When it comes to achieving high search engine rankings, you need to consider several factors that play important role in it.

Search Engine Journal contributor Miranda Miller has answered this important question dealing with the Google ranking factor: Are HTML Lists A Google Ranking Factor?

She says, “In order for HTML lists to be a direct ranking factor, adding them to your page and how you use them would have to be weighted within the Google search ranking algorithm.

A 2010 Google patent analyzed by Bill Slawski shortly after its release indicates that (at least, at that time) Google used HTML markup for both unordered and ordered lists in its evaluation of a webpage.

Specifically, the method described in the patent helped the algorithm determine the semantic relationship between words, in its pursuit of understanding the page’s topical relevance.”
