Google’s organic ranking algorithm is a complex combination of on- and off-page factors ranging from traditional elements like title/meta relevance to quality of incoming links. As the search engine improves its ability to return answers to users’ questions, a site’s ability to deliver insightful, substantial content has become a factor under inspection. With a seemingly endless number of fresh pages to be analyzed each day, the search engine must use calculations (and not human editors) to judge the editorial qualities of this content. If we assume a scoring system is being used to assess content readability, we can answer questions like:
- How many words of content is “enough” to rank well in Google?
- What is the average readability score of sites with top organic rankings?
PM Digital’s latest whitepaper, How Google Answers Questions – Content Readability & Organic Rankings, seeks to answer these questions.
