Free Ways to Increase Your Website Ranking

Posted January 20, 2012 by

When was the last time you looked in a phone book for a phone number or for information SEO - Search Engine Optimizationabout a business to call? As everyone continues to turn to the Internet for information and recommendations, your search engine ranking continues to grow in value. Since most people will start their research with the first hits returned by a search engine, getting to the top of the results are extremely important. Unless you have a huge budget to continuously pay all of the various search engines for paid results, the one always displayed at the top and sides, you need to learn ways to make sure that your site is as appealing and friendly to the search engines as possible. Because Google, Yahoo and Bing constantly change the algorithms they use to rank pages, be sure to check back with us from time to time for information on all of the latest tips and tricks. Here are a few to deploy as soon as possible:

1. Renew your domain name for 5-15 years. It used to be that the longer your domain name was around, the better your ranking. However search engines are now looking to see how many future years your domain name is registered for as well. The reasoning is that if you believe that your company will be around in 10+ years, you might have a good business model, be successful, and be more worthy of a higher ranking.

2. Ensure you have lots of great information to share. When deciding which site to rank above another, many search engines examine how much original content your site provides to viewers. For example, if you are an attorney and have 5 pages that describe your firm, your rates, and the areas of law you practice, you will rank much lower compared to a similar firm that provides advice, case studies, resource guides and self-help information. And do not simply purchase stories or “precanned” websites from a provider that sells the same site to others in your industry. Original content outranks information that can be found on many similar sites. 

3. Make it interactive. Allow users to post to your blog to share their thoughts, comments, and questions. The more active users you have sharing original content, the higher you will rank. Sites with a lot of two-way traffic definitely outrank “information only” sites.

4. Grow external links. If you can get a number of other sites and other people (via Twitter, FaceBook, etc.) to link back to your site, the higher you will rank. Search engines figure that if directories, professional organizations, manufacturers, vendors, partners, and consumers are talking about your site and directing others to it, you must have something worth sharing with the world. Look for ways to promote your business and get links back to your site.

These are just a few of the dozens of tactics our website development team uses to help clients increase their search engine ranking. If you would like assistance getting more traffic or updating your website, please call your Technology Consultant for additional information.
