How to create high-level trustworthiness content?

The tips to high-level trustworthiness content creation which can meet the recommendations for Expertise, Authoritativeness, Trustworthiness of Google, and the ways for creating structured data that meet these recommendations.

You can listen to all the content except for the example of structured data.

Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (EAT) to determine the level of content

Let's try to compare any website with the currency. The currency is reliable only when it is trusted by the residents of the country where this currency is applied. For example, compare the following currency pairs: the US dollar and the Zimbabwean dollar and also the euro and the Venezuelan bolívar. People trust the US dollar and the euro, but do not trust the currency of Zimbabwe and of Venezuela. The same can work for websites. If your website evokes trust, then it will be like such as a reserve currency. Conversely, a website without trust will be like a currency with hyperinflation, which the entire world ignores.

The Search Quality Raters Guideline of Google informs us:

What makes a High quality page? A High quality page should have a beneficial purpose and achieve that purpose well. In addition, High quality pages have the following characteristics:

  • High level of Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (E-A-T).
  • A satisfying amount of high quality Main Content, including a descriptive or helpful title.
  • Satisfying website information and/or information about who is responsible for the website. If the page is primarily for shopping or includes financial transactions, then it should have satisfying customer service information.
  • Positive website reputation for a website that is responsible for the Main Content on the page. Positive reputation of the creator of the main content, if different from that of the website.

Finding Who is Responsible for the Website and Who Created the Content on the Page Every page belongs to a website, and it should be clear:

  • Who (what individual, company, business, foundation, etc.) is responsible for the website.
  • Who (what individual, company, business, foundation, etc.) created the content on the page you are evaluating.

When a high level of authoritativeness or expertise is needed, the reputation of a website should be judged on what expert opinions have to say. Recommendations from expert sources, such as professional societies, are strong evidence of very positive reputation.

We need to find out what outside, independent sources say about the website. When there is disagreement between what the website says about itself and what reputable independent sources say about the website, we’ll trust the independent sources.

For all other pages that have a beneficial purpose, the amount of expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness (E-A-T) is very important. Please consider:

  • The authoritativeness of the creator of the Main Content, the Main Content itself, and the website.
  • The trustworthiness of the creator of the Main Content, the Main Content itself, and the website.
