So you want to reach the first position on Google?
This is how I can help you get to the top.
How to get to the top of Google instantly
The easiest way, and the ONLY way to be at the top of Google IMMEDIATELY is to run successful Google Ads.
That’s a sure fire way to rocket past your competition and sit comfortably on the Number One throne.
Of course, it takes money to get there and it’ll take money to keep you there. If you find yourself in a competitive niche you’ll need quite a large bank account to stay at the top.
I know you were looking for a free or cheap fix, but the reality is, the top spot on Google is determined by the one with the most cash.
The problem with instant ranking
Here’s what you must keep in mind with Google Ads and instantly ranking top spot.
The moment you switch off your ads, your ranking tanks.
Your position at the top is based SOLELY on the amount of money you’re willing to pay.
That’s why my solution makes more sense.
But let’s first look at what you mustn’t do to increase rankings.
How NOT to rank higher in Google
What are you to do if you can’t afford to run Google Ads?
Here’s a solution: buy an article spinner, get someone to write you a cheap $5 article and run that article through the article spinner.
Then pump your website full of spun articles.
All in all you’re looking at spending maybe a few hundred dollars.
But it’s a great idea, right?
See, if you take this route, you’re doing Google a favour. But you’re also doing those of us serious about long term online marketers success a favour.
But it’s not a favour that’ll put you in good standing with Google. In other words, Google won’t pat you on the back for being a marketing star.
Google has a thriving anti-spam team always on the lookout for the latest search engine marketing schemes and scams.
When you spin articles you’re arguably creating some of the worst content on the web.
It might work for a while, but if and when Google jumps you for your questionable practices you’ll pay a price far greater than the few hundred dollars you paid for your DIY hack.
It’s a terrible way to boost your search engine rankings.
It seems like a good idea but you’ll do people like us, who take the longer, better route, a favour by making it easier for us to rank when your junk is eventually downgraded or removed from Google.
How to rank higher in Google without paying for ads
Here’s a completely free and legal solution to your ranking woes: add quality content to your website, and do it consistently.
That’s the only way to naturally rank higher in Google without paying and without invoking the wrath of the Search Kings.
But sometimes doing is easier than saying.
Perhaps you look at creating content and think you’d be better off living with rabies.
Maybe you’re one of those people who think writing anything more than a single line on WhatsApp is akin to climbing Mt Everest while being beaten with chainsaws.
But the reality is, if you want to rank higher, you’ll need good content.
If you can’t create it yourself you’ll need to get someone to do it for you.
Part of my game is creating quality content to help people like you rank higher in Google.
Why this is a great solution
Although this solution doesn’t guarantee immediate success and takes time and commitment, there’s one thing that makes it stand out far above paid advertising.
It has incredible long term value.
A well written blog post has YEARS of life. Literally, YEARS.
A Facebook post has a five hour lifespan. It can’t begin to compete with a proper website article.
How to know if you’re ranking better
The only way to know if you’re actually climbing to the top of Google is to have access to metrics.
I install Google Analytics to all my clients’ websites. And since it’s your website you’re welcome to access it whenever you wish.
But you also get an analytics report that sends out a weekly email containing metrics like who landed on your website, where they’re from and which pages they used.
This’ll give you a great picture of your traffic and whether you’re excelling at moving to the top.
The search function
This ties in with your metrics.
Sometimes you think you want to rank high for a specific search phrase, but you’re interrupted in your journey to the top by a marketing insight that shows you should be aiming to rank for something else.
I build all my client’s websites with a search box that records what people search for when they use it.
It’s a great way to see what the market actually wants.
So if you’re trying to make your way to the top for keyword X and you notice people searching for keyword A on your site, you can adjust your ranking game and maybe even reach the top of Google quicker and easier.
How to stay at the top of Google
To stay at the top of Google takes hard work.
You can’t write one masterpiece, sit back and revel in the ranking glory.
It won’t be long before someone comes along with better content and kicks you off your throne.
You can prevent this by consistently working from a content calendar.
In other words, if you have the time, sit down and create an editorial calendar for content related to your niche.
Rigidly sticking to your editorial calendar, start adding quality content. And don’t stop.
And when an idea pops into your head for something you could be creating content about, add it to your calendar without skipping the other content.
That’s the only way to consistently rank at the top of Google for a variety of searches.
How long does it take?
How long is a piece of blue?
Sometimes you’ll see results almost immediately, other times it might take months or years before you start seeing favourable results.
You’ll find online marketing success in this formula: be an expert; sound like an expert; repeat.
If you want people to trust you, make them see you’re an expert in your field.
