Google first page: free tips on getting your site found on Google’s page one

Unless your web site shows up on Google’s first page, the chances of your site being found by customers and clients is zero.

Here are techniques I’ve used to get my sites and my clients’ on Google’s first page.

NOTE:

This article is designed for people who already have a main company website, but it isn’t getting lots of traffic. You already have a “tree” — now we have to create some “branches”.

Remember: your customers and clients are searching for your product or service using certain keywords.

Let’s say you’ve determined that people looking for what you sell will be searching Google using the phrase:

discount electronic widget adaptors

Now, because Google looks at how many other sites link to yours, you must create “backlinks” to your web site.

FREE WEB SITE and BLOG CREATION SITES

You can do this easily using free web site and blog creation tools. Sign up for free accounts at:

HubPages
Squidoo
DevHub
Blogger
WordPress
WetPaint
Tumblr
Xanga

Set up a free site, page or blog at ALL of these sites, using their simple templates.

When the set up wizard asks your for the title of your new site, type in:

Discount Electronic Widget Adaptors

Then if the particular platform lets you, use dashes in your new site’s matching URL:

discount-electronic-widget-adaptors

If you can’t use dashes, that’s ok. Just type in:

discountelectronicwidgetadaptors

Next, create a Squidoo lens or HubPage or blog that someone would actually appreciate. Add your expert advice about buying discount electronic widget adaptors – after all, you sell them, right?

(You can find all kinds of advice on the internet about how to create great web pages on Squidoo etc, but right now, we are concentrating on what happens after that: getting your sites on Google’s first page.)

Always include one clickable link (and more if you are allowed to) to you main, pre-existing company website (the one that isn’t getting that much traffic.)

After you’ve set up all these free blogs and sites about discount electronic widget adaptors, go back to each one, and add links to all your other new web sites, in an “Additional Resources” or “Links” section, or somewhere in the sidebar.

Now what you’ve done is link all your pages together. Google likes web sites that have been recommended, or linked to, from other sites.

Then, add a links page to your company web site, and – you guessed it – add clickable links to all your new sites.

Next: tell the world – and Google — about all your new web sites.

TWITTER

To show up in Google, your new sites need to be “spidered” by Google’s “bots.” The fastest way to get each site spidered is to use Twitter.

Send out a tweet like this one:

I’ve just made a new site about discount electronic widget adaptors at [hyperlink]

If necessary, use an url shortener like TinyUrl.

Do this for every single new page. You don’t want to spam or annoy your Twitter followers, so use a free Twitter message timer like Twuffer.com all these tweets to go out at different times.

SOCIAL MARKER

Next, use SocialMarker.com to tell all the important social bookmarking sites, like Digg, Reddit and others about your new web pages.

This will take a little time if you don’t already have an account with these bookmarking sites. So first, you’ll have to visit Digg and all these other sites and create an account. If possible, select their “keep me logged in” option.

Go to SocialMarker.com, fill in the fields under “Bookmark details” for ONE of your new sites, (using your keyword phrase as much as possible) and hit “submit.”

Social Marker will take you to Digg, Reddit and all the other sites one at a time. Remember, you are already signed in to those sites, so it will only take a few seconds each to submit your new blog or site.

Social Marker also requires some trial and error to master, but again: practice makes perfect!

Just use it for each of your new sites, one at a time.

With Social Marker, you’ve just created another set of backlinks to your new sites, coming from places Google considers important, like Digg and Mixx.com.

(PS: you can also use ShareThis.com to do the same thing as Social Marker. Either way, REMEMBER: you must build up as many backlinks as possible to achieve ranking on Google’s first page.)

PING MY BLOG

Next, go to PingMyBlog.com and one at a time, “ping” your new web sites, pages, and/or blog.

Do this each time you make (major) changes to a blog, too, to give them another little nudge.

GOOGLE FIRST PAGE RESULTS

Let about 12 to 24 hours go by (if you can wait that long – I’m not very good at doing that).

Go to Google.com. If you have a Google account, look at the upper right hand side of the page. If you are “Signed In,” be sure to sign out.

Then refresh the page, and, find the browser tool that clears your previous web searching history.

Unless you do this, you’ll get search results back that reflect what YOU’VE been looking for on your computer. And you want, as much as possible right now, to see what a total stranger would see if they typed “discount electronic widget adaptors” (WITHOUT the quotation marks!) into the Google search field.

So do just that: type your keyword phrase into your Google search field and see what comes up.

It may take a few more days to see more of your sites showing up on page one, but if you have followed these instructions, you should see results.

Doing all this costs you nothing but time, energy and patience. But believe me, it is worth it.

I’ve gotten my clients’ “page one” results in 24 hours — in one case for a trendy search term that had over 78,000 competing results!

However, there is STILL more to learn about how to get your site(s) on Google’s first page. I haven’t told you the half of it.

For example, Google search results can be highly volatile; your site’s standings will rise and fall depending on lots of different factors.

You HAVE to stay on top of it.

One of the best resources about getting Google first page results is a NEW ebook, with methods the author has tested through trial and error.

He talks about that annoying volatility with your Google first page results, and what you can do about it. Not every writer does this; they just tell you how to get on Google’s first page, but not how to STAY there!

He also shares some truly unique ideas and resources I never thought of using before and have never read about anywhere else.
