1. Focus on Content
Number one is content. Google wants you to focus on the content; Google wants you to niche down.
Google doesn’t just want you to write about anything like today you are writing about WordPress, tomorrow you’re writing about Nike stocks, another time you’re writing about how Kanye West did this or how to get into a relationship online. It’s been long since google actually tolerated stuff like that, but now Google wants you to niche down;
I mean, you can always spread your wings and write about niches related to yours.
Let’s say your major focus is on WordPress, you can also write about Shopify, and maybe in some of your blogs, you can talk about Squarespace, don’t just go writing a whole bunch of non-niche related obnoxious stuff. Google does not tolerate that at all.

2. Optimize your title tag and your meta description
Have you ever done a Google search and noticed that there is the link at the top every time you do it, and then there’s one sentence with a link at the top that is called the title tag, and the description below is called the meta description.
Now think of it this way, if you search for the phrase online dating, and you don’t see the word online dating in neither the title nor the description, are you going to click on the result?
Well, if you are, there’s something wrong, because why would you click on a result that isn’t related to what you’re looking for?
In addition to that, have you ever searched for a term like online dating? And have you ever noticed that the word isn’t in the title or description?
That’s because Google tracks who’s clicking on what listing, and they’ve learned that when a keyword is in the listing, that same keyword that you’re searching for, they know you’re way more likely to click through.
So in your title tag and your meta description, make sure you include the keyword.
Don’t just put it all over, wishing you would get more clicks.
Yes, you have to include the keyword in your title and your description, but it has to be appealing. If it doesn’t flow in a sentence, it is not easy to read, always consider the human element also, not just the algorithm.
3. Search Consoles
Number three is search console tools. Google has a search console tool known as google search console.
So how do you use this?
Let’s say you create a blog post, and whenever you create a post or even create a page, you have a new URL. You can just go to the Google Search Console page and submit that URL.
Once you submit the URL, you request Google to inspect the URL so that the crawler gets the URL to Google as fast as possible. Once you get the crawler to crawl the URL, it appears on Google faster.
You can also use the Bing Webmaster. Bing has its own webmaster tool like a Bing search console.
If you type it into Google, you see it. Bing is another great search engine people don’t use it a lot, but Bing is actually very great, and one thing Bing focuses on is images.
So whenever you create your images, make sure you have the alt tags on them. Make sure the pictures themselves are properly tagged because Bing reads that a lot.
That’s what I found out. You have to do the same thing like Google search console whenever you create a blog post; just go there, paste the link there and click on inspect and just request indexing.
Talk To Me
Bonus: Use Schema
The last one that some people don’t want to talk about is very necessary; it’s called schema. Schema is structured data.
Whenever you create a blog post or you create something, there’s something that is a schema.
For example, there is a question and answer schema “people also ask” in the above picture. If I click on it, that website will view me even if I don’t click through that website.
This basically is classified as schema, So schema is very necessary. What you have to do is use a relevant schema.
Do you want to get it real quick? If you’re using a WordPress website, you can head over to wordpress.org/plugins and just type in schema once you type in “schema” on your WordPress dashboard.
You can use schema & structured data for WP and AMP. Yoast SEO also has a schema.
So if you have a WordPress website, download Yoast SEO and install it onto your WordPress website, and once you have done that, you can go.
At the bottom of it, you can always see like they have a place where you can just put in the schema. So lets Google know what type of article you wrote.
