How to get to the top of Google instantly

The easiest way, and the ONLY way, to be at the top of Google IMMEDIATELY is to run successful Google Ads.

That’s a sure fire way to rocket past your competition and sit comfortably on the throne.

Of course, it takes money to get there, and it’ll take money to keep you there. If you find yourself in a competitive niche, you’ll need quite a large bank account to stay at the top.

You were looking for a free or cheap fix, right? The reality is, the top spot on Google is determined by the one with the most cash.

The problem with instant ranking

Here’s what you must keep in mind with Google Ads and instantly ranking top spot.

The moment you switch off your ads, your ranking tanks.

It’s GONE.

Your position at the top is based SOLELY on the amount of money you’re willing to pay.

That’s why our solution makes more sense.

But let’s first look at what you mustn’t do to increase rankings.

How NOT to rank higher in Google

What are you to do if you can’t afford to run Google Ads?

Here’s a solution: buy an article spinner, get someone to write you a cheap $5 article, and run that article through the article spinner.

Then pump your website full of spun articles.

All in all, you’re looking at spending maybe a few hundred dollars.

But it’s a great idea, right?

It depends.

See, if you take this route, you’re doing Google a favor. However, you’re also doing those of us serious about long term online marketers success a favor.

However, it’s not a favor that’ll put you in good standing with Google. In other words, Google won’t pat you on the back for being a marketing star.

Here’s why…

Google has a thriving anti-spam team, always on the lookout for the latest search engine marketing schemes and scams.

When you spin articles, you’re arguably creating some of the worst content on the web.

It might work for a while, but if and when Google jumps you for your questionable practices, you’ll pay a price far greater than the few hundred dollars you paid for your DIY hack.

It’s a terrible way to boost your search engine rankings.

It seems like a good idea, but you’ll do people like us, who take the longer, better route, a favor by making it easier for us to rank when your junk is eventually downgraded or removed from Google.

How to rank higher in Google without paying for ads

Here’s a completely free and legal solution to your ranking woes: add quality content to your website, and do it consistently.

That’s the only way to naturally rank higher in Google without paying and without invoking the wrath of the Search Kings.

But sometimes saying is easier than doing.

Perhaps you look at creating content and think you’d be better off living with rabies.

Maybe you’re one of those people who think writing anything more than a single line on WhatsApp is akin to climbing Mt Everest while being beaten with chainsaws.

Nevertheless, the reality is, if you want to rank higher, you’ll need good content.

If you can’t create it yourself, you’ll need to get someone to do it for you. Like us.

Part of our game is creating quality content to help people like you rank higher in Google.

Why this is a great solution

Although this solution doesn’t guarantee immediate success and takes time and commitment, there’s one thing that makes it stand out far above paid advertising.

It has incredible long-term value.

A well-written blog post has YEARS of life. Literally, YEARS.

A Facebook post has a five-hour lifespan. It can’t begin to compete with a proper website article.

How to know if you’re ranking better

The only way to know if you’re actually climbing to the top of Google is to have access to metrics.

If you opt for one of our web packages, it comes installed with Google Analytics, as well as a weekly report showing you crucial information.

This’ll give you a great picture of your traffic and whether you’re excelling or slipping.

The search function

This ties in with your metrics.

Occasionally, you think you want to rank high for a specific search phrase, but you’re interrupted in your journey to the top by a marketing insight that shows you should be aiming to rank for something else.

All our client websites come with a search box that records what people are searching for when they use it.

It’s a great way to see what the market actually wants.

So if you’re trying to make your way to the top for keyword X and you notice people searching for keyword A on your site, you can adjust your content and maybe reach the top of Google quicker.

How to stay at the top of Google

To stay at the top of Google takes hard work.

You can’t write one masterpiece, sit back and revel in the ranking glory.

It won’t be long before someone comes along with better content and kicks you off your throne.

You can prevent this by consistently working from a content calendar.

In other words, if you have the time, sit down and create an editorial calendar for content related to your niche.

Rigidly sticking to your editorial calendar, start adding quality content. And don’t stop.

And when an idea pops into your head for something you could be creating content about, add it to your calendar without skipping the other content.

That’s the only way to consistently rank at the top of Google for a variety of searches.

If this seems like too much work for you, we can help. We can work out a content strategy based on your products or services that’ll ensure consistent traffic flows to your website.

How long does it take?

How long is a piece of blue?

Every so often you’ll see results almost immediately, other times it might take months or years before you start seeing favorable results.

You’ll find online marketing success in this formula: be an expert; sound like an expert; repeat.

If you want people to trust you, make them see you’re an expert in your field.
