Do you use the many Google search operators to slice and dice your search results to best effect for your SEO link building work? This is a great way to hone your searching and bring to the forefront some interesting and valid potential link partners.
Here is a basic helpsheet on Google search operators that will get you started. There are lots of other reference sheets on the web that will go into more detail on all of them.
Here is one tip to be going on with…
We all know that the title tag of any given page is a crucial on-page SEO factor. So a page that can be found for the term you are working on that doesn’t have that term in its title could be an undiscovered authoritative page. The theory is that there is a good possibility that the page might just be a good page on the subject that hasn’t been SEOed to extremes. Worth checking out eh?
By using Google search operators this is easy, just type this in your Google search box:
your term -intitle:your term
Want to get rid of some more of the results that have related words in the page’s title? Try this:
your term -intitle:your term *
Google is not great at listing these types of results in a direct order of popularity so you will have to sift through some dodgy sites/pages (but hey, this is the Internet!). However, you will discover a few gems that may have gone below your radar otherwise.
This is just one of the many ways you can use Google’s search operators to help you in your SEO link building. There are lot more. Which ones do you use?
