Thanks to huge servers and databases, as well as high-performance processors, Google's algorithms study the relevance of topics covered on the site's pages in record time. And here it is important to work with the rich content, keywords and semantic field of each page on a website. The more backlinks they have, the higher Google's popularity indicator will be. Backlinks are positive elements to attest to the quality of a website.

Many other parameters are taken into account, such as the age of the site, the volume of the page, the loading speed of the page, its audience ... Therefore, SEO is important, but it is also necessary that web pages do not be too cumbersome with the code for them to appear quickly. Google will never promote a slow site because its robots need to be able to index pages quickly.

Finally, traversing all this data allows Google to know the order of priority that will be given to the pages indexed in its files. Also, in this case, the activity of the SEO agency is important to get good results in terms of visibility of a website. In fact, the skills of mastering Google and SEO codes are complex.
