How Do I Get On The First Page Of Google?
There are many reasons why Google might put you on their first page and there are reasons why they will not. Is your website mobile friendly ? How has your website been built ? How relevant is the content on your website to the question being asked by the searcher ? How “trustworthy” is your site ? Do you have an SSL certificate? How many competitors do you have ?
Google prefers websites that are mobile friendly. If yours is not then it is a good idea to update it now. Websites can be built in many different ways. They may look good when viewed on screen but it is the code behind the scenes that is important. If that code is badly created then your website will struggle to achieve a good ranking.
If there are a lot of websites that are equally relevant, what makes your website “trustworthy” enough to be displayed above them ? Google “trusts” websites that have some age to them and are linked to social networking sites. A new domain might struggle to rank against others that are well established.
A Page 1 ranking is normally achievable but it may take time and dedication. Ranking on Page 1 locally, perhaps for the Edinburgh area will be easier than trying to rank on Page 1 for all of Scotland, for all of Great Britain, or for the whole world. If you get on Page 1 you then you need to try and stay there.
Effective SEO can help your website achieve all this. At Forth SEO we will try our best to get your website onto Page 1, but nothing can ever be guaranteed.
