Gain Greater Rankings in 2018 (Review, Rework, Revise)
The 3 R's for better page rank
When we first begin our online business it's all about learning, trialling, editing, falling over (at least it was for me) and getting back up again.
First and foremost is "create content"
Content that is helpful, answers questions, provides information and creates your loyal following. Our time is devoted to the creation of original creative text and targeted to keywords meticulously researched.
And this all takes time! Right?
Then there is the eager anticipation of page 1 ranking and traffic flooding to our site and affiliate offers.
However as your website develops. And the content creation becomes ever so much easier, and your Seo knowledge grows along with your keyword research... Time to relax?
Not a chance
It's time to review, rework and revise
Now this may sound obvious and perhaps you're already doing it.. But take some time to read on
When I first started I was really really really proud of my original posts. They were original and targeted to my niche. I spent hours creating them, finding perfect images and graphics and setting them up in easy to read chunks.
They were awesome
Well awesome to a newbie who didn't really have a firm foundation
Many ranked.. Some even page 1...but many didn't... Its disheartening
So after 3 years of my website being live... And probably in a moment of remembrance... I went to my site and started reading my original posts
What did I find?
The majority were awful
I couldn't believe it.
Those posts I was so proud of were dreadful.... Badly structured... Badly composed and the seo was rubbish...
Not to beat myself up I realised that at the time with the information I had... They were good (hmm maybe... Possibly OK)
So I spent a few hours and reviewed them, reworked them and revised them.
I added the correct keyword and seo template...
I added correctly optimized images with alt text
I regrouped paragraphs and realigned graphics
I added new thoughts and I improved them
I properly formatted social sharing and grew traffic
And guess what?
It took way less time than creating new content
It improved my site
And they all ranked page 1 in less than 24 hours... Most had been way beyond page 10 beforehand
So... If you're struggling with new content ideas or your site has been live for a while... Or both
Do yourself a favor and go 3 R your old content
And please please let me know the results
To your ultimate success
