How to Improve Google Search Results

There are numerous ways of improving your position in Google without having to revert to trickery.

When trying to improve your search engine rankings it’s good to think of Google as a small child on his or hers 1st day at a new school.

You need to clearly and concisely inform the child where they should go, let them know when they have found the correct room, provide enough entertainment to keep them enthused, make them feel safe and secure, make them want to join in, make them want to come back.

You should also let them know where other rooms are; toilets, dinner halls, staff rooms, playgrounds, etc. and make it easy for them to get from room to room.

In website and search engine terms the equivalent of a child knowing where they should go is a good navigation system with clear labeling (anchor test)

Knowing they have found the equivalent to the correct room is achieved by having good titles and headings

Keeping them enthused is achieved by the quality content you display on the page.

Feeling safe and secure is achieved by displaying consistent contact details, company numbers, good about pages, clear terms pages, positive testimonials, etc.

Knowing how to navigate through the school, how to get to other rooms how to get back to their original room is again achieved by clear concise navigation systems and ideally every room (page) should be able to be reached within 2 steps of most other main rooms (pages)
