Bing: poor grammar and typos can lead to lower web page rankings

In Bing’s official blog, Duane Forrester has published a new post in which he explains that you should check the grammar on your web pages:

“If you’re constantly on the fly and typing the word ‘from’ comes out as ‘form’ (I frequently do this), imagine how a reader sees this? It’s confusing when reading, to say the least. At best they simply move past the typo and keep reading. At worst they simply throw in the towel at such repeated issues and seek a new source for content to consume.

If you struggle to get past typos, why would an engine show a page of content with errors higher in the rankings when other pages of error free content exist to serve the searcher? Like it or not, we’re judged by the quality of the results we show. So we are constantly watching the quality of the content we see.”

It can get worse

Bad grammar can be bad for your rankings. Bad HTML code can be even worse. Many people are not aware of the technical errors on their web pages.

Some technical errors can be the reason why your website is not listed on search engines. If you haven’t done it yet, check your website with the website audit tool in SEOprofiler now. The audit tool makes sure that search engines can index all of your web pages:
