1. Optimize Your Site for Google RanBrain
A while back, Google announced their RankBrain algorithm.
And as it turns out, this update was a HUGE game changer.
Google RankBrain is Google’s first machine learning algorithm. In other words, it measures how you interact with the results on the first page:
As you can see, the happier you make Google’s users, the higher you’ll rank.
Sure, backlinks, keywords and other traditional signals are still important. But RankBrain is quickly taking over.
In fact, Google went on to say that RankBrain was one of their “top 3” ranking signals:
(The other 2 key search engine ranking factors? Links and content).
The question is:
How do you optimize your site for Google RankBrain?
Here are two simple, easy-to-implement tips that are working great for me right now:
First, improve your organic click-through-rate (CTR).
Google RankBrain wants to see that lots of people are clicking on your site in the search results.
That tells Google:
“People LOVE this result. Let’s boost it to the top of the page so it’s easier to find”.
But if people don’t click on your result? Google will drop your site like a stone.
And that’s why optimizing your site for organic CTR is so important.
2. Complete an SEO Audit on your website
Auditing your website helps you discover why you’re not getting enough search traffic and sales. Many SEO companies offer this service, but you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself.
In general terms, auditing is a systematic examination of an event, a result, a concept, or financial books that is done in order to figure out where you stand and how to make smarter decisions in the future. In the SEO world, auditing is a growth hacking technique that will help you attract and retain customers.
An SEO audit means you’re closely examining your overall site performance, setting new goals based on what you find, and implementing tactics to reach those goals. This process helps you increase your profits by making the best use of the content you already have.
This may not sound like an advanced SEO strategy, but you’d be surprised how many websites are missing basic on-page SEO like page titles or descriptions. It’s easy to overlook when creating your website, but easy to fix with an audit.
Here’s what you should be looking for during an audit:
Check #1: Do all your website’s pages have SEO meta titles and descriptions?
Check #2: Is each page on your website optimized for SEO keywords?
Remember, optimize appropriately without keyword stuffing!
Check #3: Is your URL structure optimized for search engines?
