How do you get first page Google ranking for your site?

It’s relatively easy if you follow a very simple plan.  But you have to be consistent and make sure you leave nothing out.  Do you get first page Google ranking?  … keep reading!


Do You Get First Page Google Ranking?


It’s all about SEO or search engine optimization, and it has everything to do with where you will rank!


Yes, there are more things to do and pay attention to that will add even more power behind your optimization, but if you do just the few things listed on this page, you will get noticed!



Follow these steps, and you WILL succeed!


  • Remember that Content is King
  • Focus on only one keyword phrase per page/post
  • Be sure your keyword makes sense – i.e. to real people reading
  • Choose your keywords carefully – go for what they call “Low Hanging Fruit” or long string keywords.  They Work!!!  Many discard these and go for broad terms, but they are wrong to do so – they will be competing with “the big boys” and will generally get absolutely nowhere, ending up on page 20.  No one usually looks at the results past the 2nd page of Google!
    I use the keyword tool Jaaxy to find these.  It’s excellent at finding these search terms and determining their probability of ranking high. (… if you training or want to learn more about affiliate marketing try Wealthy Affiliate for free.)


Make sure your keyword is in:


  • the page title – as close to the beginning as possible
  • the page url (if you can)
  • the page heading
  • in the first paragraph
  • in the meta description (what Google shows when searched)
  • in your content – but use it naturally and don’t spam – don’t over use it!


That’s It!

Simple yet Effective – Guaranteed!


It really isn’t more complicated than that!
Some may want to tell you you need “seo services” to catapult your site into stardom – you don’t!  They just want your hard earned dollars.  But it does take work – it’s not going to happen all by itself.  You have to keep at it, but it will most definitely happen.

Another important aspect to good seo is content –  Relevant content, and the frequency with which you add it.  Adding posts to your site daily (or at least several times a week) will have a huge impact on the way Google sees your site.  They will begin to view you as an authority and give you a higher ranking.

and remember …   A Relevant Keyword to a Relevant Page

    “First Page Google Ranking…” is a great read. Helpful info here. Keywords have been a struggle for me. Wish I had found your site sooner. Good website. Keep up the good work.

      Hi Loretta!

      Thanks so much for your kind comment!
      Keywords are huge – and they should be used (and not overused) as outlined.
      It really just comes down to good original content, proper keywords with proper usage, and persistence.

      If you have not yet learned about the keyword tool Jaaxy, you can read about it here too!
      It has helped me so much and I would not want to be without it.

      Hi Jack
      … thanks for stopping by!

      Yeah – it really is a lot easier than most people might think. You just have to follow a few simple steps, and be consistent with it.
      The continual use of long-tail-keywords and the addition of new original and relevant content will get the results you’re looking for.

    What a great post on the proper use of low hanging, long tail keywords and their overall importance.
    Thanks for pointing out about not stuffing keywords into your content, many folks go overboard in that area so they are writing about not much more than their selected keywords, which is not very helpful and Google will take note and demote a site accordingly.

    Thanks again, my best,

      Hey Gary!
      … yeah, that’s not the thing to do at all for sure. Google does not like keyword stuffing and they will “slap” you for it; plus it usually makes for a horrible read!

      Thanks again!

    Content is king! thanks for a great post – and great read

    Have a brilliant day!

      Hi Karina!
      … thanks for stopping by.

      It’s easy if you follow the steps.
      And remember like you said “content is king” – but it should be restated as “Your Own Content is King”!

    Hi Joanne,
    Great post, I love the way you keep it simple. The long string keywords or keywords with not much competition are definitely the best, even though they may not have much traffic. It’s better to be on the first page of Google and have some traffic than on the sixth page with no traffic.

    • Joanne January 29, 2015 at 5:59 pm - Reply

      Hi Peter

      … Exactly!
      Guaranteed traffic – and those keywords are quite easy to find with Jaaxy.
      I have actually found some of the “long string keywords” with quite a bit of traffic potential!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Joanne,

    You have provided more really useful information here. My biggest fault is that I seem to be unable to write regularly enough and spend too much time researching in too much detail. I’m a Virgo, that’s probably why!

    Apart from content, I reckon that usefulness is king. Great post!

    • Joanne January 26, 2015 at 11:56 pm - Reply

      Hi Rob

      I know what you mean about writing regularly. Some days it can feel like pulling teeth to get something written.
      Nothing wrong with detail though, just don’t let it consume you to the point where nothing get “put out there”.

      Hahaha – Apart from content, I reckon that USEFULNESS is king – I love it!

    I like to use the Alphabet soup for it gives me a lot of options for keywords.

      Hi Randy

      … thanks for stopping by!
      I like and use the Alphabet Soup technique a lot too! It can give some great ideas for both topics and keywords.
      I plan on doing an in-depth article on this in the near future for those who may not be familiar with it.

      Don’t forget though, that you still have to follow the proper steps to get that first page listing!

      Take Care

    Hi Joanne,

    You are right on the long string keywords. I have doubts about them when I started because they have such low searches (sometimes zero) in Jaaxy. But in the past one month, I am starting to see an increase in traffic on my GWT. Now I am more convinced to move forward with those keywords.

    • Joanne January 25, 2015 at 5:18 pm - Reply

      Hi Cathy!

      I know what you mean. What, focus on long string keywords? In the beginning I wasn’t to sure about it myself – but the thing is it works! Often times you can find “low hanging fruit” terms that actually give you quite a bit of search traffic. I agree with you about Jaaxy. It’s a really good tool in keyword research and one that I’d never be without again.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Joanne. It’s unbelievable how you can take simple steps to get first page ranking. This is a nice article not only for beginners, but for people who may need a quick refresher course on this.

      Hi Tina!

      … and thanks for your comment.
      Sometimes you just have to pay more attention to “the basics”. Good consistent practices from the start will produce some really great results.
      I took a quick look at your website – awesome. I think you’ve done a good job and should see some nice traffic coming your way.

    Yes I have gotten on the first page of Google using the strategies that you have discussed. The is great information.

      Hi Wendy!

      Thanks for stopping by!
      … it’s really as simple as that isn’t it. A lot of people will try to sell you all kinds of programs and services, but they are NOT NEEDED!
      Just a good ole fashioned “best practices” does the job!

    Great post, I will make sure to follow each and every one of these steps on my site, thanks

    Great job. Content is main element in getting rankings. Keep up the good work.

      That phrase is so true – Content is King !!!

      Hey, I see you’re a Steelers fan – I live in New England, so of course I’ll be rooting for the Patriots next weekend. And no, I don’t believe in “Inflategate” – hahaha

      Thanks Robert!

      Yeah – that’s what it really comes down to.

      Relevant and updated content is going to put your site way in the lead – it’s hard work at time, but it produces results!
