15 Ways to Help Your Website Rank in Search Engines

While some things count more than others, it’s important to give search engines everything they need to find your website. Yes, there’s more to it than repeating your keyword 20 times throughout a page. Here are the top 15 ways that Google and other search engines will find you:

Showing up for “Web Design NH”

1. Label your page (file name) with your phrase:

Each page you create should target the same phrase from beginning to end. For instance, I also try to show up for “creating visits” and “SEO services NH” but those are focused on another page.

2. Title pages

Your page title is in the <head> section of your HTML page. If you use WordPress, Joomla or another software to help you build the website, look for “title” and use “Web Design NH”. If you know HTML you can dive into the page code to insert your title into the <title> </title> tags.

3. Description Tags

Your page description is also within the <head> section, directly under the title tag. It will look like this: <meta name=”description” content=”Creating Visits is a web design company in Bedford NH. ”>

4. Keyword Tags

Your page description is also within the <head> section, directly under the title tag. It will look like this: <meta name=”keywords” content=”web design nh, web design Bedford nh, web design services nh”>

The title, description and keyword tags mentioned above are hidden within the HTML. Filling in the <head> area doesn’t actually create anything on the page yet.

5. H1 Tags

H1 tags are used to surround the title of the page seen by your visitors. For instance, if you’re creating a Word document you’ll start by saving it to your desktop with a title, but it’s not necessarily the title at the top of your paper yet. When you create the title at the top of your paper you’ll increase the font size which is the same as using an <h1> Web Design NH </h1> tag.

6. Paragraph content

Inside the paragraph is where most people start spamming. I can talk about “Web Design NH” but I don’t have to write the phrase exactly. I also don’t have to make another page just to target “website design nh”. I can careful mention each word in a scrambled manner. I may only mention “NH” in the footer, but it’s still on the page and noticed when Google scrolls through my page looking for keywords.

7. Image Tags

Have you ever noticed that sometimes you can hover over an image and see a few words about it? There are two tags to put into the image here:

<img src=”yourimage.jpg”> – Without Title or Display

<img title=”Web Design NH” src=” yourimage.jpg”> With Title

<img title=” Web Design NH” alt=” Web Design NH” src=” yourimage.jpg”> With Title and Display

When you have these tags in place Google Images can find your image and display it when people search for images. It also helps your overall page because everything from the file name down to the image title mentions the same phrase. Again, if you’re using software to build your website you can find “title” somewhere when placing an image on your page.

8. Video Tags

Same as image tags. When you embed a video on your website it will include the title it already has and it shouldn’t be changed. If you create your own video be sure to title it according to the content within the video.

When you add a page to your website Steps 1 – 8 must always be followed. After creating the page correctly, follow Steps 9 – 15:

9. Blogging

Create a Blog and write once per day.

Write about web design services, techniques, and dos and don’ts. Once throughout the blog post, link to the appropriate page. For instance, this post at some point will link back to my Web Design NH page.

10. Articles

Writing articles is considered “external”, similar to writing a post on Facebook and creating a link to your website. You must write something informational about your services: “How to create a website in WordPress”. Your reward for writing the article on an external website is the ability to create a link back to your website.

11. Press Releases

A press release is exactly like an article on an external website. However the subject matter is slightly different. You’re allowed to talk about your company because you’re releasing “hot” news about a new product line, new website, new facility etc. Again, the main reason to create such a thing is for the link back to your website.

12. Forums

Talk to people in forums about your subject matter. Maybe they’re asking simple questions that you can quickly respond to. Those visitors will be happy to see your comments if they’re accurately answered. Before creating a link back to your website, make sure you’ve thoroughly answered the question. Spammers like to visit hundreds of forms per day and post shady links on them, so forum owners are ready to delete posts that just want the link. However, if you post a solid answer and have a reputable website, most forum owners will allow your link to stay posted.

13. Yahoo Questions

Similar to forums. You can sign up on Yahoo! and to answer questions. Sometimes it takes a few days for your answer to be posted because they look for the “best answer”. I believe the websites allow a link to your website, but it may not be in clear view.

14. Social Media

You don’t have to go viral on Facebook for it to work in your favor. If you have friends, simply post something on your regular Facebook about your website with a link. If you overdo it your friends might drop you, so be careful. Don’t post something every day just to post it because you think each link is helping you. It’s not. Post something that your friends might share with their friends. In other words, post something that they will “Like” so that your post is viewed by thousands instead of just a few hundred.

15. More Pages

Once you have created 5 to 10 main pages for a website, and created them using the steps above, you need to grow. Repeat the process with an 11th page, a 12th and so on. Websites with 1000 pages show up more than websites with 10 pages. More than likely someone else has already used your same page title and keywords, so you still need to stand out by following the steps above.

3 Reasons to Keep Blogging and Make Money

Many people make a living by posting multiple times a day for a single blog or multiple different blogs. I’m sure you’re already sick of hearing that because it seems like a waste of time for you right? Well, here are a few things to remember when blogging instead of thinking about making $5000 per month due to your post from last night.

  1. Make Sure You Enjoy It
  2. Just like any career, you should enjoy what you’re doing. If you love to write then keep on writing regardless of the amount of income you’re generating. When you read articles online some are good and some are bad. Be sure to exude passion when writing about your topics or else your visitors will leave your site instead of clicking on a 2nd or 3rd post.

  3. It Takes Time and Results
  4. Your first blog post isn’t going to show up in the search engines any time soon. Build a presence with about 20 blog posts. Then you can start thinking about search engine presence. When you use a platform such as WordPress most of the SEO services are done for you. Simply title your post, write about 300-400 words, enter your keywords and you have a post that Google can pick up based on the words throughout that particular post. Posts about Aruba Vacations will show up for variations of Aruba Vacations.

  5. Size Matters
  6. Size most definitely matters. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. A website or blog with 1000 pages will show up many more times than a website with 5 pages. There are many more variations of words and phrases throughout 1000 pages for search engines to find and rank. That means, you should write and write and write! Don’t forget quality, no one likes a cheap product, service, article or blog. Visitors want information, so give it to them for free and they’ll continue to visit.

Growth is the main goal of blogs and websites. A website that’s updated daily has more chances of showing up than a website that hasn’t been touched in weeks. When the same visitor views multiple pages it tells search engines that visitors like the quality of your content. Try to realize that it’s actually simple and basic to show up in the search engine. Title your pages correctly, write quality content and don’t SPAM! Writing the same work or phrase over and over won’t help you, it will hurt you and the rest of your website.
