Each website have a google rank it is calculated based on Google’s algorithm and it changing over 500 times a year. However, the biggest factor in determining Google’s rankings tends to be based on those little blue links that you see on almost all websites.
There are number of strategies to make your website on the first page of a google search. It is not easy and no quick way to make a better google rank. Here are some way to improve SEO for your website.
1. Pool your votes.
Often business owners don’t realize that www.website.com and http://website.com are seen as different pages by search engines. This can result in any links that you receive being diluted between the two pages. It’s the equivalent of a political party splitting up and the votes being shared by the two new parties. The solution to this common problem is to tell Google that you want all the votes from www.website.com to be counted towards http://website.com. This can be easily implemented by using a permanent (known as a 301) redirect from one of the pages to the other.
2. Provide testimonials.
Every company relies on other businesses to supply products and services. Brainstorm a list of all the businesses that you use and recommend and offer to provide these businesses with testimonials. Often companies will have a dedicated page on their website for testimonials, acting as social proof to potential customers. Usually the company will jump at the chance to receive a testimonial from a satisfied customer and will be more than happy to link back to your website. This technique is a win-win for both websites and helps cultivate a good relationship with suppliers.
3. Donate to charity.
Often charities will list their donors and benefactors on their website. If there is a relevant charity your business can donate to, asked to be listed on this page with a link back to your website.
4. Volunteer your services.
If your business can’t afford to donate money to a charity, maybe you could offer your services. Alternatively, you could have a staff team-building day on which you help a local charity. This is good for moral and can help promote your company.
5. Locate references without links.
Look for web pages that mention your business or website. Without a link back to your site, Google will not count the citation as a vote. You can use Google Alerts to create an automated notification, so that anytime a website mentions your business, you will receive an e-mail. You can then get in touch and ask them to provide a link back to your website.
6. Target the right keywords.
One of the biggest mistakes that websites make is targeting the wrong keywords. Take the time to analyze the keywords that produce conversions and make you money. One way to do this is to have analytics software, like Google Analytics, installed on your website so that you can see how visitors are interacting and finding your site. Often business target broad, high-volume keywords that convert well, instead of ranking keywords based on multiples of volume, competitiveness and conversion rate.
