Killer Tips to Increase Search Engine Traffic by 213% in 2017
1: Create Awesome and Long Content
Yeah! We are tired of hearing that Content is King. Want an opinion on this? Yes, it really is.
Without the right type of content, no matter how much backlinks you have made or how much you have done the On-page SEO, you are going to receive penalty at the end.
The main purpose of your content always must be to please your readers with the information they need and for what they have come to your blog.

If your blog content doesn’t provide value, visitor will take no time to close your web page and visit the next one. And it directly affects your bounce rate. Bounce rate itself isn’t the measure to show your web page in Google with good rankings.
It just clarifies that whether or not the visitor liked your content. And if the visitor close your web too soon, then you are gone from the SERPs.
However, if your content is longer and of good quality then it will definitely rank and blow out competitors websites. Generally, longer content is also more likely to be perceived excellent by your visitors.
Also, Google will appreciate your site too.
Note that I haven’t said Backlinks! Backlinks! And Backlinks!. Why?
Because its the quality of backlink that matters not the quantity.
Always remember the quality while you are going out in the field to make your niche relevant backlinks.

Along with good quality, backlinks must be from the site relevant to yours. Because a backlink will pass more juice to your site if its more relevant. Relevancy has also become another ranking factor in Google 2017.
To check whether if site will pass you more juice or not or has some authority, go to Open Site Explorer tool.
Enter your target site, and find out the DA and PA of the site you wish to get a backlink from. The more the DA and PA, better the backlink would be.
3: Use of Keywords Wisely
Don’t miss the chance of optimizing your article by putting the targeted keywords in heading tags, title and permalink.
But make sure to not mess with Google by doing unethical techniques like keyword stuffing or creating backdoor pages etc.
With the right of targeted keywords in content, synonyms of targeted keywords can also help you rank for some relevant terms.
4: Meta Description
It may not be a big factor for ranking on the first page of Google but still it does matters a lot.
Most of the webmasters and bloggers leave this field blank. Remember that you can always get more CTR from search results if you really have an outstanding meta description.
I have also seen many other SEO experts recommending to use full potential of Meta Descriptions. That’s why don’t forget it buddies.
URL structure is really a important factor in the field of search engine optimization. It can help you rank for your targeted keyword.
Putting your keyword in permalink for 2 to 3 times doesn’t works. Just write it in permalink only one time with some other natural words uttering out of your mouth.
Stop using underscores in the permalinks and start using hyphens (-).
With the exception of this, its also recommended to make your URLs short as much as possible.
6: Optimizing the Images
Carelessly ignoring the images? Yes?
No, please don’t say that you are ignoring images. They are the key part of your on page optimization.
Make sure to do proper optimization of images by putting the relevant alt tags, title tags. Plus use descriptive file names of images like “seo-training.jpg" instead of 342342,jpg. You can check these 5 tips to optimize images for better on page SEO.
7: Internal Linking and External Linking
The most overlooked part of SEO by webmasters.
Linking to other articles on your site and helping some blogs (linking to their articles) could help your other articles on site get crawled faster.
Whether linking to competitors blog articles can help Google to know what’s your site is about?
External linking also help you to build strong relationship with other bloggers. You can read this post 5 ways to build relationship with fellow bloggers to improve your blog visibility instantly.
8: Better Anchor Text
Diversify your anchor text and be safe from Google.
You can diversify your anchor text by using niche relevant keywords anchor like the beginner guide along with generic keywords, click here, check here etc.
Remember: Anyone who is caught red-handed doing over optimization is straight away penalized by Google.
9: Fix Up Broken Links
Broken links on your site can make you look as a bad kid with lot of stains on his shirt in front of Google.
It gives Google the clue that your site is outdated and you’re not noticing to it anymore.
10: Get Some Social Boost
After putting on an informative article on your blog, get ready to give some heat to your post from social media site like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube etc.
Social bookmaking can also help your site getting upwards into the Google stairs (SERPs) and also these kind of sites are generous enough to send some decent amount of traffic to your site.
