Get listed on Google in less time

Over the past week or so I have received or been asked numerous questions about how I get sites listed on the first pages of the search engines for my clients targeted keywords in less than a month or what type of keyword tools I use.

So I decided to give a tip based off of those two questions. Well okay, I guess it would be tips instead of tip.LOL

I will start with the keyword tool first. When researching what type of keywords people are using for products you are selling or thinking about selling you can try Wordtracker or Miva. They both have free tools that you can use. Just enter in your type of product and there will be a display of keyword suggestions along with the number of daily searches. Locate the best that works for your products and use them in your meta titles, keywords in description.

Hurray!!! You are on your way to being listed on Google. Well no, not really. Yes keyword research is a MAJOR part of getting listed on the first pages of Google but.... that's not all to it though. If using the tools mentioned above and putting the keywords in your meta title and keyword tag and description were enough we would all be SEO experts.LOL

But the truth is, keyword optimization is not the win all situation.

Yes you can have the keywords in your meta title separate them by any symbol of your liking have them in the description over time you will start to see your site on the first four pages of the major search engines just by using that method but not any sooner than two months to a year.

It is somewhat difficult to really know how fast any SEO campaign will show results, and every campaign is different of course. SEO results are impacted by a lot of factors. One is the number of competitors competing for a keyword, the age of the site, the age of your competitors sites, and how well set competing sites are.

Okay so got the keyword thingy covered. So here's how you get listed quickly and I already know you guys know this but do you really know how it works?

How do I get some of my clients sites listed in as little as three weeks?:

Link Building

That's it!

Link Building. ..

Yes, it's tedious and boring and can make your head spin but it works.

You may say, well Carla that's what I have been doing for months and I am still not being listed on page 1, 2, or even 20!

Yes, but it depends on the type of links you are building.

You must focus on one way link building instead of just reciprocal linking. Reciprocal linking is okay and necessary if you are new and don't let anyone tell you that reciprocal link building is not good for your site! Yes, if you go overboard with it, it is not. For example, if you are exchanging links with over 100 sites per day than that just isnt natural and Google can see right through that. Hint stay away from sites that promise you thousands of links. They most likely own tons of websites and they just submit your website to all of their sites. Not good at all and it is known as one of those black hat tactics.

Start getting people to link to your site via site reviews, or product reviews. Create content that will make other sites want to link to you. Post comments on blogs with high page ranks and that do not have a "no follow" tag. If you get incoming links from sites that have a page rank of 3 or higher you will start to see your site appear right away in as little as four weeks.

So I know that's not what you wanted to hear because link building is truly boring but so worth it.

So put that on your to do list. Start getting incoming links, then your keyword research will come into play and things will all start to come together naturally.

I hope this helps out.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Wishing you all a successful business day.
