Make it Rank



“If you optimize it and it’s relevant for the keyword, it’s probably going to rank.”
~ Liana Evans, KeyRelevance

I attended a writing conference in 2012 where I attended a workshop by author Megan Breedlove. Megan’s website has held the number 1 ranking spot for multiple keywords on Google for several years, so I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. She said that getting a higher up Google ranking isn't about just one thing, but several things working together. 

Here’s a list she gave us of contributing factors:
* Whether or not you are meeting the needs of your websites visitors
* Whether or not you continue to meet their needs
* Keywords
* How often your homepage is updated - keep it fresh changing links, content, etc. monthly
* How often your website content is updated - updating content weekly gives you a boost
* Linkbacks - having other people link to your site is the #1 way to raise your Google ranking
* Website contents - be sure to include contact info and an about you section
* Google SEO and XML site map
