Why is Google so Drama? 5 Secret SEO Tactics to Help You Rank Higher

Although social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram attract a lot of attention, search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing still drive the most website traffic for businesses. SEO has always been an important asset for your digital marketing efforts, and nothing has changed. Well at least when it comes to SEO being important, but SEO and how to get your site to rank high, has changed dramatically. 

Why does Google have to be so drama?

We say ‘drama’ jokingly as that’s a trait from humans; but is it? As the technologies, AI and machine learning advance, computers are becoming closer and closer to human interaction. Not just generating it, but recognizing it. Search engines utilize these skills to try to deliver the most real and relevant results, based on your search, and their parameters. 

The best SEO is creating items humans will truly benefit from and want to engage in but, search engines are still computers and there are secret items we can utilize to increase rank and stand out from your competitors. Here are 5 SEO secrets you’ll want to know.

We'll go through each direct process for improving your search ranking, as well as ideas for increasing reading duration and Click-Through Rates (CTR), all of which can affect your Google rating.

Don't Overstuff

Over the years, SEO algorithms have changed drastically. Earlier days, you could get away with strategic keyword placement, but Google's machine-learning AI algorithms may now examine your website in the same way that a person would. 

The most effective spot to start is usually with a quality article. Put across your content in a way that is enjoyable to read. Make no compromises, such as weirdly formed sentences or unnecessary keyword additions that make your article or product page more difficult to read.

Qualitative Outbound Links 

Outbound links can also help you get to the next spot higher in the search results, although this strategy is far from ideal. The objective is to strike a balance between providing excellent service to your visitors and extending their time on your website. As a result, it's essential to link to high-quality sources with high page and domain authority. Both Google and your visitors will love it.

Add Numbers

Aside from using sentiment and brackets, adding numbers to your titles is also a good idea. Odd numbers appear to do better than even numbers. 

For example, instead of identical blog pieces with 4 or 8 in the title, you'll find more 5 or 7 tips articles. When the numbers in your title are part of a promise, the stakes are even higher: 'These 5 Things Will Boost Your X by Y!'

Use Brackets 

The use of words in brackets to clarify a title may positively influence the CLick-Through Rate (CTR). Try including the information in brackets at the end of a captivating title.

For example: 

'Gaming addiction has increased in young people in the United States [Research].'

You may also use it to refer to material from a multimedia system: [podcast]. It's a good feeling to be included in a list of search results that (appears to) entirely consist of text material.

Infographics for Backlinks 

In its search results, Google takes visual media into account. This indicates that a website containing various (related) images, videos, and infographics will rank better in search results. Infographics have an added benefit in that other websites frequently share them. Consequently, you'll get helpful inbound links, which will help your ranking.
