Just a few ground rules before we get #SEOChat off the ground.

1. I’ll ask questions with Q1, Q2, so make sure to respond w/ the corresponding A1, A2, etc.

2. Don’t forget the #SEOChat hashtag, or we won’t be able to see your responses/comments.

3. As always, be nice or else.

Q1 What is the difference between Query-dependent and Query-independent Ranking Criteria?

A1 Query-dependent and Query-independent ranking criteria are fundamentals for re-ranking algorithms. A document can be relevant for a query, but query-independent factors can make it eliminated. Information Retrieval Score can be a factor for Query-dependent ranking, and PageRank can be a Query-independent factor.

Q2 If the query is “Protein Powder”, which one would have more weight, Query-dependent, or Query-Independent Ranking Factors?

A1 Answer is related to “Relative Ranking”. In an Inverted Index, the most quality document and less quality document will have different types of scores. The thresholds are determined “relatively” based on threshold sources. For “Protein Powder”, the Query-independent Factors will have more weight. The search intents are ordered as:

Buy Protein Powder
Find Protein Powder Reviews
Find Protein Powder Brand Reviews
Compare Protein Powders
How to use Protein Powders
What are Protein Powders

Q3 What is Query Processing? What is Processed Query? Does a Search Engine re-rewrite queries? Does it generate questions from queries?

A3 Query Processing is the parsing of the query for calculating the term weights for possible search intents and activities. Processed Query is the query’s rewritten, and optimized versions. The processed query can be a question. The Search Intents for “Protein Powder” are its processed version.

Q4 For the Query “X Stadium”, which SERP Features would you think to appear more? Local Map Pack, Images, PAA, Team Score Results, News, etc.? Can you give me an order?

A4 SERP Features are relevant to the Search Intent Distribution. For “X Stadium” Query Template with popularity order:

– Entity Relation Refinement
– Knowledge Panel
– GBP Panel
– Image Pack
– PAA
– Video Pack
– Web Results

Q4 How would you rank “Major and Minor search intents” for the Query of “Home Renovation”?

A4 “Home Renovation” is a “service-seeking query”. For the “Noun Renovation” Query Template:

Major Search Intents: Find an X Renovation Service Near Me, Review X Renovation Services, How I do Renovate X and Cost…
Minor Search Intents: X Renovation Definition, Difference, Comparison…

Q5 What is the Semantic Distance between two Queries?

A5 Semantic Distinctiveness and Similarity are different. Armour can be semantically relevant but different from the sword. The distance between two queries represents how the documents need to be shaped. Semantic Distance between queries is determined by edges and nodes between concepts in a graph network.

Q6 What is the difference between Query and Lexical Semantics?

A6 Query Semantics rely on Query Co-occurrence and Correlation along with “interchangeability” The Lexical Semantics rely on dictionary meanings. A query word can have a different meaning than a dictionary definition. Two words can be irrelevant, but they can appear in queries together with no concrete reason.

Q7 Can an SEO change what a search engine thinks about a concept? Can we register non-existing things into their knowledge base? Can we change a brand’s relevance to a concept with a positive sentiment?

A7 Yes*3. A search engine learns always-on. It can change opinion, or recognize something new. Without search demand, documents are collected and classified. A brand can make a Knowledge Domain more expanded, and it can affect all other brands’ Topical Authority/Categorical Quality.

Q8 “Predictive Document Ranking”: How to determine PageRank need per web page? How many declarations are necessary to create enough Information gaps? How many pages should change for a Re-ranking Event?

A8: “Predictive Information Retrieval” relies on introductory sections of documents for initial relevance calculations. Predictive Document Ranking relies on Query-dependent and independent factors with pre-determined thresholds. For a New SEO Project:

The PageRank, Relevance, and Comprehensiveness thresholds should be determined. This section is relevant to “Relative Ranking”.

Q9 Can changing word order impact the Information Retrieval Score? Should results change from “Vision Board” to “Board Vision”.

A9 This section is about “Probabilistic Ranking”. Yes, Word Order impacts IR Score. No, it shouldn’t change, but it changes. Phrase-based Indexing works with Phrase Lists, Co-occurrences, and Proximity. Initial, central, and context words will have more weight. Word order changes these.

Q10 Which one is more important? Indigenous or Exogenous Ranking Factors?

A10 It depends. The direction of the Google search engine is from Exogenous Ranking Factors to Indigenous R. Factors. Why? Because, it is more controllable, and manipulation possibility is harder. Quality can be seen from content better, rather than external link flow.

Q 11 Which order is better for external anchor texts?

A- Branded, Generic, Branded + Generic
B- Branded, Branded + Generic, Generic
C- Generic, Branded, Branded + Generic

A11 Brand Name → X, Branded + Generic Anchor Text → X Brand Y Product

If there is a high level of content production, choose B.
If there is not enough content, Choose C and consolidate PageRank for higher historical data earlier.

Q12 Should we restrict the internal link count within the main content?

A12 Yes, every internal link will divide the PageRank while diluting the main purpose of the content. According to the internal link count, the content’s length, or purpose can change from an article to hub-type content.

Q13 Does internal link position matter?

A13 For Crawling, No.
        For PageRank Flow, Yes.
        For Relevance, Yes.

Q14 What is the similarity threshold? Why is it important for SEO?

A14 Similarity threshold is to determine whether two documents are similar enough or not. If two documents are too similar to each other, one of them will be canonical. Search engines can cluster documents and choose one of them cross-domain canonical, as representative content. Being shadowed by another source can be seen during broad core algorithm updates.

Q15 Do you think that Search Engine Optimization is harder than programming or not?

A15 This is an opinion-based question. For me, SEO is harder than coding and programming. Because SEO also involves programming. And, there is no school for SEO. Search engines do not give, what they do, what you should do. Results come 6 months after. In programming, everything works in 5 seconds with clear documentation. SEO is harder than web development.

Q16 What would you change in Google’s algorithm. And, what would you like to tell @John Mueller for that? How do you feel about small websites? Or, news publishers? Are you happy with non-given voice search data? Or, should Google try to keep users on SERP? Should we be paid for this by Google?

A16 Thank you to John Mueller, for every question that he answers for all these years. From my point of view, I would like to see voice search data. I know Google sends more traffic to the websites every year, but the percentage gets smaller, too.

#SEOChat with RankLab and Predictive Ranking is ended. Thanks for joining, and sharing your information with us.
