Ranking Is EASY: My Christmas Gift Tips
- SEO |
As the title of this thread says: ranking in general is easy (don't take that too seriously, and go trying your luck ranking for auto insurance )
Why is it easy you ask? Because the core basic functions of Google's algorithm is still the same. It's like this:
The core basic functions of Google is like a Queen that Google is trying to protect. Google is like Britain's government protecting Queen Elizabeth... in order to get to the queen, you will first need to get through her BODY GUARDS.
Same thing in the world of SEO. Google Penguin, Panda, EMD Update, and other nameless algorithms are simply body guards that protect the core functions of Google. Once you take away the body guards, it's still the same old Google. High Quality Contextual/Authority Links + A decent to great site = Gold. It's really that simple
How can I say that with certainty? Goes to secret lap on Monday: a site of mine which is 3 months old sitting there all forgotten, main keyword gets exact 9000 searches a month, 1 article... (yes, 1 article, i got lazy ) previous rank? N/A. I throw 2 high quality contextual backlinks at the site and like magic, poooof! top of page 3, and it's only wednesday. My point? Core is still the same, I simply bypassed the body guards
Anyway, with that understanding, I hope I given you a new perspective.
Now for the tips:
1: They always say "vary" your anchor text. This is true, but remember, do NOT have 100% of your backlinks pointing to your homepage... that is a red flag to Google's body guards
2: Remember - If you are ranking in the top 20, Google thinks you are relevant, just not important enough to rank number 1... yet. How to you become more important? Continue doing all the good stuff. Bad: Do Not backlink your main anchor text if you are on page 1 or even page 2. As long as you have a good variety of links coming in, and you have all on page advantage factors, you will move up
3: did you know that 4 - 5 page websites still rank and are considered "authority" sites by Google? No?? Well... take it from me, authority has nothing to do with how many useless.. i mean pages your site has
4: THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL AS AN SEO: keyword research. It is the difference between making money and making no money if your strategy of making money online is via the search engines.
... and there you have it, happy holidays, enjoy
