Top 8 ways to improve your blog ranking in search engine result pages optimize your blog pages to raise Google page rank
If you are a blogger and if you want to improve blog ranking in search engines then it becomes necessary to write unique quality content based on the niche.
Writing quality content isn’t enough to drive traffic and it needs to optimize for Google-friendly keyword-rich articles. Keyword Rich doesn’t mean for Keyword stuffing.
Google will look for quality articles rather than the number of articles because I had seen some articles written since long years back was still ranking number one in Google search. It is really awesome to retain the same place for a long time, but while trying to find the fact behind this success is quality.
Content is not all about text
Quality content in the article is not meant only for text characters but it includes images and videos that empower and enrich the content to the visitors. It is often determined by the way how well you express the thoughts in your articles?
For Eg: If you write an article for a product, then you must post an image depicting the product which will add more value to your content. Also adding supporting portfolio videos related to the product adds more value to your article.
In recent days, Google is well trained to read the content in the images we added in the article and they are constantly making changes in their algorithm to give more value to the articles with images and videos.
Often you may hear this word Keyword and many people saying it is dying and has less value but they are wrong. It still plays a crucial role in blog rankings. Keywords are still important in articles you are writing.
Obviously, if your article was related to “Dogs food” then, but if you look to gain page views for “Pet Care” then probably you won’t.
What Google actually says about keywords is, their algorithm is coded to assign the keyword by themselves related to the articles. Also, they are not omitting the Keyword Meta Tags but they consider them in ranking articles.
So you are having contents and supporting pictures but without organizing their locations and in sequence, you won’t get an increase in page rank.
Spend a lot of time organizing your content in such a way it should deliver the flow of ideas with proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Also, give importance to important contents at the beginning and arrange them in that sequence.
Each page mush has an H1 tag, which should represent Page Title or page header and H2 tags for paragraph heading, and H3 tags for sub-paragraph headings. Split your contents into paragraphs and give suitable titles with header tag attributes. Add suitable images for those paragraphs.
Search engines usually like lengthy articles that describe an idea more clearly. An SEO rule of thumb for increased page views and rankings are longer posts with greater ideas.
the SEO gurus advised of having around 1500 – 2500 words in articles are well for optimal page ranking.
Still do not stick to writing articles of 500 – 800 words because it brings you fewer page rankings.
Value and Quality
The content that describes your idea and recommendation on whatever niche should be valuable to your visitors and it must be quality. Imagine if you go out to dine with your family at a nearby restaurant in your native.
The restaurant where you are now was well cleaned, friendly environment, and has reasonably priced foods that are well in taste and delicious. SO probably you might revisit the restaurant often.
Now imagine another restaurant that is not well maintained, unhygienic. Places with bad odor etc., so what you do? Might often think to leave that as soon as possible and won’t come back to that restaurant at all.
This strategy exactly fits your website and the first example is the thing that people and Google are seeking for. If you concentrate on writing new, creative content it pulls readers to stay longer in your pages and you will often get credits by social sharing and in the term, Google will rank you much better.
Google takes into account presentation, original unique content, social media signals, and visitor interactions as a key for ranking a website.
Faster makes better
It indirectly supports your web page to rank better yet it plays a crucial role in blog ranking. Want to know why?
Your Unique, quality, creative content does not hold value if your web page takes 2minutes and 52seconds to load (fetching, rendering, and displaying the content). People feel annoying for waiting to see your presentation and Google does so, hence resulting in a lower ranking.
Remember to code your pages properly, sequential, light weighed to make your page fully functional. Make page load time fewer than 10ms. Constantly fix things those delays in rendering your webpage from the server by using the Google Page Speed Insights tool.
Linking and BackLinks
Linking is the art of adding links(reference) to other relative contents for those similar keywords in the article or similar topic about the article. Linking may be Internal linking and external linking. Create a strong internal link structure and sometimes point to an external reference such as Wikipedia. Maintain 4 – 5 combined internal and external links in your articles.
Backlinking is a link that points to your webpage from other sites which adds more reputation to your web pages.
You can have control over linking structure either internal or external, but backlinking is purely out of your control and you should be cautious in those sites that give links to your blog or website. Because it is having a crucial role in making or breaking a site and it depends on the site the links are from.
Write articles and post on article sites, guest posting, article commenting, forum participation are the best ways to get reputed quality backlinks to a website that adds more value in ranking a website or blog.
Over 76% of internet users were accessing the internet via their mobile phones, tablets, Ipads, a recent study reported. So, you must concentrate on designing a webpage that fits different screen sizes; create a fluid design layout to show your contents clearly.
Design your blog with CMS software such as WordPress, or with bootstrap mobile-first layout design. The fluid layout does not mean to design but need to consider speed as well. So, concentrate on page loading time also.
