The Top 4 Ways to Increase Your Website’s Google Rankings



To keep your site’s rank at the top of the Google search engine result pages for your keywords, you need do four things:
  • Facilitate social signaling through creative content creation
  • Optimize your web design
  • Provide easy access to social voting buttons
  • And acknowledge the growing importance of Google Plus
While creating backlinks may have improved your Google page rankings in the past, you are now better served to make your pages more popular on social media.

Importance of Authorship Markup

Prior to its latest updates, Google got fooled by unethical webmasters who figured out how to exploit its search engine’s emphasis on backlinks. The post-Penguin search engine has numerous built-in defenses to thwart marketers seeking to create fake social signal structures such as bot-produced Facebook “Likes “and “+1s” and commercially purchased social media links. Among these is authorship markup.
Google’s search engine gives more weight to web pages when it can verify they were written by the original author, rather than copied from another or auto-generated by an article spinning program or some other inorganic method.
Adding authorship markup to your high-quality pages will improve your page ranking. Because Google now keeps track of the pages you claim as the author, it can recognize your future pages, give you credit for the high-quality content, and give additional weight to pages it is confident are 100% original.

How to Build Authorship

If you used WordPress to create your page, build authorship markup by using the free WordPress rel=author plug-in.
If you used another site to create your page, there are a few additional steps. The first is creating a Google+ account. Make sure to include a photo of yourself when building your profile because whenever you include authorship markup on your pages, your picture will be listed next to your page’s Google search result.
Then simply create a link to your web page and your Google+ account and verify that link via your email. More comprehensive instructions are available on the Google+ setup page.

Social Signals and Page Ranking

Social signals can improve your webpage’s ranking when they come from real, verifiable users of social media and social bookmarking sites. As a result, the more contacts you have on social media, the more likely they are to “vote” on your site, improving its ranking.
Expand your social network by becoming more involved in social media. For web page owners, social media isn’t just a fun way to keep up with family, friends, co-workers, former schoolmates and other acquaintances. Given today’s web page ranking reality, being popular on social media is an absolute necessity to promoting your business or website.
Where to Focus Your Social Media Efforts
If you want to stay on top, you need to raise your profile at least on the Big 6 social media sites:
  • Facebook
  • Google+
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • YouTube
YouTube currently is the second largest search engine on the internet. If you don’t already have accounts with these sites, you need to set them up today, especially Google+, and learn how to use them.
Making the Social Media Connection
Next, you need to link as many of these sites together as possible so that an activity on one will simultaneously occur on all the others. WordPress has a free plug-in that can handle most of these sites. There also are commercial programs you can purchase.
It’s also critical that you maximize your social media contacts. A fast way to do this is to always include a link to your social media sites on any type of collateral or content that you produce.
Send requests to as many people as you can, especially those who have some connection to your product niches, such as members of forums, niche-related fan pages, Google+ “Hangouts” and Twitter groups.
Finally, encourage your existing customers to add you to their social networks and incentivize them with a free giveaway or discount. Whenever possible, always ask them to “Like” you on Facebook or “+1” you on Google+.

Facebook’s Predictive Analytics – A Love Story

Did you know that Facebook can look at its user’s posting patterns and moods in order to predict their future romantic relationships?

As a posting on the blog FierceBigData put it on February 19, 2014: “‘During the 100 days before the relationship starts, we observe a slow but steady increase in the number of timeline posts shared between the future couple,’ writes Facebook data scientist Carlos Diuk in his ‘The Formation of Love’ post.

‘When the relationship starts (day 0), posts begin to decrease. We observe a peak of 1.67 posts per day 12 days before the relationship begins, and the lowest point of 1.53 posts per day 85 days into the relationship. 

Presumably, couples decide to spend more time together, courtship is off and online interactions give way to more interactions in the physical world.

Facebook as Cupid?

To put it another way, Facebook knows before you do when you are going to become a couple. It certainly knows long before you announce it on your relationship status.

Send emails only to the people who would like them
 A lot of the reason that your email marketing may be looking like it is failing is because you are probably sending your e-mail to the people who don't want them. 

Individuals who get your e-mails, but don't want them usually end up deleting them without opening them or marking …
