Google even has its own search quality evaluation guidelines that are frequently updated and worth to check out. However, having this big list it is really hard not to lose your tactics and know what to look for to improve your ranking. So in between hundreds of all the factors, here are the main ones I would exclude that need more attention:

Page quality

Google itself indicates the most important factors of the page quality. How to know if your website can be highly rated?

The Purpose of the Page – Google cares about the growth of the internet and the benefits of the websites in it. Common helpful and beneficial page purposes include sharing information that could even be personal or social, sharing any forms of media, files, and software to download, sharing original opinion or point of view, entertaining, selling products or services that are on demand, allowing discussions. Any helpful pages are most liked by Google and those that have a potential of spreading hate, cause harm or misinform users can receive only lowest rating.

E-A-T or Expertise, Authoritativeness -Trustworthiness an important characteristic for all beneficial pages. It includes the expertise of the content creator, the authoritativeness and the trustworthiness of the content creator and the website itself. The standard for the expertise depends on what the topic of the page is.

Content also includes the features and functionality of the website, so it is important to test them out. To create this type of content it should take a huge amount of at least one of the following: time, effort, expertise, and talent or skill. The amount of the content as well depends on the purpose of the page.

Website Information and information about who is responsible for the main content – high quality pages should have clear and detailed information about the website, so the users of it could feel comfortable trusting the page.

Website security

Google is happy if your website has HTTPS – it even gives you a padlock on Chrome and indicates that your website is secured. It is good not only for the padlock, HTTPS comes only with SSL which creates a secure connection between the website and the browser. This is a big indicator that can encourage users to register to the website and even make a payment. As HTTPS is giving you more trustworthiness, it is also helping you to rank higher on Google Search Engine.

Website Reputation and reputation of who is responsible for the main content – for the high-quality ranking in Google, the website should be highly rated in the well trusted review websites for example in Google reviews.
