Google's presentation of a Discourse site


(James Cook) #1

When searching for the term ‘discourse meta’ you’re presented with the above view on Google.

When searching for ‘meta discourse’ you’re presented with the following view:

How can I make sure that my forum shows as the first one in the search results? Do I need to do anything specific or just hope that I have enough traffic for Google to deem my site important enough?

Also, for anyone with more insight than me on this topic, why does Google present the same site in different ways depending on the search term used?

I hope there is nothing to-do in Discourse.

Google’s algorithm is sensitive on order of the search terms.

As far as I’m aware, this comes into the Mysteries That Are Google category. There seems to be nothing much you can to do to influence it.
