How do I rank high on Google
People often ask me how do I rank high on Google? Well, I just follow some simple rules every single time and above all, I keep consistent. I’m going to go through some important pointers to give you a taster of what I do to achieve these consistently high rankings.
Researching Content Post Titles
This is one of the most important but most overlooked tactics. A lot of network marketers inparticular, seem to overlook this important tactic. A content post title is the most important part of your content’s SEO because this is how your content will be found in the search engines. When someone goes to Google do you think they are about to search for, “today I went to the shops and saw a purple duck”? No-one on the search engines cares what you saw or what you think about purple ducks! They are going to type in their problem or issue that they need an answer for.
If you do not want any traffic from the search engines then I am sure that web 2.0 sites like Facebook will only be too happy to learn about your purple ducks!
Still, It is well worth tidying up your optimisation for your potential customers though because if you are not search engine reliant, you still need to answer people’s questions whatever medium you are using to reach people. You can goto Yahoo Answers to get a feel for what people are asking through forums and the search engines. Once you decide on something that fits with your market place, pop it into Google search as a phrase search and see how many searches it attracts. You can then decide whether it’s something you think will get you traffic without lots of competition.
Headings will help you rank high on Google because the search engines see headings as good SEO. It splits the content up into readable chunks and is good for the user experience. Try and put some good keywords in there so it describes the content that is coming.
Linking structure is all important when looking at the overall SEO for your content. Linking your content to authority sites and to content within your blog will work in your favour. Linking to other sites, especially authority sites will show the search engines that you are providing the visitor with good content and with options to really find the information they need. It will also get you good links which the search engines see as votes for your content. I like to send people to other pieces of content within my blog and also send them to my Facebook page and sometimes my You Tube Channel. It keeps visitors within my brand and it helps build their trust.
Using Videos Within Your Content
You’ll know from my blog, that my opinion of video is huge. You Tube currently gets approximately 1 billion hits every day. There are other video platforms such as Daily Motion and Vimeo. They all get a ton of traffic every-day and you could be getting some of that. If one of your videos is optimised properly and has a big-time keyword in there, you could be going viral with your product or service and you’ll get loads of traffic and hopefully some sales and sign-ups. My You Tube videos are ranking just as high or higher than my blog content and I have links in there to send traffic to.
Social network Posting
Once you have completed your piece of content and published it, it will get picked up by the search engine spiders and it will get ranked. The next thing to do is to share your content where there are millions of people on another medium – Social networking sites.
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Stumbleupon, Digg, Reddit, Delicious and Google+ are just a few examples of the huge amount of networking sites that are online. Each different site has a different way of sharing content and are used by different groups of people. As an example, reddit and Pinterest are used by different types of people and the sites are completely different.
Reddit is used mainly by males who are into tech and Pinterest is mainly used by women. When you look at your product or service you must research where your market place is represented online and goto it. This is just targeting your traffic, going upto it and putting your product or service within it.
I goto Facebook groups and search for groups that are appropriate to my niche or market place. Then I have prospects ready to approach in a friendly manner. I use Twitter search to put my keywords into and I can find people to approach and help them with my blog posts. Like forum posting it can take time but well worth it.
So, when asking how do I rank high on Google, take into account the points I have raised above. I could go into each subject much more deeply but I’ll happily go into that if you want to get in touch with any questions you may have.
