Google’s search engine is the world’s most popular and used tool for finding information online. With over 90% of all web traffic coming from Google, it has become more important than ever to rank on page one. This article will discuss the top 5 factors you need to know when trying to rank on Google!
Write and publish quality content
The first factor you need to have on your side is quality content. Quality content provides value and will help readers understand the article or blog post quickly, without a ton of effort.
High-quality content can be written in any niche, but it must provide insight for your audience and solve their problem.
Ensure that this valuable information that your visitors are looking for is easily found on page one of a Google search.
Quality content should be written in the following format:
· Quality introduction, with clear and concise information about what you will discuss.
· Unique insights that are not available from other websites or articles.
· Actionable solutions to common problems your readers may have
Optimize your site for search engines
The second factor you need to rank on Google is optimizing your site for the search engine. Search engines use keywords and content to find relevant pages, so make sure that both of these are present in abundance!
You should write a keyword-rich title for each page (i.e., “How To Rank On Google”), have meta descriptions for each page, use keywords in the body of your post and make sure that you have a robots.txt file set up to let search engines know what pages not to index and which ones are okay.
Promote your site on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and LinkedIn
Another factor you need to rank on Google is promoting your site. The key here is consistency and finding new content strategies that work for you!
You should post original, high-quality articles or posts in a Facebook group or Page (or create one of each) with similar interests as yours.
Share these links on LinkedIn groups relevant to your niche. Promote your posts on Twitter with an appropriate hashtag and a link to the article to get more traffic from those groups!
Backlinks: build links to your site from other websites
The third factor you need to rank on Google is backlinks. Backlinks are links from other websites that point to your site and help it rank higher in the search engine results pages (SERPs).
You should create a link-building strategy for your website, including writing guest posts, submitting articles or blog post ideas, commenting on relevant blogs or forums where readers of those sites would be interested in reading about what you have written!
When doing this, keep these tips in mind: · Aim for high quality – building long-form content with great insight will show up better than short descriptions with one keyword repeated over and over again.
· Be consistent but creative – try different strategies like writing guest posts, comment on blogs related to your niche, and submit blog post ideas to different publishers.
· Don’t spam or break their rules – find blogs with high-quality standards that will be receptive to your content, don’t comment on irrelevant posts just for the sake of commenting! Spamming is a surefire way to have all links removed from your site and not rank in Google at all.
Mobile-first: your site needs to be optimized for Mobile
A final tip is that your site should be optimized for Mobile. Google has a new Mobile-First algorithm, which means when it comes to ranking in the SERPs, sites will rank higher if they are designed responsively with appropriate sizing and formatting of content across screen sizes (mobile-first)!
