The Little SEO Tip That Could – Part 2

16 Apr

Last week, I drove home my #1 tip: not trying to outsmart Google. Before we continue, though, it’s worth saying again:

Don’t try to sketchily “trick” Google into ranking your site higher. It’s NOT worth it.

To get your site higher in Google’s search rankings, you need to provide worthwhile content on a regular basis – but can you include just anything?

The short answer is “nope, sorry.” Your new content has to be fresh and interesting for your readership. To create the kind of content that Google loves, here’s what you have to do:

  • Post regularly, at least once a week or preferably more often.
  • DO NOT copy other people’s posts. Google knows if you’re plagiarizing and your site will be penalized accordingly.
  • There is no magic word count number, but to find the right length for you, read this helpful post.
  • Include keywords in your article in strategic places such as the title and within the first sentence or two. (Next week I’ll be doing a longer post specifically about keywords, so stay tuned for that one!)

If you would like help getting your website ranked higher in Google, please get in touch with me. I have gotten websites ranking on the first page of Google in JUST ONE DAY (no kidding!). I can also help you manage your blog so you can have a “set it and forget it” system to grow your search engine traffic without any extra time commitments or writing expertise on your part.

Stay tuned for next week when I’ll talk about how to choose and place keywords for optimal Google visibility.
