Is Reading Grade Level a Google Factor?

It may come as a surprise to any seo guru on what you can learn when exploring this question. I personally was ignorant about it. Among many factors and algorithms that are already overwhelming to keep up with to try and know what influences page rank and or search engine result position of a site, I have found this amazing study by's wertwert (his user name on, and he says as quoted:
"Personally, I think the readability algorithm is flawed because it is based on the notion that words with fewer syllables are more readable. But if we went to a 5th grade class and asked the students to define “cartoon” and “cherub” I know which one they will get wrong more often and they are both two syllable words. The algorithm does not account for how commonly words are used. Also if you went back 150 years the results of my example would probably be reversed." - source:

It will surely help you start having an actionable plan and strategy to improve the ranking of your websites and let me tell you, that it ain't the classic backlinks-and-lots-of-original-unique-content-because-content-is-king kinda crap.

"2. Keyword Appears in Top Level Domain: Doesn’t give the boost that it used to, but having your keyword in the domain still acts as a relevancy signal. After all, they still bold keywords that appear in a domain name.

13. Keyword in Description Tag: Another relevancy signal. Not especially important now, but still makes a difference.

14. Keyword Appears in H1 Tag: H1 tags are a “second title tag” that sends another relevancy signal to Google, according to results from this correlation study by

15. Keyword is Most Frequently Used Phrase in Document: Having a keyword appear more than any other likely acts as a relevancy signal.

19. LSI Keywords in Title and Description Tags: As with webpage content, LSI keywords in page meta tags probably help Google discern between synonyms. May also act as a relevancy signal.

24. Image Optimization: Images on-page send search engines important relevancy signals through their file name, alt text, title, description and caption.

28. Keyword Prominence: Having a keyword appear in the first 100-words of a page’s content appears to be a significant relevancy signal.

29. Keyword in H2, H3 Tags: Having your keyword appear as a subheading in H2 or H3 format may be another weak relevancy signal. SEOMoz’s panel agrees:

32. Outbound Link Theme: According to SEOMoz in, search engines may use the content of the pages you link to as a relevancy signal. For example, if you have a page about cars that links to movie-related pages, this may tell Google that your page is about the movie Cars, not the automobile.

49. Page Category: The category the page appears on is a relevancy signal. A page that’s part of a closely related category should get a relevancy boost compared to a page that’s filed under an unrelated or less related category.

50. WordPress Tags: Tags are WordPress-specific relevancy signal.  According to in their article on

    “The only way it improves your SEO is by relating one piece of content to another, and more specifically a group of posts to each other”
