It depends on the factors that you are analyzing. If you are not analyzing a key factor in what makes you rank in the top 10, your results are not going to be good. A little like the line we saw earlier where we didn’t analyze any pages that had a citation flow of over 60. So our results were bad for anything over 60.
So here, if we’ve forgotten to analyze something, we don’t know its contribution. And if we don’t know its contribution, it could be way, way, way more important than citation flow. It might be an E-A-T factor for example, or it might be an entity related factor. Yeah. And that is part of the problem is that we’re going to tend to put in the features or the factors that we traditionally think about, which is this list here.
