View Full Version : How does a search engine treat a newly edited/changed page
01-13-2005, 02:49 AM
Here's another CTQ which I hope you will understand . . .
After I edit a page of my site, does a search engine look at it differently and therefore will receive a different ranking on a search page result?
If this is so, is it better then not to edit/change a page all the time?
Please educate me more . . .
Thank you for your patience. :roll:

China Tea, for a serch engine to even know that your page has been modified it has to visit it. If it has come that far, you're doing good.
I don't believe simply modifying a page will affect the ranking all by itself. But if your page becomes more relevant through new and better content it may rise, as well as drop if it becomes less relevant. It's not easy to predict in any case.

Thanks Christina . . .
I noticed that sometimes my page is listed either up or down or not there at all, when the same keyword is entered at different time intervals. Since I am always editing/correcting my pages, I thought the fluctuating ranks on a result page are caused by such changes.
Hmmm . . .

I thought Google likes updated pages because it shows the site is active.
I try to make some change to mine often.

I am constantly editing mine, mostly to correct and improve (or so I thought). . .
