Did you know that there are currently more than a billion active websites on the internet today? This means there are a billion websites that are actively coming out with new articles and content every day and not just sitting there dormant. What this also means is that you have a whole world of competition just waiting out there for you and making it harder for your site to rank in Google and gain attention through social media.
The good news is that while there is such competition out there and odds against your sight actually ranking in Google on the first page, there are plenty of ways for you to improve your sights performance while also rising up against the competition.
Two of the most effective ways to do this or through the use of SEO and social media. SEO is the concept of search engine optimization and building backlinks to your site while also making sure you have content that provides value to your audience and is seen as quality content in the eyes of Google.
On the flip side, then you also have social media. Social platforms are great for getting people to come to your website and allowing Google to see that people are actually using it. The more social shares that you get to your website, allows Google to see that people are actually using your content and wanted to share with others. Twitter is one of the most commonly used platforms out there, as they allow for the posting of site URLs that people can click and instantly be sent over to your site.
Through the use of an effective SEO content creation and marketing strategy, there is no reason why your site won’t start ranking in Google. The important thing to remember is that your site isn’t going to bring at the top of Google right away. The majority of sites that are ranking on the first page of Google already have millions of back links to their site and likely have spent years building it up to where it is today.
For this reason, it’s important to focus on content that is very niche specific. For example don’t just write about how to start a garden. Instead write an article about how to start a garden that might be focused on composting or even the concept of gardening in different climates.
Over time you will also start to get a better understanding of how a website starts out and ranks over time. The domain and Page authority of a website is also important in reference to how your site will rank in Google. When your site first starts out it will be ranking at zero and this number will gradually increase over time. This will also come into play when choosing a niche for your website, as you will need to reach out to other prominent blogs and websites to help build new backlinks to your site.
Another example is if you were going to create a site about coloring books, this is a bit too generic. It might be better for you to focus on adult coloring books or coloring books for younger age children. The more specific you get, the more likely you are to rank higher in Google and also reach your target audience.
When it comes to the optimization of your sight there are plenty of tools out there to help with this as well. Most websites and blogs are using WordPress to power their sights. Through the use of a WordPress plugin like Yoast, you can easily install the plug in and it will give you recommendations and tips on how to improve the title, descriptions, and written content on your site.
With so much competition on the internet today, it’s important to realize that there are plenty of tools out there to help you on this process and that you need to take advantage of each of them.
If you want to build a successful business on the internet today, you need to treat it like a business and not just a side project that is going to make you a millionaire overnight. With more than a billion websites on the internet today it’s easier than ever to get started, but the competition is also higher than ever as well.
