Is google really confused to categorize even top 1000 website in 2011 or SEO problem in 2012

June 14, 2011 in List of google website category, Search Engine Optimization 2012

Its 2011 and Google bots are not able to categorize many top rank websites of the world declared by google and Google is not even sure about Big social network like myspace.com. Google in-facts do not believe twitter.com to be social network and it is categorized as Email & Messaging website. Another big name imageshack.us is un-categorized by Google and this un-categorization has raised question is Google biased or Google is still confused about their search results?

There is long list of websites (in top 1000 rankings in terms of unique visitor and pageviews) facing problems of categorization issues with google search and they are gocsgo.com (55,000,000 Unique visitors), partypoker.com (41,000,000 Unique visitors), iegallery.com (26,000,000 Unique visitors),vimeo.com (21,000,000 Unique visitors), uoyoo.cn, wp.pl, wan71.com, robtex.com, legacy.com, yfrog.com, docstoc.com, zifugame.com, friend.ly, shopzilla.com, and still plenty of website with more than 1000,000 unique visitors are struggling to be categorized by google bots.

 

It is very important for webmasters to know how Google rates a website, other wise it will not possible for any website owner to rank their website properly. No SEO would be possible in 2011 or SEO in 2012, Google have already made big change on 11 April 2011. Strategics for seo in 2012 would be based on website categorization and not on any backlinks, content or website design. Make a website category friendly to rate it top on search results rather than playing on useless keywords. The right example for right SEO in 2012 would be google shopping, if your website is not a shopping website no rating or Search Engine Optimization in 2012 would be possible or would ever work for your website.

The question is google confusion or google plan. They have introduced Google voice search and google voice search is also not not able to recognize words properly due to poor quality. This has raised question wether Google voice search will be success or a big failure, however the use of voice search is although very limited.

Even big Antivirus website avast.com is not in Antivirus & Malware category by google. Is this categorization of websites big plan of google or still a big confusion of google.
