  • Make a plan for your website. What content do you want do have on your site? What do you have to offer to the Internet?
  • Stick to your plan and don’t change everything all the time. Search Engine’s remember links you have removed for a very long time. Missing links make you look bad.
  • Make a fast a simple website. If your website takes forever to load, it will damage your ranking at search engines.
  • Create a good title and description for your website. Other Meta tags can be helpfull as well, but title and description is the most importent.
  • Behave well – Don’t trash other people or link to un-wanted sites with pop ups, virus or malware.
  • Add your website to Goggle Analytics and Goggle Webmaster tool.
  • Create a Sitemap for your website and add it to Goggle Webmaster tool.
  • Content, Content and Content – The best way to get success with your website is to create good quality content.
  • Link building – Create external links to top quality websites. Good quality-links make you popular, bad links make you unpopular.
  • Incoming links – This can be the biggest task to complete, but also a very powerful one. If you want to be known on the Internet you need someone to tell people that you exist. Your need other site to link to your site. But not just anybody. Again good sites linking to you makes you look good and bad sites linking to you makes you look bad.
  • Start blogging. Blogging on other sites or forums is a good way to make people notice you if you put a little signature on your post with your website URL. This will be a good start for your site to be noticed. Again behave…! Don’t spam and only write in forums and blogs that are somehow related to your site.
  • Be patient, it takes time to be popular on the Internet. It might take weeks or even months before your website begin to appear in search engines even if you follow these steps above. Use Goggle Analytics to keep track on your progress.
  • All this above might seem like a lot a work and it is. There is no shortcut and you can’t buy your way to be number 1 at Google. Only a fast high class website with a lot of link from other great websites to yours, can make your way to the top.

    About inbound link, Google officially says that bad incoming link don’t affect the website, otherwise anyone could downgrade a website of a competitor simply making a link building campaign on bad websites.
