Everyone wants to be on the first page of Google Search returns. Google Rankings change all of the time and you have to be on top of your game to stay to on the top. There are multiple ways to get on top of Google Rankings for your business and it will take a little work to get them done. Gone are the days where you can cheat your way to the top. Sadly there are also companies out there that claim they can get you to the top of Google Rankings overnight. I can tell you that is not nor will it ever be the case. I have worked on sites that have gone that route and it’s an easy six-month fix if you are lucky.
Depending on the competition of your keyword you want to show up for it can take anywhere between 30 days to 3 months before you start showing up on the first page of search. Sorry but that is the cold hard facts. But once you show up on the first page you have to work to get to the top spot. That is where people start falling down. It takes work and sometimes if you are self-employed you don’t have all the time in the world to learn SEO or get the work done. Well, we offer a service to help with that and you can find it here with our Monthly SEO Service
So if you want to give it a shot on your own, here is what you can do.
Plain Text Google Rankings
CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT. I don’t care what page it is your content needs to be tailored around the keyword you want to rank for. Your home page is the flagship page of your site. So you need to make sure that there is at the VVVVVERRRRYYYY least 300 words no less and it should have your keyword in there at least 4 times. It also needs to resonate with the viewer and answer the question they typed into Google to get to you.
After that, you need to have consistent content being added to your site so people will keep clicking back to your site. So share your content on your social networks to get them to come to your site. This is called the click-through rate.
