Console account.
Google’s web crawler. Google has a few different Googlebots that request your pages as different device types (a smartphone, a feature phone, or a desktop computer) to calculate different search results for users searching on these devices.
If you host the same page at different URLs, your search results can be diluted across these duplicate pages. For example, you might have the same page at http://example.com/dogs and http://www.example.com/dogs; a search might then show separate, lower ranked results for each page than if you had only a single page. In this case, you should indicate to Google that these pages are the same, and choose one to be canonical (the official page) to show in search results. Indicate canonical pages or sites using a Sitemap, HTML tags, or Search Console settings.
The name of a file on your site that tells Google which pages not to index or show in search results.
A list of URLs in your site that Google uses as starting locations to begin crawling a website. A sitemap is contained in one or more files stored on your website.
Google tries to display all pages that it indexes in order to view the page as a user would. Rendering is the process of displaying the page with the images and layout to help Google analyze the meaning of the page.
- Manual action
If your page violates one of Google’s quality guidelines, such as spammy content, it can be subject to a manual action, which will demote it in Google search results.
- International targeting
Explicitly targeting your search results at users by language or country. This can be done using hreflang link tags or the country targeting setting in Search Console.
- Structured data
A public XML standard way of describing information about your pages in a format that the Google crawling engine understands. For instance, you can add ratings, event information, or video information. Some types of structured data are used to create rich snippets.
The small descriptive lines of text that appear under each result in Google search results. These are generated programmatically by Google during indexing, and can have visual characteristics known as rich snippets.
- Rich snippet
A visually enhanced Google search result, such as star ratings or event times. Rich snippets are often generated from structured data added by the page author.
If your website has a logical hierarchy or structure, Google might display a set of sub-links below the main search result. For example, for an airline site, the main result will be the airline home page, and the smaller links below would be direct links to the booking page, the flight status page, the baggage policies page, and so on. You cannot specify sitelinks for your site.
