Ways to Google Boost Your Web Site
This is why most website owners are confused and they either give up with SEO or simply do not get the expected results.What you will read in this post is SEO advice that works. I have tested this strategy over the years on a number of websites with remarkable results.
Of course there are many other things you can do to help your website achieve better rankings, but the SEO tips presented below will give you a solid and reliable framework that is 100% safe (i.e. without taking any risks of getting a Google Penalty) and above all, it works. In addition to the tips, I have added real examples from two web sites that I’ve been doing SEO work, to help you understand how to apply the guidelines on your own website or blog.
- Make the website about one thing
It can be about other stuff, too, but choose one primary topic that is most essential to your message. This step is important, so you may want to do a little keyword research before choosing a topic.
Mention keywords where they matter most
Include your “one thing” in the site title, domain name, description, tagline, keywords, blog categories, page titles, and page content. If you’re on WordPress, you can change a lot of this in the General Settings or through a plugin like All in One SEO Pack
Link to internal pages on your site.
A lot of content management systems automatically do this, but if yours doesn’t, you’ll want to be intentional about linking to your most important pages directly from your homepage and cross-linking them with each other.
Use a permalink structure that includes keywords
Some sites have “ugly” permalink structures that use numbers to identify pages. Don’t do this. It’s bad for SEO and just doesn’t look good. Use a URL structure that includes text, and make sure you include keywords in your URLs.
Remove anything that slows down your website
Page load times are important, so get rid of any non-essentials that bog down your website. These may including music players, large images, flash graphics, and unnecessary plugins.

- Use keywords in your images.
Include words that reflect your site topic in the image title, description, and alt attributes.
Link to other websites with relevant content
You can do this by including a blogroll, link list, or resources page on your website. Of course, do it sparingly, as each outbound link is a “vote” for another site. However, if you do it well and people click your links, this tells search engines you are a trusted authority on your particular topic.
Update your website frequently
Sites with dynamic content often rank higher than those with static content. That’s why blogs and directories (like Wikipedia) do so well on search engines. They are constantly being updated with new content.
Make sure your website is indexed in search
A lot of search engines will automatically find and index your content, but don’t count on it. You want to be sure engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo are crawling your site, so that people are finding you online.
Have other websites link to you
This is really, really important, when it comes to SEO. The bummer is that it’s not something you can necessarily control. Other than creating excellent content, the only thing you can do is ask (which occasionally works).
My counsel is to spend the time you would trying to convince somebody to link to you on just writing great content. And, start guest posting on other blogs.
