With the right content and a well set up SEO tactic, your website stands the chance of ranking so well on search engines (Google’s listing pages for instance), when potential users search for related content.
However, content and SEO aren’t enough for you to rank higher on Google. There are other factors that contribute to Google ranking your website higher. Here’s five of them.
Increase your content quality
Google doesn’t want you to upload content for content sake. Perhaps you’ve heard, at some point, that “content is king”. But with Google “quality content is king”.
If your website only creates loads of contents, without having the quality (which include relevant statistics, images, nice readability, moderate keywords etc), Google won’t necessarily rank your website higher, instead you are at a high risk of moving down while others websites abiding by the rules move ahead of yours.
Eliminate Zombie Pages
Zombie pages are pages that do not add any specific value to your website. Examples of zombie pages are old and outdated blog posts, e-commerce pages with no sales, category and tag pages.
Usually, when users search on Google, the search engine will have to index through websites with related information as to what the user is searching for. If your website has more pages to be indexed before finding the right page, then a website with fewer pages but similar information, will be ranked higher.
Fix SEO Breaks
With quality content, better page indexes but technical SEO faults, your website won’t be getting a higher ranking on Google, but there is a fine way to fix this, it’s called ‘Auditing’. By auditing your website with an auditor tool, your backlinks and SEO work as intended, and practically improving your ranking on Google.
