Getting ranked higher on Google’s search results is something every website or business owner would love, and it’s not as difficult as you might think! I’m going to give you three steps that are guaranteed to increase where you show up on Google.
Choose the keywords you want to rank for
Unless you know what you’re shooting for, how are you going to know if you’ve made it? Use things like the Google Keyword Tool to find out what people are searching for related to your business. Remember, if you are local, including your city, state or region in your keywords makes it a lot easier to rank for them.
Put that keyword ON YOUR PAGE!
How can Google find your business for people if you don’t tell it exactly what you do. Make sure your keywords are included in key places on your website, like headings, paragraphs and links.
Get other sites to link to yours
This can be the most challenging part of search engine optimization, because it’s not something you can directly control. But if you can get owners of other sites related to your industry, like blogs, directories and sites from different regions, it will boost your search engine rankings dramatically.
It seems simple (except maybe the link building part), but it really, really works. Give it a try, you’ll be amazed at the results!
