SEO Tips - 5 Top SEO Tips For Higher Rankings In Google Part 1

Author: Jay Sullivan
Here\'s part 1 of our 5 top SEO tips that will improve your rankings in Google. By using these SEO tips you\'ll be able to crush any niche, dominate your market and promote ANY business, and if you\'re competing in local markets, your results will be astounding to say the least.
Before we go into detail about our SEO tips, you need to know that we\'re not gaming Google here. This is the reason why we can get sites to rank quickly and more importantly stay there. There\'s no loophole or backdoor so to speak with these SEO tips.
In fact, if you look through all of Google\'s past literature on how they rank sites, you\'ll see that what we\'re doing essentially is giving Google what they want.

We\'re setting our websites up the way Google wants us to set our websites up with these SEO tips...cool huh?

Unless Google changes the way they rank sites in the future, or a new coding standard is introduced worldwide (forget algorithm updates...we\'ve been though all those and our sites still stay in 1st place!) you\'ll have complete piece of mind that by using our SEO tips, your site will still survive. Ok, let\'s get started with our list of top 5 SEO Tips...





SEO Tips Number 1: Use An Exact Match Keyword Phrase In The Domain Name
We won\'t go into detail about keyword research in these SEO tips, otherwise we could fill a whole blog up. But, whatever niche you\'re targeting, always try to get the keyword you want to rank for as an exact match domain name. Don\'t add any prefixes, suffix or slashes etc. For example, if we was to try to rank for 'SEO tips' (like we have already with this site) you can bet your bottom dollar that www.seotips.com has already been taken.
So in this example we found an aged domain that contained the keyword in. (See quick SEO tips below for more details about this method) Your best bet is to try for a .com, .net or .org. We\'ve been having some great success with the .co variety, and there are still quite a few .co exact match keyword domains out there. I\'ve also seen success with the .info domain extension as well. For an example of this, search for 'free spyware removal' on Google. Currently there\'s a .info in top spot getting a fair share of the 14,800 monthly searches!



Quick SEO Tips: Another option is to go for an aged domain name with your keyword contained in it (like we have with this site). If you have Scrapebox, there\'s a cool addon that searches the TDNAM marketplace for soon to be expiring domain names, and you can pick up a 3-10 yr old domain from as little as $5. The advantage of having an aged domain is it carries a bit more weight, and will help rank your site faster.

Another one of our cool SEO tips would be to try and register any domain names between 2-5 yrs and don\'t hide behind any whois protection. It stands to reason that someone who registers a domain name for a long period of time and leaves their contact details visible, is here to do business for good, and has nothing to hide.
Don\'t overlook any of these SEO tips. Trust me when i say Google is NASA smart and picks up on these things! Two domain name registrars I use are Godaddy and Namecheap. There are Lots of coupons running around that will give you a hefty discount as well, so do a search for the latest Namecheap coupons or Godaddy coupons on Google, OR check out the sidebar of SEO tips for the current coupon code for Namecheap.
UPDATE: It\'s come to SEO tips attention that a lot of people have been having trouble with Godaddy. If one of your domains get caught in a pickle after trying out some new SEO tactics, Godaddy likes to delete all domains on that account.
Namecheap is the best domain company there is when registering TLD domains. For hosting I can highly recommend Hostgator. SEO tips have been using these for years and after running a few tests, I\'ve found all my Wordpress blogs seem to get indexed quicker and rank faster with these guys. You can get your first months hosting for 1 cent by clicking the Hostgator banner found to the right of our site as well.

Ok, so let\'s move on to SEO Tips number 2...




