3 Ways to Improve Your Website Ranking

Like most business owners today you may be wondering how to get a better website ranking for your website without having to employ the services of someone like us, well there is a way that can & will increase your rankings and all you need is a little bit of time & effort. Below are 3 Ways to Improve Your Website Ranking.

1. Install Yoast Seo onto your WordPress website
If you don’t have WordPress website you can easily set one up for free and install Yoast on it and test out each page of your website for seo quality score. Yoast works on a simple Red for bad SEO, Amber for needs a bit more work SEO, Green for you have good SEO. It is really simple to use and administer and if you get a green light you should see a quick improvement of your website’s ranking.

2. Set up a free 1 month trial with SEOMOZ.org or SEOProfiler.com
By doing this you will  be able to see what your website is doing well & what your website needs to do better to compete with your competitors who have a higher ranking than you.  You can trial this service for a month, which should give you enough time to develop and integrate a plan of action to compete with the higher ranking websites.

3. Set up a Places for Business page & Google Plus page
Start to ask people to review your service. It still amazes me how many businesses in Ireland have a Google places listing without  any reviews beside it,  there are techniques to use to improve your ranking, but the main focus should be to get your information bar to 100% then making sure that the likes of Yelp – Qype – etc all have your correct details of company name, address, telephone number and website so if you are reviewed on those websites it is easier for Google to put 2 + 2 together.

I hope that this helps you to get a better rank on Google.
