Improve Your Site Speed

Do you know that site speed can impact your ranking in search results and it’s one important ranking factor in Google’s search algorithms? How long does it take the pages on your site to load? The excellent page loading rating is 1.3 seconds once it takes your page loading times more than this, know that it’s going to impact your search ranking negatively.

If you’re experiencing low speed on your site try and conduct some evaluation into the theme and plugins installed on your site by using the Markup Validation Service to assess each of the plugins and the theme.

Make sure to also evaluate how you use images on your site lest this causes low site speed which may hurt your ranking seriously. Endeavor to use the original size so to prevent too many HTTP requests from being sent across and to ensure that images are not loaded multiple times due to the reduction of pixels.

Publish Informative Content Frequently

You must ensure to publish highly-informative content frequently as this will surely help you build Page Rank for your site at the earliest possible amount of time. What do you understand by creating informative content? It’s such a piece of content that contains a lot of useful tips and ideas for readers.

Why do you need the frequent publishing of content on your site? You need it for getting higher ranking as the content is the only food that Google loves so dearly. So, if you want to find favor with Google, don’t hesitate to post high-quality and engaging content on your site every day.

Adopt a Responsive Design

Responsive design is such a simple site design that wouldn’t let your site experience a poor page load rating. To be sure you’re using the right design for your WordPress design, don’t hesitate validating it through the Markup Validation service.

Choose Low-Competition Keywords

If you want your content to rank fast in search results, endeavor to always do keyword research and choose low competition keywords for all of your content. For the sake of quality in research, don’t hesitate using Jaaxy – the most integrated, yet, the best niche & keyword research tool in the industry.

While searching through the keyword research tool, make clear references to metrics such as Quoted Search Result (QSR), Keyword Quality Indicator (KQI), Article Power, Monthly Traffic, Average Searches, SEO, and all of that. They all determine the right keywords to use for your SEO content.

I’ve tried a couple of keyword research tools online long before I stumbled at Jaaxy. It’s been a wonderful keyword researching experience with Jaaxy for about a year now.

Update Your Site with Fresh Content

“Freshness” is an important term that Google loves so much when it comes to building a site for search engine ranking. So far you’ve realized that content is king and creating it every day would be greatly essential for building Page Rank for your site, there’s no cause for alarm.

Take time to practice writing once you find it hard to write. Create a thousand words article per day on the word document and get used to it after some time to improve content building on your site.

Get Inbound Links From Authority Sites

Inbound links are external links you get back to your site from other websites. It’s as crucial as content for building Page Rank for a website and you can get lots of high-quality links from niche-related authority sites out there.

To start building high-quality links for your site, don’t hesitate to use high PR online forums such as Warrior Forum and the likes. Create threads frequently, reply to posts under your threads as soon as possible, and help folks out of one challenge or the other in the course of doing their own business.

Above all, remember to add your website URL as the signature which appears at the bottom of every post you create across the forums.

  4. Hello, great article. I’ve tried Jaaxy and am learning how to use it. What’s the number one thing to keep in mind to get the best results out of your keyword searches?

    Regarding site speed, what do you recommend to keep it optimal? I’ve heard low numbers of plug ins helps? Does back linking pages decrease you site speed? 

    On that same note, what is the major benefit of adding your website URL to each post or page and would is be your home page URL that would be best to add?

    Thank you,


  5. Hey i really enjoyed your article, it was very informative.  I still have a lot more work to do now, i just created my second site which is a niche site so i have to go back through the steps and get it on google and try to bring in that traffic.  This is a niche i do know a lot about and i do have a youtube channel where i talk about this niche and a lot of people needs help with it.  So hopefully this site does better then my first one.

  6. Hey Israel very informative information on how optimize my  website for Google. At present I am in the process of building out my website and all will mean nothing, if I am not noticed by Google. 

    Your point 5 on updating  my site with fresh content is a really good tip.  It  truly resonated with me .

    Because I think its all about giving  persons an awesome and engaging  experience when they visit our website. And the best way I can do that is by fresh content that they could use and tell their friends about. 

     I appreciated point 7.  Adding video presentations and topically-relevant images to your content. I understand the power of images but I did’t think about video presentation. Thinking about it. If a picture paints a 1000 words imaging what a video presentation can do. 

    Israel thanks again for the info.


  7. Great information! These are just the tips I needed for getting my website optimized for Google! I checked my site speed and it was seriously lacking, so I have been working on improving that. I’m also working on adding video content that is relevant and suited for my site. Adding content frequently has been a problem for me, but I do see the importance of it if I want Google to recognize my site and put me up toward the top of the SERPs!

  8. This was an informative article on many aspects of how to best optimize your website for Google and other search engines as well, for that matter. Google is the big one, of course, so if you do the steps mentioned in this post, you pretty much will be good to go with the other search engines.

    It makes sense to take the steps mentioned from a user perspective. You want the UX (user experience) to be as good as possible so they stick around to see what you have. I can use myself as an example to show what I mean. I just added a comment on another post on this website.

    Because the site is attractive (layout) and easy to navigate, this article was also of interest to me. Rather than click away to another site, I stayed here and now am adding a comment on this article! That is the power of having a good SEO program in place.

