Search Engine Optimization is arguably the toughest discipline to master within digital marketing; primarily because, as soon as folks think they have the everything figured out, the people-behind-the-curtain at Google up and change the rules.
Achieving the coveted Google first page ranking for valuable keywords is a sure-fire way of delivering quality organic traffic to your website. However, getting on Google’s first page is no easy feat—and while there’s no definitive how-to or step-by-step guide to ensuring your website can reach a top organic spot, there are some tips to keep in mind if you’re looking to someday get the most out of search engine traffic.
Our friends at Harris Meyers Business Development have put together this infographic outlining key factors for achieving a Google first page ranking. Note: there are no guarantees, and neither Harris Meyers nor Chicago’D is saying that by following all of these steps, your website will automatically rank highly on the SERPs for top keywords. However, failing to follow this advice may leave your site buried in search results forever—a fate none of us competing for visitors can afford in such an overcrowded landscape.
