9 Steps to Make Google Fall in Love with your Site

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by DovieKnoll, Sep 21, 2013.

    Recently I came across a very informative article from Wordtracker and got some useful information. To summarize, to get better rankings all this you can do in just nine steps.

    1. Create more content
    "Try to update your content as often as it makes sense to do so"

    2. But don’t duplicate content
    "If there are legitimate reasons for you to duplicate your content (in your heart of hearts, you know if you’re being naughty or nice), you might want to deploy a redirect or a canonical tag In fact, if you have duplicate content you should."

    3. Make your site speedy
    Site speed is also becoming an increasingly important ranking factor so keep yours up to scratch

    4. You can also adjust the crawl frequency in Google Webmaster Tools.
    Several configurations are recommended in the article.

    5. Add a sitemap
    Important in having all your links in one place.
    SEMrush
    6. Make sure your server is working as it should.
    See how many of your site's pages have been crawled by Google and Bing

    7. Check your server responses
    Check your server responses by running a site audit in the Keywords tool

    8. Get links
    As well as improving your rank, bringing in more traffic and generally being awesome, links potentially get your website crawled more quickly.

    9. Know your crawl rate
    You want Google to crawl as much of your site as often as possible. So to find out, log into Webmaster Tools.

    Consider it as an additional step, probably this will help.

    There should be proper error handling in the site. Create a 404 page for you blog/website and provide some relevant links so that the user can easily navigate to other parts of the blog. Also, try to fix broken links. You can download broken link checker wordpress plugin and quickly find all the broken links on your site.

    Moreover, making contextual links, adding meta tags and using the ping services will definitely be a major add-on.

    Great additions, those can easily be done if the website is wordpress based.

    Thanks, that just made me smile :)
    Legit advice, OP, but a bit too much emphasis on crawl rate to my taste. I'd say, just build a great website and they (search engine bots) will come.
    What eventually leads to higher search ranking in my experience is:
    - providing content that solves the visitor's problem
    - viral content
    - free stuff
    -games and entertaining stuff
    - great deal/bargain + great user experience
