How to get your website on google first page?
First, you need to make sure your website has been indexed by Google. To find out if it is, type site:yourdomain.com into the Google search box, replacing yourdomain.com with your actual domain name. If you see a listing of your website’s pages, then Google has already indexed your site and will continue to visit it occasionally to check for updates. If your website is not listed, submit it here: http://www.google.com/addurl. It will take 1 or 2 weeks for Google to visit and index your website.
Secondly, remember, Google will only display web pages that are relevant to the keyword being searched. The first step is to make sure your web page’s text is related to the keyword in question. If it’s not, chances are Google won’t show it.
Third, just because your website does not show up on the first page, doesn’t mean it is not showing up at all. Go to the bottom of the results page and click “Next” for page 2 and so on. Your website may be on page 2, page 82 or somewhere in between.
Getting on Google Organically
The other way to get on page 1 of Google and other search engines is the organic, or natural, method. These are the main results that show up below the ads or local map section on search engine results pages (see graphic above). These results cannot be achieved by paying money to Google – they are achieved with careful and long-term manipulation of many factors that Google uses when ranking relevancy. For example:
- Quality and Length of Your Page Content – Your website’s pages should be full of unique and useful information that will benefit your ideal customer or client. The longer the better, as long as it is high quality.
- Quality and Number of Inbound Links – If other sites are linking to yours, especially big important sites that have content relating to yours, then Google will rank your site higher.
- Mobile Friendly Website – Are your website pages mobile-friendly? Your site should be optimized for mobile devices and easy to navigate so users on any device can find what they need fast.
- Page Speed – Your web pages should load fast on all devices. Slow loading web pages could negatively affect your ranking on Google.
- Keywords in Page Content – Obviously, if the keywords you are targeting actually appear on your site in the text and titles of the pages, you will rank better for those keywords.
- Authority of Domain Name – The longer you’ve owned the domain, the better. Also, include keywords in your domain name if you can.
- Secure Pages – Your web pages should load via https so they are secure. Google, and regular humans, like to see secure pages, even if you’re not processing credit cards or obtaining personal information.
- URL Structure – “Pretty” URL’s are better If your page URL’s are human readable, that’s a good thing.
Apart from ranking higher on Google search result pages (SERPs) you will also have plenty of material to share on social media – and eventually your writing will become so good and valuable that people will share it on their own, promoting your business for you.
Once that starts to happen, other people in the industry will start to follow you on social media and link to your articles.
With that, you’ll slowly become an authority (one of the six principles of persuasion, which I’ll write about in one of the future articles). Being an authority has nothing to do with importance, though – it’s about being perceived as a professional. This, in turn, increases trust of your clients towards you and brings more business in.
