Top Search Engine RankingSo you want to get top search engine ranking for your websites hey, well this is actually not as hard as most people think it is. All it takes is some good planing, a little research for your keywords, some work on building your backlinks and a little on page SEO for the page that you want to get ranked.

Well let`s get started.

A great way to increase your Internet traffic from the search engines is to try to target lower competition keyword phrases. For this post, I’m going to be targeting the keyword search “Top Search Engine Ranking”.

I will be breaking this post up into different posts as I start doing my SEO work to rank for it, so you can follow along with me and do the exact same thing on your blogs for any keyword that you want to rank for.

Keep in mind, that this keyword is pretty competitive, and will take more work to rank than a keyword with less competition, but this will prove as a great resource for you to follow, so lets get started.

First, let’s take a look at the search volume on Google for this search term.

Total Searches Made

So by using the Google Keyword Tool, we found that this search term receives 3,600 Broad searches, and 1,600 Exact searches monthly.

Let’s now check to see what the competition is for this search term.

Ranking Competition

As you can see, this search term has roughly 249 million resulting pages that get returned, We still have one more search to make to check on this search term.

Exact Ranking Competition

This time, we received roughly 538 thousand resulting pages that got returned. Still pretty high competition and will be a great term to show you how to rank for.

Now you might be wondering, why make the search in quotes?

Well when you make your search in Quotes, Google will return only pages with the Exact search term that you’re looking for. So in our case, Google only returned pages in their index with the exact term Top Search Engine Ranking.

If you want to make it easier to rank for a term, try to find keywords that have less than 100 thousand results using your term in Quotes.

Well this is it for this post. Now go out there, find your keywords and get ready for the next post about Top Search Engine Ranking as I show you how to analyze the competing pages for your term.

Whats The Best Website Traffic

Increase Website TrafficThis is something that people always ask and wonder about when they’re trying to build website traffic to their blogs or websites.

So what is the best website traffic?

Well that all depends on what your website is all about, where your website traffic is coming from, are you able to maximize your site traffic that you already have.

If you have a website about golf clubs for instance, but you’regetting website traffic that’s targeted more to people who are looking for information about gold fish, there is no way that you will be able to maximize this traffic to generate any sales at all.

I know, using Golf clubs and Gold fish as a comparison. But this is a great valid point, and the reason I used this relates to your backlink building.

You see, the best website traffic you can get, is targeted website traffic. And this traffic all starts with your link building.

Many people say that all you need to do is build links pointing back to your web site, and just use your related keywords in those links, it don’t matter where you get the links from.

But lets look at the example I used above. Your niche is about Golf Clubs, but you have joined a few forums asking questions, and have added your link to your signature to your golf club site. People click over to your golf club site from that forum. They aren’t interested in your site, they just wanted to see what’s it about and that’s it.

If that link was on a forum related to your niche, those people would have been targeted. Non targeted website traffic really lowers your conversion rates.

So what’s the point I’m trying to make here?

When doing your backlink building, always place your links on related sites. It helps to get the best targeted website traffic and that link will also count for more in the SERPS when it comes to your website traffic rankings, and is this not what we all want?
