Hello all,

I am now the administrator of a Non-English language online dictionary. It is already the biggest  and official dictionary in that language. There are more than 2,5 million words in that dictionary. I want our results to appear on higher results on Google when someone looks for a word. How can I achieve that? Thanks.

There's about a million questions I'd need to ask, first.

 

What are some sample words?

How high does your website appear for each word?

How common is the language (searches for Swahili are going to be lower than for Icelandic)?

Thanks WingedPanther.

 

The dictionary is in Turkish, it's a Turkish to Turkish dictionary. Sample words are like : kitap (book), kalem (pencil) etc.. It's the biggest dictionary in Turkish so I can easily say that it has all words in that language inside.

 

In some words, the dictionary comes as first result in Google, but in some other words, it doesn't appear even in first 3 pages. 

 

I can say that Turkish is used by like 100 million people around the world.

 

Thanks.

I don't really know about this, but it's in my understanding that there's a "define / definition" keyword in Google that makes dictionaries' definition of the words (and wickis) mostly atop of searchs.

You should look for that meta-tag that tells Google the page is about the word's definition.

I think you're going to find those results somewhat true in general. If I search for "experience" I get definitions near the top of my search results. If I search for "Catholicism", however, I get very different results, with far more information ABOUT it than definitions OF it.

 

Google's ranks are going to be based on what most people are really looking for when they type in a search word. When someone types in "experience", they probably want to know what it means. When they type in "books" they're probably shopping. The search results reflect that.

 

So, with that in mind, look at the words that point to your dictionary versus those that don't, and ask yourself what someone typing that word probably wants. If it's not a definition, you're probably NEVER going to rank high for that word.
