And since there are many other things which Google consider before ranking websites in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages).
Link building is only one of the ranking factors in Google and a very minute one.
I would say that this post is for those who are just content writers or are not good at building links to their sites or mostly don’t get time for building backlinks or doesn’t know how to go about with it.
Now take a look at this Google ranking factors compiled by Moz.
I will explain each and every factor that has helped me to get more traffic to my blog and also help me make my website appear first in google search.
You don’t need to be an expert to do the things I explained in this post.
Let’s ride on…
1. Look for keywords with high search Volume and Zero or Low competition
Finding keywords is a process I call Brainstorming. It’s a tedious process.
But there are many sites and platforms where you can look for desired keywords like Google Keyword Planner or Google trends Etc.
I use Keywordtool.io to get the best keywords for my blog. The best thing you can do while looking for the keywords is to look for those keywords which have very low competition and high search volume.
But I would prefer you to choose a keyword which is often searched by people but has very less or no articles or post or any other information available on the internet about it.
Then when you wrote a post with a proper on-page optimization then the Google’s algorithm will surely rank it. I use these kinds of keywords because these types of keywords require very less or no link building at all.
You can also take some extra help in Brainstorming using software like SEO power suite or Buzzsumo. These software’s are a big help. Mainly Buzzsumo will help you to find out the articles, a number of shares and links pointing to a competitor site using the same keyword.
Once you have got an overview of the keywords, then you are ready to make it to the Google’s first page.
2. Use Keyword Density with latent semantic indexing (LSI)
You must have heard that content is the king. Unique and good content no doubt ranks well, but besides that, one need to do On-Page optimization perfectly if you want to rank on Google without backlinks.
Then your article or post must have an ideal keyword density. The density of the keywords must be appropriate; it must not be less or more than enough.
On average, a goof keyword density is 1.5% to 3% of the actual post content
Note that if you use a certain focus keyword many times, instead of making it minimal, then Google will surely put your article or post on the list of spammers.
But to overcome this problem you can use the LSI (latent semantic indexing).
What does Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) technique mean? I’ll explain!
In this technique, we use synonyms of keywords kr related keywords or phrases to avoid spamming.
I would rather say that Google also rank those sites which use LSI for their articles.
In my forthcoming post, I’ll explain more about LSI and how to use it effectively.
3. Use a unique and good Title Structure
A title in any post or article plays an important role in better ranking on Google. So, make sure your own title for your post is unique instead of copying from any other blogs or articles on the internet.
Because copying an article will never get you to the top of the Google SERPs rather it will outrank your blog or website.
And also, make sure to place the keyword in the title. Make the focus keyword the first or second word in the blog title if possible.
There are some websites which can help you to get an attractive and unique title for your post or article.
Some examples of such websites are:
Sometimes, I always used SEO Pressor for getting a Blog title for the keyword before writing a post. But you can use all three for getting an awesome blog Title for your post.
4. Try to use Long-Tail Keywords
As a newbie, using of long tail keywords will surely get you more exposure. When you search on Google a word, the rest of the sentence appear up automatically thus giving us suggestions for our search query. When we search for any query, Google firstly searches for the exact keywords available on the websites, then result appears up.
And if it doesn’t find the exact keyword in the data then it looks for the Title of the page. That means if you are using a long tail keyword then there are more chances to rank high without backlinks or with very few backlinks.
5. Try to be the First to write about the keyword
Each day new information and new updates appear on the internet. People are searching for something new which no blog post or no webmaster has written the same, and that can be your chance to rank on Google first page without backlinks.
So, even this process involves Brainstorming for getting those keywords which have no competition and high search volume.
This is one of the best technique for getting on the first page of google without backlinks. You can just write a topic about something which no blogger has written or shared before. Be first to write, be first to publish and be on the top.
Note that it’s better to rank on first page for a keyword with 10 search volume than to be in page 15 of Google for a keyword of 1000 search volume!
Another thing, don’t write a 300 words blog post or un-optimized article for the same because it will not stay on the SERPs for a long time or the chances are article may not appear up in the search results.
Instead, write an awesome article with perfect On-Page optimization, so that your post may last longer on the Google SERPs.
Write a long detailed article which is informative to the readers and the search engines.
6. Use of Google Trends
Yes, explore the power of Google with Google trends. You can write on the topics which are trending on the internet.
You can also search to set trends for the particular keywords. It is one of the secret weapons of many bloggers on the internet.
They look for trending post online and make their own unique and similar post with the same keywords.
But the truth with this technique is that, your blog post might not be evergreen (last-long).
7. Use Google Alerts for New Information.
I use Google alerts to get latest news and information in my field. You can get the alerts for any niche for which you are writing. You can create an alert from suggestion list or use a keyword you like.
After creating an alert, you will start getting emails from the Google alert with latest trending topics or subjects on the internet
8. Website Security
Your website is your brand kr your online address; this is the primary step to connect with your customers.
Therefore , if it’s not safe and secure, then your customers won’t visit your site. Threats can come in many forms it may steal customers information, like name, credit card detail and other transaction information, or can crash your website.
To avoid being a victim og any cyber attack, make sure you install SSL Certificate on your website.
SSL will secure all your data transmitted over the internet between your computer and server.
To get more visitors to your site, it’s security plays an important role and as per the google update “Google give a Ranking Boost to Secure HTTPS/SSL Site.
Let me just tell you that I’ve using these tools and techniques and strategies for years, and these tools have helped me to achieve more organic traffic to my blog and my clients websites.
