Follow these suggestions, and watch your website rise the ranks to the top of search-engine results.

1. Publish Relevant Content
Quality content is the number one driver of your search engine rankings and there is no substitute for great content. Quality content created specifically for your intended user increases site traffic, which improves your site's authority and relevance.

Identify a keyword phrase for each page. Think about how your reader might search for that specific page (with phrases like 'mechanical engineering in Michigan, best applied physics program, Michigan Tech degrees). Then, repeat this phrase several times throughout the page once or twice in the opening and closing paragraphs, and two to four more times throughout the remaining content.

Don't forget to use bold, italics, heading tags, and other emphasis tags to highlight keyword phrases, but don't overdo it. Never sacrifice good writing for SEO. The best pages are written for the user, not for the search engine.

2. Update Your Content Regularly
Regularly updated content is viewed as one of the best indicators of a site€™s relevancy, so be sure to keep it fresh.

3. Have a link-worthy site
Focus on creating relevant links within the text. Instead of having 'click here' links, try writing out the name of the destination. 'Click here' has no search engine value beyond the attached URL, whereas 'Michigan Tech Enterprise Program' is rich with keywords and will improve your search engine rankings as well as the ranking of the page you are linking to.

4. Use alt tags
Always describe your visual and video media using alt tags, or alternative text descriptions. They allow search engines to locate your page, which is very much crucial.

    Links Pointing to Your Website
    One of the aspects that contribute to a web page being considered important is the number of links pointing to that page. For example, if your page has 100 quality links leading to it, it will be ranked higher than one that only has 20.

    But what are high quality links? These are links from other popular pages, that is, pages that have, themselves, many links pointing to them.

    Anyway, in general, since Google ranks your pages according to the number of links pointing at your page, your site will do better if it has more links pointing to it.
