    Its kind of hard to explain what i mean but lets say i have a blog about baseball.. And i talk about a bunch of teams like the phillies, and somone searches like "phillies blog" or something but the name of my blog is actually "baseball" or something like that... How do i make it so google will also list my site as phillies blog? Or does it automatically do that? If you don't understand what i mean i am sorry its just kind of hard to explain.. Thank you if u know how to answer that!

    Well the simple answer would be to use the term "phillies blog" on your page a few times, and to link to it a few places from the text "phillies blog"

    The long and more reasonable answer awaits you after you start reading about actual SEO. I suggest actually reading some outlines on how to SEO for specific terms.

    Well... basically you have to "tell" Google what you want to rank for. So, you have to put your most important keywords in the places that Google checks to see what your "blog" is about.

    So, some of these places would be your "title tag", "H1 tag"... and you would also want those "keywords" that tell Google what your page is about (in this instance "Phillies Blog") to show up on the page more times then other phrases (this is called keyword density).

    So, that's the short answer. I'd start by downloading some ebooks in the download section on SEO and you'll quickly learn what all of that means and how to do it!

    Ir it's a Wordpress site get the "All in one SEO Plugin" That can help with what you want to do. Also make sure you use that keyword a few times in your posts. Google will pick up on that.

    If you would like PM me with your site page URL and keywords and I'll run a blast for you gratis. :)

    Use your keywords in most of the places so that Google can pick your keywords and know about the blog and listed accordingly.

    That's the whole point of Google buddy...

    It's a search engine - which means it indexes pages according to their content. If it didn't, it wouldn't be a lot of use!

    If you mean how does the technology work; they check out the various pages that discuss the whole crawling/spidering and indexing technology that the spiders use.
