How Do We Get on the First Page of Google Search Results?
What magic is needed to get your web site to rank in the first seven results in major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN?
The good news is that it only takes work, no special magic, to have your web site show up in the first seven search results for major search engines. (Special SEO magic helps, but it works better if we do the ordinary work first.).
1. Find your market on the Internet - competitors, products, services, keywords, customers, channels (web, email, RSS, SMS, Twitter, ...)
2. Build great content that speaks to your customers in a natural way, using semantic clusters of related keywords.
3. Attract and build great backlinks to your web site.
There's a lot more SEO magic we can do, but these steps come first.
