There was an fascinating query about why Google would solely present one in every of two websites which might be distinctive however can rank for comparable queries in the identical set of search outcomes. John Mueller of Google stated usually Google would present the 2 websites, even when they’re comparable, even when they’ve the identical possession. So it could be one other problem.
The particular websites weren’t named, so it made it arduous for John to reply. However I do know of many websites that this may apply to. For instance, a search on [Jordan Retro 9] brings up search outcomes from each footlocker.com and eastbay.com – each owned by Foot Locker, Inc and each rank simply positive.
The particular query got here up on the 14:52 mark the place the query was round why Google began to take two websites which have distinctive however comparable content material and never present a type of websites within the search outcomes. Google as a substitute hides the opposite web site within the “omitted outcomes” part.
Here’s a display screen shot of what he means by omitted outcomes:
The particular query was:
I’ve a query about omitted outcomes we printed two massive dot coms, horoscope and astrology, every with every personal url in content material groups. After rating on the primary web page for astrology queries for a number of years in February final yr solely one of many websites started to point out up for regular search outcomes at a time. Whichever web site has the very best rating for a given question will present up, with the opposite web site being categorised as an omitted consequence. There isn’t any duplicate content material throughout hyperlinks between the websites. I’m curious why that is occurring.
John stated with out trying on the particular question and websites, it might be arduous for him to know. He did say “often with two web sites if they are not utterly the identical then we might rank them individually, even when there’s type of like an possession relationship there.”
He thinks there could also be one thing else happening and requested him to publish extra particulars within the Webmaster boards.
Here’s what John stated:
it is it is actually arduous to say with out trying on the particular websites and searching on the particular scenario.
So often with two web sites if they are not utterly the identical then we might rank them individually, even when there’s type of like an possession relationship there.
So from that viewpoint it may also simply be one thing that’s type of not associated to to what you are suspecting in that that our algorithms assume that it is like the identical web site we should always solely present one in every of these on the identical time.
I’ve seen conditions the place if there are massive variety of websites which might be concerned, numerous domains which might be algorithms would possibly say effectively all of those domains are primarily the identical content material and we should always simply choose one in every of these to point out quite than like all of those. However often if in the event that they’re two web sites and so they’re type of distinctive in their very own methods, then that is one thing the place we might attempt to present them individually.
