Here's How Google Approaches SEO For Its Hundreds Of Websites And Products

Search engine optimization (SEO) is something that pretty much everyone has to take part in if they want to be able to maximize the value that they could potentially end up receiving from the content that they are posting online. Google’s search engine is something that pretty much everyone keeps in mind when they are trying to make sure that the content they are posting is making it to the very top of the search engine results. That being said, Google has several properties of its own that it would like people to see, and so the tech giant engages in search engine optimization as well.

This SEO is conducted for the roughly 7,000 websites that Google owns, and one thing that should be noted is that Google follows webmaster guidelines just like any other online presence that is attempting to boost its visibility through the search engine optimization.
"Over 200 changes are made to these websites every single day, all of which could potentially affect a site’s SEO.", explained Sean O'Keefe a data scientist at Google in a blog post. Adding further, "When it comes to how Google sites appear in Search, they receive the same treatment as any other site on the web, and our teams follow the same external guidelines provided to webmasters."
Google’s various web properties undergo hundreds of changes every single day, so each time a change is made its impact on the search engine optimization of the page in question needs to be factored in. Hence, in a lot of ways Google’s SEO approach works kind of like a vast, intricate machine, one in which all of the parts move as one so as to cause minimal disruption.

Google also tries to stay on top of things by monitoring changes in user behavior and modifying its SEO accordingly. Furthermore, Google attempts to consolidate its various properties whenever and wherever possible. This is ostensibly done because of the fact that it streamlines the SEO process and creates a single outlet for it rather than having it spread across a multitude of properties each of which will have to be individually managed in order to make them worthwhile.
"Creating one great site instead of multiple microsites is the best way to encourage organic growth over time.", said Google.
