Well there have been a lot of questions from friends of mine on how to get a lot more attention drawn to them when they have a website that is maybe not as popular or ranking as well as you might want. That can be a very hard thing to figure out. Also it can seem a little overwhelming as well. You probably know that there are a lot of SEO Guru’s that might say they know the exact way to game the system and get you ranked faster and all of that.
If they say that they are going to get you ranked faster, or that they can guarantee that you will be listed on the top of Google’s search, then you need to run away. It’s a red flag that not many consider or think about. There really is no way that you can guarantee that you will be at the top of the rankings, unless you are going for a PPC campaign which is going to cost you a lot of money.
Recently Google has started to release videos from their webmaster center and gave some great tips that I try and tell my clients all the time. Here is the video:
See? Even Google is telling you that you should not try and rank for the search engines, what you want to do is make it engaging for the people that are coming to your site. Make it interesting for them, and you are going to rank well. The more people are working towards appealing to their customers the better you are going to be in the listings. Also you need to keep a blog. Bringing in fresh new content is going to help rank you so much more than just having links built to your site.
It is what I am trying to do here on my site, and I know that it is going to slowly bring more potential clients to my site to learn more about SEO and how to get better rankings and increase their sales.
As always if you have questions please let me know down in the comments. I am happy to help in anyway that I can and also to give you more information on how to have a good SEO campaign. Thanks guys!
