Find below a couple of tips to help your website rank better in the search engine rankings.

Plan

Always create a master plan for your website.  The plan will consist of your objectives and the targeted audience you would like to reach.  This must also include a “content plan” that your targeted visitors will find appealing.  Select keywords and keyword phrases around your “content plan” and use those as a guide in planning your linking structure and logical sections of your website.

Focus

By simply adding more pages to your website will not improve your search engine rankings.  It takes planning and organizing a website into focused topics around a focused relevant theme.  Original and unique content that follows the website plan notifies the search engines what subject the website is about.  Websites with high search engine rankings focusses on a single topic to get the best results.

Links

Get authority links that is relevant to your subject to link to your website.  This will also encourage the search engines to index your pages.  Social media like adding a blog to your website can help attract inbound links.  You can also use “article sharing” websites, press releases and FAQ sections to help with this.
