How to improve website traffic SEO? Due to the fact that I don’t know what your actions are in terms of SEO, I can not say wether or not this article will help you. Nonethelss, with this post, I hope to give an idea on something that could be done in an attempt to raise a site’s ranking in Google.
SEO is a subject that can be important when a person decides to drive traffic to his/her website from the search engines. Being positionned on the second, third or fourth page for example is not the best place for a website. In fact, the goal, as I understand it is to be among the top 3 on the first page of Google. Yes, there is also yahoo and Bing that are aslo search engines, but in this article and on this site, I am more focused on Google when I talk about search engine optimization. Additionally, compared to some other ways that could be employed to drive visitors to a site, SEO appears to be more passive than blog commenting or guest blogging for instance.
While in general we might not know the exact algorithm that Google uses, there are still tips that have been given and that seem to work as far as I can say. In this post, there is one action that is not necessarily advertised by other people that I would like to share.Please note that I am not an expert.
Based on my own experience, if you have a site that is not performing the way you want, here is an element that you could check in order to try to bring your site up in the rankings.
Are you keyword stuffing?
Some people might tell you that you need to repeat more than twice a keyword on a page. Even right now, this is a belief that I would like to get rid of. In fact, I have remarked that after removing some instances of a keyword I was trying to rank for, I have observed an increase in ranking. I can’t say for sure that the higher posistion of my site in Google was due to the previous action. However, I have chatted with an SEO person and he was ranked on the top 3 for a keyword that appeared only once on his page in an h1 tag.
This is something that one could try, remove instances of the keyword in an article that are besides the h1 tagged keyword and the keyword in the first sentence of the page you are trying to rank for. If you see a better ranking from this, try to remove also the keyword that appears in the first sentence of your article. Note that I am not saying that you should remove instances of the keyword that are in the sidebar and menu bar. However, be careful to not have too many repetition of the keyword on the page.
More could be said about getting visitors. I invite you to look at other posts made on this site.
