How can you get higher ranking in Google?

 This is the question that encouraged a lot of webmasters all over the world to try the black hat SEO tactics, which resulted to numerous websites getting banned by Google search engine.  To avoid this from happening to your site, I have come up with some basic guidelines:

1.       A website should have a clear hierarchy and text links. A clear hierarchy lets end-users and Google search engine know what is important in a website. Text links are more important because crawlers can’t read a text contained in an image. A website with a text link navigation menu will be more easily indexed by Google search engine.

2.       Offer your visitors with helpful, relevant information and write contents that clearly and accurately describe your site. Keyword stuffing is against the rule so keep your links on a given page to a reasonable number. Don’t try to deceive the search engine by presenting your users with different or irrelevant content.

3.       Avoid duplicate pages by creating unique, descriptive title and description tag for each page in a site. Make sure that your keywords are visible in each title and description tag. This will help you optimize your website for a specific keyword and drive more targeted traffic.

4.       Always update your website with fresh, high-quality contents. The best way to properly optimize an article is to make sure that your targeted keyword is visible in the title and the content.

5.       Generally, you can improve the rank of your site by increasing the number of high-quality and relevant sites that link to your site’s pages. If your site provides interesting contents, your readers might want to link it to their site. Engaging in forums and commenting on other blogs are also the best ways to build high-quality links to your site. Please avoid spamming.
