5 Ways to Carve Out a Top Spot in Google Search Results

Everyone wants their website to be on the first page of Google’s search results pages (SERPs). Since 95% of all clicks are made on the first page, it makes sense. Knowing this doesn’t really help you, though. What you really need to know is how to get your site ranked on the first page of Google’s search results for as many keywords as possible that your customers use.

Of course not! That would give their users a poor experience.

And think about this from your prospective customer’s perspective.  If your prospect reads outdated information on your website, then are they going to have more or less trust in doing business with you?

Less!  Your website is most likely giving your first impression and you don’t want to start out on the wrong foot.

For these reasons, it’s important to keep your website up-to-date.  Plus, I strongly recommend adding a blog and posting frequently because each new article gives you an additional opportunity to be found online.  Think of blogging like a spider spinning a web. The more blog posts you publish, the bigger your “web” to catch prospects searching and surfing online.

Start Carving Out a Top Spot on Google Search Results

Do keyword research, optimize your site, reach out on other sites, and stay active on your site, so you can increase your rankings for your most searched keyword phrases. As you work on it, you’ll start to see that it is possible to please Google and its users with your website, which means more traffic and of course, business.
