Google is the most popular internet search engine and even if we have to admit the popularity of such tools as yahoo, msn and altavista – Google is the leader nowadays. If you would like to trick Google – the answer is – it is virtually impossible, however it is possible to get high rank on yahoo or altavista.

o Information versus commercial sites. If you are enthusiast of something and you do not do it for profit – chances are that Google will sponsor your activity by ranking your website higher than commercial sites, trying to make money on your subject
