Three Easy Ways to Increase Your Google Search Ranking

January 3, 2021

By Sarah

I’ve got three easy and efficient ways for you to increase your Google search ranking that don’t require an advanced master’s degree in search engine optimization!  I recommend reviewing your website and taking a block of time to update each of the following: your page titles, internal links, and alt text image tags. You’ll be amazed how much more traffic Google will send to your site by optimizing these three things!

USE MORE DESCRIPTIVE PAGE TITLES

This is a super simple way to attract more organic traffic, just by adding keywords to your page titles. I suggest keeping your slugs (URLs) short and concise (for example sisoo.com/about) but adding more descriptive keywords to your page titles. Most website page titles are short and concise, like:

“About”

“Appointments”

“Courses”

You’re missing out on easy optimization if you aren’t going into each page of your website and adding more keywords. You want to keep them rather concise, but you want them to include keywords that will help direct specific search results to you. So instead of the above one-word page titles, try the following:

“About the Web Designer”

“Book a Dog Grooming Appointment”

“Video Strategy Courses”

ADD INTERNAL LINKS THROUGHOUT YOUR SITE AND BLOG

An internal link is any link from one page on your website to another page on your website. Yoast.com (arguably the most reputable SEO source) best explains why you need more internal links on your site:

There are several types of internal links. In addition to links on your homepage, menu, post feed, etc, you can also add links within your content. We call those contextual links. Contextual links point your users to interesting and related content. Moreover, they allow search engines to find out what content on your site is related and to determine the value of that content. The more links an important page receives, the more important it will seem to search engines. Therefore, good internal links are crucial to your SEO.

The beauty of internal linking is it’s something you, the website owner, controls. With the right creation of content and implementation of internal links, you’ll guide your visitors and Google to the most important pages of your website.

ADD ALT TEXT TAGS TO ALL YOUR IMAGES

Always remember to give every image you use on your website and blog a keyword-rich alt text tag. Alt text tags allow search engine spiders to find your content. The best way I’ve heard it explained: Google can’t “read” images, but it can read the images that have alt text assigned to them.

Each of your images should include an alt text tag. Not only for boosting your Google ranking, but also because it helps blind and visually impaired people know what the image is about.

Not sure how or where to add an alt text tag to your image? Go into your media library and open your image. Look for the alt text field. Click here to see an example. Here’s how Yoast suggests selecting your on alt text tags:

When choosing alt text, focus on creating useful, information-rich content that uses keywords appropriately and is in context of the content of the page. Avoid filling alt attributes with keywords (keyword stuffing) as it results in a negative user experience and may cause your site to be seen as spam.

I hope these three simple SEO strategies give your Google ranking a major boost. Be sure to read more about growing traffic to your website here!
