Let’s hear from Matt Cutts on How search engine works.

A web search you do searches the Google’s indexing of the web. Google spiders (the software program) fetch a few related web pages, go through the links from those webpages, go through all the webpages linked in the chain and bring out the billion pages gathered till now, into consideration. The fetching happens on basis of the search terms, synonyms of the terms, number of times the keyword is contained in the pages and their position (appears in URL or title or paragraphs or bullets or image alt text or so) in the web, fame of the website in whose webpage the term appears, the page’s rank, backlinks to the page, links going out the page and the importance of these links and similar few factors.

Google is strict on quality; never compromises to deliver the best! Each search result it produces holds a title, a URL and a snippet of information on what’s contained in the URL. Links to related pages and related search terms are displayed too. One can also see the relevant ads at the top and right hand side of the regular search; Google makes it a point to show only the exactly matching ads else show nothing at all.

Google doesn’t give higher rank to the sites running on Adsense.

Buying Adwords doesn’t mean you’re going to grab the top rank in organic search. You still can’t miss out to implement the SEO tactics.

In one of the Videos of Matt Cutts, he talks about the biggest SEO myths existing in most business minds: Buying ads takes your google rank higher, the next is contrary and says when you don’t buy ads you rank high and the last one says google pushes businesses to buy ads.

Linking, guest blogging, social bookmarking the sites onto directories, and each of such acts is thought to be solely giving one the rank one; Not the case at all, says Matt. Any single tool isn’t your sole white hat SEO guide! Going perfectly by the Google guidelines is all that takes one to get a good rank! Hear it from Matt Cutts here.
