Tip 2: Google Analytics:
The next thing that I would is set up a google analytics account. This allows you track all kinds of information that takes place on your website - Such as
- Who is visiting your site
- How long they stay on your site
- The bounce Rate of your site
- How you attract users (Such as referrals, direct hits, social media and organic traffic)
- How are your active users trending over time
- How well do you retain users (Bounce Rate)
- When do your users visit
- Where are your users
- What are the top devices that users are on when they visit your site
- What pages do your users visit
- And so much more...

Tip 3: Keyword Research:
One of the best Keyword Research tools that I have used is called ubersuggest. This is a free keyword tool that allows you to search long tail keywords and also see the keywords that your competitors are using to rank their websites.
Tip 4: Add Keywords to your content:
Once you find out a list of your keyword you want to put them in the content of your website or blog.
Example: I type in SEO Ranking and for search results I get:
- SEO Ranking Checker
- SEO Ranking Tool
- SEO Rank Monitor
- SEO Ranking of a Website
The goal is to add these keywords to the content on the web page or blog that you are trying rank in the google search engine.
I have applied these simple steps and my websites are getting more clicks, more visitors, more impressions and they are climbing in the google search engine.
