How to do SEO the right way. Get on the front page of Google

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization is the process of increasing a website’s ranking in search results. There’s lots of competition for big keywords like auto insurance, fitness and business strategies. Your website or article has to be unique and creative to stand out from the competition. Google bases it’s ranking on popularity. The more popular a website is, the better it will rank in search results. So how does Google know when a website is popular? Backlinks.

Backlinks occur when a user shares a link on the web. Say a user posts a link on a forum or blog post, they just gave that link good feedback and perhaps a boost in search results.

How to make SEO simple

You need good keywords.

Keywords that relate to your content and keywords that users are actually googling for.

You need great content.

No one wants to share your site it its lame. Post unique and interesting content that you know users will want to share.

You need good on page SEO.

Title, Description and Header tags help robots crawl and rank your site. The title should be around 72 characters long, the description should be 165 characters long and the h1 tag should be similar to your title.

You need backlinks.

Google will know your site is legit by users sharing your content around the web. More backlinks means better search rankings.

Using this knowledge

Now we can implement this technique and write some good on page SEO and keywords. In this example, we are targeting users who want to know how to make a website. When a user googles, “How to make a website” your website will be on the front page if you have good on page SEO, unique content and a few backlinks.

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
	<!-- The title should be descriptive and limited to 72 characters -->
	<title>How to make a website - Web Tutorials | My Site</title>
	<!-- The description should be different on every page and limited to 165 characters -->
	<meta name="description" content="Making a website is not an easy task. Here we will teach some easy steps for a successful website. We also have many tips and tricks to make you a better developer." />
</head>
<body>
	<div id="wrapper">
		<!-- The h1 tag should be closely related to the title -->
		<h1>Easy steps on how to make a website</h1>
		<!-- Great unique content is key getting users to share your content and getting backlinks -->
		<p>This is just dummy text. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum gravida justo in arcu mattis lacinia. Mauris aliquet mi quis diam euismod blandit ultricies ac lacus.</p>
	</div><!-- /wrapper -->

    Thanks for insightful post. Search engines love fresh and new content, so a key component of optimizing your site is to update it regularly. You can create new pages or blog posts, as well as updating your existing pages to reflect changes.A good rule to apply here is to write for your readers first, and search engines second.
