Google is the No.1 Search Engine without any doubt, but are you spending time to increase your search ranking on Google?  In my experience, many blogs get 75%+ of their niche traffic from Google Organic Search.  This is critical to understand how to maximize and get the most of it.  Here are some easy ways to increase your Google search ranking:

Page Rank

Page Rank plays a very important role on Google’s search ranking. Start by checking your website page rank on  You need to take care of your Page Rank.  By achieving a minimum of Page Rank (PR) 3, you’ll be ahead of most sites.  As a point of reference is a PR4 site.  The following will help with page rank.

Quality Content

Write quality and unique content.  Don’t try to write for the search engine; instead write for your readers.  By mixing good content with good keywords and images – good organic results will follow.  Try to write lengthy,  minimum 400+ word articles.

Quality Back links

When you receive a back links you get the benefit of more traffic from that link as well as a better search ranking.  Try to get quality back links from industry leading sites that have a high PR.  Blog commenting and guest posting are just 2 ways support this approach.   You must be living under a rock if you haven’t realized that this website encourages everyone to write a guest post and will help you leverage its PR4.

Do Keyword Research 

Keyword Research is very important to get a steady stream of traffic from Google.  Focus your attention on the long tail – that is low competition keywords.  I stick to keywords that related to my niche using Google keyword Tool.

Use On-Page SEO

On page SEO is the process of optimizing the content of your website. This includes the text, images and links on your website. Use below tips to write Search engine friendly articles.

  • Use H1,H2,H3 tags
  • Your main keyword must be placed in the title tag 2 times
  • Your main keyword must be placed in your meta description 2 times
  • Your main keyword phrase must appear in the in H1, H2 and H3 Tags
  • Italic, bold your main keywords (but don’t go crazy)
  • Use alt tags for images
  • Write lengthy article

 Submit Your Sitemap 

Create a site map that tells people where everything is on your site.  Use Google Webmaster tools to submit your sitemap to Google. WordPress users are able to use a simple WordPress plugin that called as “Google XML sitemaps.”

Blog Promotion

Promotion is very important to attract traffic to your blog.  I prefer to focus on article marketing. Article Marketing works well to  boost Google search ranking fast for me.  Here are a couple of last tips to promote your blog:

  • Write Articles On Article Directories
  • Submit Your Articles To Social Bookmarking Sites
  • Comment On Do follow blog in Your Niche
  • Join Forum Discussions

Right on, let’s keep in mind the basics. I’d say if we truly follow these steps, everything we hoped for will come naturally.

I might disagree with you little bit on the value or pagerank. I think this is a metric that is slowly decreasing in value in the eyes of Google. There are many sites that do game the system for just high page rank and have little value.

But regardless of the slight disagreement everything else is absolutely right. All of the steps going to be essential increasing your Google search ranking. The key word that you use a few times is QUALITY.

if your goal is to create valuable site that the readers of Google will find what they’re looking for and enjoy in your online with Google desires and sooner or later this will help to get your articles and/or post found.

sai krishna, excellent article and I do agree that quality contnets and backlinks can really change the SERP fast.

Kay Elisabet December 14, 2011 at 8:48 am

Article marketing is a great way to build backlinks, especially if you produce a good article, because people will use it on their blogs and link back to you.

At the end of the day, I think it all comes back to quality content.

Jym December 14, 2011 at 9:49 am

Cool tips, great overview.

I tend to agree, although as Steve pointed out PR is becoming less critical.

As Google gets more ‘intelligent’ and better at discerning what users actually want, the emphasis is increasingly upon quality, relevant content for our readers and target markets.

Work out how to deliver that, a little SEOing on the side and anything is possible…

Hi Sai,
For me, quality content is what’s keeping me from coming back to my favorite blog sites. It would be a waste of time to go to sites that do not provide you with useful information. I agree with you that blog promotion is very important for one’s online exposure. Commenting on do follow sites related to your niche is an easy and free way to gain more traffic. Thanks for sharing!
