Hey, welcome to a post like you’ve never read.
Don’t you love those titles… you know, that the moment you see them you instantly know it’d be the best read?
Well, this is one of those articles… just read on.
Before we get to the hunger games guide to SEO, and give you the power to rank on page one of Google any time you want, you have to realize it’s all about the title.
You might be like:
How’s being entertaining related to SEO?
Not only is it related, but it is the first thing you need to take care of if you ever want to become as good as Katniss Everdeen… or better.
You have to optimize your articles for clicks before all.
How to do that?
Glad you asked
Pretty easy actually – just head to Amazon (or any place like that) and take a look at the best sellers. They all have cool titles, pick one, change it to suit your readers and use it to name your article.
Do that several times and each new article you write will be more and more interesting to your readers…
…and that means more clicks and more time spent on your site – things Google just love.
Alright, enough about the title, let’s make that hunger games SEO guide a list to make it easier to comprehend
1 Make everything as simple as possible
How’s that for a start?
I told you this was an article like you’ve never read.
What do I mean?
SEO is pretty simple when you follow the right formula (which you are already doing, just have to follow all the steps), you don’t have to read every article you stumble upon, because thinking is the opposite of acting…
…and when you read too much, you get confused, you start over-thinking stuff and you do almost nothing.
I’ve searched my seo articles If you have that need to read all there is about SEO, there you go:
2 Absolutely buy the SEO Course by Jon Cooper
Sadly, the course is no longer available to purchase… and I can’t seem to find anything as valuable for 67 bucks. I’ll come back and post it if I do… meanwhile you can go on reading the article and all the seo articles on the blog.
Look, I’m not just saying it like that. If you knew me even a little (if not, get to know me, enter your email in the form to your right, I love meeting cool people and since you are reading this, you obviously are such), you’d already know I don’t recommend anything I’m not absolutely sure will transform your business…
…that’s just who I am, I don’t like fluff. If you invest in one tool, invest in Point Blank SEO.
I’m not gonna list all it does, as it will take me like a few days, you can head over here and take a look.
You just can’t handle your SEO without this course.
3 Manufacture your link profile
I know I know, they say you should write wonderful content, sprinkle some fairy dust and all your links will come naturally…
…well, good luck with that.
The truth is you have to build links, and you have to be smart about it. Google count links, and as long as it’s a search engine, they will continue counting links.
Yeah, huge sites lime mine rank without links (you’ll see how at the end of this article), yet my blog has become what it is because a lot of other huge sites have been linking to me throughout the years.
You need links to become huge… and rank even before you are huge.
There are a lot of small sites on the first page of Google not because they the have the most social signals or comments, but because they have links pointing to them…
…and because sometimes awesome content is on smaller sites.
Google find that great content by counting the links to these sites.
How to build links the smart way
It’s actually again pretty simple just like everything else… those who complicate it don’t know that much about it:
-build relevant links – that means links coming from related pages
-build a mixture of high PR and low PR links (yep, PR is still a factor)
-build a mixture of relevant and not so relevant links
You need to have all types of links pointing to all your pages built at the right velocity.
If you only get high PR links, Google will penalize you since it would be quite obvious something is not right.
No article has only high PR links pointing to it (maybe there are, they sure are not on page one of Google).
Are you like: “Ok, got that, but how do I build those links”?
Don’t worry, I got you
There are a million ways to build links, and I know you’ll be smart enough to buy the course I told you about, as it is always up to date what works and what doesn’t…
…I’ll give you some ideas too though:
– Personalized videos
– Link building tools (use with care)
4 Be entertaining
I told you in the beginning of the article this was important and now I’ll tell you why.
I haven’t seen anybody talk about the importance of being entertaining and to tell you the truth this surprises me since it’s one of the most important things if you want to not only rank high in search, but to be successful online.
Two key factors for content to be right for the first page of Google are CTR and time spent reading that content…
…which is why you have to write fun articles with awesome titles.
When I first started blogging I was all about the facts…
I was like: “first do this, then do that, then this, than that”
And although I was talking the truth and the articles were gold, no one actually read them.
Then I started writing my posts as if I was talking to my readers, just like I’m doing now, and my pages started ranking even without backlinks due to the fact people were clicking on my links in Google and reading my articles.
Just do a search for Cheap Facebook PPC, Make Money CPA or Ninja SEO tools, or Cpa marketing, or teespring guide (have a lot of posts on page one ranked with no backlinks whatsoever) and you will see what I mean.
Be entertaining, people want fun even when searching for not so much fun topics.
I’ll leave it right here, as this is the perfect formula to becoming SEO friendly, Katniss Everdeen said so LOL.
