How To Write Content That Ranks Page #1 on Google :
____________________________________________

The first is outdated content.

Google prefers fresh content. I want you to look at those pages that were doing well and go and update them. And by refreshing up, making them better, you're going to rank much better versus taking your old content and just leaving it there.

Google wants all the content on your site to be great and updated because it's not just one page ranking on its own, it's your whole site. Google is looking at your whole site as a whole, and when it's all buttoned up and perfect, you're going to do much better.

The second thing that's hurting you is pages with thin content.

So what I want you to do is go to all the pages that offer little to no value, look at them.

If you think they offer value, that's fine. But if you don't, I want you to either A, update them and make them more in-depth, or B, 301 redirect them to other better pages that are more in-depth and offer a much better user experience. Make sure you assess each and every single page through Google Analytics. Look at how much traffic it's getting before the change and after the change. Look at the bounce rate, look at the time on page. These will all give you indicators if that page is good or bad or needs updating.

The third thing that's hurting you, excessive or irrelevant ads.

Ads make users leave a website if it impacts user experience.

So it's not bad to have ads, even Google has ads, but you want to make sure that they blend in, they're nice, they're not too crazy in how they look, and they're not distracting the user. And if you look at what Google is doing with their ads, that's a perfect example of how ideal you want to blend ads throughout your own webpage.

The next thing that's hurting you is automatically generated content.

What you need to do is create content that provides the best experience out there and not just from the perspective that is not automated, but you need to look for all the other pages that are ranking for the term that you're going after and be like, hmm, is my content going to provide more value than theirs? And if you're unsure of how to evaluate that, go to Ubersuggest, type in the keyword that you're looking for to rank for and write about. On the right side you'll see all the pages that rank on the top, the backlinks they have, the social shares, and their domain score.

This will give you a good understanding of what users like as well as what Google likes, because just because a site ranks number one or a page ranks number one, it's not always what users prefer.

The next thing you need to stop doing is intrusive popups or interstitials.

Now that doesn't mean that you can't do popups, I use them, but typically you want to save the popups as an exit popup. So an exit popup is upon leaving, that's what people see versus upon entering. And what you can do is if you have lead magnets is you can promote it within your content, a top of article, a bottom of article. It's still a way to collect leads without being intrusive.

The next thing that's hurting you, irrelevant internal links.

So you want to make sure that you're choosing internal links that are relevant to the content and the page that people are going to read. Don't just have tons of rich anchor text, don't just have a ton of random anchor text, do what's best for the user.

The next thing that's hurting you is duplicate content.

And when I'm talking about duplicate content, I'm not just talking about word for word plagiarizing what someone else has already written, I'm also talking about writing the same piece of content that's been beaten to death a thousand times.

  1. Does your website have any of the things I’m mentioning in this video? Tell me which one you’re going to remove today.

    1. Apparently a dumb question with no reply. 😉
      I did break up my brands using multi site. My “external” links across my brands is starting to help my SEO.

    2. I’m going to 301 redirect all my pages in the news archive that are more then a year old, nobody is interested in old news and they get almost no traffic anyway.
      I kind of knew this already but it was more passive knowledge now seeing your video it just hits me that I have to do this ASAP. Thanks for this video!

    3. If there are so many sites on banana nutrition and I also created a blog on banana nutrition because I had some new facts and provided them in a better way, will my blog/website still rank lower in Google because I am talking about banana nutrition?

  2. *Neil bro r u really good God bless you and be happy always dear brother love u Jai Hind pl msg me if possible on my Insta*

  3. Thanks Neil… I think I’ll have some time to do these suggestions as business is slowing down in the current situation.

  4. Thank you for the lesson. You are a good teacher just like my primary school H/M who was also Patel. Thanks again and cheers.

  5. Thank you so much for this great video on improving a blog to make it rank better, Patel! I’m much grateful for the wonderful job done. In fact, it has helped me a lot.

    1. Neil patel your company ubersuggest ripped me out of a 10USD, i never used your services,i canceled my acount , cancelled my subscription, i double checked that it was cancelled, and you still took money out of my card with no permission, and no receipt, i need my refund please.

  6. I’m in the middle of upgrading my old content. Unfortunately, I keyword my one content and it went from page 16 to page 52 of Google 😬 although I went for less competitive keywords.

    1. Make sure you’re not changing the blog entirely! You mostly just want to add to it or update content that isn’t optimized.

  7. Hey there, really great & informative video! Love all your videos, also thanks for making ubersuggest free!
