10 SEO ranking factors to consider
I hope you ready to read this article because its takes a lot of diligent to get success in blogging.
#1 Increase your website or blog speed
I have seen many people overlook this factor but now Google has taken it more serious, so i advise you check and fix yours. Google confirmed page speed to have an impact on rank in 2010 for the first time and in 2018 for the second time.
#2 Enable HTTPS connections
Before all this happened website or blogs do use http and they do fine but now Google says un secured sites harm its visitors so implementing HTTPS is the only way to run away from Google putting other HTTPS website or blog before yours.
#3 Optimize your mobile View
Mobile view is now part of Google ranking factor, Google’s mobile-first index is now a reality, which means it’s drawing its results from mobile- optimized sites first, rather than sites geared to desktop computers. If your site isn’t mobile- optimized you risk being out in the cold, in SEO terms at least.
#4 Reduce Bounce rate
Reducing your bounce rate helps to boost your conversion rate. Once you understand that conversion architecture, you can develop a clear content strategy that will grow your business.
#5 User Friendly site
Usability, or User Experience, is the art of making your website simple, user-friendly and easy to use. Understanding your customer’s online behavior gives you insight into what works and what doesn’t.
#6 Long Tail Keyword
This is a very important factor for all website or blog owners, i have written a tutorial on Keyword research, so Long tail keyword shouldn’t be a new thing to you i guess. using a long tail keyword protects and make you stand out on Google. As said in our keyword guide Google’s search algorithm depends on keywords.
#7 Optimize content for Google Snippet
Featured snippets are selected search results that are featured on top of Google’s organic results below the ads in a box.
#8 Building Backlinks
If you haven’t read any backlink tutorials you might not understand what am saying here.
Google uses inbound links as one way to help determine how authoritative and relevant your content is.
#9 Business Information
This tip is important for businesses targeting particular local areas. The presence or absence of business information is one of the most crucial local SEO ranking factors.
#10 Domain Age and Authority
Let me explain all below
If you know Matt Cutt then you should have heard this statement “The difference between a domain that’s six months old versus one year old is really not that big at all.”, what matt is trying to help us here is they take domain age as a ranking factor but not really important.
Your URL building authority matters alot in SEO and there are two authorities to consider when working on Authority which are
Moz has divided this into page authority and domain authority scores, both ranked from 0 to 100, which tell you how likely a particular page or domain is to rank in search results.
