In order to rank high on Google, there are a few things that you absolutely must do. First of all, you should follow the SeekSuccess Content Guidelines, On Page SEO Guidelines, Off Page SEO Guidelines, and Social Media Marketing Guidelines. After following the these guidelines, you are going to want to go through a careful set of steps illustrated below. If you are participating in the SeekSuccess revenue sharing program you will make the most money possible and generate the most traffic to your content if you can follow this guide.
First Steps: Choosing Keywords
The first thing you need to do is carefully choose the right keywords to put in your article or content. I recommend choosing one word, but two will work as well. In order to choose the right keyword you are going to use the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. Enter the captcha and search for a topic of interest. You will notice a number of search results come up with related words. These related words are great because they give you an idea of what might be the best keyword and who is searching for what. You are also going to want to research and make sure you are using exact match. A broad match search shows you Google Adwords broad match traffic and is completely useless for any SEO or ranking whatsoever. Now you will be able to see the competition, global monthly searches, and local monthly searches. If your information only tailors towards US visitors you probably should ignore the global monthly search amount. Now, from this list what you want to do is find keywords with high volume and low competition.
Once you have chosen the keywords you want to use, you are going to want to go to Google and search for it. Pay attention to the number of search results for your search. The lower the number the better. Somewhere less than a million is a good starting point. One thing you will want to look at is your competitors that rank high for that keyword. What are they doing? What other keywords are they also using? You can figure this out by going to their pages and looking at the title, and seeing what keywords are in the title of their pages. Do some research, put in some time to analyze and look at various related keywords. Tweak your Google Adwords search a little bit and see what you can come up with. For fun experiment with the Google Adwords tool and enter “weight loss” for example to see what you can come up with. Be warned that there are a lot of other tools out there that supposedly help with choosing keywords but they are all crap. The Google Adwords Keyword Tool is the only thing that works.
On Page SEO Efforts
Here you are going to want to follow the SeekSuccess On Page SEO Guidelines as mentioned earlier for starters. You should make sure that you put your keywords in your title tag and write about it in your content. If you follow the guidelines that should cover about everything that you need to ensure you maximize your chance of success with on page seo.
Off Page SEO Efforts & Backlink Building
This is the tricky part and should start with the SeekSuccess Off Page SEO Guidelines. The off page seo guidelines give you more general information about what to do to build backlinks. However, I am going to describe to you some very specific ways to get traffic and links going to your articles/content right away. First of all you will want to create an article or content on SeekSuccess. Once you have added your article to SeekSuccess, you can follow the below steps to build backlinks to it, generate traffic to the page, and make money!
- Submit To Article Directories – You are going to want to create accounts on as many online article directories as you can. Go to this article directory link to see what is available. The most popular are Ezinearticles, GoArticles, Squidoo, and Hubpages. Once accounts have been created on these sites, you are going to want to write articles about your original article’s subject, and then link to the article you originally wrote on SeekSuccess.com. This will take some work, but the results can be very significant.
- Blog Comment on Related Blogs – You are going to want to do a search on Google for “article-topic blogs with dofollow comments” or something similar to this. You will be given a list of blogs related to your article topic. You need to make sure the comments you might post at the blogs pass link juice. You can find this information out by inspecting a link and making sure you don’t see “rel=nofollow.” Try to post relevant information or useful and beneficial information on these related blogs. Insert links back to the original article you posted on SeekSuccess. You can also make your profile link back to your original article on SeekSuccess.
- Forum Commenting/Forum Profile Creation – Do the same search as was mentioned before except change it to “article-topic forums with dofollow links” for example. This will give you a list of forums that you can create accounts at and then start writing comments and pointing back to your SeekSuccess article.
- Social Media Marketing – You are going to want to make sure that you follow our Social Media Marketing Guidelines post first of all. From this post you essentially should make sure that you post your content to Facebook, tell your friends about it, and Tweet it to your twitter followers. You should also manually submit a link to Digg and StumbleUpon.
Once you have created your backlinks, it helps if you put them all in an Excel spreadsheet. Once you have done this you should create an account an account on Linklicious and import all of the links you have created into your accout. This service will try and get Google to crawl all of your backlinks so that they count towards your ranking. This process is good because it can sometimes take a while before Google actually recognizes all of your backlinks.
Understanding Google Page Rank
Google Page Rank or “PR” is simply a number between 0 and 10 that Google assigns to every page on the internet. The higher the PR, the more link juice a page will pass via a link. You can do PR checks by going to this website. It is best to have blog comments, articles, and links from the highest PR sites possible.
To really generate traffic you are going to need to reach at least page one on Google. This can take a lot of time, but the results are definitely worth it. If you keep writing articles, and keep submitting content with links to your SeekSuccess content, you will continue to increase the value of your content and the traffic to that webpage should increase as a result. Remember, the more traffic to your page, the more passive income you will make from the SeekSuccess revenue sharing program. If you write enough articles, and work to get the proper backlinks and traffic, then you are sure to make a substantial amount more money on your content than otherwise.
Google Ranking Guidelines Conclusion
The name of the game is backlinks and high quality content. In order to view the number of backlinks you have you should go to backlink watch and enter the page you are interested in. Over time you will notice there should be more links to your page every few days or so. If you want to make serious money from the SeekSuccess revenue sharing program, then I suggest you put as much content onto SeekSuccess as you can, and build as many backlinks as possible to this content. If you manage to rank high in Google and drive traffic to your content, I can assure you that the financial rewards will be well worth it. This process does not happen overnight and there is no set amount of work you need to do to make it work. What I can tell you though is that if you continually build backlinks, write articles, and provide valuable content to SeekSuccess, then you will be making some serious cash if that content hits the number one spot on Google!
