7 Little Known Factors That May Affect Your Google Search Rankings
Hello Fellow Nerds, Bloggers, and more. Are you having trouble getting good Google Rankings? Are you not listed. Let me help you fix those SEO problems quickly, freely, and in a respectable way.
First Let’s Talk about a few things that can screw up your search Rankings
- Link Selling, sponsored links, And purchased links. Incoming links are “the currency of the web”. So why not just purchase them, right? Wrong! Google knows which websites have bought links and if they associate your site with those sites then they will simply refuse to crawl your sites. Your sites will not be listed. Don’t buy links. They don’t help! Don’t sell sponsored links. This also runs the risk of getting you blacklisted. Paid links mess up Google results, so Google will simply not allow you onto Google if you are a link sponsor.
- Hidden Links. Did you get your template off of the web? Did you get it for free? Free templates often have hidden links embedded into the template that will hurt your site’s rankings by making it look randomized. I have found links as diverse as Car Sellers, Porn Sites, and Web designers all hidden in free templates for WordPress and other platforms.
- Free Domain Names: Either buy a domain from a real host such as Godaddy, or stick to the free .blogspot.com or .webs.com or .wordpress.com domains. These are fine. Webs.com, Blogger, WordPress, and other website creators are respected and their subdomains can be listed on Google. The free domains such as .co.cc and .net.ms that you can get free online are often tide to spam and if you use them your site will be blacklisted by Google. Trust me. I’ve seen it. You will not make the search.
- Stick to only respectable providers of anything (Templates, Widgets, Ads, Domains, Hosting, Etc)
- Don’t try to scam Google. Don’t fill your page with keywords. Don’t buy links. Google is filled with 10,000 employees that probably all aced their SATs. They aren’t stupid.
- Get A Google Webmaster Account. This is a website owner’s best friend. It is free, and made by Google, and it allows you to submit sitemaps so that your content is crawled, troubleshoot issues and see when you are unlisted, and view how you are being found on Google.
