GOOGLE RANKING

You might already know that Google uses over 200 ranking factors in their algorithm for Google Ranking
But what the heck are they?
Well, you’re in for a treat because I’ve put together a complete list.
Some are proven.
Some are controversial.
Others are SEO nerd speculation.
But they’re all here.
And I recently updated this entire list for 2020.
Let’s dive right into Google Ranking.

Nothing is more frustrating than seeing your website rank on the umpteenth page of Google, despite your continued efforts to climb the ranks.
I know this because I’ve been there many times.

Sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, nothing works. Google seems to hate your website, and you have no idea why.

If that sounds all too familiar, then you’re in the right place.

Here’s how to rank higher on Google:

Find underperforming keywords
Pick a keyword to rank higher for
Figure out why you’re being outranked
Beat the other pages where it matters
Track rankings
Repeat for other keywords

Most SEOs preach finding your page two rankings, then trying to push them to page one.

That seems logical, but there are two reasons why this isn’t a great idea:

  1. It’s not always easy to improve rankings by 10+ spots.
  2. Merely ranking on page 1 shouldn’t be your goal if you want more traffic.

That first point should be pretty self-explanatory. Think of it like this:

It’s easier to win the match from two goals behind than it is from ten behind.

Every keyword in this filtered report is one for which you already rank, but not in pole position. That means there’s still room for improvement.

The next step is to skim this list for keywords that you most want to improve rankings for.

Having said that, there’s no point chasing rankings for low-value keywords, or those that are likely to be difficult work. So here are a few things to look for to identify the best candidates.
