How to Get Your Website on Google First Page
How to Get Your Website on Google First Page? What is it all about? SEO stands for search engine optimisation. Now there’s a mouthful and what does that mean. Basically, it’s having your website ready so search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing can find you.
What do I mean by ‘find’ you, you say, “am I not already online?” Unfortunately, simply being online isn’t enough. There are millions if not billions of websites and pages on the Internet. That is a lot of information for search engines to deal with. So, you need to have a way to get spotted among the other millions of websites. That is where SEO comes in. Search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing use keywords. So when you put search words into Google it uses them to retrieve sites it thinks are the best results for your search.
How do I get to the Top of Google?
It is tough to get to the top of Google’s search results. Google monitors the Web for sites providing authoritative and relevant information. So, in order to get to the top, you must be an active giver of information. “How do I do that?” you ask. The answer isn’t just do one thing and that’s it; there are many factors to be considered. You need a strategy then you practice the steps involved in that strategy.
To boost SEO (search engine optimisation), you research into the keywords people are using when searching for certain types of information. Often, we presume to know what these keywords are but after research, they turn out to be different or variations of a phrase or word.
After you have your keywords researched, you place them in your blogs, posts, images, and web pages.
Part of the strategy of getting noticed is linking. Adding links from your site to another site increases visibility to search engines. This is known as outbound linking. Inbound links are websites that decide to link to your site. Although you have no direct control whether sites link to you, you aim to encourage them by providing interesting and well-written content. You really score high on visibility if you attract other sites to link to yours. Both types of linking should come from authoritative and influential sources.

So to summarise: how to get your website on google first page – use proper search keywords and include outbound links and encourage inbound links to your site.