SEO Tips Number 2: Use Wordpress To Build All Your Sites
This is probably one of the most important SEO tips we could ever give. Always build your websites with Wordpress. There\'s no excuse for you not to use it. Its SEO friendly, comes with hundreds of themes (most free) and also has thousands of plugins that can improve your on-site SEO at the click of a button. Most hosting companies come with Cpanel which includes Fantastico. With this you can install Wordpress in just seconds.
Another one of our SEO tips would be to purchase a premium theme that is SEO friendly to give your site a more professional look. But, if you don\'t have the cash, then there are lots of good, free themes available that can be used to implement these SEO tips. Just do a search on Google for 'free Wordpress themes'. The theme we\'re using on our site was built with Artisteer, which is a cool piece of software that allows anyone with no design experience to build search engine optimized Wordpress themes with ease.
Quick SEO Tips: When setting up your theme always add a about us page, a contact page and a privacy page. You don\'t have to SEO these pages, but if you get them up, they\'ll set a framework for the rest of your website and make it look good in Google\'s eyes. If you downloaded contact form 7 plugin for Wordpress, then this will add a contact form to your blog with ease. You can also search for sample privacy policies online as well.

Once you\'ve got Wordpress installed, there are a few plugins you\'re going to need to make your site even more SEO friendly. Don\'t miss the following SEO tips out, it\'s important to follow everything we do if you want to rank high in Google... You\'ll need to download the plugins Google XML sitemaps, Platinum SEO or All In One SEO pack, Contact Form 7 and SEOPressor.
All these plugins are free except for SEOPressor, which costs around $47 for a single site license, or $97 for a multiple site license. Worth every penny in my books and an important plugin to have if you\'re going to get high rankings in Google by following these SEO tips laid out for you. SEOPressor alone will handle all of your on page optimization automatically. I use it on all of my websites that rank high in Google, and it forms an important part of my SEO strategy.

Once you\'ve installed Wordpress and all the plugins mentioned above, it\'s time to move onto the next one of our SEO tips...

SEO Tips Number 3: Use On Page Optimization
On page optimization is probably one of the most under used of our SEO tips. Do this and get it right, and you\'ll see your rankings soar. Whatever keyword you\'re trying to rank for you\'re going to need to write at least 2 articles between 850-1000 words long. You can either write them yourself, or get someone else to do the work for you. You should expect to pay between $10-$20 per 1,000 words.
These two articles will serve as your blog posts. Two will be just fine for these SEO tips, but you can go up to three or more if you wish. The key is to include all the goodies that Google loves within each post, whilst aiming for a keyword density of about 3 As a major search engine Google\'s job is to serve the most relevant document for any given search term, and with these blog posts we\'ll maximize the on page leverage accordingly with the following SEO tips.
As mentioned earlier you\'ll need to grab the SEOpressor Wordpress plugin for most of these SEO tips to work. I\'ve done tons of tests with SEOPressor, and this is how i achieve fantastic on page leverage: I will play around with each post until i get a score of 100in SEOPressor. I achieve this by writing or using articles of at least 850 words long. It\'s really hard to get a 100score with SEOPressor for anything less than 850. The best thing about this plugin is that it shows you EXACTLY what you need to do to achieve a 100on page optimization score making these SEO tips even easier to implement!
Quick SEO Tips: After you\'ve crafted your blog posts to get a 100on page optimization score, link out once to an authority site like wikipedia using the nofollow attribute. Simply use the main keyword you want to rank for as the anchor text.

Don\'t skip this part of our SEO tips...every site I\'ve achieved a 100on page optimization score with dominates the search results...I\'ve seen people who are using SEOpressor with articles that are way too short and have 60-70scores. What a complete waste of on page potential!
The next few SEO tips you\'ll need to do is set your keyword as the category for each post and make the tags for each of your posts the same as your keyword. Another important one of our SEO tips is to make sure you have your keyword in the title of your posts AND at the beginning. For example: SEO Tips - 5 Top SEO Tips For Higher Rankings In Google. You\'ll also need to add and rename any images to match your target keyword. For this site we\'ve uploaded an image called 'SEO tips - part 1' and also set the main keyword as the description, alt tag and caption text. You can do this inside Wordpress when you upload your images.
Next on our list of SEO tips is to go into your Wordpress permalinks settings and change your permalink setting to: /ostnameinstead of the default permalink setting that Wordpress gives you. I\'m going to continue with these SEO tips in my next blog post, where I\'ll carry on with a few more on page optimization tweaks we can do with Wordpress, off site seo tips, and how to get indexed fast. I hope you take everything you\'ve learned so far and put it to good use. Good luck with these SEO tips.