    If you are a blogger, and putting in lots of effort creating good content that people are looking for, it just makes sense to take the additional few steps required to get the most out of your work. The author of this post has laid out quite a few easy steps you can take.

  9. Hi and thanks for this informative post. There seems to be some criteria I have to take a closer look at.

    I just had my homepage checked with the NU HTML checker and a ton of errors and stuff came up. I don’t know what to do right now but will have to get into the subject for real.

    Writing content takes most of my time so I don’t take enough care of my site health probably 🙂

    • Hello Stefan, thanks for stopping by and kudos for your comment! Much grateful! Most things that cause the errors with our websites include the plugins and themes we installed on them. In order to get rid of these and for our websites not to keep getting hurt in the ranking aspect, it becomes necessary to always use the Markup Validation service/checks before installing any theme/plugin. Thanks for your lovely visit!

  10. Very helpful article indeed, thank you for posting.

    I have 2 websites in different niches and comparing them, I noticed that the one that has a lot of content is doing well in google rankings. Google definitely likes more content, relevant and helpful, that is. I would really love to publish one article daily but due to time constraint, I just can’t. So I am trying my best to publish once or twice a week. Is this an acceptable publishing frequency?

    Before I leaned about optimizing images, it never crossed my mind that big images will affect my site speed. I installed a plug in to automatically optimize every image I upload. At times I also reduce the images online for free before uploading them. 

    Speaking of publishing informative contents  and using low competition keywords, other than using post titles that start with “what,” “why,” or “how,” what other kind of eye-catching titles can we use? Mind sharing your ideas?

    • Thanks for stopping by, Alice! Kudos for your valuable comment! Yes, Google loves detailed and informative content and wouldn’t hesitate to improve your site in the search results. And for publishing frequency, posting once or twice a week would be regarded as a publishing frequency for you so far you’ll make frantic effort to maintain it, though you’ll rank better with writing every day if this had been feasible with you.

      Yes, other than using the post titles starting with “, “What” “How”, and all of that, you may want to consider creating list posts which start with “Top 10”, “Top 100”, and the likes. They rank faster than other content formats in the search engine.

      Thanks for your authentic comment!

  11. What great tips. I know that optimizing the site is so important. I check my site periodically, and I find it’s mostly the images. I have to run image optimizer quite often, but it’s a cheap price to pay for a faster site.

    The other recommendation about getting recommendations from an authority site is also great. That comes because they find your site is quite relevant and significant which drives up your ranking. 

    • Thanks for your valuable comment, JB! Much appreciated! Most people have realized that the All-in-One SEO plugin has stopped working for image optimization since the introduction of the block editor.

      To my knowledge, the issue is not really attributable to the newly-introduced editor but to the fact that some people have really installed so many third-party malicious plugins on their sites as a result of which toxic codes have been installed which is now slowing down their site loading speed.

      Thanks for your lovely post!

  12. Thank you for providing such an informative post.  The tips you provide here are just what I need to take my site to the next level.

    The hardest part for me is posting content on a regular basis.  It’s not so much coming up with the content as it is just following through in a timely manner.  This has been one of the biggest reasons my site drops in the search engine rankings.

    Thanks again for this.  I’m bookmarking it as my to-do checklist as I produce more content.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Merlynmac! Kudos for your comment! You’ve said it all by emphasizing the fact that writing frequently is most challenging generally, whereas, is the most working strategy as far as getting ranked in the search engine is concerned. Content is King and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

      The thing Google loves the most on your blog is the detailed, informative, remarkable, highly-engaging, high-quality, helpful, and useful content you create from time to time. I’ve created a series of training at WA that clarifies how anyone can get through with the challenge of writing content frequently. Thanks for your lovely visit!

      Israel Olatunji

  13. Wow, this is incredibly useful for me. I just recently started and while I know content is king, there are tips there I don’t know about. I didn’t even think about using forums to create inbound links! I do have a couple of places to go to, but it’s pretty hard to start posting about my site even though I do have a rep there. Do you have an article about responsive design soon? I’ll be looking forward to it! Thank you for writing this!

    • You’re much welcome, Murasa! Kudos to you for the awesome comment! As you continue in the business building out content on your blog, you’ll be getting to improve more and more in the blogging knowledge and initiatives. Yes, forums are a great place to get high-quality links especially if you post to high PR online forums out there.

      Posts about responsive designs are coming up soon on my blog. You’ll start seeing them soon. Thanks for the passon! Kudos for the comment! See you at the top of the online world soon!

      Israel Olatunji

  14. Can you tell me a bit more about inbound links? I’ve read a few conflicting opinions about the topic and I’m kind of confused as to whether or not I should be spending my time building links or writing content, or maybe a little bit of both?

    Does it matter if the links come from forums or from places like Reddit/Quora? It seems easy to get links like that, but does Google actually count them?

    • Thanks for your valuable comment, Craig! Kudos for the reading!  When it comes to optimizing your website for Google, the best way to go about it is to do the most needful first which is writing the kind of content that is keyword-optimized, informative, and topically-relevant. Then, you may consider building high-quality links from high PR online forums, Quora and the likes. These are the best places to get high-quality links which Google counts. Thanks for stopping by!

    All seven tips and strategies were really easy for me to understand and follow through. You gave great explanations throughout the article.
