5 Tips To Rank On Page 1 Of Google

1. Pick a good keyword to focus on.

If you’re an accountant, it’s a good idea to find what most people are searching for. Is it “best accountant near me” or “accountants {suburb}”?

The easiest way to do this is to set up a Google Ads account and use the Google Keyword Planner. It’s 100% free and allows you to see the number of searches a term gets each month.

For example, “financial planner Brisbane” gets up to 1000 searches per month. 1000 extra eyes could change someone’s business.

2. Research the competition.

Now you know what keyword to focus on, it’s time to spy on your competition. Open an incognito browser (so Google doesn’t show you results based on your history) and search this term.

Go through the top 3-5 websites and see what they’re doing well and what they can improve on.

Chances are, very few of them have blogs. This leads to my next point.

3. Write the best content.

Start writing articles/blogs around your keyword. For example, “How To Choose The Best Financial Planner In Brisbane” or “Top 5 Secrets Your Financial Planner Won’t Tell You” etc.

Insert your keyword into your article a couple of times and repeat the process for a handful of articles.

Google will start to see your website is centered around financial planners in Brisbane and slowly slide you up the rankings.

4. Put the keyword in your page title.

Your website has a name or tag line called a page title. Insert your keyword into your page title. Google will crawl your website and see this as the topic of your content.

For example, if your competitors’ page title is “Golds Wealth – Grow Your Investment Egg” and yours is “Sunset Finance – Financial Planners In Brisbane”, Google knows yours is more relevant and will place you higher on the search results.

5. Get external links

External links, commonly known as backlinks are links from other websites to yours. Google relies heavily on these to determine how good a website is. A backlink is similar to vote. Each backlink is a vote from someone else that you’re important and worth listening to.

 

The more votes you have, the more important you appear to Google.

An easy way to get more backlinks is to comment on other peoples blog posts and give your website address when asked by the page. 10 of these a day gives 70 extra links per week.

You can also write articles for other large websites such as Medium.com or a website in your area of expertise. Guest posts are favored by Google and help you advertise yourself across other people’s platforms.

Follow these 5 tips and you’ll get a head start on your competition. This alone won’t get you to number 1 in a highly competitive niche, but it will give you boost you need to get more business.
