Indented Listings

Indented listings are when you have a page that ranks in Google for a given search phrase or keyword and you have another page, optimized for the same keyword phrase within the same website that has as many inbound links or better PR as the first page listed. If such is the case, Google "indents" the listing, giving you a double or indented listing.

When a major tire manufacturer recently contacted our office, they were amazed at another client's top positions for a particular search term: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 7. When I examined the listing, I discovered several indented listings for similar pages within the clients site that had become indented listings.

Indented Listings

  1. Make a copy of a page on your current website you that would like to get an indented listing for.
  2. Change the center content area completely and re-optimize it for the same keyword phrase.
  3. Make sure you link to the new page (indented) from the original page.
  4. Make sure all the pages in your website link to both pages with the same anchor text (and also the keyword phrase you optimized for).
  5. Now you have to get a few inbound links to the new (to be indented) page from other credible websites so that the page ranks at least as well as the origional.
