How Search Engines Rank Web Pages

Search engines have developed a lot of sophisticated techniques for weighting and valuing pages on the Web. But they all come down to basically two categories:

  • What does your Web page say?
    The actual text content of your Web page and HTML code. What content does your site convey to the user?
  • Who is linking to you?
    What sort of other Web pages are linking to yours? Do they have the same topic or a related topic?




When you look at a Web page, you see the page displayed on your computer screen. You can read the text, look at the images, and figure out what that page is about.

Search engines don’t see Web pages the same way a person does. In fact, search engines cannot actually see at all, at least not visually. Instead, they read the HTML code of the Web page, and the actual text that it contains.

All the search engines can read is text. They also can look at the HTML code (which is also text) of the site to try and get some clues about what that text means or which text is most important.

Search engines can sometimes use the HTML code to get some clues about other elements on the page, such as images and animation. For example, search engines can look at an image tag and read the alt text attribute, if the page author supplied it, to get an idea of what the image is.

img src="cowpicture.jpg" alt="Picture of a cow" 
However, this is not a replacement for actual text content.


Web links from other sites are also important clues that search engines use to figure out what your page is about, or how important your page is for a particular search query. In a search engine’s view, a link from one page to another is basically a “vote” for that page.

If you have a page about cows, and a local farmer’s Web page links to your page from their website for more information on the topic of cows, that is an extra vote for your page.

More links = more votes.

Not all votes are equal votes, however. Most important is how relevant the link is. For example, a link from a page about  dairy products or cows doesn’t have much to do with cheap domain registration or cheap domain hosting, so a link from that page to your website about cows does not count for very much at all, if anything.

Some Web page owners put a lot of time and effort into chasing down links from other Web page authors, swapping links or trying to get listed on directories or have articles posted to sites like Digg or Reddit. This can be helpful for your site, but you have to remember to focus on your own page content first. If your Web page doesn’t have much value to other site authors, they are unlikely to link to it.

Setting up Email on Your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® Touch

We know you’re excited to get your email set up on your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® Touch. We should have your email working on your device in about 5 minutes.

If you follow the steps below, and you can’t receive or send email, please see iPhone: Troubleshooting Email for help.

BEFORE YOU START: To set up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, go to theInfoCenter and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.

NOTE: Disable WiFi before you begin this process.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. On the Settings screen, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Tap Add Account.
  4. Tap Other.
  5. Tap Add Mail Account.
  6. Enter your Name, email AddressPassword, and a short Description for your email. Tap Next.
  7. If you have IMAP, tap IMAP. If you’re not sure, tap POP.

    NOTE: Even though iOS labels these fields as Optional, our email serversrequire them to send email.

  10. If you have IMAP, tap Next, and then tap Save. Otherwise, just tap Save.

That’s it. On your device, go to Mail (it’s usually in the row at the bottom of your screen). If everything is working OK, you should see some email messages. To make sure you can send messages, go ahead and compose an email and send it to yourself.

If you’re not receiving email messages or you can’t send messages, see iPhone: Troubleshooting Email. Don’t worry. There are a few things that can happen during the setup process. We’ll help you investigate and fix them.
