SEO For Beginners: 3 Powerful SEO Tips to Rank.mp4
Do you want to rate number one on Google. Well I hate to say it. It’s actually really hard. Ten years ago it used to be really easy but now it’s hard. And you know what unless you watch this whole video you’re not going to be able to rake number one on Google. Hey everyone.
I’m Neil Patel, And today I’m going to share with you three ways you can make number one on Google today. I got started SEO when I was 16 years old. I created a website called advice monkey. It no longer exists. If you search for it you’re not going to see my website. It was a replication and a shitty replication of Monster dot com. And when I created the website I thought Oh cool. This is it. People are going to come to my site and I’m going to get traffic. But you know what. I popped up the website and no one came to it from that point. I realized there was something called SEO that I had to do.
I paid a few marketing firms to help me with search engine optimization so that way I can wait. No one on Google for terms like job search. But you know what. I gave them money and I got no results. Eventually as a 16 year ok, I lost all my money. You only can make so much money clean restrooms and picking up trash. So I had to learn it. But when I first started it was as simple as putting the keywords on your website and you could rank. I wish it was that easy these days.
Number one focus on content. See Google has this update called Hummingbird and with hummingbird what they decided to do is websites who just have content everything won’t do as well as websites and focus on one single niche and are super thorough. For example let’s say you have a website around dating. If you have a website around dating and your article is let’s say talking about five ways you can land a date or five ways you can land your dream date.
If you end up breaking down hey go to Match.com. Sign up and you’ll find a match after you create a profile you’re not going to do that well. But if you write an article that breaks down how to create a profile on Match.com the ideal picture they deal description how to be funny how do even maybe add video. I don’t know I haven’t been on these dating sites in ages but if you go really in-depth and you break down every little thing that they should do and then after you break down Match.com you then talk about Tinder. Then talk about Bumble you then talk about eHarmony all the other platforms you then even discuss how you should respond to people and engage with them.
Should you be hitting people up. What’s the first thing you should say to them. How she respond. Where should you go for your first date right. How to cure you from your first date and ask him on a second date. But if you’re super Thurl and your content is so amazing that people are like huh. Wow I read this article. I don’t have any more questions and I know what to do next. That’s how thorough you need to be.
So poke holes in your content and as many holes as you can and fill them all up so then that way. People are like this is that and all site that you should end up reading if you’re interested in dating online. Actually what’s funny, I wish dating was this easy when I was younger I couldn’t just swipe out like Tinder and find the next match sitting next to my buddy Terry the other day and he kept swiping on tended.
He’s like Check this out. Swipe in Snatch swipe in civic 30 plus matches within a few minutes. But back in my days you would have to go to a bar and meet people and actually talk to them. All right. So now that we got that way let’s go into the second tip if you want to rank number one on Google.
The second tip I have for you is optimize your title tag and your method description. Have you ever done a google search and noticed that every time you do it there is this link at the top. And then there’s this one sentence with the link at the top. It’s called the title tag and the description below is called a better description. Now think of it this way if you search for the phrase online dating and you don’t see the word online dating either the title or the description.
Are you going to click on the result. Well if you are there’s something wrong because why would you click on a resolve that isn’t related to what you’re looking for In addition to that have you ever done a search for a term like online dating and have you ever noticed that the word isn’t in the Tyler description. That’s because Google tracks who’s clicking on what listing and they’ve learned that when a keyword is in the listing that same keyword that you’re searching for they know you’re way more likely to click through. So in your title tag and your better description make sure you include the keyword. But you can’t just include the keyword like online dating right.
The easiest way what I would do and I wish it was this simple Oh just for online dating. Online dating online dating online dating. If I could put it 20 times so people would know that the articles on online dating. I wish I’d get more clicks but it’s not that simple. Yes you have to include the keyword in your title and your description but it has to be appealing if it doesn’t flow in a sentence. It’s not easy to read and it’s not appealing or evoking curiosity. No one is going to click through.
The third thing I have for you is to use Google Search console. Did you know that Google gives you a tool that teaches you how to rank number one on Google. Yes I know that sounds ridiculous but it is true and it’s called Google Search console. If you’re not already a user of it sign up. It doesn’t cost a dollar.
You’re missing out if you’re not using it. I can’t emphasize that. Not so now that using Google search console. Give it a few days because it takes them time to populate data. You’ll see a screen that shows search analytics. And this shows you all the pages on your website that are getting your traffic. But the cool thing about Google Search console is they also show you which articles are getting impressions. And here’s what I mean by impressions. You know when you do a search on Google you don’t always click through on a result. Right. If you did then you’d be clicking through on 10 results every time you did a search. That would be insane.
What Google shows is how many people are seeing your listing and clicking through and how many people don’t click through. So they show you how many impressions you’re getting the clicks and the click the rate and what you’ll find is in general. You’re lucky if you’re getting around a 5 percent click the rate sometimes 10 15 but in most cases most of your pages are going to be getting less than 5 percent click the rate. Now the cool part about Google Search consoles they show you all the keywords that you’re getting impressions for and all the ones you’re getting clicks for.
Now remember the first tip was about content thoroughness and you want to article that talks about everything under the sun. Well you can use Google Search console to tie it back to the first tip. So kind of number 1 and 3 are related in which you want to take all the keywords you’re getting impressions for and start adding them to your copy.
Now don’t just shove them in and have your content be keyword rich where you know someone reads it and all it is is online dating. Tinder eHarmony dating online. Meeting someone from online dating right. If someone was reading your article and it sounded just like that they’re going to bounce off your site because that means your content sucks and it just has too many keywords that has to flow naturally be educational. So you want to take those keywords that you’re seeing in Google search console and Adam to the article. Now we have an article on Instagram and it teaches you how to get over 300 targeted Instagram followers per day.
That article is around 10000 words when I first wrote that article. It wasn’t 10000 words there’s roughly two thousand five hundred. I went to Google Search console I saw all the people that are searching for terms relate to the article I added them within that article I made it more thorough. And you know what my traffic more than tripled to that article. Yes it is that simple. And when I made that change it didn’t happen right away but I noticed the results within 50 days.
That’s not a long time, So now let’s recap on the tips. 1. Make your content super thorough 2. Make sure you include the keywords within your title tag and method description but also when you’re doing your title and description make sure you’re evoking curiosity you’re creating amazing title that everyone wants to read and click through.And number 3. Use the free tool that Google gives you that will help you rate. Number one. That’s Google Search console. Use those three things and you can rank number one. Not just in the future but also right now.
Now that you’ve learned these three tips I challenge you in which I want you to take these tactics and implement them. And then after you implement them and the next 45 days I want you to leave a comment with your results. Because if you’re not doing well that means I’m not happy and I know these tactics work and that’s why I’m telling you. Because if you implement them you’re gonna see results and you would be ecstatic and your life is going to change. And I want to build a community of like minded people.
We all take action and we help each other grow. So I challenge you to take action and implement these three steps. Now granted I know you may be busy and you may not be able to do all that right away but just pick one. It doesn’t have to be time consuming. Pick one of them.
