How Do I Increase My SEO Ranking?
Do you ever wonder how SEO pros get results for their clients? As a business owner, you’re not alone. On this page, we want to show you what it takes to achieve higher rankings. We’re not giving everything away, but you will learn about SEO accomplishes behind the scenes.
According to these three industry leaders, it’s all about content, links, and technical SEO:
- It’s Content and It’s Links – Are We Making SEO Too Complicated?
- What’s More Important: Technical SEO, Content Marketing or Link Building?
- Technical SEO vs content marketing: Which should SEOs focus on?
Content, links, and technical SEO form a powerful hierarchy of process execution that allows you to achieve higher rankings. It is this collection of techniques that will further your efforts to hit the top spot on Google. It’s no trade secret, however. The power lies in how these pillars of SEO are executed. We’re not about to spill the beans on that, though!
It is, however, content that helps people understand the services you offer, along with who you are as a company. Your content is the public face of your business online. People will make judgments based on how well your content is written, its tone, and how they feel after reading it. Content marketing, while focused on writing, also integrates SEO with its appearance aspects. Design, format, and how words appear all play into how well your content is received.
Links tell Google how popular your site is on the Web and how your site fits into the overall online ecosystem. In the olden days of SEO, links were built rather than earned. They were used artificially to increase the authority of your website. Nowadays, if you want to achieve a purely white-hat link profile, links must be earned through exceptional content. By taking advantage of content marketing and link earning, you achieve the quantity and quality of links that will drive your rankings.
The activities involved in technical SEO result in an easily-crawled website. The goal of performing technical SEO is quite clear. As Gary Illyes from Google has said: “Make that damn site crawlable.” Technical SEO is used to increase crawlability, improve indexability, and ensure that any technical issues are kept to a minimum. As these three ingredients of the SEO recipe are mixed together, you can expect to see an increase in results.
Experience Hennessey Digital Performance
Building a dynamic Web presence that drives results takes time. Google wants to see websites that are all about building a long-term relationship with search engines. These sites must also have a trustworthy reputation. In the latest SEO terms, E-A-T (expertise, authority, and trust) all play a role. You create your expertise through writing exceptional on-site content. Then, links are acquired and your authority increases. As you execute techniques in line with Google’s Webmaster Guidelines, Google begins to trust you more. As this trust improves, so will your results. As this improvement occurs, you will begin to see your rankings and traffic increase. This process is repeated ad nauseam until your site achieves the higher rankings it deserves.
The performance we speak of often happens to our clients in this manner. It’s a steady climb to number one, after months of hard work writing content, acquiring links, and working on the site’s SEO. As we mentioned previously, we’re not letting go of that secret sauce!
