saju mohan originally shared to SEO+ - Search Engine Optimization / Website Design (SEO Community):
 
Why isn't   #Google     showing its wiki page
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google ) result in top 10 result for the search query: [google] 

Wonder why the Wiki page was pushed to 2nd page? (Even though the wiki result is shown in knowledge graph.) 

For most of the searches #wiki   tops the results. 

Since its query based on a company most results, google always try to show its wiki page (if it has one) in the top results.  

Why its not in the case here? 

Google want not show the best result as they always say and do..  

Google find the wiki page less significant?

I feel bad for the clients of 90% of the SEO "experts" out there. When people ask me about search, the very first thing I tell them is that the vast majority of search consultants are incompetent or crooks.

What's peoples thoughts on this. I still feel guest blogging is a perfectly legit way to promote your site as long as its not just to gain a links. There's so much more that can be done by building a relationship with a good quality site such as product reviews, social shares and gaining traffic from the blogs readers. #guestblogging #SEO #contentmarketing

Totally agree Rick. I think Cutts post on gust blogging was a little hasty and didn't explain things fully.

Why Google Fail to recognize asterisk symbol for search query [*] ?

Example: For search [(] https://www.google.co.in/#q=( 
Google identifies it as symbol and shows a results of Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket)

Also fails to show correct results for the queries connected to it like [* symbol name] [* symbol name on keyboard]

For every other search for 'symbol search' google identifies them perfectly.

Hats off to Big G which shows results for searches with symbol alone where as other SEs fail to identify none of them. 

Where as we know *, an asterisk character, known as a wildcard, to match one or more words in a phrase. Whether the algo is confused with this?

This is not a common search query, no one will search for the symbol alone on google but the iam sure people will search like [* symbol name] wonder why G couldn't pull any data for asterisk symbol?
