Oh no, it’s not easy to rank on Google first page for any key term. How on earth I’m I supposed to optimize my contents – can anyone help me out?
I’ve tried all I could to make my webpages Google friendly. Is there a secret to ranking on Google first page?
When last did you complain to a friend that Google is wicked – be honest, friend!
All right, the truth of the matter is that there is no secret to ranking on Google. In fact, if you look for any secret, you’ll continue to get penalized by the latest Panda or Penguin. Who knows what wild animal Google has in mind next (could it be the Lion or Zebra? Lol!)
Believe me, you don’t need secrets to achieve success online and build a highly trafficked blog. What you need more than anything is a PLAN.
Without much ado, here are 3 simple ways to rank on Google Top 10 and befriend Penguin.
Note: There is no magic bullet anywhere. You should be ready to work your ass off.
Hard work and a realistic goal are the only ingredients needed to trounce competition and build a successful blog. Let’s dive in:
[box type=”yellow”]1. Analyze Your Webpage Contents[/box]
A lot of bloggers complain that they’re not attracting any traffic from Google. When I get these complaints, the first question I ask is, “what position are you occupying on Google?” It’s so obvious and straight-forward. Without your webpage showing on the first page of Google, you might not get a single click or hit to your blog.
So, the first thing to do is to conduct an analysis test. Be honest to yourself and answer this question: Are your contents worth reading? Read 50+ Ways To Dazzle Blog Readers With Quality Content.
Do you solve readers’ problems or are you one of those writers who pad articles with irrelevant words just to make up the word counts (600 and above)? If you’re convinced that your content isn’t worthy of showing on Google homepage, start by revamping them. No complaints, no excuses. Do it now!

The most delicate mistake bloggers make is to use Google keywords tool to generate a hoard of highly competitive keywords. You think you can dominate Google first page with such terms? Give me a break!
The first step for researching keywords is brainstorming. Use your brain to think. If you’re passionate about your niche and the people you’re serving, you’ve to put yourself in their shoes. Let’s assume you’re facing similar problems like your readers, what would you search for when you go to Google page?
Did you know that most viable and less competitive keywords can never be gotten from any keyword suggestion tool, and that includes Market Samurai?
Find a quiet and inspirational environment to think about your niche. The easiest key terms to dominate are question-based. People who ask questions are desperate for the right solutions.
You’re lucky because your competitors are not optimizing for ‘question-based keywords’ that much. You should use this strategy to your advantage.
Of course, you can use Google keyword research when entering a new market to properly analyze the opportunities, but when it comes to dominating search engines quickly, brainstorming keywords is the best strategy – it’s my secrets (Shh! tell no one).

You think Google hate you blog?
Stop being childish and do the right things. Google doesn’t hate blog or anyone and doesn’t like any blog or blogger either. We and Google are in business together to make profits. Have you forgotten that Google is a search marketing firm?
Every Google update isn’t/wasn’t intended to hurt you or put you out of business. Google is only updating to help web users (you and I) get better results. And you know what?
When buyers, shoppers, prospects, clients and search users are happy with the results they get from Google, the more money Google would make because, Advertisers would increase their per click cost and put more money into Google bank account. Secondly, you as the site owner will profit from target audience who visits your blog from Google.
If you can get readers to participate on your blog, the first page of Google is 100% possible. It all boils down to the quality of your content, how helpful and insightful the contents are. You’re not writing to impress readers, instead, you’ve discovered the need in their lives and have decided to craft a piece that addresses the situation and bring them Joy.
Google is looking for such sites to befriend. Don’t be scared of the Penguin, you can create a worthy and user-friendly content that creatively calls “Penguin” to become your friend. The Penguin can be stubborn, sometimes, so keep wooing and spoon-feeding Google with engaging contents.
