That’s a tough one to crack but I landed on page one in the first 5 days on Google for one of my health blogs.
How did I achieve this ?
Buy choosing the right domain name that is linked to the theme of the site , Google gives high ranking priority to sites that have relevant domain names based on teh theme of the site or blog. Now that doe snot mean that blog or site with irrelevant domain names dont get high ranking, its just that the domain ranking factor basedon the Google algorithm ranks high.
For the Health Blog i took a domain that related to my theme , hired an elance writer to write about 10 articles on the blog. I never did any linking activity or any promotion to drive traffic to the blog.
After a week i saw that Google displayed my site on the 10 th rank on its first page. After about 10 days it moved to 9 th rank for the term ” Healthy Eating “. Today the blog ranks 7 the for “Health Eatings , however it also shows up ranking for “Healthy Eatings” at number 8 this shows that the Google Algorithm does differentiate between plurals ( or the additional s) in the search rankings.
So the next time to put up a site make sure you have done your keyword research before you register a domain.
An exact match domain is just your first step to geting your site noticed by Google. Once you have the domain you need to back it up with some link building activity for your site. The nicher your site , faster you can get ranked in Google since competing sites for your keyword will be less.
