To reach the higher ranking especially #1 in Google and other search engines like Yahoo, Bing and so on can be tough and easy at the same time.

Taking your site or getting your blog higher in ranking takes a lot of time and if you are given any shortcut, then you need to know that the person is lying with you.

There is no shortcut for ranking higher in search engine results page (SERP). Many tips are there which are still hidden to webmaster about SEO but here are 6 top SEO tips for you to peruse for the sake of getting higher ranking in Google.

Search Engine Optimization

1. Good Searchable Content

Even after matching or optimizing your tags, you need to keep the content of the site very relevant to SEO so that you may reach at the spot where you want.

For example, if you have made a site related to some material, you need to use the name of the material many times in your site so that Google thinks that your content is relevant to your site and you may achieve higher rankings.

Moreover, it is also important for you to keep your keywords in the first paragraph (or header section) of your post.

2. Quality Theme

We all know how a well-designed theme can affect our site’s ranking. It is not just about the look, the reading experience of our visitors but also the loading speed of websites. Google has mentioned several times in video blogs, blogs on how the site speed affects it’s ranking.

This is understandable because it will reduce their servers’ workload and improve readers’ experience at the same time. You need to find out a quality theme for your blog that is lightweight, well designed and the current trend is premium responsive themes for WordPress because they could fit to any screen size.

3. Optimize Title & Description Meta Tags

A Title tag is the easiest and the most effective way to optimize your site or particular page. In other words, focusing on the keyword is the best option for you to rank higher in Google and other search engines.

For example, if you are going to make a site on the keyword “jungle gyms”, you need to focus on a title (with this keyword) so that you may reach the right position in search engines.

Moreover, you need to select those blog post titles which are easily searchable by the readers and users. Google thinks that these title tags are very important and crucial.

The above go for description tags as well. Choose a couple of keyword (depending on the keyword density) from your entire blog post and put them in the description field.

4. Inner or Inter Linking

Try as much as you can to link all the pages of your site so that the search engines understand that you are paying full attention to the entire site, not just the home page.

So, you need to make sure that you use proper anchor texts in the inner links. This way, the readers will not only reach the page where they want to, but the search bots or spiders will also be able to navigate and index all your pages.

5. Build Backlinks

In SEO, backlinks are the most important factor (of course after quality content) which you need to keep in mind. If your site does not have quality backlinks, you will have to suffer from problems.

If you want to make it to the Top 5 in SERP (Search Engine Results Page) then building backlinks is probably the only option you’ve in your hand.

On the other hand, rather than adopting the services of some webmaster, you can build backlinks on your own. Blog Commenting on Dofollow, CommentLuv/KeywordLuv enabled blogs is one of the easiest methods to go with. You can build backlinks to your site using articles directories and forums at the same time.

More backlinks will take your site higher up in the rankings. SEO optimized content must be kept in mind while building backlinks to your site.

6. Patience and again Patience

Taking a site higher in ranking takes steady work and most of the site owners don’t have much patience to give time to their work and then see the results. They want to do this in one day. So, be patent if you want to get your site higher in Google or any other search engine.

You need to understand SEO tools and SEO strategies, which obviously will not come in your night dreams after a day of hard work. So, by following these top 6 SEO tips, you can get your site to the top position in rankings with ease.


  1. Thank you for these wonderful tips. Everyone wants to rank high on Google, but I find the biggest problem is persistence. It takes time for Google bots to capture keywords. If you have applied all of the above, but are not consistent and patient, you’ll get nowhere. CommentLuv needs to be on your blog. I find that so many are not doing this. When someone writes a good comment on my blog and I publish it, I want to reciprocate to that person. If there is no Commentluv, it takes time to find them.
    Thanks for a great post
    Donna Merrill

    1. Yes, Donna.
      Commentluv is the best way to not only getting some back links but also encourage discussions on our blogs. The problem is just many people write short and valueless comments to earn backlinks, therefore the number of blogs installing this plugin is decreasing by time.

  2. You are so right with point # 6, Patience. People are always in a hurry to get there site to number 1 as fast as possible. Sure you can do, however it want stay there for long. Google quickly squashes fast rankings. Blackhat practices are proof of this. I feel the secrest to any SEO campaign is to add value to the readers, be on your site or with your backinking.

  3. Great overview of SEO. #6 is often the hardest point to understand. Clients often want to see results immediately, but it doesn’t work that way. You need to have realistic expectations from the start.

    1. I agree with you Nick, most clients, when they hire someone to do the SEO work for them, expect results overnight. I know some of my friends who do SEO work for their clients and they really get stressed when some of their clients want to see results in a mere couple of days only.

      1. I used to have the same problem but it’s our duty to educate and explain to them how the SEO process works. When they have better understanding, they will stop complaining. 🙂

  4. Of all the tips you’ve mentioned, I must say that one of the most important things in doing anything for your blog is to be patient – always! SEO tools and strategies are actually very simple to understand for most who love to learn new things, but doing them all is another story! It takes serious time, effort and maybe even a bit of money in order to maximize our blogs overall standing on the Net and make it to Google’s #1 page.

  5. the Tips are worthy to bookmark, and i applied few things before.

    one doubt. my blog is inspiration one. getting traffic in good value.. but the Bounce rate is high enough – that for me to jump from cliff.

    what to do ?

    1. Hi Sri,
      In order to reduce bounce rate, try to write articles that would engage your readers to stay longer. It’s up to you to make it a bit longer, just as long as you don’t bore your readers. Incorporate relevant photos to entertain them for a good 10 or 30 more seconds.

  6. Now it seems that Google changed the way he crawles web pages. It’s considered to pay fewer attention to anchor text links. I’m not sure in it, probably somebody knows better about it?

    1. Yes, that’s right. Anchor text links will play a less important role in Google’s new algorithm ranking. We even can be penalized if overuse it.
      I will mention the new change in the upcoming post on my site. Check it out. 🙂

  7. You make a great point about having a quality theme, that can help you go along way without much seo help if set up right.
