One Simple Trick To Get Ranked Higher On Google

If you are a blogger, you might be thinking about the ranking of your site. Do you know what one of the easiest ways to increase your rankings are?

Well, if you look at a site called Mashable.com, they rank for almost everything on Google. Why?

They don’t have as much authority as TechCrunch.com, because TechCrunch has so many more backlinks, but what I can tell you is, Mashable does a much better job of internal linking, and that’s why they rank so high.

Today, I am going to tell you how to increase your rankings through internal linking.

If you look at some high ranked sites, you will notice that they rank really high for simple terms like ‘online marketing’.

You might be probably wondering, how did they do this?

It wasn’t through building links through external sites, in which other websites are linking to them.

It was mainly through internal links.

Every time they write a blog post about online marketing, they make sure that they link to their main guide, that discusses what online marketing is.

Link Within Your Sidebar

The next thing you should do, is link within your sidebar.

If you look at any blog post page, on any high ranked site, and you scroll, you will notice that in the sidebar, they link to all their guides.

One of them might be ‘online marketing’.

As you can see, that link is visible, and it’s pretty much on every single page on those sites.

By passing a lot of internal links to that page, it’s telling Google that hey, value that page and feel it’s important, and for that reason Google is like, okay, because you are putting so much emphasis on this page, we should rank it higher than your other pages.

Now, the key with doing this is, you can’t have this link hidden, so some people like

putting it in tabs, or showing it really in
small text, or font size, or making it invisible.

You don’t want to do any of that stuff. That doesn’t work well. That worked in the early 2000s.

That stuff now can hurt you and get you penalized.

You want to make sure the link is visible, and it’s on every major page of your site.

Link Within Your Content

So, all you have to do is follow two steps:
one link within your content, and when you are doing this, don’t always use the exact keyword.

Make It Flow Natural

Just don’t use the keyword you want a rank for.

By putting too much anchor text in there, the anchor text being the keyword you want to rank for, sometimes you will notice that your rankings will actually drop.

So, by making it more natural, Google will notice that, and your rankings will rise faster.

Link To Your Most Important Pages

The second thing is: make sure you are linking to your most important pages, within your sidebar of every page.

Follow those two steps, and you will rank higher in search results through internal linking.

These small tips help to grow gradually in long term. You should try and test these small things one by one.
